Pom & Flora’s Veggie Sticks and Dip

It’s officially summer and time for backyard get togethers and summer soirees. Today we’re making the perfect dip for all your summer gatherings – Muhammara. It’s a Middle Eastern spread that you will typically find served as a mezze dish, next to other dips like baba ganoush or hummus.

In a traditional muhammara, there are three main ingredients: roasted red bell peppers, toasted walnuts and pepper flakes. Our recipe is nut-free and we promise you – it’s just as delicious.

Muhammara Dip
(serves 2)

2 red bell peppers
1/2 eggplant
0.5 cup pumpkin seeds
3 Tbsp olive oil
1 tsp cumin powder
1/2 chili pepper
1 organic lemon, juice + zest
1 garlic clove, grated
fresh cilantro
salt

Preheat the oven to 300° Fahrenheit (or 150° Celsius). Cut the bell peppers and the eggplant into chunks and place in an oven-safe pan. Add pumpkin seeds and all of the olive oil. Roast in the oven for 25 minutes or so (until soft), turning them over once or twice. Remove from the oven, add cumin powder and let cool.

Add the vegetables and the chili pepper to a high speed blender (or take out the immersion blender), and blend into a smooth paste. Add salt, lemon, garlic and fresh cilantro to taste. Transfer to a bowl and drizzle some more olive oil on top. Serve with carrots, small radishes, red pointed cabbage, endive and dates. And of course, if you’re not allergic, walnuts.

Pom & Flora’s Banana Bread

Banana Bread has been popular since the release of the original Chiquita Banana’s Recipe Book in 1950. Made from mashed bananas, it’s often a moist, sweet, cake-like bread. National Banana Bread day is in February, but we feel like making banana bread today. Luckily, Pom & Flora has come up with this delicious recipe.

Banana Bread
(1 loaf)

3 eggs
1 lb coconut yogurt
8 Tbsp coconut oil, melted
0.6 cup coconut sugar
0.5 vanilla pod
zest from 1 organic lemon
3 + 1 banana
4 oz coconut flour
5.5 oz almond flour
3 tsp baking powder
2 Tbsp chia seeds

Preheat the oven to 320° Fahrenheit (or 160° Celsius). Mix eggs, coconut yogurt, coconut oil, coconut sugar, vanilla seeds and lemon zest in a bowl. Mash 3 bananas and mix them with coconut flour, almond flour, baking powder and chia seeds.

Combine with the egg and yogurt mixture, then transfer to a bread pan. Cut the last banana lengthwise and place on top of the mixture in the bread pan. Bake the banana bread in the oven for 55 minutes. Done!

Pom & Flora’s Smurf Blue Chia Pudding

Holy moly, they did it again. It’s time for yet another showstopper recipe from the one and only, Pom & Flora. This smurf blue chia pudding is the perfect afternoon snack. Also, it’s packed with health benefits and very pretty to look at. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

Pom & Flora’s Smurf Blue Chia Pudding
(servers 2)

4 Tbsp chia seeds
0.5 cup oat flakes
0.5 cup coconut flakes
2 Tbsp dried apricots, diced
2 tsp blue poppy seeds
0.5 tsp cinnamon
0.5 tsp ground ginger
1 cup almond milk
1 cup oat milk
2-3 tsp blue spirulina powder

Add chia seeds, oat flakes, coconut flakes, dried apricots, poppy seeds, cinnamon and ground ginger to a bowl. Add the milk gradually, whisking constantly. A lot of seeds and flakes, and less liquid will give you a thicker pudding. Fewer seeds in more liquid will result in a slimy texture. The perfect chia pudding is creamy and smooth. But remember, it will thicken overnight.

Add the blue spirulina powder. Mix. When you’re done mixing, simply cover and place in the fridge to thicken overnight. Serve with your favorite fruits, berries or granola.

Here’s before we added the nut butter and the granola. Look how pretty it is. No wonder Instagram is packed with photos of smurf blue chia puddings.
