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

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

Limonada Suiça

I recently enjoyed this wonderful Brazilian lemonade, Limonada Suiça, at one of my favourite breakfast/brunch places in Amsterdam. It’s very easy to make and it’s incredibly refreshing on a warm summer day. You do need a solid blender that’s up to the task as you’re blending a whole lime (preferable organic) skin and all. By using the whole lime, including its peel, you are benefiting from all the lime’s nutritional benefits. Most of the vitamin C is found, not in the juice, but in the peel. I am not a big fan of sweet lemonades but I love the distinctive bitter flavour of Limonada Suiça. Read More

Strawberry Rhubarb Parfait

This vegan Strawberry Rhubarb Parfait is rich and indulgent and contains all my favourite summer flavours. Strawberries and rhubarb are in season now and I cannot get enough of them. Rhubarb is quite tart and tangy on its own. The best way to eat rhubarb is to add ripe sweet fruits like strawberries, apples, peaches or cherries. Rhubarb and strawberry is a classic combination. This time I made a rhubarb-strawberry compote to add to my breakfast parfait with yoghurt, overnight oats and granola. I love all the different flavours and textures. Read More

Peanut Butter Chocolate Fudge

This super easy Peanut Butter Chocolate Fudge melts in your mouth and . It’s creamy, buttery, rich and delicious and made 100% without refined sugar and dairy. I have added just a little sea salt flakes to give the fudge a slight salted caramel flavour. The chocolate peanut butter flavours lingers in your mouth after taking a bite. It feels decadent. Yet you could argue that this melt-in-your-mouth fudge is healthy, even very healthy. Read More

Vegan Carrot Halva

This Vegan Carrot Halva is based on a popular Indian dessert called gajar ka halwa. It resembles a sweet rice pudding or rice porridge. For this carrot porridge, grated carrots are cooked very slowly, until you get a mushy, porridge-like consistency. Carrot halva is traditionally made with milk, ghee and cream. For my Vegan Carrot Halva I have used coconut rice milk and coconut oil instead of dairy. It tastes absolutely amazing served warm with a generous scoop of ice-cream and some roasted almonds and coconut flakes on top. Read More
