Easy peasy recipe: a red smoothie.

Christmas is here, which means parties with family, decorations, lights, presents and loadtrucks full of food. I personally overeat quite a bit during the Holiday season, so here's a lighter snack that still has a Christmas-appropriate colour!

Easy Peasy Recipe: a green smoothie.

As you can see by the number of times I've posted anything on this blog lately, I've been very busy. Nonetheless I'm trying to maintain a healthy lifestyle. Most recently I ventured into the world of green smoothies. As I understand it, those are smoothies with vegetables in them. Preferably a lot of vegetables and not too much fruit as to avoid too much sugar. So after blending a banana and an avocado that I still had laying around as an enthusiastic first attempt, I went to the shop to buy a few ingredients that I thought would work well together.

Easy peasy recipe: the best porridge I've ever had.

One day I was hungry and decided to make some porridge. I added some extras to make it more interesting and less carb-heavy. Now it's my new favourite breakfast! Here's the recipe!

Easy peasy recipe: buckwheat crepes.

It's been a long time since I posted an easy peasy recipe as I've been eating the same foods quite a lot, and dinner is usually either not inspirational at all or not easy enough to qualify for an easy peasy recipe. But lately I've been making dairy-free buckwheat crepes every now and then, so it's high time to share that recipe! As buckwheat contains no gluten, these crepes are also gluten-free.

Easy Peasy Recipe: Courgette chips.

So I saw a recipe for courgette chips floating about somewhere on the internet. It involved herbs and parmesean. As I had a courgette that needed to be eaten in the fridge, I did an improvised variation.

Easy Peasy Recipe: Raw Italian sweet pepper.

Does anyone like raw peppers? I never thought I'd voluntarily eat that, but when I tried raw Italian sweet pepper, I was pleasantly surprised! Then I tried adding some extras to it, and I've been making this for lunch a few times lately.

It's so simple, I'm not even sure it's worthy of the name 'recipe'.

Easy Peasy Recipe: coco(a)-nut granola.

Last week I stumbled upon an amazing recipe of grain free granola. A few days later I managed to make a batch and absolutely loved it. It tasted great and kept me full throughout a busy morning.
As I was working with the ingredients I had, mine is slightly different than the original recipe, but it is definitely my new favourite breakfast!

Easy Peasy Recipe: pesto.

I've been wanting to try and make pesto instead of buying a jar for a while. So when M. mentioned making pesto of his own whilst we were jogging, I figured I should definitely give it a try. Since I already had fresh basil from making spinach lasagne, I just got the other ingredients and gave it a go.

Easy Peasy Recipe: avocado mash up.

I've been having avocado a few times lately. Then my sister gave me a tip to make it a bit more substantial. Whilst it isn't the most attractive looking, it makes for a good lunch!

Easy Peasy Recipe: Italian sweet pepper and goats' cheese.

I'm still loving goats' cheese, so here's another recipe using it! I first tried this recipe with two friends of mine. We were cooking together and had this as a starter.
It was so delicious I've had it several more times since!

Easy Peasy Recipe: "classic" goats' cheese omelette.

I'm very much into eating goats' cheese lately. It started out after I'd seen a certain episode of Corner Gas in which Lacey names her goats' cheese omelette 'classic goats' cheese omelette' in order to make her friends eat it. So I tried making one of my own and absolutely loved it!
I make mine as follows:

Easy Peasy Recipe: mushroom and garlic quinoa.

Here's another easy peasy recipe!  This one is even easier than the first one. It's definitely no haute cuisine, but it's nice if you want an easy lunch.
It's a quinoa dish and I promise it tastes better than it looks!

For one person you'll need:
about 4 tablespoons of quinoa,
some water (that's not very precise, I know, but I didn't measure it; I'd guess it was about 400 ml),
1 clove of garlic,
5 medium sized mushrooms,
A piece of vegetable stock cube to taste.

Put the quinoa and water in a pot and put it on the stove top on high heat. Then peel and the garlic, mash it with a garlic press and add that in too. Next, cut the mushrooms and add those along with the bit of vegetable stock cube.

All you need to do then is let it boil and stir every now and then. After about 25 minutes most of the water was gone and I poured it on a plate. Easy as that!

Easy Peasy Recipe: spinach lasagne.

I am most definitely no chef but I have learnt to cook for myself in the past three years or so. This is a recipe of a dish I had at a friend's house 2 years ago. I found the recipe again, but it didn't work out quite well. After a few more goes at the dish, I've managed to adjust it ever so slightly to fit my and my families taste.
