These beautiful round zucchini are perfect to be stuffed. You can use a classic gratin filling with breadcrumbs, egg and cheese, or making a version like this one, vegan and gluten-free, using almonds and teff.
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 😉
Millet…someone think it’s animal feed 🙂 and when I say that I cook it, sometimes people get very surprised. In my son’s school, the wonderful cook prepare it in a very tasty way: children call it “Exqueezy” (a funny way to say exquisite). With this recipe I mix it together with other ingredients to prepare vegetarian croquettes. With a fresh summer salad becomes a really special dish to serve.
I love travelling: it always makes me meet different cultures, visit places caracterized from different colours and perfumes. Travelling, open my mind and makes me embrace new life styles and point of views. Every time I feel a very important personal enrichment. In addition I can eat different food. I also live the possibility to join ingredients and cooking styles to create a nice dialog between cultures…..it’s wonderful! In this recipe I make one version of falafel, that is a typical plate of Middle East Countries: these legumes fried balls are delicious with a fresh yogurt sauce.
Hi, here is a very versatile recipe. Burgers are always a huge success. Especially if you have children, this is a nice way to offer legumes or vegetables. This is a very spicy and tasty version, that I use as a starter or a light second course.
