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.

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…

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…

Chai Cake

This one was probably the only cake I’ve made that came from having a design that someone has requested and me trying to figure out how to recreate it best I can. I knew there have to be dehydrated coloured pears on the outside and chai as the main flavour. As it is my usual…

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…

And they are incredibly filling so a great go-to on a busy day, when you don’t have time to prepare your meals as well….

Buckwheat and Cocoa Biscuits

Besides being such a festive month December is also a month when, at least in Slovenia, biscuits are being baked even in homes they usually aren’t. Consequentally there is a lot of them going around and a lot of them being eaten. And of course the crunchy, buttery, sweet ones are lovely but after a…
