Sweet Potato Spiced Porridge with Baked Pears

I’m hopefully publishing this recipe right in that sweet spot when Melbourne weather is still showing some wintery traits, and all my friends and family in Slovenia are getting their first taste of Autumn. And be it winter or autumn, you can’t go wrong with porridge. I mix a couple of different seeds in here…

Gluten-Free Buckwheat Granola

Buckwheat features in many different traditional dishes in Slovenia (mainly savoury), but it’s only recently that I’ve tried activated buckinis for the first time, and they are just such a delicious addition to any smoothie bowl, chia pudding, or anything that needs a little crunch. I luckily don’t have issues with having gluten, but when…

Beetroot & Sweet Potato Gnocchi

Not sure how many people there are that don’t love pasta, I certainly do. And even though I could probably have all your more typical shapes like spaghetti, penne, fusilli, and so on pretty much daily, gnocchi are a nice change, offering a completely different texture, and since you can add different root veggies into…

Chocolate Covered Dates with Almond Butter

A great “back-up” dessert to have in the fridge, which tastes incredibly indulgent but is made with such great and healthy ingredients that you shouldn’t even feel like you’ve just had dessert. You only need a couple of pantry ingredients and it shouldn’t take more than 10min. It ticks all the different diet requirement boxes…

Strawberry & Rhubarb Tart

I’ve only discovered the full charm of rhubarb a couple of months ago, when I couldn’t resist buying this most beautiful looking bunch at a local farmer’s market. First time using it, I made a simple jam, and we’ve ever since been hooked on the tanginess, and of course, the bright appealing red helps as…

Sourdough Brioche Buns

Having a boyfriend obsessed with Egg & Bacon Rolls, and even with all the amazing bakeries around us, surprisingly scarce offering of brioche buns, making these soon became a must. They are quick (relative to other types of enriched sourdough dough) and easy to shape and make, and pretty forgiving if your timing isn’t exactly…

Sourdough Bagels

Another round of snap lockdown here in Melbourne called for some more indulgent breakfast options, and bagels were number 1 on the list this time. There’s something so addictive in that chewy boiled crust of theirs. As they are made with a sourdough starter you will need to start prepping them a couple of days…

Berry Crumble

The simplest healthy crumble with a juicy berry base.

Red Sauerkraut

One of the biggest discoveries or things I really gotten into this year, that have now became an add-on to almost every savoury meal and I honestly hardly imagine ever not having them on my plate, are all the different pickled and fermented veggies. It’s something that has always been a part of my life,…
