Lentil Stew

My favorite time to make soups and stews is on the weekend. There isn’t much prep required and you can endlessly vary the vegetables, herbs, spices and legumes you use. In no time at all, you’ll have a hearty, delicious and healthy meal on the table. I often have people over to eat on Saturdays and Sundays, and... Read more

Black Bean Brownies

I once tried a black bean brownie in New York and enjoyed it so much that I started experimenting with recipes myself. My version is quite light, but the medjool dates give it sweetness and make it nice and chewy. I hope you enjoy these brownies as much as I do! Happy... Read more

Carrot-Top Pesto

Up until last year, I always just tossed carrot tops in my compost container, but now I make pesto out of them! I discovered that the tops are actually full of vitamins and minerals. Did you know that? I use the pesto on pasta, in soup or spread it on a cracker or slice of bread. Delicious! Tip: carrots... Read more

Ginger & Turmeric Carrot Soup

I also love stews, warm apple compote and hotchpotch. Not only do my taste buds get a huge boost from this kind of food, my digestion really benefits, too. This... Read more

Asje’s Potato Sambal 

Ok, I’m an honest person, this is not my recipe ; ) I got it from Astrid, my brother-in-law’s mother. Yep. In our family, we share each other’s recipes and I’m sharing it with you. Fun! This Surinamese-Javanese sambal is something that I like to eat with rice and sautéed vegetables, but according to Astrid,... Read more

Veggie Fritters

Yum, sustainable fritters! Almost all of the ingredients that I bought for this recipe are plant-based, local and in season. And if you also buy the products from a farmer that relies on a circular agriculture system, your fritters will be even more sustainable (truly next level ; )). From the time I was young, I have...

I add it to curries, oatmeal, risotto, smoothies, pasta,  soups, ice cream, cakes, pumpkin bars... What don’t I add it to? ; ) It adds a certain creaminess and a sweetness and softness to dishes. Winner! So... Read more

Fudgy Tahini-Caramel Brownies

I used to eat tahini on sourdough bread with honey and wheat germ (I know, it sounds crazy!). I loved it. These days, I like to eat this sesame paste on a cracker, but I also add it to dressings and to hummus, of course. But did you know that it’s also delicious in combination with chocolate? Yep! This... Read more
