Carrot, Chickpea & Tahini Salad

Light, fresh and easy to prepare meals are the way to go during the hot Summer days.

This salad includes a combination of…

Aubergine & Red Lentil Curry

During our last 2 weeks travelling around Austria and visiting family in Germany, our diet was completely different than usual and included much more meat than we are used too. The food was all great and we enjoyed trying out various traditional Austrian and Bavarian dishes. However, once we were back home, we were looking…

Muesli Breakfast Cookies

Breakfast is often said to be the most important meal of the day. For some people, like my husband, the day won’t start if he does not have a proper breakfast first thing in the morning. On the other hand, others like me find it hard to eat as soon as they wake up. From…

Vegan Seaweed Burger

Vegan burgers can be as interesting as you want them to be. You can experiment with various beans, lentils and other legumes as a base and then add a flavour twist to them. We were recently out and about and passed by a food truck selling seaweed burgers. We were intrigued, unfortunately we had already…

Homemade Teriyaki Sauce

A quick stir-fry dish is always great for mid-week dinner at home when I am tight on time. Our fridge is always stocked with fresh vegetables or you always find a packet of frozen vegetables which are also suitable for such a dish in my freezer. A packet of tofu and a packet of soba…

Vegan Beetroot Burgers

This hot weather we experienced during the past days called for BBQs at home to enjoy the evening breeze. Being back in Malta for a couple of days, we had the opportunity to enjoy these BBQs in the company of our family and friends. If you are looking for an alternative to your go-to burger,…

Vegan Chocolate Brownies

Intense fudgy chocolate brownies? Oh yes please! 😀 A chocolate treat is always my go-to dessert when I am making dessert for a crowd. It is a safe option because everybody loves chocolate. This rich and decadent chocolate brownie will make you go for another slice. This recipe uses aquafaba (water from canned chickpeas) instead…

Beluga Lentils & Sweet Potato Salad

Hot summer days are on the way and our diet starts to shift to lighter meals. Less time will be spent in the kitchen and that means looking for easier and less time consuming recipes. Salads are always a go-to meal. However, diversity is the key since we easily get tired of the same dish…
