Create Love In The Kitchen

I've been in the kitchen alot in recent weeks HAVING A BALL trying new recipes, creating my own, making huge salads, dips, sweets and even brekkie cereal. Playing with it all gives me my time to get cREatiVE, centre myself, ESCAPE, eXpLoRe, muCK around, and most importantly HAVE FUN! Here's a bunch of my Art Works, and one amazing recipe for you to try.

Sunflower Seed Pate with crudites

1 cup soaked sunflower seeds (at least 4hrs soaking time)
1 small red chilli
1 clove of garlic
3 tbs fresh lime juice
Less than 1/4 red onion - that's all I had and it worked really well
1/2 cup coriander

Blend really well until smooth (my blender blade is in need of replacement so this time my pate had a little more texture to it). AMAZING!!!

Italian pizza topped with spinach, tomatoes, sweet juicy corn, olives (not raw), mushies, zucchini spread and tomato salsa. Buonappetito!

Banana Sundae - banana sorbet, banana/maca/cacao sorbet, choc-coconut fudge and crunchy walnuts. Drool!

Apple Granola - almonds, sunflower seeds, buckwheat, apples, dates, goji berries, coconut, maple syrup (not 100% raw but I was out of agave syrup), and cinnamon...

ready to eat... minus the milk...

A different granola recipe I wanted to try - buckwheat, flaxseeds, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, almonds, walnuts, dates, apple, cinnamon, sultanas...

... after dehydrating and ready to eat!! Crunchy bite sized morsels of goodness!!

Dessert at Dads one night - nectarines, strawberries, blueberries, mango, watermelon, grapes, pineapple, passionfruit... I ate 90% of the platter I think!

Easy lunch one rainy day; raw guac, tomato curry salsa, zucchini homo, and a cheesey-red-capsicum-chia-chilli dressing/salsa/sauce with my bok choy

My Mexican Inspired Salad - greens, red capsicum, corn, coriander, avocado, lime juice, chilli flakes

Co's Super Super Balls - I call them this as my nick name has been C-o for a few years now and these babies are PACKED FULL of super super goodness!! I mixed ground raw organic goji berries, ground sunflower seeds, raw organic cacao, raw organic coconut oil, chia seeds, coconut, vanilla bean, lucuma and water and they went down a treat!

Asian Kelp Noodle "Stir Fry" - capsicum, carrot, greens, kelp and a marinade of which I cant remember... lemon or lime, sesame oil, maybe garlic? maybe tamari? most probably some chilli...
If you've never had or heard of kelp before - you're in for a real treat! Kelp noodles are simply raw kelp and water, in the form of a soft noodle. RAW NOODLES? You bet! They are low in carbs and calories, contain NO fat or gluten! They have a really neutral flavour which makes them easy to work into any dish - soup, salad, un-stir fry, or as pasta with any sauce or topping, and are always in my pantry!

Raw crackers with zucchini hommous

Asian Greens with mushies and sesame - marinated in a mix of tamari, organic cold pressed sesame oil, lemon, and a touch of miso

Fruitty Nutty Carob Bark
- so hard to stop at one piece

Salad with spaghetti veg and pepitas - leafy greens, carrot, corn, mushies, avo
