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 […]


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 […]

wild garlic tortellini

Wild garlic tortellini with broad bean pesto and basil oil

Spring is here! Regardless of nightly frost and occasional hail storms still passing over Holland, what makes it undeniably so is the emergence of wild garlic in our forests, hedgerows and, I’m happy to say, in the shaded corners of my own garden. As wild garlic is one of the first edible things to start […]

French toast

Pumpkin spiced French toast with yogurt and citrus wedges

Spring break started this week and I’ve come prepared: I stocked up on the basics for the ultimate French toast, to treat myself and my loved ones to the most lovely leasurely breakfast. Ever since I was little, my mum made the best French toast – and so she still does. I don’t know if […]

coconut tartlets

Creamy coconut tartlets with lime and passion fruit coulis

My eldest has her birthday in the days running up to Valentine’s day.

In my view, there are worse things to associate your birthday […]

aquafaba pancakes

Fluffy aquafaba pancakes with maple and vanilla plums

In this summer’s post on my favourite egg substitutes, I cheered about the versatility of chickpea water, or aquafaba.

Whenever […]

Vegan mushroom tart with chestnuts and Jerusalem artichokes

This winter weather has me craving warm, comforting flavours and oven-baked goodness for breakfast, lunch and dinner. I love cooking with winter vegetables and fortunately, there are plenty of options to turn on the oven for. So when I stumbled upon a bag of Jerusalem artichokes and a left-over batch of chestnuts, I immediately knew […]


Vegan stollen wreath with cranberries and homemade marzipan

Our house is smelling wonderfully, because I’m baking Christmas stollen! Traditionally, stollen is a German bread, baked in the advent period. Growing up in the Netherlands, though, our Christmas breakfast has also never been complete without a slice of this sugar-dusted, fruit and marzipan filled goodness. The past years I’ve been baking my own, experimenting […]

beetroot salad

Golden beetroot salad with cranberries and spiced pecans

Some ingredients can turn your dinner into a festive meal without any effort whatsoever. With their vibrant looks and fresh flavour, golden beetroots are one of them. Where I live, golden beetroots are much less commonly available than their red siblings, so when I do stumble upon them, I immediately buy lots of them and […]
