green pea fritters {

2 tablespoons fresh chopped parsley 2 organic/free range eggs zest of 1 lemon 150g (5¼ oz) good quality ricotta 1 ½ tablespoons coconut flour (see notes) Pinch of sea salt and pepper

{ reMeMBer } It’s important to cook them over a low, gentle heat on each side until golden and cooked through. serve with a squeeze of lemon and enjoy. You can also accompany with leafy greens or steamed vegetables and drizzle with cold pressed olive oil and lemon.

smash the green peas roughly either by hand or by using a blender or food processor. Make sure to keep it chunky as this is not a puree. Combine the smashed peas into a bowl with parsley, egg, lemon zest and coconut flour. the coconut flour will thicken the mix and allow it to hold its shape when cooking. season with salt and pepper and taste to check.

+ Makes 6 + { nOtes } Coconut flour is available from most health food stores. It can also be replaced with other gluten-free flours such as almond meal or brown rice flour. Quantities of almond meal or rice flour will need to be doubled – just enough so that the fritter will hold its shape when cooked.

Add the ricotta last, smashing it through the pea fritter batter – make sure to leave nice chunky bits of ricotta through the mix. Heat a pan over a low heat with a little olive oil. Cook spoonfuls of pea fritter mixture - as much as you would pikelets or small pancakes. You should get about six green pea fritters.

Winter is my favourite time of year. Soups, stocks, casseroles, roasted vegetables and an endless supply of tea…yum! Having grown up in country Victoria on farms and in small country towns, then having a father who worked in horticulture, most of my upbringing was spent eating from the land and mostly vegetables and grains at that. Every year, winter takes me back to my roots. Recently though I have fallen in love with bone broths, especially chicken broth. They are such a wonderful addition to breakfast, lunch, dinner or just a warm cup between meals. In this issue, the beautiful Merrymaker Sisters will enlighten you about the benefits of bone broth and they also share some recipes with us. So please enjoy our winter edition. A cup of tea, or warm broth alongside it is optional — but highly recommended.

Pictured above, from left, snags from Lewis & Son’s world first range, Saba’s teff, Coconut Magic raw energy bars, Slim Secrets protein pud.

NATURAL AUSSIE SNAGS Lewis & Son have the first range of smallgoods in the world to be FODMAP Friendly certified and endorsed by Coeliac Australia. Their smallgoods contain no artificial flavours, colours, preservatives, fillers, phosphates or any other nasties. Lewis & Son opened in 1945, selling a selection of charcuterie, meats and pickled things. As a Melbourne-based deli and butcher, they incorporate the multicultural culinary influence of the city into their range of products. They have ingredients labels where you can easily pronounce every single ingredient and can safely eat them too.

Teff tends to have a mild hazelnutty flavour with a slightly sweet taste. Unlike other gluten-free grains, it tends to be more gelatinous making it hold better in baking and versatile to cook with. Initially you can start by substituting about ½ of the required flour with teff. This will instantly increase the nutritional value of your baking. Teff is great for pancakes, cakes, bread, crepes/wraps, muffins, cookies and almost anything else you use flour for. It is also great to add to vegetable loaf and vegie burgers to bind your ingredients in place of egg. www.sabashealthfoods.com.au

RAW ENERGY BARS www.lewisandson.com.au

THE ANCIENT GRAIN OF ETHIOPIA Teff is an ancient grain of Ethiopia and hailed as the new ‘super food’ by the Guardian. It’s one of the world’s smallest grains, packed with nutrition and naturally gluten free. Teff is high in calcium which is not usually found in grains. Teff is high in resistant starch, a type of dietary fibre, that can benefit blood-sugar management and digestion. Teff is higher in protein than other grains. It’s also packed with vitamins and minerals including thiamin, Vitamin B6, Vitamin C, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium and manganese. This makes it a great substitute for other flours and to compliment other flours.

Coconut Magic Raw Energy Bars are made using simple raw food, wholefood and superfood ingredients. They are loaded with coconut oil and a hint of coconut nectar to make them taste amazing and be amazing for you. Coconut Magic’s raw bars were created out of the business owner’s desire to eat healthy and raw whilst on the go. Each bar is vegan, gluten free, paleo friendly, sugar free, dairy and soy free with just 100 per cent wholefood and raw food ingredients. Made in Australia from natural ingredients and nothing else added, Coconut Magic Raw Energy Bars are available at health food stores and independent supermarkets. www.coconutmagic.com

SUPERCHARGE YOUR WINTER { H OW T O H E A L Y OU R G U T A N D T H R I V E ON AN 80:20 DIET } Words Michelle Dryburgh

Lee Holmes believes in all things in moderation, but when the chill of winter sets in, she’s not afraid to indulge. Slow-cooked meals, hot pots, one-pot meals and stove-top casseroles are at the top of her ‘to eat’ list during the cooler months, but she’ll occasionally allow herself a favourite treat like hazelnut gelato or fish and chips. “For me, it’s about being mindful of what you are eating and appreciating the food for what it is and how fortunate we are in Australia, to have an abundance of seasonal produce at our finger tips,” she says. “I live by the 80:20 rule which I believe for me is a good balance. This means I eat mainly wholefoods 80 per cent of the time and allow myself a little leeway 20 per cent of the time for things I love.” Following the release of her successful titles Eat Your Way to Good Health, Eat Yourself Beautiful, and Eat Clean, Green and Vegetarian, Lee is writing her next book on healthy fasting, as well as developing a four-week online Heal Your Gut program helping people regain health with wholefoods. She is also awaiting the release of her Heal Your Gut print book in September. The online program aims to restore inner health, helping people experience wellness from head to toe, gain energy, vitality and feel healthy again. The next program starts on July 6. “The program is going really well and I have been receiving some wonderful and inspiring testimonials,” Lee says. “I can reach more people and bring them the best experience with brand new recipes and content they can use every day.”


YUM. | LEE HOLMES

Lee also offers personal health coaching, food shopping tours and healthy pantry courses. Drawing on her formal studies in food and nutrition along with her personal experience with autoimmune disease, she is committed to helping everyday people find a diet that works for them. The Supercharged Food blog all began with Lee documenting her recovery from illness using a wholefoods approach. “More than five years ago I became unwell and ended up in hospital, taking a concoction of different pharmaceutical drugs to treat a chronic autoimmune condition and fibromyalgia. “Although I kept taking the medication I didn’t seem to be returning to my once healthy and bubbly self.” After researching her condition and consulting doctors on what could be done to treat it, Lee began developing anti-inflammatory meals and recipes omitting gluten and nurturing gut health.

telling you is a good step towards knowing what is right for you.” Lee’s love for cooking and creating delicious meals dates back to her childhood, growing up in the UK with her mum and sister. She remembers a barren backyard transformed into a suburban oasis of crunchy green vegetables, homegrown lettuce and the most vibrant, juicy strawberries she has ever tasted. “Mum encouraged us from a young age to know where our food came from and eat as fresh and as seasonal as possible, so I guess I have her to thank for my foodieness.” Her mother’s passion for fresh produce is reflected in Lee’s recipes, easy to make with every day ingredients. “I love creating meals that are a feast for the eyes, and the soul. Food that looks great often tastes great as well. I like to see an array of vibrant colours and textures on the plate.”

“Over time, I noticed a considerable improvement in my health and continued to eat wholefoods that my body loved.

When she’s not cooking, Lee can be found shopping for fresh produce at local farmers markets and stores nearby her home in Watson’s Bay. She also enjoys letting someone else do the cooking once in a while.

“I don’t eat gluten often, as when I do I get gastro-intestinal symptoms and pain and bloating. I do think it’s a personal decision though. Listening to your body and being conscious of what it is

“I eat at local cafes such as Dunbar House and usually order a big breakfast. I also like the dandelion and wattle tea and juices at Orchard Street in Bondi.


YUM. | LEE HOLMES

I love creating meals that are a feast for the eyes, and the soul. Food that looks great often tastes great as well. I like to see an array of vibrant colours and textures on the plate.

“I’m not a food snob and like simple, well cooked food. I live by the beach so I do a lot of water-based activities as well as yoga and walking. You’ll also find me walking my dog Cashew around Watson’s Bay, spending time with my family and watching movies. I love to cook more in winter too.” This winter, Lee will be knuckling down in her home office writing her next book, as well as planning her Australian tour set to launch in September, along with the print version of Heal Your Gut. “I love the book because it’s a simple, achievable gut-healing protocol that will inspire and motivate people to restore their inner eco-systems. “It’s a really beautifully designed handbook which contains a wealth of practical nutritional information to help you ‘springclean’ your gut, along with meal plans and over 90 nourishing, antiinflammatory recipes. “The recipes I have created include lovely smoothies, healing soups, easy-to-digest meals, fermented foods and tempting tummysoothing desserts.” As some of the coldest temperatures of the year take hold across the country, Lee says it’s ‘okay’ to indulge in unhealthy food sometimes.

“It’s good to eat clean but not squeaky clean. Winter means you can indulge in delicious warming and comforting soul foods. “I am not a vegetarian although I don’t see the need to eat meat with every meal. There are so many ways to enjoy warming and oven baked vegetarian meals.” Lee recognises there is no one size fits all approach to eating healthy, and admits one person’s favourite food could be another’s poison. “You need to listen to your own body and what it needs. It’s about finding the foods that work for you and don’t aggravate your condition,” she says. “When you consume foods, take note of what makes you feel great and also the meals that make you feel a bit uncomfortable and not ideal. Your own body gives you good advice. “For some, raw foods may work, for me they simply do not. My gut finds raw foods difficult to digest so I steer clear of these. Be mindful of what you are eating but don’t be too vigilant. “Food is meant to be enjoyed.”

{ HEALTH BENEFITS } Peas really are the bees’ knees. Their juice is highly beneficial for people with gluten intolerance, as it repairs the membranes in the small intestine that can prevent fats being absorbed. Peas are also rich in protein, fibre, iron and vitamins A, C and B1 (thiamine), which is essential for energy production, nerve function and carbohydrate metabolism. The water-soluble fibres in peas bind with cholesterol and help excrete the baddies from the body, promoting intestinal health. + Serves 3—4 +

THE BENEFITS OF BONE BROTH { S WA P Y O U R C O F F E E F O R A B R O T H E E , J U S T L I K E T H E S E T W O F O O D I E S I S T E R S H AV E D O N E } Words Emma and Carla Papas, www.themerrymakersisters.com

Bone broth is our new best friend! We know this because our house officially smells of bone broth (and we don’t mind at all). We started eating a real food, paleo inspired diet back in 2012 and it took us 2.5 years to look in to bone broth. Way too long! So even if you’ve just started a real natural food lifestyle, we highly recommend you get amongst the ‘brothee’ (that means bone broth instead of coffee) and start makin’ da bone broth (not sure why we say this… but it’s fun)! Seriously, bone broth may just change your life. So let’s get straight to it… how the heck do you make bone broth? We were a little erked out by the whole idea of bone broth and when looking at recipes we popped them in the ‘too-hard basket’. We have no idea why we popped them in there because making bone broth is easy as. And there is nothing erky about it at all. It’s actually really fun to make and super interesting to learn more about the amazing health benefits.

To make bone broth you’ll need a slow cooker or a big stock pot. We’ve never used a stock pot - to be honest, leaving the stove on all day/night completely freaks us out! You’ll need to get organic (at least free range) bones as they need to be super dooper healthy. Bone broth extracts all the good stuff from these bones, so we don’t want bones from sick animals. We also want to support organic/ free range farming because no animal should be in a factory farm. You’ll also need apple cider vinegar (this helps to leach all the good stuff from the bones) and filtered water. Then chuck in some vegies, switch on the slow cooker for 24-48 hours and ta-da — bone broth! Well, you do need to strain the bones first and then, ta-da — bone broth! When it cools you also get this cool layer of lard on top that you can save for later and cook with. Talk about sustainable. And yes… cooking with lard is healthy! Let us know how you go, especially if you’re new to bone brothing. Bring on the healing bone broth, we say! This is a simple recipe so stay tuned for more bone broth recipes as we learn more:

What are the benefits of drinking bone broth? OMGoshhhhhh… there are so many benefits of drinking bone broth. If you’ve read anything about the GAPS diet you’ll know. Here’s just some… • Aids/improve digestion and can heal leaky gut,

YUM. | THE MERRYMAKER SISTERS

Add the vegies, herbs and bones to the slow cooker, add the water and apple cider vinegar and allow to sit for 30 minutes. Ensure the water just covers the bones.

As the broth cools the lard will harden on top. Scrape this off and keep for cooking (instead of butter/oil) or some people just eat it.

Turn on the slow cooker to low and leave for 24 hours (we leave beef bones on for 48 hours).

Reheat broth on the stove for a cup of healthy goodness, add to your dinner meals, make a gravy or make a soup. So many options!

Once cooked, turn off the slow cooker and allow to cool a little. Use a slotted spoon to scoop out the vegies and bones and remember, the meat and veg can definitely be eaten. Lamb necks have lots of delicious meat. Strain the broth with a fine sieve in to a large bowl/jug. Pour the broth into jars and pop them in to the fridge.

{ TIP } The broth will stay fresh in the fridge for up to five days or you can freeze it.

When the potatoes are finished, take out of the oven and allow 5 minutes to cool. Add 1 tablespoon of butter to each potato.

Place the potatoes on to the prepared baking tray and drizzle the potatoes with macadamia oil. Place in the oven for 45 minutes or until soft under the skin.

DELICIOUSLY WHEAT, GLUTEN & DAIRY FREE

By Antoinette Savill Antoinette Savill’s first book Learn to Cook Wheat, Gluten and Dairy Free is one of its publisher’s bestselling health titles.

The recipes are smart, modern, international and anything but depriving by using alternative ingredients such as coconut milk and rice flour. There are more than 120 recipes for vegetarian dishes, lunches and suppers, soups and starters, main courses, fish and sea-food, game and poultry, meat, desserts and puddings, cakes, muffins, cookies, breads and tarts.

Another feature of the book is that the recipes are equally divided into slower and faster choices as a way of balancing the relaxing enjoyment of cooking and eating with the type of express cooking recipes we need in our hectic times. www.fishpond.com.au

HAPPY HORMONES, HAPPY TUMMIES { SHE MAKES WOMEN’S HORMONES HAPPIER THAN A PHARRELL WILLIAMS SONG } Words Michelle Dryburgh

From acne and unexplained weight gain to fertility issues and even depression – hormones play a major role in many female health concerns. A lot of health problems can also be linked to gut health, which is never under more pressure than in winter when viruses and bacteria are at their peak. Combined, hormonal imbalances and compromised gut health can aggravate one another, creating a continuous cycle of seemingly unrelated symptoms and health issues. Identifying and correcting those imbalances is what Dr Nat Kringoudis does best and she notices an increase in health complaints during the cooler months. “Aside from the obvious colds and flus, very often because we aren’t necessarily eating right for the season, we can see an increase in pain type ailments like arthritis and period pain alongside skin conditions too,” says Nat. “Also 80 per cent of our immune system is shaped by the state of the gut so it makes sense to keep it happy by topping up regularly on probiotics and fermented foods to be constantly restoring and supporting good gut flora.” When it comes to optimising overall health in winter, Nat says the key lies in choosing foods suited to the weather. “If we are living through winter on icy cold smoothies and salads, our bodies very often fail in their digestive ability,” she says. “That is, our digestive systems become sluggish and we find our gut becomes unsettled. Winter should be all about warm foods that satisfy our bodies nutritionally.” Eating for improved gut health is particularly imperative during winter for people with coeliac disease and other autoimmune illnesses. “Because there may be issues with absorption, it is imperative those with

coeliac disease pay special attention to getting the nutrients their bodies need, as well as including food as medicine to nourish and to heal. And by heal I mean moving towards not showing symptoms of the condition and setting the body up to thrive.” Known as the Happy Hormone Revolutionist, Nat specialises in treating and preventing, fertility issues, thyroid problems, hormone imbalance and stress using nutrition, traditional Chinese herbal medicine and acupuncture. She is renowned internationally as an author on these topics and has recently returned to treating patients at her clinic, The Pagoda Tree, in Melbourne, as well as online consultations by Skype. Nat is also hitting the road this month with her tour, Debunking Your Thyroid, presenting a series of events in Melbourne, Perth and Sydney. “I’ve discovered so many women are in the midst of terrible thyroid issues, even though their tests say they are okay, their signs and symptoms say otherwise,” says Nat. “Equally there are many women being diagnosed with thyroid issues so, with this in mind, we are touring the country to help women get clued up on their thyroid health, how they can prevent an autoimmune condition, steer them toward remission if they have a diagnosed condition and help Australia continue to move towards better health.” Also busy working on a new book, Nat says the highlight of the past 12 months was her latest release, Well & Good, which provides a guide for women of all ages on how to cook and eat to support their hormones.

As soon as you enter the carpark of The Farm at Byron Bay, the big white letters spell out what you’re about to feel….a whole lotta LOVE.

are all working towards the common mission of ‘Grow, Feed, Educate’.

As a regular visitor to Byron Bay from the Gold Coast, my family and I had driven past the property on the left hand side of Ewingsdale Road and admired the huge old tree and house many a time.

When I first visited the farm, it was on our way home to the Gold Coast from Byron Bay. We made a quick stop and had a little look around before picking up some organic garlic, bone broth and citrus salt, which have since become staples in my kitchen. I instantly fell in love with the place and knew it would become a regular playground for my little foodie family.

Then one day, we drove past and noticed a lot of action on the big old property. Not one to be left out of the loop, it didn’t take much investigating (ie. social media exploring) for me to find out the seed that was ‘The Farm’ was finally sprouting and about to bloom! The Farm has been months in the making and a whole lot of love, sweat and maybe some tears have been poured and ploughed into this spectacular 86 acre space where a hub of micro businesses

The next time we visited, we went for breakfast and given how popular it had already become, I completely expected to wait a long time not only for a table (given we had not booked) but for our food too. Surprisingly, our wait was minimal on both accords (despite the full house, or should I say ‘full farm’?) and the staff were second to none. They somehow manage to combine the


YUM. | CAFE

perfect amount of farm friendly hospitality with slick service that has you feeling more like you’re visiting a friend for breakfast than a working farm complete with a 96-seat restaurant and a bakery, deli, florist and yoga studio. The restaurant is headed up by the boys from Three Blue Ducks who beat plenty of other high profile chefs/restauranteurs to secure the rights to feed at The Farm. With their families in tow, they left the big smoke and committed to working on the farm as well as in the kitchen which speaks volumes about their commitment to creating a true ‘farm to table’ dining experience. As we sat on the verandah overlooking the dairy and rolling green hills, I realised we couldn’t get more ‘paddock to plate’ unless we literally ate our food out on pasture (which you can do by the way, have a picnic in the paddock!). The menu is simple, nutritious and easy to choose from for those with dietary requirements. With my entire family living gluten, dairy and sugar free, there were plenty of options to choose from without needing to ask the waitress 20 questions (a familiar process for those of us with dietary requirements). The menu changes depending on what the team have harvested from The Farm and sourced locally but the dedication to real food is constant. The Farm is a destination in itself and a feast for the senses. Each time we have been, there is something new to discover. The Farm has left no field unploughed in offering something

for everyone — foodies and families alike. Whether you simply sit and savour the flavours of the farm and take in the gorgeous view, or you get your hands dirty on one of the free farm tours, it’s a lovely experience to see traditional farming practices in place and know that old fashioned food values are making a strong comeback. I love everything about the place…the location, the food, the sinks (check them out and tell me you don’t want a sink just like theirs in your dream country farmhouse) and the store. Oh, the store is so lovely and offers freshly prepared meals, coffee, baked goods (yes, with gluten free options) organic produce and groceries. My hot tip is to take an esky with you so you can stock up on broths, meats and their famous eggs (from the pasture-fed girls you’ll see roaming the grounds) and organic garlic. Visiting The Farm feels like coming home and whilst you do have to leave at the end of the day, if you’re anything like me, you’ll leave with a full belly, a smile on your face and a basket full of farm fresh produce.

Words Joanna Hall

There’s always plenty of excitement at the thought of travelling overseas, but if you have a food allergy or intolerance it comes with concerns about what you’ll be able to eat. Take coeliac disease, for example, a common food intolerance affecting around one in 70 Australians and people of all ages where the only treatment is a lifelong gluten-free diet. Managing a special diet at home can be challenging enough, but when a person with a food intolerance is away from home, food availability sometimes causes great anxiety, leaving many with the idea that travel is impossible. Chisholm & Turner Travel Associates manager and travel consultant Matthew Chisholm has first-hand experience of food intolerance; his wife, Julia, and one of his four children are wheat intolerant. “We are definitely more vigilant about everything we eat,” Matthew says. “Away from home we need to be prepared, which means calling ahead to check if my wife’s and son’s diets will be catered for, or arranging to bring our own food. It can be very limiting with the places we can go and the experiences we can enjoy.” These issues however, provided the inspiration behind a specially chartered 15-day river cruise from Amsterdam to Budapest, departing on August 23, 2016. It’s a cruise which explores the stunning Rhine, Main and Danube Rivers, but will also be entirely gluten-free. “My job is to take the hassles out of a holiday by organising a trip to suit a person’s needs,” says Matthew. “The aim of this cruise is to create an environment where passengers can enjoy the best of Europe from the sanctuary of a private river cruise charter, without the stress of having to worry about what they can eat.” The cruise is aboard the glamorous Avalon Impression, one of Avalon Waterway’s newest “suite ships” launched last year. It’s a vessel with a contemporary design worthy of a stylish boutique hotel, and a host of facilities including an open-seating dining room, a Sky Deck with sun loungers and a whirlpool. Another major drawcard is where you sleep.

In addition to its 16 staterooms, the ship boasts 65 spacious Panorama Suites, sharing the unique feature of wall-to-wall and floor-to-ceiling sliding windows which transform the space into an open-air balcony. Avalon Waterways is already well known for fine dining, but this cruise departure will operate with a 100 per cent gluten-free kitchen and gluten-free drink options, mitigating any cross contamination issues. “One of the most exciting benefits is that coeliac or gluten-intolerant guests won’t be limited to the ‘gluten-free option’, and instead will have a full menu to choose from daily,” says Matthew. Besides a hot and cold buffet breakfast and buffet lunch, options to whet the appetite for dinner range from a Caesar salad or tropical coconut and lime turkey soup, to grilled beef tenderloin steak and broiled fillet of Norwegian fjord salmon with all the accompaniments. Avalon Waterways is also known for its knack of matching cuisine to the region the ship is in on any given day and, with a 100 per cent gluten-free kitchen, this unique feature is preserved for all guests. There’s also no need to worry about sourcing gluten-free food to take ashore in unfamiliar locales as specially prepared tapas boxes will be available for pre-order on the day prior. Avalon Impression will meander through the heart of iconic European countries including Holland, Germany, Austria, Slovakia and Hungary, calling in at fascinating destinations along the way. Experiences to savour include cruising the scenic canals of Amsterdam and along the dramatic Rhine Gorge past the legendary Lorelei rock, and exploring Cologne, the charming wine village of Rüdesheim, medieval Bamberg, historical Nuremberg and magical Vienna. The magnificent rivers on this Gluten Free European River Cruise are a quintessential experience which everyone should enjoy at least once in their lifetime, combining a diversity of countries, coupled with a fascinating history and dramatic landscapes. And for anyone following a gluten-free diet, it’s a great way to see it all in comfort, style and without the worry.

HOLE LOT OF LOVIN’ { ALLERGY-FREE DONUTS DELIGHTING THE YOUNG AND YOUNG AT HEART } Words Michelle Dryburgh

Living with food allergies, intolerances and autoimmune illness often means going without. And for gluten-free eaters perhaps one of the most craved treats is the humble donut. Many have childhood memories of sinking their teeth into a hot, sugar-coated donut at special events or their local market. It suddenly becomes nothing but a distant memory after diagnosis with coeliac disease and the need for a gluten-free diet. One Brisbane establishment is changing all that with its Heavenly Donuts - free of gluten, dairy, nuts, eggs and yeast. Available from The Organic Frog’s Boundary Street Market stall, Fortitude Valley and Crestmead stores, Heavenly Donuts are quickly gaining a widespread following, with some customers travelling more than 30 kilometres for a taste. “We’ve had people say it’s the best donut they’ve ever had, gluten free or not,” says Heavenly Donuts creator William. “We’ve received an exceptional level of feedback from café owners too, even chefs saying the donuts are sensational both in flavour and texture. It’s a bit beyond what I thought would happen.” The Heavenly Donut contains a secret formula of vegetables, with no artificial ingredients and around a teaspoon of sugar. William has watched as customers enjoy three or four donuts during conversation and remark they still feel no bloating. Taking a number of months to perfect the recipe, William trialled the donuts on customers and made adjustments until they were just right. The donuts are fried in sunflower oil, and The Organic Frog’s equipment is capable of producing up to 600 donuts in one hour. They sit among menu offerings like gluten-free bliss balls and organic cold-press juices, coffee and milkshakes, appealing to Brisbane’s health conscious. The cafes form part of a not-for-profit foundation which is committed to teaching people about the nutritional and health benefits of organic produce and the risks of chemicals and pesticides in our food. They partner with health and wellness speakers to present free seminars on a range of topics.

increasing demand for gluten-free and allergy-free options and set about learning how to adapt his style of cooking. He admits the ingredients in Heavenly Donuts are simple, but the technique is harder to master. “Chefs tell us they try to make this kind of product but it doesn’t work out. You see, it’s not so much what you do but the way you do it. “Bakers are often making 50 separate lines, breads, pies, cakes and slices and just don’t have the time to develop a sophisticated product like this.

“We focus on nutrition, disease prevention and how to alleviate certain conditions with nutrition,” says William.

“Honestly, I am so proud to offer a yummy product that’s made from vegies and tastes great. I feel honoured to be able to bring a smile to people’s faces.”

ALL THINGS GREEN AND GLUTEN FREE {

A 100 PER CENT GLUTEN FREE CAFÉ WITH A CONSCIENCE

}

Words Michelle Dryburgh

It’s hard to walk past offerings like sweet potato chips, acai bowls with chocolate paleo granola, and lamb, cashew and pumpkin pies. Particularly when they’re all 100 per cent gluten free. Green Bees Organics is a café that truly walks the talk, embracing a healthy wholefoods menu and an equally organic approach to doing business. The West End hot spot oozes a rustic eco vibe, fitted out with recycled materials from fallen trees and wooden crates, to recycled chipboard. Packaging and cutlery is made from corn

starch, sugar cane, paper and the naturally fallen outer sheath of palm trees. Even the staff uniforms are environmentally friendly with organic cotton shirts, handmade aprons derived from flax and name tags made of wood. But the food is what’s been drawing crowds here since opening in February, with fresh produce and free-range grass fed meat to provide a 100 per cent organic, gluten free, dairy free and cane sugar free menu with raw, paleo and vegan options.

“We have received so much support from businesses and the locals in West End and throughout Brisbane, some people even coming as far as the Sunshine Cost and Gold Coast to taste our food,” says Green Bees founder Maria Faalafi.

Maria was forced to leave work as she battled with depression, chronic fatigue, anxiety, blurry vision, dizziness, panic attacks, migraines and digestive issues. Doctors failed to return answers, until a naturopath recommended a gluten- and dairy-free diet.

Already Maria and her husband Luke are thinking of the future, with plans to expand and make healthy food more accessible all over Australia.

Within weeks, her headaches disappeared along with cramps, bloating and nausea. Maria was later diagnosed with hypoglycaemia and set about understanding how to heal her body with food.

“My dream is to make healthy, quick, organic food as accessible as McDonalds or KFC. And to educate people on the importance of preventing and managing illness by improving their diet rather than trying to cure symptoms.” As a child, opting to watch cooking shows over cartoons was a sign of things to come for Maria. Growing up in Uruguay, she was surrounded by Spanish and Italian foods like pizza, pasta, icecream and plenty of meat. She loved baking cakes, cookies and pancakes. She moved to Australia with her family at the age of 12, living in Sydney until her early twenties when she moved to Brisbane for a new job. At the same time, she and Luke were renovating and Maria was studying a Bachelor of Business. Life was hectic, and her health quickly deteriorated.

Although running a café is hard work, Maria has learnt to put her health first ensuring adequate nutrition and rest. “I still have to scrub floors, do dishes, pick up heavy boxes and get dirty in the kitchen, but I wouldn’t have it any other way!” she said. “When people come into our restaurant and tell us their lifechanging stories and how happy they are to have found our place it makes me believe all the hard work is worth it and we may be able to change the world one mouthful at a time.” Green Bees Organics 47 Vulture Street, West End QLD www.greenbeesorganics.com.au

CRISP AUBERGINES, SWEET SPICED YOGURT & POMEGRANATE Inspired by a dish eaten at a friend’s house years ago. It was her Hyderabadi mother-in-law’s recipe. She served it as part of a meal but I love it just with crispy naan. Add chickpeas to the spiced oil before tipping it into the yogurt for extra protein, if you want. Pomegranates add a burst of sweet, sour freshness but you can substitute halved baby tomatoes. Lastly, you can griddle the aubergines instead of frying, it will still be lovely.

Pour around 1cm of oil in a large frying pan. Add as many aubergine slices as you can get in one layer and cook over a medium-high flame until golden on the base (around two to three minutes). Turn the slices and repeat. Place on two pieces of kitchen paper, then put in the oven to keep warm. Repeat with the remaining aubergine. Alternatively, you can bake the aubergine slices in a preheated oven at 180ºC/350ºF/gas mark 4, spread out in one layer on a large baking tray, but they will not be as crisp.

BENGAL TIGER LENTIL CURRY A classic North Indian lentil dish, this can be dramatic looking, as the yellow lentils stand out from the smaller black pulses. Most importantly, it is luscious and delicious. Once the lentils soften, the more you stir them the creamier they become. Lentils and butter go really well together, so I do recommend you add a little butter at the end before serving. This is great with rice or Indian breads.

{

INGREDIENTS

}

20g root ginger, peeled weight, half of it julienned 4 garlic cloves, peeled 175g Bengal gram (chana dal), well washed 75g split black gram (dhuli hui ma dal), well washed 1/2 tsp turmeric salt, to taste 4 tbsp vegetable oil, or half oil, half ghee 2 tsp cumin seeds 1 large-ish onion, finely chopped 4 small-ish tomatoes, blended until smooth 2 tsp ground coriander 1 tsp ground cumin 3/4 tsp garam masala 1/4–1/2 tsp chilli powder handful of chopped coriander leaves 10–20g unsalted butter, to serve (optional, see recipe introduction)

Blend the 10g chunk of ginger and the garlic with a little water until smooth. Place both types of lentils in a bowl and wash in several changes of water, until the water runs clear. Now tip them into a large pot, cover with 7.5cm of water and bring to the boil. Skim any scum from the surface. Add the turmeric and some salt.

they sizzle and darken, add the onion and cook until colouring at the edges. Add the ginger and garlic paste and cook until the extra moisture has evaporated and the garlic is starting to colour. Add the tomatoes and remaining spices and cook down for 10–15 minutes, until the masala releases oil.

Cook, partially covered, giving the pan an occasional stir, until the lentils have softened and are starting to look homogenous with the water. Stir occasionally at the start and more often as they become tender.

Pour the tarka into the lentils with the julienned ginger, adding water from the kettle if it seems too thick. Make sure the whole thing looks like a lovely unctuous mass (if not, cook a little longer, adding water if necessary) then taste and adjust the seasoning. Stir in the coriander and butter, if using, and serve.

POMEGRANATE SOUFFLÉ WITH ROSE & RASPBERRY CREAM I love dessert and almost always need to finish a meal with something sweet. This lovely recipe is inspired by Indian flavours and the country’s love of floral notes. It is a soufflé but don’t be afraid, it has never failed me and always rises to the occasion with the pomp and gravitas of a presiding maharaja. It might seem like a long recipe of many stages, but it comes together quite easily. I like to eat the dish by making a dent in the middle of the soufflé and pouring in the cream, so every bite is an ethereal mix of cloud-like pomegranate, sweet-sour raspberries, fragrant rose and rich cream. My ramekins hold 150ml; try to stick to that volume, or the cooking times will be affected.

{

INGREDIENTS

}

FOR THE SOUFFLÉS 200ml pure pomegranate juice 2 slightly rounded tsps maize or gluten-free cornflour 30g caster sugar, plus 1 ½ tbsp more for the meringue, plus more for the ramekins soft unsalted butter, for the ramekins 2 egg whites FOR THE ROSE AND RASPBERRY CREAM 150g raspberries 120g double cream 20g caster sugar, or to taste 2 tsp rose water, or to taste

Start with the soufflé. Whisk 25ml of the pomegranate juice into the cornflour. Bring the remaining juice to a boil and reduce to 125ml; it takes around four minutes and you will need to pour it back into the measuring jug to check (don’t worry if it slightly over-reduces). Add the 30g of sugar over the heat and, once it has dissolved, whisk in the cornflour slurry (it will thicken almost immediately). Return to a boil, whisking all the while, then boil for 1–1 ½ minutes. Scrape into a container you can blend in (I use the same measuring jug and my stick blender). Set aside to cool. Meanwhile, butter the ramekins well and dust with sugar, turning the ramekins so they are all well coated and tapping out the excess. Take 50g of the berries, mash well and push through a nylon sieve. Stir into the cream with the sugar and rose water. Fold in the whole raspberries, taste and adjust the sugar and rose water to taste.

Preheat the oven to 180ºC/350ºF/gas mark 4. Whisk the egg whites until they reach soft peaks, sprinkle in the extra 1½ tablespoons sugar and continue whisking until the meringue is glossy and firm. Blend the pomegranate mixture until smooth once more. Place in a large bowl and whisk in around one-quarter of the egg white mix. Then, using a large spoon, carefully fold in the rest, trying to keep the lightness as you incorporate all the little lumps. Do not over-mix. Spoon equally into the ramekins and flatten the tops with a palette knife or other knife. Run the tip of your thumb around the inner rim of the ramekins and place on the middle shelf of the oven. Bake for eight to nine minutes, or until well risen and slightly golden on top. Serve immediately with the rose and raspberry cream. + Makes 4, can be doubled +

Simmer for 3-4 hours, or until the meat starts to fall apart.

Combine salt, pepper and coconut flour in a bowl. One by one lightly coat each osso buco in the flour mixture. Heat half the coconut oil in a heavy based crock pot or large saucepan. Fry off each of the osso bucco pieces in batches, being careful not to crowd the pan, until they have golden brown sides. Remove and set aside.

Add Brown Rice Syrup to balance the salt and Vital Veggie Power for a nutritional boost just before serving. Serve with creamy mash potato or sweet potato, fresh herbs and a hardy red.

Heat the other half of the coconut oil and gently fry off the onions. When nearly translucent, add the garlic and fry for another minute. Add the wine to deglaze the pan. Add the osso bucco back in to the pan along with the tomatoes.

For the bolognese sauce, heat half the oil in a large frying pan over a medium heat. Add the mince and brown, stirring to break up any lumps. Remove from the pan and set aside.

Heat the remaining oil and add the onion, garlic, celery and carrot. Sweat these ingredients down until they are soft and fragrant. Return the mince to the pan along with the tomatoes, tomato paste, wine, bay leaves and thyme giving the mixture a good stir. Cover and simmer for up to an hour, but in the last 10 minutes of cooking remove the lid and let the sauce reduce and thicken.

Add in the pumpkin, sweet potato, garlic and half the stock. Puree until smooth. Place in a pan with the remaining stock and heat through serving with a 1/4 cup of sour cream on top and sprinkled with fresh thyme. + Serves 4 +
