  • Happily eating this brekky every day at the moment super
    2 days ago by brownpapernutrition Happily eating this brekky every day at the moment... super satisfying, wholesome, flavoursome and a great start in high quality nutrition to kick off the day. Here's what I do... soak quinoa flakes with coconut, prunes, sunflower seeds, macadamias, almonds, cinnamon overnight just with boiling water, then pop it together with whatever seasonal fruits are around but this week we had amazeballs strawberries and I used up the rest of the frozen organic raspberries in the freezer. Served up either with coconut or greek yoghurt, take your pick, obviously the coconut is a bit richer so I don't find I
  • This photo shows strength the next photo also shows strength
    3 days ago by brownpapernutrition This photo shows strength, the next photo also shows strength. They're strong for different reasons. It's important you see both. Most days I show up give and 250% but if on the next I'm wrecked I know my strongest card is giving myself permission to step back + not have the awful, heavy feeling that I'm not DOING or BEING enough. I don't keep pushing to keep a facade that I can have so much going on and still keep it all together. It's not possible to do so, yet so many of us feel we need to keep pushing
  • Super fun way to end the week celebrating theiconickids Birthday
    14 hours ago by brownpapernutrition Super fun way to end the week celebrating  @theiconickids  Birthday at the very iconic Luna Park. Stepped into my own kiddie element and had my hair braided too (have been told this morning that it’s “a bit embarrassing Mum ” ... oh ) Was actually blown away at how beautiful Luna Park still is and how they’ve managed to maintain it to so much of its original form. Lovely family time together, thanks for having us  @theiconickids   @theiconicau 
  • Went on a mission this year to create more delicious
    2 days ago by brownpapernutrition Went on a mission this year to create more delicious curries and whilst it's never going to be mission complete, it's definitely so much further than I had thought it would be - how good is learning right?! Most of my curries have been Indian flavours and dhal which are now becoming super easy because I have a simple method with the spices and then I more or less swap in whatever is in the fridge that week - different veggies, alternate proteins like chickpeas, tofu, lentils, on the weekend I cooked up mung beans and popped them in and

    4 days ago by brownpapernutrition SWEET POTATO NACHOS + PINEAPPLE AVOCADO SALSA: The most exciting soda to hit the fridge has officially arrived and to party with  @remedydrinks  TEPACHE I’ve created the most deeeeelish and as always nutritious dish to team up with it!!!!

Did you know pineapple is also a

Weekend favourite eggplant and mushroom sausage rolls

Let’s face it – sausage rolls and I have a thing… it is without doubt my love of pastry that inspires the different variations of vegetarian sausage rolls that emerge from the kitchen and because it’s not everyday the pastry craving is there, I am totally fine with diving into a wholesome, scrumptious, juicy veggie based sausage roll when that craving hits.

This sausage roll recipe I decided to give two very ‘meaty’ substantial veggies with plenty of that umami flavour a crack in the blend and they were for want of a better word absolutely banging.

While we’re here and talking these veg in particular – you’ll find my love for mushrooms and eggplants in these recipes too:

Now for the weekend lovin, favourite treat however………. because I’ve kept you waiting long enough…….

EGGPLANT MUSHROOMS SAUSAGE ROLLS

Vegetarian

Makes 12-14 small vegetarian sausage rolls

380g button mushrooms

600g eggplant (about 1 large)

200g carrot

3 cloves garlic, peeled

2 teaspoons sweet paprika

handful fresh parsley

130g (approx 1 medium) tomato, diced

1 1/2 teaspoons tamari

1/2 cup sunflower seeds

1/2cup (55g) oats

2 free range eggs, whisked + 1 for glazing pastry

2 sheets puff pastry

Place mushrooms, eggplant, carrot, garlic and parsley in a food processor and blitz to small pieces.  Heat olive oil in a large fry or saucepan, add mushroom mix, parsley, paprika tamari, cover and cook for 30 minutes on medium to high, take lid off and cook a further 10 minutes to make the eggplant a little more golden. Preheat oven to 200C and line a large baking tray with greaseproof paper. Remove veggies from heat, add tomato, sunflower seeds, oats and 2 eggs and mix together so the mixture binds. Separate into 2 equal portions and add to 1 pastry sheet at a time in a roll. Squeeze the mixture together well (so it holds once cooked) before rolling the pastry around it tightly. Repeat with second sheet. Whisk egg for glazing and brush over the top and sides of the sausage rolls. Place in oven to cook for 30-40 minutes or until deliciously golden and puffy. Serve with a rich tomato chutney.
