Press Patties

OMG. Game-changing breakfast recipe. Goodbye toast, hello press patties!! Just make up a batch of ‘dough’, add whatever grated or finely chopped veggies you have in the fridge & sandwich press some patties! They can be made in batches & stored in the fridge or freezer – perfect for hot breakfast or for protein in the lunchboxes, even a quick reheat for dinner.

Ingredients

  • 1x 400g BixMix bag
  • 200ml water
  • 50ml oil
  • grated sweet potato (use a little or a lot). My fave ratio is 400g sweet potato: 400g dry Bixmix.

Method

  1. Empty BixMix into a large mixing bowl
  2. Add 200ml of water, mix well & leave to thicken (overnight or at least a few hours)
  3. Grate sweet potato into mixture, add oil & work through with clean hands
  4. Grab a handful of dough, shape into a rough ball & place onto an oiled sandwich press.
  5. Press down and cook for 3-4 mins or until nicely browned. (Press down firmly for a thinner / crispier patty & more gently for a thicker, softer patty).
  6. Remove from the heat, top with avocado, tomato & sliced onion, a squeeze of lemon & salt & pepper.

Serves Approx

Makes a varied amount of patties depending on how much grated veg you add. But a 400g packet with no veggies added will make 10 good sized patties. If you add veggies at a 1:1 ratio you should make approx 20 patties. Think pumpkin, corn, carrot, zucchini, peas, broccoli, cauliflower…

 

Healthy Hot Cross Buns

Love the hot cross bun flavours, hate the gluten, refined carbs, crappy fats & artificial ingredients that they’re full of. Here’s my version – these are made with Blend11 so are high in protein, fibre, good fats…nutritionally worthwhile eating as well as satisfying your Easter spice & fruit peel cravings!

Ingredients

50g Almond Meal
20g Psyllium Husk
100g Coconut Flour
80g Currants
3 teaspoons of Cinnamon
1 teaspoon of Nutmeg
1 teaspoon of Allspice
Zest & juice of 3 Oranges
2 cups of Blend11 (soaked overnight prior)
3 tablespoons of Coconut Oil
Optional: Maple Syrup to glaze

For the chocolate crosses:
Your fave chocolate, melted in a double pot so as not to burn.
Coconut flour (just mix in with melted choc to thicken it, enough to make a consistency you can work with easily & hold shape).

Method

  1. Add all dry ingredients into a bowl
  2. Squeeze oranges & add juice & coconut oil
  3. Add Blend11
  4. Squeeze the mixture together with clean hands until well combined & all dry ingredients are moistened. You should have a ‘dough’ like consistency.
  5. Shape into small balls (approx 4cm diameter).
  6. Place on a baking tray (mix should make about 12 little buns)
  7. Glaze by brushing with a little maple syrup if you like (not necessary but adds sweetness)
  8. Use the melted chocolate + coconut flour mixture to make crosses. I used my hands, but better / much neater results if you have any ‘icing’ equipment to load the choc into & squeeze out!
  9. Bake in a slow oven (170 degrees) for approx 1.5 hrs (check a bun to see if the inside has gone from ‘gluey’ to drier / just moist & ‘bready’.

Serves Approx

12 small (but very filling, nutritious & delicious) buns!

Rum Ball Christmas Tree

rum ball christmas tree | goodMix Superfoods

Feast your eyes with this Rum Ball Christmas Tree recipe that is oozing with yumminess and will surely be a hit to kids and definitely adults!

This was so much fun to make! So pretty & a practical & healthy dessert that also adds some seriously festive vibes to your table!

Rum Ball Christmas Tree Ingredients

2 x 750g Vegan BallBags protein ball mix (for a big tree to feed loads of people)
1.5 cups currants
1 cup raisins
1/2 cup of rum or to taste
2 dessert spoons of mixed spice
120g coconut oil
200g block of dark chocolate for ‘glue’
Dessicated coconut for rolling your balls in
Raw Cacao or white chocolate buttons
Handful of hazelnuts, bunch of mint  (optional / decoration round the base)
1 punnet each of raspberries, strawberries & blueberries, a bunch of small red grapes, 1 cherry for the top!

Method

Method

1.Pour rum & mixed spice over your currants & raisins, mixing through well then leave covered in a large bowl to soak overnight.
2.Next day, add BallBag mix & coconut oil into the bowl; mix well, squeezing mix together with clean hands until well combined.
3.Shape mix into balls, a few different sizes (i.e. lots of bigger ones for the lower layers, then less medium sized & even fewer small ones, plus a few teeny tiny ones for the top of the tree. You’ll need to work out quantities based on the size of your planned tree (see next step). Set balls aside in the freezer until ready to construct your tree!
4.Make a cone using some cardboard, that sits nicely on top of an upturned bowl (or just a larger cone sitting directly on a plate should also work fine). Ensure that your cone is small enough that you can fully cover it with balls, leaving only small gaps.
5.Melt your dark chocolate into ‘glue’. This will be used to stick all your fresh berries to the tree, as well as glueing the balls into place.
6.Centre the bowl / cone on a plate.
7.Dollop / drizzle some melted chocolate around the bowl, so that your first layer of balls can be ‘glued’ into place by pressing them into the melted choc circle.
8.Arrange your first layer of balls on the choccy glue.
9.Place a little choccy glue onto the top (slightly towards the inner side) of the ball circle, & press your 2nd layer of balls onto the glue (leaning against the bowl / cone for support).
10. Continue layering your balls against the cone to cover it, using slightly smaller balls as you add more levels – so the balls are biggest at the bottom, smallest at the top, & your cone is covered (there may be gaps, that’s fine – you’ll fill those with berries).
11. Place tree in the fridge to ‘set’ the glue.
12. Dip cold fresh berries into your leftover choccy glue, then press them gently but firmly into any gaps (glue them so they sit on top of balls).
13. Use raw cacao buttons (or white choc drops) to stick onto any visible globs of glue / arrange them on the tree to look like fairy lights.
14. Place the tree in the fridge to fully set until ready to serve.
15. Arrange some fresh mint / something green at the base to make it look extra Christmassy on your table!

Serves Approx

Depends on how many balls you’ve made / size of the tree.
