Green Felafel Burger

Who said burgers can’t be healthy? These green felafel burgers pack in plenty of veggie servings as well as some serious plant based protein and fibre (seriously, forget the wacky powders, chickpeas are so full of goodness, they should be called superfoods). Use a wholegrain/high fibre or sourdough buns for extra health benefits.

Zucchini and cinnamon baked oats

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Anyone who has ever grown zucchini at home will know how devious they are. One minute they are small and cute and then you turn your back and they morph into giant monster zucchinis that you have no idea what to do with. It’s lucky that zucchinis are such a versatile vegetable, you can make them into noodles, fritters, savoury slice or even hide them in chocolate cake. One of my favourite things to do with zucchini is grate them into my morning oats and cook until creamy to make “zoats”. Recently we picked some giant zucchinis and I hadn’t made baked oats in a while so it was only natural that I make these into baked zoats too.

Cauliflower and Zucchini soup with chickpea croutons

In winter I love to make up a massive batch of soup to keep in the fridge to eat throughout the week. They are so easy to make, just put in a pot and let simmer away. I love soups to have heaps of veggies in them as well as a bit of spice with things like ginger for added immunity, this one doesn’t disappoint.

Fig, Walnut and Zucchini Muffins

Anyone who has ever grown zucchini themselves will know just how quick zucchini’s grow and how they can easily get lost in the undergrowth only to be found days later when they have become absolutely huge! growing up, mum would always use up these mega zucchinis in a chocolate and zucchini cake, a super sneaky way to hide extra veggies.

I have decided to give the old zucchini cake and upgrade into some healthy (almost carrot cake like) muffins with a little bit of spice and a whole lot of dried figs and walnuts.  These gems are lovely and moist thanks to the zucchini and can be made suitable for vegans too. Beware though, these disappear quickly!
