    2 weeks ago by brownpapernutrition Sooooooooooooo testing some CINNAMON SCROLLS at the moment and there ain't no complaining in my house about it SUCH a yummy winter treat with a mug of warm ho-cho, chai, tea or dandy - have you tried dandelion tea? Kinda tastes like coffee but without the caffeine hit and made of dandelion root which can help support healthy liver function too, it's delicious - hunt it down if you haven't! Making these with a beautiful spelt flour and plenty of cinnamon (obv) but trying to avoid the extra sugary component on the top - once they're peaking I'll share the

    2 weeks ago by brownpapernutrition Rainbow platter I made to kick off our big friends lunch last weekend... one of my favourite things to make!  #saysthataboutallfood  Mixed it up to suit all tastebuds - a combo of dips with some dukkah over the top  #fancy  veggie sticks  #hellsyeah , tamari almonds, olives, seed snaps, pickles  #theobsessioncontinues , a few cheeses, crackers, and some baby radish! In a world where we are so 'connected' yet so disconnected at the same time, I truly cherish having my nearest with me to share beautiful food. Eating with joy is powerful for your health, make sure you disconnect from other distractions

ZUCCHINI FLOWER RISOTTO

GF: SF: V

Serves 4 as an entree

75g butter

1 tablespoon olive oil

1 onion (150g), finely sliced

2 garlic cloves, finely sliced

1 (170g) zucchini, grated

1 cup (200g) risotto rice

1 litre vegetable stock

6 zucchini flowers

1 bunch asparagus, spears cut into 3’s

1 cup pecorino, shaved

1 tablespoon oregano leaves

 

Heat the vegetable stock in a small saucepan.

Heat the olive oil and 15g of butter in a medium sized saucepan. Add in the onion and garlic and cook slowly for 7-8 minutes. You want them to soften but not brown. Add in the grated zucchini and continue to cook slowly for a further 7 mins.

Increase the heat and pour in the rice. Cook for 2 minutes, stirring continuously until the rice is slightly translucent.

Add in the first ladle of stock and a good pinch of salt. Reduce the heat to a simmer and allow the liquid to completely absorb before adding in the next ladleful of stock. Continue this process one ladleful at a time, checking the rice as you go. This process should take approximately 15 minutes. When the rice is almost cooked add in the zucchini flowers and asparagus so that they blanch in the liquid.

The trick is to leave a small amount of liquid when you remove the risotto from the heat. Once cooked and removed from the heat stir in the remaining butter, shaved pecorino and oregano leaves. Season well and place a lid on top and allow to sit for 2 minutes. Remove the lid and serve.
