- 1 tsp Greenfields oregano
- ½ tsp Greenfields thyme
- 1 teaspoon Greenfields garlic powder
- 1/2 teaspoon Greenfields sea salt

- Divide each loaf into 10 portions; roll each into a 4-in. circle. Top with 1/4 cup filling; bring edges of dough up over filling and pinch to seal.
- Place meat pies in greased muffin cups, seam side down. Bake until golden brown, 20-25 minutes. Serve with spaghetti sauce.

Easy Seed Crackers
- cups water
- 1 cup organic sunflower seeds
- 1 cup organic pumpkin seeds
- 1 cup organic Greenfields chia seeds
- 1/2 cup Greenfields poppy seeds
- 1/2 cup Greenfields sesame seeds
- tablespoons nutritional yeast flakes
- 1 tablespoon dulse flakes
- 2 tablespoons Greenfields onion powder
- 2 teaspoons Greenfields garlic powder
- 1 tablespoon Greenfields dried parsley
- 1 tablespoon Greenfields dried chives
- 1/2 to 1 tablespoon Himalayan salt
- Preheat your oven to 180° celsius.
- Whack everything together and mix.
- Wait a minute or two until all the water is absorbed by the chia seeds.
- Line two large, shallow baking trays with non-toxic baking paper. Spread the mixture out evenly over both trays. Make sure the mixture is an even thickness or you will get some bits burning and some bits still wet in the middle.
- Put the trays in the oven for 30 minutes. Take them out and then flip over. Peel away the baking paper.
- Score them if you like into squares – but don’t cut all the way through. The scoring will just make it easier to break into bite-size chunks later
- Place them back in the oven for another 30 minutes or until really dried out and crispy. This will depend on your oven and how thick you spread the crackers.
- When they are done, put them on wire racks to cool. Break into chunks and store in an air-tight container.

Vegan Stuffed Vine Leaves
- 1 Cup Long grain Rice
- 10 Cherry Tomatoes or 1/4 Cup Tomatoes, diced
- 1/2 Cup Fresh Parsley, chopped
- 1 Lemon, Freshly Squeezed
- 1 Tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
- 1/4 Tsp Dried Mint
- 1/2 Tsp Sea Salt
- Pinch of ground black pepper
- 60-70 Grape Vine Leaves, in brine (1 jar 430 g gross weight, 260 g net weight)
- 1 Lemon,Thinly Sliced Crosswise
- 1 1/2 Tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
- Drain grape vine leaves and soak them in a large bowl of water. Gently separate and wash the leaves, stack them on a plate and set them aside, covered with a damp cloth so they don’t dry out, until you’re ready to start rolling them.
- Place 1 cup of brown rice and 3 cups of water in a pot and bring to a boil. Let boil on medium heat, uncovered, for about 20 minutes until half cooked. Drain and let cool.
- Add rice to a large mixing bowl and top with diced tomatoes, chopped parsley, lemon juice, 1 tablespoon of olive oil, sea salt, ground black pepper and dried mint. If using fresh dried mint, separate the leaves from the stems and pulverize the mint between the palm of your hands directly above the mixture so that it falls into the bowl. Mix well to combine
- Line the bottom of a pot with some grape leaves.
- Begin stuffing and rolling the rest of the grape leaves.
- Place a grape leaf in one hand, scoop about 1 heaping teaspoon of the rice mixture into the center and carefully fold in the sides and roll it like you would when making a wrap. Make sure that it is rolled tightly enough not to unravel when cooking, but not too tightly because the rice needs some room to expand when cooking.
- Neatly arrange the stuffed and rolled grape leaves in rows, alternating directions, to completely cover the circumference of the pot, in as many layers as necessary until you have rolled and arranged all of them. Drizzle 1/2 tablespoon of olive oil between layers and on top.
- Top with thinly sliced lemon.
- Place a small plate or pot lid directly on top of the leaves, to prevent them from floating while they cook.
- Add water to completely cover the grape leaf rolls and reach the plate or pot lid.
- Bring to a boil over medium high heat, reduce heat to medium and let simmer, uncovered, for about 10 minutes. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover and simmer for about 35-40 minutes or until all of the water has been absorbed.
- Since cooking time varies by stove top, taste the grape leaves, and if the rice still seems undercooked, you can add 1/4 cup of water and continue cooking for an additional 5 minutes.
- Remove from heat and let cool uncovered until you can handle them with your fingers, then carefully transfer them to a serving dish, one by one.

• 75g ground almonds
• 75g dried dates, finely chopped
• 1 tbsp Greenfields orange blossom water
• 1 tsp orange zest
• 4 tbsp finely chopped parsley
• Greenfields sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
• 6 large slices of filo pastry
• 60g butter, melted
• 1 tbsp icing sugar

- 1. Heat the oil in a large frying pan. Add the chicken and fry it skin-side down,
until crisped up and brown. Turn the thighs over and cook for a couple
more minutes, then remove them from the pan. Add the butter to the pan
and when it has melted, add the onions and fry them gently until soft. Add
the garlic and spices and fry for a couple more minutes.
2. Put the chicken back in the pan and pour in the stock or 500ml of
water. Season, then cover the pan and simmer for about half an hour or
until the chicken is tender. Remove the chicken and set it aside. When it is
cool enough to handle, finely chop the meat – it’s up to you whether you
keep the skin or not. Put the liquid back over the heat and reduce it by half.
3. Add the eggs to the cooking liquid and continue to cook over a low
heat until you have a mixture that resembles loose scrambled eggs. Add

any tearing. Repeat with another sheet of filo, this time placing it at a
right angle to the first. Repeat with a further 2 sheets of filo, this time
placing them on the diagonal.
6. Spread the filling over the pastry. Fold over the overhanging pieces of filo
in reverse order – they should just about cover the filling. Take
the remaining 2 pieces of filo and cut them to fit the dish. Brush them
with butter, then cover the pie, tucking under any corners. Bake the pie
