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…

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…

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…

Guacamole smoothie

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!

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…

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…

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…

A reinvented Brazilian dish: prawn moqueca

Moqueca is a typical Brazilian dish. It can be fish, shellfish or meat based. It is very popular on the Nordeste coast and there are many versions as cooks. The one that I present in this post is inspired by the moqueca as it is prepared in Bahía, with coconut milk. Traditionally, it has a beautiful golden yellow…

Quick & easy: non-fried fried rice

Until I travelled to Asia, I did not like eating my rice other than white, because of the gross fried rices served in most restaurants here, which I abhor. It has been first in Cambodia, then Indonesia, Singapore and Sri Lanka, that I discovered the true flavor of fried rice. Far from being oily, fried rice…
