Because who doesn't love dumplings? Serve as a delicious entree or add to a soothing Asian soup packed with chilli and veg - yum!
Theres something about spiced baked beans which screams comfort food. Whether you have them on toast with smashed avo, add them to your lunch bowl, or wrap them up in a burrito, they pack a powerful nutritional punch and are a great source of plant based protein + fibre... plus they're usually a win with the kiddies (sans the chilli of course).
It's easy, healthy, and it looks impressive - a win / win situation. Plus it's a great way to use up leftover cooked rice if you have it in the fridge. Serve with a crunchy side salad and you're all set!
Yeahhhh baby. Warms your soul, and fills the house with aromatic spices. This dish is also jam packed with flavour and bursting with all the good stuff - protein, fibre, leafy green vegetables, lemon, turmeric... the list goes on.
Comforting like a warm hug, this soup ticks all the winter boxes - it's slightly spicy, slightly sweet, and is made from some key nutrients + antioxidants which our bodies crave during the colder months.
A labour of love... lasagne needs time and patience, so it would be preferable to make this recipe on a lazy Sunday afternoon with a glass of red wine in hand.
RECIPE NOTE: This recipe is gluten and dairy free but if you can tolerate gluten/dairy then you can swap the relevant ingredients for flour/non GF pasta/milk etc.
This curried cauliflower soup ticks all of those ‘comfort food’ boxes – it is hearty, thick, creamy, smells divine and the spices give us that extra kick of heat that our bodies so desperately want in the winter months.
Albeit looking pretty bland and boring, Cauliflower actually contains amazing phytonutrients which help to activate our detox enzymes! They are also an excellent source of Vitamin C and manganese, as well as containing Vitamin K which acts as an anti-inflammatory.
The toasted chickpeas on top not only add crunch, but also add a great vegetarian protein source to the dish.
Its the simplest of ingredients, that can make a dish absolutely wonderful.
Perfect to fit into your lunch box, have as a share table addition, or simply enjoy all to yourself ! These patties are seasoned with Asian flavours of coriander & sesame oil - accompanied with some home made sauerkraut and a fresh salad - who could ask for anything better!
