Tomato Pie with Honey and Feta Cheese

By 3

I just got a notification about our Sicily plane check-in – wow, is it already June? The first half of the year passed so quickly and although I try to fill my days with meaningful actions and live mindfully, it still feels like time is going by so fast. Cooking seasonally is one of the ways to live the moment and it’s one of my favorite practices. It already is the tomato season and since I switched my cooking to the Mediterranean mode, I decided to…

Mediterranean Quinoa Salad with Roasted Veggies

Looking back to all my summer holidays from the last ten years, I’ve realized they were mostly based in different spots of the Mediterranean.

Sometimes I don’t find the time to prepare something proper to eat and if this is missing I know it’s going to be chaos all day long….

Very Easy Vegan Black Bean Soup

I like to think of soups as satiating food that doesn’t require anything else to make a filling meal. I’m making a basic cream soup I’m definitely going to need a little extra to call it a meal – some roasted chickpeas, some salad, a little sandwich. A soup has to be packed with fiber and protein, so I won’t have to waste more time preparing the little extras. This healthy black bean soup combines…
