Just had another warming bowl of mushroom stew for dinner! Can you tell I like mushrooms? 😂🍄
I used a recipe from @wholygoodness book Vegan Goodness. It has simple ingredients and most of the bits you just have in the cupboard. Made some creamy mash and finished it by adding a bit of colour with a kale and beetroot salad 😋… oh and a nice doorstop of bread 😂
Chunky broccoli hummus with mushrooms, charred beetroot and pickled carrot
Had the pleasure of having a bottomless brunch at @elnecotfor for my sister-in-law’s birthday yesterday and…
Gotta say the Bloody Mary’s were unrealllll!
Food wise I actually had quite a few options to choose from – nice to have a choice!
I went for the chunky broccoli hummus with mushrooms, charred beetroot and pickled carrot.🤤
Service was amazing as well! Defo check it out if you’re in Manchester!
Porridge (part deux)
Hmmm you guessed it…morrrre porridge! 🤤
Mixing it up with some fresh raspberries and cherries topped with almonds and maple syrup. I normally use frozen berries but as I’m currently at my parents I’m treating myself to the good stuff!
For a super easy way to get seeds into your diet, add them in your porridge!
I’ve added a tablespoon of ground flax seed (try and use ground or they will pass straight through and not be absorbed!) and a tablespoon of chia seeds. They are both great for anti-inflammatory omega-3’s (something a bit harder to find on a plant based diet!) and fibre, which can help lower your cholesterol and prevent against type 2 diabetes 👍🏻 These seeds also thicken up your porridge, which I prefer but if you don’t, add a bit of extra water/milk 😁
Tip for building your porridge: layer up your topping through the porridge so you don’t just end up with a bunch of plain porridge at the end!
Bell peppers – not many people know this!
Peppers are packed full of vitamin C, even more so than an orange! They are also a great source of vitamin A, B6 and folate.
When you cook a pepper it can denature (breakdown) some of the vitamins (C and B) but makes vitamin A more available so try and keep a mix of raw and cooked in your dishes 😉
