Mostly healthy & tasty colourful cooking with Sophie's twist!

My favourite breakfast of the moment! Gluten-free!!!

You know, 2 posts ago, I told you all that the 1st fresh Belgian strawberries are in Season, yeah! I made these delicious Raw Dreamy Creamy Strawberry Smoothies & now, I have a new favourite breakfast of the moment, being all Gluten-Free too,… Check it all out!

MMM! A power Vegan & Gluten-free breakfast!

MMM! A power Gluten-free breakfast!

Doesn’t this bowl of Gluten-Free Deliciousness looks incredibly tasty???? Can you guess or see what ingredients are in it???

Yum Yum Yummm!

Yum Yum Yummm! Can you see the bee pollen?

This breakfast is not vegan because I used to top my breakfast with a special ingredient called bee pollen,…so technically it is not vegan! You can’t leave them out because you really need them in here! :)  What are bee pollen, I hear you say,…Bee pollen is collected by bees from flowering plants and formed into granules. Every variety of flower in the universe puts forth a dusting of pollen. 

Bee pollen is the food of the young bee and ithas about 40% protein. It is considered one of nature’s most completely nourishing foods. So bee pollen are 100% natural & considered a superfood! It has nearly all nutrients required by humans.

Pollen are rich in energy, regulating & purging! Pollen of flowers contain proteins, vitamins like  the B-vitamins, enzymes & minerals.

It is especially beneficial for the extra nutritional and energy needs of athletes and those recovering from illness. It is a natural antidote for fighting allergies particularly hay fever and sinusitis.

 Research shows that pollen counteracts the signs of aging and increases both mental and physical capability. 

 Bee pollen is more rich in proteins than any animal source. It has more amino acids than beef, eggs, or cheese of equal weight. Bee pollen is particularly concentrated in all elements necessary for life. Not to mention, very delicious! One of the most interesting facts about bee pollen is that it cannot be synthesized in a laboratory. 

It is important to recognize that 1 teaspoon dose of pollen takes one bee working eight hours a day for one month to gather!!!

To see if you are allergic, try 1 bee pollen granule. Most people try to consume 1 teaspoon per day. If you are not allergic to it, you can increase your intake to 1 tablespoon per day! 1 tablespoon = 5 gr of protein!! Good, hey? It is best kept in the fridge.

It has one downside. It is very expensive, I think. I bought my 250 gr pot in my local bio-planet & it costed me: 11.85€!! 

So, now you know that it is good for you, even great for you! Now, l hope you try this lovely colourful good-for-you energizing breakfast, all Gluten-free too! :)

Recipe: For 1 big bowl of delicious breakfast

Ingredients:

330 gr vegan yoghurt, a bit sweetened, I used Alpro

1/2 cup medium gluten-free oat flakes

1/4 cup sunflower seeds

6 large ripe juicy strawberries, hulled, each cut up into 2, see pictures above!

1 tablespoon bee pollen

Method:

1. Take a larger pasta or breakfast bowl. Add your vegan yoghurt in the middle & spread it out a bit using the back of a spoon. Top it with your Gluten-free oats. Scatter your sunflower seeds on top of the oats & around the yoghurt, in a circle. Arrange your strawberry halves, on top of it all. Finally, scatter your bee pollen on top of the strawberries & around the edges of your bowl! Enjoy!

Vegan vanilla almond cream!

Vegan delicious vanilla almond cream!

Vegan delicious vanilla almond cream! Raw apple sliced dipped in this! Yummy!

Today, I invented this tasty Vanilla Almond Cream! All vegan goodness! If you leave out the vanilla extract it is also raw! ;) This is made by soaking whole almonds in clean water for about 48 hours!

This is a bit more thick than normal cream. You can make it to your liking & you can choose how thick you want your almond cream to be. You can add whatever you fancy with it, like cinnamon, or vanilla, like I did or raw cacao nibs or more sweet, by added 1 or 2 more pitted dates. It is up to you! :)

This is the thickness of this vegan vanilla cream!

This is the thickness of this vegan vanilla cream!

Recipe: For about 500 ml =2 cups

Ingredients:

1 cup soaked almonds, for 48 hours, 2 nights in the fridge, why? I wasn’t home yesterday, so I made it this morning! Soak them for at least 1 night or at least 8 hours! Your soaked & puffed up whole almonds, will look like this:

48 hours soaked whole almonds, rinsed & drianed well!

1 cup of 48 hours soaked, rinsed & drained whole almonds

3/4 cup of clean water

1/2 teaspoon of a good vanilla extract/ I use home-made

2 dates, or more to your liking, I like my cream not too sweet!!

Method:

1. Take your Vitamix-container & add soaked almonds, 3/4 cup of water, vanilla extract & 2 dates. Place fitted lid on with the tamper. I made a thicker cream. If you want to receive a thinner cream, begin by using 1/4 cup of water & gradually add more, if you prefer that! :) Blend on high-speed until fully joined bu using your tamper to push the ingredients into the running blades. It will look something like this:

MMM!

MMM!

2. Pour 1/3  of this vegan vanilla almond cream in a lovely dipping pot & dip peeled raw apple slices in it, for a lovely healthy snack, see 1st picture! Or pour this cream into a smaller container  with fitted lid & place in the fridge, for later use. Before using, stir the cream round with a spoon so that the vanilla extract is well mixed in! I bet this would also be very yummy with some vegan cake slices! I ate 1/2 of the cream with my morning breakfast, like here:

A yummy healthy breakfast!

A yummy healthy breakfast!You can add fruit but I didn’t bother!

How did I make it?

Ingredients, for 1 smaller breakfast:

3 tablespoons gluten-free oat flakes

Method:

1. Place your gluten-free oat flakes in a bowl. Top with your vegan vanilla almond cream & scatter your raw cacao nibs over the sides & top! Enjoy instantly! :) MMM! :)

My mom’s wholesome cookies! :)

A wholesome food gift! :)
A wholesome food gift! :) Tasty, tasty, tasty too!

A few days ago, my mom & dad came to visit me. We all drank coffee together. She presented me with her home-made wholesome cookies. They were superb. They are softer cookies filled with great tasty ingredients like unsweetened dark chocolate, unsweetened dried cranberries & flax seeds. She even made them with wholemeal spelt flour! They also make a great breakfast & are filling! ;) Yummmm! They are a great food gift too, I agreed here! ;) Check it out:

Yum Yummm!

Yum Yummm!

Recipe: For about 20 larger cookies!

Ingredients:

150 gr organic butter, on room temperature

150 gr coconut sugar

2 organic eggs

225 gr organic wholemeal spelt flour

1 teaspoon fresh yeast

a bit of lukewarm water to dissolve your yeast in, not too much!

1/4 teaspoon baking soda

a pinch of sea salt

100 gr dark chocolate, at least 72% cacao, cut up roughly

100 gr of dried unsweetened cranberries

80 gr broken flaxseed

Method:

1. Take your food processor & add S-blade. Add cranberries & chocolate. Pulse until they form smaller pieces, or pulse them just to the size that you want them to be. You also can do this by hand, cutting with a knife,…it is up to you!

2. Take a larger bowl & add butter, sugar & salt. Cream it all together. Mix the eggs through it. Add flour, dissolved yeast, baking soda & chocolate pieces & mix for about 2 minutes, until fully incorporated. With the help of a spoon, stir the cranberry pieces & flax seeds through the dough. You can also do this in your Kenwood bowl with your kitchen robot! It makes my life easy! Roll this dough out into a larger sausage shape with a thickness of about 4 cm. Place cling film over it & place in the fridge, to stiff up a bit, for at least 2 hours!

3.  Take 2 baking trays out of your oven & place a Silpat over it. Preheat your oven to 180°C ( 350 F ) for 10 minutes. I always use a fan oven. Adjust your oven to the right temperature! Place the baking trays with the Silpats on it , close to you. Take your stiffened up dough out of the fridge & remove the cling film. On a lightly floured kitchen counter, with the same spelt flour, of course, cut up the dough into larger or smaller cookie shapes, just the way you like them. My mom made them larger, see picture above. She flattened them a bit & placed them well spaced apart on the Silpat. Do the same with the remaining dough. Bake them for about 12 minutes & let them on the Silpat for about 10 minutes. This will give a lovely shine on the bottom of your cookies. After that, transfer them to a wire rack to cool down completely! If you have leftovers, place them in a lined cookie box! :) They are excellent with fresh cup of coffee! You don’t taste the yeast at all! ;)

My mom's wholesome cookies & in at the end , my dad's wholemeal spelt apple tart ;)

There are NO EGGS in here though! :)

Recipe: For 2 persons with a whole lot of hunger!

Ingredients:

a fruity extra virgin olive oil ( evoo )

1/4 teaspoon + 1/4 teaspoon of smoked Maldon sea salt

1/4 teaspoon + 1/4 teaspoon of ground Jamaican pepper

1 teaspoon of ground turmeric ( Curcuma )

2 fat cloves of garlic, peeled & finely cut up

1 medium white onion, peeled & finely cut up

1/2 teaspoon + 1/2 teaspoon extra of dried Provençal herbs

125 gr of firm tofu, well-drained, pad dry on double kitchen paper, pressed for 30 minutes, if needed, pad dry again

1 large Belgian endive ( witlof ), cleaned, hard bottom on the inside cut out, chopped up into smaller chunks

5 big large white mushrooms, cleaned & cut up into thicker slices & then crosswise into smaller pieces

1 green bell pepper, cleaned, seeds & white bits removed, cut into strips

Method:

1. Heat a large non-stick pan on higher heat, add 1 tablespoon of evoo & heat up. Add chopped onion, garlic & fry for about 2 minutes. Stir often. Add 1/4 teaspoon of smoked Maldon sea salt & 1/4 teaspoon of ground Jamaican pepper. Stir often. Now, add green pepper strips & fry for about 3 to 5 minutes or until nearly soft. Add 2 tablespoons of olive oil & add chopped mushrooms. Add some dried Provençal herbs seasoning, about 1/2 teaspoon. Add another 1/4 teaspoon of ground Jamaican pepper & 1/4 teaspoon of smoked Maldon sea salt. See that your mushrooms are browned on all sides & cooked through. Now, add crumbled tofu. Crumble it with your clean hands. Add 1 teaspoon of turmeric & scatter it over your crumbled tofu chunks. Fry & stir everything round in the hot pan. Fry your tofu scramble until cooked through & browned on all sides. Check the seasoning again & adjust if you need to. I added 1/2 teaspoon of dried Provençal herbs extra. Stir & taste again! Just before serving, I scattered some smoked Maldon sea salt flakes over the surface of my dish. Serve instantly with a loved one or gobble it all up by yourself! Enjoy! xxx :)

I am going to start with a new blogpost every month about my favourite foodie product of the month & this time it is smoked Maldon sea salt flakes, yes, you guessed it right! ;)

Smoked Maldon Sea Salt!

Smoked Maldon Sea Salt!

Smoked Maldon Sea Salt is my favourite cold smoked sea salt from the English town of Maldon. This smoked sea salt has a smoked flavour to it. This smoked sea salt is produced in the form of larger sea salt flakes & have a slightly brownish-white colour, see?

We want RAW Vegan Gluten-free Green mean smoothies!! Yes!

We want Raw Green mean Smoothies!

We want Raw Green mean Smoothies!

I made these smoothies after my morning work-out! This is my 4th invented Green smoothy! This smoothy is a bit more sweet because of the sweeter apples! They were super easy to make, refreshing & very healthy too!  This was our drinkable breakfast! ;)

What the heck is coconut water, I hear you say? 

Lovely Organic Coconut water!

Lovely Organic Coconut water!

Coconut water has many health benefits. It is the clear liquid inside young coconuts. Coconut water is a natural energy or sport’s drink due to its high potassium & mineral content. It also can help you lose weight, it is low-fat, all-natural, super-hydrating, fat-free, it is good for your skin, cholesterol-free, it is nutrient-packed, potassium-stacked & has mega-electrolytes. It is really energizing!! So it is good for you! The only downside is, that it is costly. I buy my organic coconut water, from the brand Dr. Antonio Martins, bottled in cool 500 ml cartons, in my local Bio-planet & it costs me: 2.99 €. So, I drink it only 2x/week!

Read all of the good stuff in here!

Read all of the good stuff in here!

Recipe for 1000 ml = 4 cups

Ingredients:

500 ml organic coconut water

2 ripe organic sweeter apples, Unpeeled, cored, cut into chunks

2 teaspoons raw barley grass powder

1 teaspoon chia seeds

1/2 tablespoon broken flaxseed

4 heaped tablespoons oat bran

Method:

1. Place every ingredient in this order into your Vitamix container & put the fitted lid on.  Use the tamper to push the ingredients into the running blades. Blend on high & on full-power until it is fully mixed. This can take between 15 to 30 seconds. Turn all power off & taste! You must taste the sweeter apples, the coconut & the barley grass at the end!

My 3rd RAW, Vegan, Gluten-free Green Smoothies!

This morning, I made my 3rd Vegan, Gluten-Free Green Smoothies! You can read about my 1st Vegan, Gf Green smoothies here & about my second V, GF Green Smoothies: here!! A few days ago, I was playing with my ingredients but the end result was not quite right, but Today it came out perfectly, I added to my ingredient list, 2 things extra, ginger & ice cubes,…Don’t you want to drink 2 smoothies, as a nice breakfast or a good snack, straight away?

RAW, Vegan, Gluten-Free Green Smoothies!

RAW, Vegan, Gluten-Free Green Smoothies!

Recently, I discovered a new Raw superfood powder called Organic Raw Barley Grass Powder! What is it, I hear you say, well,…Barley grass is one of the rare superfoods originating from Europe. Young leaves that sprout from barley seeds are harvested, dried and ground into powder in the process of lyophilisation.

Organic Raw, Vegan, Gluten-Free Barley Grass Powder!!!

Organic Raw, Vegan, Gluten-Free Barley Grass Powder!!!

RAW Organic Barley Grass Powder!

RAW Organic Barley Grass Powder!

Barley grass powder is a rich source of chlorophyll which importantly detoxifies the body.

It also has many vitamins and over 50 different minerals: 30 times more vitamin B1, 43 times more vitamin B6 than in a banana, and 11 times more calcium than in cow’s milk, 7 times more carotene and 5 times more iron than spinach, and 8 times more vitamin C than oranges. It also has 37 times more calcium than in cereals, 16 times more protein than in cow’s milk, 128 times more folic acid then in a tomato & 260 times more natural vitamin A ( betacarogene) as in leafy greens!

It also improves digestion, lowers bad cholesterol levels, treats anaemia, sooth arthritis problems & works as an alkalizer. So it so good for you & your health. It tastes a bit bitter & that is why I begin with 1 teaspoon per person, per smoothy. This way, you don’t taste it that much, I also added 1 tablespoon maca powder to my smoothy because I like the more malty flavour it gives & to hide the barley flavour a bit more! ;)

** Recipe: For 6 cups of green smoothies= 1500 ml

You need to drink 2 smoothies for a nice filling healthy breakfast! :)

Ingredients:

3 cups unsweetened almond milk

1 cup of ice cubes

2 teaspoons raw barley grass powder

2 juicy oranges, peeled & each cut into 2

1 tablespoon raw maca powder

1 tablespoons of black chia seeds

1 very large ripe banana, peeled & cut into 2

1 piece of 3 cm ginger, peeled & cut up

Method:

1. Take your Vitamix & add every ingredient in this order in it. Place fitted lid & the tamper in it. Blend on full power & on high-speed until fully mixed. This takes me about 15 to 30 seconds. Check if the smoothies are to your liking! You must taste the ginger & almond & a bit of the green barley grass. I like my smoothies this way, not too strong with the raw barley grass powder!! Pour into lovely smoothy glasses & enjoy 2 drinks straight away as a nice filling breakfast, not to mention: healthy, healthy, top! ;) MMM,…!!! If you liked this post, SUBSCRIBE to Sophie’s Foodie Files: It is free! RSS Feed RSS – Posts
