    Lentil Balls with Wild Garlic Sauce

    Hi everybody

    I hope you’re all enjoying spring. Spring is my favorite season of the year. I love how everything is starting to grow and live again. Furthermore, I really enjoy those sunny days that are not too hot yet, but still refreshing. Among others, nature offers us wild garlic that has the potential to transform any dish even if you add only a small amount thanks to its strong flavor. Today, I show you how I use it in a super creamy white sauce that tastes awesome combined with homemade lentil balls.

    Soft and Moist Veggie Muffins

    I use my muffin cups very often. Since we travel a lot, we need snacks that can be easily transported. Sweet muffins with all kinds of flavors of fruits, spices, and nuts are excellent. But sometimes we need something salty on the road. Thus, the idea of ​​vegetable muffins has arisen. They are perfect as a salty snack, as a lunch on the go for example with a lentil salad, as a hearty breakfast, as a starter with a green salad, as a party snack for children as well as for adults or as part of a picnic. You can enjoy them either warm or cold. They are healthy and completely plant-based, have a perfectly moist consistency and taste delicious. For a gluten-free version, you can use brown rice flour. That works very well. Depending on the season, you can vary with the vegetables. In summer, for example, the leeks can be replaced by zucchini. The following suggestion with carrots and leeks is our favorite and fits in the beginning of spring. So start baking! 🙂

    Why plant-based (vegan)? Part 2 – Beyond Local

    Sustainability is on everyone’s lips. This is reflected in the acquaintance, who increasingly ditches meat, in the advertising of well-known sugar water corporations as well as in the growing alternative offer of the large supermarket chains. We are aware that we only have this one planet to live, and we adapt our lifestyle to this realization in both small and large. This includes things like the renouncement of unnecessary plastic waste or deliberately rare flying. But how far the influence of our diet reaches, how much lies in our hand and how we can change the world with our food choice, we’re usually not aware of.
