Vegetarian Tasty Salad! MMM,…!

Yesterday, I invented this glorious winning tasty vegetarian salad. It is made within 15 minutes! Can you guess the yummy ingredients?

Will you join me?

Will you join me?

Yes, you are right: There is grilled halloumi in it, toasted hazelnuts, a sweet dressing & a tasty combo of green small lettuce & Belgian ground witloof. It is just the perfect combination of fine foods. You have sweet & salty in here too. Let’s see how I made it, shall we?

Recipe: For 2 persons

Ingredients:

For the persimmon dressing:

2 ripe persimmons, peeled, big white stem on the inside removed

5 grins of finely milled black pepper

5 grins of milled pink salt

1 tablespoon of a fruity extra virgin olive oil

For the salad:

2 cups, well-pushed into the cups, (60 gr) cleaned, washed, spun dry lamb’s lettuce

1/2 cup (77 gr) whole unskinned hazelnuts

2 large Belgian witloof (chicory) cultivated into the full ground, cleaned, cut up into smaller pieces, as you like/ Just cut them up fine just before serving other wise they change color into more grey.

1 packet of halloumi = 225 gr, package opened, water poured away, dipped on kitchen paper, cut up into thinner slices with a sharp knife.

Method:

  1. First, take a non-stick fitted pan & add hazelnuts. Toast on low-fire until they are all browned & toasted. Shake the nuts in the pan & check them often, not to burn them. Your house will smell amazing when ready. this only takes a few minutes. turn heat off & set aside.
  2. Make the dressing. Place peeled persimmons into a beaker. Add black pepper, pink salt & olive oil. With an immersion blender blend until completely smooth. Taste. The dressing is sweet but also has a yummy savory flavor. It is just perfect! Now, heat a large non-stick griddle pan on high-heat. Brush your halloumi slices on both sides with the oil. When the griddle pan is very hot, place the halloumi slices onto it for a few minutes, pushing with a fork to get the lovely browned grilled lines onto the slices. When you see them, turn around & fry the other sides too, for a few minutes. Now, you are ready to plate up. Place a lot of the lamb’s lettuce leaves on the full base of your plates. In the middle, add the chopped witloof. Arrange 4 halloumi slices on top of the witloof. Scatter the hazelnuts all around the out circle of the plates, like picture above. Finally, dollop the dressing into the middle of the plates & on the sides outwards too, like picture above. Serve at once with a loved one & eat with a big smile on your face! :) MMM,…Stay Tuned! If you liked this post & want more of them, join 1,421 email followers! Subscribe by email! It is free!

Pumpkin Pimped Breakfast, reblog with video!

Hey sweeties!

I reblog my lovely recipe of Pumpkin Pimped Breakfast here because I just made a photo video out to it! It was also fun & something new to do too. It is also shared on Facebook & on youtube!  Subscribe to my You tube channel HERE!!! Check it all out here:

And here is the full written recipe again, but you can follow it easily on the video itself!

This morning, I made this lovely Pumpkin Pimped Breakfast! I had some leftover fresh home-made pumpkin purée left that I needed to use up. It was just 1/4 cup. So, I made this yummy breakfast & used only 4 ingredients to make it! It is also VEGAN & GLUTEN-FREE! yes! Not to mention, very delicious! :) 

Recipe: For 1 person

Ingredients:

1 cup (274 gr) bit sweetened soy yoghurt

1/4 cup (61 gr) home-made pumpkin purée

1/8 cup (22 gr) vegan chocolate mini chips (min. 50%)

1 tablespoon chia seeds

Method:

Spoon your yoghurt into a lovely bowl. Add chia seeds & stir everything round through the yoghurt. Leave for 10 minutes. The chia seeds will soak up a bit of the yoghurt & will get a bit bigger. Add chocolate chips on top of the yoghurt-chia seed mix, evenly scattered. Finally, add all the pumpkin purée on top of the chocolate chips & with help of a spoon, spoon it through the top of the yoghurt mix. Enjoy with a big smile on your face! Yum!  :) Stay Tuned! If you liked this post & want more of them, join 1,416 email followers! Subscribe by email! It is free!

Winter gardening update!

Yesterday, I biked to our allotment. I needed to cut away many black kale leaves for our vegan kale pasta dinner that we were going to eat. I will give you a winter update.

We have pulled up a lot of Jerusalem artichokes. One plant out of the 6, already gave us + 4 kg! Ooh yes. We dug up another plant, it also gave us + 4 kg! The rest of them is still in the ground. I know that we are going to leave a few of them for getting new plants later in the year. You know that we have made a plastic barrière for them before planting.

Home-made pumpkin puree & a recipe using it!

Hello everyone,

You all know that we grew 3 different types of pumpkins last year, yes? We grew 3 big Musque de Provence pumpkins (Cucurbita Moschata) & the tiniest one, was 5,2 kg! One of the bigger one’s we cut up open yesterday. This one was: 7,8 kg! That is right! We picked it from the plant on October the 10th before the frost so it was exactly, just over 3 months old! This is how it looked now:

It is a big one!

It is a big one!

Mom’s famous chocolate mousse + video!

This recipe is from  my mother. She has had a lot of success with it, for more than 25 years! Whenever there was a dinner party @ my parent’s house, there was the famous chocolate mousse! ;) Ooh yes! MMM!

airy mousse

I love this recipe because, it is utterly delicious, you can prepare it beforehand & it is so easy to make too. I am lactose-intelorant & there is NO CREAM in it! It is a little bit lighter, but has a lot of flavour! The sweetness is just right, it melts into the mouth! It doesn’t have EGG YOLKS either, that can make the mousse a bit heavier. You can serve this with some seasonal fruit on top, if you want, but the dessert itself doesn’t need it. :)

Amber said: ” Oh my gosh YESSSSS! This is the dessert I have been missing. The fact that it’s dairy free and looks just as yummy as a cream-based dessert is just so amazing!!! Please make this for me.  :)

These are a few of my favorite things!

These are a few of my favorite things at the moment!

My favorite tea at the moment!

Shotimaa: Green tea, orange & cinnamon: Loving

This is a lovely green tea with herbs, spices & with plant extracts. The ingredients are: green tea bancha (65%), anise (5%), barley malt, bergamot orange extract, elderflower, cardamom, linden flowers, ginger, cinnamon extract, black pepper, cloves. More than 3/4 of the ingredients are organic.

I love this tea because it resembles Fall in all the way. It has good green tea in it but the tea is not bitter when it is steeped for 4 minutes in my favorite mug! It is like a soothing comforting healthy tea. I love the flavors so much. I think that you will too. I buy mine in my organic food store: bio-planet. One package with 16 tea bags costed me: 2.99 Euro.

Black rice veggie stew served with organic chicken pieces!

Vegan 5 ingredient pancakes!

This morning, I invented these 5 ingredient vegan pancakes,…and healthy too,… ooh yes! Check them out! :)

Vegan 5 ingredient pancakes!

Vegan 5 ingredient pancakes!

These smaller fluffy pancakes are very delicious on their own or drizzled with some good maple syrup! Eat them still warm, so your chocolate chips will melt! :) Yummy!

Drizzled with some good maple syrup!

Drizzled with some good maple syrup!

The batter is made in minutes. And then you fry them. It is that easy! Do you know, how I made them?

And now the video here, just new for you all:

Recipe: For 10 smaller pancakes

Ingredients:

1 cup ( 90 gr) stone-ground oat flour

1 cup (240 ml) unsweetened almond milk

1/2 cup (94 gr) vegan dark mini chocolate chips

1 ripe peeled banana, mashed with a fork

1 teaspoon baking powder

To fry in: a fruity extra virgin olive oil

Method:

  1. Take a large bowl & ad oat flour, baking powder, mashed banana & chocolate chips. Mix well with a spoon.
  2. Now, add almond milk & mix everything together. Wait for about 5 minutes & your batter will be thicker.
  3. Take a fitted small non-stick pan & heat up on medium-high. Drizzle a bit of that fruity oil in it. Take a small soup ladle & pur your batter in it. This will make the size of your pancakes. Pour the batter into the middle of the pan & swirl it a bit around the pan. Fry for about 2-3 minutes or until the sides are all browned & take a fork to loosen the sides of the pancake. Then, with help of a pancake flipper, flip your pancake & fry the this side for 1 minute or 2. Place the ready pancakes on top of each other onto a plate & place a large upside down plate over them to keep warm. This recipe makes 10 smaller pancakes. Serve warm just like that or drizzle with some good maple syrup! Yummmmm! :) Stay Tuned! If you liked this post & want more of themjoin 1,358 email followers! Subscribe by email! It is free!
