My love for books started young. My love for eating with my hands as well. Has the latter something to do with the first?
Are you going to start a veggie store?
Yep, I answered Mr. Eats, and I mixed all veggies together for this great Lunch salad with thyme infused spelt.
I felt like I became a fennel stem.
I promise, you won’t! Not even if you try this recipe for a no-waste Fennel Leek Soup.
Living in a new country is all about adapting. To a new language, a new culture, new dining out habits … well a new way of live. New food as well, as we didn’t have Meyer lemons in the Netherlands although there is something Dutch about them!
I used them in this Roasted beets with Meyer lemon honey glaze and I would love to eat it again tonight! Really.
I’m not good at throwing food away. I always have looooots of little pots and cups in my fridge with small amounts of food and halved veggies in my drawer. Next to that cabbage of lettuce that seems to live forever there. With all the condiments that surround them, I invent new dishes. That’s also how this recipe for a crunchy and mild spicy couscous salad with mustard seeds came into existence.
Time to make a confession: I never got really good at poaching eggs! And since I’m a schooled chef, that really is a thingy. But, I’ve found the best trick ever and poaching eggs never will be a hassle anymore.
I made up this recipe for Hoisin rice noodles with carrots and bok choy to try the poaching egg trick and it works. Both trick and recipe!
How to keep track of all those recipe(-idea)s you want to try? Finally I found a solution for that, tested it out and made up this (vegan) Lunch spelt salad with cucumber, nori and home made tofu-yogurt.
Leaving out meat or fish of your daily meals isn’t that difficult. This veggie burger made from eggplant and duqqa will prove it. I promise!
Have you noticed the small buttons below each recipe at the bottom of the page? They help you spread the
word recipe. Try it with this recipe Roasted sweet potato salad with pomegranate and baked ricotta! 😉
If I don’t know what to cook, I usually end up stirring some risotto. This recipe risotto with fennel and roasted tomatoes is one of my favorites.
