Drew Ridley said:
“Our team of problem solvers, insight-driven strategists, design experts and storytellers are true foodies who thrive on helping brands create and share exceptional food products and experiences. We are passionate about the importance of delicious, nutritious food and we’re thrilled to team up with Rosa and Margo to inspire people to try zest up their summer salads, to spotlight nectarines and peaches as a key ingredient of the summer, and to highlight new compilations – such as roasting fruit and topping with dukkah.”
Katie Reeves said:
“Rosa and Margo’s down to earth approach to create over the top delicious but accessible, affordable, and nutritious food, as well as help people better connect with their food, really resonates with what we’re working to achieve at We Are Sprout. We love Two Raw Sister’s Roasted Beets and Nectarines with Dukkah recipe, it brings together fresh, zesty, savoury and sweet flavours, and including peaches makes a wonderful substitution or addition.”
Rosa and Margo Flanagan said:
“We believe everyone should benefit from healthier living, and while we take nutrition seriously, we love making cooking practical, relatable and enjoyable for all eaters. We love the inclusion of nectarines or peaches in a summer salad, and it brings added nutritional benefits too. And, if you haven’t tried roasting fruit yet, it is a must! We’re thrilled to team up with We Are Sprout to share our recipe, and to highlight the power of nectarines and peaches.”
Peaches and nectarines - the spotlight salad ingredient of summer
Grown around Australia and in season from October to April, nectarines and peaches capture the taste of long sunny days and warm nights, and are a good source of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, fibre, and prebiotics.
Perfect as a quick snack, these juicy stone fruits with their delicate, fresh flavours are an excellent addition to zest up a salad – and can be taken to a new level when roasted or grilled.
ABOUT Two Raw Sisters
From Christchurch, New Zealand, Rosa and Margo Flanagan have created an internationally recognised plant-focused food platform to educate and inspire all eaters to create better lifestyles by making plants the centrepiece of every plate. Neither of them are vegan or vegetarian; they just prefer putting meat second. Their recipes aim to break the barrier between eating well and sustainably while being mindful of cost.
Rosa and Margo’s journey was inspired by their own personal health challenges – Rosa was an elite athlete before developing an eating disorder, while Margo suffered from chronic fatigue and endometriosis. Finding strength to overcome their challenges together, Rosa became a qualified nutritionist and Margo a culinary aficionado. Discovering the power and delicious taste of plants, and wanting to share this with others, Rosa and Margo launched their first cookbook in 2018.
Two Raw Sisters now have four best-selling cookbooks - Salad, All Eaters Welcome, Two Raw Sisters, and Simply Fancy - as well as an iOS and Android app - Two Raw Sisters - and a FODMAP e-book.
