This beetroot broccoli juice is not only colourful and delicious, but also very healthy. It made entirely of vegetables, since I try to keep my fruit juice intake at a minimum. I used to love pink berry juices (still do), but their sugar content is quite often much higher than those of veggie juices so I decided to make a compromise: pink juice, but a healthier option
When I spotted this Beetroot vegetable pie (plaattaart) in the Allerhande, I knew that this had to be next vegetarian dish. It looked so delicious and simple that I had to try it and oh I am so happy I did. For my readers that do not live in the Netherlands; Allerhande is a monthly magazine from the Albert Heijn (one of the largest supermarkt chains here). I use it as one of my many inspiration sources. This recipe is filled with fresh vegetables (which I all bought on the market), it is very simple and the ingredients used can be easily substituted if you wish, which is something that I did.
I had the best foodie weekend ever. Friday I made this delicious prawn risotto with one of my good friends, scroll down for the recipe. On Saturday, after a trip to the market, I had a super tasty roasted chicken stuffed with lemon and thyme (unfortunately I did not write the recipe down of this one).
It has been a while since I went down to the market, I forgot how much I enjoyed it. So much to choose from, really fresh products and great place to shop on a budget. So get ready for some tasty recipes with really fresh products in the upcoming weeks.
Christmas has officially begun. According to the songs the most wonderful time of the year. I, as a foodlover, cannot entirely disagree with this statement. I love Christmas dinners where the entire family and loved ones are sitting around the table eating food that someone spent hours preparing, drinking wine that you normally wouldn’t buy, and watch movies that are only allowed to be watched around this time of year.
What happens if the internet decides to stop working on Monday night? Taking Netflix down with it and the television decides to join? Yes! It means that it is time to finally try-out my pasta machine. Well I thought it was. I first had to make an attempt to read an Italian instruction manual on how to put the individual pieces together. After 15 minutes I figured it out and all that stood between me and my plate of home-made pasta was the creation of the dough.
