Whole Wheat Coffee Muffins // Muffins integrali al caffè

Wednesday, June 29, 2016

 I am not much of a baker because there are rules that have to be followed in order to get good results and because it is extremely hard to make a dessert that both tastes good and is healthy. But since I had some kefir left, I attempted at making muffins from scratch for the first time and I gotta say I'm pretty happy with the result.

Zucchini Noodles with Creamy Avocado and Spinach Sauce // Noodles di zucchina con salsa cremosa all'avocado e spinaci

Monday, June 27, 2016

Zucchini have many uses, and among them all, spiralizing them to make noodles is definitely the most cool of the ways. They even have a cool name, zoodles.

While doing researched for my new mission that is making recipes from all around the world, I stumbled upon a stunning pink soup. As I've already said in the past, pink food is absolutely gorgeous, so I had to try it.

Spicy Seared Tofu // Tofu saltato piccante

Wednesday, June 22, 2016

It all started with me wanting to make scrambled tofu, realizing the new brand I bought was too soft for that, and eventually realizing it actually wasn't that soft, but at that point I already had given up on the idea of having scrambled tofu.

Vegan Ravioli with Black Tea and Raisin Sauce // Ravioli vegani con salsa al tè nero e uvetta

Monday, June 20, 2016

 Who doesn't love ravioli? I sure do, and I love my ravioli homemade.

Still it is always nice to have a package of fresh pasta stocked in your fridge. It is versatile. It is fast and easy. And with the right sauce it gets harder to tell the difference. Sure, you have to keep it stocked in your fridge, but you will be rewarded with this delicious and quick ravioli dish with a black tea and raisins sauce.

Orange Cinnamon Granola // Granola all'arancia e cannella

Sunday, June 19, 2016

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day and it's extremely important to keep a healthy lifestyle. But because of our crazy, busy schedule, most of us end up having nothing, or eating some junk food on the go.

Salmon Tartare with Avocado and Mango // Tartare di salmone con avocado e mango

Friday, June 17, 2016

For a while now I've been trying to find a particular way to use smoked salmon, and I figured why not tartare? It is a very chic way to serve food.

Grilled Chicken and Apple Salad // Insalata di pollo e mela grigliati

Wednesday, June 15, 2016

Have you ever had grilled Granny Smith apples? If you haven't, I'm telling you right now that you will love them! They taste absolutely amazing! I don't know what it is, if it's the heat that brings out of them an incredible sweetness, or the fact that I used lime juice, but these apples really are an explosion of flavour. They are so good, I don't even know how to describe it!

Zucchini Crust Pizza with Mushrooms, Spinach and Cherry Tomatoes // Pizza di zucchine con funghi, spinaci e pomodorini

Monday, June 13, 2016

I actually made this a while ago, anyway, I was wandering through the supermarket's shelves when I laid my eyes on this vegan cheese that is soy-free - it's actually made with rice - and looks just like mozzarella. It was love at first sight, and we made... pizza! A gluten-free, vegan pizza that everyone can enjoy.

Guess what day is today? That's right, it's International Falafel Day.

Arguably the most famous and loved balls/patties - it all depends by how you shape them -, falafel is a traditional Middle Eastern food made from ground chickpeas, fava beans, or a combination of both. The basic recipe is so simple, it is very easy to make your own version, adjusting herbs and spices to your liking.

Salade Niçoise

Friday, June 10, 2016

The other thing I beath other than air is football, so to celebrate the opening of Euro 2016 I made salade niçoise, this French salad full of flavour and texture that many don't seem to get right.

Greek Zucchini Gratin // Gratin greco di zucchine

Wednesday, June 08, 2016

Greek... gratin? I know, it doesn't make a lot of sense, gratins originated in France, are part of their cuisine and don't have anything to do with Greece. But what if instead of using melty cheese like a normal person would do, I use greek yogurt and feta? Well, I guess that makes a hell of a difference, doesn't it?

Spicy Soya Chunks // Bocconcini di soia speziati

Monday, June 06, 2016

Some time ago I made the terrible mistake of buying soya chunks. Why terrible you ask? Because I genuinely had no idea how to use them. I knew they are used to replace meat, but I'm not much of a meat cooker, or eater, so still unknown territory to me.

Vegan Coffee-Flavoured Chocolate Mousse // Mousse vegana al cioccolato all'aroma di caffè

Saturday, June 04, 2016

Chocolate Mousse is a typical unhealthy dessert with heavy cream and a lot of sugar, so I accepted the challenge to make it healthy, completely guilt-free and quite nutritious as well.

Vegan Caprese Risotto // Risotto Caprese vegano

Thursday, June 02, 2016

Caprese is usually a simple Italian salad made of fresh Buffalo mozzarella, tomatoes, and basil seasoned with salt and olive oil. It is a wonderful combination of flavours, it is fresh and perfect for the summer.

The Ultimate Buddha Bowl

Wednesday, June 01, 2016

Before you start assuming I am a Buddhist, let me explain what a Buddha Bowl is. It is a bowl so rich and loaded with goodness that after eating it will make you look like the Buddha, because of the full belly.
