What is baobab fruit powder?
Baobab fruit is edible, and baobab seed powder is used in foods because of its nutrients, possible health benefits, and as a natural preservative. It is a good source of vitamin C, potassium, carbohydrates, and phosphorus. The fruit is found inside hard pods that hang upside down from the tree. It has a citrus flavor.

INGREDIENTS:

Dry:
1 heaped tsp Baobab Powder
71g coconut flour
36g psyllium husk powder (no substitutes)
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
pinch of salt

Wet:
2 tbsp (28ml) apple cider vinegar
3 chia eggs (3 tbsp ground chia seeds + 9 tbsp lukewarm water)
1 cup boiling water

METHOD

Preheat the oven to 180 °C.

In a large bowl, add the coconut flour, psyllium powder, baking powder and salt and mix well. Add the chia eggs and vinegar and mix until well combined. It's easier to use your hands to bring the dough together.

Add the boiling water to the bowl. Mix until well combined and dough firms up. Divide the dough into 4 or 5 equal parts and roll them into balls. Place them on a lined baking tray, 1 inch apart, as they will slightly expand during baking, and flatten slightly.

Bake for 50 minutes, or until firm to the touch then remove from the oven and place on a tray to cool.

Cut in half horizontally and stuff with your favourite fillings. Mine are avocado, beetroot, grilled tempeh and zoodles. Sweet fillings like nut butter and bananas are also good! 

Enjoy!

Potatoes are a nutritious, healthy food that are rich in vitamins A, C, & B-complex and minerals such as manganese, iron, magnesium, and potassium. Potatoes contain an antioxidant called quercetin which has anti-cancer and cardio-protective properties as well as a storage protein called patatin which has been shown to exhibit activity against disease causing free radicals.

Chili Cheese Fries

Ingredients:
3-4 large russet potatoes, cut into fries
1/2 tsp paprika
1 tsp dried oregano
Sea salt, to taste (optional)
1 1/2 cups chili, to serve
1 tbsp chopped fresh parsley, to serve

Cheese
1 cup unsweetened almond milk, more if needed
2 1/2 tbsp arrowroot starch
1/2 tbsp onion powder
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp paprika
1/4 tsp turmeric
1 tbsp lemon juice
1 tbsp coconut aminos (optional)
Sea salt, to taste (optional)

Directions:
Preheat oven to 425F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. To make the fries, place the uncooked fries in a large bowl and add the paprika, dried oregano and sea salt. Mix until well coated.

Arrange the fries in a single layer on the baking sheet and bake for 30-35 minutes, flipping them over half-way, until crispy and browned on both sides.

To make the cheese sauce, place the unsweetened almond milk, arrowroot, onion powder, garlic powder, paprika, turmeric, lemon juice, coconut aminos (if using) and sea salt (if using) in a small saucepan. Stir with a whisk until uniform.

Place the saucepan on medium-high heat and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to a simmer and cook, stirring often, until the mixture thickens - about 1-2 minutes. Remove from heat.

Taste and adjust the seasoning. Add a bit more almond milk if a thinner sauce is desired.

To serve, place fries on a serving platter and top with the chili. Drizzle with cheese sauce and garnish with chopped parsley. Serve immediately.

Serves: 2
