Lentil hand pies

Lentil hand pies are that kind of snack that you can have any time of the day, especially when it's combined with this amazing tangy tomato sauce. I made a huge batch of lentil bobotie and I seriously can't get enough. It's so tasty and keeps me full for quite some time.

Avocado sweet pea hummus is just such a beautiful side dish to those fresh spring days and evenings. I love hummus and have been making a batch every week, depending on the mood I am in, depends what flavors I like to add. Some of my favorite ones have been soy honey, tangy sweet turmeric, roasted carrot and sundried tomato hummus.

Spelt pancakes quince blackberry compote

Fluffy Spelt pancakes with quince blackberry compote are gonna be hard to beat. These oh so fluffy heavenly pancakes are just magic combined with the tangy blackberry quince compote. We are such pancake lovers in our house. Since eating a decent breakfast in a small town in the south of France we have to settle to drive a whole hour to get a decent breakfast.

Curry Lentil Chickpea pancake

Curry Lentil Chickpea pancake is my retake on the Oh she glows giant chickpea pancake that I made a couple of years ago and absolutely fell in love with. Its dough, chewy and filled with protein goodness. I love to use garbanzo flour quite a lot in my kitchen- in stews, quiches, pastry dough, cookies etc. It has a unique taste and does not go as well with sweet dishes, but aces savory!

Rhubarb strawberry pie pops

Rhubarb strawberry pie pops are my celebratory pie eating way of welcoming the first of May. Since I don't have the celebratory flower (lily of the valley) that is known as the fist of May, pie has to do the trick!

Quick baked falafels

Quickly baked falafels are super duper easy to make and sooo easy to eat as well. I have been trying out eating plant-based and it's been nearly two weeks. I don't eat that much meat in general and haven't been eating dairy for up to two years. After skipping meat for these plant-based goodies, I have to say I feel pretty good! These falafels are so easy to make and are very filling, so meat is really not missed over here. I might just do this for real.

Banana bread donuts

Banana bread donuts are the equivalent to my match made in heaven. It's a gooey, moist donut with a peanut butter, strawberry maple glaze and it's seriously too addicting. I have been trying to up my donut game since my last vegan donuts was an epic fail and I was over baking them after my son's birthday.

Spring dutch Baby

Spring dutch baby is a quick and easy lunch that I could whip up in a jiffy. I have to hungry men in my household, so I have to make sure that the meals I make are healthy, filling and fresh. Not that they don't know how healthy these meals actually are, I sneak a few key ingredients like feta to cream things up so they don't tell the difference.

Spicy Thai chicken stirfry

Spicy Thai chicken zoodles stirfry is my love declaration to Thai cuisine. I have always loved stir fry and I guessed I had it all in the bag, I mean all you have to do is just fry some chicken and veg and load up some sweet and sour sauce from the supermarket. Man, did I not know what I was missing. My husband thought that is all I could make. (so he did marry me for love after all, because I would make it on a regular. Just because it's always a go to when you don't know what to make, and then it gets pretty stale after a while. So this a great way of mixing it up. This is your game changer when it comes to stirfry.
Vegan Breakfast Brioche

Brioche breakfast loaf

Brioche breakfast loaf is my new favorite way of eating bread in general. I am not much of a bread eater, but when it's super good, like this loaf. I can't say no! I love Brioche and it's a favorite of the French as well. There are so many recipes on how to use this dough. I made this loaf, and it took a bit of time, but it was no time till every crumb was devoured. My son loved it so much, and usually, he gets pretty over things when he eats it more than once! But no one in this household was sick of having a slice of heaven for pretty much every meal of the day until there was no more!
