Taco Flavoured Popcorn

Taco Flavoured Popcorn

Brenda Janschek | January 17, 2019


With my husband chaperoning Mr. 14 at his first 4-day golf tournament in the Hunter Valley, NSW, my daughter and I had a simpler (and less noisy!) week to ourselves. This translated to uncomplicated dinners, noticeably less housework and nightly chick flick sessions cuddled up on the lounge. And what goes perfectly with movies? Popcorn! But not just any old popcorn. I’m talkin’ serious stuff now. And seriously, Taco Popcorn is our new favourite snack!

Five minutes is all it takes to whip up this oh-so-tasty taco flavoured popcorn recipe which makes the perfect healthy snack. It’s easy, delicious, cheap and a much better option than the store-bought varieties which are full of preservatives and artificial colours. This recipe is versatile enough to be enjoyed with drinks by the pool or popped in school lunchboxes, you’ll love how easy this tasty popcorn it is to make!

This taco seasoning mix isn’t just great for popcorn, make your own taco seasoning & use it for bean or guacamole dips, veggie burgers, lentil nachos and more!

Making popcorn is made easy with my popcorn machine, but you can certainly make it the old fashioned way in a saucepan as I explain in the recipe below.



½ cup popcorn kernels
1/4 -½ teaspoon chilli powder (optional)
1 teaspoon paprika
1 teaspoon cumin
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp onion powder
½ tsp salt
Cracked black pepper
2 tablespoons butter, melted



1. In a small bowl mix together the chilli powder, paprika, cumin, garlic powder, onion powder, salt and cracked black pepper.

2. I pop my popcorn in the popcorn maker I mention above. To cook in a pan, over medium heat up some olive oil or coconut oil in a medium saucepan and once the saucepan is hot, add in the popcorn kernels, pop the lid on and shake the pan to evenly disperse the kernels.

3. Shake the pan intermittently to prevent kernels sticking and burning until all the kernels have popped

4. Pour popcorn into a large bowl and add half the taco seasoning, taste test, and add more to suit your tastebuds then pour over the melted butter and stir very well.

Refreshing Summer Detox Ice-Blocks

Refreshing Summer Detox Ice-Blocks

Georgia Harding | January 13, 2019


The nutrient dense veggies are well hidden behind the sweetness of the fruit. I personally don’t add in the extra sweetener, but taste the mixture prior to freezing and decide if you think you need to add it.


Health benefits

Beetroot is an anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, detoxifying and extremely nutrient-rich vegetable. Research suggests it improves stamina and sports performance (this fact alone appeals to my sport loving kids). Zucchini (also known as courgette), is extremely low in calories and loaded with fibre. It is also a great source of potassium.

Take a look at the variations (below the main recipe) for suggestions to alter the recipe to suit many dietary requirements.



1 small raw beetroot, peeled & quartered
2 cups strawberries or raspberries, washed & hulled
1 large banana, peeled
½ small zucchini, quartered
1 cup coconut water
¼ cup sweetener (honey, rice malt or maple syrup), optional



1. In a high powered blender, blend all of the ingredients until smooth.

2. Divide between ice block moulds and freeze until set firm.


Replace the coconut water with a nut milk.

Make it creamy
Replace the coconut water with coconut cream, full-fat natural yoghurt or coconut yoghurt.

No banana
Replace the banana with mango.

Add Protein
I often add a scoop of 180 Nutrition Superfood Protein powder (coconut flavour). They have both a whey protein and vegan (dairy-free) options.



This recipe also makes a delicious smoothie (just add a cup of ice prior to blending it).

Gluten Free Mexican Pork and Black Bean Pie

Gluten Free Mexican Pork and Black Bean Pie

Alexx Stuart | January 7, 2019


I’ve made this recipe three times now because I’m a big fan of steering you towards a winner and being absolutely sure it’s great. If pork isn’t your speed you can switch out the pork mince for chicken or beef or triple the black beans for a vegetarian version. Don’t have the right veg on hand? You can leave out the greens or switch with zucchini. Don’t be too rigid and just use what you have as long as the general gist is there. The top, obviously, though does need those proportions and textures to be right.

I hope it brings you some delicious mid-week comfort. This recipe is perfect for a family of 6, or our little family of 3, with a lunch for me and two lunchbox hot-pot reheats for the little man.

Prep time: 30 minutes. Cook time: 30 minutes. Recipe serves: 6 people.



Mexican Pork & Black Bean Pie Filling

2 cups roughly chopped purple onion
¼ cup extra virgin olive oil or ghee
½ tsp dried oregano
2 tsp paprika
1 tsp dried or finely chopped fresh rosemary
1 clove garlic
500 g minced pork
1 cup cooked black beans either soak 2/3 cup black beans in water and a tbsp lemon juice for 12 hours and simmer for 1.5 hours, OR buy a BPA / BPS free tin of cooked black beans
1 ½ cup tomato passata – I love to use passata over tinned tomatoes to avoid aluminium or potential BPA/BPS tin lining leaching, as tomatoes are acidic and leaching potential increases. Glass passata jars are great and perfect for stock/broth storage thereafter
½ cup water
½ cup chopped cilantro / coriander
½ cup cup scallions / spring onion, fine chopped
1 tsp sea salt
2 tsp smoky hot sauce (optional but wow it makes it for the adults… use separately on your helping if you have kids who can’t hack spice.
1 corn cob, kernels chopped off
1 cup cavolo nero, collard greens or baby spinach whatever is in season or available where you are


Mexican Pork & Black Bean Pie Topping

1 cup masa harina (rough corn flour with lime (not starch!)
½ cup goat’s yoghurt (sub with any other yoghurt you prefer)
½ cup quinoa flour (or rice / buckwheat / sorghum)
1 egg, whisk in a mug before adding to the bowl
1 ½ cups water
1 cup scallions/spring onions, fine chopped
½ cup fine chopped coriander/cilantro
1 tsp sea salt
2 tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil

1 cup grated cheddar cheese. Not necessary but if your house is a cheesy top house and has no dairy issues, then feel free to add – or substitute with a few tablespoons of nutritional yeast.



Filling Method

1. Sauté onions in your olive oil/ghee until well softened and starting to brown then add the dry spices – paprika/oregano/rosemary for 1 minute until it becomes super fragrant.

2. Add the garlic and pork mince and cook for 3-4 minutes until the mince is starting to brown a little

3. Add the tomato passata, black beans, water, scallion/spring onions, coriander, sea salt, corn kernels, cavolo nero/baby spinach/collard greens and the optional hot sauce if you’re adding it. Leave all to simmer on low for 10 minutes while you assemble the pie top.

Pie Top & Finishing Pie Method

1. Preheat the oven to 200C/400F fan forced and grab a big mixing bowl.

2. Place the masa harina, goat’s yoghurt, quinoa flour, water, chopped scallion/spring onions, egg, coriander and olive oil all into a bowl and mix by hand until well combined. This mix is going to need to be able to spread over the top of the pan filled with the mince mix, so if it’s too thick to spread for whatever reason, just add 2 tbsp goat’s yoghurt and another ¼ cup water and mix thoroughly again to make it runnier.

3. Switch off the pan with the mince bubbling away. Pour the pie topping mixture over the top and spread over the whole mince mix to cover the completely around to all the edges of the pan. Top with cheese if you’re adding it.

4. Bake for 25 minutes or until top is getting golden.

5. Serve to people you love, have lovely chats, light candles and be grateful for the feasts we take the time to prepare and share. Simple pleasures yet so, so lucky, right?

Chewy Caramel Rice Bars

Chewy Caramel Rice Bars

Belinda Smith | January 3, 2019


LCM bars are popular in lunchboxes but they also have, on average, almost 2 teaspoons of sugar per bar. This is hardly the sort of food to help with concentration in class. This refined sugar-free version includes a dose of protein and good fats and has been kid approved at Lithgow’s Halloween 15 Festival (and by my own 2 of course!). I modelled this version off I Quit Sugar and Wholefood Simply – both are great sites for healthy refined sugar-free recipes.



4 cups puffed rice
30g butter
½  cup tahini*
½ cup rice malt syrup
2 tsp vanilla extract
pinch of salt

* use a little less than 1/2 cup if your children aren’t used to the taste of tahini



1. Heat a frying pan over medium heat.

2. Toast puff rice in the dry frying pan – one cup at a time. Shake the pan to move them around and be careful – they can burn quickly. You just want them to get a little crunchy. Set aside in a large bowl.

3. Melt the butter.

4. Add the tahini, rice malt syrup, vanilla extract and salt. Stir over heat until it creates a thick caramel sauce.

5. Allow sauce to cool slightly.

6. Pour sauce over the toasted puff rice, and stir through until it’s all coated.

7. Line a lamington or similar tin with baking paper.

8. Turn the coated puffed rice into the tin and press into the tin quite firmly. You can use the back of a spoon to do this.

9. Put in fridge for about 2 hours for it to firm up.

10. Remove from the tin and cut into suitably sized bars for your lunchbox. I tend to make these more squares than bars.


Freezing / Storing Instructions

Store in an airtight container in the fridge. They will be quite hard straight from the fridge but become chewy the longer they are out of the fridge. They can also be frozen and still maintain the same chewy texture in the lunchbox when they defrost.



Add some cacao to the butter mixture to create a chocolate version.

Add some mini chocolate chips or cacao crunch to the mix to create a choc chip version.

Add some peanut butter to the tahini mixture for a peanut butter version (not for at school).
