• Dairy-Free Chocolate Chips Banana Bread

    Banana bread is the perfect cake for those days when you have spare brown bananas and you don’t know how to get rid of them. The past week has been quite busy and I forgot to eat the few bananas that I bought last Sunday. This morning when I was sorting the kitchen I saw 2 ripe bananas and decided to prepare this Chocolaty Banana Bread. The recipe is dairy-free so perfect for those of you that don’t consume any dairy. I did use eggs but if you follow a vegan diet don’t worry. Simply substitute the eggs with “flegg”, i.e. egg replacer made from flax meal and water.

  • Spinach & Chestnut Mushroom Buckwheat

    Let’s talk about Superfoods. Have you ever tried buckwheat? Buckwheat is often confused with a grain because of the way it is cooked and used, but it’s actually a ‘pseudo-cereal’ seed related to rhubarb and sorrel. It’s a good source of protein, containing all the essential amino acids. It is an excellent source of manganese and magnesium and a good source of selenium, niacin, folate, iron, zinc, copper and phosphorus. It’s naturally gluten-free and can be used as an alternative to rice, barley, porridge or even flour. Just to give you an idea, here is the recipe of the Spinach & Chestnut Mushroom Buckwheat that I prepared yesterday using @forestwholefoods organic Buckwheat…

  • Healthy Smoothie Bowls

    As I’m a big fan of Smoothie Bowls, I’ve decided to make a post about them! Have you ever tried a Smoothie Bowl? If you have never had a one and are wondering “What is a Smoothie Bowl?”, “How can I prepare a Smoothie Bowl?” or “What’s the difference between a Smoothie and a Smoothie Bowl?” Well, the answer is pretty easy. Smoothie bowls as the name say are smoothie that are eaten in a bowl. The main difference from a normal smoothie is the consistency, they are usually thicker so that you can eat them with a spoon, and they have toppings. Toppings are the best part of a smoothie bowl!…

  • Dairy-Free (and Guilt-Free) Dark Chocolate Crêpes

    Did I tell you that I really like experimenting and creating new recipes? Well, today I woke up feeling like something sweet and given that I had a few eggs in the fridge to get rid of, I decided to prepare crepes! But careful, these are not normal crepes! Normal crepes are made with milk, eggs, flour, butter, and in some cases water. These crepes as the title says are “Dairy-Free” and “Guilt-Free”!! In fact, they are lighter than usual crepes and are suitable for those of you that have a dairy allergy or simply don’t consume dairy products. For the base, I only used 5 ingredients: eggs, flour, non-dairy milk,…

  • Vegan Chocolate & Peanut Butter Cups

    Who doesn’t love Chocolate & Peanut Butter Cups?!? Did you know that they are very easy to prepare and you just need a few ingredients? As you can guess the main ingredients are chocolate and peanut butter so make sure to use best quality you can find! Apart from these ingredients, you would also need muffin cups. If you don’t have muffin cups yet I would highly recommend the silicone cups as they are much easier to use. It’s easier to remove the chocolate cups from these rather than the classic metal muffin tray. (Here are the silicone cups that I used: muffin cups).

  • Beetroot Hummus

    Something that I really like is playing with food colours and creating easy and tasty plates. This evening I’ve gone for pink and prepared a beetroot hummus which is perfect as a starter, with pita bread or to accompany raw or roasted vegetables. For those that don’t know it yet, it’s completely gluten-free, dairy-free, vegetarian, vegan, nut-free and great source of protein!! 😉 It’s also very easy to prepare, you just need few ingredients and a blender! The main components as you can guess are beetroots and chickpeas. For a quick version, you can use tinned chickpeas and the already cooked beetroots. Alternatively, if time is not a problem, I would recommend using dry chickpeas (cooked in advance, best…
