Vegan ‘Pulled Pork’ burgers

UMMMMMM. So this is one of the most tasty things to have ever touched my tongue.

I’ve had vegan pulled pork burgers a couple of times now while eating out, so I decided it was time to make it at home.

61363BC3-A5D3-4AA3-87D0-3196CBF69269.jpg

The key ingredient in this recipe is Jack Fruit. Though not grown here in NZ, you can find it canned in your local whole food store. If you are in the Palmerston North area I recommend Davis trading, at only $2 a can, it’s a super cheap and tasty meal!

6510ECAE-2EE2-4B19-BE33-8099C330A2F7.jpg

This recipe makes enough for about 6-8 burgers depending on how much of the mixture you add to each bun.

Ingredients

2 Tins of jackfruit
1 tsp onion powder
2 tbsp coconut sugar
1/2 tsp chilli powder
1 tsp salt
1 tsp pepper
1 cup BBQ sauce
1 tsp liquid smoke (optional)

E45CB8AC-5E9E-40D7-AFC5-EB6BE06D3976.jpg

Method

  1. Drain the two tins of jackfruit and cut out the core.
  2. Mix together all of the dry ingredients and combine with the jackfruit.
  3. Add the seasoned jackfruit mixture to a pan and cook for a few minutes before adding the BBQ sauce and liquid smoke.
  4. Once all ingredients have been added, let the mixture simmer for at least 20 mins, longer if you want the flavour to develop more.
  5. Serve on a fresh bun with plenty of salad, and avocado! I used watercress, red onion and avo on a ciabatta bun and it was amazing!

The texture of jackfruit is so similar to pulled pork it’s insane, so this would be a good one to serve up to your unsuspecting meat eating friends!

Happy meat free Monday everyone, I hope you have an amazing week!

Matcha Cheesecake

Happy Monday everyone!

I have collaborated with Matcha Matcha New Zealand, to make this amazing creamy cheesecake.

E20AC48E-3AB4-4F66-B383-935AF5E2BF80

Matcha is finely ground powder from green tea. It’s packed full of antioxidants, vitamin C, selenium, chromium, zinc, finer chlorophyll and more. Including it into your daily diet can have an array of benefits including:

  • Boosts metabolism and burns calories
  • Detoxifies effectively and naturally
  • Calms the mind and relaxes the body
  • Enhances mood and aids in concentration
  • Prevents disease
  • Lowers cholesterol and blood sugar

I’ve tried to make this recipe as simple as possible, so that you can make it easily at home without having to go and buy every single ingredient on the the list. Raw cheesecakes are a nice treat to have that don’t weigh you down and leave you feeling lethargic and bloated.

CF5B4764-E6FF-4540-9B83-2FA1DC8B0714

Ingredients:

Base:
1/2 cup almonds
1/2 cup buckwheat
1/4 cup coconut
10 medjool dates

Filling:
1 cup cashews (soaked for 4 hours or overnight)
2 heaped tsp of Matcha powder
1/3 cup maple syrup or coconut sugar
1/2 cup coconut oil (melted)
1/2 cup almond milk

Topping:
Dairy free chocolate
Coconut chips
Cacao nibs

Method:

1. Line a baking tray with baking paper.
2. Pulse the dry ingredients for the base in a blender until crumbly. Add the dates and continue to pulse until combined.
3. Press the base into the tin evenly, it shouldn’t be too crumbly, but it shouldn’t be too sticky either. If it’s slightly crumbly add a couple more dates, if its too sticky add a bit more coconut.
4. In a blender, add all of the filling ingredients and blend until smooth and creamy.
5. Poor the filling onto the base and set in freezer for atleast 4 hours.
6. Once set, slice into individual pieces and decorate as desired. You can decorate it as one whole piece too.

I hope you enjoy this really simple recipe! Let me know if you re create it by tagging me on instagram @brooklyngreenfield, I’d love to see your creations! And check out @matchamatchanz on instagram for more information on their amazing matcha tea selection.

Chocolate Hazelnut Mudcake

 

It’s been a while..

Birthdays always call for cake. And my other half turned 23, so of course I used this as an excuse to do some vegan baking, even had my own assistant to make it (thanks Ellen!)

2E2627B8-B0BF-45B7-B38C-9A5C66E6D70B

This is one of the richest chocolate mud cakes i’ve ever had. If the fact that this cake is rich, gooey and harming no animals, isn’t enough to convince you to make it, then hopefully the fact that it tastes like Nutella, is. A++

This recipe was inspired by The Minimalist Baker, and my love for chocolate.. if you didn’t already know I’m obsessed, as you can see here.

  9. Mix the hazelnuts and coconut sugar for the topping together and transfer onto a lined baking tray to roast while the cake is cooking. (about 10 minutes)

Heavenly Chocolate Brownie Cookies

Hi guys! 😊

I was craving something chocolate flavoured the other day and I looked at the ingredients in my cupboard and decided I would make some cookies (extreme chocolate brownie version of course.

b1a8037b-9f19-4f48-933f-e41720da2a48

These aren’t the healthiest of cookies but they’re definitely better than anything you’re going to find in your local supermarket. No refined sugars, dairy or eggs. Like any treats you should always eat in moderation, though i warn you.. these are hard to resist and extremely delicious it may be hard to have any sort of portion control.

a7cac6da-a02f-4d47-b014-ee907af518f5

I freestyled this recipe completely from scratch and took rough measurements. When making a cookie dough you want it too be not wet but not crumbly and dry, so somewhere in between. If you find it’s slightly dry, add a dash of almond milk.

Prep time for these cookies is honestly about 10 minutes and its a matter of chucking everything together! It makes about 12 decent size cookies and a few little babies on the side 🙂

b855bba0-1fa9-45c2-93f4-aa5379d64ee6

Ingredients:

  • 2 Cups Spelt flour 
  • 3/4 cup cacao powder
  • 1/4 cup carob powder
  • 1tsp baking soda
  • 1 ⅓ cup coconut sugar
  • 3/4 cup coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup almond milk
  • 2 flax eggs (2 tbsp flax meal soaked in ¼ cup water for 5-10 minutes)

 

Method:

  1. Preset oven to 180•c and like a baking tray with parchment paper.
  2. Mix together flax egg mixture and set aside.
  3. Add coconut oil and coconut sugar to a bowl. Microwave the mixture for 10 seconds then combine together.
  4. Add all of the dry ingredients to a bowl and combine.
  5. Add in the coconut sugar and oil mixture, along with the flax egg mixture and combine.
  6. Roll the mixture into whatever sized cookies you want, and press flat onto the baking tray. I had to do my cookies in two batches of 6 because my tray wasn’t big enough.
  7. Bake for about 10 minutes. Keep an eye on them to make sure they don’t burn. When you first take them out they will be quite soft still but will harden as they cool down.

34818bbe-0695-4e98-b47f-a0663fc7a178

These cookies are honestly so delicious!!! My boyfriend pretty much ate the entire batch overnight so that’s saying something!

Let me know if you give these a try and what you think of them!
