Quinoa Burgers

Quinoa – that wonderful ancient grain that’s a complete protein containing all the essential amino acids as well as being high in minerals, and naturally gluten-free and delicious. Here we cook it, add seasoning and vegetables, then blend half of it to make it stick together, and form it into patties which are baked in the oven until golden. Delicious with a salad or in a bun or just as is with green pea sauce! Enjoy.

Millet Stack Burger & Fries

This burger with fries has no bun, and no deep fryer, it’s a millet stack. After a bit of experimentation with our original millet burger recipe, and a few taste trials, we came up with this fusion of flavours. A great way to enjoy a grain that is easy to digest and naturally gluten free. (And I really love it with the kumera and carrot fries, although they’re really “bakes” not “fries.”)

Coriander Dressing for Tofu

Yum, look closely at the tofu in the picture, now imagine a balance of saltiness, sweetness, a touch of sour and the pungent fragrance of coriander, with a slightly crisp outer and soft inner on the fried tofu cubes. Totally yum, if you know anyone who says “tofu is tasteless” then try them on this recipe! I promise it is anything but tasteless.

Vital ingredient: fresh coriander. You can swap some other things around and substitute here and there, but you must have the coriander to get this alive. Continue reading

Chickpea, Tomato and Coconut Soup

I was Googling recipes using chickpeas and ginger, as that’s what I had on hand, and I discovered this creamy, tasty and satisfying soup which is also super easy and quick to make with ingredients that are usually lurking in the pantry! I changed it around a little, and for something really special I recommend drizzling the served plates of soup with a spoon of the coriander dressing, it’s fragrant zing adds a great contrast to the rich creaminess of this soup. I also like the addition of sliced cherry tomatoes, which cut through the gingery tang. Enjoy!
