Kind of a weird one making this if you are veggie or vegan. Rolling the beetroot mixture into beet balls is like rolling mince beef, which after a few veggie years freaked me out a wee bit. But the taste far outweighs this and so they pack a real hearty, meaty punch. Continue reading ““Eat Beet, not Meat”..Balls”
These are another cracking whole food energy bar, bursting with goodness, super easy and cheap to make.
I found the green tea powder a bit scary the first time I used it. It’s quite an intense sludgy colour and my chump of a husband accidentally over dosed on it in a smoothie recently, which I have to admit I found rather amusing. However, when all combined and cooked together they taste amazing, like really.
First off, don’t be put off by the title!! Yes it contains a tin of chickpeas, but you really don’t taste them. If you like nutty, seedy, tasty energy bars then these are definitely for you, ideal for a lunchbox snack or to take out on a run. They are a go to for monkeyboy on his long runs and seem to sustain him as well as any shop bought energy bars, but without the sugar, saturated fats, crappy proteins and sickly overload. The ginger in them has been a recent addition, which tastes great and also has good anti-inflammatory properties.
Ok. My picture for this might not be the best, but it really is no reflection on how awesome this tastes. It proper tastes like a full fat, creamy, coconutty, sumptuous cheesecake and the best bit….it involves no cooking. Yes, it’s raw. I’m not a raw food expert (yet) but, the sheer mention of raw food, seems to have people running for the hills, apart from my faithful food testing husband ( or the “monkeyboy” as he is known). Every dish I make seems to be his favourite, like ever.
