Vegetable chips: parsnip & carrots 

Who does’nt love chips (or fries)? Tasty, crunchy, soft potato fries with ketchup on the side. Yumm! Super delicious, but unfortunately not very healthy and most definately not part of my clean eating diet. (Not that I never eat chips, I love a side of chips when I order from my favourite burger place)

Of course you have air fryers that make them a healthier option OR you can take some of your favourite veggies, cut them into chips shaped pieces and ta-daa!: your homemade, healthy, vitamin packed and most importantly delicious chips that taste better than the ones you get at the chipper; I promise.

Beetroot broccoli juice

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

Stuffed paprikas with minced beef and feta cheese

What do you do when you might have overshopped a little at the market and you still have four paprikas in the fridge, which you really need to eat within now and two days? Yes, you make roasted, stuffed paprikas. It has been a while since I made them and I forgot how simple they were to make. They really do not take up a lot of your time, but you do get maximum flavour. If you of course use the right herbs, spices and fillings, but don’t worry I have a recipe here that you have to try if you are planning on making them.

More Veggies #4: Beetroot vegetable pie

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.

Hello making juice in five minutes! So get ready for some juicy recipes on Bits&Bitez.

More Veggies #2: Carrot burgers

I am entering week 4 now of my personal vegetarian challenge. For those of you who haven’t read it, I am cutting down my meat consumption by eating vegetarian at least once a week. In my first week I made a vegetarian, homemade pasta. You can read the recipe of it here. So far this personal challenge has triggered my creativity when it comes to making food. I am learning new things, new recipes and start to use products that I haven’t before. One of these products are chickpeas. I have them (unprocessed) stored away in a jar in my kitchen and last week, after talking to one of my colleagues, I finally knew what I wanted to make of them; my first veggie-burger. They are healthy, tasty, colourful.. Need I say more? Click that read more button to read the recipe.

More Veggies #1: Mushroom pasta

I love trying new things in life. Learning a new language, get a new hobby, travel to places I haven’t been yet and of course trying new foods. Growing up, we usually ate a lot of the same things for dinner; boiled potatoes, boiled vegetables and a piece a meat and in winter time the Dutch ‘stampots’. Of course those three things would vary every day and when my mom had less time to cook we would  occassionally eat pasta bolognese or lasagne. (I love lasagne) When I started living on my own I was delighted that I could choose every evening what I wanted to eat.
