    1 day ago by brownpapernutrition Our delicious menu  @brownpapereats  and a few words from me...I founded  @brownpapereats  because I wanted to create a means of nourishing people who just like me do their best to juggle a lot but sometimes just need someone else to look after them a little - especially when it comes to good nutritious food. There wasn’t much to turn to when all I felt like was a home cooked, delicious meal, full of nourishing ingredients, and so I wrote all the things I felt I would love to arrive home to after a big day and that is what has

    11 hours ago by brownpapernutrition Hello lovely ones, thank you for those who saw my insta-stories about the next round of rostering for  #themuffinproject  come  #theloafproject  and have volunteered to get involved. For those that didn’t see it, once a week for the past 18 months I have organised someone to bake muffins, and more recently we doing loaves too, which they then deliver to our local community support group for the homeless and less advantaged  @thewaysidechapel  which is in Bondi and Potts Point. You see what happens is at key moments like Christmas everyone wants to lend a hand and make food etc but

WARM BRUSSELS, EGGPLANT AND SPROUT SALAD

I love warming salads for this time of year when the weather is just a few degrees cooler but you still feel like lighter foods and this WARMING BRUSSEL EGGPLANT AND SPROUTS SALAD is the solution to that! #nailedit. All your flavour dreams come true with this one, oh my and the ingredients just make me one very happy nutritionist indeed. I’ll be honest the only thing missing is avocado which we didn’t have on hand but you can absolutely add! 

A few nutrition facts for you on the SPROUT kingdom going on here:

  • chickpea sprouts : rich source of plant based protein, bundles of fibre and just 1 cup contains 26% daily recommended intake of iron
  • mung bean sprouts : one of the highest in the sprouts for protein content (you can see a bit more of this kind of break down over here…) also rich in Vitamin K – essential for healthy bone mineral density and blood clotting
  • brussel sprouts : amazingly rich in Vitamin C and top of the ladder for glucosinolate content – glucosinolates are known for their cancer protective properties.

Need more convincing? I thinks not – dive in!

WARM BRUSSEL, EGGPLANT AND SPROUT SALAD

GF : DF : SF : VEGAN

Serves 4 

1 large eggplant (600g), cut into cubes

1/4 cup olive oil 

350g Brussel sprouts, halved 

1 cup (220g) Buckwheat

1/2 cup (130g) Chickpea sprouts

1/2 cup (130g) Mung Bean sprouts 

3/4 cup Coriander (½ bunch stalks and leaves)

3-4 spring onions, sliced white part only

100g baby spinach

Dressing:

1 tbsp tamari

1 tbsp sesame oil

½ tbsp maple syrup

½ tbsp apple cider vinegar

2 teaspoons finely grated ginger

Sea salt and black pepper

Preheat oven to 180C, line a large baking tray with greaseproof paper, place eggplant on tray, toss in approximately 3 tablespoons olive oil and season with sea salt and pepper. Bake for 45-50 minutes until soft and golden. About half way through, place brussels on a separate lined baking tray, toss with remaining olive oil and bake for 30-35 minutes. Place the buckwheat in a small saucepan on the stove with 2 cups water, bring to the boil, then turn down and simmer until water is absorbed and buckwheat is cooked – approximately 10-15 miutes. Fluff with a fork and leave to cool slightly. Combine dressing ingredients in a small bowl and whisk to combine. Place buckwheat, chickpea sprouts, mung beans, coriander, spring onion and baby spinach in a large bowl, drizzle over dressing and toss to coat. Arrange half the salad on a large serving plate, with half the eggplant and half the brussels and repeat.
