Recipes

Healthy, tasty, tropical food.

Hi and thanks for coming by to my cooking page where you’ll find vegetable-rich friendly recipes to help you spice-up your homecooking journey with real ingredients and flavours that go well together.

Soups and stews with peas, ground provisions – boiled or roasted, seasonal fruits of the land, spices, seeds, nuts and greens from the garden – we make the most them here. Every meal doesn’t have to involve a big production to be healthy, filling and enjoyable.

I grew up eating and now making meals from scratch with real ingredients. In different seasons, i’ve eaten strictly ital/vegan for about 5 years, veg & fish only and the opposite for a shorter stint so not here to advise on what’s best for you. Nowadays, it’s healthy, light yet filling vegetarian food. Light loving reminder (to me too): what comes out of our mouth matters more than what goes in. Words are meals too.

squash soup

moringa leaf, spinach, peanut vanilla with granola, apple, hibiscus flower, moringa flower
lentils soaking in water with herbs before boiling

Onion, garlic and at least a sprinkle of curry simmering in the oil of your choice start off any dish good.
