Christmas Dandy Latte

Christmas Dandy Latte

Dandelion (or just Dandy, if you’re hipster), makes an awesome coffee substitute. It’s roasted so you get that earthy, rich aroma that you get from your usual morning brew, but with the benefit of zero caffeine. I’m quite sure around xmas time I get enough caffeine through chocolate. It’s also a bit hard-hitting on your adrenals, so I like to moderate my intake at times of higher stress. Dandy is the perfect option. It’s great for detoxification of your liver – which is also helpful at Christmas if you’re prone to a drink or six – and also helps promote healthy digestion.

Light the fire and cuddle up with a cup of this and a daggy film. Santa will soon be here!

Pear + Chocolate Pudding

I used to love bread and butter pudding. It’s kind of a strange marriage – I don’t know of another dessert that uses bread as the main ingredient – but it just works. The versions i’m used to are loaded with no-so-great ingredients and gluten, which gives me brain fog and plenty of lovely bloating to contend with. This lighter version skips the copious amounts of butter, sugar and white bread. I also managed to squeeze extra protein in there. Tummy says YES!

Roast Vegetable Tartlet with Herbed Chickpea Crust from The Fit Foodie. Gluten Free. Chickpea (besan) flour.

Roast Vegetable Tartlet with Herbed Chickpea Crust

I love this recipe. It was inspired by a delicious deep-dish vegetable pie I had in Adelaide last year at vegan restaurant Pollen 185. The chef there told me how she had played around with the crust recipe for weeks before perfecting it, and then very generously passed that onto me. I’ve tinkered a little with it myself, but the deliciously crumbly texture remains the same. Fill it with whatever you want – I’ve gone for nutrient dense pumpkin and beets, but you can literally throw anything in there. Turn it into a quiche by pouring in whisked eggs into the crust.

Chickpea flour is made from either raw or roasted chickpeas, milled finely. It contains a higher proportion of protein than many others. It’s also
gluten free, making it a great flour alternative for anyone who suffers from gluten intolerance. It’s also mighty tasty. Grab some at your local health food store and let’s get baking!

Peanut Butter Cookie Dough Blondies

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Blondies

Sticky, chewy blondies with no flour, no oil, no white sugar. Crammed with heart-healthy chickpeas, these will fool even your healthiest of friends. With a low GI value of 28 – 32, chickpeas carbohydrates are broken down and digested slowly. This is helpful for weight loss (or maintenance) as it works to control appetite. Enjoy one with a cup of tea, or warm it up and add a dollop of greek yoghurt for dessert.
