This recipe is one we’ve been really excited to share with you. These carrot and coconut energy balls are honestly the best energy balls or bites I’ve tasted. I tend to keep some in my bag whenever I go out in case I need a boost, so I’ve tried a fair few – both making our own recipes, following others, and purchasing them pre-made.
It’s time for a recipe round-up again! Today, we’re going cook with carrots. They’re a versatile veggie with lots of uses, whether cooked or raw. Here’s 10 recipes using them for you to try!
This soup is full of flavour – the carrot and coriander are both pretty strong, and you can definitely sweeten it up with a bit of maple syrup if you want some extra punch. We served it up with a dollop of creme fraiche and a few rocket leaves on top for a little zing.
This mushroom and swede pie is one of those classic cases where you start off with one thing and end up with another. This pie was originally going to be done to a recipe I had found, but with the one change of taking off the pastry and using mash as a topping instead. Then I realised I didn’t have some of the ingredients. I ordered celeriac, but swede came instead. And after a while, I ended up making something that was totally different to what I intended – but almost certainly better.
We’re officially launching our YouTube channel this week with a shiny new look! Which makes this carrot and coriander soup officially our first big video. We’re so excited to share it with you because it’s really different to the normal soups that we make. It’s actually done to more of a traditional recipe, which is fantastic for those of you who don’t enjoy soup so thick it barely drops from the spoon like we usually make!
We told you a little while back that there would be some changes going forward with our recipes – and we’ve started to make them! This week we’re bringing you the first video post which features our recipes filmed on a DSLR for you to watch.
This one was a lot of fun to make – I love a festive carrot dish, and it was the first thing that we thought of after picking up this cranberry sauce at the Foodies Festival. As you know by now, I’m a soup lover – and in fact Black Friday brought us a new individual blender which we will be showing off next time we get the chance to make smoothies.
We’re all about Sunday lunch at the moment. There’s just something so satisfying about fresh, crunchy vegetables doused in gravy, and combined with fluffy Yorkshire puddings. Then there’s the main event, the piece de resistance – in this case, a delicious carrot and hazelnut loaf. I picked this recipe up from a cookbook I’ve had since my student days, then tweaked it around a bit to my tastes. It’s amazing what you can find in books you’ve had for years!
We’re currently trying to move house (hopefully we’ll have updates on that soon!) and the new place is going to be close by a Waitrose. Basically, this means new hunting grounds for veggie burgers! The first thing we’ve found is the interestingly named Indian spiced bhaji burger. It seems a bit like a contradiction in terms – how can a bhaji also be a burger? – so it was certainly worth a try.
This week’s Hello Fresh dish was a sweet potato and carrot curry, which contained more of the dreaded green beans but did promise goodness with the sweet potato at least. This is a good example of a recipe I would never have tried normally – I hate green beans, carrot always seems a bit boring, and I’ve certainly never heard of a curry that combines the two of them. We gave it a try though – as always!
