"Cheese" Chimichangas...

For people that just like to say, Chimichanga!
Oh, and YUM...


Preheat oven to 180c

(plus 4 flax wraps, recipe for this is on my blog)

cashew paste ingredients (blend together)

1 cup raw cashew nuts
1/4 cup warm water 

Rest of ingredients

1 small red onion (diced small)
1 medium red capsicum (diced small)
2 firm tomatoes (diced small)
3 cloves of garlic (minced)
1 bunch of coriander (chopped)
1 tbsp smoked paprika
juice of one lime
salt and pepper to your desired taste

 1. Ingredients

 2. All ingredients prepped in a bowl ready to mix

 3. Mixed and ready to wrap up

 4. Place "cheese" mix in the centre of your flax wrap

 5. Ensure you tuck your sides then roll to keep all the goodness in. 

6. When all wrapped and ready grease a tray and bake for 15-20 minutes. I topped mine with my salsa also on my blog and avocado! These are EPIC. Taste like they really have cheese in them. You could add shredded chicken in them also.  

love, Love LOVE these...


Flax Wraps

I have been mucking around with recipes for wraps since I began paleo...
She's a keeper. I dedicate this recipe to my first recipe funder as I know this will be a great staple to us all! 


(makes about 6 medium wraps)

1/4 cup egg white powder (I dont know why but its worked the best. Pick it up from any health food shop)
1 cup flax meal (ground flax seeds)
1 3/4 cup water

 1. Ingredients 

 2. Place all ingredients in a blender or food processor and blitz

 3. Should now look as above

 4. Set your heat at medium. I used coconut oil (in spay form) to grease after each wrap is cooked. Pour your mixture onto your already heated flat pan and move around to ensure you get a thin, round wrap. These do take a while to cook. Do not rush them. 

5. You'll know when your wrap is ready to flip when the edges are lifting off your pan. Be gentle when flipping. Once you have flipped your wrap it becomes much more pliable. Set them aside to cool and once cool they are ready.

These are AWSOME.
Eat them as a wrap, burrito, ENDLESS options!

Carob, Goji, Cranberry, & Chai Pudding

Just what I needed for my pre work out snack.
I don't often get a chance to eat lunch at work, and my tummy doesn't like too much before I work out. This sits just fine, and is great for energy.


1/4 cup chai seeds (I used white)
4 tbsp Almond milk (or any you prefer)
4 tsp carob powder
1 tbsp dried cranberries
1 tbsp dried goji berries
1 tsp raw honey
1/2 cup boiled water

 1. Ingredients 

 2. Place all ingredients in a mixing bowl

3. Mix well. Set aside for 5 minutes, and EAT...

I top mine with a little more almond milk!

300gm barramundi (nz snapper would be better) diced
120gm raw prawns (de-tailed)
1 large purple (white flesh) sweet potato (diced, boiled, and mashed)
1 medium brown onion (diced)

200mls coconut cream
Salt and Pepper to taste

 1. Ingredients (plus coconut cream and stock).

 2. Peel and boil sweet potato.

 3. Prepped veggies...

 4. Prepped fish and dill...

 5. Once sweet potato's are soft. Strain, and mash.

 6. In a large pot saute prepped veggies.

 7. Once veggies are just cooked add stock, and coconut cream. Allow to simmer for 5 minutes.

 8. Add your mashed sweet potato and stir until combined. Allow to simmer for a further 5 minutes.

 9. While still simmering add your fish, prawns and dill.

 10. You'll know when your fish is perfect at the pink color your prawns have turned (took mine around 3-4 minutes).

I love chowder!
You could also add scallops, mussels etc!

Just a glimpse out my patio for you.
