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!
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
I'm so excited to share this one!! This dressing is a secret weapon, a day-saver, and totally fool-proof! It fits perfectly with various veggies both fresh and cooked, as a dipping sauce, in a salad boat... I'd probably even put it in a burger. Actually, I think I have already.Read More
Active weeks call for those trusted, simple, but nutritious and delicious meals. Right? What was supposed to be a "brain off, this and that, nothing special" meal on a tired Sunday evening, turned out to be a keeper! And sure, in a way it is just a bit of this and that, and "nothing special" - but that's the magic.Read More
Comfort food!! This dish is inexpensive, simple to make, filling, and you know... just comfy. This recipe also leaves a lot of room for variation, because it first came to be last winter when it was probably too cold (read: I was too lazy) to go grocery shopping. That's why it is a bit of 'this and that', but on the other hand I kind of like cooking that way: making the best of what I have.Read More
This warm, "mixed Asian cuisine" -inspired salad is a perfect lunch or a great, lighter dinner. It's nutritious and filling, but not at all heavy. The tamarind salad dressing is the trick here, though!Read More
You think cauliflower wings are totally passé? Think again! Everything is better dipped in spiced up tahini. Serve the wings in a soft taco with this sweet & spicy coleslaw, creamy avocado and fresh cucumber.Read More
Pesto spaghetti is the go-to quick meal for many - but who doesn't like simple & delicious, especially in the middle of the week? Sometimes, however, making it yourself can be more satisfying than opening that little jar. Don't worry though, you will have this spinach pesto ready faster than you can spell H-A-N-G-R... Anyway, as a bonus: it's is not only tasty, but also a bit more nutritious than regular pesto. Go brag about that to your friends.Read More
Soup or salad? That was the question that reminded me of this beautiful dish. Ceviche istraditionally made with fish, but don't think any less of this vegan-friendly alternative! The soft avocado and the sweetness of the corn balance out the acidity of all the citrus juice. The ceviche is delicious as it is, but serve it with warm bread and you'll hit the spot.Read More
Usually when I make burgers I go with a simple bean patty. The variations are endless, since pretty much any beans go and the seasoning possibilities are wide open. Some days ago I decided to try and make a tofu patty and the texture was perfect!! Not at all dry, but kept together nicely.Read More
Hello! It's time for the second part of that brunch goodness, as promised. I love all kinds of potato salads in the summer, and they are especially good for festivities because making a larger portion doesn't usually take that much extra work.Read More
