This Recipe comes from my interview with Amy Crawford of Holistic Health. These little balls are full of plant goodness, and make a great little snack. In Amy's words, they are the business!
Makes a tray full of 20-25 beautiful bites
Prep time: 15 minutes plus 8-15 hours dehydration
2 cups broccoli
2 cups English spinach
1 1/2 cups sunflower seeds
½ cup pine nuts
½ chopped onion
4 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil (or sacha inchi oil)
2 tablespoons chopped parsley
1 large garlic clove
½ - 1 teaspoon salt, to taste
½ teaspoon pepper
½ teaspoon nutmeg
Process the sunflower seeds until fine. Add all remaining ingredients and blend well into a thick paste. Place teaspoon or tablespoon sized bites onto a teflex sheet or baking paper for your oven. Dehydrate for 8-15 hours on your pilot light in the oven (approximately 50*c) or 40*c in your dehydrator. Turn the bites over after approximately 5 hours.
These will keep in the fridge for up to a week or freeze and use as required.

What do you get when you combine dates with maca…? Caramel! But not the sickly kind - the earthy, malty, bear hug kind, that feels like you’ve just put on a big woollen jumper. These delicious mugs of goodness are my new favourite beverage and, now that we’re nearing mid-winter, they’re totally needed too.
Two words. Burger Rings. But in a kale chip! The smoky BBQ tomato coating on these is everything you loved about those orange little rings, without the nasties, and a host of health benefits too.
