Good morning, dear friends! Hey, don’t leave the page! I know, I know, you saw the title of the post and all of a sudden you frowned, right? Well, I ve got news for you! Broccoli can be pretty awesome! I have been a broccoli/cauliflower fan ever since I was a kid! I am not kidding! And it seems my baby boy likes all veggies just like his mom. Even if he is only 11 months old he has already tried all kind of veggies, even stuff that I tried a few years ago such as fennel, celeriac, butternut squash etc. Well this is the destiny of a vegetarian food blogger’s kid! This salad is simple and delicious. Made with few ingredients in a few minutes it is beautiful and nutritious. Raisins, dill, roasted sesame seeds and flaked almonds boost the flavour of the salad and transfrom it into a delicious dish! Do try it! Happy weekend everyone!

10 broccoli florets, cooked al dente

Good evening, dear friends! I am back with another awesome recipe that I wanted so much to share with you! We love making truffles at home! They are so yummy and you can play with the ingredients and make a healthy snack for those times that you desperately need something sweet!  My daughter asked me to make her a new recipe a few days ago and as I opened my pantry I came up with a quinoa jar. So I decided to use it in a sweet recipe. What an idea! Truffles with quinoa and other nutritious goodies! I just love how versatile quinoa is! They turned out amazing and my daughter just loved them! You should try them too!
Happy cooking people!
