Spinach and Wheatgrass Crêpes + Win Indigo Herbs Superfood Goodies

Ever feel like your inner cogs are all out of sync? Whether its you health, plans or just general mood not lining up? I felt like that a lot last year, especially towards then end of the year when I was out of work for a while. I lost all sense of routine and lost a bit of myself along the way. I doubted myself, my body and my brain. It wasn’t obvious something was wrong, until now. This year, something has clicked already. Like all my cogs are in sync and I can just chill. My body feels good, my head feels good, and my heart is bursting. A happiness wave has washed over me, and I hope it’s gonna stay high tide for a while.

Needing a little pick me up? Wanna shake up your pancake repertoire? Look no further, these green machines are the perfect lunchtime boost. They’re packed with spinach, wholesome buckwheat flour, and a hint of wheatgrass.

We’re talking:

Crepes

I love wheatgrass, adding it into smoothies, mixing it into oats, or using in crêpes! It’s a powerful taste, so go steady if you haven’t used it before, you can start by added 1/4 teaspoon, and build it up slowly up to 1 teaspoon. It’s an acquired taste at first, but now I can’t get enough of it.

I love this one.

Fancy bagging yourself a tasty selection of wheatgrass powder, protein powders and more? I’ve got something exciting for one lucky reader! I’ve teamed up with Indigo Herbs and we’re giving away some goodies (see the photo below!) I have been a long time fan of the lovely Indigo Herb gang, and they’ve recently re-vamped all their packaging, which I think looks all kinds of awesome!

Spinach and Wheatgrass Crêpes (gf) (v)

INGREDIENTS:

Large handful spinach
1¼ cups (175g) buckwheat flour
¼ to ½ teaspoon wheatgrass powder
1 tablespoon ground flax
2 cups (500ml) nut milk
1 tablespoon melted coconut oil

 

METHOD

Put all ingredients into a blender and blitz until smooth.

Leave the mixture to rest for 30 mins, this will help it hold together when you come to cook them.

Heat some coconut oil in a frying pan, when hot, ladel a spoonful of the mix into the pan. Cook for 1 minutes, and flip and then cook the other side for 45 seconds. Repeat this with all the mix.

You can keep them warm on a plate in a warm oven until you have cooked all the mixture.

Winter Salad with Garlic Beans

I wonder if the snow loves the trees and fields, that it kisses them so gently? And then it covers them up snug, you know, with a white quilt; and perhaps it says “Go to sleep, darlings, till the summer comes again.”

Some people turn to comfort foods in winter. Hearty stews, pies and baked dishes. Me? I turn to salads. I need to be reminded of warmer, lighter days in the depths of winter. Nothing does that better (well, other than a rare warm sunny day) than the taste, colours and texture of a vibrant salad. Salads remind me that summer is only just around the corner, a few months away. That these cold nights and frosty mornings will soon subside.

I discovered this wonderful dressing a while back while having a read of one of my favourite blogs. Laura cooks with colour and vibrance and her creations are just gorgeous. This dressing reminds me of sunshine.

These garlic butter beans keep this salad hearty and have a creamy texture that pairs beautifully with the crunch from the fennel and carrot.

180g cooked quinoa
Handful spinach
1 carrot (grated)
¼ fennel

METHOD

Get all your ingredients ready.

To make the garlic beans:
Add beans, oil, tahini, lemon juice and S+P into a bowl. Crush a garlic clove and add it in.
Use a fork to roughly mash the mix. Don’t over mash. You want to see some beans whole, and some squished.

Slice the fennel into small slithers, keeping fronds to scatter on top.

Arrange the quinoa, spinach, carrot in a bowl. Add the beans and drizzle with goji dressing.
