That’s warm & filling for your very hungry tum.
Take you Split Peas and give them a good rinse and sort through
Put them in a pan adding 3 cups of water to every 1 cup of Peas too.
Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for 30-40 minutes or so.
And whilst cooking have the diced onions in a pan ready to go…Give them a good glug of oil & season with your favourite herbs and spice,
Keeping it simple we thought just salt, and mixed pepper would be nice.
Then when the onions are soft and the lentils all done
Add them to your blender and for the best bit of fun….
Whizz the mixture around until you achieve this great mash yellow and bright…
…And use a circular food mold to create a wonderful neat sight!

And voila! Enjoy, your GREATfruit that is sticky and grilled!

Here ladies and gentlemen is just what you need:
Cocoanut-date bites that you can make with speed!!
We have a handful of dried pitted dates (though fresh would work too),
And hemp seeds, currants, raisins and sultanas (though any seeds nuts or dried fruit will do.)
Then a heaped spoonful of cocoa, milled seeds and coconut oil – each one spoon,
Then blend everything together and you’ll smell that wonderful taste soon!
Then take spoonfuls of sticky mixture and roll into balls bitesize
Then roll them around in a bowl of dried coconut – a snowy sight before your eyes!
Leave in the fridge to set over night – a recipe so simple and sweet!

White Peeled Potatoes
Sesame seed Oil
2-3 Organic Limes
Here’s a fine way to eat your Sunday Roast Pots sprinkled with lime slices, ground pepper and sesame seeds – lots and lots!
Just quarter the potatoes, drizzle with oil, seeds and slices of lime
And leave on 180 degrees for about an hour of time.
And voila! They should have soft centres, and crispy edges a little brown,
And there you have without a doubt the most delicious Roasties in town!
Salt and Pepper
Here’s a simple recipe that’s colourful and neat
Ladies and gentleman – let’s turn up the Beet!
Soak Butterbeans over night in a large pot
We use our soak and strain bowl we love it a lot!
Then rinse and wash the beans and slowcook in a pan
Or buy ready cooked organic butter beans if you can.
Mash the butter beans and season as you wish,
And put them aside in a small separate dish.
Do the same with the carrots and beetroot too,
Make sure they’re all seasoned and mashed right through.
We used lemon juice, some pepper and salt from the sea,
You might add some cayenne pepper too if you like it spicy.
Mix the beet, beans and carrots together in a bowl and mix,
Add seasoning then blend, stir, taste and repeat to fix.
Then when your mixture is just right fill up your burger press
Which makes thick burger size portions that won’t look a mess!
It works just like a stamp you fill it at the top
Then turn over and press down and out burgers pop!
Press them down onto a greaseproof paper lined tray
Beautiful Pink Bean Beet and carrot burgers HOORAY!
Then place them in the oven on a medium heat
When they are golden and crisp they are ready to eat!
It usually takes about 30 to 40 minutes to make,
Make sure to flip them half way when you bake.
Ladies and gentlemen let’s stuff a marrow,
Bring in that large one you left on your wheelbarrow.
Get a carrot, a leek, some squash patty pan.
Some tomatoes, a pepper any roast vegetable you can.
Then half the marrow and let us prepare it to roast,
Deseed and score it and drizzle over the oil you like most.
Then preheat the oven to two hundred degrees,
Sprinkle over some salt, pepper, whatever herb agrees.
Then take your squash, deseed and slice of the skin
And chop into little chunks as many you can fit in.
Then do the same to the carrot and drizzle over with oil and spice,
A little salt, pepper and oregano we thought was quite nice.
Then pop the marrow, carrot and squash into the heat,
Cook for thirty minutes until soft and crispy enough to eat.
Roast the tomatoes, leek and pepper sliced too,
With a little drizzle of oil 15-20 minutes should do.
Then mix together all the vegetables and take a spoon
and stuff into the marrow until the sight makes you swoon.
Et Voila! Something simple, a tasty warm roast
Another colourful warming, rhyming blog post!
