The perfect starter for a dinner party, great if you fancy a little treat and perfect to use as nibbles if you are hosting a group of people. The best thing is that they are so quick and easy to prepare.

The Brook have developed a range of delicious meals in order to show the world how incredible plant-based food can be.

The dishes are made in small batches in house every day and created with the same level of care and passion every time. Brook have developed these recipes as they understand how hard it can be to sustain eating a plant-based diet in today's busy lifestyles.

From a tiny kitchen in laid-back Fremantle, Western Australia, Amazonia was born. Their founder, Dwayne, had been eating Açaí for a few months and was feeling more energised. Invigorated by the difference these whole nutrients made, Dwayne had to share his little health revolution with the people around him.
Amazonia has now grown into a global health food leader, built on sustainable business practice. With a focus on plant-based food sources, Amazonia now preserves tens of thousands of acres of rainforest to produce only nature’s authentic products.
Their sustainable cultivation methods have the utmost respect for the land and they are a lifeline that generates economic and environmental benefits. They provide income for local farmers and keep massive areas of rainforest and plantations standing through their sustainable business model. They believe in organic agriculture, and tree-oriented agroforestry is a big part of the solution.
"Life creates life, the earth is an ecosystem and we cannot thrive without nurturing this ecosystem that sustains human life".
Amazonia only uses organic and real nutrients - absolutely no synthetic vitamins, additives, or GMO in any of their supplements. They are Australian Certified Organic.
The Kitchen On The Cape, Cape Leeuwin, Western Australia
The Kitchen On The Cape was set up by two ladies who love to cook, excited about developing delicious gut-healing, nourishing and delicious broths. Based in Karridale, between Margaret River and Augusta on Cape Leeuwin, surrounded by fabulous fresh produce and talented producers, they use only free-range pasture-raised chicken and grass-fed beef sourced from a local farm. I spent a lovely couple of hours on this incredible family-run cattle farm last year, where the family control the whole “farm-to-fork” process, including having their very own boning room and processing facility on their family farm. Vegetables are also from local producers. Broths have been developed to be used on their own or as a base for soup, gravy, or curry etc. - anything that requires a bit more liquid. Adding fresh turmeric and ginger to the chicken broth to heal and nourish makes these broths perfect for weary workers or tired children.
The health benefits of drinking bone broth are plentiful, packed full of magnesium, glucosamine, chondroitin it is really good for inflammatory problems, arthritis and joint pain.
