Pumpkin, Turmeric & Ginger SoupπŸ‘‡

http://www.gatherandfeast.com/pumpkin-turmeric-ginger-soup

breakfast that looks like dessert?! I’m ok with that πŸ€— toasted crumpets with coconut yoghurt and freshly poached rhubarb πŸ™ŒπŸ» yes!!
β€’
I’m loving that it’s rhubarb season here in Aus. I grew up eating so much of it that earlier I was getting all sentimental eating it straight from the pot. ha! πŸ˜‚
β€’
here’s my rough rhubarb method -- add rhubarb to a saucepan with a cup or two of boiling water, a touch of vanilla, and a little splash of maple syrup (I only add a little, I like to keep it quite tart/sour), then simmer on low for about 15 minutes -- quick, easy and delish! also great on porridge or with granola and yoghurtπŸ‘ŒπŸ»βœŒπŸ» Ash x #gatherandfeast

buckwheat crepes with yoghurt, grapes, maple & bee pollen ✨😍 some mornings we have green smoothies for breakfast & on others we have crepes... it’s all about the balance right?! β˜ΊοΈπŸ™ŒπŸ»
β€’
I've used natural sheeps milk yoghurt but for dairy free use coconut yoghurt - then topped with these beautiful sweet sultana grapes I picked up from the grocer, drizzled with pure maple + a sprinkling of bee pollen. yum! I also added some raspberries after I took this photo - a good + delicious decisionπŸ‘ŒπŸ»
β€’
I’m still perfecting my basic crepe recipe but if you are interested here is the recipe as it currently stands...
β€’
1 1/4 cups flour (I’ve used 1 cup of buckwheat flour + 1/4 cup spelt flour)
2 cups almond milk
1 egg
1/4 tsp vanilla
A pinch of sea salt
β€’
whisk the ingredients together in a mixing bowl until super smooth, allow the mixture to rest for 10-15 minutes.
add a tiny bit of coconut oil or butter to a non stick pan on medium to high heat.
roughly add 3/4 cup of the crepe batter and swirl around your pan so it thinly coats the pan. if it feels a little thick whisk a little more milk into the mixture. also, I find the first crepe or pancake is always a dud (why is that?!) so don’t worry, the rest will be great.πŸ€—
once little bubbles begin to surface on the crepe flip it over and cook for roughly 30 seconds.
remove from pan onto a plate and set aside.
cook the rest of the mixture and serve warm with yoghurt, pure maple and your favourite fruit.
β€’
enjoy! ash✌🏻 x  #gatherandfeast
