My favourite simple and quick Hokkaido squash soup

Posted in: Food, Main courses, Soups & Salads · 19 October 2017

I believe that almost nothing beats a steaming bowl of Hokkaido squash soup on a chilly Autumn night, topped with fresh coriander, goat’s cream cheese and crispy fried prawns. It’s pure comfort food, but the healthy kind. Find the recipe for my favourite simple and quick Hokkaido squash soup below!

Spiced vegan pumpkin pie with whipped coconut cream

Posted in: Food, Sweet stuff · 9 October 2017

I won’t say it out loud yet another time that I love pumpkin endlessly. In fact, I would go so far to decide on pumpkin if I was to decide for just one vegetable which I was allowed to eat until the rest of my life. Instead, I will post the recipe for this spiced vegan pumpkin pie with whipped coconut cream quietly, and hope that you, too, love the bright orange vegetable and this pie as much as I do! Here’s to pumpkin!

Weekend breakfast: Vegan coconut protein pancakes with blueberry compote

Posted in: Breakfast, Food · 9 September 2017

Whenever I don’t feel like porridge or muesli in the morning, I’m particularly tired, it’s raining cats and dogs, I’m starving or I just want to take the time to enjoy a long breakfast, I tend to bake a huge stack of pancakes – and instantly turn into the happiest person on the planet. I collaborated with Veganz to develop a vegan pancake recipe for you and was impressed by how delicious they turned out! On the blog today: deliciously fluffy and tasteful vegan coconut protein pancakes with blueberry compote.

Happy Birthday – and a goat’s cheesecake with caramelised peaches and pistachio brittle

Posted in: Food, Sweet stuff · 24 August 2017

It was my birthday four days ago (finally! Why does this only happen once a year!?), and I took the occasion to invite my family over for a birthday brunch. Among others we celebrated with a goat’s cheesecake with caramelised peaches and pistachio brittle. Trust me, this is a dream of a cheesecake – particularly thanks to the goat’s cheese!
