DINNER: Lasagna with Kumara slices




This is a perfect Sunday night meal for the family, or a beautiful meal to take to your family or friends place. 

Lasagna with Sliced Kumara

500gms beef mince
1 onion, finely chopped
3-5 garlic cloves, finely chopped 
1/3 cup tomato paste

1/3 cup beef stock or water
1 can diced tomatoes 
1 tbsp freshly chopped basil

1 tsp salt

1-2 large orange kumara, peeled and thinly sliced

Optional extras:

1 carrot, grated 

1 red capsicum, finely chopped
1 celery stalk, finely chopped

  1. Heat a fry pan to high, add the onion, garlic and mince, continuously stir until the mince is brown. 
  2. Add the tomato paste, beef stock (or water), diced tomatoes, extra veggies if using, basil and salt. Simmer for 20 minutes, occasionally stirring. While this simmers, cut the kumara and make the cheese sauce. 


Cheese sauce:


"What the fat" has a great cheese sauce that I have made before. However, when I made this Lasagna we didn't have any cream to use that recipe. This recipe is a tad indulgent... 

25g butter
3 tbsp flour 
nutmeg (spice)
salt & pepper
2 cups milk
2 cups cheese 
paprika

  1. Melt the butter in a pot on the stove top, add the flour and stir to combine, sprinkle in some nutmeg, salt and pepper. 
  2. Add 1 cup of milk and continuously stir until milk is boiling. Add the last cup of milk and stir until boiling again. I often use a whisk to do this. Take off the heat and add 1 and 1/2 cups of cheese. Stir. 


Assemble the lasagna:


  1. 1/3 of the mince mixture goes into your casserole/lasagna dish (around 20 x 30cm). 
  2. Lay over the sliced kumara, try not to leave gaps. 
  3. Add another layer of mince mixture and another layer of kumara pieces. 
  4. Lastly add the last 1/3 of the mince mixture and then pour over the cheese sauce. 
  5. Sprinkle over 1/2 cup cheese, and some paprika. 
  6. Bake for 45 minutes at 180C.

And there you have it - a beautifully cooked meal! Served with a fresh green salad is a great combination. 


This can also be made with pumpkin or eggplant slices.



Enjoy!

BREAKFAST: Bacon and Egg Cups

Bacon & Egg Cups

{Makes 4 bacon cups}

8 bacon rashers
4 eggs 
1 tbsp chives, finely chopped
salt & pepper

  1. Depending on the bacon you are using, you may need to chop a bit off the bacon, if there is a lot on it, then I would chop a bit off.
  2. Use two pieces of bacon per cup, place one horizontally across the muffin mould/hole, and the other one over the top to make an shape like a plus sign '+'.
  3. Crack one egg per bacon cup, add chopped chives, pepper and salt.
  4. Bake in the oven for 20 minutes at 175C.
Notes:
You could also add grated cheese on top, or chopped tomatoes.
There should be no need to line your muffin tray, as the bacon provides enough fat.

My kids loved these, they would also make a great lunch for kids, or yourself!

Enjoy!

1/2 cup cocoa
1/2 cup shredded coconut (plus more for rolling)
1 cup boiled or roasted pumpkin

Guilt Free Treats: Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Bliss Balls


Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Bliss Balls

1 cup rolled oats
1 cup walnuts
1 1/2 cups dried dates
1 cup coconut
1/3 cup coconut oil, melted
1/4 cup water
1/3 cup cacao nibs


  1. Blend the dates, rolled oats, walnuts, and coconut until fine, in a food processor.
  2. Slowly add the melted coconut oil, while the food processor is on.
  3. Following the same method, slowly at the water - I did this because my mixture wasn't holding together well.
  4. Transfer to a bowl and gently stir through the cacao nibs.
  5. Roll into balls and if you wish roll in coconut as well.
  6. Store in the fridge or freezer until required.


Enjoy!!

Notes:
Instead of cacao nibs you could use chocolate chips, I will leave that decision up to you!
If you want less dates, leave out the extra 1/2 of a cup, and see if the mixture works, as I added mine after the coconut oil thinking it may help hold it together but it didn't, hence the water add...

  1. Fold together the mashed banana, egg whites and vanilla essence.

Guilt Free Treats: Carrot Bliss Balls

Carrot Bliss Balls

3 large grated carrots
1 cup nuts and/or seeds (I used almonds, cashews, sunflower & pumpkin seeds)
7 dried dates
3 dried apricots
2 tablespoons of honey (add up to 1/4 cup)
1 cup desiccated coconut (plus an additional 1/2 cup)
1 - 2 tablespoon cocoa (or other spices like cinnamon, mixed spice, ginger - but you wont need a tablespoon, just a teaspoon should be enough)

  1. Place all ingredients into the food processor and blitz for 3 - 4 minutes. I stop the processor every minute and scrap the mixture down with a spatula.
  2. The mixture should be thick enough to roll into balls. Use roughly a tablespoon of the processed mixture and roll into a ball, then roll it in the extra coconut.
  3. Keep in the fridge in a sealed container. Try and keep them in the fridge for a few hours before eating the first one.

Guilt Free Treats: Beetroot & Kapakapa Bliss Balls


Beetroot & Kapakapa Bliss Balls

1 cup grated beetroot firmly packed
1 cup dates
1/2 cup coconut (plus an additional 1/2 cup for rolling) 
1/2 cup nuts (I used almonds in the ones photographed, you could use any nuts/seeds)
1-2 tablespoons of kapakapa

  1. Place ingredients in the food processor and blitz for 3-5 minutes, I stopped the food processor regularly and scrap the mixture into the middle with a spatula. 
  2. Once the mixture is clumpy (but try not to have chunks of nuts), roll a tablespoon of mixture into a ball, roll in the additional coconut. Keep in a sealed container in the fridge. 


An optional ingredient is a tablespoon of honey to make it a bit sweeter, however, myself and friends didn't think it was needed. Up to you!



If you are wondering what kapakapa is, it is 'natural chocolate syrup', that is dairy free, gluten free, no added sugar and an added bonus NZ made! I recently ordered mine from 'and they lived green' (you will find them on facebook) and I'm absolutely loving it - along with my toddler. If you are a chocolate fend like me, that also doesn't want to eat too much sugar, you will love it!


If you don't have any kapakapa yet, you could replace it with 1 to 2 tablespoons of cocoa, or 1/4 to 1/2 a block of roughly chopped dark chocolate.

Enjoy!

Guilt Free Treats: Cacao and Chia Seed Bliss Balls

Cacao & Chia Seed Bliss Balls

This recipe came about when I was on the hunt for some cacao powder at the supermarket, but I was at a lost, instead I found some Whittaker's Cacao Chocolate (62% cocoa). I turned this amazing chocolate into something spectacular and nutritious with just four ingredients. That simple! 

75g Whittaker's Cacao Chocolate (62% cocoa)
1/2 avocado 
1 cup almonds 
1/4 cup chia seeds
  1. Place all ingredients into a food processor and blitz on high for 5 minutes, you may need to stop the food processor and scrap the mixture down the sides. 
  2. Once fully blitzed, roll 1 tablespoon worth of mixture into into small balls.
  3. Keep in the fridge or freezer till required.

~ You could also roll these in desiccated coconut if you wish. I made 35 bliss balls out of this mixture, I roll them small, because if I rolled big ones, I would think, oh I'll just have two, but really I'm having around a quarter of the the mixture! (And that's probably not healthy anymore!) This way, having two small bliss balls, is just a little treat to get you through the afternoon and hit those chocolate carvings.

Enjoy!

Dessert: Apple and Feijoa Nut Crumble

Apple & feijoa nut crumble

This recipe came about when I was participating in a 28 day clean eating challenge. I was given A LOT of cooking apples and feijoas from my parents, so I went to work stewing them all. And what to do with some of this stewed fruit.... a nut crumble of course!! So here you go, here is my recipe for Apple & Feijoa Nut Crumble - refined sugar free, grain free & gluten free

Note: I had 15 cooking apples and over 40 feijoas, that I stewed in a crayfish pot! (So if you have less fruit, use less vanilla, cinnamon and honey)

Peel, core and roughly chop the apples, add these to a pot along with 1 cup of boiling water. Give it a stir, then add 3 teaspoons of vanilla, 2 tablespoons of honey, 3 teaspoons of cinnamon and a sprinkle of stevia (a natural sweetener - next time I wouldn't add the stevia). Let this simmer on a low heat for 20 minutes. The apples will go mushy - but that's what you want! Turn the heat off, stir the feijoas through. Leave everything in the pot to cool. 


Nut Crumble

1/2 cup almonds
1/2 cup cashews 
1 cup walnuts
1 cup coconut, desiccated
85g butter


Blitz the nuts in the food processor till crumbly then stir in the coconut and rub in the butter. 
Sprinkle over top of the apple & feijoa mixture and bake in the oven for 12-15 minutes at 160C, or until the nuts are brown and to your liking. Serve with cream (optional).

Note: The baking dish I used was 20cm x 30cm.
