  • CAJUN TOFU SCRAMBLE BOWL WITH SWEET POTATO HASH Thought I
    5 days ago by brownpapernutrition CAJUN TOFU SCRAMBLE BOWL WITH SWEET POTATO HASH... Thought I would miss soft cheese, mussels and prawns the most during pregnancy, turns out I miss sprouts and juicy rockmelon more! Go figure?!?!?!?! Maybe because over the past couple of years we've transitioned our diet so much more toward plants that the shellfish and cheese factor just isn't much a thing anymore, but humble ingredients that I probably didn't recognise were as present as they were are the ones I am hanging to be able to throw into meals again! This is a delicious scrambled cajun tofu bowl with sweet potato,
  • SECOND POUR TEA CHRISTMAS CAKE!!!!! My friends I have managed
    5 days ago by brownpapernutrition SECOND POUR TEA CHRISTMAS CAKE!!!!! My friends I have managed with huge willpower to stave off sharing this until December 1st so as to not completely bore you with my obsession with Christmas cake, but now the day is here and I am suuuuuuuuuuper bloody excited!!!! First the title - second pour tea - comes from my need to recycle the tea leaves in my tea pot in the morning for something else. You don't have to do this, just make enough tea for the recipe. Next the beauty of this juicy number is that you can legit have a
  • I cant even begin to describe how many Black Friday
    1 week ago by brownpapernutrition I can’t even begin to describe how many Black Friday Sales ads have landed in my inbox, social streams and around the city today and it got me thinking about how we as a society consume. I am not about to get on my soap box here but I do feel the urge to drop these thoughts ... rather than consume so many material things and buy up this Friday have a think about how you can consume in ways that will make you feel greater for longer. Consume KNOWLEDGE, consume the ARTS, consume REST, consume BELLY LAUGHS with buddies,
  • This year Ive had this absolutely wonderful human wholefoodhealing in
    1 day ago by brownpapernutrition This year I’ve had this absolutely wonderful human  @wholefoodhealing  in my life through our work together and I couldn’t feel more grateful or more aligned with someone in this space. She’s incredibly intelligent, highly motivated, compassionate and kind, with a similar zero bs approach to nutrition, health, parenting and life. We met studying nutrition almost 9/10 years ago (how on earth was it that long?!?!) and I remember thinking what a bright light she was st the time too. This year we created a series of successful, educational workshops with more to come in 2020 and we are in the
  • One of my favourite breakfasts  SWEET PEAR AND COCONUT
    2 days ago by brownpapernutrition One of my favourite breakfasts - SWEET PEAR AND COCONUT QUINOA, CARAMEL NUT BUTTER AND FRESH PEARS on top for the yummy crunch factor. Kicking the day off with a fibre fuelled, nutrient dense brekky like this one sets you up for the day with good energy, helps to stabilise your appetite throughout thanks to the presence of both soluble and insoluble fibre, plant protein and healthy fats, and is easily digested. The brekky is a cracking way to help feed all the wonderful good bacteria in the gut and keep things moving down there too! If you’d like the

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.
