We have been uncooking up a storm over the past few days in preparation for our SA tour with David Wolfe.  We have loved using our new book, Easy Living Food, and have realised what a great resource it is going to be in our Earthshine kitchen!

Sitting in the dehydrator right now…. Super Granola (page 62). This is definitely a family favourite. Apart from being a great cereal, it is also a delicious snack for lunch boxes. We normally make the recipe five up, and this lasts us for a few months. We used brazil nuts as the creamy base, and added flax and chia instead of nuts into the bulk mix.

Also in the dryer now are the Protein Kale Crisps (page 98).  You will find curly kale here: ethical.org.za and here: Organic Zone. Curly kale is our favourite variety for these chips, as the folds in the leaves hold the cheezy sauce beautifully.

We couldn’t resist making up a giant batch of Crumbed Onion Rings (page 126). They store very well and if they actually manage to make it to the dinner table before they are all gobbled up, they add a fabulous dimension to the meal.

For our two week trip, we have stocked up on a range of teas, supplied by Lady Bonin’s Tea Parlour. We have Oolong, Puerh, Cammomile and a super Moroccan Green Mint and Nat’s personal favourite, Yerbe Mate. Visit http://www.ladybonin.com for more information.

For those of you who have not yet bought tickets, you can call Superfoods on 0861 000 976 or visit http://www.rawlicious.co.za to make an on-line booking.

This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to come and hear David speak and connect with this raw food dynamo!

Looking forward to seeing you there.
