Often when I’ve been out half the day and been to the gym or for yoga, I come back starving (usually I carry a smoothie or a snack with me) but when I’m super hungry, it’s all about being creative and quick with what I have in the fridge, unless of course I’ve prepped lots of veggies and roasts and salad options on the weekend. Anyway, I’d made the ‘life-changing bread’ from My New Roots today (I’m officially addicted to it! It’s so so so simple, once you have the right ingredients, and you can make it into a sweeter bread too if you like, or swap the nuts, add raisins or cranberries. I do love options! Anyway, the standard original recipe is great and that’s the one I used – here it is. Anyway, back to the late luncheon story – I had the bread ready, there was also cucumber and tomatoes in the fridge, but I wanted to make the meal tasty, so I decided whip up a quick healthy but super tasty dressing. If you love nut butter, you will love this!
– 1 tablespoon peanut butter or almond butter
– 2 teaspoons light soy sauce
– 1 teaspoon honey or agave
– pinch of salt (but taste it first – it might not need salt)
– generous squeeze of lemon or lime
Mix all these ingredients in a small bowl really well, and drizzle generously over your life-changing bread slices and salady bits and bobs (I’ve just sliced cucumber using a skin peeler, there’s a few tomato slices, crunchy lettuce boats and some coriander. The chutney in the bowl on the side is not the above dressing – I’m not sure why I put that in but I had some coconut chutney lying in the fridge, and it’s served in a gorgeous little bowl I received from Karin Hossack (find her beautiful pottery here).
Such a treat of a meal, light and filling all at once!
