Fermented Barley Risotto

There are many epidemiological and experimental studies that suggest an important role for dietary fibre of cereals in the prevention of colon cancer. This recipe shows how you can reduce the gluten content in barley and create a meal that supports your health.

Clever Sour Dough Bread

Sour dough degrades the gluten (about 97%). However, when they use the flour at the end of the process there is no time to ferment, so 1. I use gluten free flour at the end of the process; 2. I let it raise in the fridge overnight for a longer period.

Lemon No-Cheese Cheesecake

When lemons are in season many of us look for the recipes. I think this is a good use of your harvest. Also, if you are allergic to the dairy you will enjoy this cheesecake, see the surprise ingredient yourself.

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.

No-cheese cheesecake.

I needed a way to trick myself with a pseudo cheesecake. And here it is, my solution recipe. If you are allergic to dairy products like me, or lactose intolerant, I hope you will like this cake. The only warning I’d like to make is that this cake is best when served with a tea,…

French  Fennel Soup

My challenge was to  somehow get grilled cheese and some crust into the soup without using a bread. I have come up with a few options. At first…

Berries in Snow

After discovering Freekah wholegrain and starring with my Freekah Salad, my son presented me with Freekah flour. What a wonderful taste and colour! I think it will be really cool to create something with Pistachio, as they are of the very similar colour. This flour triggered my inspiration for the Berries in Snow cake just…

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…
