Caramel Slice is Very Nice

caramel slice

After almost 11 months my brother is back from living in South America! Yay!

I thought this called for a celebration.

I’ve been wanting to try out a clean caramel slice for ages- so thought this was a pretty good time to whip out the recipe I’d been eyeing off.

I used the recipe from Wholefood Simply and OMG- delish.

BUT. I broke my food processor…I’m just going to say that it was worth it and it gives me a needed excuse to invest in a much more hardy one (any suggestions?)

You can get the recipe here.

Tuna, rice & all things nice

I’ve been a little slack with writing lately. But not in the kitchen 🙂

Summer is approaching and it is the season for salads! So I’ve been experimenting.

The other day I whipped up this simple tuna and rice salad for my dad and I. It got the tick of approval from him- my number 1 critic so I figured it must be good! 

Ingredients: 

1 can  of tuna
1/2 or 1 cup of Brown rice (cooked)
Cherry tomatoes
Cucumber
Sweetcorn
Olives
Baby spinach
Lemon
Cracked Pepper
Low-fat feta
Drizzle of extra virgin olive oil (optional)

Chop up the veges and mix them together. Top with the tuna and squeeze the lemon on top (and olive oil if using).
Crumble the feta (you won’t need much!) and crack the pepper!

And that’s it- simple as! Enjoy.

Veggie “sausage” rolls

I haven’t eaten a sausage roll in years. Aside from being a vegetarian for the past few years, I always prefered other options.

However I’ve come across several decent recipes for vegetarian “sausage” rolls, so I adapted and merged the ones I like best and came up with some clean eating, easy and delicious veggie rolls!

What you’ll need :

-Pre heat the oven to 180 degrees

-2 cans of lentils
-1/2 a cube of vege stock (crumbled)
-1 glove of crushed garlic (you could use pre-minced)
-1 medium red onion, diced
-2 teaspoons paprika
-2 teaspoons curry powder
-1 teaspoon mixed herbs (or fresh parsley!)
-2 grated carrots
-1 beaten egg
-1 cup of corn crumbs (or bread)
-1/2 cup of walnuts, chopped
-8 mountain bread wraps

Combine all the ingredients apart from the wraps. Make sure the mixture is really well combined. I like to use a potato masher and squash the lentils a bit.
Cover a baking tray with paper. Lay out two wraps on top of each other. In the middle of the wrap place 1/4 of the mixture and roll it up.
Continue with the remaining wraps.
Lightly cover the tops in olive oil.
Bake in the pre-heated oven for 20 minutes!

See? Super easy AND delicious!
