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…

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…

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…

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…

Sun-dried tomato and almond pesto

The summer dishes extravaganza continues with this sunny recipe. Four ingredients, minimal preparation time and plenty of flavor, what more? I have created this recipe because my parents brought me a significant amount of almonds from Sardinia. I wanted to use them quickly, before they become rancid. Originally, I wanted to make a pesto for pasta. The result…

Traditional Greek cuisine: tzatziki

Today I am sharing with you a perfect summer recipe: Greek tzatziki. I discovered and immediately fell in love with this dish while traveling around Greece, on the beautiful Corfu island. It is also popular in Turkey under the name ‘cacik’ (pronounced “djadjik”). This fresh and creamy dish made of yogurt and cucumbers will make…

Crushed potatoes: a lighter and tasty alternative to potatoes mash

If you love mashed potatoes but you want to watch your butter consumption, this recipe is for you! I created it while on the candida diet. Indeed, I could not eat dairy not mashed potatoes, as because of their fine texture, mashed potatoes have a higher GI than boiled ones. So I found a compromise by simply crushing them…

Exotic rolls: Sri Lankan rotis

I discovered these wonderful rolls in Sri Lanka, during an ayurvedic retreat. They can be eaten as a side dish with curry, as a starter with chutney, or for breakfast with butter and honey, if you make them without salt and spices. This recipe is so simple it cannot go wrong. It will allow you to make eight nutritious…
