Oatmeal patties (Mom’s recipe) (vegan,gf)

This recipe is perfect for a light and super easy lunch with this oatmeal mini patties. I know it’s a very simple recipe, but my mom always used to make this and it’s one of those things she just created out of the blue and that I loved, and when I moved out 11 years […]

Butternut squash and root veg spicy pie (vegan/vegetarian)

I have been writing on this blog for less than a month I think, and I am afraid I have already said too many times that I love autumn and that I love butternut squash. So I’ll just skip this bit and move to my love for spices. (Also I know that this is the […]

Easy and comforting vegan brunch

This weekend we just wanted an easy, healthy and comforting vegan Sunday brunch with the prettiest oyster mushrooms ever – found at Shepherds Bush market in the Strawberry Hill fruit and veg stand.  It is absolutely delicious and comforting and takes only 30 minutes to prepare. With this second lockdown in the UK, it’s super […]

Farinata

Today I want to share with you the very very easy recipe for one of the foods I love the most: farinata. I wouldn’t know how to translate it but variants of this recipe constitute the basis for vegan omelettes or frittatas. However, it is not the same thing at all.  Farinata is something special, […]

Black Forest Entremet (vegan)

Psychedelic Halloween Project 🙂 I love Halloween and I love entremets, so I wanted to make something special to have fun at home, since we really do not have a choice about where the entertainment should take place at the moment.  I do not usually use food colouring and if I do I use beetroot […]

Pomegranate, kiwi and pistachio tartlets (vegan)

Caramelised red onion and butternut squash quiche (vegan, gf)

As an Oddbox subscriber, I get to experience the “morning of Christmas” feeling every week – even though I always check first what’s going to be in the box, party for curiosity and partly for meal planning during the week, which, I know, sounds super boring but also having both time and mind consuming jobs, my […]

Juniper Onion Tarte Tatin (vegan)

This is a very simple recipe, puff pastry excluded. When I learnt how to make my own vegan puff pastry I was overjoyed – the store bought one, even the allergen free one, sometimes I found it difficult to digest. In addition, I have to say that the home made version tastes better than the […]

Tiramisù Mousse Cake (vegan)

I prepared this recipe for my husband’s birthday, as he is one of the greatest (the greatest, perhaps) fans of tiramisu. Tiramisu is a pretty classic and famous Italian dessert, which in its original version consists of coffee soaked savoiardi (super soft biscuits made with egg whites), mascarpone cream and cocoa powder. Tiramisu is usually […]

Vegan “curry pan”

Okay, these are not proper curry pans – this recipe is my version of the amazing Tim Anderson’s version from Tokyo Stories – I just veganised it, and air fried it and added some lighter options and some different possible fillings, because I made this quite often and it rarely happened that I had the […]
