Now that the terraces have opened again in Amsterdam, I have put together a list of my favorite vegan (friendly) restaurants and cafés for you. These are the places I go to most often. Unfortunately, some of my favorite restaurants have closed during the pandemic, but luckily there are still so many good options in the city – let me know in the comments if you’ve tried any of them!
The blue saga continues. After creating this beautiful Blue Mylk, I wanted to test a few more recipes with the blue spirulina powder I have at home. My mom sent me a recipe from a cookbook she recently bought, which is this blue cauliflower soup.
To be honest, I don’t like the taste of parsnip. Which is exactly why I love this recipe so much: the miso sauce has such a rich and savory taste that it overpowers the taste of the parsnips. This recipe is an easy vegan recipe for starters, and a delicious way to get your veggies in.
I feel pretty lucky that when I was little, my mom was cooking healthy, homemade food for me. Even though I wasn’t the biggest fan of veggies, there was one dish my mom made that I loved: spinach lasagne!
What I love about fall are not only the beautiful colors of the trees on a crisp and sunny fall afternoon, but also the fact that pumpkin and gingerbread are being added to menus again.
I’ve been working from home for 2 months now, and my eating habits are quite different than they were in the office. I still have breakfast between 8 and 9, lunch around 12 and dinner around 6 or 7, but the meals themselves and the snacks in between are different.
While it can make you feel amazing to eat healthy, and there are plenty of healthy AND delicious dishes, sometimes you are just craving something sweet or any kind of comfort food. If you still want to make it yourself, instead of just ordering a pizza, I have got you covered with these recipes!
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.
If you haven’t made this pasta sauce, you don’t know what tomato pasta is supposed to taste like. I used to be the kind of person that bought pasta sauce in a glass and heated it up in a pot. Yes, it’s better than pasta with ketchup, but the difference to THIS pasta sauce is just as much of a step upwards.
