Green Yoghurt with Sweet Raisons

Left over dutch carrot leaves make for the perfect chunky dip/mash/side to any meal or nourish bowl! Do not throw them away!



Ingredients (serves four as a side dish)

The hairy leaves/stalks from a bunch of organic dutch carrots (roughly chopped)

3-4 heaped table spoons of organic thick Greek yoghurt (we use five.am organic yoghurt)

3 heaped tablespoons of organic raisons (roughly cut them in half)

Two tablespoons of apple cider vinegar

1 pinch of himalayan salt

Half a lemon (optional)


All you need to do once you have chopped your carrot leaves and raisons is add all the ingredients together and mix thoroughly. If there is not enough yoghurt then simply add some more! You can really play around with this recipe, even adding some walnuts or toasted seeds. Just have fun with it!

You can see in the image below that we used ours in roasted root vegetable nourish bowls

FullSizeRender-22

Ingredients

– Two large organic parsnips (or three medium)

– One can of organic chickpeas

– 1/4 cup of extra virgin olive oil (and and extra tablespoon)

– Pinch of himalayan salt

– Pinch of pepper

– One teaspoon of turmeric

– One teaspoon of cumin

– One teaspoon of tahini

– 1 cup of distilled water (this will vary on then consistency of your mash, you may need more)


Method

1) Preheat oven to 180 degrees celcius

2) Wash, peel and dice the parsnips. Then roast them in one tablespoon of olive oil for around 45 minutes (or until soft and golden)

3) Once parsnips are ready, put them aside and let them cool. Meanwhile start prepping the meal you will serve your mash with, or just chill out and do some yoga

4) When your parsnip has cooled, grab your food processor and place in the cooled parsnip pieces. Blitz them until they become a mash consistency. Add the can of chickpeas (drain them first!), water, tahini and spices. You will have to add more water if your mash is too thick and not blending properly

5) Serve on a nut and seed loaf, with falafels or topped on a salad!

Carrot Mash infused with Basal and Garlic

Super simple carrot mash that can be incorporated to any meal!

photo-39

Ingredients:

– Organic carrots, approximately four medium to large (the more carrots used the more mash you will make)

– One clove of garlic

– Basal paste

– Coconut oil

– One cup of water (you will need more if you use more carrots)

Method:

– Wash, peel and cut carrots into small chunks (approximately 2cm by 2cm)

– In a large pan (we use a wok), add one teaspoon of coconut oil, one teaspoon of basal paste, and one garlic clove that has been cut into quarters

– Turn the pan on medium to high heat, and cook until the garlic turns golden

– Once golden turn down the heat to low and add the carrots with approximately one cup of water (if you have more carrots you will need more water and vise versa)

– Place the lid on and let it simmer until most of the water has been absorbed by the carrots (you should easily be able to place a knife through the carrots at this stage)

– Once this stage has been reached, turn up the heat and cook the carrots until the remainder of the water has been absorbed. Cook until the carrots begin to brown

– Turn off the heat and place the carrots on a plate (you can stop here and enjoy them as they are – great add to any salad, side to any dish or as a simple delicious snack!)

– If you want to continue to make it into a mash, grab a fork and flatten/squash each chunk. You don’t want to turn it into a ‘sloppy’ mash. You still want it to be more of a ‘chunky’ mash so it adds more texture to a dish

– And voila! You have made your basal and garlic infused carrot mash!

We enjoy our mash in the mornings on toast topped with avocado. However it can be used as a dip, side to any dish or in a salad!

Enjoy!
