Stonesoup — 5 ingredient recipes
The first time I tried going paleo there was one meal I really struggled with. If you’ve ever had an attempt at eating low carb or going ‘full paleo’, I bet you’ve struggled with this too. Yep. Breakfast. Breakkie. Now I think about it, when I went vegan for a week, breakfast was the most tricky then too. This time, my experiment of eating full paleo for a month, breakfasts have been relatively easy. Since moving to our little farm last year and getting a flock of chooks (that’s chickens for you non-Australians!) There’s something so great about having a proper breakfast of poached eggs and some veggies. I love it. But even I can’t have eggs for breakfast every single day, so I thought I’d share my fave breakkie ideas for when eggs aren’t an option… 6 Egg-Free Low Carb / Paleo Breakfast Ideas 1. If you’d like a FREE ebook dedicated to vibrant green smoothie recipes, then have a look at the Body Mind Detox Summit which I’m participating in this year. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6.

Caramel Stuffed Apple Cider Cookies I am not a bossy person by nature. I pretty much go with the flow- I'm a middle child for heaven's sake. But I'm going to tell you to do something. Now. Make these cookies. Make a cup of tea. Vegan Fried Rice Friends, do you know how long it’s been since I had fried rice? Far, too, long.

momofuku ginger scallion noodles - in this kitchen These ginger scallion noodles are so easy that I thought they might be boring, but that definitely was not the case. They are super, super simple but the flavors come together so well to make a great vegan/vegetarian side dish – I had no idea simple green onions could give so much flavor. If you add grilled pork or chicken, these can also turn into a main meal. They originally come from Momofuku by David Chang, which can do no wrong in my book. I recently started grad school, so I am super into very easy and delicious recipes and these noodles definitely fit the bill. There could be countless other variations on these to make them a bit less simple – chopped nuts on top, more crunchy ingredients, more toppings – Jen of Use Real Butter adds mung bean sprouts, hoisin, cabbage, and bamboo shoots, for example.

What Is A Veggie Venture? A Veggie Venture is the food blog about vegetables written by Alanna Kellogg, a second-generation food columnist from suburban St. Louis, and features vegetable inspiration from Asparagus to Zucchini. But of course, there's more to the story. Broccoli Cake recipe There's lovely little patisserie in Paris Called Rose Bakery. Here, in defiance of all sense and logic an Anglo French couple have opened in the heart of the pastry version of Disneyland that is Paris aka Pastryland and they serve up lovely little Anglo French treats to a roaring trade. There isn't a traditional shop window and only a door to entice customers. The coffee, cheeses, pottery and cutlery are from England. Sometimes things that just aren't supposed to work do.

Best Ever Vegan Mac & Cheese Nooch Disclaimer: If you missed my post on Nutritional Yeast, and you’re not familiar with that ingredient, you may want to check it out before reading further because this post is very “nooch” focused. I guess I should start by saying that I’ve probably tried every “cheezy” nutritional yeast sauce out there. From tofu-based ones to cauliflower-based (!) ones, I’ve tried them all. And although they weren’t always the best, I’ve eaten them all, because they were smothered over big bowls of pasta. Let’s face it: I never say “no” to a bowl of pasta (except one covered and real cheese and/or meat!)

Crispy Baked Sweet Potato Fries Crispy Baked Sweet Potato Fries This fall for me has been a little more fast-paced than in years past. I don’t feel as overwhelmed by everything there is to do as much as the time there is to do it! Meal Planner - Free Weekly Menu Planner Template For a long time, my wife used a blank monthly calendar for planning our meals. Because she is proficient with Excel, I decided to create a simple weekly meal planner application that would allow her to select from a list of meals and side dishes, and it got a thumbs up review. So I went ahead and created a monthly version as well as a selection of printable meal and menu planners that you can download. She also wrote up some meal planning tips, that I've included below the downloads. Weekly Meal Planner for Excel, OpenOffice, and Google Sheets

Panna Cotta Tricolore This is the last dish of the menu that I have created to celebrate the 150 years of the Unification of Italy. When I decided to make a theme menu for the occasion, this dish was the first I pictured in my mind. I knew I wanted to make a layered sweet to represent the Italian flag. The choice of panna cotta came naturally, being a typical Italian dessert. When I went to Leichhardt (Sydney’s “Little Italy”), I found the 2 syrups I needed to make the red and the green layers of the flag: strawberry and mint. I also added some food coloring to make the colours more intense like in the flag.

Easy Grilled Marinated Skirt Steak Recipe While it might seem easy enough, marinating steak is tricky business: either the bits of herbs, garlic, and sugar from the marinade char and add a bitter, blackened flavor to the crust, or the steak fails to sear properly from being too damp with liquid. With a simple order-of-operations swap — marinating the steak after grilling — these problems become null. The steak still soaks up considerable flavor from its postgrill bath, which conveniently takes place during the steak's crucial resting period, and the flavors remain bright and bold. It gets better: since the marinade never touches raw meat, it doubles as a sauce that can be drizzled on the steak for added oomph. And as the marinade is applied to the steak after it's done cooking (for a mere five minutes), it's ready far faster than traditional recipes. All in all, it's an exceptional way to cook a steak.

How to Make Marshmallow Fondant This time I decided to make it with those mini fruit flavored marshmallows. I had to sort them by colour first. I figured they would add a little bit of flavor to the fondant so I wouldn't have to add much flavoring oil. I use gel colours to dye my fondant but regular food colouring will work too. You won't be able to get really dark colours without making your fondant sticky, but for lighter colours you can just even it out with more icing sugar. I also had lemon oil and coconut flavoring on hand.. oh la la the value brand (which still works fine).
