Caesar Salad With Cashew Dressing

This week I launched my delicious cashew butter on the Market (proud!), so I’ve been experimenting with the spread over the past few days. This plant-based, fresh and creamy Caesar dressing is to die for and is definitely worth a try! How do I make croutons?
 Preheat the oven to 180°C/350 F. Chop four... Read more

Carrot-Top Pesto

Up until last year, I always just tossed carrot tops in my compost container, but now I make pesto out of them! I discovered that the tops are actually full of vitamins and minerals. Did you know that? I use the pesto on pasta, in soup or spread it on a cracker or slice of bread. Delicious! Tip: carrots... 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

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

Sweet potato puree

Just like pumpkin puree, this is precisely the kind of foundation recipe that I like to keep on hand in the fridge or freezer. What do I use it for? Cakes, muffins, soups, spreads, smoothies? What don’t I add it to? ; ) It adds a delicious hint of sweetness and creaminess to so many recipes! Love... Read more

Vegan Parmesan Cheese

This ‘cheese’ really does taste like Parmesan cheese, but it’s completely dairy free. It’s a great alternative if you, like me, are trying to eat as plant-based as possible or are lactose intolerant. It’s tasty in salads, as a topping for soup, pizza, pasta or as a spread on a cracker or slice of bread. The... Read more

Crunchy chickpeas

Seasoning chickpeas and baking them in the oven until they’re crispy transforms them into a surprisingly tasty snack. They’re a healthy alternative to chips or salted peanuts. They also make a tasty topping for soup or salads, if you ask... Read more

Tofu dip

I’ve recently become a big fan of this delicious, easy recipe. You can add it to so many different dishes. This is the basic recipe, but if you’re looking to spice things up a bit you can always add a bit of curry powder. Fresh dill is also an excellent option with (sweet) potato and parsnip fries. Try it and let... Read more

Chocospread

Healthy guilty pleasure! Cacao powder is a true must-have in your kitchen cabinet. It is a key ingredient in so many delicious recipes and it really is good for you. Make a nice big jar of this chocospread and put it on a cracker or use it as a topping for a slice of banana bread.... Read more

Maple Tahini Spread

Yumm! The creamy spread pairs well with various flavours and textures. The pure maple syrup adds a nice subtle maple flavour to the spread. If you don't necessarily love maple, you can add in honey instead. Honey will bring a nice floral sweetness. It tastes great on crackers. Also good with peanutbutter :) ... Read more

Coconut cream

For all the whipped-cream lovers out there who, rightly, always do without, this guilt-free option is your solution. I always make a dish of it with breakfast cookies, muffins and... Read more

Rawnola

Last week I made raw granola for the very first time. Wow, was it ever good! So sweet and chewy. I love it as a snack, but I also use it as a topping for my smoothie bowls and nice creams (banana ice cream). This ‘rawnola’ could also be used as the crust for a cheesecake. How handy is... Read more

Cashew cream

I really do add this cream to just about every recipe… On a salad as dressing, in a soup or as a dip. You can spice it up with herbs and spices or even fruit... Read more

Red pesto

That’s hot! This red pesto is made with sundried tomato and a red chili pepper. What I love about pesto is not only that you can incorporate it into any number of dishes and salads, but you can also just spread it onto a cracker. This red pesto is my new favorite, second only to the classic green... Read more
