  • EGGPLANT MUNG BEAN CURRY Making this one because Ive not
    2 days ago by brownpapernutrition EGGPLANT MUNG BEAN CURRY: Making this one because I’ve not been able to stop thinking about it but also to store in the freezer for post partum meals which are easy to pull, defrost, nourish and restore. The eggplant gives a really substantial element to this curry, complimented well by mung beans. Mung beans are some of my favourites for curries, they have a delicious flavour, but also deliver significant amounts of fibre, plant based amino acids for protein, iron and interestingly a dense amount of folate too. Folate (Vitamin B9) during pregnancy is required to help reduce the risk

  • TERIYAKI NO MEAT BALL BOWL  of delicious satisfying happiness!
    1 day ago by brownpapernutrition TERIYAKI (NO) MEAT BALL BOWL - of delicious, satisfying happiness! Pickled onion are a staple in our fridge. I use an apple cider vinegar base for it and it's literally ready in 20 minutes for whichever meal I like and then keeps in the fridge a few weeks... if it lasts. Best way to pimp up a meal, adds valuable prebiotic fibres and quercetin to the diet and sans raw onion breath too - win! The (no) meatballs are made with quinoa, beans and mushies and absolutely heaven. Make please! Popped the full recipe on  @bodyandsoul_au  beautiful humans. J xo

SWEET POTATO AND KALE DHAL

GF:DF:SF:V:VG

This recipe is based on and inspired by that of my wonderful friend Jody Vassallo from her book Beautiful Food.

Serves 4

 

1 1/4 cups split mung beans or red lentils

1 tablespoon finely grated ginger

1 teaspoon ground turmeric

1 teaspoon black mustard seeds

1 teaspoon garam masala, plus extra for sprinkling

1 small dried red chilli

1 bay leaf

6 curry leaves

1 teaspoon sea salt

1/2 tablespoon coconut oil

100g cherry tomatoes, halved

2 tablespoons ghee

1 tablespoon lemon juice

1 cup chopped roasted sweet potato (Jody uses pumpkin)

100g kale leaves, stalks removed and roughly torn (Jody uses spinach)

basmati rice and lemon wedges ,to serve

 

Put the split mung beans or lentils, ginger, spices, chilli, bay leaf, curry leaves, salt, oil and cherry tomatoes in a large saucecpan, add 3 1/2 cups water and bring to the boil over medium heat.

Reduce heat to low and simmer for 20minutes, until the beans or lentils are just soft. Don’t overcook them, you don’t want mushy.

Remove pan from heat, stir in ghee, lemon juice, sweet potato or pumpkin pieces, sprinkle with extra garam masala, cover with a lid and allow to stand for 5 minutes.

Serve with basmati rice, lemon wedges and an extra sprinkle of garam masala. I added a few coriander leaves too but that’s up to you!
