Turmeric Carrot Muffins

Posted on

For this recipe I used turmeric powder, 1 cup white flour, ½ cup whole wheat flour, and hazelnut milk. I put raisins and dates in the muffins, and used the recommended seasoning. I added a little bit of stevia powder to increase the sweetness. I opted not to top them with anything.

In my opinion these muffins need more oil than the optional amount suggested. Mine stuck to the paper, even when fully cool.

Green Smoothie Breakfast Bowl

Posted on

Usually when I make smoothies I make them as a dessert, using fruits and not vegetables, but smoothie breakfast bowls looked like too much fun to pass up. I made the smoothie from cooked and chilled broccoli, a handful of blueberries, a banana, hazelnut milk, and stevia. To decorate I used sunflower seeds, dried goji berries, pumpkin seeds, pinenuts, coconut flakes, sliced almonds, black and white sesame seeds, flax seed powder, and flax seed powder mixed with goji berry.

This dish is not vegetarian due to the use of fish sauce. I cooked sweet pepper, butternut squash, green beans, carrot and onion in the sauce.
