Ingredients

  • 300g rice
  • 3 small peppers
  • 1/2 bell pepper
  • 2 tbsp tomato purée
  • 4 bay leaves
  • 1/2 red onion
  • 400g tinned tomato
  • 125g sweetcorn
  • 50g petits pois (peas)
  • 500ml vegetable stock
  • 2 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp chilli flakes
  • black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp thyme
  • 1 tsp garlic powder

Instructions

  1. Finely chop the onion and peppers, and add to the oil in a large pan on medium heat.
  2. Once the onions and peppers have softened, add the stock, sweetcorn, peas and tinned tomatoes, stirring gently to mix.
  3. Add the rice, and begin to add the spices (this bit is again up to you, add or more or less to personal taste).
  4. Add a pan lid and gently simmer for 20 minutes, stirring every occasionally to stop the rice from sticking. It is now ready to serve, I like to enjoy by adding cracked black pepper or nutritional yeast on top.

Recipe: Raspberry and Coconut ‘Cheesecake’ (Gluten Free)

Serves: 12

Calories per portion: 431kcal

Carbs: 33.3g

Protein: 9.5g

Fat: 31.5g

Ingredients

  • 500g cashews
  • 100g walnuts
  • 30 dates
  • 150g of frozen raspberries
  • 5 tbsp coconut oil
  • 100ml water
  • 2tbsp golden syrup (optional extra really, just makes it a bit sweeter)
  • 25g dessicated coconut
  • dash of lemon juice

Method

  1. Soak cashews overnight in a bowl of water, or alternatively, soak for an hour or so in boiling water.
  2. Line a 20cm cake tin (or whatever size really, it’ll just make the base thicker/thinner). Add walnuts and dates to a food processor and blend until a fine meal is produced. Pour into tin and press down to create an even and combined base. Place in freezer.
  3. Add cashews, water, oil, lemon juice and golden syrup to a food processor and blend on a high speed until a smooth consistency is formed. This may take a good few minutes, depending on the make/quality of your food processor or blended.
  4. Once your desired consistency is reached, slowly added the raspberries and coconut, and blend until the mixture is a pinkish colour.
  5. Take the base out of the freezer and pour the mixture on top, smoothing it out with a spatula or palette knife. Add more raspberries and coconut to decorate.
  6. Freeze for at least 6 hours. When needed, take out of the freezer and either leave on side or place in fridge.
