The amazing colors and the combination of sweet and salty flavors will convince even the biggest “salad doubters” out there.
Cauliflower Crust Pizza
Cauliflower crust pizza is notorious for being a bit more difficult to make. Difficult in the way that it is highly likely that the crust won’t hold together and you won’t be able to hold a pizza slice in your hands. So I’ve been searching for a perfect recipe for quite a while, comparing the ingredients and trying to figure out which one might turn out great. This is it!
Chanterelle Carrot Cauliflower Soup
Since it’s the season for delicious Chanterelles, I decided to make a Chanterelle soup.

I went for cauliflower and I have to say, I’m really satisfied with how the soup turned out.

Just goes to show that simple and quick recipes are always the best.

This pizza is an amazing combination of sweetness and saltiness. It’s made on the made spelt flour pizza base that you can find on the blog, and is topped with sauteed onions, cooked ham, feta cheese, dried figs and arugula. You might not believe it but it’s an amazing combination of flavors.
This French classic is a really delicious dish and is great because you can serve it either hot as a main dish for up to 5 or 6 people or as one of the many snacks for a dinner party because it tastes just as amazing cold.
Quinoa Crust Cottage Cheese and Mushrooms Tart
I love tarts and pies and quiches. Who doesn’t?
But most recipes for all of the above include (or at least used to include) wheat flour. As I avoid wheat flour completely and try to avoid other gluten flours as well, I am in constant search for alternatives. Doing so, I came across this recipe and decided to give it a try. As you can imagine, it turned out to be delicious, otherwise I wouldn’t have shared it with you.
