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 ;)
A few years ago, when I had only just started blogging, I was invited to a food bloggers event about tomatoes. We had a nice afternoon, during which we got a tour of the greenhouses, an explanation of the different tomato varieties they cultivated, and of course we could taste some delicious dishes made with their tomatoes. Even though this was quite some time ago, there is one thing that I tasted that afternoon, that I can still remember like it was just yesterday: an “Asian” tomato salad with cilantro and spring onion, and the most amazing dressing with umami flavors. It was just simply amazing.
Do you also love those delicious granola bars that you can get at the super market? You know, the ones that have that delicious yoghurt coating, and are filled with dried fruits, and oats, and of coarse loads of sugar? Yeahh, I love those as well!! They are delicious but not very healthy, which is why I decided to try and make them myself!
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.
– 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!!
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!
