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 [+]

Black rice crackers

Black rice & sesame crackers

These little babies, adapted (only slightly) from Amy Chaplin’s At Home in the Whole Food Kitchen, make everyone go “wow” at parties. They are really really tasty by themselves or served with your favourite hummus (here is mine) or baba ghanoush or guacamole, while being unusual and, why not, a most elegant addition to a cocktail table.

Pumpkin soup

The ultimate pumpkin soup

Now, this soup has been the nice surprise of the week! I have been ill at home these pas few days and, what better way to have warm comforting food and take in liquids and nutriments, than eating veggie soups? The pumpkin is the star of the autumn season – you see it everywhere and [+]

Aubergine spread

ZE aubergine spread (baba ghanoush)

Gimme aubergine, any time, in any form and any shape. This is ZE aubergine spread, also because combined with tahini to give it that special seedy flavour. The baked taste of the aubergine also adds flavour, so don’t be afraid to burn the aubergine slightly when baking. So, for one large bowl, you will need: [+]

Pasta à la macédonienne

Pasta à la macédonienne

Sirenje is a basic staple in any Macedonian (and Balkan) kitchen. No matter how hard I try to minimize buying food or ingredients that have animal origin, any time I visit my parents in Macedonia, I come back with a good half kilo of sirenje, a variety that is a mix from cow and goat milk. [+]

Matcha cocoa balls

Energy ball mania #4: Matcha matches cocoa (and almonds)

I know, it may be too much. But I can’t help it. Not only do I like energy balls, but when I make them, I want to have a choice, so I make different varieties at a time. So, here is number two of the weekend. For about 10, you will need: 110 grams date [+]

Tahini coconut balls

Energy ball mania #3: Tahini’s nuts for the coconuts

It is episode 3 in the series. I can’t get enough of the little power balls, so any time I find a new recipe for inspiration, I have to make them. I only don’t like sultanas as dried fruits, but anything else goes ! These babies are really really, I mean, really, really, seriously yummy. I [+]

almond-butter-choco-balls-6-2

Energy ball mania continues! The almond butters the cocoa

And so, the energy ball mania continues. I just made this, a batch to satisfy my daily chocolate cravings, tackle my energy slumps and meet my protein needs during all next week. Adapted from Paleocrust, they are full of raw goodness! So, for about 15 balls, you will need: 45 grams cashew nuts 45 grams walnuts 90 grams [+]
