Green gazpacho

Hello everyone! I am back after a few days of well deserved rest. The weather is amazing here, it is nice and warm night and day. No way of of dressing up, I just wear mini-shorts and a bikini top and spend the whole day like that. I love summer so much! Even if I…

Rediscover local produce with VitaVerDura

Today, I have the pleasure to inaugurate a new section of my blog. After posting tasty and balanced recipes, publishing articles about nutrition and exchanging with many of my readers – on the web or in real life, I came to the following conclusion: the main challenge for adopting a healthier diet is not the…

Palestinian dill, almond and cranberry salad

Hello everyone, Here I am again after a wonderful trip to Israel, the West Bank and Jordan, from which I brought back the recipe I am presenting today. I discovered this wonder at the end of my stay, in a Palestinian restaurant in Tel Aviv. I was intrigued by the combination off dill, almond and…

Spicy Quinoa with Veggies

Hello everyone! Since the weather doesn’t seem to know if it should stay in winter or switch permanently in the spring, I propose a recipe that you can decline in multiple ways. You can eat it warm, immediately after cooking it, or cooled down at room temperature. It will make a healthy and nourishing main course with…

Salad dressings

Adopting healthier eating habits does not necessary involve high expenses. Yes, fresh products from organic farming are more expensive than their non-organic counterparts. But have you thought of substituting some common processed foods with raw ingredients? Indeed, good quality raw food is necessarily cheaper than products that required several refining operations, as these involve more transport,…

Spirulina & Asparagus Green Risotto

Hello everyone! Many people recently asked me for recipes that incorporate spirulina. This micro-algae with an intense green colour is a true nutritional miracle. Low in calories, it can contain up to 70% protein. It is also a source of carotenoids, in particular beta-carotene. Spirulina is also an excellent source of iron. Unfortunately, its particular…

Sweet or savory moffles

I bet the name of this recipe intrigues you. No, this is not an error or a misspelling. The word moffle is the contraction of mochi and waffle. Of course you know waffles, but mochi is perhaps unknown to some of you. Mochi is a dough made from glutinous rice. It is originally from China and…

Purple potato cream soup

The cold has settled and does not seem to want to leave. These low temperatures force me to draw on my reserves, I often come home feeling totally exhausted after a day spent outside. As a result, I don’t feel like spending too much time cooking, despite being hungry as a wolf and wanting to eat…

Mandarin banana bread, gluten-free & vegan

It is the high season of mandarins. Yippee! I love them when they are ripe, juicy and sweet. However, I have the following problem with them: they are often sold in 2 kg packs or more, so I stuff myself with mandarins for a few days before I get bored. I usually end up having to choose…

Guacamole smoothie

Guacamole is one of my favourite dishes. I is tasty, nourishing and easy to prepare, and I believe it is a must to any barbecue or party worthy of the name! I love it so much that if I had one day left, I would be able to finish it at breakfast. It did not…

Red kuri squash burger, avocado bun & cashew-curry sauce

Brrrr … What a cold day! I do not know about you, but these temperatures make me want to eat fat! If I only listened to the greedy me, I would spend the day snacking on chips, pizzas, chocolates and cakes. Last weekend was no exception, I was craving a hamburger so badly! As I wanted both satisfying that…
