Vegan Gluten Free Jalapeno Poppers

Fresh Jalapeno chillies
Tofutti better than cream cheese
Besan/chickpea  flour
White pepper/Chilli powder
Slit fresh jalapeno peppers down the side
Stuff the pepper with tofutti better than cream cheese (you can add other flavours to the cream cheese eg.  dairy cheese; herbs, bacon, etc)
Make a thick paste with the besan flour. If the paste is too thin, it won’t coat the glossy chilli!
Add salt and pepper or a pinch of chilli powder to the paste.
Dip stuffed jalapenos into batter, coat well and then deep fry.
Nb. I have tried using soy milk and almond meal to coat the can be done but it’s a bit tricky! It’s an option if you don’t enjoy the taste of besan flour.

Vegan Guacamole

Fantastic, relatively healthy quick-n-easy dip – great to get your omega’s while being a little bit naughty J

Lemon juice
White Pepper
Tofutti supreme sour

Mash 3 x Avocado

Add  teaspoon lemon juice
Salt and white pepper to taste
4 drops of Tabasco (or more to your taste)
Mix thoroughly

Then add 2 tablespoons of Tofutti supreme sour cream (or more to your taste)

Optional Extra:Stir through one more avocado that has been cubed to add texture!

I very rarely drink coffee....and today I have had a rather strong one for the second day in a row.
I have been on a rollercoaster of manic highs with nervous energy and aggression and depressive lows with lethargy and exhaustion...
I can see the appeal – I feel like I can take on the world when the high hits. I can zoom through all of my work and be as sharp as a tack, on the ball and very, very motivated.  However, as a diabetic, the crazy blood sugar level swings will end up killing me! Bottom line, I ought to continue saving coffee for special occasions – my liver will thank me JJ
This experience gives me a brilliant insight into the damage caused by this innocent beverage to people’s bodies and minds. As my liver is fairly overloaded, I imagine that my reaction in amplified compared to most. I still believe though that regular consumption of coffee alters hormones and other bodily functions in a very negative way.

Curry in a hurry - tamato base for Indian curries

I like to prepare this curry base and freeze it in portions, making it very easy to put together an Indian lentil/bean curry in a hurry! I usually make double or more of this recipe.
Heat a heavy-based saucepan, add 2 tablespoons of oil.
Fry ½ teaspoon of mustard seeds, as soon as they start popping, add sliced onion (½ medium sized)
When the onion is translucent/clear add your spices:
½ teaspoon red chilli powder
¼ teaspoon turmeric powder
½ teaspoon cumin powder
¼ teaspoon coriander powder
and a pinch of cinnamon
Allow the spices to fry in the oil for a minute.
Then add your tomatoes. These can be chopped fresh (3 large) or canned* (1-2 cans of whole/diced) which when cooked you can blend with a stick blender to puree.
I also add ½ teaspoon of ginger paste and the same of garlic paste (ground fresh is best tho!)
I allow the tomatoes to cook for 10-15minutes and then blend them into a sauce which I simmer for another 5-10minutes.
At the start of the recipe before you add the onion; you have the option of adding fresh curry leaves (available from Indian stores or good grocers) for a more authentic flavour and dry red whole chillies if you like spicy food.
Once cooled, I freeze this base in portions (½ can of tomato per portion). When in a super hurry, I just add one portion to a can of beans or lentils; cook for 15minutes and garnish with coriander.  

* Processed tomatoes have higher levels of lycopene, which is an antioxidant, in them.
All these ingredients can be found instore, alternatively, I can make up a package with the ingredients and exact measurements for this recipe

At Allergy Free Wholefood we sell gluten free flours and grains, sugar substitutes, dairy free foods and we try to keep healthy-living affordable for everybody by stocking non-organic options.
