Cardamon spiced apple compote

500g of  washed, chopped apples (I dont peel mine)
4 tbsp water
2 tsp spices – cardamon, cinnamon or ginger work well

Place your fruit into a heavy bottomed pan
Add the water
Cook the fruit over a low to medium heat with the lid on for approx 20 minutes
Once the fruit has softened, remove the lid and cook until the liquid reduces
If you want a super smooth consistency then allow to cool before placing the compote into a blender for 2 minutes


Rice noodle salad with an almond butter dressing

2 nests rice noodle vermicelli
1 courgette
2 carrots
1 cup edamame beans cooked
3 tsp almond butter (unsweetened)
2 tsp brown rice vinegar
1.5 tsp tamari

Place the vermicelli in boiling water for 5 minutes
Whilst the noodles soak, julienne the vegetables and place into a large bowl
Drain the noodles and add to the vegetables, using kitchen scissors chop everything up
Whisk the almond butter, tamari and vinegar and dress the noodles/vegetable mix
Chop the cashews up and then place into a frying pan
Over a medium heat, toast the nuts for two minutes
Stir into the noodles


Watermelon juice

2 large slices watermelon
1 raw beetroot
2 large carrots

Chop all the fruit and vegetables
Place into the juicer – beetroot first and watermelon last (this is just because the water content of the melon will flush the juicer out making it easier to clean and ensuring that you get all the beetrooty goodness)
Pour over ice cubes
