• 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…

  • 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,…

  • Beetroot Hummus

    Something that I really like is playing with food colours and creating easy and tasty plates.

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…
