Spicy Spud Balls

These spicy spud balls are packed full of flavor with fresh herbs, spices, oats and red potatoes. They are incredibly delicious and nutritious with a nice crunchy outside. I’ve made many versions of balls and burgers using beans and grains but never potatoes. So why not try it! I can honestly say they were way better than I’d expected them to be and a big hit with my taste tester. We enjoyed eating them with pasta, salad and just by themselves with sauce.

Raspberry Jam Bars

This recipe is a one-bowl wonder that comes together in minutes and can be served warm, chilled or at room temp. Sweet, tart and gooey, these raspberry jam bars are a crowd pleaser!
While the top and bottom layers are made from the same batter, they bake up differently. The bottom is soft and chewy while the top is crisp and crunchy.
The bars can be enjoyed for breakfast with tea, for dessert or anytime you feel like treating yourself! *This recipe is so versatile. You can use different flours, nuts and jams. Experiment and mix it up!

Sesame Tempeh Buddha Bowl

A Buddha bowl can mean different things to different people but is usually a plant based dish, served in a single bowl. It can consists of small portions of whole grains, plant proteins and vegetables, topped with seeds, nuts and a sauce. It’s a nourishing meal that’s just little bites of everything. It can be conjugated to the tune of the different ingredients you choose or have on hand.
