Veggie feast!

image

I was so hungry tonight and in desperate need of a veggie feast after a crappy food week! ย My new vitamix professional blender arrived yesterday and anyone that owns one will understand my excitement and inspiration to get cooking again. ย It is an amazing machine and I’ve waited very impatiently for three years to own one…finally my blender dreams have come true ha ha ha!ย  Check on the picture below for a full spec.

So to give my vitamix a workout I made a cauliflower cream sauce to cook my thinly sliced potatoes and onions in the oven and topped with nutritional yeast…also know as “cheese” sprinkles in my house! ย ๐Ÿ˜Š

Then I blended up some garlic cloves with alpro soy cream and spinach. ย I cooked this lightly in the pan to create the spinach sauce for the top of the courgette fritters. ย These were so simple and I made them by grating the courgettes and adding peppers and seasonings, then fried lightly in a little coconut oil. ย To top it off I added some fried mushrooms in the non stick (I try to use little oil) and chipotle sauce! ย The tomatoes were fresh out of the greenhouse and were super sweet on the side.

I added a huge dollop of high quality BBQ sauce and a blob of coconut oil on top of the kids potatoes for some extra fats! ย I also gave them a cheeky, cacao, banana, peanut butter with a dash of soy cream on the side smoothie which they had double helpings of.

A meal full of protein, iron, vitamins and about nine different veggie ingredients, it makes me feel super happy when my kids pack themselves full of nutritious foods. ย They certainly don’t all of the time, kids are kids and they are free to eat as they wish but I hope to inspire them! ๐Ÿ˜

Superfood for super kids! ๐Ÿ˜Ž

All of the recipes are available in the menu and will be posted soon. ๐Ÿ˜Ž ย I love it how blogging makes me hungry again lol! ย Mmmm what to eat now…

ps – I am a vitamix blender addict now! ๐Ÿ˜Š
