Lupini Bean Falafel

This tasty falafel recipe made with lupini beans and cooked in a frying pan is super nutritious and filling. The falafel is delicious served as part of a salad or in a pita (or even wrapped in a leaf of pointed cabbage). I like it best with the tahini dressing... Read more

Golden Banana Bread

I’m currently addicted to eating this delicious, moist, sweet banana bread. I added a couple of teaspoons of my Golden Spices Mix to it and it makes the flavor even more special (and makes the bread healthier). The fruit makes it nice and sweet, but if you really have a sweet tooth, you can add a bit of coconut... Read more

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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. There are also markets that sell seasonal produce where I’m completely in my element and buy strawberries or cucumbers to make ice pops, juices... Read more

Quinoa salad

I discovered these little seeds in my favorite organic food store about seven years ago and ever since then, I’ve been in love with quinoa! 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
