Sweet & Sour with Jasmine Rice

Bonjour! 

Who does not know the classic “sweet and sour” dish from the Asian restaurant just around the corner??! I am convinced that everyone loves it… I know I definitely do 100%. The interesting thing is that no matter where you go in the world, where you travel and what cities you visit there is always sweet and sour to be found. However, sweet and sour varies very dramatically in color and consistency depending on where you are! I had once a PINK very watery sauce… Now I am not sure I should be telling you this ahaha. Anyways the one I am used to is orangy-brown in color and is a thick and juicy sauce. It just happens to be my father’s recipe!

Cauliflower Tacos

Bonjour! 

How do tacos sound for dinner? Good? I love love love fajitas, enchiladas and tacos

A lot of people have started talking about using cauliflower as carb substitute for their low-carb lifestyle. What have they been disguising it as? Simple, cauliflower can pretty much take the role of anything you can think of, just to name a few examples… here it goes: breadsticks, buns, pizza crust, quiche, couscous, rice, tortilla, bagels, hash browns, nachos and many more!

Isn’t it amazing?

Banana Bread

Bonjour! 

As I am in the middle of revision week for my midterm exams I do not have a lot of time to prepare my breakfast. One of my favorite go to recipes, when I have some overripe bananas is banana bread. 

It is one of the first things I learned to bake when I was a little girl. I remember my brother hearing about banana bread and his wish to try it. As it is not very common to have or make banana bread in Switzerland we did not have a recipe already in the house. 

I researched, came up with a recipe and it has not been changed ever since! It’s so good!

Eggplant + Tahini

eggplant

Bonjour! 

Something I have come to appreciate and like a lot lately is Tahini. It is super fast to make and pretty amazing. 

Made from sesame seeds and some olive oil Tahini is a nut butter originated from the Middle Eastern and Eastern cuisine. 

Tahini is not only delicious it can also benfit your body quite a bit. Having a lot of calcium and protein it is a great addition for people who do not or hardly eat meat. Furthermore, there are enough fatty healthy acids (Omega 3 and 6) present to make Tahini one of your go to products pretty fast! Continue Reading

Coconut Fishsoup

Bonjour! 

If I could choose I would probably eat almost daily asian inspired food. I love curry, coconut, sticky rice and all the other delicious aromas and igredients asian cuisines use. 

This coconut fishsoup is a recipe that my family has been doing for quite some years now. And let me tell you it is DELICIOUS! It is so simple to make but a wonderful experience while eating. Aromas of lemon grass, ginger and curcuma will fill your kitchen. 

The important thing to realise is that when cooking asian, not everybody’s tastebuds are the same. Continue Reading

Bonjour!

I am a granola girl! I believe that every person has that one kind of breakfast that never becomes boring. Some can eat daily scrambled egg while others enjoy a slice of bred with jam. For me that would be granola! I LOVE granola in all its varieties and combinations.
