BOLOS DE CERIMÓNIA
Entertaining doesn’t get easier than my Roasted Cauliflower Hummus with caramelized shallots.
Made using beautifully silky @babylonstoren EVOO and their bespoke Balsamic, this speedy recipe makes an impressive addition to relaxed mezze-style snacks and starters.
Roasted Cauliflower Hummus with Caramelized Shallots
A great way to utilize any late-blooming members of the brassica family, roasting the cauliflower lends a wonderfully nutty taste to the hummus. Best paired with warm flatbread and an extra drizzle of olive oil.
Prep time: 10 mins /Cook time: 25 mins /Serves: 4
You will need:
500g whole cauliflower, broken into florets
6 shallots, peeled but left whole
100ml olive oil
50ml balsamic vinegar
30ml tahini paste
Juice of half a lemon (about 30ml)
1 garlic clove, peeled
Coarse ground salt and pepper
Paprika flakes (optional)
Preheat the oven to 200°C. Scatter the cauliflower florets over a lined baking sheet and drizzle with some of the olive oil. Roast the cauliflower for 20 minutes or until the florets are lightly browned and tender. Set aside and leave to cool. Over low heat, gently caramelise the shallots in about 30ml of olive oil and the balsamic vinegar, being careful to keep them intact when turning. Once soft and sticky, set the shallots aside to cool.
In a high-powered blender, combine the cauliflower, three of the shallots, 25ml of olive oil, the tahini paste, lemon juice and garlic and season with salt. Blitz on high until smooth, adding a little more olive oil if necessary. If required, cool the hummus down to room temperature before serving, topping it with the remaining shallots, a drizzle of olive oil and a sprinkle of paprika flakes.

If you want to become the healthiest version of you, then please understand what is happening within your body each month.
YOUR MENSTRUAL CYCLE IS A REFLECTION OF YOUR HEALTH!
It blows my mind that so many women go through life not knowing what the heck is happening within their body... and let me tell you...it’s INCREDIBLE. ♾
The menstrual cycle is not just about bleeding each month it is a beautiful ebb and flow of hormones that tells a story about your health from puberty until menopause. ♾
The female reproductive cycle is about 28 days long, just like the moon! It has 4 chapters that last about 7 days each.
Chapter 1: The first day of bleeding till it tapers off - your period.
During this time you have low oestrogen and progesterone, which means your intuition is strong, go with those gut feelings. Your body needs rest (especially days 1-3) honour your body and be gentle with yourself. Your exercise should be a gentle walk, yoga or meditation. You maybe craving junk food but you need lots of nourishment to prepare for the next 3 chapters.
Chapter 2: Follicular phase
You get a beautiful surge of oestrogen in preparation for the release of an egg into the fallopian tube. You’ll feel outgoing and extroverted, you can take on the world, play this energy to your advantage. Take on more high impact exercise & tackle some big jobs.
Chapter 3: Drum roll......Ovulation
The highlight of the cycle. The egg is released & this creates the corpus luteum which surges or fabulous progesterone. You are fertile for a couple of days. You should feel calm and relaxed once progesterone is present. If you don’t, make sure you’re ovulating.
Chapter 4: Luteal phase
How you feel during this time will largely depend on if you ovulated and if you maintained that delicious surge of progesterone. Listen to your body during this time. Any PMS, pain, anxiety, acne is your body reporting back to you that the symphony of hormones were out. ♾
Tag your mum, sisters, girlfriends, daughters in this post, because this basic knowledge is your power. When hormones are in sync, we sparkle.
We feel energised, sleep well, look, feel & function at our best. 🖤
So I got a lil suggestion from a friend the other day saying I should put more recipes on here. And I know I should. I’m just so terrible at making recipes which is beyond bizarre considering my love for order and organisation but anyway. So here’s me taking on that feedback and I have a super simple and delish salted peanut bliss ball recipe for you. I know bliss balls aren’t as trendy as they used to be but I still love having some in the fridge to add to breakfast or as a nice afternoon snack. Recipe is down below. Hope you guys had a fab weekend.
Peanut Butter Bliss Balls
- 1 cup dry roasted peanuts
- 8-10 medjool dates
- 1/3 cup activated buckwheat
- 1/4 cup peanut butter
- Pinch salt
1. Add all ingredients to a food processor or high powered blender and blend until combined
2. Roll into balls and set in the fridge for 30mins
Today’s snack was this salted butterscotch brownie from @awfullychocolatesg 🤤 .
This stall in Orchard had the most beautiful sweet treats I’ve ever seen and was so fancy 💁🏼♀️ this brownie was chocolate flavoured with a layer of butterscotch cream topping. .
It was so unbelievably gooey, exactly how a brownie should be. It was soft in the middle, but had a thicker, crunchier base. It really was cooked to perfection. The cream topping was sweet, but contrasted perfectly with the salty brownie. It was so delicious and I wish I’d have got more!! Definitely check this place out if you visit Singapore. . ✅ Snack rating: 9/10
