Creamy Tomato Soup // Vellutata di pomodoro

Friday, July 29, 2016


Yes, I'm still making soups. Whether smoking hot or freezing cold outside, I do always enjoy a bowl of warm soup. What can I tell you, I love them. They are one of the easiest things to cook, just think about a few flavours that taste good together, throw them in a pot and stir.

Hasselback Zucchini with Feta // Zucchine hasselback con feta

Wednesday, July 27, 2016


I guess I lived under a rock for the past years because I've heard about hasselback zucchini for the first time not a long time ago.

Green Quinoa Salad // Insalata verde di quinoa

Monday, July 25, 2016


I'm pretty sure I already had the chance to tell you how much I love green. Just in case I hadn't, here's a green quinoa salad.

Miso Coconut Roasted Mushrooms // Funghi arrostiti al miso e cocco

Friday, July 22, 2016


I don't know about you, but I could eat mushrooms all day long, especially if they are incredibly cute like tiny cremini mushrooms. I love them so much, I'd be able to make a meal out of them. And that's exactly what I did with these Miso Coconut Roasted Mushrooms.

Beet Risotto // Risotto alla barbabietola

Wednesday, July 20, 2016


After my successful Vegan Caprese risotto, I decided to challenge fate again and attempt at making another risotto. And if the first time it's the beginners luck, the second time it's the skills. Am I being too modest?

Mediterranean Quinoa Salad // Insalata mediterranea di quinoa

Monday, July 18, 2016


It was a very hot day in August last year when I cooked quinoa for the first time. I had found a recipe on YouTube, I didn't have all the ingredients, and at the time I didn't like some of them, so I used what I add. The result was amazing.

Spicy Tahini Steamed Corn // Pannocchia al vapore piccante con tahina

Friday, July 15, 2016


If there's something I've learnt watching American films is that nothing says summer like corn on the cob.

Linguine with Zucchini and "Blue Cheese" Sauce // Linguine con salsa di zucchine e "gorgonzola"

Wednesday, July 13, 2016


 Who said that a linguine dish has to be made with fish in order to be appealing? Or that it does need animal fats to be tasty? I certainly didn't, and these linguine with zucchini and "blue cheese" sauce are the proof that you can eat healthy without giving up on flavour.

Zucchini Noodles with Goat Cheese Sauce // Noodles di zucchine con salsa di formaggio di capra

Monday, July 11, 2016


Since many people appreciated my Zucchini Noodles with Creamy Avocado and Spinach Sauce, I decided to come back with another zoodle recipe for you.

Cantaloupe Breakfast Bowl

Saturday, July 09, 2016


On summertime I have a lot of yogurt, fruit and granola for breakfast, but I usually use boring bowls.

I don't know if it's a new trend or anything, but I've seen cantaloupe bowls all over the internet. Instagram, other blogs, you name it. So I picked a cantaloupe at the store, and the next morning this cutie was born. It is quick and easy to make, it is healthy, and you can put anything in there.

Millet Pizza with Grilled Zucchini // Pizza al miglio con zucchine grigliate

Friday, July 08, 2016


I know what you're thinking, this girl doesn't like normal pizza. Well, while I do enjoy having a normal pizza once in a while, I don't want to work hard to make it at home. But sometimes I crave it, so I'm always trying to find quicker and more healthy alternatives to pizza dough.

Vinegret

Wednesday, July 06, 2016


I'm not sure if they are in season or not, but there's beets coming out of my garden and not using them would be a crime.

Summer Kamut Salad // Insalata di Kamut estiva

Monday, July 04, 2016


The weather outside is finally beautiful, and there's nothing more refreshing on a hot day than having something cool to eat or drink.

Blueberry Pie

Saturday, July 02, 2016


My mother is the family baker, so whenever my family is invited over for lunch or dinner, we always bring a delicious dessert over. Last Thursday we were invited for a barbecue, and I decided to do something completely crazy, make my first pie ever.

Oven Baked Friggitelli with Buckwheat and Spinach // Friggitelli al forno con grano saraceno e spinaci

Friday, July 01, 2016


When wandering around the supermarket I see something green, it becomes almost impossible for me to resist, especially if we are talking about beautiful green bell peppers. But friggitelli aren't just green bell peppers, they have a slightly sweet note which makes them even more tasty and desirable.
