Oatmeal with cauliflower

I’ve been experimenting with adding vegetables to my breakfast. This time I added cauliflower to my oatmeal. You need to like cauliflower and it does taste a bit different from what you may be used to, but I really liked it. I’m curious to know what you think! Please let me know below the recipe. Tip: Found... Read more

Cauliflower puree

To be honest, I like anything that include cauliflower. Roasted in the oven with a tahini-lemon sauce, made into couscous with stir-fried vegetables, served with oatmeal or as it is in this recipe… I love it all. This recipe is really worth a try if you’re looking for an alternative to traditional mashed... Read more

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

Nourish bowl

Here you go: the very salad the boyfriend made for me this past week (see vlog). Doesn’t it look delicious and healthy? He gave me the recipe and I’m telling ya, it is nutritious and super easy to put together! Especially if you already happen to have some hummus on hand. ; ) Note: Really famished? It’s also...

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

Little salad

This one is my take on a classic potato or Waldorf salad, which are a necessary part of any BBQ or Christmas dinner. My father used to make this when I was a kid, every year at Christmastime, and every time it was delicious. The foundation of this recipe comes from him, but I’ve added my own, contemporary twists.... 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

Cashew-feta balls

These little balls are tastiest in soup or on the side - and then preferably with a thick slice of bread and some pesto! Yes, you can wake me up for that, anytime! I always make a big batch of the balls at once and put half in the freezer so I always have some on hand. Also great when you have unexpected... Read more

Sweet Brownie Swirl

The taste of chocolate with a hint of mint has always been one of my favorites. You either love it or you don’t, though… I will say that. But if you’re a fan, you’re probably just like me and can’t get enough. And with the lovely swirl as topping, it also looks great. Perfect for Christmas! ;... Read more

Cinnamon ice cream

This one is heaven for those of us who love digging into a bowl of ice cream. Whether you’re organizing a dinner for friends or throwing a party for two (or one!) on the couch...... Read more

Cardamom bread

I like to serve this savory bread as an appetizer as part of Christmas dinner. It’s delicious with salad or a savory topping like hummus. And it’s ring shape makes it look super... 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
