Zucchini-basil soup with roasted chickpeas

It is super simple and delicious served with... Read more

Watermelon Pizza

I’m staying close to home this year because my hometown is so incredibly fun and there’s so much to do and see; from dancing on boats to fantastic festivals every week.

Thank you globalization, thank you infrastructure and thank you South America! Quinoa is high in protein, contains all of the essential amino acids, making it a complete... Read more

Red pepper soup

The color, the texture, the flavor… Everything in one! That’s why I think this soup makes the perfect appetizer for Christmas dinner. It’s nice and light (you can make it a weightier meal in its own right by adding rice and cashew-feta balls), which makes it the perfect lead up to the next course.... 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

Grilled bell pepper salad

I’m often asked what I like to eat for lunch. Given the fact that I spend (almost) every day in the kitchen trying out new recipes, what ends up being lunch usually depends on what I’m experimenting with that day. When I’m not, I love to eat salads with a crunchy cracker or spelt toast for lunch. Delicious! This... Read more

Osawa Cake

This week, one of my close friends surprised me with something truly delicious that she baked to go with our coffee. I took a bite of this – what should I call it? – cookie, cake, bread-like snack? It was filling, scrumptious and sweet and full of nuts and dried fruit. Truly delicious and nutritious! Picture:... Read more
