    Easy Sago Pudding Recipe

    Here’s an Easy Sago Pudding Recipe that is gluten-free and flop proof. Sago pudding is made by boiling sago with either water or milk and adding sugar and sometimes additional flavourings.  I decided to make some sago pudding using the sago I bought from The Refillery yesterday.  The basic idea of any sago (from what I researched online) is to cook in milk or water until the beads are transparent. Then, you can either eat right away with butter and sugar or if you add eggs, you can make a pudding. (I choose to make pudding, adapted from this recipe) Keep in mind I was making this up as I went along,…

    Super Easy Chai Spelt Waffles

    These Easy Chai Spelt Waffles are so quick and easy to make, you will never want to buy pre-bought waffles or use a waffle mix again. As I wrote in my last blog post, Spelt flour is an ancient grain that is easier to digest than regular white or whole-wheat flour. Spelt flour contains more protein and vitamin B2 than whole-wheat flour and gives the waffles a yummy nutty flavour. I decided to make the waffles have a spiced chai flavour, after enjoying the previous Chai Spiced Rooibos I had created. Chai Spices For these Easy Chai Spelt Waffles, I made my own chai spice mix consisting of cinnamon, allspice and…

    Lime and Poppy Seed Spelt Loaf

    If you are looking for ways to incorporate spelt flour into your baking, this Lime and Poppy Seed Spelt Loaf is a great place to start. Traditionally, the flavour that we all know from muffins is lemon and poppy seed, but limes are in season at the moment and so I decided to substitute the lemon with lime instead. The flavour the limes gave the Lime & Poppy Seed Spelt Loaf was slightly tart, but still sweet, and I think it helped make it quite a bit more tender during the baking process. What is Spelt Flour? Spelt flour comes from an ancient strain of wheat. It’s high in protein…

    Mother’s Day Quinoa Salad

    This is a healthy recipe for my Mother’s Day Quinoa Salad. This salad combines’ protein-rich red quinoa, soft butternut, sweet cranberries, fresh coriander and pumpkin seeds, all brought together by a balsamic and maple vinaigrette. If you have not tried quinoa before, now is your chance as The Refillery stocks both the original and the red quinoa. Cooking with Red Quinoa Quinoa is naturally gluten-free, high in protein and one of the few plant foods that contain sufficient amounts of all nine essential amino acids. Red quinoa has an earthy and fruity flavour and it retains its shape even after cooking, making it ideal for use in cold salad recipes.…

    Speckled Egg and Cocoa Nib Bark

    So, Easter is around the corner and to celebrate I am making this super delicious Speckled Egg and Cocoa Nib Bark. If you have not ever tried using cocoa nibs, you are seriously missing out! These little nibs not only add an intense chocolate flavour to foods but also a subtle and satisfying crunch. You make think that they are too bitter but you’d be surprised! They have all the benefits of eating dark chocolate, without the added sugar. They are high in fibre, protein, and antioxidants, and contain the same mood-boosting chemicals that make a bar of dark chocolate so satisfying. I am obsessed with them at the moment…
