almond granola

Almond granola with lemon and dried cherries

Granola is one of my go-to breakfasts. As it’s so easy to make at home and you can add any ingredients and flavours you fancy, it gives you the opportunity to enjoy new varieties every season. Last week I was gifted a surprise batch of freshly picked sour cherries. I turned half of them into […]

Dried sour cherries

Naturally sweetened, oven-dried sour cherries

Last week a dear friend of mine surprised me with a bucketful of freshly picked sour cherries. Where I live, sour cherries aren’t a very common find. Only a few orchards grow them and as they don’t keep long once picked, you won’t find them in many veg stores either. When you do happen upon […]

sour cherry compote

Sour cherry compote with lemon and vanilla

Sour cherry season’s here! Contrary to their sweet siblings, sour cherries aren’t pleasant to eat straight off the tree – unpleasant being an understatement, considering the look of sheer panic on my youngest’s face after she unsuspectingly put one in her mouth. However, with their tart, concentrated cherry flavour these bright red little gems are […]

lime granita

Mint-infused cucumber and lime granita

This week the hot summer Europe has had for the past month has also reached our little country, with temperatures rising to over 36°C! But I come prepared. Iced green tea is cold-brewing in my fridge, my freezer is stacked with the ingredients for mango and turmeric smoothies and I just made a double batch […]

jackfruit rendang

Jackfruit rendang with quick pickles and toasted cauli rice

Rendang is a childhood favourite dish of mine. In my home country The Netherlands, Indonesian food is hugely popular, and especially the Dutch-Indonesian rendition of it: the “Indonesian rice table”. It’s the name given to a feast of small dishes: spiced veggies, fried plantain, curried eggs and different meaty stews, accompanied by rice, pickles and […]

flatbread pizzas

Flatbread pizzas with baba ganoush and roasted veg

Pizza night is always a happy night at our place. There’s nothing quite as fun as starting with a pizza base and stacking on as many different ingredients as you like for a custom-made, relaxed dinner. Lately we swapped traditional pizza bases for fluffy yogurt flatbreads to make these easy flatbread pizzas. With their airy […]

flatbreads

Fluffy vegan yogurt flatbreads

Flatbreads are one of the easiest and most versatile breads to make. With their airy texture and delicious flavour they make everything you serve them with just that bit better, whereas they can be whipped up with minimal effort and no special equipment. A few simple ingredients, a few minutes and a frying pan are […]

coleslaw

Red cabbage coleslaw with sesame dressing and mixed seeds

Sometimes simple is best. Whenever I tend to forget this premise in my cooking, there’s this delicious red cabbage coleslaw to remind me. Recently, this coleslaw became one of my go-to lunches and every time I eat it, I instantly feel happy and energetic. It’s a simple toss-everything-together-and-enjoy-straight-away dish, using just a few ingredients and […]
