(Wal)nutty eggplant dip

Peeps! You know that I am a (wal)nut for eggplants right? Gimme any time! Well, this  luscious dip/spread has been a go-to many times when in the past months I have wondered what dip I want to make to accompany my roasted or steamed veggies and, VERY IMPORTANT, for many of the parties I have [+]

the pancake

THE pancake

I have always looked for the perfect pancake recipe, and, for the time being, this seems to be it!

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 [+]

Klean green hummus
