Vegetarian Burgers

These vegetarian burgers are guaranteed to satisfy the most committed carnivores. They are full of flavour, high in protein and are so satisfying. Fill the burgers up with toppings of your choice. I find that the beetroot spread adds a sweet flavour and gives them a vibrant colour . Any leftover patties make the perfect sandwich or wrap for the next day.

Chickpea Bread

Chickpeas, also known as garbanzo beans have many nutritional benefits.  They are very high in fibre, between 65-75% of the fiber found in chickpeas is insoluble fiber, and this type of fiber remains undigested all the way down to the final segment of your large intestine.  Chickpeas also contain zinc, folate and protein which is why they are a great animal protein substitute. As I am not able to eat grains for the next two and a half weeks I wanted to find a suitable food that had the same texture as bread, was simple and easy to make and a good base for my guacamole, salsa or pesto.  I have eaten chickpea bread before but never made it and after looking online discovered how easy it was.

San Choy Bow

San Choy Bow originated from China - traditionally made with pork mince Dr Libby has added this dish to her new cook book but taken out the meat and replaced it with protein rich quinoa and chickpeas.  I made this last night for dinner and it was enough to have as a main dish.  The quinoa and chickpeas are so filling! This is a beautiful meal, so many flavors and so fresh... with the added bonus of no MSG as it's home made. I love how this dish is cooked using macadamia nut oil.  Macadamia oil is one of the healthiest edible oils and is higher in monounsaturates, the goods fats, when compared to Extra Virgin Olive oil.  The oil can be cooked at very high temperatures 210°C /410°F so doesn't burn food.
