Christmas special: Gluten-free & Vegan Gingerbread Cookies

I do not have a sweet tooth: if you ask me to choose between a piece of cake and a portion of fries, the portion of fries will always win. Except during Christmas holiday season: you’ll see me stuffing myself with chocolates and biscuits, something I usually never do. Is it the cold that drives…

Beetroot hummus

I love mezze, antipasti, tapas… Everything that relates to aperitif! Who never ate so many appetizers, to the point of not being hungry any more at the moment of having their main course? In my opinion, appetizers are much more interesting and appetizing than main courses: they usually have beautiful colors, are presented in the…

Savoury spinach pancakes

After having testing and loving the spinachand buckwheat waffles recipe from womama.fr, I wanted to adapt it to make vegan pancakes. Indeed, I love eating pancakes at breakfast, but having sugar in the morning does not do me any good, which is why I opt mostly for smoothies or salty dishes. Making savoury pancakes seemed…

Vegetarian korma

Nothing like a delicious slow cooked dish to get some comfort during these cold autumn days. I especially enjoy Indian food dishes in this season, because the aroma of spices warms me up and reminds me of sunny places. Unfortunately, it is not easy to find quality Indian restaurants in Geneva: the dishes are delicious…

Purple sweet potato pie

As I am been totally obsessed with purple color for the last few weeks, it’s been a while since I wanted to cook a purple dessert. When I saw purple yams in my usual grocery store, I immediately knew what I was going to do: make a pumpkin pie-like tart, but with an unusual color! This pie can…

Sweet green smoothie

With days getting shorter, my energy levels decrease visibly. To top it off, I suffered a serious attack of laziness, and I must honestly say that I had to put me a big kick in the butt to push myself to write this article . If like me you feel you need a little boost, I suggest…

Halloween special: pumpkin & chocolate cake

I have said countless times: I love pumpkin! Because its colour is bright and beautiful color, because its flesh is soft and velvety, and because it can be used to cook savory or sweet dishes. I tasted and fell in love with pumpkin pie many years aho. I was working in the toy department of…

Butternut & turmeric smoothie

Celebrate Fall and its gorgeous squashes! Among my favorite varieties, butternut squash, holds a beautiful place. It owes its name to the sublime velvety texture of its flesh. It can be eaten raw like a carrot, or cooked in a thousand ways. Its tender flesh and slightly nutty taste, is as good in savory recipes…

Gluten-free pumpkin, sweet potato and chestnut gnocchi

With falling temperatures and the coming of the Northern cold wind, the body craves warm, nourishing and comforting foods. Thus I had the idea to combine three of my favorite seasonal foods – pumpkin, sweet potato and chestnut – to make earthy and delicious gnocchi. Initially, I hoped getting orange-coloured gnocchi. I did not get…

Pumpkin and chestnut cream soup

Autumn has arrived! No more summery dresses and sandals! Wind is cooler, days are shorter, leaves have started becoming golden and falling. This pleased me because autumn goes hand in hand with pumpkin and chestnuts, two seasonal products that I love. With these cooler temperatures, the body needs nutritious and comforting foods, like a good thick soup. Thus the…

Homemade sugar-free Bounty bars

I love Bounty chocolate bars. Their coconut flavor reminds me of a vacation in the tropics. The subtle bitterness of dark chocolate contrasts beautifully with the sweetness of coconut. Well, to be honest, there was a time when I used to love Bounty bars… Indeed, the candida diet I followed last year (see bio) made…

Refined sugar-free homemade ketchup

The recipe that I present today has been created by accident, like most of my recipes. I decided this year to plant in my backyard a variety of tomatoes that are not found in supermarkets where I leave. From the description of the store in which I bought the plants, these fleshy tomatoes are supposed to by perfect…
