Sneaky veg

When I saw this recipe for beetroot flatbreads on the Shivaay Delights blog I knew I had to try it. I was worried that the purple colour would put my two (albeit increasingly less) picky eaters off of trying these and by happy coincidence two lovely golden beetroots arrived in my Local Greens veg bag.

The recipe was really quick and easy, and doesn’t need any rising time as it doesn’t include yeast. I dry fried them and they didn’t stick at all so healthier than frying in oil as well.

Unfortunately Little Miss R, two, used her sixth sense to spot the hidden veg in here and was too suspicious to try them. Mr R, four, however, who is getting less fussy by the day at the moment, *keeping everything crossed it continues*  tucked in though and the natural sweetness of the beetroot won him over.

These are absolutely amazing – the kids loved them AND thought they were being allowed a treat – when in reality they are packed full of goodness. I just wish I’d come up with the recipe myself – this is slightly adapted from the recipe for chocolate snowballs over on the wonderful Shivaay Delights blog.

Chocolate, date and walnut truffle  ingredients sneaky veg photo

Ingredients (makes 9)
100g chopped dates
40 walnuts
50g raisins
1/2 tbsp almond butter
1/2 tbsp cocoa powder
1/2 tbsp sunflower oil
1/2 tbsp maple syrup
35g desiccated coconut

Put all the ingredients apart from the coconut into a food processor and whizz up into a thick paste.

Using a little oil roll out little balls of the mixture with your hands into truffle size. Dip into the coconut and roll around until completely covered.

Chill in the fridge for at least an hour.

Walnut Dark Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Balls

Lori was inspired and now so am I!

I had the choice last night of either bringing a side or a dessert to our small group. My question: is there really any decision that needs to be made?! Dessert any day! 🙂

Yesterday was busy, so I didn’t have a chance to run to the store. You know what that meant…raiding my fridge and pantry and making something out of what I had on hand.

Well, it certainly helped that I had some inspiration…and that inspiration came from Dimple over at Shivaay Delights. She recently made these delicious looking chocolate snowballs (which I do hope to try at some point). Her recipe inspired me to make a ball of yumminess that was low-glycemic and that I didn’t actually have to cook! 🙂 Thanks Dimple!

Zucchini Masala Dosa

Deelightfully Veg adapted my Courgette masala dosa recipe! Looks wonderful! Thank you so much for the mention x

Deelightfully Veg

Zucchini is a variety of summer squash that is shaped like a cucumber and has dark green skin. Sounds boring, right? For me, it turned out to be a brilliant filling used with dosas. It also cut down the carbohydrates and acted as a perfect substitute for the traditional potatoes. This is a great variant on the standard Masala Dosa. Try it out – you may be pleasantly surprised.
