A greener take on an Israeli breakfast staple that is sure to make a statement without all the fuss. Shakshuka! Yeah, I also have no idea how to pronounce it, probably something close to the sound I make when sneezing . A North African and Middle Eastern dish that has grown popular in Israel. This Green Shakshuka is the first Israeli cuisine to grace my kitchen. Simple, healthy and vegetarian with all the greens and none of the tomatoes. It's the perfect breakfast to serve up eggs in a...

Seasonal citrus juice with cinnamon and ginger to add a spicy and warm flavour . Did you know that you don't need a juicer to actually make your own juices at home ? A sturdy blender and a nut milk bag, cheese cloth or fine strainer would do the trick ! I almost always use my blender and nut milk bag to make a juice because it's so much less work to clean up afterwards than with a juicer. Just remember to chop the fruit and vegetables into...

Vegan laksa with soba noodles and crispy chickpeas. When it comes to laksa it's all about taking that extra few minutes to fry off the spicy and aromatic paste that will play off perfectly against the creaminess of the coconut versus the acidity of the lime and freshness of the coriander and mint making it a well balanced laksa. In most recipes online you'll see that there is fish sauce added for that unami taste (aka 5th taste), but I'm not so keen on fish sauce as it's just too...

Experience the food culture of Israel and Jordan at its best and try the best traditional cuisines. There is this quote in the middle east that is something along the lines of : "Even if you're full, you can still always eat 40 more bites of food." There is a possibility that this is much deeper than it sounds and relates to their generosity and hospitality when it comes to food. But it's also about eating a lot of food around a table with friends and family. Both Jordan and Israel have...

Nothing can warm up the belly quite as well as soup can. I also tend to be a little lazier during the winter months when it comes to making dinner and so soup is definitely a go-to for me. With minimum dishes and ingredients this creamy mushroom soup is a winter dinner winner . The creaminess of the soup comes from the coconut milk and flour, while the lentils add extra fiber and thickness. You can use gluten-free/regular all-purpose flour, brown rice flour, buckwheat flour, tapioca starch...

With beautiful tropical beaches, rainforests, incredible monuments and just nature at its best, Brazil is a destination that has to be on everyone's bucketlist. I spent 11 days in total traveling Brazil and that still was not enough if I have to be honest. It won't be long before I go back to this tropical paradise. One of the biggest highlights of the trip has to be the 4 days we spent in the Amazon rainforest . We stayed at Juma Amazon Lodge, surrounded by the birds, monkeys...
