We love all things green! From our dried herbs, to protein-rich hemp powder to our exciting new matcha goji Smoosh! Read on to discover what green nutrient dense products you can get your hands on, our favourite green recipes and smoothies and how we’re continuously “going green” as a business!
With a big new range of fragrant green herbs like basil, sage, thyme, mint and parsley to name a few, we felt inspired to share some of our favourite ways to use these herbs. Herbs add a depth of flavour to dishes, can make an ordinary dish extraordinary and can really liven up the overall look of the dish.
Parsley & Mint Falafel
Pack in the protein and greens (with spinach, mint and parsley included in the mix) with these tasty homemade falafels. We’ve also included a mint and tahini dressing recipe to drizzle over the falafel. Serve them with a salad or, rice, couscous, quinoa or in a homemade wrap – the possibilities are endless!
Basil Pesto Pasta
Basil pesto can really liven up any sandwich, salad or pasta! We’ve mixed it with pasta, asparagus and roasted tomatoes is this recipe but you really can add it to any number of dishes. If you keep dried basil in your cupboard, you can make this recipe as a go to whenever you fancy!
Vegan Herbed Cheese
For a creamy, herby nut-based vegan cheese, look no further. This cheese is flavoursome, fun to make and spreads well. It’s a great addition to your cheese board.
An easy way to get your greens is to blend them into a smoothie. Below are 4 of our favourite Green smoothies using some different green products of ours – Hemp Protein Powder, Wheatgrass Powder and our super popular Green Blend with Matcha, Wheatgrass, Spirulina, Chlorella and Green Tea. Our new MCT oil is also a great oil to add to smoothies for an energy boost.
Pumpkin Seeds are high in magnesium, antioxidants, protein and many other nutrients making them a no brainer for including in our green foods roundup. Keep visual in a jar on the table and sprinkle on whatever you are eating, we love them on scrambles, avocado on toast and cereals to really boost our vitamin intake for the day!
For a green treat, try out our NEW Matcha Goji Smoosh. This has a refreshing taste of Matcha Green Tea with little nuggets of sweetness from the chocolate drops and goji berries!
