Delicious okra stew

IMG_0836

Okra stew, it’s such a lovely vegan side dish. I don’t make often enough (very difficult to find in Paris), so I was triple happy when my husband brought a big paper bag full of organic okra last week. Every time okra at home I cook it this way. Very simple recipe, easy to make. Will take you a maximum 20 minutes to prepare and about 40 minutes to cook. Very nice with different kinds of rice or cooked potatoes. Hope you’ll like it as much as we do.

Vegan chocolate berry tartlet

Vegan chocolate berry tartlet is a very easy, fast and guilt free recipe. I really love the combination of grilled hazelnuts with a pistachio paste and chocolate-berries. My little son was getting really crazy about it, asking me mummy I want more and more….pleeeeease :). He made me so happy that I did not even care about chocolate fingerprints all over the table :)

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

Vegetarian mushroom meatballs is a very interesting recipe. Takes a little time to prepare due to cleaning and chopping mushrooms and artichokes, but is really worth it. You can serve with black or red rice, quinoa or potatoes.

Lovely salad. I got extremely surprised about the taste and harmony of the mixture. Inspired by Epicerie generale, is an amazing place where I love to make my grocery. I have made few changes of the ingredients. Preparation is very fast and easy. The result is simply delicious. The only advice I would give: Be generous with a grilled pine nuts and almonds, they give an incredible taste to it. Je vous souhaite une très bonne dégustation.

Vitamin rich winter breakfast

IMG_9904

For me, a breakfast is such an important meal of the day. After all night fasting I always start my day with warm lemon water. Sometimes especially in the winter, I add manuka or rosemary honey. Then I wait 20 minutes before starting to eat. At the moment, I’m totally in love with Vitamin rich winter breakfast. It’s light, but so rich in the same time. I like to add seasonal fruits on the top and eat some almonds apart. Gives me always a good kick for the day, I never feel tired after. Real cereal killer :). Have a great one <3

Vegan chestnut pear veloute

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 ;)

Bohemian vanilla cookies with chocolate filling

This recipe is very typical Christmas recipe from Czech Republic.  I modified slightly the ingredients, less sugar, no eggs ;) and chocolate filling instead of jam. The jam version is excellent as well you can try to make a healthy version of a jam if you feel like http://www.oh mydelish.com/?p=307 with frozen berries in this season to  replace the chocolate filling. I really love these cookies, they are simple and delicious. So good with a cup of Roiboos tea. Wish you great baking and mainly wish you beautiful winter holidays. Peace and love from Paris to all of you http://bit.ly/1m7re6V
