Matzot is not solely a Jewish tradition, it’s also a Christian one. They are a part of our Easter breakfast table. Obviously both holidays have nothing in common in their origin. The only thing they have in common is that they both occur in early spring, usually coinciding in the same weekend. So how come two different religions have the same tradition? Time for some research!

As we enter the last week of January the veganuary challenge comes to an end as well. Maybe you participated this month in eating vegan, to see if it suits you. Whether you want to stop animal suffering, live a more sustainable life or improve your health. Whatever the reason, how did it go? Do you recognise any of the above experiences? Would you be willing to explore plantbased living further but is it all a bit daunting still?
I had the privilege to have a pre-Xmas dinner with two lovely ladies. I was assigned headchef, the ladies would assist and learn more about plantbased cooking in the meantime. Location was this beautiful kitchen in a stunning house in the nearby forest.

Sprouts are extremely healthy and are an easy way to supply your body with the right amount of nutrients. They are also quite easy to grow yourself and this book helps you how to. So I read the book, bought some basic sprouting equipment and seeds.
After 8 years of vegan baking, exploring the internet for recipes, experimenting, testing (on my kids mostly😆)and adjusting, I finally and wholeheartedly can say that this recipe is PERFECT. The right sweetness, the right texture, the right size, the right crispiness on top. Just absolutely delicious!
This recipe is great after an intensive workout. Within 15 minutes a nourishing, delicious, healthy and protein packed dinner that everyone can prepare!
Shakshuka is, like humus, a very popular dish from the Middel-East. This is my plantbased version, with a creamy cauliflower puree. Epic taste!

Pumpkin-Rosemary-Sage soup. A soft, delicate warming soup with a hint of fresh orange, a bit of summer and autumn in one. I guess you could call it a ‘transition soup’.
A spicy jam made of chilipeppers. An excellent condiment which you can use it warm or cold. It’s great in a pitah (with falafel), it combines perfectly with couscous, rice, bulgur etc., on a pizza but also on a regular sandwich.
To make a long story short, she handed me two pumpkins, a Kabucha pumpkin and a small Hokkaido pumpkin and told me to prepare them and then maybe write about them
I stumbled upon a brownie recipe and it needed banana flour. So I decided to give it a go and did some research along the way. I found out some interesting facts about banana flour and why it is such a great alternative to wheat flours:
