For a light and fast brunch, a shortcrust pastry, no butter, only extra virgin olive oil, filled with soft tofu, pumpkin and toasted nuts. To give more color to the dish, we will cover our cake with violet and orange sweet potatoes: and here it is a vegan quiche to eat or put in the freezer and use when you don’t have time to stay in the kitchen 😉
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.
This dessert is a combination of two simply and tasty recipes: the persimmon mousse and the chocolate vegan mousse. These two preparations, enriched with caramelised pistachio nuts, give you the possibility to end in beauty and taste, an important lunch or dinner, or to complete an elegant buffet. Today I share with you also the vegan version.
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 😉
Today, with this simply recipe, we are going to combine cornmeal mush, a traditional “poor” italian food, tofu, from East, and pineappple, the most famous exotic fruit. As you know, with Gusto Vegetariano, we propose a natural vegetarian cuisine, using Km 0 products. But sometimes we make exceptions, because our intent is also to help different cultures to meet up in the kitchen 😉
We hope you will enjoy this recipe and you will be exited to try new combinations using feoreign and equosolidal products.
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.
When the days get very hot during the summer, I usually cook in the coolest hours, dishes that I can serve cold for lunch or dinner. Today I suggest you this nice match, which I decided to call “Tao” rice, consisting of two varieties of rice: the semi-whole Balilla and the Black Venere. Adding coloured raw vegetables and tofu will be a delicious dish to enjoy in this time of the year.
I don’t use to eat fresh fruits….I admit. But I’ve understood that I like fruits, but sometimes I don’t like their fibrous texture; so I’ve descovered some ways to eat it with pleasure: cooking it in a cake, putting it in a salad, making a juice or a smoothie. This is a very simple and fast recipe to start the day….in just 5 min ready!
Easter is coming and also a lot of chocolate! Like every year, in this period, I’m always thinking about sweet recipes where I can use all the chocolate that remains from the Easter’s eggs that my children have received ….To those who like dark chocolate, I dedicate a dessert served with fresh strawberries on a seeds and dried fruits base …really inviting…..This recipe is vegan and gluten free!
