Angela Langford’s Beauty Recipes
So! Yesterday i waxed lyrical about the beautiful products Angela Langford concucts. Being a chef, she also has some delicious, complexion-boosting foods, too! These are ridiculously easy. Don’t be put off by the number of steps – they are utterly simple and totally perfect for beginners. Here’s a couple of her recipes that caught my eye…
Roasted Pumpkin Seeds
– The perfect snack to carry round on castings. Can also be used to garnish salads, soups and roasted veg.
100 grams pumpkin seeds (organic if possible)
Splash of soy sauce
Big pinch of chilli flakes
Heat your oven to 180 degrees C
Mix the pumpkin seeds, soy sauce and chilli flakes together in a bowl to coat the seeds. Scatter over a baking sheet and roast in the oven for about 5 – 10 minutes until well toasted. It’s as simple as that but the taste is so much more than the effort.
Pumpkin Seed Oil is packed full of goodness including skin-loving omegas 3, 6 & 9. It is also rich in vitamins A, B, betacarotene, potassium, magnesium and most importantly zinc which gives the oil a lifting effect. It is very good for treating dry, damaged & mature skin.
Pumpkin seed oil can be found in the Rest & Regenerate Night Balm
Roasted Chia Seeds & Aubergines
2 medium aubergines
2 inch piece fresh ginger
2 tbsp white miso paste
4 tbsp mirin
Dash soy sauce
3 tsp chia seeds
2 tsp sesame seeds
Heat oven to 180 C
Slice aubergines into 2, lengthways through the middle, keeping stem intact.
Slash the flesh lengthways and across the middle to make a diamond pattern
Brush with vegetable oil
Put onto baking sheet & into hot oven, cook for about 25-35 mins.
Meanwhile finely grate ginger.
In small saucepan add miso paste, mirin, ginger & soy.
Heat gently, stirring all the time to melt paste into a sauce.
Next, heat a dry frying pan and add chia & sesame seeds, toast for a few mins.
When aubergines are soft, brush with warm miso sauce and sprinkle with the seeds.
Pop back in oven for 5 – 10 mins intil well-glazed and bubbling.
Chia seed oil is a great source of omega 3. It helps repair sun damage, fine lines or scars and it helps balance oiliness and improve appearance of oily pores. You can find it in the Bloom & Glow Face Oil.
