One of my favorite comfort foods during the cold season ist oven baked pumpkin. And another favorite comfort food is risotto. That’s why I combined the two – I think more comfort on a plate is just not possible! Or maybe yes: I caramelized the pumpkin with sesame seeds and a ginger bread spice mix.… WEITERLESEN


Finally the berry season is starting here! The first ones are always the strawberries and for me, regional berries always taste so much better. And: strawberries are also a perfect superfood like all red and dark berries. Their red plant pigments are powerful antioxidants which strengthen the immune system and protect our cells against damage… WEITERLESEN


Aren’t they pretty, these tartlets? I’m so in love with my mini bundtcake moulds that I also had to try out a rawvegan cashew cheesecake recipe with them. And that’s why I finally wrote down the recipe for these delicious, pretty and very healthy berry tartlets. Since they are more a dessert than a cake… WEITERLESEN


Carrots? Yess!! I always have some in the fridge. Carrots are so versatile. I like them raw, cooked, ovenbaked, in soups or cakes. And I also love that here in Germany I can get carrots from the region all year around. Carrots are so very good to store, that it’s not necessary to import them… WEITERLESEN


We all love pizza, don‘t we? It‘s such a great comfort food, there are so many ways to garnish a pizza and it‘s so easy to make a vegan version. For my artichoke pizza I used fresh, raw marinated artichokes which I put only after the baking on the pizza. That way the artichoke is… WEITERLESEN


I love these vegan cinnamon muffins topped with pears for breakfast from time to time: instead of preparing my bowl with chia oats I put the ingredients in the dough – together with ground almonds, applesauce and maple syrup. That’s why I call them „breakfast muffins“. They are not very sweet and also a healthy… WEITERLESEN


In harvest and winter I have always a hokkaido pumpkin at home. There are so many ways to use it. What about the combo with bread, baby spinach, pomegranate and pistachios? Here my recipe for a delicious and comforting winter salad with my favorite pumpkin. Pumpkin Bread Salad with Pomegranate Serves 2 1 hokkaido pumpkin… WEITERLESEN


Autumn and winter is pumpkin time! I especially love the Hokkaido pumpkin because you don’t have to peel it and it tastes very aromatic. Usually I use pumpkin for savory dishes. But pumpkin is perfect for savory AND sweet dishes, so I created this simple recipe for pumpkin muffins. I know that in the US… WEITERLESEN


Fresh figs taste like summer vacation at the Mediterranean for me – even though they also grow in the Southwest part of Germany. But the best figs in Europe are probably in Greece and France. They ripe until late autumn, so I still try to get them as often as possible these days. The funny… WEITERLESEN


When it becomes chilly outside I love a warm breakfast like this warming millet bowl cooked with nut milk, spiced with cinnamon and topped with wonderful autumn fruits: plums, grapes, pear and gorgeous fresh figs. Millet is glutenfree, full of minerals and a nice change to oats, chia or quinoa. Of course you can prepare… WEITERLESEN
