Eeeeeeee!!! Our eyes have permanent hearts on them right now. Local favourites, Mushama & Me have just released some brand new Baby Rain Ponchos and Waterproof Playmats and we are in LOVE!

We’ve talked about New Zealand brand, Mushama & Me before but in case you missed it, these guys make incredible raincoats from pre-loved fabrics which have been water-proofed / wind-proofed. We just love their ethos and the incredibly unique products they make. These guys really are taking environmentally friendly products to the next level!

Form and function definitely combine with both the heart meltingly cute Baby Poncho and the perfectly practical Waterproof Playmat. The Poncho is super easy to get on baby without having to fight with arms / armholes and the hood is elasticated so it stays on!

Now this is a funny recipe that lots of people think sounds a bit odd but I can assure you cauliflower based pizza is unbelivably delicious! It’s lots of fun for the kids to make, especially if you find a purple cauliflower like mine and end up with a crazy Avatar looking pizza.

 

PURPLE CAULIFLOWER BASED PIZZA WITH HOMEMADE TOMATO SAUCE

Gluten free
Makes 1 big pizza

 

BASE

2 cups cauliflower, whizzed up to look like rice, use a fun coloured one if you can!
½ cup of ground almonds
1 tbsp sunflower seeds
2 tbsp pumpkin seeds
1 tbsp dried rosemary
½ tsp salt
1 egg

 

TOMATO SAUCE

1/2 white onion, roughly chopped
3 cloves garlic, sliced
1 tin plum tomatoes
Sea salt and pepper

 

TOPPINGS

Grated cheddar, or Mozzarella
Ham
Mushrooms
Pepperoni

 

SAUCE

In a sauce pan gently fry off the onion with a glug of olive oil until it’s soft.
Add the garlic and stir in a for a minute making sure it doesn’t catch. Then add the tinned tomatoes and pour the empty tin half up with water, swish around and add to the pan too with some seasoning. Gently simmer for around half an hour to 45 mins. Blend until it’s smooth and creamy and leave aside.

 

PIZZA BASE

Preheat the oven to 180˚C. Blend the cauliflower florets in a food processor until they are fine and look like rice.
Take the cauliflower out and microwave in a suitable container for 3 minutes. It should be hot and steamy if not give it another minute, then spoon the hot cauliflower onto a clean tee towel and leave to cool.
Blend the seeds in the food processor until fine.
When the cauliflower is cool enough, wrap it up in the tee towel and squeeze out as much water as you can into the sink. Mix it into a bowl with the almonds, ground seeds and egg. Season and stir until it is all mixed up.

Line a tray with baking paper and spoon the mix on and pat down to make a pizza shape about 1 cm thick.
Bake in the oven for 15 minutes until it is set and golden. Once the base is baked the kids can spoon on the tomato sauce and choose their toppings.
Bake the pizza’s in the oven for around 15 mins until the cheese is all melted.
Enjoy your cauliflower pizza party and remember to wash your cauliflower juiced tea towel ASAP unless you want your house to smell like feet!
