Belgian endives are the star of this simple yet divine dish. They are delicate in texture and pleasantly bitter with sweet and nutty undertones. They can be enjoyed raw where they taste crisp and slightly bitter. They are also delicious cooked, either boiled, braised or baked, where their sharp flavour softens into a mellow, nutty sweetness. No rinsing or washing necessary as it will make it more bitter tasting. Just pull off and discard outer leaves or use a damp cloth to wipe the outer leaves and trim the base.
Tomato passata is an uncooked tomato puree made with very ripe red tomatoes that have been strained from seeds and skins. They are usually sold in glass jars or bottles. Sometimes it comes with basil but nothing more. If you can't find it, just use marinara / pasta sauce instead.

Keto Smashed Cucumbers With Whipped Tahini

By ‘smacking’ the cucumbers in this refreshing side dish you create more rough surfaces to better soak up the spicy sauce. It makes a great accompaniment to grilled chicken or skewered steak. Feel free to use more chilli sauce if you want it really spicy or less chilli oil if you prefer it milder. Whipped tahini is creamy, nutty, richly satiating and comes together in a snap using a stick blender.

Persimmon, Mandarin and Burrata Salad

Monday, January 23, 2023

The delicate, sweet persimmon and juicy, tangy mandarins with creamy burrata, pomegranate seeds and fresh mint. All drizzled with olive oil then sprinkled with a generous amount of sumac, cracked PGI Kampot pepper and smoked salt. Wonderful colours and textures combined to create this zestful, flavourful and lively winter salad.
PGI (Protected Geographical Indication) Kampot (a city in southern Cambodia) pepper with a beautiful red colour offers sweet notes of citrus fruit, berries, dates, and honey. The hot taste also has slight flavours of eucalyptus and mint. Freshly ground or crushed, it perfumes your salads, baked goods and roasted vegetables. Kampot peppercorns are considered the finest pepper in the world. They’re named after their region of production.
Sumac, or sumach, comes from the Arabic “summaq,” which means “dark red.” It's made from the berry fruit of the Rhus Coriaria shrub and adds a citrusy tangy lemony flavour to salads and meats. It's tart and sharp, but also contains a hint of sweetness, along with lingering floral notes.

Bitter endives, distinctly citrusy kumquats, sweet and sour pomegranate and briny Feta form the basis of this salad full of intense flavours. A fabulous salad or light lunch. Besides Feta, the endives pairs really well with blue cheese too.
The bitter substances in Belgian endives stimulate the production of bile in the liver and digestion, especially of fats. They also prevent cravings by curbing the appetite.

Garam Masala Mashed Pumpkin with Harissa Black Lentils

Saturday, January 14, 2023

The earthy harissa-flavoured beluga lentils go so perfectly with the rich and creamy mashed pumpkin, which makes a nourishing and delicious meal to have on a cold winter day!
I prefer to make my own pumpkin puree by roasting them in oven until very soft, then simply process them into a puree. But you can use canned variety too. Black lentils are also known as beluga lentils since they resemble beluga caviar, the most prized of all caviar varieties. They hold their shape exceptionally well when cooked, very much like French lentils (aka Le Puy lentils). Feel free to use other types of lentils instead if you can't find them.

Buckwheat Salad with Chestnut Dressing

Thursday, January 12, 2023

Buckwheat are the seeds of a flowering plant related to rhubarb. Contrary to the name, they are not related to wheat. Buckwheat groats are naturally gluten-free and has a low GI. They have wonderfully earthy and nutty flavour, nutritious and incredibly satisfying. You want to slightly undercook them because buckwheat tends to become mushy when overcooked. Substitute the buckwheat with millet or couscous for the recipe if desired.

With distinctively nutty mâche, delightfully sharp and bitter radicchio, sweet mandarin, rich smoked sockeye salmon and creamy, herby lemon dressing, this keto-friendly, gluten-free salad is chock-full of fresh flavours, crunchy and juicy textures, and essential nutrients. I have also added some leftover trout caviar to the salad, but it's completely optional. Instead of mâche, you can also use arugula, baby beet greens, spinach or simply a mesclun mix.

Looking for easy, healthy, delicious, keto-friendly and gluten free snack or lunch ideas? These breadless cucumber sandwiches have got you covered. I have cut the cucumber horizontally, but you can simply slice it into rounds. Due to the high water content, cucumbers are a real slimming treat. 100 grams of cucumber provide just 12 kilocalories. In addition, cucumbers contain the potassium, iron, zinc and fluorine and some vitamin C. And with the fresh, creamy Chavroux goat cheese, there is also satiating protein between the slices. If you don't like olives, sundried tomatoes would be a great alternative.

Lupin (aka lupine or lupini) are a legume enjoyed in the Mediterranean region and they’re also very well known in Middle Eastern countries like Jordan and Egypt. They are high in protein, fibre, potassium, magnesium and many other minerals and vitamins. Around the same size as fava beans, these yellow legumes have a sweet, nutty flavor and firm, hearty texture. They are a nutritional powerhouse with nearly double the amount of protein that's in chickpeas.
Discover the delights of lupin beans in this colourful, nourishing salad. High in protein, lupin beans and boiled eggs together, make this meal deliciously healthy and filling. You can add or substitute other beans or legumes such as white beans, chickpeas, and French lentils, but keep the boiled eggs for nutritional balance.
