no-bake chocolate granola cookies (gluten + dairy-free)

I came across a cookbook at the library the other day (I won't name it, but it was released this year by a reputable Australian publisher), which contains loads of recipe which are labeled as gluten-free... but all use spelt flour. Around the same time someone in a NZ Coeliac Disease facebook group which I'm part of (I'm gluten intolerant though, not coeliac), asked the question: is spelt flour gluten-free? It turns out her and her coeliac husband had eaten out at a cafe the day before which called it's spelt-flour pancakes, you guessed it... gluten-free! 

It got me thinking that I really wished I had made a few notes about this in my cookbook, so to remedy this I thought I'd chat a little bit about it here instead. I've updated my New to Gluten-free page with info about this too.

zucchini, millet + mint salad with coriander dressing

As I've already mentioned a bunch of times, I often have leftover millet or quinoa hanging around in the fridge from a previous meal. More often than not this gets used up the next day as a salad or sometimes patties. I recently saw these beautiful zucchini (aka courgette in NZ) at my local greengrocers, which inspired todays recipe. I all to often fall into the roasted vegetable/grain salad rut and although it's lovely and still one of my all time favourite salads, it's sometimes nice to change things up ya know? (Sidenote: This will be my last millet offering for awhile... in case you were wondering! Ha!). If you're reading from the Northern Hemisphere you might be lucky enough to catch the end of season zucchini if you're quick and to my friends in NZ, yours will be showing up soon enough so make sure you bookmark this recipe to make in a month or two! That said, with most of my recipes, if you can't get hold of the vegetable I've used where you live, simply use whichever seasonal offerings you have at hand. Most of the time it really won't matter! That's the beauty of seasonal eating; making the most of what is readily available, cheap and plentiful to create dishes that are vibrant, nourishing and sustainable.

a few of my favourite things {September 2014}

It seems I'm a day late with these favourites (whoops!), but yesterday was just too beautiful to be on the computer and we had the pleasure of looking after one of the cutest little humans for my friend while she did some preparation for her huge talk coming up soon (see link below!). I hope you all had a lovely Septemeber? It sure feels like summer is on it's way... I've got one last millet recipe in the pipeline, I'll be back before the end of the week to share. (Then I'm going to have a little millet break for awhile, hehe).
