Maple Peach Brown Rice Pudding

Need new inspiration for breakfast, late-afternoon snack, or dessert? Look no further than here!!!

This is quick, healthy and delish.

Fruit is my favourite food on earth. If I could I would have it for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Although as a dietitian and a foodie, I feel it is my duty to try other foods as well…*sigh*…tough life! But today I didn’t feel any such obligation when I started to think about my afternoon snack.

I let my love of fruit guide me to the way of a Maple Peach Brown Rice Pudding! Even if you don’t love fruit…you will love this!

 

Maple Peach Brown Rice Pudding
Ingredients
½ cup cooked brown rice
¼ cup coconut cream*
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
1 peach
Maple syrup to taste – I used 1 tsp

Combine all ingredients and ¾ of the peach in a blender and blend until smooth. Serve with remaining peach and a drizzle of maple syrup.

*for low fat version use reduced fat coconut milk/soy/almond/oat milk instead.     

If you feel you want something creamy and luscious on top…I recommend this vegan cream recipe! It’s the perfect accompaniment!

This pudding is also great for our vegan friends and those that need a gluten-free, dairy-free, nut-free or soy-free option!

Sweet sweet potato bites

I don’t like to eat the same thing for lunch everyday. Salads can be nice – but not if it is the same day in day out. Also, why would you have the same thing everyday if there are a bizillion combinations out there for yummy lunches!? I don’t.

That is why when I opened the fridge today, I looked at my leftovers for inspiration. I dreamed up a rather satifying and absolutely delicious feast from some left-over baked sweet potato I had in the fridge! And then I made it…

Sweet Sweet Potato Bites

Ingredients:

1 large sweet potato
1/2 mashed avocado seasoned with salt & pepper
Mustard
Caramelised Onions
Sundried tomato
Hommus
Lemon

Method:

Pre-heat oven to 200 degrees celcuis. Wash the sweet potato and place whole onto baking tray and bake for around 30-40mins depending on the size of your sweet potato. Before you take it out you can prick with a scure/fork to feel if the inside is completely soft. Allow to cool.

Cut sweet potato into slices an top with these combinations:

1. Mashed avocado, mustard and sundried tomato
2. Mashed avocado and caramelised onion
3. Mashed avocado and hommus

Finish with a squeeze of lemon and garnish with greens. Voilla!
