If you follow me on Facebook or Instagram you may have come across some of these recipes already, but I thought I would share these on the blog for those of you that aren’t social media obsessed (go you if that is the case). These are just a few quick, easy but delicious meal and snack ideas that anyone can make.
Passionfruit and Avocado Ice Creams
Sounds like a weird combo but the avocado makes them really creamy and the sweetness of the passionfruit hides the taste of the avo so it’s a perfect summer treat for the kiddies.
Makes 10 bite sized ice creams
Pulp of 2 passionfruits
2 tsp honey
2 tbsp coconut water
Blend all ingredients in a blender then pour into ice block moulds.
Note: If you are using larger ice block moulds I would triple the measurements.
Baked Cod with Greens
This is a very quick and easy dinner you can throw together in less than 10 mins. Feel free to use whatever veggies you have in the fridge or any other type of fish.
1 cod fillet
6 green beans
1 kale leaf, stalk removed
1 zucchini, cut into four slices
4 leek slices
1 garlic clove, minced
1 knob of ginger, minced
Small bit of parsley (coriander would also work well)
Juice of ½ lemon
2 tbsp chicken stock (could also just use water)
Preheat oven to 210°C.
Take a piece of foil and make sure it is big enough to seal over the fish and veggies. Lay the kale leaf down first, then throw the fish on top and rub the garlic and ginger over the fish. Chuck the veggies on top and drizzle with the lemon juice and stock.
Pop in the oven for around 10-15 mins until the fish is cooked to your liking, then serve!
Grain Free Sushi
You can get very imaginative with this one and use whatever veggies, meat and condiments you like. I have included the ingredients I used as it made a great combo.
Makes 3 sushi rolls
3 nori sheets
9 prawns, cooked
3 lettuce leaves
8 green beans
Small bunch parsley
3 tbsp fermented veggies
Lemon to squeeze over the sheets
Take the three nori sheets and lay the lettuce in the middle then top with the rest of the ingredients. Drizzle lemon juice over all over the nori sheet as this makes it softer and easier to roll. Roll it up and enjoy!
Figs with Goats Cheese
This is something mum made for dinner a while ago and it was so delicious I thought I would share it. I haven’t put quantities here as you can just have as much or as little as you like.
Figs, cut in half
Smear some goats cheese onto each fig half and drizzle with a bit of olive oil. Enjoy!
