Roasted Veggie Salad

Roasted Veggie Salad

Unfortunately it’s still winter outside – but can we do spring inside? We can do it. I’m a big fan of “nose to tail eating”. And by that I don’t mean the pig’s tail (I leave these to my carnivore enthusiasts friends…), but instead imply that we should look at vegs that way, too! Because...

Making my own Nutbutter

Making my own Nutbutter

Nutbutters have been on my list of favorite ingredients for years and years… And the domain is endless. Nutbutters are real multitalents, adding “oomph” to just about anything, from smoothies to porridge and müesli to desserts. To dip a slice of apple in almond butter…? Hmm, delicious. And they’re good spread on top of rice...

Avocado Rose (on Toast)

Avocado Rose (on Toast)

Whenever I see a good DIY project – which happens a lot when you’re a Pinterest addict, like me – I think to myself: “oh, I want to try this!”. I will bookmark it lovingly and archive it under my crafts boards. But then, the likelyhood and truth is I’ll probably never start anything, really....

Sticky Rice w/ Coconut Cream & Mango

Sticky Rice w/ Coconut Cream & Mango

When I think of my last proper (read: longer than a weekend, backpacking and free like a bird king of) travels, I think of 2003 (you guys!) when I travelled to Thailand. It was so fabulous! Busy Bangkok and beautiful beaches. And the food… OMG! Da best. Thailand got me forever hooked on coconut, curries,...

Grilled Artichokes with Fava

Grilled Artichokes with Fava

Do you know that yearning for spring sensation…? I’m still very happy about the snow (on the mountain peaks, mainly, where I plan on going skiing next weekend again, ha). But at the moment, all I want is fresh greens and soft flowers. Blooming nature! Young sprouts! Daffodils! Peter Rabbit! And peas, wild garlic, herbs, asaparagus,...

Vegan Banana Pancakes

Vegan Banana Pancakes

Is it just me, or is this Vegan Thing suddenly everywhere..? I mean, as a food interested person, I have heard about and eaten it, and also tried it in my own kitchen often enough. But, recently, there seems to be an even bigger explosion of the topic. Maybe it’s just Switzerland. Or maybe it’s the...

Vegan Berry Smoothie Bowl

Vegan Berry Smoothie Bowl

Now, juice and smoothie fans have to listen to a lot of criticism… Not enough fibre! Nothing to chew! Too much fruit in one gulp! Not good for the digestion! And I know… i know! But…! Listen to me. I’m hard working, I’m also somewhat committed to clean eating and an overall healthy lifestyle. And...

Whole Roasted Cauliflower w/ Sumach & Flowers

Whole Roasted Cauliflower w/ Sumach & Flowers

They say that you’re technically a grown-up at age 18… Well, I don’t know about you, but I most certainly wasn’t a grown-up at 18. To be honest, I’m still not sure wether I’d actively call myself “grown-up”, even now. First, this term leaves no room for imagination. It’s such an unforgiving term. Maybe I...

Whole Roasted Brussels Sprouts on the Stalk

Whole Roasted Brussels Sprouts on the Stalk

To whom sourcing local ingredients is a major concern, brussels sprouts are no doubt a welcome treat during the colder weather season. I love those buddies! Their taste, first and foremost, their texture (especially when roasted, which lends it an incomparable nutty flavor) and not least their looks.

Romanesco Couscous with Pomegranate

Romanesco Couscous with Pomegranate

Super scrumptuous – while at the same time raw, paleo, vegan, glutenfree (and basically all the other freaky things)…? I’ll take that, please! Why have I never thought of making Romanesco Couscous – or Cauliflower Couscous, for that matter – before in my life? How was I even able to exist without it? Okay, maybe...
