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…

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…

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…

Chocolate chia pudding

Hello! As I have not published a sweet recipe for a while, I thought that the time had come to share with you this chocolate chia pudding recipe. It will delight gourmets and cocoa lovers :)! Like most of my recipes, I created it on lazy mood and empty fridge morning. I did not have enough…

Purple velvet: cherry & apple smoothie

As summer is coming to an end soon and I have not posted a smoothie recipe for some time, I thought it appropriate to share with you today my cherry and apple smoothie recipe. When I decide to create a new smoothie recipe, I usually always start by choosing a color I would like to drink. Deep…

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…
