Berlin is experiencing a beautiful summer right now – sunsets at 10 pm, hot days and warm nights, green trees and flowers everywhere, blue skies and lots of sunshine. This is rare here, so it’s important to enjoy every minute. Of course icecream is a big part of that, and it’s nice to always have some in the freezer. The easiest way to get there is to make popsicles. [Read more…] about Coconut ginger icecream pops
This recipe was born out of a need to use up a bag of puffed quinoa. It turned out to be a really delicious, sweet, creamy and crunchy snack, which takes minimal effort. We just finished this batch and I already feel like making more. [Read more…] about Puffed quinoa- cocoa butter bars
Continuing with the ancient but delicious cereals, here’s a millet apple porridge that makes a wonderful healthy and warming breakfast, much needed during the endless grey Berlin winter. Millet is a staple in many parts of the world, and not surprisingly, since contains lots of fiber, minerals and antioxidants. And it’s gluten free. I combined the cooked millet here with grated apple reminiscent of a Bircher muesli and topped it off with toasted pecans, coconut flakes and activated buckwheat.

These tacos contain a wild mix of toppings, but for me they all work together. I love the miso-tahini-lemon sauce, especially together with sweet potatoes (a nice combination also on its own, without tacos!) and the green asparagus provides some nice crunch.

I keep seeing beautiful turnips at the market and I love their purple color. Turnips don’t have a great reputation, but their flavor is actually delicious, like a cross between kohlrabi and radishes. They can be eaten raw or cooked, and they make great fries too. And they are available throughout the winter. In my search for recipes to use them I came across this turnip burger on Food 52, which sounded delicious. I also took veggie burger inspiration from Nourish Atelier, a beautiful blog (and now cookbook!), which has several amazing burger recipes. The result was the most delicious veggie burger we ever had. Hope you enjoy it too!
