Cheesy queso cauliflower dip

– This post is sponsored by Stompetoren. They sell loads of amazing Dutch cheeses. For this recipe I used their 18+ month old ‘Grand Cru’ cheese, but it is also great on a sandwich, as part of a cheese board, or crumbled in a salad – 

I imagine you might look at the pictures of this post, and be like ‘hmmmm, pretzels and cheese dip…. That’s not really THK approved… right?’ Wrong! This dip actually has loads of cauliflower in it! And that doesn’t make it gross, or yum for delicious food, but just yum. I bet that if you would make this for friends, and just told them it is a cheese dip, they would not even notice the cauliflower in there. I promise you, it is non detectable if you don’t know it’s there! Lately I’ve been really loving cauliflower, and its versatility. It is great to use as a rice alternative, or in this dip of course!

Vegan falafel with fresh mint, cilantro and pistachio’s

Is falafel a comfort food for you? Yeah, me too! *raises hand* It always surprises me how delicious such a little ball of humble ingredients can taste so good. I love chickpeas in hummus, but other than that I’m often disappointed by chickpea dishes. But then again, perhaps hummus is the king/queen of chickpea products and I’m just expecting too much? Well, I can happily say that these falafels are pretty delicious too. Dare I say even better than some specific kinds of hummus?! (Ever had beet hummus? I’m personally not a fan haha).

Mango smoothie bowl

Recipe for mango smoothie bowl

I posted the photo above on Instagram a little while ago, and it wasn’t until a few people asked for the recipe that I was convinced that I should post it on my blog, because it is so simple I felt it would be ridiculous to make a blogpost about it. But well, here we are! I guess easy recipes are what people like so here it is! So guys, thanks for the encouragement to post this! 🤗

This mango smoothie bowl only has 5 ingredients (okay, 6 if you count water too), and it is super simple to make. You can also replace the mango with any other fruit to make it into e.g. a banana and blueberry smoothie bowl, and I bet one with strawberries and raspberries must be delicious too! The trick to get a good smoothie bowl is to get the right consistency. And to top it with yummy things of course!

Cinnamon rolls

Recipe for the best, fluffiest cinnamon rolls

As some of you might know, I spent almost 3 months in Canada and the US during my blog hiatus. Before this trip I’d never had a cinnamon roll, can you believe it? Yeah, I’d heard of them, seen them on tv, and I also read about all sorts of people that raved about cinnamon rolls, but I never tried them. Cinnamon rolls are not really a thing in the Netherlands, which is why they are difficult to get if you’re not into making them yourself.

Curried beet soup with roasted chickpeas

Recipe for curried beet soup with madras roasted chickpeas

If you are not a conventional beetroot lover, this recipe is for you! A few weeks ago, I realized I had a jar of beets in my cupboard that was about to go bad. I normally don’t love the extremely earthy taste of red beets, but I also hate wasting food, so I decided I had to make something with them anyway. I first made a pizza (with a delicious crispy crust 😍) topped with beets, goats cheese, caramelized red onion, thyme and pine nuts. Delicious for sure, but I could still very much taste the earthy flavor of the beets. So, with the other beets, I decided to make something else: a curried beet soup! With this, you can barely taste the beets at all, since the curry spices are such a dominant flavor.
