Creamy Peas Hummus

I love dips (as you may have noticed), in particular Hummus. I normally like to stick to the traditional recipe. There was one time when I happened to not have chickpeas at home. I found peas and I thought ‘why not?’. I was surprised about how delicious it turned out to be. From then on, this Creamy Peas Hummus became one of my favourite dips recipe.

This is super easy and fast to do recipe – just like I like it. It takes about 5 minutes to do and all you need is a maximum of 6 ingredients and a blender.

Buckwheat with mushrooms spinach & tahini sauce

Today’s dish is incredibly simple to do: with only 7 ingredients, it is very nourishing and delicious. The main ingredient is buckwheat. Although it has wheat in its name, it doesn’t contain any wheat, nor gluten. It is often treated as a grain but it doesn’t come from grass. Instead, it is a seed of a plant, and due to the fact that it shares a lot of similar properties with cereals, it’s considered a pseudo-cereal. Its health benefits are unquestionable: amongst others, it is a great source of protein, complex carbs, fibre, iron, and vitamin B. On top of it, the taste is subtle, amazing, and its texture incredibly satisfying!

Melitzanosalata

Today’s recipe is all about aubergines! The Mediterranean diet is well known for being very varied, rich and delicious. The range of vegetables and fruits that you can find is wide and often easy to find something on the season. Some of them you can actually find locally in the United Kingdom. Others are normally imported as they don’t grow efficiently enough to respond to the demand.

Autumn Bowl with Thyme Squash, Fried Mushrooms, Quinoa and Almond/Dill Dressing

I love the cooking concept of bowls. You simply combine different delicious dishes, nicely arranged in bowls, to get an even more delicious complete meal. It is advantageous to choose components with different colors so that the bowl looks particularly beautiful. You can use all your leftovers in bowls, which is great. You can also be creative and add whatever you feel like today. The world of plant-based foods is so incredibly versatile. I am still thrilled every day. ?

Of course, I only use local and seasonal vegetables in my bowls. What Swiss nature has to offer in autumn, is fantastic. This is why I’ve decided to write down the recipe for an Autumn Bowl.

Noodles with Japanese Sesame Sauce and Ginger Veggies

In my last article I have told you how I follow a plant-based diet while travelling. The idea for this article came spontaneously during my three-week trip in Japan. There, it was in fact not always easy to get plant-based dishes. However, I discovered and tried a lot – which was absolutely worth it. I really like the Japanese cuisine. Often, the foods such as rice, noodles, vegetables, tofu, mushrooms, etc. were not very flavorful. Crucial for the taste was the sauce. And whenever I found sesame sauce on my dish, I was very happy because it was generally really really delicious. At the same time sweet, slightly acidic, with intense sesame flavor and the Japanese touch due to the soy sauce. Once I was back in Switzerland, I tried to make it myself. My first attempt contained about 10 ingredients. Only at the second attempt, I realized that it actually requires only 5 ingredients. Like this, I absolutely loved my homemade sesame sauce. And it’s also like this that I want to share it with you now!
