Beetroot Parata - Beetroot Roti - Beetroot Flatbread - Vegan

When it comes to eating healthy, we are lucky in our family. We do not have to make any special effort. A lot of things that we love are really healthy stuff. That is not to say we do not like the junk stuff. But you get the idea :-)

Beetroot is a family favourite. So it comes as no surprise that we make it often. I was posting a list of recipes that have beetroot in my Facebook page. At the end of the post, the beetroot craving hit me. I was going to make something from that list. But I suddenly had the urge to make something new and blog. So here you have it.

Vegan Five Seed Wholewheat Pizza - Pizza gets a Super Healthy Makeover

Sometimes little things bring joy to life. For me baking and eating Super Healthy Pizza was the highlight of today. What can you say, I am a foodie and nothing can stop me from enjoying some good food and company on Friday.

My son loves Pizza. Another interesting thing is he loves Seeded bread A LOT! Yes, It had to be written in caps. So I decided to combine his love for seeded bread and pizza into one recipe. I have been baking with whole wheat flour for some time now and I have to say, I love it. It does not taste much different from plain flour and is healthier. So why not. I have baked with just whole wheat flour as well. Just takes a longer time to proof for me.

Ethiopian Cabbage Side Dish - Tikil Gomen - Vegan

Sometimes the very basic and simple ingredients make the best dishes. This one is a classic example of that. When I make side dishes for my Roti, it involves a lot of spices and herbs. But this one is very simply flavoured, but is packed with taste. Cumin and Ginger provide the distinct taste, pepper a little spiciness and turmeric the beautiful colour. I have made this without the potatoes as well. It is extremely popular in our house.

You can serve with Ethiopian Bread Injera. But then lets be honest, we do not make that often at home. So we just eat with Roti/Chapati. It is great with Rice or Quinoa as well. Give it a go and let me know how you like it.
