When you have the opportunity to leave near a market of organic and km 0 producers, you can choose from a large variety of products, which generally you don’t see in a traditional supermarket, because unfortunately it is all a bit standardised. These varieties always amaze and are good inspirations for creative recipes. For example, with a bunch of colored chards like these, look what a wonderful dish you can prepare …. 🙂
Some monthes ago I was practising in a cooking class and the Chef told us how important is to stop each days and cook for at least half an hour to prepare a good balanced plate for us or our friends and family. This is the best condition we can try to recreate every day; unfortunately, it is not always an achievable goal. So, today, I share with you a quick and light recipe to use on one of those days, when you do not have time to stay in the kitchen, but you have no desire to eat a simply sandwich 😉 A beautiful colorful smoothie you can prepare in a few minutes and enjoy in your short break.
Flans are always very elegant and attractive; they can be a nice appetizer or a light side dish, especially if you mix classical ingredients (like eggs and cheese) with some lighter ones; in this case I’ve used soy cream instead of fresh cream. Flans can be served in different kind of ways: here is a delicious version with a velvet carrot and curcuma cream.
