Ingredients

  • 4 frozen bananas*
  • 2 teaspoons matcha powder

Place the bananas in a blender or food processor. Process until the bananas start to break down. Add the matcha powder and the milk, and blend until completely smooth.

*To freeze bananas to make nicecream,  start with really ripe bananas. Break them up in chunks and place the chunks in a freezer-grade ziptop bag. I always have 3-4 large ziptop bags in my freezer loaded with bananas, ready for nicecream.

Toasted Nuts and Seeds Mix

Toasted Nuts and Seeds Mix
Toasted Nuts and Seeds Mix

This Toasted Nuts and Seeds mix makes its way into my dishes on many occasions. I don’t have to discuss the importance of nuts in a plant-based diet, but know that nuts are high in essential amino acids and healthy fats. Eating nuts and seeds is a great way to add vitamins, minerals, fiber, and essential fatty acids (like omega-3 and omega-6), to your diet. They are used, for example, to top my Indian Spiced Parsnip Soup, but I also sprinkle this mix on top of my morning oatmeal, on salads, and we eat them just like that too as an easy snack. It’s easy and it’ll add some crunch and nutrients to your diet.

Medley de noix et de graines

J’ajoute souvent des épices à mon medley de noix, juste avant de retirer du feu. Vous pouvez essayer du garam masala ou ce mélange d’épices jerk. Utilisez toujours des noix brutes, non-rôties.

Ingredients

  • Noix de cajou
  • Arachides
  • Amandes ciselées
  • Pistaches
  • Noix de pin
  • Graines de citrouille

Instructions

Réchauffer une petite poêle à feu moyen. Lorsque la poêle est chaude, ajouter les plus grosses noix, comme les noix de cajou et les pistaches.

Continuer de rôtir, en remuant, jusqu’à ce que toutes les noix et graines soient dorées. Ajouter les assaisonnements, si désiré.
