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…

Baked Samosas

A samosa is a pastry pocket with a spicy filling inside which is then deep fried or baked. They are stuffed either with meat or vegetables, and flavoured with a variety of spices.

Maltese Ross il-Forn – Baked rice

Ross il-forn in Maltese literally translates to baked rice. It is a popular rice dish in Malta and can be considered the ultimate Maltese comfort food. Although it takes some time to prepare the dish from scratch, there is nothing too complicated about it. Once at it, I like to make extra portions and freeze…

Feta & Jalapeño Cornbread

A while back, I posted a recipe for a simple Savoury Cornbread. It is a recipe that I made over and over again. It is great for packed lunches or a simple lunch on a lazy Saturday afternoon. It is easy to prepare and can be prepared in less than an hour. I have since…

Indian Summer Salad

During these hot Summer days I prefer to eat light and enjoy easy to prepare recipes more than ever. Most importantly, they have to be fresh and packed with flavour. Over the past year, I have discovered Bhel Puri Chaat at a local Indian place in Malta. It is light, crisp, tangy, full of flavour…

Hummus is traditionally made with chickpeas, sesame seed paste (aka tahini), olive oil, lemon juice, garlic and spices. It comes from the Middle East however it is popular all over the…

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,…

Tomato Galette

You know Summer is very close by when you start noticing a variety of tomatoes at the local farmers market. This is what happened last weekend 🙂 At that instant I knew that I had to get my hands on some of them to prepare a delicious summer-and-sunshine-on-a-plate (aka tomato) galette. This is a simple…

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…
