Baked Apple Tahini Porridge

Baked Apple Tahini Porridge
The perfect breakfast for cold mornings: baked cinnamon apple porridge, with a tahini drizzle, always! This time we added some Evolution 18 vanilla collagen for an extra nutritional kick!
 
INGREDIENTS
2 apples
100 g oats
200 ml milk (or dairy-free alternative)
300 ml boiling water
50 g toasted hazelnuts (or almonds if preferred)
50 g raisins (substitute with chopped dates or dried apricots if preferred)
2 tsp cinnamon
2 tbs honey or maple syrup
3 tbs Seed + Mill Organic Tahini (plus extra for drizzling)
2 tbs Vanilla EV_18 protein powder


STEPS
1. Preheat the oven to 400 °F. 
2. In a bowl, combine oats, boiling water, and raisins and leave until the oats are soft, about 10 minutes.
3. While the oats soak, peel one of the apples and grate on a box grater.
4. Once the oats are soft add the grated apple to the oat mixture, together with the cinnamon, honey, milk, tahini and EV_18 powder. Stir to combine and then transfer the mix into a small baking tray.
5. Slice the second apple into thin slices (we use a mandolin for this, leaving in the core for a pretty star shape). Arrange the apples on top of the oat mixture. Sprinkle a touch more cinnamon and scatter the nuts across the top.
6. Bake for about 20 minutes, until the apples are starting to crisp up.
7. Serve warm with an extra drizzle of tahini!

    Creamy Vegan Shepherd's Pie

     As far as cozy winter food goes, it's hard to beat a Shepherd's Pie. It's hearty and warming, perfect for the days when the sun sets at 5 and it's too cold to leave the house. As much as we enjoy the traditional version, we also love a plant based option, using lentils in place of ground meat. The tahini is a great substitute here for butter in the mashed potato topping, and adds a rich, creaminess to the filling. Our founder, Rachel's husband and kids enjoyed this dish for dinner the day we shot this picture and gave it a big unanimous thumbs up!

    Gena Hamshaw's Broccoli Tahini Pesto Pasta
    Gena Hamshaw's Broccoli Tahini Pesto Pasta

    "I usually toss cooked vegetables into my dinner pastas for added fiber and nutrition. This recipe--which calls for an entire head of cooked broccoli--takes that effort to a whole new level. Half of the broccoli gets chopped and added to the pasta, while the remaining half is pureed into a bright green, tahini-based pesto. The creamy texture of this pesto gives more body to the finished recipe than an oil-based pesto would. Untraditional as it is, it has become by favorite pesto for using in pasta dishes."
