The Sun Dried Tomato & Roasted Bell Pepper Hummus

I love hummus, but I have to admit that I’m getting a bit tired of the traditional chickpeas hummus, aren’t you? It’s good, healthy and everything, but why not spice it up a little? 

This recipe will take you to Provence (you know, that beautiful region in the south of France), it’ll bring some summer vibes in your kitchen- and if it’s winter where you are at the moment, I bet it’s welcome! Continue reading

The Beetroot and Feta Risotto

Beetroot risotto? I was also a bit dubious at first, but it’s actually delicious and it’s actually a nice change from the typical mushroom recipe! My six-year-old niece absolutely loved it, who doesn’t like to eat pink food really?

Also, on top of being very cute, beetroot has many health benefits:

  • Improves blood pressure
  • Prevents heart disease
  • Improves stamina and endurance performance
  • Boosts brain function
  • Detoxifies the body and clean the blood
  • Helps fight chronic diseases
  • Improves digestion
  • Helps with sugar cravings

Gluten-Free Chickpea Flatbread

IMG_0036I’m not really a bread-eater anymore, but I do enjoy a homemade alternative every now and then. I’ve had chickpea flour (also called gram or besan) in my pantry for a while and never really knew what to do with it – except for falafels. So I googled “chickpea flour, bread”, and this Socca recipe came out.

Socca is a popular street food from Nice (south of France) that’s a bit like a dosa or a pancake. It’s vegan, gluten-free, high in fibre and high in protein. You can read more about the health benefits of the chickpea flour below the instructions. Continue reading

The Curried Courgette ‘Spaghetti’

When I eat on my own, I can’t be bothered preparing an elaborated meal. I made this dish with three ingredients and in less than 10 minutes, it’s super easy and fun to eat! Needless to say that it’s also very much healthy and clean.

Ingredients (for one)

  • Courgette, 1/2
  • Cherry tomatoes, a big handful
  • Coriander, a handful
  • Curry powder, 1 teaspoon
  • Salt and pepper

Procedure

Wash the courgette and tomatoes. Use a spiraliser to make the courgette spaghetti or simply cut it in long stripes. Cut the cherry tomatoes in half. Chop the coriander.

Heat a little olive oil in a pan and add the spaghetti, cook until tender. In another pan, cook the cherry tomatoes until tender as well. Add the curry powder, salt and pepper.

Serve warm, sprinkle with the coriander. You can add some parmesan cheese if you fancy it!

Tadaaaaaaa!
