Spicy Lentil Burgers

These burgers are truly a taste of Summer on a cold winter day. Served with a quick refreshing tomato salsa, crunchy lettuce leaves and melted goat cheese, they are the perfect combo of taste and textures. I have used beluga lentils in this recipe. However, I have also tried it with red and brown lentils…

Homemade Burger Buns

I have made these burger buns on several occasions. Although the process is somewhat lengthy, they are easy to prepare and actual baking time takes only 15 minutes. The best thing is that you can enjoy them straight from the oven! ๐Ÿ˜€ Any leftover burgers buns can be stored in the freezer for a couple…

Mexican Lasagna

During the past months, I have been testing new recipes while also enjoying some of our favourites which you can find on this blog. We really enjoy recipes with Mexican flavours, and think they are great at any time of day. We have enjoyed many such dishes, from breakfast burritos to vegan tacos, and the…

Vegetarian Moussaka

Recipes for moussaka vary a lot between countries and places of origin. It is a dish popular around the Levant, Balkans, Turkey and Greece. Each country has its own way of preparing and serving it. My recipe below is not traditionally from one place or the other and I guess my version is a combination…

Roasted Cauliflower Casserole

The change in season also brings about a change in the way we eat. We look forward to more soups, curries, casseroles and other heartwarming dishes. For this dish, forget steamed cauliflower, which I personally find is tasteless, boring and often doesn’t smell very appetizing. Here, it is all about layers of flavour, which can…

Classic Apple Pie

During our holiday in Bavaria a couple of weeks ago, apple season was at its peak. Our family there has a couple of apple trees in their garden and the fruit was pretty abundant. ๐Ÿ๐ŸŽ Seeing all this, I asked whether I could prepare an apple pie for them and they gladly agreed. Apple pie…

Carrot, Chickpea & Tahini Salad

Light, fresh and easy to prepare meals are the way to go during the hot Summer days. I am always trying out new stuff and trying to diversify our choice of ingredients to keep things interesting and delightful and this recipe became a favourite over the past few months. 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…
