Course Breakfast

Keyword breakfast, easy, fluffy, gluten free, panakes, recipes, veganism, vegetarian, vegetarianism
Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 20 minutes
Total Time 35 minutes

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup brown rice flour
  • 1/2 cup millet flour
  • 1/2 cup oat flour (make sure it's labelled as gluten free)
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • salt to taste
  • 1 1/2 cup almond milk mixed with 1 tsp balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tbsp flax meal mixed with 9 tbsp water
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract

Instructions

  1. In a large bowl, mix the flours with the baking powder and soda and salt using a whisk.
  2. In another bowl mix the almond milk with the flax meal mixture and vanilla.

  3. Add the wet mixture to the dry one, and mix well. Don't worry about over mixing, because gluten-free flours do not toughen up the way wheat does when mixed.
  4. Heat a griddle and spray with a little oil. Pour about 1/4 cup of batter on the griddle and let the pancake cook until bubbles appear around the sides and centre, then flip and cook until the underside turns golden.
  5. Serve hot.

Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 30 minutes
Total Time 35 minutes
Servings 4
Calories 345 kcal

Ingredients

  • 6 small plums halved and stoned
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup plus extra to serve
  • 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 orange zested and juiced
  • 100 g porridge oats
  • 50 g oat bran
  • 50 g quinoa or more porridge oats
  • 1 ltr unsweetened almond milk, mixed with 400ml water
  • 2 tbsp almonds roughly chopped

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to gas 4, 180°C, fan 160°C. Put the plums on a large baking tray, drizzle with the maple syrup, then sprinkle with the cinnamon. Toss to coat, then bake for 25 mins. Pour over the orange juice and bake for a further 5 mins until the plums are soft.

Vegan Singapore Noodles

 

 

Vegan Singapore Noodles

Singapore Noodles simplified to just 10 ingredients and 30 minutes! Add tofu for extra protein and texture. The perfect satisfying, plant-based meal!

Course Main Course
Keyword asian, cuisine, dinner, easy, flavours, healthy, noodles, quick, simple, singapore, stir fry, vegan, veganism, vegetables, vegetarian
Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 20 minutes
Total Time 30 minutes
Servings 2
Calories 342 kcal

Ingredients

Sauce

  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 2 tbsp tamari or soy sauce
  • 1-2 tbsp coconut sugar to taste
  • 1 large lime juiced

Noodles

  • 6 ounces thin rice noodles
  • 2 tbsp roasted sesame oil divided
  • 1/4 white or yellow onion thinly sliced
  • 3/4 red bell pepper thinly sliced
  • 12 whole snow peas
  • 1 tbsp tamari or soy sauce
  • 4 tsp curry powder

For Serving (Optional)

  • 8 ounces extra firm tofu pressed dry and cubed
  • sriracha or garlic chilli sauce
  • 2 stalks green onion thinly sliced

Instructions

  1. Add rice noodles to a large bowl and cover completely with boiling water. Let cook for 5-10 minutes (or according to package instructions), stirring occasionally to prevent sticking. Drain and set aside.
  2. In the meantime, make the sauce by adding minced garlic, tamari or soy sauce, coconut sugar, and lime juice to a small mixing bowl. Whisk to combine. Then taste and adjust seasonings as needed. You’re going for a savory-tart sauce with a bit of sweetness (adjust to taste). Set aside.
  3. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Once hot, add half of the toasted sesame oil (1 Tbsp as original recipe is written // adjust if altering batch size), onion and red bell pepper. Sauté for 3-4 minutes, stirring frequently, or until onion is soft and translucent.
  4. Add snow peas, 1 Tbsp tamari or soy sauce, and 2 tsp curry powder, and stir (amounts as original recipe is written // adjust if altering batch size). Sauté for 2-3 minutes, then remove from pan and set aside.
  5. To the still-hot skillet, add remaining sesame oil (1 Tbsp as original recipe is written // adjust if altering batch size), cooked rice noodles, sauce, and remaining 2 tsp curry powder (amount as original recipe is written // adjust if altering batch size). Sauté for 1 minute, tossing frequently with tongs to disperse sauce and curry powder.
  6. Add back in the vegetables and toss to coat. Cook for 1-2 minutes more, then remove from heat.
  7. Serve with desired toppings. This dish benefits greatly from a little hot sauce, such as Sriracha!
  8. Best when fresh, though leftovers keep for 2-3 days covered in the refrigerator. Reheat in the microwave or in a saucepan over medium heat.

  9. See notes if adding tofu!

Recipe Notes

*To add tofu, double the amount of sauce. Then pour half into a separate mixing bowl. Add 1 extra Tablespoon coconut sugar and whisk thoroughly to combine. Add pressed, cubed tofu to a parchment-lined baking sheet and bake in a 400 degree F (204 C) oven for 30-32 minutes, or until golden brown and crispy. Before cooking the vegetables, add the tofu to a lightly greased skillet over medium-high heat and add sauce. Sauté for 3-4 minutes, stirring frequently, until sauce has absorbed and the tofu is very hot and somewhat glazed. Remove from pan and set aside, then continue with recipe as instructed. Add tofu back in with vegetables in step 7.

Lightly Spiced Butternut Squash Soup

 

Lightly Spiced Butternut Squash Soup

With the arrival of Autumn, all the foodies are raving about butternut squash, blackberries and of course pumpkins. Likewise, I'm about to gush about how great butternut squash is. Great source of fibre, low in fat and high in taste quality! Anyways, I'm blessing you guys with this pretty awesome recipe, invented by the one and only Gordon Ramsay. Enjoy!

Course Main Course, Side Dish
Keyword autumn, butternut, cooking, easy, fall, flavour, recipe, recipes, seasonal, simple, soup, squash, tasty
Servings 6
Calories 66 kcal

Ingredients

  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • few knobs butter
  • 2 onions peeled, chopped
  • 2 bay leaves
  • Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 liter hot chicken stock
  • 1 tsp mild curry powder
  • 1 large butternut squash peeled and cut into small pieces
  • 2 apples cored and sliced with skin on
  • 1 small handful coriander leaves chopped
  • 4 rashers pancetta (up to 6), halved

Instructions

  1. Heat a heavy-based pan with the olive oil and butter, then add the onions, bay leaves and a generous pinch of salt and pepper. Stir well, then cover the pan with a lid and cook over a low heat for 5-7 minutes until the onions begin to soften.
  2. Meanwhile, bring the stock to a simmer in another saucepan. Add the curry powder to the onions and stir for another minute. Tip in the squash and add a little more oil to prevent the squash from scorching too quickly. When you add the butternut squash, add the apples at the same time with a pinch of castor sugar to bring out the fragrance and extra flavours hidden in the soup. (It will also give the finished soup a velvety texture.) Cook for about 10-12 minutes over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until the squash is tender and lightly caramelised.

  3. Pour in just enough hot stock to cover the vegetables and gently simmer for another 5-10 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile, lay the pancetta in a single layer in a hot nonstick frying pan. Fry over medium heat until golden-brown and crisp. Turn over to cook the other side. Drain on kitchen paper and allow to cool slightly.
  5. Fish out and discard the bay leaves. In batches, puree the soup in a food processor or liquidiser until smooth. Return the soup to the pan to reheat. Taste and adjust the seasoning. Ladle the soup into warm bowls and garnish with some chopped coriander and a slice of crispy pancetta on top.
  6. Enjoy!
