Pears made into cute little mice!
* A quick pear dessert - In general, a typical Australian dish is a typical British dish, which is to say a typical European or American dish with most of the subtleties of flavour (and difficulty in making) removed.
The following dessert is a genuine Old Family Favorite in Australia.
* Candied angelica is almost impossible to find in North America. Anything else with the appropriate properties of sweetness and shape may be substituted, e.g. a piece of chocolate or candy cut to size, such as an Ovation mint divided longitudinally or shoestring candy.You can also add the shoestring for whiskers.
A rambling mint bush is found across south eastern Australia in moist forests and around waterways. This subtle Australian native herb with the taste and aroma of spearmint. So yes you can use mint from your backyard. I added chia seeds to mine for healthy having lots of fiber, Manganese, Phosphorus and omega-3 fatty acids.
This is just a little recipe off the side of a box of silken tofu (Mori-Nu). I didn't care for the entire recipe, which involved broiling the tofu...far too much effort to put the oven on when you're planning to stir fry. What I did like about the recipe was the sauce - quick and simple for those days when you don't have time to mess around with too many ingredients, but still don't want to open up a packaged sauce. You can thicken up the sauce if you choose, or add some heat if that's what you're going for. As this has honey I can't say it's vegan, however I think you could sub agave or some other sweetener quite nicely (brown rice syrup??). Let me know if you try that. The original recipe said it was enough for 4, but if I was making it for 4 adults I would probably double it which is why I said it serves 3. Enjoy!
Quick, healthy, easy, no cook Bush meal for a hot Aussie summer day with a boozer! Pepperberries a mild, fruity pepper flavour will bleed a soft pink colour into marinades or pickle solutions, pale sauces and yoghurt.
There is a lot of information out there about Chia seeds (Salvia) and what a nutritional powerhouse they are. I'm trying to find new ways to incorporate them into my diet, aside from sprinkling them on breakfast cereal. Recently my health food store handed out a few recipes including chia seeds, which is where this one stems from. I'm no expert but I do know they are high in omega-3, fibre, calcium and protein. I know of vegans using chia seeds soaked in water in place of eggs (or in place of "flax" eggs). I'm planning to post a recipe for chia egg replacer shortly. This page has lots of great information about these seeds - http://www.living-foods.com/articles/chia.html. I halved the original recipe, since these seeds are expensive I didn't want to risk it. If you don't happen to have coconut oil (aka coconut butter), I think it would be fine to leave it out because there is enough oil in the tahini and almond butter to hold things together. These make a fantastic snack.
Sometimes you just want a simple, good sandwich that doesn't involve faux deli slices. I keep a tin of chickpeas on hand for just such occassions, and never make it exactly the same way twice...but this is generally a combo of ingredients and flavours I enjoy. I also like to add in a bit of flax oil, just to get my omegas in. Served on some toasted bread, this is a quick and satisfying lunch.
Lovely raw vegan pesto, which doesn't contain any oil. Toss with your favourite pasta or use as a spread. If using over pasta I like to use some olive oil. This recipe calls for fresh parsley, cilantro & spinach - but sub basil for any of these, or double up on one if you happen to have a big supply of one or the other. Found in Alive's July 2010 magazine, which they paired with a raw zucchini pasta. You can also freeze prepared pesto in ice-cube trays or flattened out to 1/4" thickness.
Terrance from Auckland shared his favourite recipe with us. Orange Roughy is a white, mild, firm textured fish popular from the cold deep waters of New Zealand. You can substitute halibut or red snapper.
This is a very simple recipe, and tastes delicious. I just whipped it up with ingredients on hand, and wanted to record it to refer to next time. It's great for the South Beach diet, too. I used left over turkey breast (my standby - Herbed Turkey Breast by Kate in Ontario #22235). Note to World Tour participants - California is a large producer of walnuts. This recipe represent that state.
