  • 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,
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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,
  • 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

Vegetarian Zucchini Cannelloni

Gathering a few yummy vegetarian dishes together that will bring some wow to the table, well any night really, but in particular leading into the festive season too! I’ve made these delicious vego Zucchini Cannelloni with ricotta and herbs and popped them on the most scrumptious Italian veggie ragu using Macro’s NEW Italian flavoured Textured Vegetable Protein from @woolworths_au. The Macro Italian Textured Veg Protein in this dish is a great meat alternative that is high protein, high iron and high fibre – vegan friendly too! What are some of your favourite meat substitutes?

 

VEGETARIAN ZUCCHINI CANNELLONI 

Makes 10

Gluten free : Refined Sugar Free : Vegetarian 

1 packet Macro Textured Vegetable Protein ‘Italian Herb’

1x 400g tin chopped tomatoes

2 tablespoons salt reduced tomato paste

6 medium (750g) zucchini

1 egg

375g ricotta

1 clove garlic, crushed

2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil, plus extra for garnish 

2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley

2 medium (160g) carrots, grated

In a bowl combine Macro Textured Vegetable Protein with 1 cup (250ml) boiling water, stir and set aside to absorb for about 5-8 minutes. Once water is absorbed, heat a frypan on medium heat, add Macro Textured Vegetable Protein, tinned tomatoes and tomato paste, stir and bring to a simmer for 10 minutes. Heat oven to 200C. Slice the zucchini using a vegetable peeler to create ribbons, leaving about 1cm of core in the middle (you can snack on this with some dip whilst you’re waiting for your Cannelloni to cook so they don’t go to waste). Whisk egg in a bowl, add ricotta, garlic, basil and parsley and mix. Pour Italian Textured Vegetable Protein mix into a baking dish, ready to top with cannelloni. Divide zucchini slices into 10 even groups, then on a chopping layer the zucchini slices for one cannelloni along side each other, slightly overlapping so they will hold together. Add 1 heaped tablespoon ricotta mix to the middle of the zucchini, then peel zucchini up, over and continue rolling, keeping quite tight. Place in baking dish on top of the Textured Vegetable Protein Mix and repeat with remainder of ingredients. Cook in oven for 25-30 minutes and serve sprinkled with extra herbs.
