Mango Mousse (with sweet lupin milk)

Mango Mousse (with sweet lupine milk)

I am not dairy-free, but I am certainly a dairy-free enthusiast.
Getting by without dairy milk is easy as there are so many alternatives to it. It’s a whole new milky world!

The sweet lupine milk is made from the lupine legume. It is pretty sweet and has a strong taste. Not really my kind of milk to drink, but I find its richness in taste very interesting ingredient for cooking various recipes.
I thought I give it a chance with a dessert. I made this mango mousse and I have to say it turned out to be a very interesting combination 🙂

Aubergine and Red Lentil Thai Soup

Aubergine and Red Lentil Thai Soup

I like Thai food and most of all I like the green curry. If I could I would enjoy a big portion of this tasty dish, but even a small portion of rice fills me up very quickly.
This is where this soup comes into play! It is nicely spiced with green Thai curry paste and it is not heavy on the belly at all. Yes please, big bowl of soup for me! 

Zimtsterne (cinnamon stars)

Zimtsterne (with tigernut flour)

Zimtsterne or cinnamon stars are one of my favorite Christmas cookies. They are also one of the easiest ones to make.

For the original recipe one needs ground almonds, egg whites and sugar.
Almonds are just great, but I had tigernut flour at home, so I thought why not give it a try!
There is also a bonus of using tiger nuts: they are very sweet, so one can use only half of the sugar normally needed to make these cookies.

Homemade Vegetable Broth

Homemade Vegetable Broth

It’s starting to get real cold outside, it even snowed a little bit. On weather like this, all I can think about is drinking something warm to take the chills away.
How about warming up with a glass of homemade vegetable broth for a change? 

That’s right we are cooking a vegetable broth from scratch!

Cabbage Soup with Ghee

Cabbage Soup with Ghee

Is there a diet that does not include Cabbage Soup?

I don’t think so. This is because cabbage is very low in calories and it is quite filling. However, most important thing about cabbage is that it’s a cruciferous vegetable and we all know how healthy they are. I make my cabbage soup even healthier and richer by adding good fats like Ghee.

Are you maybe now thinking – “Cabbage gives me the bloats”?
This soup is a no-bloater – it is nicely spiced with cumin, which is famous for its anti-bloating effects.

Vermicelles (dairy-free)

Vermicelles (dairy-free)

We all know Switzerland as the land of cheese and chocolate, but a less known fact is that it is also the land of Vermicelles, a dessert made out of sweet chestnut puree.  

As soon as autumn starts you can get these delicious noodles everywhere and in many different variations: Vermicelles cups, tarts and cakes. It is served with whipped cream, meringues, cherries or vanilla ice cream.
