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.

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 [+]

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 [+]
