I use to prepare juices with fruits and vegetables, and every time I ask myself how to reuse the fibrous parts of carrots, beetroots, apples etc. I really love “recycle”… also when I find something old and used, I feel excited when it comes a good idea to use it another time. The same is in the kitchen: all the time I have to discard something for some preparations I think about different ways to “reuse”; it is also a nice exercise to stay in the field of possibilities and be creative in front of a question: “What can I do with this?”.
I don’t have animals or chickens wich would be very satisfied from these food scraps, so I share with you this wonderful idea: just adding some simple ingredients you will cook a vegan and sugar free carrot and beetroot cake… really tasty 😉
I don’t use to eat fresh fruits….I admit. But I’ve understood that I like fruits, but sometimes I don’t like their fibrous texture; so I’ve descovered some ways to eat it with pleasure: cooking it in a cake, putting it in a salad, making a juice or a smoothie. This is a very simple and fast recipe to start the day….in just 5 min ready!
In my experience, cooking “light desserts” is very satisfying: first, because I can achieve excellent results abstaining from using ingredients wich are often part of daily nutrition; I’m talking about eggs, milk, yeasts, refined flours and sugars … these are vegetarian ingredients, but they should be limited. Secondly, I realize that, gradually, my palate becames more perceptible; this allows me to enjoy also the simple and light tastes.
Easter is coming and also a lot of chocolate! Like every year, in this period, I’m always thinking about sweet recipes where I can use all the chocolate that remains from the Easter’s eggs that my children have received ….To those who like dark chocolate, I dedicate a dessert served with fresh strawberries on a seeds and dried fruits base …really inviting…..This recipe is vegan and gluten free!
