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,…

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…

Pickled Red Onions

Pickled and lacto-fermented veggies are such a simple way to add some freshness and a little tangy kick to pretty much any dish. For the last year my fridge has had pretty much a whole shelf dedicated to jars of various veggies, some preserved by pickling and some by natural fermentation. I’ll leave the fermentation…

Beetroot Hummus

This beetroot hummus is a bit of a spin on the classic one and a great thing to have on hand for a little healthy snack with veggie sticks, to spread on your toast (that + avocado on top is just perfect) or to add some nice bright color to your favorite bowl. And because…

The El-Nido Salad

It was a couple of years ago, on the Palawan island in the Philippines, where travelling with my family we have stumbled upon this amazing little cafe/restaurant in the town of El-Nido. Almost never does it happenĀ that we would go out to eat in the same place twice while travelling, but this place was just…

Pumpkin-Filled Ravioli with…

…home-made tomato sauce, crispy sage, pancetta and chesnuts and topped with some parmesan and buffalo mozzarella. Oh and the pasta dough alone has a bit of beetroot in for some extra flavour and color. Talk about all the amazing autumn ingredients combined with a touch of summer. The ravioli alone are a whole another topic…

Tomato Soup

Tomatoes, mozarella, olive oil, prosciutto… Just a few of the reasons why Italy is pretty amazing;) And while during summer, there hardly passes a day without these ingredients, in the colder months, great juicy tomatoes are pretty hard to come by. And this delicious tomato soup is just one of the ways to get a…

Oven-Roasted Veggies

When I was little I never had imagined I will ever eat vegetables voluntarily let alone crave them. But this one right here is one of my favorite meals these days, especially when I’m making a lunch or dinner only for myself. It is healthy, super easy, there is so many options of which veggies…

Sun-Dried Tomato Pesto

If anyone has ever said you can’t make muscles in the kitchen they definitely hadn’t tried making this pesto. šŸ˜‰ It will make your arms hurt quite a bit (well or maybe I just need to do some more push-ups) but it’ll be so worth it – sun-dried tomatoes, parmesan, nuts, olive oil… I mean…

Ratatouille

Probably not as good as the one in the cartoon, but definitely worth giving a try. It is definitely one of the best (healthy) things I’ve got acquainted with while living in Belgium (sorry all the other dishes, but the waffles definitely win) and I’m so glad I had, as it’s super delicious and helps…

Fresh Vietnamese Spring Rolls

Summer is here and there is really not many things more appropriate for a light, fresh summer day lunch as these amazing, fresh Vietnamese spring rolls. You just need a few simple ingredients, some cutting, a bit of rolling practice, and some nice dipping sauces and you’re good to go. And no worries if at…
