seed-crackers

These crackers are dead easy to prepare without any equipment and are a great stand-by for those snack attacks. They are delicious on their own, but also go with dips, humus, vegan cheeses,  as an accompaniment to soups or salads, cheeses and even with sweet toppings. They are nutrient dense, providing ample essential fatty acids and are very satisfying – so much better and healthier than plain old potato crisps. Ingredients 200 g sunflower seeds 60 g flax seeds (coarsely crushed in […] Continue reading →

I got the original version of this recipe from my daughter Sara, who has a great collection of vegetarian cook books. I am proud to say that both my daughters have become really good cooks. We seem to have inherited this trait from  my grandmother on my mother’s side, who was always able to make the most delicious meals out of nothing. My mother (whose biggest hobby is cooking, even at age 85) told me that  in the WW II  and post-war years, when starvation was common in […] Continue reading →

I discovered this recipe  in a health magazine. It took me all of 10 minutes to make, and after 2 hours in the freezer, the chocolates were ready to eat, although it was just as delicious to lick the bowl!

This recipes makes about 12 – 14 individual chocolates. Ingredients  2 Tablespoons of raw cacao powder 2 Tablespoons Tahini (or any […] Continue reading →

This is a quick, delicious alternative to just raw chocolates – great if you are pushed for time and need something in a hurry.
