Banana Milkshake

Welcome back to my kitchen. Today I want to show you a simple, nourishing & delicious recipe: banana milkshake. I know at first sight it seems a basic recipe, but what I do and want to get you used to do the same, is to add superfoods in almost everything you consume. Why? Because these ingredients,  in very small quantities bring you a fantastic nutrients intake without calories,  a problem which is on everybody’s mind,  who is interested in a healthy lifestyle. Like I said in the video,  I hope soon, if time will be on my part, what superfoods I have and use in my home. Surely, this will not be the last time you’ll hear me talk about them. I...

Simple hummus recipe

My darlings, I met recently with Laura Musuroaea, who told me she doesn’t eat meat anymore and tries to have more, healthy diet, but doesn’t know how to diversify her meals more. So I invited her into  #bucatarialuiCarmen ( Carmen’s Kitchen ) to try together a couple of simple and delicious recipes. On my youtube channel  you will find the lunch idea, and if you want to see what we prepared for breakfast  check out Laura’s channel. For lunch I tried a simple hummus recipe with chickpeas and baked peppers, which I saw recently at Ligia Pop’s  book launch. We are proud to tell you that it tastes as good as hers. What do we need? 200g cooked chickpeas,  100 g baked pepper, 1 teaspoon...

Raw Banana pudding

My dears, even if I didn’t post a recipe on the blog in a long time, I have been searching and experiementing all sorts of combinations. Today I want to show you a pudding which was very good. Probably because I like bananas. I used a banana, 100 ml almond milk, three teaspoons of chia seeds, one teaspoon of coconut oil and one teaspoon of cinnamon. I put them in the blender and mixed them very well. I also made a dates sauce with orange juice and a litte cardamom. You leave the pudding in the fridge half an hour and after that you add the sauce. When I took the pictures, I realized it would have been a good ideea to add some...

Carrots cream soup

I know that lately I couldn’t keep you posted about all my culinary experiments. I promised to show you the recipe for a soup with cashew sour cream and now I’m keeping it.    Ingredients: 6 screaped carrots, one avocado, a 3 cm piece of ginger, 1 clove of garlic, 50g fresh tomatoes, 2 spoons of Himalaya salt, one teaspoon of turmerique. We put them all in the Thermomix or in the blender and we mix for 10 seconds. We add 300ml of water and we mix well until it looks like a cream soup. We put it in bowls, and we add a spoon of cashew sour cream.    Enjoy and I’m waiting for your impressions.   ...

Cashew sour cream

I’ve been trying to find a way to replace cheese, yogurt and sour cream for a while. Not totally, but in a 70-80% proportion. I don’t know if you know this, but cheese is harder to digest than meat and that’s why I’m trying to avoid it. Even though, from time to time I get a craving for cheese and tomatoes. Today I managed to find a very good recipe for sour cream. I’m still working on that for yogurt and cheese. Raw sour cream is made of cashew(caju).    You will need:  250g of cashew Half a lemon’s juice One spoon of Himalaya salt One spoon of apple vinegar Around 150 ml of water Put the cashew in water for four hours of soaking,...

DETOX SALAD

Every day we have an intake of chemicals in our body from the air we breathe, but also through processed aliments. That’s why, from time to time, our body needs a cleaning or in modern terms, a detox. The best method trough which we can do that is a proper diet. Some choose a juice diet , others preffer detox salads, based mostly on green colour aliments. Why green?Because everything that is green alkalizes our body. Through using processed aliments in our daily menus our body gets too much acidity, and in an acid environment all bacteria and diseases have a proper place to multiplicate. The moment we choose to give up thermic prepared aliments and we base our diet...

Breakfast with figs

My dears, this week’s recipe is one of my favourites. Because I like figs very much I thought I should use them in one of my recipes for my blog (I use them in many mixtures which I make in the blender, but now I wanted their shape to be seen, not to grind them). And because fruit goes so well with yogurt and cereal, I mixed a bio Olimpus yogurt with Crunchy bio cereal from Verival or crunchy cereal with forest fruit from Sanovita. I put the mixture in a thin layer on the bottom  of the glass, I decorated with figs the side of the glass and in the middle I added more of the mixture, I put almonds and...

Egg and spinach breakfast

I sometimes feel the need to eat eggs in the morning, but not fried, in order to be more healthy. I found a way to do it but still to remind me of the fried egg my grandmother used to cook. I put lightly boiled spinach and egg opened in hot water on toasted bread or crackers. For garnishing, I chose boiled asparagus and sun flower seeds. I already know that asparagus is great for detox, anti-aging and is also an aphrodisiac, and the sun flower seeds are a great source of healthy fats, fibers and protein. I think you already know that spinach has plenty of chlorophyll which helps regenerate the blood, and the egg has a lot of...

Bruschetta with avocado

My dears, I have always preferred easy-to-make recipes which do not give me headaches. Fortunately, there are so many that I never get to be worried. Until now I have showed you smoothies and other types of breakfast, but today I present you something salty, light, tasty and nutritious. I have used all grain bio bread with sunflower seeds from Cereal Bio, which you can find at Plafar and Carrefour bio stand. Then I added avocado paste (one mature avocado smashed with the fork topped with a bit of pink Himalayan salt). I have decorated it with bio tomatoes from Bio Legumina (www.biolefumina.ro) and a bit of cashew cheese. You can use normal cheese or you can find cashew cheese at...
