Method

-Using a deep pot add 1tbsp olive oil to a pan and gently fry the chopped onion for around 5 minutes, followed by the chopped peppers for a further 3, then add the minced garlic and allow to cook

-Add the tinned tomatoes, filling the empty tin with water (twice) and add to the pot  followed by all the dried spices and salt and allow to simmer for around 15 minutes

-Add the cooked beans and pulses* (I used a frozen bag of chickpeas and beans which only require 5 minutes of cooking) 

-In the final few minutes, add the tin of coconut milk and heat through, giving the soup a taste test, adding a little more  seasoning if needed 

-Serve up with freshly chopped tomatoes on top, a drizzle of olive oil and a final sprinkling of salt on each bowl

 

*If not already cooked, add the beans and pulses in with the tinned tomatoes and allow to simmer for around 30-40 minutes until cooked through

4 Ingredient Breakfast Bars

These breakfast bars are so easy to whip up in a big batch, then pop in the fridge for those moments when you need a pick-me-up.

You can get as creative as you like with these bars depending on what you have in your cupboards.

 

Sometimes I like to add:

-1/4 cup nuts

-if you don't have the musli mix, use a mix of jumbo and super fast oats

You can store these bars in the fridge for those mid morning cravings or 3pm pick-me-ups.

These are freezable also, and will just need taking out 30 minutes before eating to soften slightly. These are a great lunch box idea as they are relatively cheap to make, super simple and packed with slow releasing energy.

 

 

Ingredients

3 cups IKEA Musli

3/4 cup coconut blossom (or honey if you're not vegan)

1/2 cup peanut butter

1/2 tsp sea salt

 

Optional

1/4 cup pistachios

 

Method:

Simply mix all of the ingredients together in a large mixing bowl until a sticky texture has formed

Pour the ingredients into a baking tin (lined with grease proof paper) and flatten down with a spatula to make it compact

Pop the bars into the fridge to firm slightly, then take out to cut into bite size pieces

You can store these bites in the fridge, or even the freezer
