Fall Recipes

Pumpkin nicecream

Mmm… I just can’t get enough of pumpkin at this time of year! Haha. I’ve managed to find a way to incorporate into just about everything, from curry, breakfast and cookies, to ice cream… Yes, you read that correctly! This past week I came up with the idea of making pumpkin ice cream, and boy did it work out!... Read more


Roasted cauliflower

A few years ago, I had roasted cauliflower with a tahini-based dressing in a restaurant in Australia and, ever since then, I’ve wanted to make it myself. Now, here you go! This is a recipe with a Rens touch. I hope that you and your guests enjoy it as much as I did! ;... Read more


Peanut-coconut curry

I eat a varied diet and actually like pretty much everything! But if you asked me what I most want to eat on a given evening… It’ll be curry, for sure! It’s such a delicious dish that you can endlessly adjust and adapt to your liking. This week I made this peanut-coconut version with chickpeas that I just had to... Read more


Vegetable stew

I think this stew is so delish! The combination of vegetables is so tasty and it’s also super nutritious and filling… If I know I have busy day coming up, I’ll make a double batch so that I can enjoy the leftovers the next day. And, to be honest, it actually tastes even better after a night in the fridge… Win...

Pumpkin pie oatmeal

It takes a bit more time to make oatmeal than it does to pour a bowl of cereal, but studies (and my own experience) tell us that eating oatmeal leaves you feeling full (and satisfied) for longer. The spices used here, in combination with the pumpkin and the applesauce, create precisely the warming and comforting... Read more


Fresh fall salad

You can eat Brussels sprouts raw, too! And if you’re going to try them raw, I prefer them grated… This is what prompted me to try out this tasty bowl full of other fall ingredients and, I have to say, it turned out pretty good! It’s even better with crunchy onion rings. It’s a super simple recipe and it’s... Read more


Pumpkin Petits Fours

These treats are cute and small, but are very filling. I make them even more festive by adding a dot of coconut cream, fresh fruit or even chocolate on top. So good! Photo: Lieke Heijn / Pim Janswaard @www.cameron-studio.nl... Read more


Fresh fig cheesecake squares

They are super creamy and just look at how great they look with those fresh figs! I think they’re the perfect treat to serve when friends stop by for coffee on a Sunday morning. They’re also great for sharing at a party or… just for eating whenever you feel like it. I’m in... Read more


Matcha Latte

Matcha lattes are one of my favorite drinks at the moment. This green drink gives you a mega energy boost and is an ideal coffee replacement, if you ask me. Below is a very easy recipe for making a matcha latte yourself. Enjoy!  P.S. Click here for my favorite website when you want to buy matcha... Read more


Spiced apple drink

Are you looking for a delicious and healthy drink that will heat you up during cold winter days? Stop looking, I have the perfect recipe for you. This warm, spiced apple juice is super simple and exactly what you need right now. During Christmas I really like to make this drink for my family. My niece and nephew love... Read more


Pumpkin quinoa curry

I’m always in for a party. Especially when there is dance music! Maybe you think that, me as a #powerfoodie, I always reject any alcoholic drinks or bites. Nothing could be further than the truth. When there is something to celebrate, I’m going for it. So pass it on with that big bowl of fresh crisps and a second... Read more


Beet salad

For me, the fall is always a time for taking stock and letting go. I take some time to reflect on what has happened in the past year and try to make room for new ideas to emerge. Because of this, my eating patterns also change, funnily enough. I start getting ready for winter, which means bring on the powerfoods! This... Read more


Gingerbread men

These little guys – gingerbread men – aren’t as well known in the Netherlands as they are in the US (where people are crazy about them). This isn’t the traditional recipe (which shouldn’t surprise you, coming from me!) as these cookies are free of refined sugar and gluten. They are, however, no less tasty! I... Read more
