All our recipes are carefully selected for their simplicity & taste. Cleverly introducing & combining specific ingredients to boost your wellbeing.
Golden Milk Tea
Even kids love this one!
Why does it taste so good? Heating and adding ginger reduces Turmeric’s natural bitterness.
- 2 Cups of coconut milk (carton, not tin)
- 1 teaspoon turmeric powder
- One-half inch of fresh ginger, thinly sliced or diced
- A sprinkle of black pepper
- Local Honey, to taste*
*Look out for some incredible quality honeys in our future boxes
- On a medium heat, add the turmeric, ginger and pepper to the milk & stir well.
- Once simmering, heat for 2 additional minutes. (Simmering reduces bitterness).
- Strain the milk & serve warm.
- Add honey to taste.
Spinach and Chickpea Curry
by CURRYLOVINVEGGIE at allrecipes.com
- Olive Oil
- 1 Onion
- 2 teaspoons of ground cumin
- 1 teaspoon of ground coriander
- 1 teaspoon of ground turmeric
- Half a tub of natural live yoghurt
- 4-5 large handfuls of spinach
- 1 tomato
- 4 sprigs of fresh coriander
- 1 can of chickpeas
- 1 inch of ginger root
- Add black pepper to taste
Prep time: 30mins / Cook time: 30 mins
- Chop the onion and garlic, grate the ginger. Fry in a pan with olive oil. (TOP TIP: When heating olive oil in a frying pan, try adding a splash of water to keep cooking temperatures down: potentially reducing heat damage to the oil).
- When the onions begin to brown, add the spices and yoghurt (slowly stir in spoon by spoon). Leave some yoghurt for adjustments later.
- De-stalk & wash the spinach. Handful by handful add the spinach to the mixture to cook down until limp and dark green.
- Allow to cool and blend entire mixture for 15-30 seconds until spinach is chopped. Return to pan.
- Chop the tomatoes into quarters and add to the blender with fresh coriander.
- Add to curry mixture.
- Add more spices and yoghurt to taste.
- Drain and wash the chickpeas (TOP TIP: it is important to wash, to remove the protein that gives you wind!). Add to the curry mixture and heat through.
- Great served with brown rice. (TOP TIP: try short grain brown rice).
