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

Being mainly on a vegetarian diet, my fridge is always stocked with various fresh fruit and vegetables. As you may have noticed from previous blog posts, I…

Baked Falafel

Chickpeas remind me of my childhood. I remember there was an old lady, who used to come by my school at the end of the day, selling fresh chickpeas when they were in season. She would have picked them up from her family’s fields that same morning. She would be standing there, a couple of…
