Pasta night: Fusilli with creamy coocnut sauce and mini meatballs








I love pasta! I really, really love it!
We don't eat it very often, but we do I always like to try something new.

This recipe is easy and quick. 

For 4 portions you will need

400ml full-fat coconut milk
coconut oil for frying
1 onion
3 cloves of garlic (minced)
spices ( salt, black pepper, cayenne)
200g mushrooms of your choice ( I used chanterelles) 
fresh parsley
1 egg
250g uncooked pasta
200g good quality organic mince beef/ chicken/ pork/ turkey/ lamb


Method

1. On the pan heat, 3 tbs of coconut oil, chop onions and fry them until gold. Also if you decide to use regular mushrooms, fry them together with the onions. If you use chanterelles like me, wash them and cook them for 15min. Cook your pasta up to your liking.
2. To make the sauce. Add coconut milk to onions and mushrooms, add spices and cook on medium heat.
3. To make mini meatballs, mix the meat with one egg, salt, black pepper and one clove of fresh garlic. Roll small balls and fry them with 2tbs coconut oil. 
4. Add half of fried meatballs and the rest of minced garlic to the coconut sauce. Cook on high heat for another 10min (mixing time to time). 
5. Serve with fresh parsley and the rest of mini meatballs.

Coconut macaroons, perfect dessert in 20min







Coconut macaroons, the best in the world. Crispy on the outside soft in the middle.

Quick to make and only 3 ingredients ( well do be honest 2 would work too).



Coconut macaroons are one of my favorite childhood cookies to make, and they’re my easiest baked dessert to make when I have my friends over. 

You can use either sweetened or unsweetened coconut, I used unsweetened.
These are 100% better than the store bought ones, they don't have any sugar ( only the natural one), no additives, no preservatives. Anyone can make them, and they will always work perfectly.

So, here is the list of what you need to make batch of coconut macaroons:

3 egg whites
2-3 cups of desiccated coconut
pinch of salt, I use Himalayan salt
Method:


1. Beat the egg whites with a pinch of salt until stiff.
2. Add the coconut and mix gently.
3. On a plate lined with baking paper spoon coconut mix ( I use an icecream scoop).
4. Bake in preheated oven to 170C for around 15min ( or until the macaroons will start getting golden brown).






Kochani dzis wam przynosze jeden z moich ulubionych deserow z dziecinstwa.

Indigo Nutrition Organic chocolate mix review + recipe


Today I am bringing you chocolate to kill that Monday blues. 

As you might remember I made chocolates so many times and so many different varieties that when Indigo Nutrition asked me if I want to try their products I was very excited.

A raw chocolate starter kit is very good for all of you who wants to learn how to make that perfect batch of chocolates.

The kit comes with comes with a recipe, cacao powder, cacao butter, agave syrup, vanilla powder all raw and organic. products A 300g pack costs £12.99 and 750g £23.99. You just have to follow the instruction and voila, your chocolate will be ready in no time. 








The consistency of the mix is a little bit to thick for my liking if you want to make small pralines but works great as chocolate slab. 





I would suggest to use only 1/2 agave syrup if you are not the biggest fan of very sweet chocolate.

In overall, this product is great for everyone who wants to start with making their own healthy chocolates.

You can add toppings of your choice ( like I did) and enjoy it.

Pasta with home made tomato sauce and goat cheese GF


Do you like spaghetti?

Spaghetti with home made tomato sauce  is a classic combination, the base of pasta dishes, the easiest, yet the most delicious. Tomato sauce and pasta is definitely a good combination, plus you can create so many amazing varieties using only very few simple ingredients.
My recipe involves gluten free pasta as you might remember I try to eat as little products with gluten as possible. 
Over the past months, I tried so much gluten-free pasta of different companies, and Rizopia is definitely on the top of my list.

My tomato sauce doesn't involve many ingredients, this is why it comes handy when you need something quickly.

Ingredients for 4 servings

5-6 ripe organic tomatoes
3 cloves garlic
2 tbsp coconut oil or ghee
salt and black pepper to taste
pinch of sweet paprica
pinch of coconut sugar ( you can skip this)
goat cheese 
a handful of uncooking gluten-free spaghetti pasta (cook to your liking)

favourite herbs for garnish - me basil, thyme, oregano

1. Cut a small “X” on each tomato.  Drop them into boiling hot water and leave it  for approximately 3-5 min.
2. On the pan melt coconut oil, and fry garlic until golden on medium heat.
3. Peel the skin from the tomatoes, cut into small pieces and add to oil.
4. Fry it on medium  heat for 30min, half way add spices and sugar.
5. Boil your favourite pasta.
6. You can serve imminently or strain it first if you prefer a smooth sauce, crumble goat cheese on top.
