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.
Last week, I could only eat soft foods because I had a wisdom tooth surgery. And since I was really craving chocolate and we had a few ripe avocados, I tried out this chocolate mousse.
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.
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 tried my first real ramen in Japan last year and it was an experience – sitting around the bar overlooking the kitchen, in the traditional Japanese way. The vegan broth was filled with ramen noodles, tofu, spring onions, herbs and vegetables, and tasted amazing. I knew I had to try making my own ramen once I returned home.
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.
The end of year holidays are over, and most of us have gotten into a rut of eating more than we need or want to eat. Also, January is a time to reset, to make plans for the coming year, and to start fresh. It’s a time to not only reset your mind, but also your body. And how better to do this than with a detox!
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.
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.
