Another recipe remembering India: naan, a very simple dough, rolled out like piadina, but baked enriched with sesame seeds. Finally seasoned with ghee (http://www.gustovegetariano.com/en/clarified-butter-ghee/). I find naan a very nice alternative to bread. Easy and fast to prepare, can be consumed warm as an appetizer or together with legumes and vegetables.
Another sweet recipe to reuse scraps of a juice extractor … Last week we saw the possibility to prepare a homemade oat drink. Today we are going to find out together how to reuse oat scraps, cooking these excellent vegan cookies … I’m sure, you will be amazed to discover how good they are ☺
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 😉
Another time so many colors on our table, with this flan that you can eat as a simply starter or as a second course. We are going to serve it on a violet béchamel, with purple cabbage. Finally we will garnish with some parmesan slices and walnuts. Enjoy 😉
When I was a little girl, my family and I used to have sunday lunch at my grandmom’s house. She often prepared a batter to fry some vegetables. It was a really tasty appetizer: usually carrots and zucchini, cut into small sticks. I loved them!
Today I’ve found in my garden some beautiful sage leaves, and I’m going to prepare a nice tempura to serve before a special lunch.
Many years ago, my husband and I, went in a very nice restaurant, where we ate divinely. But the most beautyful memory of that night is about the hospitality: when we arrived, the owner’s wife came to us with a bright smile and served us some grissini, a warm focaccia and a glass of white wine, in front of a fireplace. We stay there for about 10 minutes, talking with other guests. It was a great start, followed by an unforgettable dinner. That way of reciving, touched my heart. From that day, when I have guests for dinner, I try always to create that magic moment to recive with care, people who are joining me for dinner. These focaccias are really perfect for a simply wellcome start: you can cook them before and keep warm till the right moment to serve with a glass of wine.
