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

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

Gazpacho

This cold Spanish soup is often served as an appetizer, but I love it so much that I can easily down an entire bowl full. It’s also great served as a hors d’oeuvre if you’re organizing a dinner party. It looks fantastic in nice, tall glasses. Buen provecho!... Read more

Beet soup

This is really a gazpacho made with beets. In the summer, this soup is eaten cold, but in the winter, it’s also delicious warmed up. This soup is perfect for bringing with you on the go in a jar or bottle. Just don’t forget your spoon! ;) Crunchy crackers are a perfect accompaniment to this soup. Yum! Lieke... Read more

Crunchy Crackers

Making your own crackers means you know exactly what goes into them and that you can make them so much more nutritious than the crackers or crisp bread you buy in stores. On top of all that, they are so much tastier! I often eat these delicious, crispy bread-alternatives at lunch with homemade hummus or guacamole.... Read more

Miso soup

This is a very healthy and flavorful Japanese recipe. Miso paste adds its well-known flavor and an important ingredient is kelp – seaweed, which is healthier than just about anything. Not everyone likes seaweed though. I thought up this recipe that includes a whole bunch of extra vegetables and it’s so tasty that... Read more

The sun gave us all a happiness boost, the birds were singing, the first official day of spring is in sight and I can breath easy again because… I’ve finished the recipes for my new cookbook! I’ve thrown plates around, dropped pans full of food and... Read more

Oats To Go

Whenever I work from home, I take a little stroll to the veggie market down the street where I'll buy fresh and delicious ingredients to whip up a healthy salad for lunch. But when I travel, have to go to school or am just running from meeting to meeting, I always take some time in the morning to make a healthy... Read more
