If you think of wheat flour and cheese mountains as soon as someone says “pizza“, then you may be surprised to hear that vegan and gluten-free pizzas can taste amazing, too! But don’t get me wrong: There’s no such thing like an Italian wood-fired pizza. However, if you are looking for the occasional plant-based and somehow “healthier“ pizza alternative, today’s recipe is for you: A vegan gluten-free pizza with kale pesto. Let’s fight any upcoming November blues with all that green!
How can I possibly post two plum recipes within one week, you may wonder, but I say: If they’re as sweet and indulgent as at this current time of the year, then clearly there is need for it! Let me introduce you to one of my favourite childhood breakfasts today: oven-baked plum jam, ideally served on freshly baked bread. Let’s breakfast!
I guess I chose the entire colour palette for today’s delicious, simple and quick recipe: an Autumn harvest salad with amaranth and roquefort. Plus, there’s oven-baked squash, sweet grapes, fruits cranberries and crunchy hazelnuts, too, so let me warn you: You may never want to eat a different salad in your life again!
I’m being honest with you: I’ve never made a galette in my life – until this one. But with plum season being at its peak, I challenged myself to make a plum cake that is both good-looking in pictures and utterly delicious. It had to be a galette, I figured, after some solid research on social media. So, here’s a new recipe for you: a buckwheat plum galette with thyme and whipped coconut cream. Whoa!
If there was one squash-obsessed person on this planet, I’m pretty sure it would be me. I literally eat squash three times a day these days – mixed into porridges, baked over salads, blended into soups or stirred into curries. Speaking of curry: I’ve created a new recipe for you! Vegan butternut squash curry with red lentils and maple-glazed tofu! Yup, it’s as indulgent and creamy and warming as it sounds!
Ok, ok, Summer is over, but who says we cannot eat summer granola in Autumn, too? To be honest, I really did not find any time to upload a new video earlier than today. But here we go: A new vlog is waiting for you on my Youtube channel! We are making homemade granola with coconut, apricots and mangos – my all-time favourite granola, and I actually wish I could send you some of its delicious smell through your screens!
There is no doubt about the fact that Autumn has arrived, and you know what? I love it! For many years Autumn has been my favourite season, not only because I find it the most cosy one. There’s more to it – think delicious fruits and veggies, for instance! Late summery plums and a stack of vegan pancakes with chia seeds make a perfect breakfast in bed and a wonderful beginning of Autumn!
As long as I can remember, sleep has sadly been a challenge for me. Whilst I was scared of going to bed and falling asleep as a child, later, when I moved to Berlin as a student, I remember being most scared of noises both in- and outside the house I lived in. I don’t quite remember the time when my difficulties to find sleep turned into an actual disorder, however, it is a fact that, for quite a few years so far, I struggle to sleep – sometimes more, sometimes less. I am currently stuck in a “bad“ phase, and since I think about sleep a lot anyway, I thought I finally want to write about it, too. Perhaps to give those of you, who have similar problems, tips, and to help others to better understand what it means to suffer from insomnia.
