Vegan AliOli.

Once I tried an amazing AliOli in Spain, only in one town and one restaurant. Nowhere else in Spain I could find anything similar by taste and texture. And, it’s been five years of me trying to reproduce it. Well, I couldn’t. But I learnt to make so many mayonnaise variations! I perfected my technique…

Pea and Mushroom Risotto

A nice comforting risotto that is full of flavours and low in carbs. Three different combinations in this recipe create three types of risotto. My favourite is the Freekah with lots of wild mushrooms.

Chocolate Truffles.

Please don’t judge my Chocolate Truffles by their look. These chocolates are simple but they are so divine! If you see the ingredients, you may agree they are also weight loss chocolates.

Freekah Salad

If you embraced Quinoa years ago, you will love Freekeh/Freekah. It is packed with prebiotics and nutrients, has lots of fibre (about 10%), high protein content for a grain (about 15%). The only thing we need to be aware of is that Freekah is a wheat grain, and it does contain some gluten. Although its…

Vegan Gluten-Free Sour Dough Bread

With modern medicine capabilities, we can easily identify our food allergies and intolerance. Very common one is Gluten. However, by excluding gluten and wheat, on the supermarket shelves, we find gluten free substitutes which are very high in starch and don’t taste as good. This recipe below suggests an alternative bread that is healthy. Although…

Summer Beetroot Soup

Beetroot juice is very powerful, and it is taken in small dozes, about 70 ml a day. ‘Beetroot juice during periods of psychological stress protects against cold symptoms. Preliminary evidence suggests particular benefits in asthma, which could translate into reduced asthma exacerbations due to respiratory…

Hemp Seed Falafel

When I think of Hemp Seed now I have association with the words: Fatty acids, Protein and Minerals. It is amazing how well balanced the nutrition of the hemp seed is. It is one of a few plants where we get not only high level of protein but also a good level of fatty acids,…

Pumpkin and Chia Jam

Yet another Pumpkin recipe! If you’ve managed to quit the sugar or trying to, but craving for a jam, try this recipe. You will love it! Maybe you have some baked pumpkin left from Pumpkin Bread recipe, then this will be a great use for it. This recipe also contains chia seeds; such a good source of…

Sesame Tuna

This is a very simple and easy way to enjoy a fresh, high quality piece of tuna. I find, it is a perfect entrée meal to share or a snack for two on the weekend. I was served a similar dish in one of the Melbourne’s restaurants years ago and since, I have been using…

Breakfast Cookies

I created Teff cookies and I found them magical. First, one cookie keeps you going for a few hours and also, they are great for weight management. Besides Teff’s high-fibre and high-protein qualities, which were mentioned in the previous posts for Teff recipes, this super grain also contains vitamins K, B1, B2, B3, B6 and C,…
