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 [+]

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 [+]

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 [+]

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 [+]

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 [+]

Cooling the day off: detox fruit coolers

Ah, summertime in Paris… Days are long, luminous, people are joyful, and these past few ones have been so warm that one thinks quite often about chilling out and chilling oneself. Well, fruit coolers are great for that! Fun to make and colourful, I always have one (or both) of them in my fridge. And, they [+]
