Tomato soup

soupe tomate

It’s not just because of the weather. These toxic presidential elections are to blame, too. I am anxious, angry, frustrated, desperate, and it is not constructive. So I keep doing what I do best (except sleeping and breathing): cooking. Rhubarb crumbles, the ultimate spring comfort food. Soups, because it’s always my favorite at the end of the day (literally).

Simple, sugar-free cookies

Hello everyone! Today’s recipe is very simple, yet effective. These sugar-free cookies are packed with goodness, and contain only 2 ingredients: banana and rolled oats (or any rolled grain you fancy).

Minus the ecological disaster.

Preserved lemons

Hello everyone ! So far, we have made kimchi, fermented beets and oat yoghurt. Let us now preserve some lemons. Lacto-fermented or preserved lemons are the same thing. Like all fermentations using lactic bacteria, the process takes some time. Be patient but, I promise, it’s very easy. I have hardly altered the recipes I found on the internet, only to simplify […]
