This is a quick curry basmati/ Freekah dish that can be cooked in a rice cooker, too easy!!
Place all the following ingredients into the rice cooker:
1/2 cup cracker freekah
1/2 cup brown basmati
2 carrots cubed…
1/2 cup sultanas
1/2 chopped capsicum
2 teaspoons of curry
1 teaspoon of salt
1/2 cup of coconut milk
Approx 2 1/4 cups of water
When most of the water has been absorbed add 1/2 cup of peas and cook until all liquid is gone.
This is a great Sunday night dish or perhaps perfect for the student going off to uni??
Would be great with some chilli.
Lindy made this yummy quinoa dish. Healthy, easy and fast!
Gluten free and super clean and yum!!! Enjoy
Have to say I am pretty excited, I made my first ever cheese. My dad used to make his own cheese and yoghurt when I was younger and I always loved the strong soft cheese taste that came from this fermentation process.
This recipe is so simple that it will become a regular at our house. It basically tastes and looks like ricotta cheese but with a stronger taste. All you need is some kefir milk and a straining tool to separate the whey and curds.
That is all there is to it. By the next day you have a great tasting soft cheese and some whey. basically 1 cup of Kefir milk makes about 1/2 cup of cheese.
I am going to use my whey to ferment some more vegetables.
This is a great site to find out more about kefir:
Lindy shared a healthy snack, dessert/ breakfast option – CADA (coconut, almonds, dates, apple). It is easy to replace the apple with pear and add your own unique combinations of berries/seeds or nuts. The photo below has goji berries and chia seeds added to the mix. Perfect to try with some coconut yoghurt and fruit for breakfast.
super easy to make – Blend and there you have your own CADA. Perfect to eat with yoghurt and fresh fruit.
I think this will be great to experiment with adding seeds, dried fruit, nuts etc.
Quinoa breakfast porridge
1. Rinse and place the quinoa seeds in a pot with the milk.
2. Boil then simmer for 10-15 mins with lid on till tender
3. Add more milk if required let sit so 5 mins for all liquid to be absorbed.
4. Either use it cold or warm. Add yogurt and extras and stir through
I have been reading so much about the benefits of fermented/cultured foods that I am going to make it a regular in our household. Fermented carrots looked like an easy starting recipe as I had everything without having to go to the shops.
Enough carrots to fill your jar
Enough salt brine to fill a jar (1tbs good quality salt per cup water)
2 peeled cloves of garlic (optional)
a few sprigs of fresh dill
1. Cut the carrots to your liking (slices, shredded or in sticks)
2. Make the salt brine and pour over the carrots
3. Add the garlic (2 cloves gives a distinct garlic taste so if you don’t like garlic reduce or not use) and dill
4. Cover jar and leave on kitchen bench for 5-7 days.
These tasted great… Still crunchy. I am going to keep exploring flavours, might even give using kefir whey as a starter next time instead of a salt brine. I have also attached a great site if you want some tips for cultured food.
