Potato and Edamame Bean Soup

Potatoes are not just popular in Britain, but also in Europe, America, and 150 other countries. It is now an inevitable part of weekly shopping. Most people love it due to its ability to make any dish rich and creamy.

Banana and Dark Chocolate Pancake

Happy pancake day to all readers!!!

These outrageously awesome pancakes are the best I ever came across!! My pancake recipe is perfect for breakfast or as a workout snack.

Protein Rich Tofu & Skyr Dip

I am always in constant search for low fat and tasty dips. So last Friday, for family tv time munch, I began experimenting and ended up in the preparation of a healthy Tofu & Skyr dip. Honestly, my family absolutely loved this dip.

Healthy Beetroot Flapjacks

Beetroots are in season now and there is no harm in adding a root vegetable to your favourite snack. So here is my recipe for wholesome goodness. This flapjack is mildly sweet, chewy and crunchy at the same time. Nuttiness of the oats and cashews goes well with sweetness of the beetroot, honey and maple syrup. Plus that extra sweet flavour and alluring aroma from cardamom makes it perfect anytime snack.

Cool Apple Smoothie

Even though the weather is getting crispier and leaves are changing colour, I still prefer a cool smoothie and nothing says fall as much as apples and pumpkins. Using up every single apple from my beautiful apple tree is a task I handle every year. Smoothie is one of the ways I prefer because I don’t essentially need to add unhealthy stuffs to it to make it taste good!

Autumn comfort soup in a bowl

Autumn reminds us about comfort eating somehow. The reason could be lack of sunshine or cold wet days. Usually when we choose food for comfort, we tend to choose fatty, sugary and salty foods. But unlike many other so called comfort foods this soup is highly nutritious and healthy. 

Grilled Asparagus with Toasted Walnuts

Although the british growing season is over, we can still buy asparagus from supermarkets. This delicate green vegetable is very low in caloires and is packed with vitamin A, C & E, folic acid, potassium and iron. Walnuts are high in vitamin E, a powerful antioxidant and it is in a highly beneficial form. They contain high amount of plant based omega-3 fatty acids, protein, magnesium, phosphorus and fibre. 

Curried butternut squash soup

This simple and easy to make soup is an irresistible combination of aromatic spices and sweet and nutty squash. Butternut squash is an excellent source of orange colour providing beta-carotene, an antioxidant. They can protect our body from free radicals.  On top of that, they provide good amount of vitamin C, B5 and B1, folic acid, potassium and fibre as well. Both cumin and fennel seeds are good for the health of digestive system.

Watermelon and cantaloupe ball salad with coconut milk dressing

Every year, from the first day of spring onwards, we all foresee a picnic and wait for the perfect sunny day. This is what I made recently when we went for the first picnic of the year. It’s the cool, refreshing, sweet effect of this salad is the main tempting thing and your family will be asking you to make it for every picnic.

Spaghetti with swiss chard and peas

This is a light and nutritious recipe that is perfect to enjoy any sunny evening. Swiss chard and mint I used in this recipe comes from my small back garden. There are plenty of them at the moment and my mind is in a constant process of finding ways to use them up. The beautiful red and yellow stalks of swiss chard added extra bite to my recipe, but you can use store bought swiss chard if you don’t grow them.
