I know it’s March and I should have posted this recipe in October, but hey – we’re back to fall weather in Amsterdam, so why not give this fall recipe a try? This recipe for vegan pumpkin soup is so basic, you can’t fail.
I was sick last week, and basically lived off of fruits, vegetables and ginger until I started feeling better. Instead of taking medicine, I gave my body rest and healthy food and that was all it needed to fight the cold.
It’s October! Fall has officially started, the temperatures have cooled off and I am writing this post from underneath a blanket on the couch, with a cup of hot tea in hand, a candle burning on the table and a dark & chilly evening unfolding outside.
If you’re still looking for a breakfast for Christmas, I have the perfect suggestion for you. These gingerbread pancakes are based on the first gingerbread pancake recipe I posted, but I topped them off with some fried cinnamon apples & pieces of gingerbread. They taste like Christmas on a plate! 🙂
I have to admit, I’m not quite ready for fall yet (granted I didn’t have a real summer), but I’m willing to see the positives and embrace the season! I can wear my nice coats again, snuggle up on the couch with a cup of tea on a rainy day, go to museums on the weekends and savour warm soups & curries!
Winter time is soup time for me. And even though I don’t crave soup all too often, I sometimes need a warm bowl to nourish my body when it gets colder. This creamy potato soup hit the spot just right, as it integrates my favorite food – potatoes – in a healthy way.
As soon as the leaves start falling and the air is getting crisp, I start looking forward to pumpkin soup, mulled wine & gingerbread and cuddled up mornings with warm oatmeal in bed. Good thing I have the perfect recipe for that. 🙂
This past easter, we were discussing what to have as an easter meal. Of course, any traditional dish involving meat was off the table and we couldn’t think of a particular dish that seemed fitting for easter. So we ended up just cooking what we felt like eating and it turned out delicious!
Okay friends, here comes a classic Franconian dish, which I used to love before going vegan. Franconia, the part of Germany I am from, is a region in the north of Bavaria (which is in the south of Germany). “Sauerbraten” is a hearty and opulent meal, which you would eat on Sundays or holidays like Christmas.
When I think of prunes, I always have to think of Louis Litt from the show ‘Suits’ because he likes to drink his “prunies”. This warming winter breakfast incorporates prunes in a different way, but I’m sure Louis would enjoy it equally!
