Thirty Minute Recipe

Super Greens Vegetable Soup

This super greens vegetable soup is my current favourite lunch dish. I make a huge pot of soup every week. I freeze the soup in small containers so I can enjoy it whenever I need to fix myself a quick, healthy and nourishing lunch. I typically use whatever green veggies I can find in my local organic supermarket or whatever veggies are left over in my fridge. I really loved the flavour of this soup, so here’s the recipe. It makes a big pot of soup, so you can freeze 6-8 portions.Read More

Beluga Lentil Kale Beet Stew

This Beluga Lentil Kale Beet Stew with apple is just what you need to warm up on a crisp Autumn day. It’s comfort food at its best. Fall is the season for slowing down. Even in the kitchen it’s important to slow things down. In the Fall our bodies require more warming foods as the temperature drops. This Beluga Lentil Kale Beet Stew has a warming effect and grounding effect on our bodies. Lentils and root vegetables like carrot, shallots and beets can help us to restore balance. When we transition from summer into fall, we can sometimes feel a little ungrounded or even a bit sluggish. Read More

Chioggia Beet Carpaccio

This Chioggia Beet Carpaccio with arugula and fresh goat’s cheese balls is such a beautiful and impressive starter. It’s bright and colourful and a real party for your eyes. The pink-white stripes of the chioggia beets contrast beautifully with the white goat’s cheese and green arugula. Due to the pickling the sturdy chioggia beets get a soft but still firm texture which creates a lovely bite in your mouth. The earthiness of the beets is transformed into a more subtle flavour, sweet, refreshing and tangy. The sweet, tangy flavour of the beets combines really well with the soft goat’s cheese, citrusy thyme and bitter arugula. Read More

Homemade Coconut Rice Milk

Easy and delicious homemade Coconut Rice Milk with only four ingredients: water, rice, coconut milk and a pinch of sea salt. I often buy my coconut rice milk but buying plant-based milks can get expensive. I have tried to re-create the flavours of my favourite, unsweetened Coconut Rice Milk and I am very happy with the result. The most important part is draining the milk through a very fine sieve or cheese cloth otherwise it can get grainy. The naturally occurring sugars in the rice and coconut milk give this Coconut Rice Milk a delicious sweet flavour. Read More

Halloumi Apricot Spelt Salad

This Halloumi Apricot Spelt Salad with an Orange Chili Vinaigrette is a super delicious and refreshing salad. It can be served as a full meal or as a nice appetizer. The Orange Chili Vinaigrette is fresh, sweet and just a little spicy, which adds a lovely heat to the salad. Recently, I have grown really fond of halloumi cheese. Halloumi is a salty, brined cheese, often made with sheep or goats milk. It’s low-fat and really tastyRead More

Sweet Potato Black Bean Tacos

These California-style Sweet Potato Black Bean Tacos are easy to make and utterly delicious. During my trip to California I fell in love with Cal-Mex, the Californian interpretation of Mexican food. On menus you see different styles and names, including Tex-Mex, Fresh-Mex or Baja Style Mexican Food. It’s healthy, fresh and vibrant food that tastes simply spectacular. Enjoy these crispy Sweet Potato and Black Bean Tacos. Serve them with pickles and fresh cilantro, Mango Pico de Gallo or Fresh Tomato Salsa or homemade guacamole.Read More

Cashew Raisin Chickpea Balls

These sweet Cashew Raisin Chickpea Balls are inspired by an Indian sweet called Besan Ladoo. They remind me a little bit of halva, the nutty and crumbly Middle-Eastern dessert usually made from tahini (sesame paste) or nut butter. The chickpea flour used for these balls gets a similar nutty flavour and crunchy texture once toasted. The cashew nuts are toasted along with the chickpea flour which gives the cashews an intense, caramel-like flavour. The raisins add a nice chewy and gooey bite. Read More

Sauerkraut Hotchpotch

This Sauerkraut hotchpotch is the perfect winter dish, hearty, sweet and comforting all at the same time. I have been looking for ways to make a healthier of the hotchpotches I grew up with and enjoyed so much as a kid. I have finally succeeded in making a version of hotchpotch that’s just as tasty and satisfying. This has become a favourite at our home. Read More

Fig and Fennel Rocket Salad

This Fig and Fennel Rocket Salad is simple but delicious. This salad is inspired by one of my new favourite breakfast, brunch and lunch place in town, Bakers and Roasters. It’s a cosy place in district de Pijp which serves wholesome breakfasts, excellent coffee, delicious salads, home-made pies and beautiful juices. Last time we went there they served a simple fig salad. I love simple food; it’s the ingredients that matter. And if you use beautiful fresh produce and high-quality ingredients, you can’t go wrong.

Rhubarb Strawberry Ice Cream

This Rhubarb Strawberry Ice Cream is absolutely delicious. It’s creamy, sweet and tangy and it beautifully expresses the natural flavors of the fresh, ripe strawberries and the rhubarb. I have roasted the rhubarb and macerated the strawberries which amps up their natural flavours making them even more delicious. Read More

Cherry Rhubarb Crumble

This Cherry Rhubarb Crumble is tangy, tart and slightly sweet and is absolutely delicious served hot with yoghurt or fresh ice-cream. With a fridge filled with rhubarb and the first tart cherries at my local store, I couldn’t resist making another crumble. This is a more simple version of my Rhubarb Peach Strawberry Crumble. It’s not as sweet as I wanted to enhance the tart flavours of both the rhubarb and the cherries.Read More

Mango Coconut Granola

This gluten-free Mango Coconut Granola with pecans, shredded coconut and dried mango is really delicious and super healthy! I serve it with coconut yoghurt or cashew nut yoghurt, fresh mango and some extra shredded coconut on top. I usually have smoothies for breakfast in Spring and Summer. They are healthy, quick and easy but ever since I have discovered these two raw vegan yoghurts I have been treating myself with a delicious bowl of yoghurt with home-made granola and fresh fruits on the weekend.

Super Power Bowl

This Super Power Bowl nourishes your body on many levels. Ever wondered what to eat after a long work-out ? Well, this is it. Recently, I have gotten into the habit of doing endurance work-outs on a rowing machine. I have noticed that I need to feed myself differently than after my usual yoga practice. Right after my work-out I drink some coconut juice to rehydrate. And then about 1 hour after my work-out I have what I call my Super Power Bowl. It contains everything you need to boost your recovery and your performance as an athlete. Read More
