How to make different, the usual vegetables…With a little bit of creativity we can make a tasty, colored cream to replace a classic “pinzimonio”. With few ingredients a simply and fast recipe with the scent of mint leaves and lemon, flavoured with salted capers from La Nicchia di Pantelleria.
Is asparagus time…there are so many recipes with this vegetable rich of fibres, vitamins and mineral salts! But how to use them without waste? In this very tasty cream, I use to cook, stems separately, in boiling water and mix them with chickpeas and thaini sauce to obtain a nice dress for raw or lightly sautée vegetables. Enjoy it 😉
When the heat comes but it’s no time yet for holiday, we feel more and more the desire to travel and to see new places: those who are still at work can only use their imagination or, as I do in the kitchen, prepare ethnic dishes that makes us think about exotic countries 😉 This aubergine cream is inspired by the Baba Ghanoush, typical sauce of Middle Eastern regions, today revisited for you: the garlic is rubbed directly on bread, to flavor it, and, instead of mint, I’ve used a mixture of sage and thyme leaves, fresh from my small aromatic garden.
“Home made” mayonnaise, in two minutes ready!
I love this recipe because it is simply and fast; furthermore I can prepare a mayonnaise without using eggs, which can be potentially dangerous if you eat them raw (as they should be in the classic mayonnaise recipe) and are still often present in so many preparations (desserts or fresh pasta); another reason is because industrial preparations often contain many flavors and sugar. With this recipe, in which we can use both almond milk and soy milk, we will get a really extraordinary result; in addition we will be able to flavor our sauce as we like, making different types also thinking about the use we have to make.
