Winter Chai Spiced Stew

Manu (Manu’s Kitchen) has used our warming Chai Mylk and Coconut Yogurt to bring this beautiful veggie stew to life. Seasonal, packed full of flavour and quick to rustle up. Don’t stew; get cooking.
ingredients: (Serves 4)
1 330ml Rebel Kitchen Chai Mylk
2 Tbsp Olive oil
2 Cloves Garlic, finely chopped
2 Shallot Onions, finely chopped
2 Cups Cauliflower Florets
5 Baby Aubergines
1 Can Organic Chickpeas
1/2 Tsp Cumin
1/2 Tsp Cinnamon
1/2 Tsp Fennel Seeds
1/2 Tsp Mustard Seeds
1/4 Tsp Cayenne Pepper
1/2 Tsp Ground Coriander
1 ‘Star’ of Star Anise
1 Tsp Cider or White Wine Vinegar
1/2 Tsp Turmeric
2 Tbsp Rebel Kitchen Original Coconut Yogurt
Salt and Pepper
Fresh Coriander Leaves

method 

1. In a large dry pot or pan, toast the fennel seeds and spices for a 30 seconds. Remove from the pan and crush the seeds lightly with a knife. In the same pan, sauté the garlic and shallots in 1 tablespoon of olive oil on a medium heat. Add the spices and seeds back to the pan and mix until fragrant. Add the chickpeas, Chai Mylk and a pinch of salt, pepper and the vinegar. Leave it to simmer and reduce for 10-12 minutes.

2. Meanwhile, make the veggies. Boil the cauliflower florets for 3 minutes and drain.

3. In a second frying pan, another tablespoon of olive oil. Cut the aubergines in halves and brown them for 5 minutes on each side until golden and softened in the middle. Brown the cauliflower florets in the same pan until golden, turning them every minute or so.

4. Add the aubergine and cauliflower to the sauce and simmer for another 2 minutes. Combine the coconut yogurt with another 1/2 tsp of turmeric.

5. To serve, sprinkle the stew some fresh coriander leaves and eat with the coconut yogurt along with some brown rice or whole wheat flat bread.

Enjoy!

Matcha Coconut Soba

Our guest blogger this month is Manu aka Manu’s Kitchen (check out her food creations, they rock). Now, we’re kicking off November with something  a little different. Rebel Mylk and soba noodles. It shouldn’t work. But it does. Trust us.

This’ll blow your mind and your tastebuds. So only one thing for it. Time to get cooking…

Ingredients: (Serves 2)

1 330ml Rebel Kitchen Matcha Mylk
Soba Noodles for two
1 Bunch Pak Choy
1 Tsp Vegetable Oil
1 Tsp Grated Ginger
1/4 Red Chilli, finely chopped
2 Spring Onions, finely sliced
Juice of 1 lime
1 Tsp Gluten Free Soy Sauce
1 Tsp Mirin
Salt and Pepper
Chilli Flakes (optional)
Sesame Seeds
Sesame Oil

method:

1. Bring a pot of water to the boil.

2. In a frying pan, heat the oil and sautee the ginger, red chilli and half of the spring onion. When softened, add the Matcha Mylk, lime juice, soy sauce and mirin. Season with salt and pepper, leave to simmer until it reduces slightly (about 5-7 minutes)

3. Chop the ends of the stem off of the pak choy and blanche the leaves in the boiling water for 1 minute. Remove with a spoon. To keep it green and fresh, you can place the cooked pak choy in a bowl of ice cold water.

4. Cook the noodles as instructed. Drain and rinse with cold water. Combine the noodles with the Matcha Broth/Sauce and add the pak choy.

5. Combine half a teaspoon of sesame oil with a little more fresh chilli, the remaining spring onion and a pinch of dried chilli flakes if you like it spicy. Drizzle this mixture over the noodles and pak choy and finish it off with a sprinkle of sesame seeds.

Enjoy!

Coconut, Chia and Cherry Parfait

This recipe brings you a double hit of Rebel’s chocolatey goodness with our mylk and yogurt as the starring duo. Lauren Hunter (The Wholesome Hunter) has once again brought her a-game, showing us the versatility of the powerhouse superfood that is the Chia Seed (is there anything these seeds can’t do?).

Ingredients:

3tbsp Chia seeds (36g)
200ml Rebel Chocolate Mylk
Pinch of ground cinnamon
125g Rebel Kitchen Cacao Coconut Yogurt
3 Cherries, halved and stones removed
Cacao nibs, to serve

Method:

1. Add the chia seeds, Rebel Chocolate Mylk and cinnamon to a jar or bowl and mix together. Cover and store in the fridge. Ten minutes later, give it another good stir to make sure it doesn’t go clumpy and then leave it in the fridge overnight (if you’re making this for an earlier time you will need to leave it for at least 1 hour to allow the chia seeds to swell up and form a gel-like consistency).

2. In the morning, give the chia pudding a stir and then spoon half of it into another jar. Top with half of the Cacao Coconut Yogurt and then add another layer of chia pudding, followed by the remaining yogurt.

3. Add the cherry halves to a small saucepan along with a splash of water. Heat gently until the cherries start to release their juices and become plump and warm. Carefully top the chia parfait with the cherries and their juice.

4. Sprinkle the cacao nibs on top.

Enjoy!

Fudgy Mocha Squares

Our guest blogger this month is Lauren Hunter a.k.a @thewholesomehunter. Her Fudgy Mocha Squares offer a healthier alternative to a flapjack, subbing out refined sugar and butter for other ingredients, and the protein powder and complex carbs in the oats make this a tasty filling post-workout treat. Won’t last too long in your cupboard (you’ve been warned).

Ingredients: (makes 12 squares)

200g Porridge oats

500ml Rebel Coffee Mylk

2 Bananas, mashed

2tbsp Coconut oil

1tbsp Cacao powder

1tsp Bicarbonate of soda

70g Walnuts, chopped or broken up

2 heaped tsp Instant coffee dissolved in 1tbsp boiling water

50g Raisins or sultanas

50g Dark chocolate chips (we use raw chocolate)

1tsp Vanilla extract

40g Protein powder (we used Sun Warrior Raw Vegan Protein)

Method:

1. Preheat the oven to 180°C fan. Grease a 20cm x 20cm baking tin with coconut oil and line with baking parchment.

2. Add the oats and Mylk to a saucepan and bring to a simmer, stirring frequently until it reaches a sticky, porridge-like consistency.

3. Add all of the remaining ingredients and mix together – the coconut oil and chocolate chips should melt easily into the mixture.

4. Pour the mixture into the baking tray and bake for approximately 25 minutes until firm and slightly crispy on top but gooey and moist in the centre.

5. Leave it to sit for about 10 minutes before removing from the tin and cutting into squares. It’s best served hot, so either eat immediately or gently reheat in the oven later on. They’re still super tasty cold – make sure to store them in the fridge and eat within a few days.

Enjoy!

P.S Grab 50p off your Coffee Mylk in Tesco for the whole of October 😉

Chai Panna Cotta with Caramelised Banana

In the words of Britain’s most famed 90s girl group, time to Spice up your life  – with Lauren Hunter’s (@wholesomehunter) Chai Panna Cotta. The combination of Chai Mylk with caramelised banana is the perfect Autumnal blend of sweet and warming spices. This recipe is really quick and easy to make too (which means more time spent eating). Winner.

Ingredients: (makes 3)

400ml Rebel Kitchen Chai Mylk

1.5tbsp Agar Flakes

1 Banana, sliced

50g Pecans

1tsp Cinnamon

1/2tsp Coconut oil

Coconut flakes

Method:

1. Heat the mylk in a saucepan over a medium heat until it begins to simmer.

2. Add the agar flakes and whisk in until it has all completely dissolved.

3. Strain it through a sieve to ensure a smooth texture once set. If the agar agar flakes collect in the sieve then they have not dissolved, so add them back in to the mylk and continue to heat and stir until barely any flakes get caught in the sieve. Then pour it into three 7.5cm-wide ramekins. Once the liquid has cooled, cover the ramekins with cling film and leave in the fridge to set for at least 3 hours.

4. Just before you’re ready to serve, melt the coconut oil in a frying pan. Add the sliced banana along with the pecans, coconut flakes and cinnamon. Sauté carefully to coat the ingredients in the cinnamon but avoid mashing up the banana too much. Remove from the heat once the bananas have become sticky and slightly browned.

5. Use a palette knife to go around the edges of each panna cotta before gently turning out onto a plate. Divide the banana, pecans and coconut between the 3 panna cotta and serve immediately.

Enjoy!
