Two dishes of different traditions meet together: linguine with pesto and sushi … what do you think, do you want to try? I am attracted by harmony and beauty of all Japanese dishes. In any Japanese restaurant, dishes will always be served with great care and attention to beauty. This aspect interests me a lot, because as I said in one of the last posts, it is important to take care of aspects like beauty and harmony. Today I would like to combine two traditions: I was in Liguria and I was looking to a book specialized in Japanese cuisine; this is how “Mediterranean sushi” was born. The difficulty is quite high: you will need patience to learn how to make these rolls well … but if you like the idea, I hope you will be excited enough to try and try again until you will reach a good result. If I made it, you can make it. Enjoy the path 😉
Melon is really one of my favorite fruits. In summer my body feels more the need to eat foods rich of water. The colorful salad I’m sharing with you today can be a creative idea to combine this fruit with seasonal vegetables and basil, more fragrant than ever, in this time of year. Enjoy your meal 😉
I have a beautiful memory of when I was a little girl and me and my family went to the mountains for the winter holidays; on the way back, we always used to stop in a small place in Trentino, and in particular in a pastry bakery. It was like a ritual: my mother always bought some apple strudel and, for her little girl, the carrot cake … I was delighted, because is one of those desserts I prefere. Today, also my daughter likes it very much and I use to prepare it in a sugar-free variant. In this recipe I’m sharing with you, I’ve used hazelnuts instead of almonds and added fresh ginger. Furthermore you’ll see it in a muffin version … nice aren’t they? 😉
Have you ever tried the different taste of a just gathered vegetable and one that has been in refrigerating rooms for many days? Well… if not, you can make an experience now, with this very simply recipe, that can be a really tasty side dish: the only rule to respect is to search for seasonal and km 0 vegetbales. If they are just gathered, they will have a better taste and also a simply preparation like this, will be always appreciated.
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 😉
