7 Ingredients – Always Found in the Greenwood House

Here are 7 of our non-negotiable Greenwood ingredients!

1. Wholemeal Wraps

Every day that he is home Mark has these incredible wraps. We get the soft wholegrain ones, smear hummus on them, stuff them with tomato, beetroot, cucumber or anything from the fridge, add some avocado and a huge amount of hot sauce. Delicious and nutritious.


2. Nutritional Yeast

I love this stuff. Full of B12. It is a great alternative to cheese. I put it over salads, sprinkle over roast vegetable or add to pasta that I make for Mark as an alternative to parmesan cheese. You can get it at all health or organic stores. It’s addictive.


3. Cauliflower

This is my go to ingredient. I chop it up finely in my thermomix with garlic than stir fry with some soy sauce or steam it to make cauliflower rice. I chop it up roughly and add coconut milk, curry paste and chillies for a curry. Lately I have been coating it in a little coconut oil paprika and salt and then roasting it in the oven for an hour under foil. Take the foil off for the last 20 minutes and you have a glorious whole roasted cauliflower that will blow your mind.


4. Tinned Green Jackfruit

This is a fantastic alternative to meat and is glorious stuffed in soft tacos, over rice noodles or just on its own. I stir fry mine with garlic, soy sauce, chopped tomatoes, and some paprika or flaked chilli. Also delicious with some smokey BBQ sauce. We add it to soft tacos with avocado, corn and hot sauce. Seriously delicious.


5. Frozen Peas

This is random but seriously has so many uses. I use this to make pea pesto pasta with lashings of nutritional yeast. I add it to my cauliflower rice and to cauliflower curries. Sometimes I make mushy peas with plenty of garlic and serve with nutritional yeast of the top. Delicious.


6. Hot Sauce

Open our fridge and there is an entire shelf allocated to hot sauce. It is out of control. My husband is obsessed. He is the only white person I know who brings hot sauce to the fish and chip shop. He has started packing hot sauce when he travels for work. He adds it to every meal except breakfast. If it went with his porridge I am sure he would add it in! I recommend the Byron Bay & Co Habanero chilli sauce with mango. Delicious.

7. Hummus

We always have a huge tub of hummus in the fridge. Delicious with chopped vegetables, smeared on wraps, eaten with roasted cauliflower or with plain crackers. Sometimes when I am feeling particularly virtuous I make my own. I blend tinned chickpeas, tahini, lemon juice and garlic. Otherwise we buy the huge Yumi’s tubs which admittedly are not the healthiest, but Greenie thinks it taste the best!


That’s our seven staples, always in our house. What are the seven things that you always have at hand? I would love to hear.

I hope week two of 2019 is going gloriously well.

You would all be excited to know that Greenie is on a New Year’s Healthy Eating regime and is Killing it! More on that in the future.
