A cook book for every mood…

My boyfriend and I got a beautiful cook book for Christmas – thank you Ellen! It’s called NOPI and has impressive recipes, perfect for showing off every now and then. Whilst flicking through the pages I realised I have hardly any cook books. So, I thought it would be fun to see what’s new and put together a healthyish wish list.

Once again I prepared an impromptu dish and just as I’m about to tuck in I decide I should share it on the blog. Therefore this post isn’t picture heavy nor is it beautifully styled. But, it’s a real moment from my daily life which hopefully you will agree is far better! This cheeky cous cous salad is as a healthy vegetarian lunch option or a lightweight dinner that’s perfect during the summer months. Cous cous provides a good source of lean vegetarian protein, the grains swell up making this nice and filling and a good source of fiber. I added lot’s of complimenting flavours to make sure it’s satisfying and tasty. View Post

This is a super easy Thai curry recipe that we like to prepare at home whenever the weather is a bit cold or miserable and we need some cheering (or warming) up. Sorry that it’s just the one image in this post. Christian prepared this tasty looking dish during the week and as an after thought I decided to take a quick photo so I could share his recipe with you. Thanks to curry paste everyone can prepare an impressive tasting dish that’s full of exotic flavours. We pick up ours from the local Asian supermarket here in Germany but I used to buy the same ones in England also. For this mild dish we used a yellow Thai curry paste with chicken, sweet potato and chickpeas. View Post

A Modern Way To Eat by Anna Jones is my go-to cook book for healthy vegetarian (and some vegan) food recipes. Unlike many modern, healthy cook books this includes ingredients you can find at the local supermarket with dishes that are hearty enough to satisfy my hunger! And considering Jamie Oliver has given this his stamp of approval I knew I was onto a good thing when I received this as a gift. View Post
