Decided each week I’m going to share 2 of my lunch bowl recipes. I know I need to stay more consistent when it comes to posting on here and this will hopefully be the solution. So first up is this lovely bowl of sweet potato and Pea Bites, Garlic Cauliflower Mash and Roasted Vegetables. I had this for lunch today and I had to share it!
Total time: 50 minutes
250G Brussels Sprouts peeled & Trimmed
1 Carrot Peeled & trimmed
1 Cup small Sweet Potato mashed
2/3 Cup Petits Pois cooked
2 Garlic Cloves Crushed
1 Tbs Olive Oil
1 Small Cauliflower
40g Cheese Mature Cheddar
3Tbs Coconut Oil melted
1 1/2 Tbs Almond Milk
1/2 tsp Ground Ginger
Pinch Salt optional
Preheat oven to gas Mark 4.
To a medium sized bowl add 1/2 of the crushed garlic and 1 tbs of olive oil, (small pinch of salt optional) and black pepper . Stir together and set aside. Remove the stem from the cauliflower and cut into florets wash and pat dry with a kitchen tissue.
Place the cauliflower in the bowl with the seasoning and mix so that the cauliflower is coated. Place on lined baking tray and roast for 20 minutes or until the cauliflower is soft and lightly browned. ( make sure to turn over the cauliflower half way through)
Take it out of the over and place it in a food processor. Add 1 1/2Tbs of almond milk and Blend until smooth. Taste and adjust seasoning if needed.
Preheat oven to gas mark 5
Trim the leeks and slice into 6 pieces
Place the Leek, carrot and Brussel sprouts in a baking Tray. Drizzle the coconut over the vegetables and shake the tray to make sure they are coated. Season with cinnamon, black pepper, ginger and the rest of the garlic. Shake the tray again.
Place In the oven For 40 minutes turning them half way through or until they are as crispy as you would like.
Sweet Potato and Pea Bites
Preheat oven to Gas Mark 5
To a mixing bowl add the sweet potato, peas grated cheese, black pepper, pinch of salt & and mix together so all if combined. Try not to mash the peas.
Line a baking tray. Using a Table spoon scoop out some of the mixture and place it on the baking tray mould with spoon and repeat. Keep going until you have 12.
Place the baking try in the oven and bake for 40 minutes turning halfway through. Be gentle turning them.
Once both sides have lightly browned remove from the oven.
