Kleen green detox smoothie

Going through this blog and looking at the pages, I realize there are no drinks! Well, sharing this kleen green detox smoothie will rectify the situation a bit. I am just out of the end-of-the-year festivities and I feel a big urge to cleanse my body a bit of the excess that normally goes with [+]

brasserie-2e-art-pad-thai

A vegan pioneer: Brasserie 2ème Art

This is your typical French brasserie – but, finally not so much. Why? Cos the Brasserie 2eme Art has it all vegan! It plays with some well-known dishes (many of them not so French though), such as pasta bolognese, pizzas, pad thai, risotto, or, for dessert, French toast, chocolate cake, … while adapting them for us plant eaters. Their pizzas [+]

Almond ricotta

Cheesy-peasy vegan ricotta

OK, so I know that for most people who are flirting with plant-based food, a number one issue could be: How do I ever give up cheese? Cos most of you just looove cheese right? I admit, this has not really been my number one problem. I mean, I love my Macedonian sirenje, and some Italian cheeses [+]

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 [+]

Rosy cheeks beet crackers

Well, sorry, but these beet crackers don’t actually have beets . They only have beet water, that gives them that nice rosy cheeks colour.  In general, if you want to add rosy-red colour to your preparations, beetroot and the water in which you buy it (if you buy it cooked) is your answer. I am in a [+]

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 [+]

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 [+]
