Mushroom stew

Just had another warming bowl of mushroom stew for dinner! Can you tell I like mushrooms? ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ„

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 ๐Ÿ˜‹… oh and a nice doorstop of bread ๐Ÿ˜‚

Chunky broccoli hummus with mushrooms, charred beetroot and pickled carrot

Had the pleasure of having a bottomless brunch at @elnecotfor for my sister-in-lawโ€™s birthday yesterday and…

Gotta say the Bloody Maryโ€™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.๐Ÿคค

Service was amazing as well! Defo check it out if you’re in Manchester!

Porridge (part deux)

Hmmm you guessed it…morrrre porridge! ๐Ÿคค

Mixing it up with some fresh raspberries and cherries topped with almonds and maple syrup. I normally use frozen berries but as Iโ€™m currently at my parents Iโ€™m treating myself to the good stuff!

For a super easy way to get seeds into your diet, add them in your porridge!

Iโ€™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-3โ€™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 ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป These seeds also thicken up your porridge, which I prefer but if you donโ€™t, add a bit of extra water/milk ๐Ÿ˜

Tip for building your porridge: layer up your topping through the porridge so you donโ€™t just end up with a bunch of plain porridge at the end! 

Bell peppers – not many people know this!

Interesting! ๐Ÿ˜

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 ๐Ÿ˜‰
