Summery Strawberry, Rhubarb and Rose Dessert Soup

June 30, 2016

Dessert soup with rose, rhubarb and strawberries
This Strawberry, Rhubarb and Rose Soup has actually evolved super naturally. I still had some fresh organic rhubarb laying around, and wanted to make a recipe with it that wasn’t what is typically done with rhubarb. I already once made a rhubarb strawberry lemonade that I absolutely love, so inspired by that I wanted to make another ‘drink’ that involved rhubarb. Obviously, this soup isn’t a ‘drink’, but I guess that if you would thin it down a little, you could definitely call this a smoothie as well.

How To Make Vegan Candied Rose Petals

June 20, 2016

How to make vegan candied rose petalsA few weeks ago I was cleaning out my spice cabinet and came across a little jar of dried, edible, rose petals. I had bought them once to use as decoration for cupcakes but eventually never used them. I’ve always loved eating flowers, be it in restaurants or as a topping on a simple rice cracker, but apart from using flowers in drinks, cooking and developing recipes with them has always been a little bit outside of my comfort zone.

So, in order to step out of my comfort zone, I took a look at my favourite book, The Vegetarian Flavor Bible, to search for some ingredients that pair well with rose. Next week there is a recipe coming up that uses rose water and these pretty little candied rose petals. It is delicious and perfect for summer, so stay tuned!!

Apricot and Ginger Bliss Balls

March 2, 2016

Beautiful, delicious and vibrant apricot and ginger bliss balls. Made with whole food ingredients like dried apricots, fresh ginger, macadamia nuts and turmeric.

I’m gonna be honest about it, I’m not the biggest fan of ginger. I think its flavor can be kind of intrusive and sort of overwhelming. However, when you only use a little bit of it, for example in a smoothie or in these delicious bliss balls, it just add a little depth and warmth to the overall flavor of the dish.

These tiny bliss balls are real powerhouses with healthy whole food ingredients like fresh ginger, turmeric, nuts and seeds. For example, it is scientifically proven that ginger has plenty anti inflammatory and antioxidant characteristics. Interestingly, a 2012 study even showed that when mice with tumors were fed 100 mg ginger extract per kg body weight, their tumors decreased in size by 56%! Even though this study was done in mice, it still provides an interesting perspective of the positive effect that ginger may have on our body.

Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal

November 20, 2015

A recipe for Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal. A delicious breakfast with hints of vanilla, ginger, cinnamon and nutmeg. Who said you couldn't have pie for breakfast?! | by That Healthy Kitchen

Oatmeal is one of the healthiest breakfasts you can eat. Oats are full of fibers and are high in protein, which will make you feel full until lunch time, but oats are also bursting with micronutrients like thiamin, manganese, phosphorus and magnesium.

For me, oatmeal is what I eat for breakfast almost every day, especially now that it is getting colder outside and I want something warm to start my day with. Normally I would opt for this Apple Pie Oatmeal, which is also perfect for this time of year, but to spice things up a little I’ve been making this Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal often for the last couple of weeks. It is perfectly spiced with hints of vanilla, cinnamon, ginger and nutmeg, and it is really smooth and creamy from the pumpkin puree. The pecans on the other hand add a nice contrast to the creaminess of the oats. On top of that all, the oatmeal is sweetened with date paste (or date caramel), which are actually pretty high in potassium and copper.

Autumn Apple Pancakes

November 8, 2015

Apple Cinnamon Pancakes

These Autumn Apple Pancakes are amazing guys! Perfect for a lazy Sunday breakfast or brunch now that the days are getting colder and you want a warming breakfast.

If you’ve been following this blog for a while, you probably noticed that I’m a huuuge sucker for the combination of apple and cinnamon: my favourite oatmeal is this Apple Pie Oatmeal and my favourite muffins are these Apple Muffins with Walnuts, Cinnamon and Zante Currants. They are both so so good!! The combination of apples + cinnamon is just amazing to me. It reminds me of long autumn strolls in the woods, the beautiful red, orange and yellow colours of the trees, reading a book by the fireplace, etc.
