Whole Jacket Potatoes

* Wash whole potatoes, (white or sweet) generally one per person.Jacket Potatoes
* Place directly on the racks in a preheated oven, on 180C, for 1 hour.
* Carefully, using an oven mitt or a doubled over tea towel, remove the potatoes from the oven.
* Carefully cut a deep cross into the potato and add your toppings of choice.

For a faster meal/snack, dice the potatoes into bite sized pieces.

Two easy, fast toppings.563

  1. Finely diced red capsicum and celery
    Grated carrot, beetroot and cheese
    Sour cream
  2. Coleslaw
    300 g finely sliced red and green cabbage
    200 g coarsely grated organic carrot
    2 green apples coarsely gratedcoleslaw
    2 sticks of celery finely chopped
    1/2 red onion finely diced (pouring hot water over the onion and allowing it to sit for 2 minutes before combining will lessen the intensity of the flavour)

Combine all ingredients.
Add sour cream to the potato if desired.

 

 

Di Fretta simply translates to ‘in a hurry’sauce 3

This has been a staple fast food in our house for years.

The sauce, when blended, is perfect for freezing so feel free to make a double batch and pop some away for a handy back up meal.

Ingredients

2 Tins Organic Tomatoes (c)
1 Tin Sirena Tunsauce 2
1 Large Onion Chopped (s)
8 Garlic cloves (s)
4 Carrots chopped (c)
4 Celery Stick, including the leaves, chopped (c)
5 Tbsp extra virgin cold pressed Olive Oil
Freshly grated Parmesan or goat/sheep milk Feta

 

Method

sauce 1Place all sauce ingredients in a medium sized saucepan and simmer over a low heat for 20 minutes.

Once the sauce is done removed from the heat and stir through the garlic.

 

 

If having with pasta use good quality gluten free pasta (I use Eco Mung Bean Fettuccine)20160513_174123
Bring a large saucepan of water to the boil, add the pasta and cook for the required time (Eco pasta mentioned is 6-8 minutes)
Strain pasta, divide between bowls and pour on your sauce, either chunky or blended
Season with good quality pink salt and pepper.
Some freshly grated Parmesan or goat/sheep milk feta are the perfect toppings
That’s it!

 

sauce 4

Another suggestion is to serve it with organic brown rice.
Once your sauce is on the stove, simply bring a pot of water to the boil, tip in 1/2 cup of rice per person serving, simmer for 20 minutes and then strain.
Divide into bowls and top with the sauce and some feta … voila! Dinner in 1/2 an hour.

  • My tip with cooking brown rice is not to use the absorption method, rather to tip the rice into sufficient water so that you have to strain it at the end. This leaving you with rice that still has just a little bite to it rather than icky mush that is the result of the absorption method of cooking.

  1. … a mixture of dried fruit, nuts, and other food eaten as a snack by hikers.

This was a favourite snack for long car trips when I was kid. Now in our house, it is a favourite anytime snack!

Preparation

  • Nuts and seeds contain anti-nutrients, soaking them helps to generate more healthful enzymatic activity.
  • Soak in fresh water for 24 hours
  • Soaked nuts and seeds tend to be a bit chewy, but dehydrating them will restore their crunch texture – be sure to use a dehydrator temperature not exceeding 50 deg. C.
  • In selecting dried fruit ensure it is organic and dried naturally by the sun. Look for packages that say “no sulfites,” as this is a toxic preservative that maintains colour. Dried fruit shouldn’t look like the original, while it might not look as appealing, brown and shrivelled is at times, the healthier option.

Make a mix of all or any of the following for a snack containing a powerhouse of enzymes, minerals, and essential fatty acids…

Nuts and Seeds
Almonds
Brazils
Cashews
Pistachio
Walnuts
Hazel
Macadamia
Pecans
Pepitas
Sunflower

Organic Dried Fruit and Extras
Sultanas
Raisens
Cranberries
Goji Berries
Coconut Flakes
Cacao Nibs
Dates

I commonly put this together as an addition to my children’s lunch boxes, otherwise it makes a great breakfast or a quick snack.

Smoothie bowls have certainly become a ‘thing’ in cafes. I have been making my own version as a meal, usually a quick lunch, or a snack. Unlike the cafe version which actually has a smoothie base which requires blending, I make mine with everything except the liquid, so no blender required! Oh, and mine doesn’t look as pretty but it think it tastes better! Here is what it looks like ….

Ingredients

Natural Yoghurt or Coconut Yoghurt/Kafir – 3-4 Desert Spoons

Chia Seeds

Almonds
Dates
Banana – sliced
Maple Syrup

Sprinkle toppings of choice on top – using above as inspiration
Slice a banana on top (or fruit of choice, organic berries would be nice)
Drizzle with maple syrup
