I always find it quite hard to be original when it comes to vegetarian recipes. These recipes feel less familiar to me. So, I often search the internet looking for inspiration. While looking, I found a vegetarian recipe for pasta with mushrooms. I can work with this! Because it is still fall, I wanted to give the dish a little fall feeling. That is why I chose to season the dish with walnuts. It is a simple, but delicious recipe! I also think it would taste great with some parmesan cheese! Just saying!
Throughout the entire year, you can find red beets in the supermarket. Did you know that red beets are really healthy? They help reduce high blood pressure, work anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and fight damage to your cognitive function. Interesting right? This means, I have no other choice than to use red beets in one of my recipes. Eventually, I decided to make a sauce out of red beets. Because a red beet sauce made out of only red beets is quite plain, I added some more ingredients to the mix. That way the sauce will have even more flavour.
This dish is actually a twist on a traditional Belgian dish called steak with fries. A delicious steak, served with fries, bacon and a sauce of red beet and apple. You can choose to pour the sauce over your meat or just use it as a dip for your fries! Both are equally good! Finally, you can find the recipe for this dish if you scroll down a bit. Now, you can get cooking! Good luck!

Personally, I am not a big fan of regular potatoes. If I am cooking at home, I don’t include potatoes in my recipes. Nevertheless, I love the sweet potato!! Preparing a sweet potato in 15 minutes was actually quite the challenge! I tried to cook/bake it in several ways to see which was the best method. Of course, I took the texture of the potato into account as criteria. Nobody wants a quick but flat potato, right? I ended up grilling the sweet potato for 10 minutes and then I put it for another 5 minutes in the microwave! Tadaaa! Read more →
