This is the story of an encounter… between two passionate girls. Passionate about yoga, cooking, and traveling… Such a meeting could only happen in Bali, an island of discovery, exchange and surprises! As a matter of fact, none of us could have imagined that such a creative and joyful collaboration would be born one year and a half later…
Time has come to talk about cooking that heals... The one that really nourishes your body and cheers you up. This question is more and more on my mind when I am thinking about my evening meals. No matter how much I love salads, they just can't satisfy me in these fall fresh evenings anymore.
I can’t let the summer pass away without offering you a taktouka recipe. For those who don’t know it yet, taktouka is a cooked salad made of tomatoes and roasted peppers. It is one of the classics of Moroccan cuisine. Our gastronomy includes several delicious cooked salads with various vegetables like zucchinis or eggplants (zaâlouk). Taktouka often looks like a zesty puree of tomatoes with green pepper slices. It can be served lukewarm or cold.
Today, I am sharing with you my favorite comfort food recipe. The kind of recipe that warms you up on cold and foggy days, and gives you strength when you feel weakened. Of course, it is a family recipe…
I heart artichokes. Don’t you? It is a family thing, I guess. In my family, we eat them in so many different ways. This may sound surprising, but we even eat them raw, in salads. And this is absolutely delicious. If you are like me, fond of this amazing vegetable, this recipe is for you!
Following effort, everyone wants a moment of comfort… The recipe I am suggesting today is one of these healthy and nourishing ones – like stewed beans, lentils, etc. – we enjoy after a busy day or intensive work. This kind of meals, especially when they involve simple preparation and ingredients, I feel like I never know enough of them...
Sometimes television can be a source of inspiration. Yes, really… A few days ago, an advertising campaign for « ugly fruits and vegetables » was launched on the French TV by a famous wholesaler, on the occasion of the national day against food waste. Ungraded and unsorted vegetables were under the spotlight.
Before I started cooking and preparing couscous by myself, whenever I heard about it, I was imagining a meal requiring several hours of preparation, a lot of organization and not being afraid to burn oneself when grasping the warm semolina…
Late summer is my favorite season for fruits. Grapes in particular are almost as sweet as honey at the moment. However I have not followed yet the grape cure / monodiet that naturopaths recommend for cleansing and detoxifying the body… This is probably the fault of the last figs (they are simply irresistible – I will dedicate them a post very soon) that I cannot resign myself to leave aside... But summer end is also the season for a very special fruit, the quince, that most people know only because of the jams or pâtes de fruits.
