I recently organized a dinner party for eight friends. I tried to include as many pulp dishes as possible. One of the items was this pulp veggie burger. Personally, I like a bite. My friends too - the burger was a succes. Pulp + wasabi + chili. Apparently it’s a good combination (no, it IS!).
Once I organized a high tea and baked an alternative brownie - with honey. It was a request for a friend to have some -refined-sugarless dishes. Well, what did I know. Honey?.... I didn't like it to much. I did make a photo for my blog, but the recipe never made it to the www. "If I eat (or make or post) a brownie, I want a classic brownie," I'd always say. Nothing beats the real thing.
No pulp? Use grated carrot or beetroot!
You just wanna cook all day, are granddaughter of a baker, try not to waste any food and juicing fanatically since the past month. Pretty inevitable that you start to experiment with juice pulp! Sounds like me ;).
To my opinion, not everything needs to be sugar free, gluten free.... "everything"-free. I guess I'm blessed with being able to eat everything. I believe that when you eat all the 'bad' stuff balanced (+ as clean/pure as possible + enjoy what ever you eat/drink)... the recipe to a stressfree happy foodie life! Anyhow, some people (more and more ) really need to be careful about what they eat.
I found this very nice recipe on the website Oh She Glows, that my friend Evelijn showed me. It has loads of (VERY YUMMIE!!!) vegan recipes. All the healthy stuff! These oat bars are fantastic. Like I said with the granola... "Will I ever buy granola in the store again?!" I could say the same about those oat bars. They're easily prepared, healthy, made from scratch - with the home made jam -, perfect for breakfast or a afternoon snack.
I'm a bit hooked on puddings.... Tried my first one years ago with a Christmas dinner. Completely ruined it (only the dessert ;)). Yes, I can say: I have improved!!! This buttermilk panna cotta worked out so nice. And so did this yoghurt pudding... If you want to surprise you guests, this dessert is absolute a must do!!! You can prepare everything, so it won't take much time during the dinner.
This is (so far) one of my favourite Ottolenghi dishes. I have to try many more recipes from his book 'Plenty' (Dutch version) - a fantastic b-day present from Lelle & Len-, but I keep making this one! No wonder. Everybody loves it. Same thing at my housewarming yesterday. Well guys, here is the recipe! More Ottolenghi recipes on the blog soon.
There we go again, another Yotam recipe :). I love this mix of pumpkin with red union! My dear friend Alex surprised me so much! He gave me this wonderful cookbook 'Jerusalem' a few months ago. Once a friend gave me a cookbook and said: "Sorry I'm giving you such an un-personal present." But it's actually (really?;) something that makes me incredibly happy. Especially 'An Ottolenghi'.
lemon curd, that you can use for this pie and more. You won't regret doing this...
