Hello lovely people! I have a new recipe for this gorgeous purple eggplant and carrot soup for you all today. Apart from being an absolute feast for the eyes, this soup is also super delicious! The combination of eggplant, carrots, ricotta and walnut pesto is slightly sweet and rich in umami flavor.
Making this soup is also a perfect way to use up that overflow of eggplants and other produce in the summer and saving it for later, since the soup freezes well.
It has been so hot in the Netherlands lately that all I have been wanting to eat is ice cream and popsicles! For the coming week, they even predicted a heatwave 😱 Since I’m not used to hot weather at all, I need all the help I can get to cool off, and my latest popsicle creation, these with mango and coconut water, are a life saver! The Obrigado coconut water helps to restore my mineral balance, while the mango brings in antioxidants and vitamins. For a fun and delicious twist I also added some lime zest!
These pretty cacao coconut popsicles are the perfect healthy treat during the warm summer months, and they are so incredibly easy to make! You only need three ingredients: cacao, (full-fat) coconut milk, and maple syrup or any other sweetener that you like.
On top of that, these babies just happen to be vegan as well, and suitable for people with nut- or gluten allergies! They are super chocolatey and rich, and they just scream “SUMMER” in capital letters. It has been incredibly dry and hot in the Netherlands for the last month or so, and these popsicles have totally saved me from dying from the heat haha.
I love banana bread! It’s the best thing to make when you have some leftover, overripe bananas. This version is sprinkled with a handful of walnuts for a delicious crunch! Continue Reading…
You only need 5 ingredients for these delicious pancakes. They are made with whole wheat for that extra flavor, and of course for the extra fibers! For the protein, I added quark, which is a very fresh cheese, similar to cottage cheese. However, you usually eat it like you would greek yoghurt, as part of breakfast with some granola and fresh fruit for example. It’s mostly popular in Western-Europe, so if you cannot find it, you can replace it with greek yoghurt or any kind of unsalted cottage cheese. Lastly, the pancakes are flavored with organic herbal tea! The one I used, Hug in a Cup from Natural Temptation, is a mix of green tea (35%), cinnamon (20%), cardamom (10%), ginger (10%), fennel seeds (10%), cloves (5%), black pepper (5%) and star anise (5%).

Can you believe that you only need 5 ingredients for these tartelettes?! Cashews, dried apricots, oats, fresh strawberries and fresh passion fruit. That’s it! The trick is using ingredients for multiple things. I made the base from cashews, dried apricots and oats, for the filling I also used the cashews and apricots, and then I topped the tartelettes off with fresh strawberries and passion fruit. Multi purpose ;)
