  • Finished my final work submission today a really bloody exciting
    2 days ago by brownpapernutrition Finished my final work submission today (a really bloody exciting one too!) before I take time out for birth and beyond yassssssssss bebe girl you is welcome to come into the world anytime... but preferably on the weekend when I’ve ticked a few more boxes of the stuff that needs to happen including putting my heavily swollen feet up somehow. I’ll be honest I feel a bit weird and nervous about taking a step away from my business for the next while, I have driven this engine for a solid 7+ years now and not taken any real extended leave,
  • TERIYAKI NO MEAT BALL BOWL  of delicious satisfying happiness!
    4 days ago by brownpapernutrition TERIYAKI (NO) MEAT BALL BOWL - of delicious, satisfying happiness! Pickled onion are a staple in our fridge. I use an apple cider vinegar base for it and it's literally ready in 20 minutes for whichever meal I like and then keeps in the fridge a few weeks... if it lasts. Best way to pimp up a meal, adds valuable prebiotic fibres and quercetin to the diet and sans raw onion breath too - win! The (no) meatballs are made with quinoa, beans and mushies and absolutely heaven. Make please! Popped the full recipe on  @bodyandsoul_au  beautiful humans. J xo
  • EGGPLANT MUNG BEAN CURRY Making this one because Ive not
    5 days ago by brownpapernutrition EGGPLANT MUNG BEAN CURRY: Making this one because I’ve not been able to stop thinking about it but also to store in the freezer for post partum meals which are easy to pull, defrost, nourish and restore. The eggplant gives a really substantial element to this curry, complimented well by mung beans. Mung beans are some of my favourites for curries, they have a delicious flavour, but also deliver significant amounts of fibre, plant based amino acids for protein, iron and interestingly a dense amount of folate too. Folate (Vitamin B9) during pregnancy is required to help reduce the risk

    21 hours ago by brownpapernutrition MANGO YOGHURT RICOTTA SLICE... cheesecake thing which I made with a few things in the fridge and inspired by my case of mangoes : ) I made it by whisking together 3/4 cup ricotta, 3/4 cup greek yoghurt, 3 tablespoons honey, 2 free range eggs, 2 teaspoons vanilla, 2 tablespoons chia seeds, 1 medium very sweet aka brown banana and 2 teaspoons lime zest until all creamy and delicious. Then poured it into a lined loaf tin and popped it in the oven at 180C for about an hour - or until a skewer came out clean and the top

Curry Spiced Sausage Rolls

Most of my sausage roll creations come about from leftover veggies, a handful of herbs and a well fuelled spice rack. I don’t ever recall going out and physically purchasing anything for them and that I think is the best principle when it comes to these things – especially when there’s some cheeky pastry to wrap around it like a present to your tastebuds. Having oats, eggs and sunflower seeds on hand helps here but no doubt you could do with breadcrumbs and whatever other nuts or seeds you might have for some crunch factor too. The final element to this one is the cucumber raita to dip these in – I just mix natural yoghurt with finely chopped cucumber pieces and some ground cumin, sea salt and black pepper. If you have extra cori throw that in the raita too – DELICIOUS.

If you love vego sausage rolls there are couple of extra recipes for my favourites:

CURRY SPICED SAUSAGE ROLLS 

Makes 12 mini sausage rolls

Vegetarian

2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil or melted coconut oil

5 carrots, trimmed and chopped into chunks

1 red onion, peeled and chopped into chunks

2 zucchini, trimmed and chopped into chunks

2 stalks celery, trimmed and sliced

1 1/2 tablespoons ground curry spice mix (I used an Indian Spice blend)

1/4 cup chopped coriander

2 eggs, whisked

1/2 cup rolled oats

1/4 cup sunflower seeds

1 cup frozen and defrosted peas

3 sheets puff pastry – I used spelt pastry

sea salt and black pepper

Cucumber Raita:

1 cup natural yoghurt

1/2 small cucumber, finely diced

small handful coriander, finely chopped

1/2 teaspoon ground cumin

Heat oven to 200C and line 2 baking trays with greaseproof paper. Spread carrots and red onion on one tray and zucchini and celery on other. Drizzle evenly with oil and sprinkle with ground curry spice mix and toss to coat. Place in oven to cook for 30 minutes. If zucchini and celery look as though they are browning too quickly just remove them from the oven sooner. Once cooked pop all the veggies, fresh coriander and oats in a food processor and blitz until broken down but not completely pureed. Transfer to a bowl, stir through 1 egg, sunflower seeds and defrosted peas and season with sea salt and black pepper. Divide mixture by 3 then place 1/3 mixture in a sausage shape on the first 1/4 of your puff pastry. Squeeze the mixture into shape and to make it slightly tighter and less likely to crumble when cooked, then roll the pastry over the vegetable mix, slice and place on a freshly lined baking tray. Repeat with remaining mixture. Brush all the pastry with egg and place in oven to cook for 40 minutes. Whilst cooking whip together the raita by combining all ingredients in a bowl and mixing. Transfer to a dip bowl, sprinkle with a bit of extra curry spice or ground cumin if you’re feeling special and serve with fresh baked Curry Spiced Sausage Rolls.
