A meal fit for any Quinoa King or Queen! 👑
- 1 large baking potato (or several little potatoes)
- Approximately 6-8 carrots. Though any number would be fine.
- 3 tsp Dried chopped basil
- 1 tbsp Dried chopped mint
- 3 garlic cloves finely chopped
- Salt/pepper to taste
- Olive Oil (optional)
- Ice Cream Scoop
Peel, chop and steam your potatoes and carrots until soft. Ours usually take 30 minutes
Place your steamed vegetables in a bowl with mint, basil, sliced garlic cloves and salt and pepper.
Finely dice your red onion…
Mash together and stir in the onion. Do not use a blender the potatoes will become all gluey! Then fill an ice cream scoop with the mixture .
And place the balls on a baking sheet or oven tray.
We added a little olive oil for extra crispness however this is optional. You could omit the added oil if using a non-stick tray.
If you’re placing the balls in a stone pan however it is recommended to use a little oil so the balls do not stick to the bottom of the pan.
Bake for 20-30 minutes depending on how crispy you like them!
These were in the oven for 30 minutes at 200 degrees. Just until they browned nicely at the edges.
Serve with salad and enjoy!
Ladies and Gentlemen here’s a delicious idea to give your meal a nutritious start…It’s so wonderfully vibrant it is edible art!
- Lettuce head with large leaves. We used Batavia, though Cos could work well too.
- Julienned or thinly sliced salad vegetables.
- Salt/pepper to taste
- Cocktail sticks
- Favourite dip/sauce (optional)
First wash out your leaves and lay them out flat..
Then lay salad items in strips…just like that!
We used julienned, cucumber, carrot, red onion and pepper too. Though you could add any fillings that you wish to.
Sprinkle a little salt and pepper for extra spice and roll the green leaf up like a wrap, oh it looks so nice!
We always find piercing a cocktail stick through the middle helps it to stay, so your delicious crunchy centres don’t unfold away.
Voila! There we go our wraps are ready and complete, ready for a delicious healthy bite to eat 👌
Here’s another tasty tip…Why not serve our lettuce wraps alongside your favourite sauce or dip?
It’s Bank holiday Monday and there is an all round vote for Pizza tonight… Alas! We are out of flour and so this poses a real dilemma in our household this evening…
Do Not Fear inspiration is here! We happened to find another jar of ground flax seed in the pantry earlier this evening 👌
- 1 and 1/2 Cups ground flaxseed/linseed
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 2 teaspoons oregano
- 3 tablespoons of oil
- 3 flax eggs ( 3 tablespoons of flax + 9 tablespoons of water stirred and left to solidify in the fridge for 15 minutes)
- 1/2 cup water
Flax seed measured into our mixing bowl….
Add all ingredients…
See that baking powder beginning to foam!
Mix all ingredients together and leave to thicken for 5 minutes…
Roll out mixture onto a silicone tray to desired thickness
Shaping this pizza fair and SQUARE ☺️😂 ( Well it became more rectangular actually!) then bake for 15-20 minutes
Et voila! The mixture solidifies and turns a wonderful brown crispy golden colour.
You can see that the base has solidified and begun to rise from the silicone sheet…
Now to spread our Perfect Pizza Sauce…
And apply toppings! First fresh organic leaf spinach…
…and now organic washed broccoli including thinly slicing the stalks…
…finally some sliced organic and washed yellow pepper
Completed with a sprinkle of salt, ground pepper and mixed herbs 👌
Into the oven for a further 15-20 minutes then your flax crust pizza is complete.
