Every year we have this beautifully rainbow colored swiss chard at the market. It has all these stunning red, pink, orange, yellow and white shades. I love to cook with it as it’s just a joy to have these many colors on the plate. Mostly I just stew it, put a little cream and spices on it and eat it with rice or pasta. But to honor all it’s beauty I wanted to create a recipe that’s more extraordinary. And so I created a savory galette to show of the whole rainbow! … More Rainbow Swiss Chard Galette
Winter time means kale time. It must’ve been 4 or 5 years ago that I first had kale salad. It was a delight. Ever since it’s one of my favorite winter salads (next to my other two favorites – chicory salad and the good old lambs lettuce) and I’m always looking forward to it. I love to put a sweet component and a touch of color into my salads – so here you have it: kale and raddicchio rosso with cranberries and nuts. Hope you enjoy it as much as I do! … More Colorful Kale Salad
At the moment I’m really over the moon with rhubarbs but also that berries are finally coming into season. I could basically live off of these! Last weekend the very talented Olga from …magazin was talking about crumble, and as I haven’t made one in a way to long time, I felt inspired to do so. Obviously I had to make one with rhubarbs and berries.. because, you know, it’s super delicious! But as you maybe know from previous posts, I bake for MaxMoriz (it’s a vegan ‚Mittagsbuffet‘ in Aarau, Switzerland), so it had to be a cake. I simply made a less juicy (but still juicy) crumble on top of a fluffy and light vanilla cake base. Turned out really delicious and it’s the perfect alternative if you want to have all the perks of crumble minus the mess.. Have a nice day! … More Vegan Berry&Rhubarb-Crumble-Cake
Last weekend I was working at the market and there were these beautiful rhubarbs. I immediately knew, I had to buy some and cook something with them, as I just love rhubarbs! As a kid, I used to pick them fresh from the garden, dip them in sugar and eat them raw. I tried this last year again, but it was way to sour. So now I mostly make compote out of it and eat it with my breakfast bowl. But as you know, I love to bake and this is why – obviously – I came up with a rhubarb cake recipe. It’s fluffy, not too soggy or too sweet, with just a perfect amount of sourness. … More Vegan Rhubarb & Coconut Cake
So it was spring equinox and our forests start blooming and getting all green again. This means a very happy me! Obviously I had to go for a long walk to fill my lungs with that fresh spring air and soak in all those soft sunbeams. On our way trough the woods, we passed a spot, where my brother and I used to drive around with our bikes. It’s such a magical place with a lot of very small paths and every spring it was filled with a ton of wild garlic and flowers. We harvested quite a bit of the garlic on the way home and I made a fresh garlic pesto that night. I think it tasted even a bit better, because it was from this magical childhood place. … More Creamy Wild Garlic Pesto
Every year I’m really exited for citrus season to start. I love the smell and taste of every single citrus fruit, but oranges do hold a special place in my heart. Probably it’s my fathers love for them, that he passed on to me. Every winter he would buy big bags full of oranges and store a few of them in the fridge, because they taste better cold. During advent season I squeezed the peel so it would squirt into the flame of the candles, that we lit up every night. What a wonderful scent!
So now that we started selling oranges at the market I of course wanted to make an orange cake – and so I did. I’ll promise you – your house will smell delicious (and you’re taste buds will also be delighted)! … More Vegan Orange-Ginger Cake
My Instagram feed has been filled with pictures of cinnamon buns lately and since they look so darn delicious I really wanted to make them myself. But because it’s pumpkin season I also wanted to make something with pumpkins – so why not combine it? And let me tell you – if you’re only going to try out one of my recipes, I strongly recommend this one. It turned out perfectly fluffy-pumpkiny-moist if I say so myself. … More Vegan Pumpkin Cinnamon Rolls
