Spreading the beans

Spreading the beans

I had no chickpeas at home, whereas I needed a spread for lunches at the office during the week ahead. I found I had black beans, so decided to make this yummy and nutritious spread (cos beans are full of proteins, fiber, magnesium and help regulate blood sugar levels – did you know that?). Since then, I vowed to always [+]

Coffee baci balls

Energy ball mania #8: Sleepless Baci balls (coffee meets hazelnut)

All variations are good for raw energy balls and I am in constant search of new combinations! So, as I am a true coffee maniac (among other things ), I needed to have a recipe for my preferred sweet snack with a coffee twist. And here it is! This recipe is similar to my early [+]

Berry chia jam

Bloody Berry chia jam

In the evenings my fav dessert is some non-dairy yogurt, which I top with nuts and a touch of sweetness (it is difficult to find in Paris a coconut-based one, which I looove, so one has to go with soy – the soy-almond and soy-coconut combinations from Provamel are my favourites, available in Bio c’ Bon). For a [+]

Lemon arugula zoodles

Feather light lemony arugula zoodles

Green is the colour . These zoodles are purifying for both the eyes and the body. They are so fresh and light, that it they are the perfect dinner for springtime, which starts to show its nose here in Paris. I got a spiralizer recently and these zoodles were the result of its solemn inauguration. I was [+]

Matcha meets pistachio

Energy ball mania #7: Matcha meets pistachio

Nope, it’s not over yet (and there is plenty more to come – yikes!) . I love matcha and, in feeding my raw energy ball mania, I am trying to find a recipe with a fine balance between preserving the specificity of the taste and the bitterness that matcha can easily give. I think this recipe achieves it [+]

Raw lime

Energy ball mania #6: Raw lime this time (with rhyme)

How far do you think the energy ball mania will go? Up to which #? I think it is likely to become a double digit number!! Yikes !!! These are the (temporary) winner of a little survey I did among friends and colleagues, offering them a choice between two kinds. (I won’t tell you which one [+]

Cinnamon balls

Energy ball mania #5: Cinnamon coats walnut

Yes, yes, it does not stop. It’s a mania I tell you. And it’s very much encouraged by a real appreciation by my colleagues. They are my energy ball testers, and I am ever grateful to them. These ones were inspired from an Instagram post by @veganne_. I loooove cinnamon (have you ever sprinkled it [+]

Klean green hummus

Kleen green hummus

I have been making hummus very often in the past few years. It’s such a tasty, healthy and filling spread, and so I have it often ready to take to the office for lunch, with some superfood bread, black rice & sesame crackers or, simply, some raw or cooked veggies. What I have been making is a [+]

Curry nuts

Curry nuts

This is a fav snack of mine. I make it for parties and whenever I expect friends home. I love the curry taste, the yellowish colour and the fact that it’s basically just – nuts! For this recipe I replaced the egg-white needed with aquafaba, the water in which you find the cooked chickpeas when you buy [+]

Comforting veggie pasta

Warning! A highly comforting veggie pasta

This is a great easy recipe of comforting pasta for cold days, when the body is asking for something warm and substantial, to eat wrapped up in a blanket and watching a good movie. I did it recently when I was ill and could not stop eating it. It is highly addictive . For 2 [+]
