Honey Chicken and Broccoli Stir fry
Honey Chicken and Broccoli Stir fry
Hey you guys, another delicious recipe to hit all your meal prep neeeeeds! Honey chicken, broccoli, beans and rice... SO EASY! I used frozen broccoli and beans in this stirfry because I find when they're not in season. they're either super expensive or not the best quality, so I love using frozen instead! I used OOB organic broccoli florets and beans that are perfect for a recipe like this.    Serves: 2Cook time: 20 minutes Prep time: 15 minutes Ingredients: 1 brown onion, diced finely 1 cup OOB organic frozen broccoli, thawed 1 cup OOB organic frozen beans, thawed 1 medium chicken breast, sliced into strips1 cup brown rice, cooked Fresh coriander, for garnish Olive oil, for cooking Dressing: 1 garlic clove, crushed 2 teaspoons honey or maple4 tablespoons soy sauce2 teaspoons sesame oil 1-2 teaspoons chilli garlic paste (more if you like spice!) Lemon juice, to taste 1 long red chilli, diced finelyDirections: In a small bowl, mix together the dressing ingredients and set aside Add sliced chicken into a bowl and pour over half the dressing. Mix well, leave to marinate for 1 hour or overnight if you have the time.  In a small wok, heat a small splash of olive oil over medium high heat. Add chicken and cook for 5-7 minutes or until cooked through. Remove chicken from pan and add broccoli and beans. These should only take a few minutes to cook if they're already thawed, but cook to your liking.  Add rice and chicken into the pan and heat through. Pour over the remaining dressing and stir, coating it well all over.  Serve hot, garnishing with coriander.  Thank you OOB organic for supplying these delicious frozen veggies! I think I'm set for life with my freezer right now haha! Hope you love this recipe.  Love, Leah x

Banana & Raspberry Waffles
YUM! You've been waiting for this recipe since I did this on my stories the other day hehe they are DELISH! @woolworths_au challenged me to get creative with their Macro Green Banana Flour and I thought...easy peasy way to get some gluten free pancakes or waffles into our lives! This Green Banana Flour has a super lovely story too - the pioneers from Queensland first got the idea when they noticed the number of bananas going to waste, so they created this banana flour which is PERFECT for gluten free baking! Banana growers now have another market place for their produce and we get all the good stuff!! If you do need a good gluten free swap for flour in your baking - this is a great option for you! I made these waffles with super simple ingredients, but add your own flavours & toppings as you like - YUM!  Makes: 2 large waffles Cook time: 10 minutes Ingredients: 2 medium bananas, mashed 1/2 cup raspberries (more for topping!)2 tablespoons desiccated coconut Pinch of cinnamon 1 tsp GF baking powder2 tablespoons coconut oil  2 tablespoons maple syrup 1/2 cup Macro Green Banana Flour (1/4 more if needed)Toppings: Maple syrup Raspberries Directions:  Add all ingredients into a bowl and mix well.  Ensure to pre-heat your waffle maker so it's hot before you put the batter in.  Add 1/2 the batter into the waffle maker and cook for 10 minutes or until crispy.  Remove, cut and the top with delicious maple and extra berries!

SIMPLE SWAPS 🌟 How good are @Woolworths_au Macro Organic Chickpeas?

You can throw them in straight from the can for ease, or you can toast some in a pan with a few spices to heat through. 🌟 You’ll find them waiting for you on the shelf down the canned goods aisle (haha my old Woolworths self knows that’s aisle 6 on the left but who remembers that?? 🤣) Either way - make the swap and you’ll thank me later hehe!! #MacroWholefoodsMarket  Serves: 2Prep Time: Cook Time: Ingredients: 1 can Macro Organic chickpeas, drained and rinsed  4-5 cherry tomatoes, halved 1 lebanese cucumber, sliced into rounds ½ red onion, sliced 4cm feta cheese, crumbled Drizzle of Olive oil Lemon juice, to taste Pinch of SaltPinch of Dried mint 4-6 kalamata olives Small handful rocket Directions: 1.
