Maple Balsamic Brussels Sprouts with Cranberries and Pepitas

Brussels Sprouts with Balsamic Glaze

Think you hate Brussels sprouts? You are hardly alone. To be honest, it never really occurred to me to prepare Brussels sprouts. Even my love for broccoli and cauliflower is fairly recent, but Brussels sprouts hadn’t been on my agenda until I tried them at my grandparents-in-law’s house. I was so blown away by howRead more

5-minute Vegan Gluten Free Naan Bread

The free bread basket you get in restaurants to quench your hunger – I know, sometimes it isn’t even free – is usually just that – a hunger quencher.

Gluten Free Crusty Rosemary and Walnut Bread (vegan, wholegrain)

Unlike gluten free biscuits, which – albeit unhealthy- are widely available and reasonably tasty, a delicious gluten free bread is something you will not find in any supermarket, well-stocked as it may be.Read more

Watermelon Vinaigrette (paleo, low fat, sugar free, dairy free, gluten free, vegan)

Yes, the title is correct – this is a vinaigrette with watermelon in it! And it works just beautifully! If you don’t believe that a watermelon vinaigrette works, you better see for yourself, as this is whipped up in a matter of minutes, with just a handful of ingredients! I have tried it on GreekRead more
