Red Lentil ‘Meatballs’

Lentils are a staple in my diet. They are very versatile and can be used in salads, curries and patties amongst other things. Most of the time I buy them in bulk… besides that it is cheaper, it involves less packaging which is better for the environment. The shop assistant is always amazed and asks:…

Grilled Fennel & Asparagus Salad

As Spring time comes, there is a shift in the produce available on the market. Spring is the season for light and fresh vegetables and this starts to be reflected in our meals too.

Healthy Apple Cake

A cake with no butter, no oil and very little added sugar that tastes delicious? Oh yes please! 🙂 This cake is a healthier alternative to the classic apple pie. With the amount of apples it contains it can barely be considered as a sweet… a slice of this cake can almost count towards one…

Lentils Pancakes

Let me start by admitting that the first time I made these lentil pancakes was by mistake… Here’s an explanation why! 🙂 After a day at the office, I arrived home and started to prepare our dinner. Lentil patties were on the menu for the day so I started by cooking the lentils. In the…

Zucchini & Feta Cheese Fritters

Zucchini are one of my favourite vegetables. On their own, they can be boring and tasteless, but add them to various dishes, spice them up, and they absorb the flavours and juices from other ingredients and they tell a very different story. In this regard, they can be very versatile and can be included in…
