Turmeric Chickpea Tofu - Vegan, Gluten-free, Soya-free, Nut-free

Thursday, March 29, 2018 | © 2018 |

A soya-free alternative to traditional tofu, this Chickpea Tofu (here is the original recipe) has a creamy-firm texture similar to classic tofu and is easy to pull off at home with just a few basic ingredients and super tasty too. Chickpea tofu is a traditional food originally from Burma, and often referred to as Burmese tofu or Shan tofu. It's great as the party snack or salad topper.

  • 100 g Chickpea flour
  • 1 tsp Turmeric powder
  • 1/4 tsp Freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 tsp Sea salt
  • 700 ml Water
  • 2-3 tbsp Olive oil
  • Hot chilli sauce for serving
  • Sliced scallions for serving
  1. Lightly oil an 8-9 inch baking dish or casserole dish, set aside. Whisk chickpea flour, turmeric powder, black pepper, salt, and 1/3 of water in a large saucepan. Let sit 10 minutes to hydrate, whisking occasionally to break up any lumps.
  2. Whisk in the remaining water. Heat over medium-high, whisking often to prevent lumps from forming, and bring to a simmer. Cook, reducing heat as needed to maintain a gentle simmer and stirring with a wooden spoon until very thick and beginning to stick to bottom of pot, 6–8 minutes. Chickpea tofu is ready if you see a thin film on the bottom of the saucepan.
  3. Pour the thick mixture into the prepared baking dish and smooth top. Let cool until set at room temperature, about an hour.
  4. Gently turn out tofu onto a cutting board and cut into about 15-18 rectangles. Heat half of the oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high. Carefully add half of tofu and cook until golden and crisp, 2–3 minutes per side. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate to drain. Repeat with remaining tofu and oil.
  5. Arrange tofu on a platter and top with scallions and serve with dipping sauce alongside. | © 2018 | | © 2018 |

Teff Cashew Breakfast Bars with Cacao Nibs and Goji

Thursday, March 22, 2018 | © 2018 | | © 2018 |

Teff, which is grown in Ethiopia and used to make injera (the sourdough flatbread), is a super tiny grain with a long list of health benefits. Along with being gluten-free, naturally high in minerals and super tasty, teff also helps you lose weight because of rich copper and high fiber content. Feel free to use amaranth instead if you can't find teff around you.

  • 175 g Teff seeds (or amaranth seeds)
  • Sea salt
  • 100 g Quick oat flakes
  • 100 g Raisins
  • 70 g Cashew nuts, roughly chopped
  • 20 g Chia seed
  • Pinch of cinnamon
  • 3 tbsp Coconut oil
  • 3 EL Maple Syrup
  • 100 g Cashew butter
  • 2 Large ripe bananas, mashed
  • 100 g Blueberry jam with 100% fruit
  • 50 g Pistachios, a mix of chopped and whole
  • 30 g Cacao nibs
  • 40 g Goji berries
  1. Soak teff seeds in a saucepan filled with 350ml salted water over night. Drain and set aside.
  2. Preheat the oven to 180C/350F. Line a 24x28x4cm baking pan with baking paper. Place drained teff seeds in a large mixing bowl together with quick oats, raisins, cashew nuts and chia seeds.
  3. Melt coconut oil, maple syrup and cashew butter in a saucepan over low heat until well combined. Add in mashed bananas.
  4. Pour the cashew butter-banana mixture into the teff mixture. Mix until well combined. Spread the thick mixture into the prepared pan. Smooth the surface and bake for 35-40 minutes until set. Remove and cool for 5 minutes.
  5. Spread the blueberry jam onto the surface while still warm. Sprinkle the pistachios, cacao nibs and goji berries over. Gently press to adhere. Cool completely and cut into bars.
  6. Store the rest, covered with a plastic film, in the fridge for about 1 week or several weeks in the freezer. | © 2018 | | © 2018 |
