Monday 31st October 2016 - Happy Halloween

Happy Halloween everyone.

I know the streets are going to be busy with people trick or treating so we have prepared a delicious bowl of goodies, from satsumas, sweeties and raw energy balls for the health conscious kids.  So have fun, stay wrapped up warm and keep healthy :)

I think offering children a choice of treats is wonderful because they get the opportunity to see that there is always more on offer than the 'regular' sweets and snacks sold heavily and on display at all the high street superstores.

Continuing on from the theme of our 'Challenge 5' recipes, today my mum made a delicious Tofu Burger and it was so good, I wanted to share the recipe with you.

Tofu Burgers

(1)  250g firm tofu (mashed with a fork)
(2)  4 medium potatoes, boiled and mashed
(3)  1/2 cup of chopped coriander
(4)  1/4 tsp cumin
(5)  4 tbsp flour to coat the patties (or you can use gluten free flour or polenta)

2 tbsp sunflower oil/coconut oil for frying
Salt & pepper to taste
4 tbsp of water or milk (of you choice) if mixture is too dry.

Mix all the ingredients together and make patties to the size you like.
Fry the patties in a frying pan for about 4-5 minutes on each side and then transfer to a baking tin and bake in the over at 180oC for 30 minutes until golden brown.

Tip:  If you don't want to fry, then you can make balls of the mixture and press down in a greased muffin tin and bake in the over at 190oC for 45 minutes or until golden brown.

Both ways are delicious.

The weekend has seen us being really busy with baking and making goodies for both new and existing customers.  We have been making loads and loads of raw energy balls for customer orders and I would like to say a BIG THANK YOU to all of you who have placed orders.  I think it is wonderful that most of the orders were from mummies who wanted to offer not only their own children but other children a healthier option of treats over the Halloween festive period.  THANK YOU

As it has been a hectic few days, I also wanted to say a big thank you to my mum and some friends who have volunteered their time to help me and my business over the weekend and with this in mind I wanted to share this lovely quote from Stevie Wonder, all about Love and Love needing Love.

Have a wonderful week and until soon xxx

" Love's in need of love today; don't delay; send yours in right away...... did you ever think that Love would be in need of love ? "
