FASOLAKIA now on the blog. 💋Growing up we never appreciated Fasolakia. My mum would tell us that ‘lathera’ (vegetables cooked with oil) was an essential part of the Mediterranean diet and she was totally correct. Greeks eat this as a main meal along with crusty or toasted bread, rice and a big cube of feta. It is meals like this that make humble vegetables taste even more delicious so it is definitely worth a try. Best of all, if you saw my video on Instagram, they are so easy to make and ready in 30 minutes. Oh! And I’ve added the traditional potatoes and carrots to this Fasolakia Casserole but in the past I have added eggplant, zucchini and even sweet potato! Remember to experiment and create in the kitchen. Make this recipe your own. Enjoy x #createcookshare#ipreview#glutenfree#greekfood @preview.app
For those of you looking to replace your morning oatmeal for something healthier.... look no further!! Swap it out for my no-atmeal!
For the base
1 cup steamed cauliflower rice
1/2 smashed banana
3-5T of unsweetened almond milk
For the toppings (the world is your oyster)
Smash a half banana into the bottom of a cereal bowl, add 1 cup of steamed cauliflower rice, and a few tablespoons of unsweetened almond milk. Mix together and microwave for 1 min. Next add any toppings you would normally add to your oatmeal.
I added pomegranate seeds, cinnamon, hemp seeds, chopped walnuts, the other half of the banana sliced, and my home made almond butta!!! P.S. I always steam a big bowl of cauliflower rice at the beginning of the week and just keep it in the fridge for my no-atmeal. That way I can easily just scoop out 1 cup at a time.
