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 [+]

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 [+]

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 [+]

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 [+]

Choco zucchini muffins

The leanest choco (& zucchini!) muffins

I made these a few times and they get better and better. I love the fact that they are moist and very chocolate-y, and therefore so so indulgent, and at the same time guilt-free. They are excellent when you have that chocolate craving (again! I have it quite often, hence my several chocolate-based recipes, check [+]

Veggie sesame stir fry

Sesame veggie stir-fry on millet

I do not have anything in my fridge at this moment. Aie! Financial austerity measures, flat buying obliges. So, it is the end of the month, meaning the end of food stock in my fridge, freezer and cupboards. Making a tabula rasa. But, aren’t we at our most creative when we are are put under great limitations? [+]

Matcha granola

Greening the breakfast: matcha granola

Here is an excellent breakfast recipe, gluten-free, refined sugar-free, and full of nutriments and energy to last you through the morning. As it uses rice syrup, which is a slow-releasing sweetener, it is also adapted to all of you who want to cut on your sugar intake and/or gradually quit sugar. I don’t normally take the [+]

Spice-full chickpea, broccoli & cauliflower spelt

Here is another one of those Sunday recipes that I make to be able to cover for a couple of lunches at the office. It is easy to eat before the computer (I know, it is a nasty habit but these days a necessity for me), and totally healthy, so even if a tend to [+]

Snickers bars

Are-they-for-real-healthy Snickers bars

This is a recipe adapted from Naturally Ella, whose posts I receive regularly and I always find very inspiring. It is Sunday and I have just tested it, cos today is a day when I think of what food might be best to get me through what will be a full and stressful week at the office. These [+]

superfood-bread

The bread gets super

One of my favouroite Sunday afternoon entertainments are testing new vegan recipes. A few days ago I got Ella Woodward’s book Deliciously Ella (check out her great blog), from a very cherished friend, and I have been very excited about testing its recipes. Now, this recipe just smiled at me and I smiled right back at [+]
