Blood oranges!! There are loads of delicious looking recipes for this seasonal treat this time of the year. I had to take part because I adore this rare gem of fruit as well. These tartlets are very easy to make, and because the fruit is so amazing itself you don’t even need that many ingredients. They are also… what?? Completely free of added sugar! Don’t ditch your gym card just yet though, I don’t think these count as a “healthy treat” after all.Read More
This spread is made with red lentils and sunflower seeds, which makes it pretty cheap. It's actually quite healthy, too... AND it's super simple to make, plus you can easily change the taste by changing the seasonings.Read More
I used to make all sorts of falafel or bean balls so often I think I got a bit tired of them. I mean cooking-wise - I would never turn down a good falafel, obviously. Taking a break of anything you do very often usually does good, and I think that's exactly what happened here because these here turned out amazing! These basic red lentil based falafel get a spicy kick from one of my favorite seasonings: harissa.Read More
Summer food is all about simplicity, because hey - it's summer, we're taking it easy. Everyone adores new potatoes, but okay they're pretty amazing. Soft and small and cute! This recipe is absolutely perfect for your Midsummer festivities. Enjoy with seasoned crème fraîche!
Grandma's lemon meringue pie was my favorite as a kid, and now I have finally added this delicious creation to my cooking repertoire. (This is the second time I'm making this within a month.) I'm not really a religious person, but I'd say that lemon meringue pie is also an Easter-appropriate dessert. Easter marks the beginning of spring, which is definitely welcome!Read More
The season for blood oranges sure is sweet, but sadly short. Don't worry though, I'm sure this simple roasted dish works just fine with regular oranges! I honestly don't know what to call this, calling it a salad feels like lying. It's roasted stuff. It's delicious. Let's just roll with that.Read More
All aboard the salad boat!!
I am typically inspired by Asian cuisine with a twist, but even more so lately for some reason. I love this kind of food because it's super flavourful without being overly heavy. And I promise you - this will be a simple one!Read More
Oh woman, this recipe has been waiting in my back pocket for weeks now.
I've made these quinoa balls a couple of times now, with both pistachios and peanuts. We don't save oil when frying the quinoa balls, so to serve with: some veggies, rice noodles, pink grapefruit and wasabi vinaigrette!Read More
This meal does not fall under the category of "New Year New Me". But it does offer some comfort if you're feeling overwhelmed by reality after spending the final weeks of last year "taking it easy", so to speak. Some people may feel that way. I'm just saying.
This wok is heavy like your eyelids on a Monday morning, so we make some lime noodles for balance!Read More
Oh my!! It's just about Christmas and I've still got a couple of recipes for you.
Orange and rosemary go together like gin & juice. Actually orange and rosemary go together with gin, too... Anyway, this compote is a perfect companion for savory Christmas dishes, spicy food, and even with gingerbread! Hint: stay tuned for my next post.Read More
It's time for the second Christmas dinner recipe!
This recipe has been on my to-post list for a while. The first time I made this was for my birthday party last summer, so definitely consider this as a festive food for any season. And it was a huge hit! Because the carrot lox itself takes time to prepare and needs to marinate at least over night, this isn't your last minute life saver. Saying that, I need to point out that even though it takes time, it's not complicated at all - don't be afraid of the preparing.Read More
