Dahl Soup

In New York there is a street made up only of Indian restaurants. So great. When I’m in the city, I always visit one and order a filling Indian lentil soup. That’s the inspiration for this soup. With lentils, sweet potato and all sorts of aromatic herbs, this soup is extra healthy. A delicious, satisfying soup... Read more

Beet salad

For me, the fall is always a time for taking stock and letting go. I take some time to reflect on what has happened in the past year and try to make room for new ideas to emerge. Because of this, my eating patterns also change, funnily enough. I start getting ready for winter, which means bring on the powerfoods! This... Read more

Kale pesto

Do you guys still remember my recipe for ‘old skool’ pesto? I came up with it two years ago, back when my first cookbook came out (time flies when you’re powercooking!). I’m still crazy about toppings and dressings and this pesto has remained one of my favorites. Every Sunday I make a new batch to get me... Read more

Gingerbread men

These little guys – gingerbread men – aren’t as well known in the Netherlands as they are in the US (where people are crazy about them). This isn’t the traditional recipe (which shouldn’t surprise you, coming from me!) as these cookies are free of refined sugar and gluten. They are, however, no less tasty! I... Read more

Christmas Breakfast Cake

Oh how I love Christmas, especially Christmas breakfast. You can just go to town and eat whatever you want… Think pies, Christmas stollen and… Cake! Since I’ll be abroad this holiday season, I’ve already tested and approved this recipe for you ahead of time. I’m telling you… It’s delicious! And it’s a... Read more

Chocolate milk

It’s very thirst quenching when you drink it cold, but you can also warm it up on the stove. It’s tasty nice and hot, but make sure it doesn’t actually come to a boil as this will destroy the nutrients in the milk.Picture: M.V. Voorbergen & styling: Marieke Verdenius for Jamie... Read more

Pumpkin Spice Granola

I love granola. I could eat it every day. It’s delicious with a bit of oat milk, sprinkled on top of my acai bowl or scooped up in a handful as a snack. Yum.This recipe is a bit more interesting than your average granola as it contains pumpkin puree, speculaas spices and is sweetened with maple syrup instead of... Read more

mix for spiced cookies

During the colder months, there’s nowhere I’d rather be than in my cozy little kitchen baking Dutch treats (pepernoten (mini gingerbread cookies), ontbijtkoek, sweet muffins…). The wintery, spicy flavor that all these addictive sweets have in common comes from the Dutch speculaas spice mix that I always add to... Read more

Spicy Pumpkin smoothie

Sometimes it’s hard to maintain a healthy lifestyle during the winter months, isn’t it? At least I find it a bit tougher than usual not to indulge in all the tasty food that’s around at this time of year. Everyone has done their best, food is abundant and everything smells so good! After all these festive... Read more

Kale Chips

Make yourself happy with kale! Really though. I promise you that you’ll feel better after eating this snack than you would after a bowl of ice cream and a bag of chips… And if you really taste the chips, they are just as tasty. Kale is not only hot in cities like New York, it’s also full of vitamin K, vitamin... Read more
