Dehydrated buckwheat crunchies, raisins, walnuts, raw coconut flakes, linseed, sunflower seeds and pumpkin seeds. Serve with fresh fruit and a splash of almond milk.
With the temperature dropping as soon as the sun goes down, it's time to put on a pot of warming 'beefy' stew.
Potatoes, carrots, parsnips, mushrooms, peas and a thick hearty gravy. Served with some chard from the garden.
Tomato sauce - cherry tomatoes, tins of chopped tomatoes, acv, tomato puree, touch of brown sugar, salt and pepper.
If you're feeling like you're getting a cold, sauté onion, garlic and ginger in water, then add red lentils and vegetable stock and simmer for a while. Add to this cauliflower, cumin, ground coriander, turmeric, chilli, nooch, salt and pepper and a slug of tamari. When it's cooked down blend with a stick blender and add chopped kale. Finish with a squeeze of lemon juice. Very comforting for lunch with a chunk of homemade bread if you're extra hungry, it is very filling on its own.
And today's smoothie - banana, pineapple, raisins, lettuce, wheatgrass powder, baobab powder, milled flaxseed, hemp seeds, chia seeds and water. Yummy.
Red Thai Tofu with Bhutanese Pineapple Rice (supposed to be red rice but I didn't have any so used black) and Green Beans with Thai Basil (used kale instead of beans). Recipes from Appetite for Reduction by Isa Chandra Moskowitz. Delicious!
Dug around the fridge to see what needed eating - sweet potatoes, potatoes from the garden, butternut squash, leeks, onions, courgettes, runner beans, kale and chard - then added tin of white beans and some cooked quinoa, tin of tomatoes and vegetable stock, bit of miso, seasoning and nooch. As I was about to serve it I added some freshly roasted beetroot (from the garden) and the greens from the beets, sprinkled some more nooch over the top and added a splurge of cashew cream. Had it with crusty bread or rice cakes. Yum
Spaghetti Alfredo with roasted vegetables from PlantPure Nation Cookbook - one of my very favourite recipe books. Buy it and have a look.
Onion, leeks, garlic (lots), grated fresh ginger, carrots, butter beans, turmeric, cabbage, fennel, kale, spinach and salt and pepper with vegetable stock. Warming and delicious. Serve with crusty home baked bread.
Just purchased a Foodsaver Vacuum Sealer from Lakeland, hopefully it will free up space to freeze veggies for the winter.
