This my version of the good & tasty salsa verde. It means a green sauce. Salsa verde is a great sauce to make. You eat it cold. You can easily make it in your beloved food processor.
I served my salsa verde with pan-fried haddock pieces & oven baked potatoes. It is great to use as a simple cold sauce in pasta. You could also stir it through mashed potatoes.
It is great to use a big dollop on jacked potatoes. It is great in a salad too. You could also use it on top of grilled pork: a divine combination!
Now, my recipe, it is easy peasy!

This morning, I made this delicious Vegan & Gluten-free Lemony Hemp protein smoothy! I added a few other healthy things & drank 1 big smoothy as a nice drinkable healthy breakfast! You see?
What is Hemp protein, I hear you say?
Raw 100% organic hemp protein powder is a raw powder from hemp seeds. After the raw hemp seeds are cold pressed & gently milled, the resulting fine green powder can be easily added into your daily breakfasts, smoothies etc.
Hemp seeds are very healthy & an excellent source of minerals, fatty acids & proteins. It is also a healthy source of dietary fiber, chlorophyll, and minerals including magnesium, iron, zinc and potassium. This finely milled powder has a rich, nutty flavor that is ideal for smoothies, baked goods or any recipe that could use a protein and fiber boost.
This morning, I wanted to make a lovely breakfast tofu scramble! I had to use up a few veggies from my fridge! That’s why I call this a Fridge tofu scramble! I added a few spices from my pantry & to keep it vegan & gluten-free, I added a bit of nutritional yeast for a cheesy flavor! ;)
Don’t you want a full plate & join me?

Streek = Region. You know them by this labelling:
Here is their website only in Dutch though. http://www.streekproduct.be

You even can name it a glorious dessert because it is spoonable,…or drinkable,…Check it all out for yourself, right?
Today, I made these Festive Vegan Maple scones with pecans & cranberries! The scones itself are Vegan!! The maple’s butter is not! Maple butter is pure maple syrup with some added unsalted butter that is boiled, cooled & whipped into this tasty Canadian spread! Very rich but surely delicious! It is very sweet so it is good that my scones are not! ;) So use it for a long time in small portions!
I just looovvveeee these tasty scones! I used white spelt flour in them & vegan margarine! They are also topped with a maple glaze! You will love them too, even as a nice breakfast in these lovely cold days before Christmas,…or they are great eaten as a nice brunch on Christmas day,…;)

T’s the season to be jolly,…falalalalaaaa,..la,..la,..la,..laaa! :) I put on some great old Christmas songs of Frank Sinatra, Nat King Cole of Ella Fitzgerald,…In Belgium, we didn’t grew up with these cool old-fashioned great Christmas songs! :(
Every year, my husband Peter & I get a real cool Christmas tree & we decorate it with gold & red balls of glory! Last year, we got this new wooden crafted Christmas Stable,…Just look at it: pretty cool, hey?
This fantastic home-made Vegan Christmas stollen was all invented by me, myself & I aka 2 years ago, but because it is so delicious & amazing, you all must make it this Festive Christmas Season! Even, if you are not a vegan, you will love it! It is a more healthy recipe with a bit of a twist! ;) A little bit naughty but nice,… Like you all know me!
Normally, a Christmas stollen has dried glacé cherries, nuts, candied peel & dried fruit like sultanas in them. I don’t like a lot of these ingredients so I had to make & invent one, my way. Every Christmas, I have to make this for my hubby Peter & family members,…It is not a request, it is a necessity! I know that you all will love it too! :)
Normally, a Stollen is a fruit cake, more like a bread, containing dried fruit and often marzipan and covered with sugar or icing sugar. The cake is usually made with chopped candied fruit and/or dried fruit, nuts and spices. Stollen is a traditional German cake, usually eaten during the Christmas season. It is made with yeast, water and flour, and usually with zest added to the dough. Candied orange peel and candied citrus peel, raisins & almonds, and different spices such as cardamom & cinnamon are added. Other ingredients, such as milk, sugar, butter, salt, rum, eggs, vanilla, other dried fruits, nuts and marzipan can also be added to the Stollen dough. Except for the fruit added, the dough is quite low in sugar. :) The finished cake or bread is mostly sprinkled with icing sugar. The traditional weight of a Stollen is around 2 kg, but smaller sizes are now available. I didn’t add icing sugar on top! I did it this way:
Yesterday afternoon, I made this Warm
I received some fresh stalks of curly kale ( boerenkool in Dutch ) from our friends’ allotment. ;) This is a spiced up filling good-for-you soup filled with vegan gluten-free goodness! It is more a meal then a normal soup! I didn’t mix the soup! Enjoy! :) You will love it too!
This morning, I made my first invented pecan pie! I saw many unhealthy recipes on the internet & on other blogs so I tried to make it much healthier & I think I succeeded! The only not so healthy ingredient in here is vegan butter! ;) This is a pure sweeter indulgent of a fine dessert, something new in flavors for Peter & me! I didn’t make it too sweet. I don’t like my tarts to be too sweet. Instead of corn syrup I used maple syrup, grade C!
The next time, I will make it into a tartlet tin with loose bottom, much easier in getting the pie aka tart out of the pan!
Make this fantastic delicious vegan spelt pecan pie right now!
Hey all, this is my favorite vegan ” milk chocolate” with whole nuts! I first met this tasty chocolate 2 years ago, when traveling in Berlin, the vegan city! ;) I bought this lovely vegan chocolate aka ” milk” chocolate in the vegan supermarket called Veganz! I love all of their chocolate products! I know that you would like them too! But they are hard to find here in Belgium! I bought it @ Shavt!

Yesterday, I received some fresh Jerusalem artichokes, also named sunchokes, topinambours in French & aardperen in my language aka Dutch! Whatever you call them, these veggies are very under-estimated & under-used here in Belgium. When you buy them organic, they are very pricy!

Today, I made these lovely wonderful healthy ginger orange chia seed puddings! I made my favorite ginger tea & steeped the chia seeds in it for a while, to absorb the lovely ginger flavors. Then, I added some extra ground ginger to the chia seeds for an extra touch of ginger-flavour! I added some freely squeezed orange juice for the orange flavor. I added a bit of sweetness & placed them in the fridge to stiff up for a while. I topped my puddings with fresh orange parts dipped into vegan dark chocolate! Yum yum yumm!
You can eat this as a filling breakfast or as a yummy dessert! :) If it is a breakfast, make larger portions than these ones! :)

Delish! :) A very festive vegan & Gf salad! The more grilled bitter leaves go so well with the more sweeter pink grapefruit maple syrup dressing!
