A bowl filled with happiness!

quinoa pumpkin salad with black tahini sauce Our eldest son is gifted with an extraordinary creative talent. Drawing, sculpting, painting, acting, dancing, performing, you name it, he can do it. He is what one would call: multi-talented. But in that long overwhelming list of abilities one thing is lacking. A rather important one too if…

Which Vegan burger do you prefer, homemade or store bought?

Hi there, remember me? It has been quite some time since my last blog. It has in fact been that long, that maybe I need to re-introduce myself to you….I sure hope not! There are many reasons for not having written for so long (several pressing family issues being one of them). But that does…

Purslane, Puy-lentils and homemade feta.

did you know that out of all green leafy vegetables, purslane is the one containing the highest amount of Omega-3 fatty acid, so do not hesitate any longer, go out and pick that purslane! (or buy it like I did).

Lentil-leek curry with ginger rice.

Curious how my son is doing with his new chosen plantbased lifestyle? Well he is doing great, he is very brave at eating every meal I put in front of him, despite the fact that he does not like mushrooms, eggplant, zucchini and bell peppers. You probably wonder how on earth did he decide to…

Broccoli and fresh peas with cashew-Garam Masala curry.

Eating plant based always makes me feel good, but sometimes it makes me feel excellent! Especially when I start experimenting with new combinations and they turn out be a smashingly tasty match! This food is a perfect example of that. Grilled pumpkin, parsnip and green bell pepper seasoned with nothing but some sea salt, black…

Spicy tower of pumpkin and beetroot

As much as I am convinced I am doing the right thing by “showing” people how delicious and easy plantbased food can be, sometimes this little voice in the back of my mind tells me that it is all very insignificant. Obviously that is a very discouraging thought and it leaves me completely uninspired from…

Example of a plantbased week menu

Many people are interested in plant based food. Many people would like to eat plant based food on a more regular base. But many people just don’t have a clue how to go about it and how to fill a whole week with nothing other than plant based food. So instead of sharing another recipe,…

Black rice, pumpkin with a orange-tahin dressing

Don’t you just love pumpkin? I do, in all its forms, baked, roasted, cooked, raw even, in soup etcetera, etcetera. And to think that a couple of years ago I did not even know that you could actually eat pumpkin! I thought that they just served decoration purposes. The fact that I did not know…

Nigella seed and cardemom spiced pumpkin with lemon-curry leaves rice

So, as promised earlier, this is what I served for main course for my friends birthday dinner. Pumpkin roasted in the oven spiced with nigella seed, cardamom and lots of other delicious spices. (thanks to Ottolenghi) What a terrific combination of flavors. An absolute treat! I served it with rice prepared with dried lime, lemon…
