Summery Strawberry, Rhubarb and Rose Dessert Soup

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

How to make vegan candied rose petals

A 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

Recipe for apricot and ginger bliss balls with black sesame seeds

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.

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.
