Preparing vegetarian balls needs time. During my cooking classes I hear many people who declare that they do not have time to stay in the kitchen; but I am sure, they could find it 😉 The real problem is that we give priority to other activities that are often not so important for our lives. If we really feel that cooking something, for us or our family, with high quality food is a good habit, we can create moments to do it. For these long preparations, you can, for example, organize cooking evenings with some friends, sharing the shopping, and making a lots of tasty balls for everyone. It can be a way to spend pleasant hours together and do something useful: you can then freeze your balls and create a good food supply. Here is the recipe for potato and spinach vegetarian balls … I hope you enjoy it 😉
For a light and fast brunch, a shortcrust pastry, no butter, only extra virgin olive oil, filled with soft tofu, pumpkin and toasted nuts.

A tradition that is always alive,: to stay together with my family and cook: adults and children knead, shape cookies and sweets to share at Christmas. In the kitchen, the atmosphere is warm and we have the occasion to meet each other, to listen to music, to sing Christmas songs, to talk and stay in silence and get in touch with the real Christmas atmosphere. Today I share with you a traditional family recipe: black and white cookies that I have slightly revised, using a type “1” flour, ghee instead of butter and brown cane sugar. I wish you to be able to spend happy holidays and to feel the beauty that is behind the simplest gestures and the most authentic encounters. Merry Christmas.

The colors of autumn in this single dish made of brown rice, tempeh, seasonal cooked and raw vegetables. A combination of really interesting tastes and textures.
