Creole Shrimp and Okra Gumbo // Gumbo creole di gamberi e okra

Friday, September 30, 2016

I've been wanting to try gumbo for a while now but  never had the chance because I live miles away from Louisiana - on the other part of the world, actually.

Liver and Onions with Potatoes and Zucchini // Fegato e cipolle con patate e zucchine

Wednesday, September 28, 2016

 I used to be one of those people disgusted by liver, and the only thought of it would make me sick. And eating it was definitely not something I would have enjoyed to do.

Poached Egg with Portobello Mushroom, Tomatoes and Arugula // Uovo in camicia con fungo Portobello, pomodori e rucola

Monday, September 26, 2016

After having searched far and wide for months - almost an year actually -, I've finally found Portobello mushrooms. I'm not sure I can put down on words how excited I was when I saw those beautiful, big mushrooms, but it was wonderful.

Vegan Miso Soup with Ravioli // Zuppa di miso con ravioli vegan

Friday, September 23, 2016

I love miso soup. It's so warm and comforting and it's just perfect with its little bites of tofu and seaweed in every scoop.

How to Make Kombu Dashi // Come fare il kombu dashi

Wednesday, September 21, 2016

Last time when I made a How to post, it was sauerkraut. Today I'm going to Asia and I'm sharing with you how to make Kombu Dashi.

Beef Burger Salad // Burger di manzo con insalata

Monday, September 19, 2016

Whenever I think of healthy foods, burgers are definitely not something that comes to my mind. Actually, it is quite the opposite. In fact, burgers are the junk foods par excellence, and that's why I don't like them.

Avocado Chocolate Mousse // Mousse di avocado e cioccolato

Friday, September 16, 2016

I remember exactly when I made my first avocado chocolate mousse. It was last year, on December the 16th, and I remember it so well because it was the day the new Star Wars came out. As the avid fan I am, I bought the ticket for the first available screening which was at 2:30 pm, and long story short I had to eat something fast because I am a tremendously slow eater.

Quinoa with Okra and Tomatoes // Quinoa con okra e pomodori

Wednesday, September 14, 2016

A few weeks ago I picked up some fresh okra from my vegetable garden. I had never had okra before so I was quite excited to try them, and oh my god, they were delicious. Seriously, before them, I had no idea anyone could love a vegetable so much!

Amaranth Porridge with Shrimps // Porridge di amaranto con gamberetti

Monday, September 12, 2016

I love porridge. It is comforting, hearty, easy to make and there's really no better way to warm your day than starting off with a hot breakfast.

Sweet Potato Mini Pizzas // Pizzette di patata dolce

Friday, September 09, 2016

In a world where people are always looking for the option with less calories - example, eggplant pizzas, zucchini pizzas -, I'm bringing you a more delicious recipe. I'm not saying eggplants or zucchini aren't good, but let's be honest, they cannot compete with sweet potatoes.

Barley Salad with Eggplant, Tuna and Sun-Dried Tomatoes // Insalata di orzo con melanzana, tonno e pomodori secchi

Wednesday, September 07, 2016

You know what I've just realised? That summer is coming to an end and so is eggplant season and I haven't made any recipe with this wonderful vegetable.

Linguine with Roasted Red Pepper Sauce // Linguine con salsa di peperone rosso arrosto

Monday, September 05, 2016

Here I am, finally re-making this roasted red pepper sauce that I've been meaning to make for months. It is creamy, smooth, savory and slightly sweet, and when it comes to pasta, it makes the perfect alternative to tomato sauce.

Mango and Coconut Pancakes // Pancakes al mango e cocco

Sunday, September 04, 2016

It's been a while since I made (sweet) pancakes so I figured it was about time. Also, there's nothing better than starting the day with something so delicious, yet healthy. And everyone can enjoy this recipe, unless you're allergic to coconut. In that case I feel for you.

Banana Coffee Ice Cream // Gelato alla banana e caffè

Friday, September 02, 2016

Just like everybody else, I also happen to crave ice cream throughout the summer months. Maybe it's because I grew up eating it and I have good memories about it. Or maybe it's because it's hot outside and I need something to cool down.
