I bought my first portion of strawberries this season. I was walking around one of this local fruit stalls and saw these little, red creatures… and couldn’t resist, I had to buy some. I bought about half kilo and guess what? I’ve ate them all! Of course, I managed to wash them first. 🙂 Do you think that this is a matter of me being pregnant…or I’ve just missed them so much? All in all, I’ve also bought more strawberries the next day and I’ve prepared this mint and dairy- free cocktail. I’ve used oat milk. It tastes best when cooled! You need to try! 🙂
180 gram fresh strawberries
200 ml oat milk
Few fresh mint leaves
Put all the ingredients into the blender and mix them. Enjoy! 🙂
I love cauliflower pizza for its lightness. It tastes like normal pizza, but you haven’t got this feeling of heaviness after you eat it. It’s also perfect for those, who are on a gluten-free diet as it doesn’t contain any flour at all. It’s easy to make and delicious. Double the ingredients two make two pizzas at once as it disappears very quickly! 🙂
250 g cauliflower (about half of small head)
30 g mozzarella
25 g parmesan
½ teaspoon salt
For tomato sauce:
250 ml tomato mixture
1 garlic clove
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1 teaspoon dried basil
½ teaspoon sweet paprika
pinch of black pepper
your favorite veggies (I’ve used mushrooms and yellow pepper)
mozzarella (amount you like 🙂 )
Preheat oven to 220 C.
Grate the cauliflower, parmesan and mozzarella. Then, mix it all together with egg and salt.
Prepare a baking sheet by laying a piece of parchment paper on it. Put the ‘dough’ on it and form a pizza. Don’t worry if you have an impression that dough is too runny, it will be perfect after baking.
Bake pizza for 20 minutes then take it out and put some tomato sauce, mozzarella and the veggies of your choice. Bake for 5 more minutes.
Serve with fresh basil and the rest of the tomato sauce. Enjoy! 🙂
Wash the fish. Warm up the oven to 180°. Combine 2 tablespoons of olive oil with garlic, fresh dill and some salt. Cover the fish with the prepared mix and put into the oven for 15 minutes.
Wash the quinoa. Add 2 glasses of water, one glass of washed quinoa to a pot. Cover it and cook for 15 minutes. Then, add 1 tablespoon of olive oil and some salt to taste. Leave it covered for another 5 minutes.
Wash the lettuce and carrot. Cut the carrot into thin slices or use carrot sharpener if you have one. Prepare dressing: mix two tablespoons of olive oil with 2 tablespoons of apple vinegar. Add some salt and sesame seeds to taste. Mix the vegetables with the prepared dressing a moment before serving the dish. Enjoy! 🙂
I believe that a secret of good sushi is well-prepared rice and fresh ingredients. Please find below some step by step rice cooking instructions and sushi rolling tips. I’m not a sushi master, but my sushi is homemade, fresh and tasty. It’s a beautiful, creative dish ideal for family or friends gathering, or the evening with your love, or Bridget Jones pic with the glass of your favorite wine… 🙂 You decide! 🙂
1 glass sushi rice
1 glass water
6 tablespoons Japanese vinegar
2 tablespoons sugar
1.5 teaspoon salt
A piece of smoked salmon
4 Nori sheets
Wash the rice; rinse it several times until the moment there is no more starch coming out of it. Then soak the rice in the clean water for 20 minutes.
Cook the rice. First, strain the soaked rice, then put it into the pot, add one glass of water and cover the pot. You need to observe the pot and wait for the moment when it starts boiling. When this moment comes, you need to stir the rice, cover the pot again and cook for 10 minutes on the lowest heat. Then, turn off the heat and leave the pot covered for another 10 minutes.
Season the rice. Warm 6 tablespoons of vinegar with 1.5 teaspoon salt and 2 tablespoons sugar. Mix together with the rice and wait until it cools down. Then, you can start rolling!
Prepare other ingredients. Wash and cut the cucumber and avocado into long pieces. I remove the seeds form the cucumber as it contains too much water inside. Cut the fish.
I use ½ of nori. I wrap it in foil, so I do not need to clean it later.
Gently spread the rice on the nori, leaving about 3 cm of margin.
Place the ingredients near the middle of the nori, start with the fish; you can also put some wasabi first, if you like. You can add some creamy cheese and sesame seeds here too.
Fold over the ingredients and roll tightly!
Cut the roll into pieces and start admiring your creation or eating at once 😉 Enjoy!

If I had to
choose one meal which is “my special” this is it. This is also my husband’s
It arouses the memories from our trip to Thailand. If you are bored with another chop or casual soup for dinner challenge yourself, try something new and prepare this curry. 🙂 If you aren’t used to eating spicy dishes give less curry paste. Enjoy this mix of oriental bite and move yourself to an exotic land at least for a while… 🙂
