Broad Bean Soup

Just what I needed today after a cold walk with the dogs and collecting leaves with my son for some leaf identification work we were doing.  Such a warming recipe, I served it up with a little drizzle of hemp oil but you could also use olive oil and perhaps some croutons.    mmmm!

Ingredients

3-4 cups of broad beans (frozen or fresh)

1 leek (chopped)

1 onion (chopped)

3 cloves of garlic (chopped)

1-2 red chillies (chopped)

2 tsp of cumin

1 tsp of tumeric

1 tsp of paprika

oat cream, or other dairy free cream ( a dash during blending, optional)

Green Smoothie Bowl

Add all the ingredients apart from the optional cream to the soup pot along with the stock cube and water to just over the vegetables.  Cook for 40-50 mins or until vegetables are tender and blend in the blender (be very careful when blending hot liquids, make sure the blender has the lid on securely) add in the cream of choice if you like to your desired consistency.  Serve with warm wholemeal bread or perhaps a toasted sandwich.

Any questions pop them in the comments below.

Cannellini Bean Curry

I love this curry its so simple to make but so delicious!  You can mix the curry ingredients up a little bit to your liking but this is the basic recipe that I use for this recipe.

Ingredients:

Coconut Oil (1-2tsp) use additional water if recipe is sticking

1-2 sticks of cinnamon

5 cardamon pods

3-4 sliced small onions

4 chopped garlic cloves

1-2tsp of chopped ginger

A mix of chopped vegetables like carrots, courgette, peppers etc.

1tsp of tumeric powder or freshly grated tumeric

4-5tsp of chilli powder

4tsp of ground cumin seeds

2 tsp of coriander seeds

4 Large tomatoes grated

Tin of carton of cannellini beans or other beans of choice

Additional chopped greens of choice

1-2tsp of Garam Masala

Salt & Pepper

Bulghar Wheat

Melt the coconut oil in a large pan, add in the cinnamon sticks and cook lightly for a minute or two.  Add in the cardamon pods for a few minutes and then the onions, garlic cloves, chopped ginger and chopped vegetables.  Add a small amount of water to the pan with the tumeric powder, chilli powder, ground cumin seeds, coriander seeds and grated tomatoes then simmer lightly for around ten minutes until the vegetables are tender.

Add in the beans and some additional greens like spinach or kale and simmer lightly for a few minutes, add the garam masala and season with salt and pepper.

I cook my bulghar wheat in my rice cooker on the white rice setting with a little vegetable stock and sometimes some extra greens.  You can also cook it in a pan of water similar to how you would cook white rice.

Enjoy

Chickpea Tuna Wrap

Approx Calories:

This is one of my favourite lunch items at the moment I just love it!  🙂  I’m always on the look out for new sandwich and wrap ideas for lunch and this one just hits the spot.  It’s light and you can also mix it up a bit by adding spring onions or perhaps some chopped celery into the mashed chickpeas.  You could also add a little mayonnaise or sweet chilli sauce for a different flavour.

Ingredients:

A carton or tin of chickpeas

A good squeeze of fresh lemon juice

Salt & Pepper

Optional (chopped celery, chopped spring onions)

Salad ingredients – chopped tomato, cucumber, red onion, lettuce etc.

Wrap of choice – I used an Italian flat bread

Mash the chickpeas together with the lemon juice and optional ingredients.  Season well and add into the wrap, top with the salad ingredients of choice and wrap and serve!  Enjoy!
