Vegan spinach parsley soup with roasted chickpeas

Posted in: Food, Soups & Salads · 27 February 2018

The past few days have been cold as ice, with an icy wind from Siberia blowing over Europe. Luckily it’s sunny at least, so we’ve been having a couple of beautiful winter days. However, I’m ready for spring, for lighter clothes, less heavy food and spring’s fruits and vegetables. Until then I will make it through the rest of winter with colorful soups, I supose. This vegan spinach parsley soup with roasted chickpeas is a great and fast way to add as many vitamins and nutrients as possible to your soup bowl. Get the recipe below!

Vegan Khao soi inspired Thai coconut soup with winter vegetables

Posted in: Food, Main courses, Soups & Salads · 8 December 2016

Sadly, I didn’t just return from a holiday in Thailand, where I spent the days eating all sorts of tropical fruits, swimming in the sea, and exploring the nearby islands by boat. Nope. Sadly, I’m in London, where it’s as manic as can be right before the year comes to its end and everyone heads home for the festive time. So, at least I wanted to dream about holidays in a warmer hemisphere, and therefore made a vegan Khai so inspired Thai coconut soup with winter vegetables.
