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,…

Beetroot & Cacao Pancakes

Having a pancake-obsessed boyfriend means they make for a very common breakfast item, especially now that slow breakfasts at home have become quite a regular occurrence. It also means that the classic batter has been done many times, and is now feeling kinda boring so I’ve been playing with different takes on it – the…

Sticky Sourdough Cinnamon Scrolls

These are not your traditional cinnamon scrolls but more like a cross between walnut sticky buns, where the stickiness comes from maple syrup, and cinnamon scrolls. As I am trying to do most of my pastry and bread baking using sourdough starter , I applied this with this recipe as well. The recipe is very…

Vegan Macadamia Fudge

Realising there’s no way of winning there, I’ve stopped fighting my evening sweet-tooth cravings a while ago but I do still like to keep those after-dinner treats on the healthier side, without crazy amounts of sugar, especially with these snacking-prone times we find ourselves in (aka lock-downs and such). The Peanut Slice and the super…

Roasted Cauliflower and Beetroot “Salad”

Not sure if this one should be called a salad or just a tray of roasted veggies with a creamy tahini dressing and different toppings, but “a rose by any other name…” – regardless of what it actually is, it’s super delicious, and can easily be a stand-alone, clean meal, that is as tasty when…

Quick Oat and Quinoa Porridge

I swear there is porridge hiding underneath all the toppings, I just can’t help but get carried away when sprinkling nuts, nut butters, berries and all the other delicious crunchy stuff on top of porridge, smoothies or chia puddings. But the base, aka porridge in this case, is just as delicious as everything else, and…

Vegan Dark Chocolate with Salt Flakes

This chocolate only takes approximately 5 minutes to make and requires only 5 ingredients. If you’re a fan of darker, less sweet chocolates, it will definitely hit that chocolate craving spot, while still being very clean, ingredients wise. It’s super low in sugar content too, a little splash of maple syrup is all you’ll need….

Almond and Cranberry Biscotti

Growing up in Slovenia, being surrounded by many countries with such rich food traditions definitely has many perks, as many of them are only a short drive away. Italy, with all its goodness, is definitely one of them, and being able to finish a meal with some crunchy almond biscotti… These biscuits are so comforting…

Sourdough Hot Cross Buns

Easter has come and gone so this recipe is coming a bit too late, but as we are all spending a lot of the extra time we have on our hands at home, and because these are also absolutely delicious, there is nothing wrong making them pretty much any time of the year. It was…

Vegan Banana Bread

This recipe ticks many boxes for a sweet and indulgent yet quite healthy and wholesome breakfast. It is vegan but you can easily substitute some vegan ingredients for their non-vegan equivalents if you do wish so. Even though it is made mainly from ingredients considered healthy and contains very little sugar and added oil it…

Water Kefir

People mostly know kefir as the probiotic milky drink, but there is actually another type of kefir grains that are fed by any type of sweetened water, producing a drink similar to kombucha. I personally much prefer the water kefir drink, as it does not feed your candida, which consumption of kombucha may, kefir also…

Smoked Beetroot Salad

Inspired by Ottolenghi’s recipe for a smoked beetroot salad, incorporating some other stuff lying around the fridge and pantry, this colourful salad turned out to be quite a perfect autumn dinner and a good way of using any not-so-fresh sourdough you may have lying around. Smoking the beetroots does require a couple of extra steps…
