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…

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,…

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…

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….

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…
