New recipe: popped quinoa chocolate

You might have made quinoa before, but you probably never used it in a combination with chocolate! I love experimenting with quinoa, I’ve made pink quinoa and quinoa risotto for example. One time I made popped quinoa for breakfast and I decided that if you can make chocolate with popped rice, you can also make it […]

Restaurant Atelier in Amsterdam

Have you already been to restaurant Atelier in Amsterdam? They opened two years ago but they just renewed their interior and their menu. I have to admit that when I first looked at the map I thought it was a bit far out. It’s located behind the Olympic Stadion. But I found out it’s less […]

Fawaffles: Falafel Waffles

I experimented in the kitchen once again! After making Tortizza (tortilla-pizza) and Courgetti (courgette spaghetti) I made ‘Fawaffles’ this time, a hybrid between falafel and waffles! To make these healthy waffles that you can have for lunch or dinner, all you need is a waffle iron and falafel dough. Some supermarkets sell ready-to-use falafel dough, […]

Vegan Portobello Asparagus Burger

If you visit my site regularly you probably know that I love vegetarian and vegan burgers. I often share pictures of veggie burgers on my Instagram account and I’ve shared recipes for vegan falafel burgers and red beet burgers. I even went on a quest to find the best veggie burger of Amsterdam! Now it […]

Food Talks

When I got the invitation for Food Talks I was enthusiastic straight away: I love to talk about food! But the event was even more interesting than I thought. Food Talks was organized by HelloFresh to share trends, ideas, developments and research about (healthy) food, dinner time or about other food-related topics. This first Food […]

Almost everything on their menu comes straight from organic bakeries, local farms and herb gardens. Vegetarians, vegans and people who eat gluten free are welcome for breakfast and lunch at HOOI.

Summer Dinner: strawberry salad

It’s really warm in the Netherlands this week. Some people might find it dificult to think of something to make for dinner with this weather. I made this vegetarian salad with rocket, strawberries, pecan nuts and feta cheese this week. Salads are perfect for this warm weather. As is any ‘cold’ dish. These recipes are […]

Healthy hotspots in Utrecht

Utrecht is the most centrally located city in the Netherlands, but not the most innovative one if it comes to food. Many restaurants still serve the traditional menu they’ve had for years. Luckily there are a few gems in this city. On this page are my recommendations if you want to have a healthy lunch or dinner […]

Recipe vegan cranberry smoothie bowl

Smoothie bowls are the perfect solution for when you’re not a morning person. Having a healthy breakfast is very important as you’ll need energy to focus and get things done. But when you find it difficult to get up in the morning you’ll probably also find it difficult to eat breakfast as it can be […]

New Food Mash Up: Sushi Pizza

I like mash ups for songs, but I also like mash ups for food! I’ve made a breakfast pizza before, and a sushi pie. And now it’s time for: sushi pizza! I’ve made two sushi pizza recipes; one with salmon for my boyfriend and a vegetarian sushi pizza for myself. Not only do I have […]

Recipe for when you don’t feel like cooking

Sometimes you just have had a busy day, you’re tired or your short on time. Those days it’s quite easy to buy a quick microwave meal, tv-dinner or take-out. But (as you probably know) those aren’t your healthiest options. Take-out and delivery often hardly contain any vegetables, and microwave meals often contain a lot of […]

Healthy hotspots in Eindhoven

Eindhoven has been a bit behind food-wise. For years there were little healthy hotspots to be found. Luckily things are changing! On this page I’ve listed my favorite healthy hotspots in Eindhoven. Hopefully I’ll soon be able to expand the list and add more veggie friendly food spots! Looking for hotspots in other cities in The […]

Testing: Japanese candy

You know you’re a foodie when one of your favorite things to do when in another country is going to the supermarket. I always bring home some typical products of the country I’ve been to. Often I do this so I can create recipes from the country at home (I’ve made Pad Thai after Thailand […]

Vegetarian food at Taste of Amsterdam

This weekend Amsterdam is hosting the mother of all of food festivals: Taste of Amsterdam. At this culinary event you’ll find restaurants, food brands and chefs introducing new flavors or showing you their signature dishes. They all serve small portions of their favorite dishes so you can ‘taste’ as many different things as you can. […]

Courgetti Recipes

Courgetti (‘pasta’ made of courgettes) is such a great invention! A couple of months ago I’ve bought a spiralizer and I’m creating one healthy recipe after the other. Using courgette instead of pasta is such an easy way to make your dinner vegan, gluten free, low carb and super healthy! You’ve probably already figured out that […]

Vegetarian and vegan food in Tokyo

If you’re a pescetarian (you don’t eat meat but you do eat fish), you’ll have no problem eating well in Japan, as you can probably find more dishes containing fish than meat. But if you’re a vegetarian or vegan you might  need to search a bit harder. No need to worry, there are definitely vegetarian […]
