1 orange, unpeeled and coarsely chopped

Delicious Dairy Free Dill Cashew Cheese

Delicious Dairy Free Dill Cashew Cheese

Kate Parker | July 4, 2020

 

 This is my GO TO cashew cheese recipe! It’s a total crowd pleaser and super easy to tweak to your tastes. It can be used as a spread, a dip, to be dolloped on pizza instead of dairy cheese, used as a pasta sauce – so many options!

For Spanish and Mexican style dishes I like to take out the dill and add some smoked paprika. For Italian, I up omit the dill and add some basil and extra olive oil.

You can leave out the herbs and spices and just make a straight up cheesy sauce which can be used for mac & cheese, or thinned out with extra water for au gratin.

You can even add more water and cook off the mix with some tapioca flour and agar blended in to make a set cheese. Maybe I’ll get that variation as a recipe up onto the website in the future for you! Pop in a comment if you’d like it.

Ingredients

1.5 c cashews, soaked for 6-8 hours
4 tbsp nutritional yeast
4 tsp apple cider vinegar
1 tbsp olive oil
1 small clove of garlic, chopped
½ tsp salt
½ c chopped dill
4 tbsp water

1 tbsp extra olive oil

Method

1. Add cashews, nutritional yeast, acv, olive oil, garlic, and salt to a high speed blender or Thermomix.

2. Process until smooth, scraping sides, or tamping as needed. As you start to process add water 1 tablespoon at a time, until you achieve a smooth, creamy consistency.

3. Add dill and process on low until well combined. Taste and adjust seasoning as desired to get the right balance of freshness, saltiness, cheesiness and tang. Add more nutritional yeast for a more cheesy flavour.

4. Pour into a jar and level out. Top with tbsp of olive oil to preserve in the fridge for up to a week, or divide into smaller jars and freeze for use as desired.

Thermomix Wholefood Chicken Stock Powder

Thermomix Wholefood Chicken Stock Powder

Alyce Alexandra | June 30, 2020

 

Recently, I’ve found myself cooking with a lot of chicken-style stock cubes. These add big flavour to dishes with pretty much no effort… so you can imagine I’m a fan! But, I really disdain purchasing them… the individual wrapping for each cube, the palm oil… eek. It’s not how I like to cook (or eat!). So, like many of my best recipes, I set about making a HOMEMADE version! And I’m pretty chuffed with the results, if I do say so myself.

My version is –
MSG free
Palm oil free
Vegetarian
Vegan
Gluten free
Dairy free
Soy free
Nut free
… and it tastes just like CHICKEN STOCK POWDER!
Whip up a batch and store it in a jar in the pantry. Use 2 teaspoons whenever a recipe calls for a stock cube. Perfect!
This recipe makes 2 cups

Ingredients

200g salt (fine or rock salt)
2 tbsp dried parsley flakes
2 tbsp onion powder
2 tbsp garlic powder
2 tbsp nutritional yeast flakes
1 tbsp brown sugar or coconut sugar
1 tbsp yellow mustard seeds
2 tsp dried thyme
2 tsp celery seeds
1 tsp ground turmeric

Method

1. Place all ingredients in TC bowl, mill for 2 minutes, speed 10.

2. Store in an airtight glass jar. Use whenever stock cubes or stock powder is specified in a recipe (2 tsp per stock cube). Healthier, better for the environment, cheaper!

1 Tbsp nutritional yeast
1 tsp dulse flakes
1 clove garlic
1/2 lemon juiced
Crack of salt and pepper

Thermomix Super Spiced Potatoes

Thermomix Super Spiced Potatoes

Alyce Alexandra | June 14, 2020

During the week I write about food, on the weekends I grow it! And nothing makes me happier. I may work in the kitchen all day, but it’s the garden that’s taught me the most about food. Truly understanding seasonality, quality, variety and nutrient profile, respecting how precious food really is and giving thought to the soil it grows in, the farmers that tend to it, the bees that pollinate it, the animals that contribute the fertiliser. Tomato and basil make the perfect pair in the kitchen, but did you know planting basil around tomato plants is a natural way to deter pests (and very effective in my experience!).

This past weekend I harvested 15kgs of potatoes, 5kgs of honey, eggs, dahlias, zucchini, eggplant, lettuce, basil, parsley, strawberries and tomatoes 😍 (I made a quick video in my instagram stories showing the honey harvesting step-by-step – check it out in my Instagram highlights!). 🥬🐝💕🐥🐛🍎

 

I took red, purple and kipfler potatoes them straight into the kitchen and roasted them up with Indian-inspired spices and lots of olive oil (all mixed through in the Thermomix!). Once they were hot and crispy I tossed through some currants for sweetness. They were divine…. a little sweet, a little spicy, a little salty, soft on the inside, some little crispy bits on the outside. So of course, I wanted to share the recipe with YOU! Now, of course, you may not have your own freshly harvested red and purple potatoes, but I reckon some kipflers from a market or farmers market will be just as good! And if you’re interested in growing potatoes, you can buy ‘potato sacks’ and literally grow them on the patio. How much fun would that be!

This recipe is:

+ vegetarian
+ vegan
+ dairy free
+ gluten free
+ soy free
+ nut free
+ egg free
+ serves 4

Ingredients

40g olive oil
2 tsp salt flakes
1.5 tsp coriander seeds
1.5 tsp cumin seeds
1 tsp curry powder
1 tsp ground turmeric
1 tsp chilli flakes (optional)
1kg mixed potatoes, cut into bit-size pieces (or just kipfler potatoes)
60g currants

Method

1. Preheat oven to 210°C.

2. Place oil, salt, coriander seeds, cumin seeds, curry powder, turmeric and chilli flakes in TC bowl, mix for 5 seconds, speed 7.

3. Add potatoes, mix for 10 seconds, reverse speed 2. Transfer to a large baking tray (or two smaller ones) lined with a silicone baking mat and roast for 25 minutes.

4. Remove from oven and toss through currants. Serve immediately, or fridge for later (they’re also delicious cold in lunchboxes and salads!).

Another simple, delicious, fresh recipe for you to cook in your Thermomix or thermo cooker!

15 Minute Char-grilled Brussels Sprouts

15 Minute Char-grilled Brussels Sprouts

Georgia Harding | June 9, 2020

Don’t write the humble Brussels sprout off – chargrilled and tossed in a delicious dressing, this very nourishing vegetable is de-licious!

Prep: 10 minutes
Cook: 5 minutes
Total: 15 minutes
Serves: 4

Ingredients

12-15 brussels sprouts
1 tsp dijon mustard
3 tbsp lemon-infused olive oil (I like Cobram Estate brand from all supermarkets)
2 tsp red wine vinegar

Method

1. Prepare you Brussels Sprouts by trimming the stalks and stripping the outer leaves. Cut lengthways in half.

2. Heat the chargrill on your BBQ to high. Cook the sprouts very quickly, just until the outer leaves are blackening.

3. In a small bowl mix the mustard, lemon infused olive oil and vinegar. Toss through the Brussels Sprouts to coat and serve immediately.

Tip

The best ways to cook them – first and foremost – QUICKLY. Overcooking them results in the release of the stinky (though very healthy) glucosinolates which has most likely turned you off this vegetables in the past. Other ways I like to cook them include:

– BBQ’d
– Stir-fried
– Roasted
– Steamed

Other flavours that work well with Brussels Sprouts

– Toss through with crispy bacon
– Mix with caramelised onion and balsamic vinegar
– Nice with grated parmesan or another strong flavoured cheese
