Edamame Smash

A tasty spread that is high in protein… The edamame (young soybeans) in this spread offer a complete protein, as well as calcium, vitamin C and iron.

Roasted Fennel Pesto

Roasted fennel bulb with roasted almonds, fennel fronds, olive oil and garlic make a more-ish pesto that teams up very nicely with anything. What’s anything? We mixed it through roasted potatoes, yum. You can also spread it on wholegrain bread,  use it as a dip with carrot sticks and celery sticks, or mix it through salads. Or just eat…

Corn Fritters

These fritters are always a hit in our cafe – everyone loves them and many ask for the recipe – so here it is. Egg-free, dairy-free, gluten-free, but definitely not taste-free! The fritters are bound by a ‘linseed egg’, a great egg replacement in fritters – basically 1 Tbsp linseed and 3 Tbsp water mixed…

Creamy Potato Celeriac Soup

Ever tasted something and though, ‘wow, I have to have that again!’? This soup was one of those items for us. A friend of ours made it, based on recipes she grew up with in Poland. It’s a thick, creamy soup, served with fried onions, roasted diced potatoes and celeriac on top, and a sprinkling…

Rosemary Citrus Drink

This is a sparkly, tangy drink, great for autumn or winter. Fresh rosemary gives it a flavourful twist. People always ask for the recipe.

Chia ‘Cheesecake in a glass’ Pudding

We all enjoyed this delicious creamy chia dessert at our mid-year Youth Space dinner. Themed on a cheesecake but served in a glass, it looks good, tastes good and is loaded with nutritional goodness – including lots of minerals, omega 3s, fibre, good fats & protein. There’s no cooking (apart from lightly toasting some slivered almonds to…

Sprouted Chickpea Salad

We’ve had this for lunch several times recently, it’s packed with flavour and colourful. The nutty tahini flavour complements the chickpeas to make a hearty, satisfying salad. Tahini is one of the best sources of calcium, as well as being  high in iron, potassium, and magnesium. Chickpeas give a great package deal of protein and fibre.

Potato Fritters

These fritters are dead easy. Seriously. If you can mash potatoes you can make these. A food processor is a very handy tool for grating the carrot and onion – speeds things up. Cook it, mash it, mix it, form it, bake/ fry it; done! The only thing you have to be careful of is…

Gems!

Sometimes there’s no bread in the house. Or you are tired of bread. Or you want to avoid yeast. What can you supply? Introducing: Gems! These are little biscuits made with very few ingredients, and delicious when fresh out of the oven. They are yeast free, can be gluten free, and quite versatile. This recipe…

Rice & Kidney Bean Salad

  Gluten-free & vegan We got this salad recipe from our friends in Germany. It’s a tasty, filling but light salad that everyone here appreciated. The mixture of colours is very appealing. Great salad to try this summer!

Runny noses and sore throats…?

In our kitchen we make this drink whenever someone has a sore throat or any hint of a cold coming on – it is a sage, lemon and honey drink.

Seasonal Pasta

This delicious meal is an adaptation of a dish done by Thomas Keller. He used homemade gnocci, we are using brown rice pasta spirals. The dish is done in a frypan, limiting serves to one or two at a time – if you try to do more at once, the different elements lose their shape…
