Sundried tomato hummus

As you may know, I am a true hummus lover! I make it regularly in all sorts of colors and flavors and not just because I think it tastes so good, but because it’s so easy to make and you can endlessly experiment by adding fresh ingredients to it. In no time at all, you’ve got a delicious spread for your crunchy... Read more

Chia jam

This is a sweet jam, free of refined sugar, with an extra boost from chia seeds. Every so often, I’ll make a jar that I’ll undoubtedly eat within a week. It’s tasty on a cracker, but it’s also great in oatmeal or as a topping for muffins, cake or on these breakfast... Read more

Almond butter

My favorite spread! I love this on a rice cake with sliced avocado. I also use nut butter as a topping for oatmeal or cookies. And sometimes I can't resist just dipping my finger directly in the... Read more

Beet tofu dip

Yumm! This beet tofu dip is one of my favorite spreads. Nowadays you can find several spread options in the supermarket but it is so easy to make it yourself. In no time you have your own delicious, homemade and healthy spread for on a crispy cracker or toasted spelt bread. Tip: dip it with raw veggies for a perfect... Read more

Hot guac!

This one is always a big hit! I’ll often make this avocado-based dip for a party, as an appetizer or for a BBQ with friends. The only downside? The bowl is usually empty within a minute or two. Everyone loves it! It’s also great on a crunchy cracker or rice cake for lunch or as a... Read more

Lentil tapenade

Falafel, hummus, vegetables cooked in the tagine and who can forget couscous… I’m a huge fan of Middle Eastern cuisine, though I’ve never actually been to the Middle East. In Arab cuisine, every meal is a feast and there’s always enough on hand to feed unexpected guests. You won’t get a plate, as eating... Read more

Red pesto

That’s hot! This red pesto is made with sundried tomato and a red chili pepper. What I love about pesto is not only that you can incorporate it into any number of dishes and salads, but you can also just spread it onto a cracker. This red pesto is my new favorite, second only to the classic green... Read more

Sunny Spread

Some people enjoy this weather and love being able to cocoon themselves in their cozy homes, but I always need to acclimatize to winter. It’s been even more difficult to adjust now that I’m back from my travels to places where it was 30-plus degrees every day. But what I really miss is a daily dose of sunlight.... Read more

Hummus

My parents know everything there is to know about healthy food. I have (literally) been spoon-fed healthy food my entire life. As a kid, everything we ate at home was local and Dutch, either from our own garden or from my uncle’s organic store, located about 20 kilometers from our home. There were no easy, pre-made...
