    Easy roasted red pepper Pesto (alla Calabrese – Vegan)

    July 22, 2019Melanie

    Finally there is my first pasta recipe on this blog. Actually, I’m a big pasta fan and I also eat pasta very often. Nevertheless, it took me so long to make my first pasta post because I admit that until recently I often didn’t feel like making my own sauces. Firstly, I needed a good chopper for most sauces and secondly, pasta is my to-go food when it has to be quick. This means that I quickly cook my pasta and finally I top it with a ready-made sauce. But with ready-made sauces I make sure that they are at…

The most important thing about green Thai Curry is, of course, the paste. However, I didn’t make it myself. You can buy good curry pastes in the supermarket, Asia shop or online. Make sure…

    April 12, 2019Melanie

    I’ve been planning to make roasted cauliflower for a long time. You can see cauliflower everywhere, especially when you’re looking for inspiration on Pinterest or Instagram. You just can’t get past roasted or cauliflower wing. At first, I thought what’s so special about it?! To be honest, I’ve eaten cauliflower rarely before. Simply because I’m a big broccoli fan and have always chosen this one. How to roast cauliflower? If you find your cauliflower as boring as I did, be careful, because the roasted cauliflower is anything but boring. On the one hand, the roasted cauliflower becomes crispy and develops…

    Easy Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins

    March 13, 2019Melanie

    Banana chocolate chip muffins Recently I had overripe bananas left and I thought I could try a new recipe with bananas. Banana bread is also very tasty but muffins are made even faster and you can take them to-go. This is also true for my Cookie Dough Bites. What makes these chocolate banana muffins so special? They mainly consist of natural sweetness from the bananas because the riper the bananas are the the muffins become sweeter. Depending on how sweet you like it you only need to add a small amount of sugar (or other sweeteners) at all. I prefer…

    Vegan Yellow Curry with Tofu

    February 27, 2019Melanie

    Curry has become my absolute favorite food. I never would have thought that. I used to eat only standard dishes and I actually did not know any international dishes. Fortunately, that has changed. Nowadays I try a lot of different meals. What is so special about this yellow curry with tofu? The curry is very quick to make. Of course, you prepare your ingredients first but after that, you just put everything together in a wok or pan. So you’ve cooked a fast, healthy dish that tastes great!

    February 1, 2019Melanie

    Curry Fan? Today I have a delicious lunch or dinner idea 🙂 I never thought I’d try so many different curry variations but it’s actually been that way for about a year now. At first I wasn’t a fan of Chili but that has completely changed. I still don’t like my dish too spicy. First I discovered my love for Indian curry in a restaurant. Then I just wanted to try it at home and now I make the dish almost only at home. I had a similar experience with Thai Curry. Curry Variations At first I thought it would…

    Savory and simple pumpkin meals As promised I have two savory and simple pumpkin dishes for you this time. I have become a big pumpkin fan this year. I liked pumpkin before but this year I’ve tried some new delicious variations and it´s great what you can do with a pumpkin. Especially the pumpkin pancakes surprised me. The pumpkin can also be used for gluten-free dishes (such as pumpkin bread or sweet desserts). Why use fennel more often? I prepared both pumpkin versions in the oven. The first version is a kind of Buddha Bowl. I think potatoes and pumpkin…

  • Basic Chia Pudding and a Baked Apple Variation (gluten free, sugar free)

    January 25, 2019Melanie

    Chia Pudding – healthy classic breakfast Chia Pudding is a healthy classic breakfast variation or very good as a snack in between. I think that Chia Pudding is a good healthy alternative to a standard breakfast like rolls, toast or unhealthy chocolate cornflakes. The pudding is especially suitable for people who pay attention to a clean eating diet or for those who don’t like to eat much in the morning. Firstly you can prepare the pudding very quickly and secondly you supply your body directly with important nutrients. Superfood – Why? Chia seeds are not called “superfood” without reason because…
