Recipe: Italian Vegetable Oat Crumble with White’s Oats

There are a few staple items that make up your average fitness bloggers’ food cupboard – chia seeds, protein powder, avocados, and of course oats. I am no exception and porridge in the Winter and overnight oats in the Summer are my breakfasts of choice, so when White’s Oats (who have been milling oats in Co. Armagh, N. Ireland since 1841) asked me to create a recipe using their Organic Jumbo Porridge Oats, which are 100% natural and high in fibre, I thought this will be a piece of cake (or bowl of zoats should I say!) But when I thought about it more, I decided I wanted to create a savoury oat recipe because I truly believe they have so much potential beyond our breakfast bowls. So here is my recipe for Italian Vegetable Oat Crumble, using White’s Organic Jumbo Porridge Oats.

Recipe: Squash, Spinach and Lentil Curry

For a variety of different reasons – health, environmental or even just emotional – more and more people are giving up eating meat, or at least limiting their intake. Personally I have been a vegetarian for over 15 years, which means in that time I have had to come up with many different ways to make meat-free dishes, and create my own recipes. When people first give up meat they can sometimes find it hard to be creative or have variety in their meals – which is hopefully where I (and this recipe) can help!

One cuisine that is super-vegetarian friendly is Indian – dhaals, ghobis, saag…. all of these dishes are vegetable based. So I’ve come up with a simple vegetarian curry recipe that is easy and inexpensive to make, and should easily last at least 3 days, so it’s the perfect dish to cook on a Sunday night to see you through midweek suppers and lunches.

 

So without further ado, here is my recipe for Squash, Spinach and Lentil Curry.
