8 Ingredients Pancakes – A Simple, Quick & Mouth-watering Breakfast

I am a breakfast person. And as far as I know, I do not believe there is something trendier than pancakes for breakfast. Even though some other breakfast ideas do attract the spotlights, such as chia puddings, healthy granolas or smoothies, I’ve never seen so many pancakes on my Instagram feed or on the Internet. And the reason is we, food bloggers, are creating healthy versions of them, which do attract people’s attention more and more every day. I’ve been asked multiple times to share a pancake recipe on the blog, and I guess those people’s dreams have come true! (For a non-vegan recipe, you can click here !) There is nothing else you would want to wake up to; there is nothing else you would want to pour maple syrup on; there is nothing else you could sacrifice your sanity for. Well, let’s be honest, if you have got someone to prepare them for you, that’s even better. Waking up to those beauties is like discovering a hundred banknote in the side pocket of …

Ras-el Hanout Carrot Soup with Crushed Pistachios & Coconut Milk

Ras-el Hanout is a North African spice blend that is traditionally made out of the merchant’s best spices. It is usually added to savoury dishes, meat or fish, stirred into couscous or rice, but I believe it to be delicious with all the things, especially soups and winter or spring vegetables. There is no definitive composition of spices that makes up ras-el-hanout, but it actually is up to every family, shop and merchant to choose from all their spices; however, if you’d fancy a little precision and do not like the unknown, here are the fourteen usual spices it consists of: cardamom, cumin, clove, cinnamon, coriander seed, ginger, allspice, chill peppers, nutmeg, mace, peppercorn, paprika, fenugreek and turmeric. It’s a red-gold powder, which actually is quite sweet but can really be sprinkled on top of everything. If you do not know what to do with a few rotting vegetables, a pumpkin or even some Kale

Sweet Potato Falafels & Roasted Peppers Quinoa Buddha Bowl

Falafels need to be reinvented, redefined, and remodelled. Even though you may find a few places where they are preparing them in a healthy way, this once healthy food has now become synonym of that greasy junky food people eat because they feel less guilty than eating a burger. Usually eaten in a wrap, I am today offering you another way to enjoy those little balls of happiness: a Buddha Bowl. There is not real definition of what a Buddha Bowl is. What you’ve got to know is that a Buddha Bowl basically is a bowl which you throw a whole lot of goodness in, drizzle some sauce on top and parachute a few seeds or sprouts. Here you are. I am not trying to be bold by saying I’ll revolution them. But I am almost certain you’ll find something delectable in those. This amazing recipe transforms the sweet potato in a crispy yet mushy treat, which is not deep fried in very questionable oil but simply baked. It keeps the fat content quite low …

The 2016 Christmas Gift: A Cranberry, Apple & Ginger Chutney

As there’s only one day left to wait before Christmas (or two…I always get mixed up anyway! It depends on when you’re celebrating it I believe haha!), I guess we’ve all put out hats, smiles and Christmas decorations (What !?) on, ready to swing and have fun with family and friends. You might be already well prepared, all your gifts done, your eyebrows waxed, whatever clothes you’re going to wear ready for you on a chair…well guess what? I am not at all! My eyebrows are waxed indeed but my gifts are far from done, my clothes are far from chosen and I can hardly think about all the things I have to do before tomorrow at midnight. As I am writing this article to you, I am actually putting my yoga gears on to leave and teach a yoga class, writing a shopping list for tomorrow’s Christmas gifts and eating the avocado on toast I forgot downstairs (forgetting my own food…that must be the Christmas spirit!). If you can picture yourself in the exact …

Best Sweet-Treat of Them All: Date Caramel Shortbread Squares

It might be because my home has been surrounded for fog for the past week, or that the temperature seems to be lowering down a little more every day, but I do not really feel like cooking savoury meals these days. The sole thing I am looking forward to whenever coming back home is curling up in my sofa, with a warm tea and something to satisfy my sweet tooth (a huge piece of something though!). Thus, my fridge and cupboards are filled with sweet treats and desserts, which I have the pleasure to enjoy by myself since my parents are not really into those… It’s been a week since being back from my short but amazing weekend in London, and apart from the serenity and peace I cultivated away from my home and routine, I brought back some amazing sweets in my luggage. Livia’s Kitchen’s shortbread millionaire bites are simple, natural and delicious snacks that you can bring with you wherever you go and enjoy at any time of the day (that because they …

Cardamom & Blueberry Breakfast Muffins

This is it. We’ve now entered the most fabulous time of the year, the most delicious month of all months, the most beautiful season of all – Christmas is on its way! If you’ve been following me on my social accounts, you might have seen that I’ve been away for the weekend, to shop, enjoy some “mum & I” time and even more importantly see the Christmas lights in London! As my work as a blogger follows me kind of everywhere I go, I started writing this article on the plane. Guess what? I fell asleep in the middle of it. When I woke up, and went through what I thought would be a great piece of art, I realized that what I had written did not mean anything at all…I therefore put it aside for a while before trying again; and here I am, cuddled up in a blanket, a hot cacao on my side, a cat on my lap, writing those fine lines to you. Just know that writing an article is not …
