Kimchi is a Korean staple, which has found its way into Western cuisine thanks in part to its health benefits. The fermented cabbage not only has a positive benefit on the digestive system, but is also extremely delicious.
This creamy, sweet and slightly spicy tomato soup is the perfect comforting dinner for me during this lockdown. The soup is healthy – packed with carrots, tomatoes and chili flakes – and the grilled cheese sandwich is the indulgent sidekick, which actually takes the stage once you take a bite.
This split pea soup is easy to make and packed with healthy vegetables. For the pictures, I left the soup very thick, more like a purée, but you can add more water to give it a thinner consistency.
My mom says you shouldn’t eat raw broccoli, but I still do it. 🙂 Most of the time just dipped in hummus, but now also in the form of this salad. The apple & cranberry add sweetness and the red onion makes it a bit spicy. I ate this as a main meal, but you can easily make it as a side for another dish.
Quesadillas are definitely one of my favorite “fast foods”. They are easily made, pretty delicious and require only a few ingredients. Sometimes, however, things get a little fancier and I stuff the quesadillas with something more unusual. Like pumpkin. Or sweet potato (recipe here).
Although I find myself eating much healthier than before I was vegan, I do crave the occasional “junk food” now and then. For those exact situations, these tempeh nuggets come in pretty handy.
When summer is as hot as it is here in Germany this year, you don’t really feel like eating or cooking heavy meals. This italian appetizer is easy to make and tastes awesome on a warm summer evening. It can be eaten as a snack or a whole meal.
