Pink hummus

Beeting Hummus in pink

Did I tell you I was in my pink period? Ok, I am not speaking as a painter, cos I am not one. I’m in my pink period, because I am quite a lot into beetroots right now. Not only do they give that nice pink colour to whatever you mix them, but they are [+]

Minty zesty lentils and zucchini

I did not really plan to post this recipe, cos it’s the exact copy of the one by Deliciously Ella in her first cookbook. But, it is so fresh and simple to make, and it was quite a success at a recent brunch I had, that I need to put it here (I see this [+]

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 [+]

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 [+]

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 [+]

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 [+]
