With just a few ingredients and some inspiration collected by browsing a cooking magazine, really tasty recipes with a great visual effect are born. Small raw veggie finger food with seasonal vegetables, enriched with fresh basil pesto. Perfect for an outdoor dinner on a warm summer evening.
A simply and fast recipe to warm and color these cold and grey autumn days 🙂 With few ingredients we are going to prepare a pumpkin and cauliflower cream with whole grain oat flour, a pinch of sweet paprika and fresh ginger. Enjoy it.
It’s finally pumpkin time: I love it so much! Today I would like to share a recipe with this colorful seasonal vegetable, which will help us to prepare a cream, also using its peel. We do not always wonder if the peel of some vegetables can be cooked, and we generally discard it. With this preparation you will see the possibility of using also the external part of the pumpkin. We will complete the dish with stems of kale. Usually when I buy some leaves of kale I find the refrigerator a little bit ‘”crowded”, in fact, its leaves are large and long. The stalks are the hardest part, so I find it practical to cut them immediately and get two benefits: a less “crowded” refrigerator ☺ and well cooked stems that require a different time to be ready, than the leaves.
I’ve met pancakes for the first time during a study holiday in England, many years ago ☺ Since then they have become a very special way to start a day.
Pancakes represent in our family a really “Special” breakfast. Generally, I prepare them with my children, on Sunday mornings, when there’s no school and the awakening is more gradual …. This is a vegan version, accompanied by the first strawberries of the season and some mint leaves. I will certainly publish many other variations … Meanwhile try this and tell me if you like 😉
Rice rolls are a very interesting preparation: they are tasty and they can be transformed in many ways. You can choose for different fillings and create your special accompanying sauce: spicy like this, or sweeter, if you want to conquer your children. In summer they are excellent even raw; their taste will be more delicate. This is the fried version 😉
It ‘s time for artichokes and there are many ways to prepare them: it will be very interesting to learn how to use all the parts. For example, the outer hard leaves can be used to prepare a decoction or a vegetable broth; forthermore the stems, boiled and blended, to prepare a good risotto. Give space to your creativity and have fun cooking artichokes in different ways. Meanwhile, I invite you to try this very simple and tasty recipe: artichokes au gratin ☺
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 …. 🙂
A really simply and fast recipe: colored, tasty and fragrant. The red beetroot is going to color the white cauliflower and, with some soy cream and green parsley, you will obtain nice contrasts of colors. A really simply plate that will “warm you up” in a cold winter day.
In this period of the year we can find puntarelle at the market…they are beautiful; in the traditional recipe they are served with an anchovy sauce. Today we are going to season them with a nice vegan sause and we will serve them with orange and fennel to create a new version. 😉
