Homemade tapas: patatas bravas & mojo verde and pimientos de padrón

Posted in: Food, Main courses · 16 July 2018

What a great summer it is! Regardless of where I have been traveling to recently (think Hamburg, Berlin and back to Frankfurt), the sun is shining non-stop, temperatures are making us spend even late nights outside, and cold drinks and food enjoyed outside seem to be the only appropriate way to eat and drink. I am therefore sharing three recipes for homemade tapas with you today: patatas bravas with mojo verde and pimientos de padrón.

Coconut lemon aqua smoothie bowl

Posted in: Breakfast, Food · 4 July 2018

It’s a little quiet these days in my kitchen, and therefore here on the blog. I am suffering from the heat, plus there are a few personal issues I have to take care of at the moment, which make it hard to concentrate and find time to care about the blog with as much passion and energy as I wish to do. I hope you bear with me in the meantime! Nonetheless, there is one recipe which I created for Veganz and which suits the heat wave perfectly well, and which I therefore would like to share with you today: a coconut lemon aqua smoothie bowl!

Summery coleslaw with yogurt mustard dressing and goat’s cream cheese

Posted in: Food, Soups & Salads · 22 June 2018

I know I said earlier (a few blogposts ago) that I could eat Vietnamese food all summer long. That was, however, only part of the truth, because salads are just as needed during the hot season, I believe. Today’s recipe is another one from my series for Florette Deutschland. I made a summery coleslaw with yogurt mustard dressing and goat’s cream cheese.

This blog post has been in the pipeline for way too long, please excuse the silence here. A lot has been going on, both professionally as well as in my private life.

Having said that, there will be another Asian-inspired recipe coming to the blog later this week – but you can never have enough recipes for rice noodle salads, soy-glazed tofu and peanut sauce, can you? There you go: Today’s recipe is a glass noodle salad with peanut sauce and marinated smoked tofu.
