Sweet Potato and Pear Soup

Filed under:

Photo cred: week we’ve got a Meat Free Monday recipe from another member of staff at Ecotricity – this time it’s from Pay as You Go Assistant Hannah.

I know what you are thinking – how can pear and sweet potato work together? But it just does…

Give it a go.

Beetroot and mozzarella parcels with lemon and garlic greens

Filed under:

parcels 2Who would have believed that the humble beetroot would be recognised as a super food?

Beetroot’s deep, overpoweringly red juice has earned it the reputation as the most bossy of vegetables.
Although the leaves have always been eaten, historically the beet root was generally used medicinally for a range of ailments, including fevers, constipation and skin problems.

Beetroot is a good source of iron and folate (naturally occuring folic acid). It also contains nitrates, betaine, magnesium and other antioxidants (notably betacyanin).
More info on the NHS Choices website.

This week’s recipe from Jodie is a classic filo parcel. Give it a go and enjoy a Meat Free Monday (or super food Sunday!)

Vegan Paella with artichokes and almonds

Filed under:

2014-12-30-veganuarylogonewPaella is without a doubt my favourite rice dish. It’s so versatile and goes with pretty much every vegetable out there.

This dish, like most of my recipes, is easily adaptable depending on your preferences. This is one of my favourite versions, it just looks so beautiful, and the almonds and artichokes are a delicious combination.

In other news – it’s still Veganuary! Lots of people took the plunge to give a vegan diet a go for a New Year’s resolution this year. If you’re stuck for recipes or motivation, head over to their site for even more delicious recipes and inspiration. That ‘Really Hungry Burger‘ is surely able to make anyone’s mouth water?
