Heat one tablespoon of peanut oil in a large skillet set over medium heat. Add the tofu pieces and fry until golden brown, about 5 to 7 minutes on both sides. While the tofu is frying, stir the mushroom soy sauce, sesame oil, and sugar together in a small bowl until the sugar has dissolved.
Once the tofu is browned, pour this mixture into the pan. Allow the sauce to cook in the pan for 1 to 2 minutes, until it begins to thicken.

Top the noodle bowls with julienned carrot/beetroot, sliced capsicum, cucumber half moons, herbs, and peanuts. Pour a quarter of the prepared dressing over each bowl. Serve at once.

STAGE 2: Put 2 tablespoons of olive oil and the knob of butter into a separate pan, add the leeks, garlic and celery, and cook very slowly for about 15 minutes without colouring. When the vegetables have softened, add the rice and turn up the heat.
STAGE 3: The rice will now begin to lightly fry, so keep stirring it. After a minute it will look slightly translucent. Add the wine and keep stirring.
STAGE 4: Once the wine has cooked into the rice, add your first ladle of hot stock and a good pinch of sea salt. Turn the heat down to a simmer so the rice doesn't cook too quickly on the outside. Keep adding ladlefuls of stock, stirring, allowing each ladleful to be absorbed before adding the next.
Taste the rice to check if it’s cooked. If not, carry on adding stock until the rice is soft but with a slight bite. If you run out of stock before the rice is cooked, add some boiling water.
Remove from the heat and add the pecorino romano. Stir well. Place a lid on the pan and allow to sit for 2 minutes.

Homemade Kombucha Makes 4 Litres
Kombucha is a fermented drink made from sweetened tea. Its exact origin is unknown, however it was being made in China, Japan and Tibet at least 2000 years ago. Typical carbonated drinks are a mixture of sugar, carbonated water and artificial flavours whereas kombucha is truly alive. The natural fizz is produced through fermentation and it has natural flavours. Once you’ve tried properly made homemade kombucha the store bought versions will no longer satisfy.

~ Ingredients ~


FIRST FERMENTATION
1 Kombucha SCOBYKombucha SCOBYOnce you have a new SCOBY (Symbiotic Culture Of Bacteria and Yeast) you can make your very own fizzy, tangy kombucha. This is a two step fermentation process. Recipe found on our Recipes page.STOCK

and starter liquid
4 bags of organic green tea (you can use black, white or green however we prefer green)
300g organic raw brown sugar
4 litres of rain water or unchlorinated water
A 4 litre glass drink dispenser with tap is ideal
Piece of cheese cloth or other fabric to cover drink dispenser lid
Large elastic band or string to secure fabric ‘lid’

SECOND FERMENTATION
10 x 375ml preferably glass bottles with lid. We like to reuse any glass bottles with a flip lid attached.

Raw brown sugar
4 litres of homemade first ferment kombucha (see above)
funnel

~ Directions ~


FIRST FERMENTATION
Bring 1 litre of the water to boil in a large saucepan. Once the water has boiled remove from the heat and add the tea bags and sugar. Stir in to dissolve the sugar then let stand for 10 mins to steep and cool slightly. Remove and compost tea bags and while the tea cools you can prepare the glass dispenser. In the glass dispenser place the remaining 3 litres of water and add the Kombucha SCOBYKombucha SCOBYOnce you have a new SCOBY (Symbiotic Culture Of Bacteria and Yeast) you can make your very own fizzy, tangy kombucha.

and starter liquid. Once the hot tea has cooled to luke-warm or room temperature you can slowly add to the drink dispenser. Cover the opening of the dispenser with fabric and secure with string or an elastic band. It’s important to let the kombucha breathe but to also prevent flies and other insects from gaining access to the ferment. Place dispenser in a warm place and away from direct sunlight. Ideal fermenting temperature is above 25 degrees Celsius. Once a new SCOBY has formed on the surface of your ferment (approximately 7 to 14 days depending on the temperature) you can start the second fermentation.

SECOND FERMENTATION
Using the funnel place half a teaspoon of sugar in each bottle, 3 Lemon Myrtle LeavesLemon Myrtle LeavesGrown on permaculture swales, irrigated naturally and hand picked to order.

, mulberry, grapefruit with marjoram or stand-alone passionfruit. Just add a sprig and 2 tablespoons of juice or fruit pulp per bottle and the sugar. Note: be careful with passionfruit during the second fermentation because it ferments quicker and may need a burp after a couple of days to release some gas, or simply place in the fridge earlier. Failure to check this will result in an explosive bottle ie. When you open it you’ll lose most of the contents. Think of a shaken-up bottle of champagne.

, chopped fresh tomatoes - heirloom mix.

~ Directions ~


Preheat the oven to 200 degrees Celsius.
Start by cooking the brown rice according to directions. Allow to cool slightly before assembling the final bowls.
Chop the sweet potatoes into bite-sized chunks. Slice the capsicum and set aside.
Toss the potatoes with 3 tablespoons olive oil, smoked paprika and chipotle in adobo sauce.
Place the potatoes in the oven for 15 minutes. Remove from oven and add in the sliced capsicums and toss around to coat.
Return to the oven and cook for another 15-20 minutes or until the capsicums are crisp tender and the potatoes are tender.
While the potatoes and capsicums are cooking prepare the refried beans. In a flat heavy saucepan fry the beans over a medium heat for a minute or two. Add the garlic, coriander powder, cumin powder and chili powder. Continue frying for 5 minutes. Add the vegetable broth and simmer until some of the broth has evaporated. Mash the beans in the pan (keeping on the heat) with a potato masher. It’s important to leave enough moisture to mash the beans in the pan. If you don’t the beans will be dry. The beans should be mashed to the point where they are somewhat smooth yet chunky. Stir in the fresh chili and coriander if using.
While everything is cooking, in a small bowl, combine all of the dressing ingredients and whisk together until completely combined.
Make the bowls: fill a bowl with cooked rice, top with veggies and beans, and add toppings and dressing.

purée to onion mix and stir to combine. Bring to a simmer then add crushed tomatoes, sugar (if using) and stir to combine. Bring to simmer again, then on medium heat stir in kale and cook until wilted. Season with 1/2 teaspoon of salt and pepper to taste.
While everything is cooking toast the pepita seeds in a small, dry hot pan until they start to pop, then remove to cool. Melt the butter in the same small pan and crisp up the sage leaves.
Add half cream to pan with sauce and stir to combine, then stir in pasta. Use a little of the reserve cooking water, adding a little at a time, and more cream too if required to obtain the right consistency. Sauce should be thick enough to cling to the pasta.
Remove from the heat and stir in half the pecorino romano. Add more salt and pepper if desired. Serve and garnish with the toasted pepitas, crisp whole sage leaves and a little extra pecorino if desired.
