Pepitas – A great Source of Zinc

Every Day I enjoy a whizzed up drink. You read right: ENJOY!! It tastes great! I should be more creative here and experiment with cocoa and other fruit!!

Pepita Zinc Link Drink

Ingredients

1/3 cup pepita seeds

1/2 banana

1/2 cup whey protien mix

10 dates

2/3 cup water

Method

1. Process all ingredients and drink within 10 minutes.

This is so Yummy. I would never have thought! It sure makes a great Breakfast or Lunch. There’s a lot of protein in there to build muscle but I guess I have a whole side of muscle to build up. Better go and get back to the exercise.

Have some Fun and forget the chore!! Download here: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/cookingpot/id586052832?mt=8

Method

  1. Wash and dry all veggies with a tea-towel. Process all veggies except ginger. Process coriander last.
  2. Grate ginger.
  3. In a small mixing bowl mix ginger, sake, sesame oil and potato starch to form a paste.
  4. In a large bowl combine veggie mix, potato paste and quinoa.
  5. To make dumplings: put a teaspoon amount on the pastry, use a bit a water on the edges and squeeze the pastry together.
  6. To cook the Gyoza: Mix 1 ½ tspn flour with 200ml water and set aside. Grill gyoza in a frying pan on 1 side, then turn and add the flour/water mix. Close the lid and steam on low.
  7. Once cooked remove lid until water evaporates. This leaves them crispy. Drizzle with sesame oil and place on a serving dish.
  8. Serve with Vinegar/Soy Dipping Sauce. 1 part Rice vinegar to 1 part Soy Sauce or vary proportions to taste.

 

There are a few steps here but it’s sure worth it! I usually make at least 90 and freeze them. Best frozen before they are cooked. They are fast to defrost and easy to cook up!

Japanese Gyozas are also Healthy, delicious, vegan, glutenfree

Variations: For the base you may prefer almonds, walnuts, coconut, macadamia or a mixture. Dates can be substituted with sultanas, apricots or another sweet dried fruit of choice. You might like to add 1 tsp of ginger in the base to spice things up!

For the Topping adding lemon zest would make the slice more tart. Combining lemon with orange would sweeten it. Stevia can also be added to further sweeten the topping. The imagination can fly free here. It’s up to You!

Cook Out Not Throw Out - Super Quick Meat and Mushroom Pie

Cook Out Not Throw Out – Super Quick Meat and Mushroom Pie

Try to cook a large amount of filling, bake 1 and freeze the rest for that extra busy day (or 3). If there’s no time to make your own pastry buy the ready made stuff just be sure to read the labels. If you have an intolerance to gluten buy Gluten-Free. If you have a little more time use rice or grated or baked potato/vegetable to make a crust. Most importantly it’s best to eat Organic of Home-grown produce.

Super Quick Beef and Mushroom Pie 

Ingredients

500g ground beef

2 osso bucco steaks, bacon or sausage

400g sliced mushroom

2 tbsp butter

cooking oil

1 onion, diced

2 cloves garlic, finely chopped

2 potatoes, finely diced

2 tsp beef stock

2 tsp sweet paprika

salt and pepper to taste

1-2 cups water, as needed

puff pastry

2 tomatoes, sliced

Need a hand with the Shopping List? Download Cooking Pot the iPhone App here: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/cookingpot/id586052832?ls=1&mt=8

Method

  1. Sear the steaks and chop. In the same pan sauté the onion, add the beef, garlic, paprika and cook stirring.
  2. Add the mushroom, butter and cook until cooked though.
  3. Add the potato, stock and salt and pepper to taste. Use as little water as possible. Cook on low stirring occasionally. The potatoes will soften and thicken the mixture. Add more water if necessary.
  4. Lay out the puff pastry in a pie dish and pre-bake for 10 minutes. Scoop in the meat mixture, place the sliced tomatoes on top and decorate with pastry. Place in a hot oven (220C/425F) for 30 minutes or until the pastry is golden brown.

Variation: Empty your fridge of all those half eaten vegetables and any leftover meat. Uneaten food cannot be left in the fridge for very long so “Cook Out Not Throw Out”!!

While it’s baking prepare a Fresh Salad and Who-la … Done! Just think how Quick and Easy it would be if you had one already pre-made and unfreezing in the fridge!!

If you’re cooking 1 meal make enough for 2 or more, freeze and watch it save Your Time. Remember to “Cook Out Not Throw Out”!!
