Red cabbage is packed with antioxidants – these are the plants natural defence chemicals and they’re extremely important for our long term health. Our gut bacteria actiavte them for us so they’re great for gut health too! Using these seasonal veg along Hillfarm cold pressed rapeseed oil makes this a truly nutrient-packed dish.
Autumn is one of my favourite times of the year, not least as we have a bounty of apples! If you’re lucky you can pick them off a tree – this recipe works with bramleys (cooking apples) just as well as eating apples – be sure to keep their skins on for extra fibre!
I have to be honest and admit that our daughter Jane created this one – making the scones as a sharing round was her idea too and enhances that ‘together’ feeling that sharing great food should bring.
Using quinoa puffs and spelt flour makes them especially healthy and packed with fibre, and we like to crumble the cheese in rather than grate it, to make more of the cheese in the scone.
We all need treats and I love baking food that tastes amazing as well as being fabulously gut healthy!
This recipe uses Hodmedods organic puffed quinoa and rolled oats, as well as Doves Farm ‘palm oil-free’ digestive biscuits! It’s also much lower in free sugar as I use chopped dates too.
Quick to make and extremely popular in our house!
I’ve worked with the British Trout Association in creating this colourful dish, designed to be quick and easy for busy families and a great way to get everyone enjoying oily fish, and of course those all-important veggies too!
