Wholewheat bread with pumpkin seeds, raisins & banana

2020-12-25T21:37:57+01:00By |Blog, Food, Health, Recipes|

I love bread, especially wholewheat with lots of seeds. Really good bread tastes best with only olive oil and salt, some salted butter or even just as it is. At my daughter's kindergarten, they bake bread with the kids every day. As soon as my daughter comes in, she is handed a piece of dough [...]

ABC-smoothie bowl (Apple, Beetroot, Carrot & more)

2020-12-25T21:09:36+01:00By |Blog, Blog EN, Food, Health, Recipes|

I've had this smoothie for breakfast almost every day in the last two weeks. Temporary crazes are part of my life :). This healthy red smoothie recipe is based on (and an extension of) the famous ABC (apple-beetroot-carrot) juice, but leaves in all the fibres that are important for a healthy sugar digestion. I love [...]

Simple vegetarian broccoli lasagne

2020-12-11T15:50:44+01:00By |Blog, Blog EN, Food, Health, Recipes|

Honestly, when preparing this I forgot to add the vegetarian 'minced meat' and it was still delicious. Would also be great with mushrooms! Find your own, buy fresh or soak dried mushrooms from your stock. First, mix together ingredients for the sauce. I used tomato sauce, tomato paste, water, sambal (chili paste) and bruschetta mix [...]

Tortellini carbonara with fresh parasol mushroom and zucchini

2020-12-11T15:50:44+01:00By |Blog, Blog EN, Food, Health, Recipes|

We found a beautiful bunch of parasol mushrooms (in Dutch: grote parasolzwammen) in a neighbor's garden. She was super friendly and gave us one, after we explained how delicious they supposedly were - although we hadn't tried before. (Btw: if it's not the right season or foraging is not your thing: you could substitute the [...]

An easy way to serve something special: bliss balls! These are nutrient rich, filling little snacks and they look wonderful. You can vary them endlessly. I happened to have pineapple juice and decided to boil that down to a syrup, but you could just as easily use honey, agave, rice syrup, apple juice etc. As [...]

Light and fresh ? Slice bell pepper, cucumber and avocado, chop apple and thinly cut mint leaves. Combine everything and top with thin shallot rings, if you like that. My love preferred it without and removed them :). Dressing: olive oil and lemon juice, salt and pepper. Keep it simple!

Cheap and simple. Once you get the hang of it, it will only take 15 minutes to make a liter (or more) of delicious oat milk, way cheaper than any store bought brand will bring it to you. What you'll need: a fine sieve (I use the one from my tea pot, it's about 8cm [...]
