stepheusebi.com Cheesecake! And homemade nut butters!

ImageI had a go at a dessert! Now readers… I’m no chef… This whole experience for me is about being healthy… Happy and cruelty free! I liked meals I can make it no longer than 15mins and people would rave about the taste. So I had a true Aussie go… And gave this ‘Guilt Free Nutella Cheesecake’ a shot! You can find the recipe over at stepheusebi.Com/guilt-free-nutella-cheesecake/

I couldn’t find any hazelnut butter at the shops! So I decided to make my own! Remember I told you to buy a food processor? Go and do it now…!…. I’ll wait…. You got one? Good! Because to make a nut butter all you do is put a cup of a skinless nut of your choice into the food processor and blend until the nuts turn into liquid! Took me about 7 mins and this is the result! I’m going to start making my own nut butters from now on!

Super easy burritos!

So just decided to get a bit creative… Didn’t have much in the fridge… Not much in the cupboard. I noticed I had a cucumber and half a capsicum… So I thought let’s do an awesome burrito! Big problem… No wraps!… No worries! Lettuce wraps!

 Lettuce Wrap Burrito

Ingredients

  • 1/2 capsicum roughly chopped
  • 1 garlic clove crushed
  • 1 onion diced
  • Coconut oil
  • Can red kidney beans (other beans work)
  • Jalapeno peppers as many as you can like
  • 2 cups cooked rice (I used brown)
  • 1/2 teaspoon of cummin
  • 1/2 teaspoon of coriander
  • 1/2 cucumber
  • Lettuce leaves for serving

Method

In a frying pan, heat a spoon of coconut oil! Add the onion, Jalapenos, garlic and capsicum and cook for about 2 minutes on high heat. Add the beans (drained) and the cooked rice. Stir in the spices and cook for a further 3 minutes! Spoon into lettuce leaves and top with cucumber.

Bloody easy! And just thrown together! Of course if you have wraps, or tacos you can substitute for the lettuce leaves… But they really made them quite fresh! let me know in the comments below how you went and if you changed anything

Eat more Avos! try my not-quite-guac!

I’m a sucker for avocados.. It’s funny, I never was.. eating something green and with that oily texture really put me off… But now, one of my favorite things is a bit of Vegemite, on some homemade sourdough with avocado (don’t forget the pink salt!). One thing I have been doing lately is making a heap of avocado spread (not-quite-guac) and adding it to many of my meals to give me those good oils!

Super simple my friends! if you don’t have a food processor buy one! seriously… I make whole meals in these things in less than 1 minute! in fact, I want to put together a bunch of my favorite 30 second recipes! starting with this one!

Not quite guac

Ingredients

  • 3 ripe avocados
  • 1 garlic clove
  •  Juice of 1 lemon (debatable, I use more, but friends who use my recipe add less, start with 1 lemon and adjust id like some feedback on this)
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper (optional)
  • 1 teaspoon pink salt

Method

Throw all ingredients into the food processor and whip it up! you might have to scrape down the sides 10 seconds in! but this whole process should take 20 seconds! you this for chips, spreads, wraps, salads! seriously… use it everywhere!
