Ang’s Quinoa and Roast Veggie Salad

A recipe here from a friend of the Beach House Kitchen.  All the way from sunny Auckland (New Zealand that is), Ang floats over some tasty bites over to the Beach House.  WE LOVE ANGx  

I met Ang in Barcelona, where she lived a tofu chuck away from a health food shop.  I needed some ‘health’ after being on the road for too long and eating out of dusty stalls.  Ang cooked up some amazing vegan treats and planted seeds that have now formed the BHK.  

We will be munching this soon and having tasted Ang’s cooking, just know that it will be very, very delicious indeed.  

Cheers AngX:

YUM!

Being a vegetarian on a low-FODMAP foods hasn’t been easy. No beans, chickpeas or lentils are allowed, but thank goodness for the almighty Quinoa.

I made some delicious quinoa and courgette fritters one night last week and had loads of quinoa left over, which resulted in this beast of a salad mixed together in a huge moroccan salad bowl – perfect for parties or BBQ’s.

-Cubed veggies, roasted (potato, pumpkin, carrot, courgette) with fresh rosemary and oregano
-Quinoa
-Baby spinach
-Feta
-Raisins
-Baby tomatoes

Dressing
-lemon juice
-dijon mustard
-basalmic vinegar
-olive oil
-S&P

Salads like this are so hearty and can be adapted in so many ways. Add olives? Avocado? Seeds? Make it your own 🙂

If there are any other friends of the BHK (thats all of you!) who would like to send us a recipe, we would love to hear from you and will most probably, depending on the deliciousness of the dish, put it onto the blog.

Little Bird Raw Food Cafe, Auckland

No I have never been to the Little Bird, but it may be worth the flight.  I am as close to Auckland as I am to Windhoek, but my friend Ang lives in Auckland.  Ang emailed this morning and as usual, got some inspiration twanging.  This is such a magic idea, a raw food non-bakery.  The range of non-baked goodies look like a delight and Im assured that the macadamia macaroons are awesome (they chuffing well sound it).

The Little Bird is definitely a place that reflects our belief about super food and feeding ourselves (and loved ones) only the ‘good stuff’.  The folks at Little Bird offer some great info on their ingredients, many of which you will see used in the BHK regularly.

Non-baked goodies

So heres a link to the Beach House Kitchens new favourite bakery, which we’ll hopefully visit one day.  Until then, I’m sure Ang will help us sample the menu.  If you’re in Auckland, or passing through, heres the address – 385 New North Rd, Kingsland. Ph 550-7377, let us know about those white chocolate truffle things.  Wow!

I feel a raw tart coming on.
