Jackfruit Tacos (Vegan Pulled Pork)

I’ve been eating ripe jackfruit (aka Katahar, nangka) for as long as I’ve been going to the Côte d’Ivoire. It’s fresh tasting with a nice, light sweetness. I’ve also come across the ‘green’ version in (mostly vegan) restaurants where it tends to be served as an alternative to ‘pulled pork’. Always... Read more

Soba Noodles with Broccolini and Tempeh

I thought it might be time for a tasty, comfort-food recipe. And maybe one that’s a little sweeter than usual because sweetness is something we can all really use right now in this bizarre time. But it’s also super nutritious! Broccolini (a cross between broccoli and the Chinese cabbage variety, gai lan) adds some... Read more

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

Ginger & Turmeric Carrot Soup

In the fall and winter months, I tend to enjoy warming food like delicious bowls with curry, soups and oatmeal with the tastiest spices and herbs most of all. 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...

Creamy pasta with basil and spinach

I crave pasta at least once a week, usually after a long workday… And then I’ll have seconds. Delicious! I made this recipe a few days ago and thought it was so tasty that I’d share it with you right away. Don’t forget to soak the cashews. It makes the sauce even creamier.... Read more

Miso-coconut noodle soup

Sometimes I really crave a tasty, filling bowl with all sorts of vegetables and noodles. It can be so satisfying. I’ve incorporated miso paste into this recipe. After travelling through Japan, I started experimenting more with it. It is a fermented bean paste, made with soy and salt, and sometimes brown rice or... Read more

Crispy tempeh with nut butter

I love tempeh! It has a lovely, nutty flavor, it is an easily absorbed source of protein and it is a natural probiotic (as it is fermented – this is also true of the ingredient, tamari). I like to serve this recipe with fried rice, pasta or stir-fried vegetables. Grilled tempeh saté (with peanut sauce) is also... Read more

Eggplant stew with rice

A super-easy, comfort-food recipe... For you, from me. I make this often and it’s always satisfying. It’s full of vegetables and the eggplant seems to make meat (alternatives) unnecessary… Having said that, I do like it with a bit of sautéed tempeh or tofu – so you can always add that.... Read more

Mexican avo chili bowl

Just look at this colourful and protein-rich dish! And it’s tasty and nutritious, too! I serve this with all of the different ingredients nicely arranged in a bowl, but when I tuck into it, I mix everything up because the flavour combination is heavenly! The earthenware seen here comes from the Cote d’Ivoire. When... Read more

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

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
