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…

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…

Peanut Butter Slice

Vegan, refined-sugar free, gluten-free, low on carbs while packed with all the good fats and protein, these little slices are a lovely nutritious snack when you feel like a little treat. 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…

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 happen that we would go out to eat in the same place twice while travelling, but this place was just…

Multi-Grain Porridge

I’ve posted this recipe quite a while ago but have been giving it some different spins and found this version that I like best, so here it goes, the updated one… If you ever run out of breakfast ideas and you want to include some more whole grains in your diet you may want to give…

Vanilla Crescents

  Summer may be in full swing here in Australia, but if this is the first December, January, February etc.  you’ve spent living on the Southern hemisphere it’s hard to completely forget the little winter notions these months bare. And one of those traditions are definitely these almond/vanilla crescent cookies. Covered in the little bits of icing…

Crunchy, Healthy Granola

One of my favorite things on the breakfast menus here in Sydney are definitely all the million different granola/fruit/yoghurt combinations, and I’m always super inspired to see all the various ingredients the chefs pair together. But it all starts with a nice granola base, and what better way to have it whenever you like than…

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…
