  • Someone please deliver me the weekend? Had to work all
    6 days ago by brownpapernutrition Someone please deliver me the weekend? Had to work all of last weekend sooooooo this hump day feels pretty ready to be a Friday. QUICK TIP for your platter endeavours as the festive season aka most hectic time of year fast approaches... Dips are rad and obvs super easy but they'll look a bit more fun if you pop different ones together in a bowl and spread them about a little, then give them a sprinkle of something.

  • Ok so you see haloumi pop up a bit on
    1 week ago by brownpapernutrition Ok so you see haloumi pop up a bit on my page - it's freakin delicious - but no doubt a few of you are wondering if it's 'healthy'. Well healthy firstly isn't restriction and avoiding foods that make you happy, e.g. haloumi, healthy is enjoying good food moderately and mindfully. Haloumi isn't an everyday cheese though 1) we'd probs go broke 2) it's higher in sodium than other cheeses and whilst a moderate level of good quality salt is necessary for our body we don't need to exceed the RDI of sodium by eating salty cheese everyday 3) whilst

ZATAR EGGPLANT, GREENS, BUTTER BEAN PUREE

Seriously cannot get over just how delicious this recipe is!!!! All my favourite ingredients and the za’tar flavours with the creamy butter bean puree are next level – butter beans add plant based protein to this dish. Remember protein comes from a variety of sources, and legumes are an incredible source of plant based amino acids – the building blocks for complete proteins. Enjoy folks!

 

ZATAR BAKED EGGPLANT, GREENS AND BUTTER BEAN PUREE  

GF : DF : SF : V  

Serves 2 

 

1 eggplant (300g) cut in half lengthways 

3  tbsp olive oil 

400g can butter beans, rinsed and drained  

1 small clove of garlic, peeled and crushed  

2 tbsp lemon juice  

 

Greens: 

½ cup baby spinach, shredded 

½  cup parsley, leaves picked and stalks finely chopped 

½  cup mint leaves 

2 tbsp (25g) currants 

¼ cup walnuts, roughly chopped  

 

Za’tar spice:  

1 tbsp dried thyme 

1 tbsp sesame seeds 

1 tbsp sumac 

1 tsp oregano 

sea salt and black pepper  

 

Preheat oven to 180C, place halved eggplant with 2 tbsp olive oil face down on a baking tray and cook for 40 mins.

Toss greens, currants and walnuts together in a small bowl with remaining olive oil. Combine za’tar ingredients in a small bowl. Once eggplant is cooked, divide the butter bean puree between two bowls, sprinkle with zatar spice, pop greens on the side and serve.
