I was so hungry tonight and in desperate need of a veggie feast after a crappy food week! My new vitamix professional blender arrived yesterday and anyone that owns one will understand my excitement and inspiration to get cooking again. 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! 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! 😊
Then I blended up some garlic cloves with alpro soy cream and spinach. I cooked this lightly in the pan to create the spinach sauce for the top of the courgette fritters. 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. To top it off I added some fried mushrooms in the non stick (I try to use little oil) and chipotle sauce! 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! 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. 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! 😍
Superfood for super kids! 😎
All of the recipes are available in the menu and will be posted soon. 😎 I love it how blogging makes me hungry again lol! Mmmm what to eat now…
ps – I am a vitamix blender addict now! 😊
