Prawns may look puny but they pack a serious protein punch. They are also rich in iron. So mix up your protein source and try these delicious prawn skewers.
Garlic Prawn Skewers
2 Tablespoons Olive Oil + 1 extra for cooking
2 Garlic Cloves, finely chopped
Lime & Coriander Dressing
A small handful of Coriander
A small handful of Parsley
2 Garlic Cloves, chopped
Zest and juice of 1 Lime
1/2 Tablespoon Manuka Honey
¼ Cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Place the garlic and 2 Tbsp of olive oil in a bowl, add in the prawns and mix together. Cover and leave to marinate in the refrigerator for 2 hours.
Place the coriander, parsley, garlic, lime juice and zest, honey and extra virgin olive oil into a blender, and blend until well combined. Set aside while you cook the prawns.
Thread the marinated prawns onto the skewers and place to one side. Heat the remaining olive oil in a heavy based pan over a medium heat, place the prawn skewers into the pan and cook for approximately 1-2 minutes on each side, or until golden.
Serve with salad leaves, lime wedges and the lime and coriander dressing.
This recipe is so healthy that it kind of hurts... my sweet tooth because I ate SO many of these dang things! I can never quite justify buying or eating Oreo's despite their supposedly 'vegan' status because they contain non-sustainable palm oil and I'm not about deforestation and destruction of valuable habitat for hundreds of animals. No thank you! These are fudgey, chocolate-y, nourishing, and full of amazing raw and activated ingredients from Little Bird Organics' Pantry Staples range. Yum! However, if you leap into this recipe expecting it to taste just like a baked, white-sugar-laden, refined cookie then you will be sorely disappointed. This is more like a raw dessert in the shape of a tasty Oreo cookie - inspired loosely, if you will.
Whip this muesli up to share with your dad for brunch. I also rate muesli as a good snack idea too in the afternoon sometimes. It can save me from hitting those sugary snacks. I pair this with coconut yoghurt and blueberries. It’s great for satiety levels (you know, that all important “fullness factor”).
The holiday season can be a tricky time of year for those of us trying to stick to our diet goals. These chocolate truffles are packed with the natural goodness of nuts and seeds and sweetened with dates, making them the perfect, healthy contribution to any party spread or even just a delicious mid-afternoon pick-me-up.
