Crisp and herby homemade falafel

Every November my husband and his friends take off to a holiday rental, where they spend three days playing games and catching up. During these weekends they traditionally feed themselves with tinned soup and kale mash, but one of the nights my husband does the cooking, choosing a  surprise theme or cuisine to feed the […]

Stuffed squash with herby wild rice salad and pomegranate

After a few weeks of trial cooking, last weekend I finally managed to tick that one important Christmas preparation box: deciding which dishes are going to make it to our Christmas dinner table this year.

Hummus with smoky roasted red pepper

Did I really never post a hummus recipe before? Considering the large amounts of hummus consumed in our house every week, it’s high time I filled in that gap.

Couscous with maple-roasted squash and crunchy chickpeas

Autumn is here and I couldn’t be happier with the prospect of all the warm-spiced sweet and savoury foods to be enjoyed in the next couple of months. Roasted squash and pumpkins, freshly picked chestnuts and seasonal baking, I’m ready to go! This week I put my oven to work and welcomed the season with […]

roasted chickpeas

Crisp-roasted spiced chickpeas

As you can tell from my recipes, I love chickpeas and I use them whenever I can, but up till recently I’d only used them in their soft, floury state. I´ve been missing out! A while ago I finally ventured making these attractive, spicy-looking crisp-roasted chickpeas you can see circulating on the Internet. They were […]
