Bangin Beetroot Falafel

  Beetroots are one of my favourite vegetables to eat this time of year. Their earthy and sweet flavour makes them a perfect choice for winter meals. Beets are also remarkably versatile, you can serve them simply roasted with cumin and black pepper, grated raw and added to a slaw with a lemony dressing or blended into a thick chickpea hummus. For this recipe, I’ve created a bit of a beetroot love triangle combining all 3 of my favourite cooking techniques into one delicious magenta falafel. Raw beets are blended with chickpeas, fresh coriander and cumin, formed into patties, coated in sesame seeds and baked until crispy. Wrapped up in a warm flatbread and drizzled with a turmeric, tahini and yoghurt sauce. The earthy spicy flavours of the sauce taste amazing with the falafel and the colours look incredible together as well. These are great to make when you have friends coming round for dinner.

Its here! My FREE plant powered meal plan. Switching to a plant-based diet has really helped me feel amazing in my body. I originally started to eat vegetarian because it was cheaper but as I got more and more into this way of eating I realised it was having a profound effect on my health. I’ve always had a problematic digestive system. Nothing really helped it until I eliminated gluten and started eating a whole food plant-based diet. Now I’m not saying everyone has to become a gluten vegan, I just think everyone can benefit from adding more wholesome fruits, veggies, beans, nuts and seeds to their diet. You never know how it might help you until you give it a go. I’ve created this 7-day meal plan to show you guys how easy and delicious eating a plant-based diet can be.  Not vegan? You don’t have to be. I’ve designed it so anyone can follow the plan, whether your a vegan looking for some exciting recipes or a newbie who just wants to cut down …

Lemon Grass & Coconut Soup

This Fresh and light coconut broth is the perfect meal to kick-start your healthy eating in 2018. Its the love child of Coco-nutty tom kha soup & fragrant hai green curry. Lemongrass, ginger, Kaffir lime leaf & fresh herbs are blended with coconut milk & veggie stock to create a delicious broth which is simmered gently then ladled over brown rice noodles, broccolini and tofu. I love topping this soup off with fresh cucumber and bean sprouts for extra crunch. Snow peas, boy choy and capsicum also work amazingly. If you want an extra green kick you can blend a handful of spinach into the broth. This soup is great if you want to calm and soothe your tummy after an indulgent silly season. Lemongrass, ginger & mint are digestion superstars! They’re full of compounds that can help ease common digestive symptoms like bloating, nausea & cramps. You can also use the leftover herbs to brew a delicious tummy tea and sip throughout the day. Lemongrass & Coconut soup Serves – 2 hungry people   …
