    2 days ago by brownpapernutrition We're having a week without sandwiches in lunchboxes so I've popped what Jet will be (likely...we'll see how my baby brain goes come Thursday ha!) eating each day up on the blog. This was Monday - leftover schnitzel from Sunday night dinner (we had both chicken as the boys love it and cauliflower for me) with salad including cucumber and avocado. Recess - mandarin, lemon and honey jellies and capsicum. Also if you haven't done cauliflower schnitzel for your families yet it really is a must - kids in particular love it!

  • Created this beautiful Hazelnut Chocolate Cake with Nut Butter Frosting
    21 hours ago by brownpapernutrition Created this beautiful Hazelnut Chocolate Cake with Nut Butter Frosting not long ago and I think it might be time to get it cranking for my dad or sister's upcoming birthday... out of control delicious - definitely hitting the recommended daily serve of nuts too! Did you know the recommendations is a mere 30g of nuts which is about a small handful but only a minority hit that target? Pack a small container which will last you for 2 days in your bag / back pack / car wherever and enjoy them as a healthy, hunger crunching, fibrous, essential fatty

Cacao hazelnut risotto with quinoa

Risottos aren’t only a lunch or dinner kind of meal they can absolutely be a dessert or breakfast! I’ve combined my go-to protein charged grain, quinoa, with the creaminess of coconut milk, bitter but delicious raw cacao and sweet spice cinnamon in this risotto to give it a sweet edge without the heavy sugar load. You can enjoy it as a nourishing dessert with any kind of fruits (I love stone fruits) and if you’re lucky enough to have some left over, the next day for breakfast too.

 

SWEET QUINOA CACAO RISOTTO

Serves 2

Gluten free : Dairy Free : Vegan : Paleo

1 cup quinoa, rinsed

1 cup coconut milk

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1/4 cup raw cacao powder

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

2 1/2 tablespoons rice malt syrup

To serve: (optional)

1/2 cup hazelnuts, roughly chopped

1/4 cup toasted coconut flakes

Grilled fruit or berries

Add quinoa and 1 cup water to a small saucepan, cover and bring to boil on stove.

Reduce heat and remove the lid, add coconut milk, vanilla, cacao and cinnamon and allow to simmer for 10-15 minutes or until quinoa is tender and there is a small amount of liquid remaining to keep the risotto loose and creamy.

Stir through rice malt syrup.

Serve into bowls and top with hazelnuts, coconut flakes and berries or fruit as you wish.
