Happy Tuesday guys! Today’s recipe is Butternut Squash & Root Veggies Bulgur Salad – a beautiful Fall salad that you’re gonna fall for! 🙂 Seriously, it’s so colourful, packed with so many vegetables, crunchy and simply delicious! Not to mention the health benefits! 🙂 Bulgur wheat, beetroot, butternut squash & radishes are just a few of the yummy ingredients!
As the weather is getting a bit chilli (or a lot) I can’t stop but think about heart-warming and comforting recipes like stews, soups and salads too. There are so many amazing Fall salads that I love and this Bulgur is one of my favs. It’s so nourishing and tasty and yet very healthy, packed with vitamins and minerals. All you need is beetroot (which we’ve been having a lot recently), radishes, butternut squash, some corn and chickpeas (optional). The dressing was very simple – extra virgin olive oil, fresh lemon juice and salt, you can never go wrong with this dressing. However I also added some of my spicy avo mayo (recipe hopefully coming soon) which is one of the most delicious dips ever (my opinion and taste 🙂 ). It’s the simplest thing to make – chilli flakes, avocado, lime & olive oil. It tastes delicious with rapeseed oil too. Of course, that made the salad even more filling and this meal filled me up for a long time. If you prefer, you can add some sliced avocado instead.

Happy Sunday folks! Today’s recipe is Raspberry Chocolate pie – moist and chocolatey, this pie is a perfect treat for you Sunday!
I hope you all are having a great weekend so far! I myself had a super fun Saturday at a local farm picking some veg. The kids absolutely loved the idea of picking their own veg and then getting to help me cook them later. Seriously, freshly picked beetroot makes amazing veg chips. I should probably share the recipe with you (it’s no rocket science really, but there are a few tips and tricks) 🙂 Plus, I make them in the oven so they’re much healthier, tastier and cheaper too than the shop bought chips. 🙂 Oh, and the kids love them!
I really don’t know how come we haven’t done this earlier. The farm itself was beautiful with great restaurant where they served really delicious food. My favourite place though was the farm shop. Now, I’ve been to quite a few of those and to be honest wasn’t that much impressed for various reasons. But this particular shop, oh I was in heaven! 🙂 First of all, it was very spacious, with lots of different counters filled with gourmet items. I honestly can’t stop thinking about it and about the items I’m getting next time! 🙂
Let’s go back to the recipe now…
The Raspberry Chocolate Pie is super moist and chocolatey, you couldn’t resist. The raspberries add this amazing berry hint that is just divine with chocolate. The recipe is super simple, all you need is some flour, chocolate, eggs, sugar and raspberries. I’m not a very good baker myself so I always look for the easiest baking recipes and this one is definitely such. All you have to do is mix everything together and bake. 🙂
Here’s how to make the Raspberry Chocolate Pie
- 200g raspberries
- 3 eggs
- 200g flour
- 1 cup sour cream
- 150g sugar
- 150g butter, melted
- 200g dark chocolate, melted
- 1tsp salt
- In a bowl, start combining the dry ingredient together and the wet ingredients in a separate bowl.
- Mix well. Combine the two bowls and mix again till a smooth consistency.
- Gently add the raspberries and stir the mixture thoroughly.
- Empty the pie mixture in a greased baking tray and place in the oven for about 30 minutes or until ready.
I hope you guys love this recipe. Stay tuned for more quick and easy recipes coming next week! Meanwhile, enjoy the rest of your Sunday with some tasty homemade food, hopefully! 🙂
