We’re in the middle of asparagus season so it’s about time we created a recipe to shine some light on this delicious veggie. There different types of asparagus, but for this recipe we’re using the green ones. Did you know that they’re actually the same. White asparagus are covered so they won’t produce any chlorophyll, which is what turns them green.…
It’s spring but let’s be honest, isn’t spring just a pre summer party filled with flowers and summery dishes? So it’s time for us to make some more refreshing summer dishes, like these colourful salsas jam packed with flavour!
These salsas make use of both savoury and sweet, using veggies and fruits to create a delicious well balanced topping/dip for bread, nachos or anything your heart desires. You could also prepare this as a side for your next bbq party, bring something unique to the table….
Throughout the years tofu went from one of my least favourite foods to one of my favourites! Growing up my father did his best to raise us on a macrobiotic diet, but I wasn’t feeling it, nope this boy didn’t want boring tofu. This I hear often as my lifestyle took a drastic turn and now I’m sure my body is about 30% tofu. Just kidding folks, I eat a wide variety of foods!
Look the soy debate is an ongoing one, but I personally…
There are many types of rice and even more ways of preparing them, infusing the rice with delicious flavours is one of my favorites, so of course I’d have to share one of these recipes with you. This will be a nice change from your regular plain rice.
In many countries spiced rice dishes are a staple, and in Suriname it is no different. Although this dish isn’t a traditional Surinamese dish, it still draws inspiration from its diversity in cuisines (especially the indian) and bold flavours, to create this delicious and comforting dish. …
My favorite foods tend to be leftovers, there’s something so satisfying about warming up leftover food, or creating leftover dishes, they’re quick and tasty ways to not spend to much time in the kitchen. Besides that I really do not like wasting food.
Then there are dishes where leftover ingredients are almost necessary, like…
Today I’m sharing a recipe in collaboration with Magioni, whom I’ve been working with last month to create some delicious vegan recipes to go with their delicious pizza crusts. This post is not sponsored.
You might already know Magioni from their cauliflower pizza’s. Magioni just launched their new pumpkin pizza crust, which goes perfect with the new season and to celebrate I decided to make an easy and fun recipe to go along this crust. The crusts are available at AH in the Netherlands, but don’t worry, if you don’t have excess to this crust you can make it on any pizza crust available.
The reason I decided to team up with Magioni is because I saw an opportunity to spread even more awareness on a vegan diet/lifestyle. By creating a few fun and creative recipes for them to share I know for sure that there will be many people introduced to a more conscious way of eating.
With Autumn being around the corner it’s time to reintroduce some comforting foods! What am I saying, I’ll have dishes like this in the middle of summer, still they are your best friends during fall and winter. This dish is made for all those beet haters out there, because I’m pretty sure that even you won’t hate this curry! I mean look how comforting this dish is, even teddy is having a moment!
As an adult one of my favorite dishes are curries, this is something that hasn’t changed from my childhood, therefore these dishes instantly transport me to another time. Curries are, for me, some of the most comforting dishes, but there’s another comfort food that’s high on the list. Pasta.
Keen-wah, will you ever leave my teeth? Quinoa is simple one example of the abundance of protein found in a plant-based food. It’s a complete protein that’s actually a seed and not a grain, so if you have a hard time digesting grains, quinoa could be a great alternative for rice or couscous. Now if they’d only stop hiding between our teeth, am I right!?
Now with summer nearing and and BBQ season around the corner it’s about time to bring out the quinoa salads. This salad makes a perfect side dish to any food centred gathering, it’s light, fresh and simple.
You can never have enough bean stew recipes right? They’re not only delicious and combined with rice a perfect protein, but they are also very nice to prep for days ahead! This batch gave me about three big meals, so perfect for those evening when you’re just a bit to tired to cook. Beans and rice are also quite cost-effective meals, just add whatever veggies you prefer and you’ve got yourself a perfect dish!
These type of meals are also great for those people who stress about proteins, just eat some rice and beans.
You can play with this recipe to make it your own, for this batch I used carrots to add a bit of sweetness, but why not try adding (sweet) potatoes, peas, or corn? Maybe you don’t have kidney or black beans on hand, no problem, you can use whatever bean you have on hand or prefer! Cilantro might taste like soup to you, don’t worry you can add whatever herb you like, try adding some parsley or basil. Well you catch the drift right, just have fun with it!
You can use this bowl as a little inspo for how to have to serve this dish, but just adding it over rice (find recipe for unicorn rice here) and maybe some spinach will be good enough for me. You could also eat it with some flatbread or stuff them inside some potatoes if you’re feeling adventurous!
You could even use it as a spread on some hearty flax crackers, there are no rules when it comes to how you have your food, right!?
