When Anya (golubkakitchen.com) sent me a message that she would like to send me a copy of her new published cookbook “Simply Vibrant” I was very exited because I loved her blog for a many years since I only started my food journey. Anya makes beautiful and in the same time simple food which is mostly vegan and plant based. I love her clever ideas about the cooking process and ingredients combinations! Although I am not a vegan I like cooking vegan friendly food and finding unusual substitutions for basic ingredients. So there are a lot of reasons why I have put “Simply Vibrant” cookbook on my kitchen bookshelf.
When it comes to my favourite quick lunch I would probably say Shakshuka. This dish is very easy to make, it has a lot of variations so you can use the ingredients you have in your fridge.
I’ve tried to cook this dish with different combinations of ingredients: with olives, capers, anchovy, with sweet pepper, etc. but I always come back to this simple variation with blue cheese addition, so I can say this is my ultimate shakshuka recipe. I would be happy to hear about your shakshuka recipe too!
These crepes are not only very attractive but also are so simple to make that I actually made them using just one hand and holding my baby in another one. These crepes make an excellent quick lunch or breakfast. They’re also one of my favourite options for the kids’ lunches.
I love spinach because it is an excellent source of vitamin K, zinc, folic acid, magnesium, iron, calcium and vitamin C. Should I tell more?
If you haven’t got Nina Olsson’s book “Bowls of Goodness” yet this post is the answer why you should have! I was very exited when Nina sent me a copy of her brand new book and couldn’t wait until I could try one of her recipes. Right after I started turning the pages, I stumbled upon one of the very first recipes. Buckwheat porridge with pear and rhubarb compote!
I’m in the process of choosing which recipes to do and share on the blog. Any ideas? This post I’ve made about a month ago but didn’t have a chance to posting it. So here it is! The simplest basic recipe of granola.
Nowadays we can buy any jam we want in the supermarket. There are plenty of flavours: classic sweet and savoury, herbed jams, vegetable jams, etc… I can’t call myself a person who make a huge amount of jam every season, but there is always something magical in “jam-making” process. Something from childhood, which always reminds me my mum and those thrilling feelings that I’ve felt every time i opened a jam jar. Today I want to share a recipe of one of my favourite jams – peach jam. Absolutely simple to make and absolutely delicious to eat!
Summer is perfect for one-day trips, picnics and just for enjoying a lunch sitting on the grass in the park. London parks are so overcrowded in this period. And it’s amazing!
Me, Nick and our beagle Chantal adore to go to the parks on weekends. I like to make lunch, pack it and eat it outdoors. More often I buy a few local cheeses, ham, fresh bread, jam and fruits. I also make wrapped food because it is easy to take it away. I never tried to make homemade wraps so it is my first flatbread. I want to say it’s a genius idea! Homemade flatbread are cheaper than in stores and are easy peasy to make. These flatbreads were made with wholegrain flour and without eggs. Just flour and yoghurt. And they are delicious trust me! It looks like I will never buy any wraps in the store again.
