Comment here if you like this post and what was the taste of them........
1. Strawberry buckwheat pancakes
- 300ml almond milk
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 75 g blanched almonds
- 100 g buckwheat flour
- 100 g rice flour
- 2 level teaspoons baking powder
- 1 ripe banana
- olive oil
- 350 g seasonal berries , such as strawberries, blackberries, raspberries, blueberries
- 1 sprig of fresh rosemary
- maple syrup
- 4 tablespoons Greek yoghurt
- Pour the milk into a blender with the vanilla extract, almonds, flours and baking powder. Peel and add the banana, then blitz until smooth.
- Place a large non-stick frying pan on a medium heat. Once hot, for each portion of two pancakes add 1 teaspoon of oil to the pan with 3 tablespoons of batter per pancake.
- Push some sliced strawberries or whole berries into the batter, then cook for 4 minutes, or until nicely golden on the bottom (the first pancakes are always slightly awkward as you’re adjusting your temperature control).
- Flip over, apply a little pressure with a fish slice and cook for 2 minutes, or until golden on the other side, then transfer to a plate, fruit side up. Wipe out the pan with a ball of kitchen paper and repeat the process.
- Stick the sprig of rosemary into the maple syrup bottle and use it to lightly brush syrup over the hot pancakes. Top each portion with a dollop of yoghurt and serve with extra berries on the side.
2.Toasted Popeye bread
- 160 g ripe cherry tomatoes , on the vine
- 4 thin slices of wholemeal bread , (35g each)
- 3 large free-range eggs
- 1 x 15 g slice of higher-welfare smoked ham
- 80 g baby spinach
- 2 tablespoons semi-skimmed milk
- 1 heaped tablespoon cottage cheese
- extra virgin olive oil
- hot chilli sauce
- Preheat the grill to high.
- Lay the tomato vines in a large baking tray, prick each tomato with the tip of a sharp knife and grill for 4 minutes, then add the bread to the tray to toast on both sides.
- Meanwhile, crack 1 egg into a blender, add the ham, spinach, a good pinch of black pepper and the milk and blitz until smooth.
- Take the tray from under the grill and divide the green eggy mixture between the four pieces of toast, spreading it right out to the edges.
- Divide and dot over the cottage cheese, then pop back under the grill for another 4 minutes, or until starting to brown at the edges.
- Meanwhile, dry fry the remaining 2 eggs in a non-stick frying pan on a medium heat, covering the pan with a lid to steam and coddle the eggs on the top – cook to your liking.
- Divide up the Popeye bread and serve each portion with an egg and half the grilled tomatoes. I like to finish with just a few drips of good oil, and a drizzle of chilli sauce for a bit of a kick. Crush the tomatoes, tear up the bread, bust up the egg yolk and devour.
- 200 g blanched hazelnuts
- 200 g Medjool dates
- 400 g porridge oats
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 3 heaped tablespoons quality cocoa powder
- 1 orange
- FOR EACH PORTION
- 200 ml coconut water
- 1 heaped tablespoon Greek yoghurt
- 80g fresh fruit, such as raspberries, blackberries, sliced banana, grated apple and pear, segments of orange
- 1 pinch of ground cinnamon or quality cocoa powder , (optional)
- Toast the hazelnuts in a dry pan on a medium heat until golden, tossing often, then tip into a food processor.
- Tear the stones out of the dates and add the flesh to the processor with half the oats, the vanilla extract and cocoa powder.
- Finely grate in the orange zest and pulse until fine, then stir the mixture back through the rest of the oats. Pour into an airtight jar, ready to use.
- When you want a portion, simply put 65g of the mixture into a saucepan with 200ml of coconut water and heat gently over a medium-low heat for 3 minutes, or until it’s the consistency that you like, stirring regularly and adding splashes of water to loosen, if needed.
- Serve each portion with a spoonful of Greek yoghurt and 80g of fresh fruit. It’s also nice finished with a pinch of cinnamon or a dusting of cocoa, if you like. And remember, if you up the number of portions you’re cooking at one time, simply adjust the cooking time accordingly. Chocolate porridge – how cool is that!
