Delicious & easy fall food as a starter to share or a 1-person dinner

I just love to make tarte flambée. I swear, I could make & eat it almost every single night, because it’s quick and easy to make and simply delicious.

It’s (almost) pizza, has an amazingly crispy bottom that only takes 3 minutes to prepare, you can top it with anything you like and baking time is 10 minutes, which makes it incredibly quick.

Aromatic baby spinach, grape and gorgonzola quiche

grape gorgonzola & spinach tart 2

Comfort food quiche for cold & grey fall days

The weather has been cold and grey lately, so I’ve been looking for something with some stronger flavors. Also, I really love baking things when it’s cold outside, because the oven warms up the whole apartment, it smells delicious and since I admittedly make a mess in the kitchen while cooking it’s good to have time to fix that 😛

I’m going to (food) heaven green power pizza

I'm going to heaven green power pizza-1

So good you’ll start to glow while eating

When I was in the hospital in Durban and completely vitamin drained and disheartened from 3 weeks of hospital food my good friend Jackie’s brother and his wife popped in to bring me a super green vegan pizza – I think it was the best food I’ve ever tasted!

This is my take on that pizza, and although it’s not vegan, it’s pretty fantastic! It’s packed with vegetables, sprouts, hummus, avocado and makes you feel healthier, energized, happy and satisfied 🙂
It features a whole-grain base that resembles tarte flambée more than normal pizza dough, but that has the advantage that it doesn’t need proofing. The advantage is that it do Alfalafa sprouts, chickpeas, yoghurt and avocado provide you with good protein, plenty of vitamin Bs, monosaturated fatty acids and ample amounts of vitamins and minerals, so it’s a real brain-power booster 🙂 The wholegrain base and the hummus will also make sure that you feel repleted longer.

Alright guys, I’m hungry and keen on having on of these babies, so let’s get started! 🙂
