You know the type of craving, when it’s cold and gloomy outside and you’re dying for a hot, satisfying soup. But you suddenly realise that you have nothing at home for anything “classic”.

It's so good to have a big bowl of spicy and warm comfort food on a cold winter day. Vegetarian and vegan curries can satisfy the pickiest meat eaters too. The spices do the trick. If you can't get vegan paneer, you can substitute it for other vegan cheese, as long as it's soft enough. Add extra chickpeas, spinach, or …

Wintery And Warm Apple And Walnut Strudel

In Foodie Meby eva.katona@yahoo.com1 Comment

Just as easy as delicious. Strudel is a very popular pastry in Central – Europe, both the sweet and the savoury versions. For me, it’s a comfort food and also the manifestation of a Sunday lunch at my Grandparents. My Grandma made the pastry all by herself, even when it was already available in the supermarkets. I don’t have the …

If you’re looking for some quick Christmassy dessert for the weekend, you can definitely steal the show with these. They are a lot easier to make than they look, and that’s a bonus. We tend to forget about our refined sugar intake during the holidays (or let’s just admit: we just don’t care), but these bonbons require no extra sugar. …

So why not make some mulled wine too? They could also make lovely, handmade gifts, if you fill small cellophane bags or glass jars with them. If you think the measurements …

Red Velvet Buttercream Frosting For Cupcakes

In Foodie Meby eva.katona@yahoo.comLeave a Comment

Recently, I had to make some quick, but Christmassy looking cupcakes for a charity Christmas fair, so I decided to use my good old Low Sugar Chocolate Cupcakes recipe and add some fancy frosting. Lovely, velvety, Christmassy red. The cupcakes are ready in 35-40 minutes and the frosting should only take another 20-25 minutes plus cooling in the fridge (about 10-15 …

Review: Nim’s All Natural Vegetable And Fruit Crisps

In Foodie Me, Reviewsby eva.katona@yahoo.com1 Comment

I’m always on the look out for healthy and vegetarian nibbles. Bobcat is a very picky eater, he currently doesn’t eat any fresh fruits or vegetables apart from a little banana and some tomato. No matter how creative and persistent I am, he just won’t eat them. Therefore, I’m keen to try new things just to make him eat some …

Or tell …

Greek Style Farro Salad

In Foodie Meby eva.katona@yahoo.com1 Comment

I fell in love with farro a few years ago and it was love at first taste. Similar to (and often interchangeable) pearl barley and spelt, but it’s more chewy. I love it for its neural taste. I only used it in salads so far, more to explore with soups. I normally buy the quick cook version, otherwise it needs …
