Red Wine Poached Pears

Luscious & decadent dessert that can be served warm or cold. Poached Pears is a traditional French recipe that was originally developed to consume unattractive-looking fruits with a grainy flesh in a fancier way (kind of zero-waste recipe of old times, wasn’t it? 🙂 Preparation is very easy and can be very quick as well…

Silken Tofu Mousse

As always, the simplest things are usually the best one, and frankly, this is so far my favorite non-baked vegan dessert of all. Creamy and rich yet light and delicate, sweetened just a little to appreciate the flavor of ingredients like Bourbon Vanilla and dark chocolate. This dessert is texture-wise something between the mousse and creamy custard, having…

Orange & Olive Oil Muffins

Sweet and tangy. Simple yet sophisticated – Sunday morning & Friday night. That was just a few words that described those refreshing (and pretty) summer muffins that are, straightforward – enjoyed more by adults than kids. Strong flavor and aftertaste of olive oil is what makes them insanely delicious, irresistible, and kind of adult-ish. Your…

Vegan Koka Cookies

Koka Cookies or perhaps Koka Biscuits? They are full of rich cacao powder, crispy on the outside, and because of the banana, soft and chewy-ish in the center. Cookies contain just a small amount of coconut sugar and besides being vegan, they are naturally gluten-free as well. They taste best with a cup of dark…

Vegan Chocolate Mousse A.K.A Aquafaba

Delicious, a miraculous vegan dessert prepared from the most basic ingredient that’s always in stock at home-canned chickpeas. I love preparing recipes where nothing gets wasted and you use the most of each ingredient. This is a perfect example. From one can of chickpeas, you can make hummus and a delicious dessert at the same time. Wonderful, isn’t…

Flummery with a Fruit Sauce

A great dessert with a weird-sounding name will surprise you with a great taste, fast preparation and minimum ingredients needed. As at the moment we are limited with a variety of ingredients, semolina, milk or fruits can be interchanged for anything you have at home right now. My flummery recipe is made with semolina –…

Chocolate Mousse with Berries Puree

Ready in 15 minutes and so delicious. It’s creamy&rich and refreshing at the same time. A great dessert for days like these, when we should track how much sugar we intake more than usual – as we don’t move too much during this lockdown. As always use what you have, if you don’t have berries,…

Vegan Banana Ice-cream

Dear friends here is the recipe for a great, in-no-time prepared vegan banana ice-cream. I made this ice-cream a couple days ago when I did not know what to do with overripe bananas sitting on my kitchen counter. I hate (and I try never to do) to throw away any food, so making this ice-cream…

Homemade Ice-cream (without condensed-milk and ice-cream machine)

Before coming out with this recipe, I tried a bunch of ice-cream recipes available on the internet. Most of them call for a combination of heavy (whipping) cream and condensed milk in an approximate ratio of 50:50. A great quality of condensed milk is that it makes ice-cream very creamy, soft and easy-to-scoop. Ice-cream made with…

Peanut Butter Chocolate Cups

This is the easiest and fastest recipe ever. Peanut Butter Cups are a great treat to enjoy if you are craving something small during the day. Or simply don’t feel like bake anything complicated. Peanut Butter Cups are a great source of immediate energy, good before doing the sport they won’t leave your stomach full and…
