Recently I’ve been making this capsicum salad dressing as often as I can. It is super easy and you can sneak quite a few veges in if you like. The capsicum adds a delicious flavour. It works for a classic salad as well as potato or pasta salad, and it also makes a delicious addition to a Buddha bowl. Continue reading
This is one of my most favourite, easy-as recipes. It is super versatile and has the potential to give many dishes a good lift. Continue reading
Yes, yes, it is still plum season here in New Zealand and I’m still working on ways to make use of these buckets and buckets of plums that I got from friends. Continue reading
This recipe is based on one of my mom’s dishes. Whenever she had too many beans (or zucchini, or cucumber or…) she would make soup Continue reading
There are so many things that I love about summer! One of them are peppers! Continue reading
It was time for a new no-bake-cake. I’m really into blueberries lately. So I thought I’ll try them in this kind of dish. Continue reading
I’ve created quite a few no-bake-cakes already – but not a chocolate version. With my love for all things chocolate, it is a bit unusual 😉 Continue reading
No, there is no end in sight yet. I have a few more ideas for my no bake cake series 🙂
This time I’ve tried a combination of chocolate and vanilla – because I love them both! And I’ve added some sunflower seeds. They add a very nice nutty flavour. Gluten-free, vegan and without added sugar. Yum! 🙂 Continue reading
I was so happy when I came across a good sized wild blackberry patch! As it naturally comes with mean thorns (and some gorse as immediate neighbor) I had to come back with proper boots, thick pants and my pretty assistant to pick a good amount. I already dreamed of creating another no bake cake with them.
So, here we are, another recipe out of my no bake cake series is ready – and I’m very happy how these berries created this awesome flavour! Worth the scratches and and stiff backs 😉 Continue reading
The strawberries in my garden are starting to slow down. So, before they’re gone, it’s time to celebrate by using these pretty little fruits in a special dish! 🙂
If you don’t have a vege garden yet I can only recommend to start one! The most easy things to grow are tomatoes and silverbeet, just to name a few. And my silverbeet is thriving this season!
So I have tried another dish with this yummy leafy green: a creamy silverbeet mushroom sauce – perfect with pasta! 🙂 Continue reading
It seems to me like the year 2013 was the year of vegan & raw cheese cakes. I must admit, they do look yummy. But I like a bit of fruit to go with them, so I started experimenting. The first creations that I did need a bit more fine tuning before I can share them here with you.
I just love summer time! There is such an array of veges available! So I’ve been making this dish a few times – you can use pretty much any veges. My favourite basics are onion, carrot, courgette, capsicum and eggplant. And the cheesy cashew cream really adds to it 🙂
If you don’t really like eggplant you might change your mind after you’ve tried this! 🙂
…and suddenly there was another cauliflower ready to harvest in the garden. I also pulled out a few of my winter carrots – and they looked perfect!
With a few mushrooms and cashew nut cream added; it turned into a nice simple curry. Yum! 🙂
