Potatoes with dandelion dip

Last week I was a guest at the first-ever ‘Rabo Food Forward’ event. Food and agriculture entrepreneurs, millennials, and food experts gathered together to talk about how we can provide the Netherlands (and specifically Fryslân, the province I was born) with food in a sustainable way. During the Q&A, I shared... Read more

Black bean chili

This sweet and sour, one pan dish is put together in no time at all. It’s a crowd pleaser to be sure and I make it at least once every couple of weeks. I hope you like it... Read more

Chewy oat bars

For the past while, I’ve just been making the same few recipes over and over again on Sundays (prep day!) because I’ve been so busy (this really isn’t a good reason, is it?). But this past weekend, I managed to get into the kitchen to do a bit of experimenting. The recipe below worked out on the very first try,... Read more

Millet cauliflower stew

A recipe with MILLET! I like it the best when it’s creamy! We used to eat millet at home when I was a kid, often as an alternative to rice, served with tasty seasonal vegetables. To be honest, I had sort of forgotten about millet, but it’s come back into my life again as of late. The beautiful, yellow grains have... Read more

Appelcake

Last week I made this simple and moist cake with bits of apple baked into it. It’s great to have on hand for unexpected guests, but it’s even better for counteracting a ‘hangry’ state (a state of anger caused by lack of food) when you feel one coming on ; ) And given your reactions on social media, it’s...

Pumpkin pasta bowl

This kind of weather makes me crave comfort food. Tasty stews, mashes, chocolate chip cookies, matcha lattes… And this pumpkin bowl, too! After my book launch, I headed back into the kitchen to start experimenting again. This is the result! It’s a delicious dish that’s warming and satisfying and will most... Read more

Vegan Parmesan Cheese

This ‘cheese’ really does taste like Parmesan cheese, but it’s completely dairy free. It’s a great alternative if you, like me, are trying to eat as plant-based as possible or are lactose intolerant. It’s tasty in salads, as a topping for soup, pizza, pasta or as a spread on a cracker or slice of bread. The... Read more

Celery juice

I enjoy drinking juices – preferably homemade ones. Making juice yourself takes a bit longer than just buying it, but I believe the time investment is worth it. Juices give me energy and are (usually ;)) pretty tasty. They also make me glow. So, with my book launch coming up, I’ve started drinking a green juice on... Read more

Golden Milk Oatmeal

I love Golden Milk! While I tend to drink it in the evening to warm me up, I’ve found it’s just as good in the morning! This tasty breakfast is so addictive... It makes me even more excited to start my day. And, on top of that, this recipe is incredibly nutritious and healthy. Enjoy! Good to know –... Read more

Crunchy chickpeas

Seasoning chickpeas and baking them in the oven until they’re crispy transforms them into a surprisingly tasty snack. They’re a healthy alternative to chips or salted peanuts. They also make a tasty topping for soup or salads, if you ask... Read more

Zucchini-basil soup with roasted chickpeas

It’s already fall, but my mem still has a whole bunch of zucchini growing in her vegetable garden. I was at my parents’ house two weeks ago to dig up old photos for my new book and I couldn’t resist whipping up a batch of my tastiest zucchini soup while I was there! It is super simple and delicious served with... Read more

Hemp Smoothie

This smoothie contains hemp milk as a base ingredient, which is great for your brain and joints and helps produce the happiness hormone serotonin (same as cacao does). It's perfect for the vegetarians and athletes in our midst! P.S. You can order this stunning, golden stainless steel here in my... Read more

Noodles with tempeh & sugar snaps

I made this recipe a few weeks ago in between doing a bunch of other things and I was sold immediately. Last week, I worked on the fine tuning and now I’m ready to share it with you! Here it is, my very favorite noodle recipe with tempeh and crunchy sugar snap peas. I hope you like it too... Read more
