If you haven’t tried roasted chickpeas, then you seriously need to get on this train! A super yummy and crunchy snack to beat those 3pm cravings.
Even if you’re at the top of your smoothie bowl game, you probably haven’t tried cauliflower in your creations. When raw and frozen, it’s actually quite tasteless (and full of vitamins that can be lost in cooking). Use it to thicken your next smoothie and sub out some of the usual frozen banana for a lower sugar option.
By the time Christmas rolls around in Australia it is 35 degrees and the traditional dishes in Europe are out of the question. Enter Christmas in July where you can enjoy all of the delicious Christmas foods without suffering heat exhaustion. Trifle is always a Christmas favourite. Some of the weird biscuit bases my mum used were pretty questionable, so I’ve skipped those, and the booze, to create a delicious dairy-free alternative that everyone can enjoy (including the kids).
If your patient enough to soak these oats in milk the night before, that 5 minutes of prep makes this recipe incredibly creamy. As a sufferer of anaemia, I love to add molasses as a sweetener because it provides a dose of iron. Aside from that, it’s reminiscent of gingerbread cookies, which needs no further explanation! So, good.
How I haven’t tried making one of these before is beyond me. Think the lusciousness of velvety hot chocolate, in a thick nourishing porridge that will get you warmed up even on the coldest of mornings.
When berries are out of season in winter, frozen ones are a much more economical way to get your fix. Heat and mash them into these delicious warm bowls of juiciness on a chilly morning.
Winter puddings aren’t complete without an apple pie of some sort. My mother-in-law would pick blackberries in the countryside, and put them in her apple pies. While I don’t have a blackberry bush around the corner, the sharpness of rhubarb compliments the sweet apples perfectly. Significantly less pastry than most pies, but deliciously satisfying all the same.
Chewy on the top, soft in the middle, with a layer of the delicious sauce waiting for you at the bottom makes – few puddings can top this one! Serve with a drizzle of homemade custard for extra indulgence on a cold night.
Everyone loves a good cookies, and these are no exception. Plus with no baking and only 4 ingredients, they are a breeze to put together. The only hard part is stopping yourself at one.
Who doesn’t love a crumble?! This one is perfect when sweet peaches are in season, and are perfectly married with a crunch, crumbly topping. YAHOO! Truly is comfort food at its finest.
