Ever since my failed attempt at making falafels 2 years ago I had this fear of making them. Finally I made some and I’m really happy with the outcome and the secret is to use dried chickpeas. It seems like a lot of work but if you plan ahead, it’s quite easy!
We love to eat vegan chocolate at home for dessert but most of the time it’s very high in refined sugar. So I made some yummy vegan chocolate balls sweetened by medjool dates. This is very quick to make and you don’t need an oven, just a mixer or a blender!
Risotto has been my go to meal when I don’t have so much time in the kitchen. It’s so quick to make and at the same time having risotto feels like you’re ordering from a nice restaurant.

Lately I have been obsessed with warm oats and I’ve been having them for breakfast everyday I think for the last 2 months. You can use any fruit in season as toppings, it’s so delicious and healthy packed with fiber and vitamins.
I love Mexican food and it’s one of those cuisines that can be easily veganized. Whenever I cook for friends this is my go to recipe. It’s colorful, delicious and letting my friends mix all together to create their own burrito is a great bonding experience too!

Couscous looks like rice but it’s actually pasta made of semolina wheat. You can create different kinds of dishes with it and I made a quick and easy veggie version with my couscous.
I’m so happy that I found pre made Falafels at our local grocery store. You can also make it from scratch (will try to make one soon) but if you can find it at your supermarket then you can make a falafel bowl like I did! It was so unbelievably delicious and was very easyContinue reading “Happy Falafel Bowl”
Pomodoro sauce is quite easy to make so I added some kale, mushrooms and artichoke hearts to make it more interesting and flavorful. It sounds intimidating with all the other ingredients but trust me it’s so quick to make!
