Coconut bean curry with rice and quinao

image

This was such a random meal but it turned out really delicious!  Roasted a sweet potato in tin foil in the oven on medium heat for about an hr then a cooked up some beans which had been soaking all night, you could use any white beans, added some chopped cabbage (from the garden) towards the end of the cooking time.  Stir fried some onion and garlic and added broccoli (from the garden) and a tin of sweet corn.  Then I stirred in a sachet of coconut cream, the solid stuff!  A splash of tamari and a tsp of sugar.  You could spice this up with a bit of chilli instead of the sugar, I’ve got kids to feed though and a spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down as they say! Lol!  😊  The boys also ran out to the our rescue chickens to have a fried egg on top but that’s optional I guess!

  • sweet potato
  • broccoli
  • dried beans of choice
  • garlic
  • onion
  • tamari sauce
  • coconut cream
  • chilli

enjoy!

Cavolo nero & apple juice

Feeling the love from the garden today in this green juice, freshly picked cavolo Nero (dark kale) from the garden juiced with apples for a sweet treat!

  • four stalks of cavolo nero
  • two or three small apples

Chop the lot, including the leaves into pieces small enough for the juicer, juice, pour and drink in the sunshine if your lucky enough!  😊

Nothing is wasted in our kitchen, all the juicer pulp goes straight to our rescue hens…they love it and what a treat for them!
