It’s Friday!…

It’s Friday again! This can only mean one thing: Friday Food Post!

Continuing my quest to live & eat a healthier lifestyle, here are a few of my favourite recipes discovered this past week that I would recommend checking out!

On my search for yummy food inspiration, I came across this recipe by ‘The Simple Veganista‘, and HAD to try it!

“zucchini-pasta-creamy-avocado-cucumber” – Full recipe here: http://thesimpleveganista.blogspot.co.uk/2013/04/zucchini-pasta-creamy-avocado-cucumber.html

Again, I didn’t have all of the ingredients, so I improvised a little.

For the pasta, I was trying out the different cutting tools on the blender, so the courgette was more grated than I anticipated, but hey, now I know what each of the blades can do!

For the dressing, I blended:

2 avocados

1 handful of walnuts

3-4 sml spring onions

1/2 cucumber

1/2 chopped chilli

juice from 1/2 lime

1 clove of crushed garlic

1tbs cumin (added by accident before realising it wasn’t the bag of tumeric I’d grabbed, but still…)

1tbs tumeric!

salt & pepper to taste

Hemp seeds & coriander to garnish

On the side, I added a few chopped tomatoes and some roasted butternut squash I’d cooked earlier, sprinkled with tumeric- yum!

Using up the rest of my roasted squash, I made a spicy coconut soup!

1 can chickpeas

1 half roasted butternut (with tumeric)

1 lrg orange

1/2 fresh chilli

1-2 cloves minced garlic

tbs hemp seeds (these are my new favourite! Great thrown in to salads also!)

Possibly threw in some mixed seeds but I can’t remember!

Salt & pepper to taste

Coriander to garnish


If you saw my previous post, you’ll know I was raving about Emily’s Coconut Goji Brownies recipe from ‘This Rawsome Vegan Life‘ – and so basically I made another batch!

This time I didn’t have coconut flakes/pieces, so added some coconut oil instead, and more dates/raisins to help bind it all together!

This ‘Raw Coconut Oil‘ I found much better than the cheaper version in the white tub by KTC- as soon as you open it, the smell is amazing! It’s really creamy in comparison too, so I’d definitely recommend it 🙂 I believe it’s by the same brand as ‘Biona’ which I haven’t tried, but also has good feedback.

Visit HERE for Emily’s awesome recipe!

Today, I was kindly given some onions to grow- wish me luck! I killed my strawberries last year! 😉 ….

Have a fab weekend everyone!
