What you'll need:

Half head of Cauliflower

1/2 Cup Snowpeas

3 TBSP Curry Powder

1 TSP Ground Cumin

1 TSP Tumeric

1 TSP Garlic

2 TSP Ginger

1 TSP Chilli or Chilli flakes (optional)

2 TBSP Sweet Chilli Sauce

2-3 TBSP Nuttelex (or any Vegan butter)

400ml Coconut Milk

Beach Harvest Curry Coconut Chips (snack size bag)

2 Cups Jasmine Rice

What to do:

Set Oven to 200 degrees and line a pan with baking paper.

Melt 2 Tablespoons of Nuttelex in a pan and add 1 Tablespoon of Curry Powder - break florets off the Cauliflower Head and coat in the mixture. Place on to your pan and roast in the oven for 20 minutes.

Using the same pan, add a little more Nuttelex if needed and then add your Garlic, Ginger, Chilli & Sweet Chilli Sauce. Fry until fragrant and then add 2 Tablespoons of Curry Powder before pouring in all of the coconut milk.

Add the Cumin and Tumeric and lower the heat to a gentle simmer.

Cook your Rice and when it's nearly done, add half the bag of Coconut Chips to the curry and mix well.

Once the rice is ready to be served, add the Cauliflower to the curry sauce and plate up.

Use more Curry Coconut Chips to garnish and enjoy!

Homemade Muesli - Vegan, Paleo, No Sugar June 07 2016, 0 Comments

 

I'm honoured and thrilled to have this recipe from the lovely Naomi from Raw Gems*.  Here is her recipe for Homemade Muesli.  Thanks Naomi! xo

~~~~~~

Muesli is very easy to make!  You can add whatever you like to suit your own tastebuds. Here’s what I used in mine.  All the ingredients that I use are organic.

Ingredients:

4 cups of oats

1 cup bran

1 cup Puffed rice 

1 cup Puffed buckwheat 

1 cup shredded coconut 

1 cup coconut chips (I prefer Maple)

1 cup Sultanas

½ cup Sun flower seeds 

½ cup Pepitas seeds

½ cup Goji berries

½ cup Cranberries

½ cup Slithered Almond 

½ cup Currants 

Method:

Add all ingredients in a large bowl or container, layer by layer. Once all ingredients are in the container, stir with a wooden spoon until the mixture is even throughout.  Enjoy with your favourite milk - my favourite is activated almond milk.

Save remaining muesli in an air-tight container.  Enjoy!

Homemade Fudge with Coconut Sprinkles. Vegan, Raw, and Paleo friendly! July 13 2015, 0 Comments

I have the BEST recipe for homemade fudge - it's Paleo and Vegan, healthy and delicious.

This is perfect to make for the unannounced guest ("Hey, can we pop in for a quick cuppa?") or last minute 'bring a plate to share' function.

Here it is:

BLITZ these items (I use my blender):

1/2 cup coconut oil

1/2 cup cacao powder (or cocoa powder)

1/2 cup maple syrup

1 cup walnuts

1 tbsp macadamia oil

2 pinches salt

 

When finished, stir through 50 grams of our COCONUT SPRINKLES.  I prefer to use either Maple, Himalayan Salt, or Plain.  But, if you prefer to add a bit of extra spice, use the Sweet Chilli.  

Spread mix into a glass baking dish (I usually line mine with cling wrap or baking paper).  Sprinkle COCONUT SPRINKLES on top.  

Freeze 1 hour.

Get ready for the compliments - this is a super easy and quick recipe to make and is a guaranteed crowd pleaser!
