Oat Bran Summer Pudding (Vegan, Obv)

thumbnail_DSC_0177_1

This one was an unplanned concoction that ended up tasting delicious! The only way I can describe it is that it tastes like Summer Pudding.

A few weeks back I got a HUGE Fry’s Foods order from Ocado…

13103488_10153454135931825_8641748490156129158_n-2

See?  :)  they had such a good deal on, I saved a fortune!!! Ha!

So because of this I had to make some room in my freezer…

Only 4 Ingredients and SO easy

Rhubarb (was frozen, doesn’t need to be though)

Mixed summer fruit berries (were frozen, don’t need to be)

Sugar

Oat Bran

Method

Add the rhubarb, mixed berries and sugar in a pan with water, boil them.

Then add the oat bran.

Cook until thickened.

That’s it! I can’t give quantities as I just threw them all in (didn’t expect it to taste so good! ha)

For oat bran quantity, I would guess at maybe covering the mixture with the oat bran, mixing it in and seeing if you need more… you’ll know the consistency you want.

With the sugar just use enough to calm the sourness of the rhubarb down.

It lasted a few days too!

I had mine with an Alpro Yoghurt, Pumpkin seeds and Agave syrup drizzled over it!

BLOOMIN’ LOVELY!!!! And healthy too!

Enjoy xxx

Meals I’ve eaten this week 16/5/16

Here are some of the meals I have had this week…

 

Garlic mushrooms, cherry tomatoes and grated carrot on wholemeal toast.

*To make the garlic mushrooms. Heat coconut oil and garlic on a low heat so you don’t burn the garlic (I’ve done that :) ) and gently cook them.

I’ll try to do this every week to keep giving you all ideas, show you how easy it is, that we don’t all eat salads and really to show that anything meat eaters eat, can be easily Veganised! I love eating this way!

Raw Vegan Fruit and Nut Brownies with NO added sugar!

thumbnail_DSC_1284

I’ve made my first batch of Brownies and I’m very impressed with myself if I do say so! :)

As always, I’ll keep the recipe and method simple…

You’ll need

thumbnail_DSC_1287

Dates – 430g

Almonds – 100g

Walnuts – 100g

Cocoa powder – 60g

Salt – Just a pinch

Dark chocolate Chips – Chuck a good few in 😉

Sultanas or Mixed fruit- Chuck another good few in :)

That’s all!

 

Ok, so, the method…

I used a food processor. 

Start by putting the Nuts in and mix until they are finely chopped.

Then add the Cocoa Powder and the Salt.

Mix them all together then put them in a bowl to one side.

Next, make sure all the pits are removed from the Dates and blitz them in the food processor until it forms a kind of big squidgy lump.

Take the lump of squidgy dateyness out and add the Cocoa and Nuts back in to the food processor, start to blend again.

Slowly add bits of the Date into the mixture until it mixes in. Don’t worry if some of it doesn’t mix at this point… just mix what you can.

Put the mixture into a bowl and mix either with your hands, a big spoon or a potato masher… I’m not joking, I used a potato masher and it worked a treat :)

Add the Choc Chips and Sultanas and mix them in.

Put some baking paper on a baking try. Whack the mixture on there and spread it out. (The below pic has an added ingredient which I’ll mention below.)

thumbnail_DSC_1288

Freeze for 15 mins.

Take out and cut in to desired squares.

To write my very subtle note… I used Dr Oetkers Salted Caramel Crunch.. they are blooming lovely and go really well with the brownies! After I took the pic I dispersed them out and pressed them in to the brownies…. beeeeeyoooot!

There are no added nasties, no added sugar, no dairy, no added fat and they don’t need to be cooked! They taste amazing, are good for the planet and good for you!

Please give them a try, you’ll be in raw Vegan Heaven :)

Enjoy! xxx

Bean Protein (185g of protein in the pan)

This is SUCH a simple dish to make. I literally just throw all the ingredients in… warm them up and you’re done!

thumbnail_DSC_1250

If theres any veg you like, add it in too! If theres any veg you don’t like, that’s listed below… then don’t put it in. Keep it simple and tasty :)

In this one I used…

1 tin of red kidney beans

2 tins of butter beans (just cause I REALLY like them… one would be enough)

1 tin of tomatoes

1 carton of passata (you can use another tin of tomatoes if you like)

A bag of spinach (optional… I add this to be all healthy and stuff 😉 )

Some sweetcorn.

Chuck them all in a pan and heat up.. stirring occasionally.

You could add garlic in if you wanted too… i’d just cook that off first in a little oil then add the above in :)

Thats it. Done. Easy Peasy!
