Rosy cheeks beet crackers

Well, sorry, but these beet crackers don’t actually have beets . They only have beet water, that gives them that nice rosy cheeks colour.  In general, if you want to add rosy-red colour to your preparations, beetroot and the water in which you buy it (if you buy it cooked) is your answer. I am in a [+]

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 [+]

Riceless risotto with beets

Asia meets Italy: riceless risotto with beets

I have realized, posting on Instagram and on this site, that I am more into preparing and sharing simple sweet treats rather than more complicated savories.  True, I have a sweet tooth, but, don’t get me wrong, I also make savoury dishes . So, I need to equilibrate things here! Annndd, I love risotto and I love [+]

Spicy peanut noodles

Spiced-up peanut veggie noodles

It’s been a while since I have posted a dish for lunch or dinner, and believe me, I do cook savoury dishes regularly.  There are several go-to recipes for veggies and noodles or pasta that I normally do for weekend dinners. This one is so good that it is has already made its place among them. [+]

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 [+]

Pizza in a cracker

Pizza in a cracker

What shall I take to work to eat my hummus or avo spread with? That is the question that I often face when I prepare my week (I normally make sure I have at least some hummus in the fridge). Most of the time I take rice crackers bought from the store, but a colourful homemade option is better, right? These [+]

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 [+]

gigantes beans

Gigantes! Baked beans à la grecque

It’s a big day! This is the first in what I hope will be a series of posts featuring foodie friends who are passionate about healthy eating. My dear friend Maria, who has also been a privileged food tester for most of the dishes you see on this blog, is the brave pioneer. Thank you M!  [+]

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 [+]
