A combination of my previous banana coconut bread and coconut chia muffins recipes:

In a medium sized bowl, mix all the dry ingredients together:
~ 1/3 cup coconut flour
~ 1/3 cup spelt flour
~ 1/4 cup almond meal
~ 1/4 cup shredded / desiccated coconut

Whiz the following ingredients in a blender:
~ 1 ripe banana
~ 3 eggs
~ 3 dsp rice malt syrup (or panella/rapadura/coconut sugar)
~ 1/4 cup coconut oil, melted

Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix thoroughly
Add in 3/4 cup frozen blueberries and mix through (you could use raspberries too)
Pour into a loaf tin and bake for 45 mins at 160C (cover with foil after 20 mins to avoid the top burning)

This is a great accompaniment to slow cooked Moroccan lamb, full of flavour!

Cook 1 cup Jasmine rice in 2 cups chicken stock (or water), while it is cooking you can prepare the rest of the dish:

You will need:
~ 1 brown onion, finely diced
~ 2 tbsp olive oil
~ couple of handfuls of natural almonds, chopped roughly
~ 1/4 tsp ground cumin
~ 1/2 tsp ground coriander
~ 1/8 tsp ground tumeric
~ handful of raisins/sultanas
~ small bunch of coriander leaf, chopped roughly
~ handful of cashews
~ juice from 1/4 orange

While the rice is cooking, fry the onions and oil in a pan for a few minutes on med-high heat
Add the almonds and spices and keep stiring the mixture until fragrant
Add a bit more oil if the mixture starts to get a bit dry
Add the raisins for the last few minutes
When the rice is cooked, stir through the onion/almond/raisin mix

Cauliflower Almond & Raisin Salad

Inspired by the MasterChef episode on June 26 (feat. Daniel Wilson from Huxtable) I decided to go about attempting to re-create the cauliflower almond salad made by one of the chefs.

~ 1/2 cauliflower, cut into florets
~  1 tsp ground coriander
~ 1/4 cup slivered almonds
~ handful of raisins or sultanas
~ 1 small bunch of fresh coriander leaf
~ salt and pepper
~ olive oil

Blanch the cauliflower in boiling water for about 1-2 minutes
Drain and place in a bowl with ground coriander, salt, pepper and a drizzle of olive oil
Heat a medium sized pan to high heat
Fry off the cauliflower for a few minutes, just to brown up the sides a little
Place back in the bowl to cool down
Toast the slivered almonds with the raisins/sultanas for a few minutes
Add to the cauliflower along with chopped fresh coriander
