Creamy Peach and Walnut Ice Cream {Vegan}

By 4

This is my first vegan ice cream attempt, and I can’t say how happy I am about the result! The creaminess, the sweetness, and rich taste…who would’ve thought I could obtain such an indulgence with only four ingredients and without the aid of an ice cream machine? The simple base of this ice cream is a breeze, because you actually don’t need to do anything but freeze some ingredients, then add to …

Spicy Black Bean Tostadas with Corn Salsa and Avocado

By 0

We started experimenting with spiciness recently, so ever since, we became interested in Mexican food. While tacos are a good option to quickly assemble a healthy lunch to-go, tostadas are my choice when I have guests and I need something easy to make, nourishing and appealing. The crunchy base of tostadas calls for juicy salsas, and anything fresh ingredient-related is definitely a good choice for me. This recipe is one of our summer favorites because it’s ready in less than half an hour, it’s filling and has a very …

Creamy Barlotto with Beet and Hemp

By 4

A varied diet is a first step toward a healthier lifestyle, and I always like to search for alternatives to ingredients which tend to be a staple in my meals. Brown, wild, or red rice are never missing from my pantry, and when I get bored, I replace it with barley. As versatile as rice, barley comes with a nutty flavor, a chewy consistency, and a mineral-rich nutritional profile, making it perfect for creating…

Shakshouka with Zhoug

This is probably the most popular, most nourishing and most convenient to cook (even for the most unskilled) egg recipe I’ve ever encountered in my searches and travels. Originally a North-African dish, the shakshuka recipe spread to most of the Mediterranean countries and was adapted according to the local cooking traditions. I love this dish, especially in the summertime when I can cook it with fresh, very ripe tomatoes and hand-picked aromatic herbs, and serve it over hummus or with pita bread. But, it’s actually a …
