Recipe time - comfort foods
November 24, 2020
Hi there Warriors,
I thought for this Newsletter a couple of recipes would go down well and I have chosen a couple of warming, comfort food recipes, and only using safe ingredients for an anti-inflammatory diet.
A couple of tasty recipes ...
It is coming up to holiday time in the US with Thanksgiving and also the time of year when you start looking for more comfort food. These two recipes fit that bill and both are gluten, dairy, soy, sugar free.
Tuna & Avocado Fishcakes
This recipe provides a good dose of omega 3 oils to help reduce pain and inflammation as well providing much needed protein.
Makes 6 cakes
1 medium ripe avocado — peeled and pitted
2 cans Tuna (5oz) drained
1/4 cup seasoned gluten free bread crumbs
1/4 cup finely chopped red onion
2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh cilantro/coriander
1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lime juice
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 large egg – organic
Preheat the oven to 400 F.
1. Lightly coat a baking sheet with cooking spray.
2. In a large mixing bowl, lightly mash the avocado. Add the tuna, bread crumbs, red onion, cilantro/coriander, lime juice, cayenne, garlic powder, salt, and egg. Mix until the ingredients are fairly well combined. (It's ok if the mixture is a little clumpy.)
3. Form into 6 patties, then arrange the patties on the prepared baking sheet.
4. Bake for 10 minutes, flip, then continue baking until the outsides are lightly crisp and the cakes are cooked through, about 10 additional minutes.
Leftovers can be stored in airtight container in fridge for up to 2 days.
Serve with a salad, new potatoes and Tahini dressing – recipe for dressing:

AND …. Time for dessert
This crumble mix will work with other fruit fillings like stewed apple or rhubarb
Approx 6 portions
2 cans/jars organic pitted cherries in water
1/8 teaspoon cinnamon powder
Maple syrup to taste
50g / 1/2 cup ground nuts or seeds (you can use any mix of choice)
150g / 1 cup oatmeal (ground oats)
3 tablespoons rice syrup or use maple syrup
2 tablespoons coconut oil
1 teaspoon almond extract
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1. Strain the cherries and place in bowl and add maple syrup to sweeten to your taste and mix
2. Melt the coconut oil and then mix all topping ingredients together until you create a crumble. This crumble should stick together when you press firmly with your fingers - that's when you know it is ready.
3. Put the fruit filling in a baking dish and top with the crumble. Pat the crumble down gently to encourage a certain amount of 'holding together' with it.
4. Pop into a pre-heated oven at 375F/190C and bake for about 30 minutes.
AND .... to go with your crumble ....
As a dairy-free alternative to heavy cream you can make a dairy free alternative cream from coconut milk.
One can coconut milk (400 ml/ 13.6 fl oz)
1. Place can of coconut milk into the fridge overnight. Don’t shake the can before opening. It should get very thick and the solids should separate from water. If it doesn’t, you need to try another brand.
2. Once thick, transfer to a bowl (without the water!) and mix with a whisk or a blender.
3. This cream mix can be used immediately or stored in the fridge for up to 3 days.
BOOM .... Pudding is solved
