Grilled eggplant salad is probably my favorite way to prepare this vegetable. I really love the smoky taste of it. You can add more ingredients into it. For example finely chopped tomatoes, parsley, tahini or sprinkle with grilled pine nuts. Lovely served with fresh warm pita bread.
Holiday vanilla cookies are very easy and fast recipe. Very favorite in my native country. There is no home who would not prepare these cookies for a Christmas. I really love them. First of all the taste brings me straight back to my childhood second of all they are really delicious. Hope you would like as much as I do.
Vegan stuffed tomatoes are such an ideal meal for cold days. I have tried a few versions, but this one is really my favorite. The filling is simply delicious and can be used with another vegetables as zucchini, potatoes, peppers or pumpkin. This recipe takes a little time to prepare, but if you make a bigger quantity you can freeze part of it for the next time. So let’s get started ;).
Oh yes, autumn’s here. Till now we are very spoiled with a nice weather in Paris. Real Indian summer. I’m totally in love with the autumn harvest. So many choices of fruits and vegetables on the market….Foodie’s heaven <3. One of the fruits that I really love in autumn is plums. When I say plums I have immediately lots of memories coming up in my mind: plum harvest at my parents garden and then delicious cake baking with my mom, I can’t even describe the amazing smell of it all over the house. Plum chia seeds jam is a modern version of my grandma’s classical plum jam recipe which dates about 100 years. Can you imagine? She would always put inside the star anise to give a nice taste to it. She would also put some Brandy in a few airtight containers. You know, in my homeland the winter can be really tough :). Hope you will like and enjoy this version.
Hello, everybody. I hope that all of you enjoyed or still enjoying your holidays. After the summer vacations, I’m finally back to my blog. Couldn’t wait to bring you new recipes. This one is definitely inspired by our holidays in Greece. Fresh beetroot salad with figs is incredibly surprising. The mixture of beetroots with pine nuts, hazelnuts, and figs is really delicious and what I love the most about it is the mixture with a greek yogurt. Gives lovely fresh, silky and creamy taste to it. Hope you’ll enjoy as much as I do<3.
Yes, I really love artichokes. Cooked, fried, warm, cold and if I could I would possibly make a cake out of it :). Artichoke heart salad is one of my favourites. I prepare very often as a starter. It’s delicious and easy. The only thing that takes a little time is to remove the leaves to obtain the artichoke heart, but with patience and good music on is no problem. After all after effort comes comfort :). Bon Appetit.
I know, I know I was absent for a little while. But I have an excuse (even those I don’t like excuses). I had a big list of recipes I really want to post on the blog, but before I post something I always need confirmation to see what people think about the taste, texture, mixture. I have organized a few recipe tasting dinners with our friends and family to know what they like the best. And now here I’m again with a new recipe. This time is vegan and gluten free delight. Very easy to prepare and yet really delicious and light. Now is only up to you to taste it and let me know what you think about it. Tons of love from Paris
Voulez-vous manger un gateau? As I said on my Instagram profile I have no words for the deliciousness of this cookies. Only one thing I can say:
I have to make another tray today :))). All is gone. But sssstttttt…no words, just taste and you tell me ;)))
I give myself a big challenge to make a vegan version of chestnut pear veloute (normally made with milk or cream). Replace a dairy product with vegetable milk or cream was not a solution. I would never obtain the taste that I was looking for. Finally, the key was to replace dairy products by a very strong homemade vegetable broth. And bingo…the taste is heaven. Some people think vegan food is tasteless, but I guarantee you vegan food can be a real gastronomy. Just give a try
Happy New Year to all of you. Wish you an amazing year made of delicious ingredients. Let’s start with the first recipe of 2016 “Beetroot salad with raspberry dressing”. This salad is incredibly surprising. I can’t get enough of it. The mixture of sweet, sour, salty and yet deliciously cheesy get’s you really close to real gastronomy <3. Please enjoy the taste :).
