Breakfast popsicles with granola, raspberries and yoghurt

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.

Vegan falafel with fresh mint, cilantro and pistachio’s

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).

Curried beet soup with roasted chickpeas

Recipe for curried beet soup with madras roasted chickpeas

If you are not a conventional beetroot lover, this recipe is for you! A few weeks ago, I realized I had a jar of beets in my cupboard that was about to go bad. I normally don’t love the extremely earthy taste of red beets, but I also hate wasting food, so I decided I had to make something with them anyway. I first made a pizza (with a delicious crispy crust ūüėć) topped with beets, goats cheese, caramelized red onion, thyme and pine nuts. Delicious for sure, but I could still very much taste the earthy flavor of the beets. So, with the other beets, I decided to make something else: a curried beet soup! With this, you can barely taste the beets at all, since the curry spices are such a dominant flavor.

Roasted Red Pepper Ketchup

Spicy sugar free, vegan, gluten free, roasted red pepper ketchup, with no sugar or salt added

Ever since I started being more mindful of what I’m eating,¬†I’ve been making loads of things from scratch, such as pesto and hummus. The main reason for me is that by making it myself, I know exactly what goes in¬†it, and¬†I get to adjust it to my nutritional and¬†taste preferences.

Have you ever read the nutrition label at the back of your ketchup bottle? It is quite likely¬†that your favourite ketchup is actually 1/3 part sugar! If you then continue reading the ingredient list, you’ll probably¬†see high fructose corn syrup or something alike listed as the second or third ingredient, which means that it is the second or third most ingredient used.¬†I’m not here to discuss the whole HFCS debate, but I do know that I don’t like to eat a lot of¬†sugar, but if I do, I want it to be in the form of a delicious cookie, cake or muffin, and not in the form of an average-tasting, salty, red “tomato” sauce.
