Aussie style meat pies

Aussie style meat pies

  • For the Crust:
    • 400g / ¾ pound Almond Meal
    • 4 eggs (free range, organic, obviously)
    • 1 tbsp coconut oil
    • Pinch of salt and pepper to taste
  • For the Filling:
    • 500g / 1 pound minced beef (grass fed)
    • Approx 500ml /1/8 gallon beef stock (I made this a few weeks ago with lots of bones, and froze lots of batches)
    • 1 red onion (only because I’d run out of brown onions), diced
    • 1 zucchini, diced
    • 1 carrot, diced
    • 4 mushrooms
    • sea salt and pepper to taste
  • Method: –
    • Mix crust ingredients together until it formed into a big ball of dough.  Roll the “pastry” out to fit paper cupcake cases, reserving about 1/3 of the dough mixture for the lids. Makes 8-12 depending on how think you like your pastry
    • Cook at 200c/400f until hard, not golden (yet).
    • For filling, sauté the onion in a spoonful of coconut oil, and added the minced beef after a couple of minutes. Once that was all browned off, I added the zucchini and carrot and let that cook for a few minutes.  Lastly add stock, mushrooms, seasoning and herbs and let it simmer for 15 minutes. Spoon into pie cases.
    • Lastly roll out the remaining dough and cut it into lid shapes to match the cases forming a seal around the edges. Return the pies to the oven for another ten minutes, until they started to turn golden.

Christmas isn’t Christmas without a traditional pudding.  I love the fragrant aroma of cinnamon, vanilla, orange and nutmeg infused into plump sun-dried fruits then finished off with a home made custard poured over the top. These Christmas puddings only take 5 minutes to make, so they’re easy to make and you feel great after eating it, as it won’t bloat you out like traditional versions (and they’re gluten free too!). The dried fruit adds sweetness and moisture, so you don’t need to add extra cane sugar or added fats like most traditional puddings. Almond meal adds protein, vitamin E + the good heart healthy mono-unsaturated oils which are anti-inflammatory to the body. They can be eaten warm topped with custard.

Peach, raspberry and purslane salad

Peach, raspberry and purslane salad

Blogging this week on eating weeds, I was looking for a recipe using purslane, one of Michael Pollan’s ‘most nutritious plants in the world’. It contains higher levels of phytonutrients than domesticated greens –because these foods have to fend for themselves against pests and disease without any help from us and because historically we’ve tended to select and breed plant crops for sweetness; many of the defensive compounds plants produce are bitter. I just don’t use much bitterness in my cooking and so to get my husband eating them, I put it with some sweet in season peaches with a peach dressing

Ingredients:

  • 10purslane strands, cut into inch long pieces
  • 2peaches, sliced (reserve 1/4 peach for your dressing)
  • 2goat cheese squares (I love meredith’s from Australia, about 1in squares)
  • raspberries, handful
  • 2tablespoons olive oil
  • 1teaspoon apple cider vinegar
  • pinches salt

Method:

  1. combine 1/4 peach, olive oil, apple cider vinegar and salt in processor and whiz
  2. gently toss dressing through peaches, raspberries, purslane and feta all in on ego so you don’t mix the feta too much or bruise the peaches.
  3. I actually like this for breakfast atop zucchini (see rainbow) fritters with a poached egg. Love sneaky veggies at breakfast
Zucchini Jaffa cupcakes

Zucchini Jaffa cupcakes

  3. add zucchini, orange juice and half the zest. Process some more
  4. spoon into cupcake papers in a muffin tray, top with orange zest and choc chips
  5. Cook for 25-30min, when skewer comes out clean.

Dukkah, great as a dip with veggies, or even a rub for roasts

Dukkah is great as a dip, sprinkle on eggs – see my Turkish style eggs) or as a rub on roasts. Originally Arabic, the word means ‘to pound’, usually dry roasted seeds and nuts. I’ve also had another awesome one made of simply crushed mint, salt and pepper

Ingredients:

  • 1/2cup sesame seeds
  • 1tablespoon coriander, dried
  • 2tablespoons cumin seeds
  • 1teaspoon salt, I love Maldon
  • pepper, to taste

  1. I usually have soaked and roasted hazelnuts ready in my fridge – let’s face it they’re the chocolates of nuts – but if not just put them in a preheated 350F oven for 3-4min, then put them between a tea towel to rub off the skins.
  2. Meanwhile add the coriander, sesame and cumin seeds in a warm saucepan, up to 5min. You’ll smell them as they’re toasting and know they’re ready – and you’re hungry!
  3. Add salt and pepper and put everything in the food processor. Store in a sealed jar in the fridge
