Every month, the food blog swap is organized by several Dutch foodbloggers. The idea is that you make (and adapt) a recipe from another blogger that signed up. That way, you get to know more blogs (which is always fun), and try out someone else’s recipes. This month I decided to join for the first time, and I don’t regret it at all, because the blog I got assigned to is absolutely beautiful! It is called ‘Share love not secrets‘ by Dutchie Marleen, but she also blogs in English! Yay! Her photography style is absolutely wonderful, just as her recipes, so I would highly recommend you to take a look.
As you might have notices, I am currently on a cauliflower kick! A little while ago I already made this cheesy queso cauliflower dip, and now I have another super delicious recipe with cauliflower for you: sweet & fluffy cauliflower pancakes! Even though they are made with a ‘savory’ vegetable like cauliflower, these pancakes are actually not meant to be sweet. The trick is to lightly steam the cauliflower, and to make sure it is completely smooth before adding it to the batter.
– 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!
Like the mango smoothie bowl I posted a little while ago, this is again such a simple recipe, that I almost didn’t dare to post it. But, I guess it is just something that I have to get used to, because two-ingredient recipes can be amazing and creative too!!
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).
These brownies are heaven on earth! Fudgy, nutty and uber-chocolatey with a crunch from the walnuts. Yum! I know there are a lot of sweet potato brownie recipes out there, but this definitely is a keeper.
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!
