Wheat Sprouts

Sprouting makes wheat seeds contain 300% more proteins responsible for improving metabolism, boosting energy, and keeping blood sugar levels stable. Actually you can take a handful of any sproutable grains/seeds and sprout them. My favorites are wheat and buckwheat sprouts (in case with latter, sprouting works only with raw buckwheat groats). A chewy texture and nutty…

Beet & carrot patties with goat cheese

These vegetable patties are made of beet and carrot pulp left after juicing! Since I’m making fresh juices quite often, there had to be found ways to use juice pulp. The pulp is full of fiber! I tried to incorporate it into various recipes adding to cakes’ batter and vegetable stews. However, these veggie patties/burgers became my favorite…

Ultimate MultiSeed Bread (grain-sugar-gluten-free)

A fantastic alternative to all breads: chewy, wholegrain and tastes like heaven! Quite similar to Nordic Nut Bread. The difference is in partially ground seeds and added leavening agent. Nut-and-seed bread recipes usually contain oil, tahini or ghee. I skip it because such multiseed loaf is already very fat. Preferably to add some water instead. Chunks…

Spicy orange chocolate Brownies

Chocolate brownies to celebrate the spring!:) Made for my friends that were primary initiators to do morning yoga over this weekend together, and we did!:D The base of the recipe I took from a very ancient “The Usborne First Cookbook”.

Ultimate Apple Pie (vegan)

Apples!! There’s nothing original in loving apples:) It’s my favorite fruit though:) Any apples in any form. I rarely cook them preferring fresh fruit most. For many years I was making this simple Apple pie/tart, experimenting with crust and ingredients it’s made of. The basic apple filling recipe remains always approximately the same. Last Sunday…

Almond cranberry cantuccini (biscotti)

Since the year started, I’m trying to do more things that have never done before, in cooking too. It’s quite exciting and captivating! These crisp and crunchy, “twice baked” cookies were the first attempt of home-made cantuccini. My lovely friend of Italian descend called them cantuccini, when I usually use a word “biscotti”. He knows it better though:D…

After giving it a try, I can tell that everybody would love these spicy, chocolaty, soft and…

Orange cookies (vegan) (Melomakarona)

For the idea of this recipe I’m grateful to foodzesty.com blog. These Greek Christmas cookies impressed me by the mix of olive oil and semolina. Under the impression I’ve made a couple of variations of vegan cookies with semolina, and these slightly different Melomakarona:) It is suggested to sprinkle the cookies with syrup made of sugar, water, honey and…
