Mezzalune ravioli with kale, mushrooms and red pesto.

This must be the easiest recipe on my website 😉. After finding red and green vegan pesto, I discovered another new vegan product in my supermarket! Mezzalune (ravioli) filled with chickpeas, lentils and rosemary. Fresh, organic and vegan! Of course I took some home with me and instantly new what I was going to do…

Pasta with roasted Brussels sprouts and green pesto sauce.

One of my followers tipped me about a vegan pesto that is available in one of the leading supermarket-chains in The Netherlands. An Italian company with a great philosophy* called Puro! (see link at the end of the blog). So I bought the red- and the green vegan pesto.  Now I have to confess that…

It opened up a whole new world to me. A world of seitan, tempeh, soy-flakes, vegan-burgers and of course tofu!

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…

Spicy lentils, grilled vegetables with tahini-tarragon dip!

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.
