Asian inspired sticky lentil balls 

Asian inspired sticky lentil balls were quite an unforgettable dish and there where seconds to spare. I love all things soy related and I am not afraid to confess. They are the perfect balance between sweet and sour. These protein loaded balls are just so amazing and super addictive! This super meal can be prepped beforehand and frozen for those days where you just don't know what to make or when you need an extra protein boost to your lunch or dinner bowl.

One bowl carrot cake muffins

One bowl carrot cake muffins will simplify your life. They are vegan, fluffy an loaded with all the good stuff. The hidden veggies, since my toddler and husband can spot vegetable a mile away are just sublime and adds to the uber fluffiness. These little bubs of goodness are pros at fooling even the very picky eaters of them all.

Creamy mushroom stuffed spinach ravioli

Creamy mushroom stuffed spinach ravioli is the way homemade pasta should be done. The effort is a tad bit much so be sure to be in the mood for food when you make these. These pretty green pasta pockets are filled with a cashew cream mushroom filling, topped with sauteed crunchy shallots, kale, and toasted brazil nuts. These pasta pockets can be made and frozen, so you can whip them up whenever the cravings start calling. No more boring mid-week meals for you!

Chocolate marble banana bread

Chocolate marble banana bread is just another love declaration to my all time favorite baked bread ever. I have made so many variations and every time that one is my favorite, but I have to say banana and chocolate go so well together. And most people would say chocolate goes well with most deserty things, but banana is the perfect dance partner!  This bread is especially yum because within every bite you get a melty bit of chocolate, who can say no to that?

Chocolate chunk oatmeal raisin cookies

Chocolate chunk oatmeal raisin cookies will give you that extra oomph to give this tough week one last go. They are filled with good stuff like oats and raisins, but also with the super not so good for you stuff, chocolate. What is a cookie without enormous amounts of chocolate? But like I said these cookies have a whole lot of good in them and that's a yes in my book.

Ultimate vegan rusks

The ultimate vegan rusks are just my absolute favorite rusk recipe that I had to share. Rusks is a very well known breakfast must have in South Africa. Our parents and their parents grew up knowing this dried sweet bread as a meal that can't go without. Till today my husband and I enjoy rusks with our breakfast and shares a few bites here and there with our son. There is few that comes close to a good nostalgic rusk!

Sticky sweet butternut rolls

Sticky sweet butternut rolls must be the perfect start to 2019. Let me be very honest here, we didn't even make the new year. We passed out around ten and slept through the whole thing, I guess life does change after kids, or are there some diehard parents out there? I celebrated the new year by making these delish sticky butternut rolls. They are completely gluten-free (if you like), vegan and a big favorite side dish of mine. That's my way of celebrating the new year, lots of comfort food!

Caramel soaked pumpkin fritters

Caramel soaked pumpkin fritters are just amazing as they sound and look. I wanted to recreate my utmost favorite side dish that tastes like dessert. These fritters are life changing and you'll want to make them for every Sunday lunch from now on. I thought they might be quite fitting for the Christmas day, just because absolutely spoiling yourself is what it's all about!

Golden carrot parsnip stew

Golden carrot parsnip stew is my favorite stew at the moment. I haven't made a whole lot of stews just because soup has been on my agenda, but gosh what have I been missing. This golden lentil carrot and parsnip stew are so super delish! I have been making it on repeat three times in a row, so you got to know it's seriously good!

Chai pumpkin churros

Chai pumpkin churros are essential when the festive season is here. I know churros more as "dough fills" from my childhood. They are a whole other post by themselves and I'm sure going to get up all nostalgic about them, but for now churros, my friends. Not only do these totally vegan churros taste super delish, coated in sugar and dipped in chocolate, but these churros have two special ingredients. Homemade chai spice and sweet mashed pumpkin. Yes, these are super special churros for a super special time of the year!
