Tuscan Kale and White Bean Soup (Ribollita)

Tuscan Kale and White Bean Soup (Ribollita)

If you ask anyone what is a typical Tuscan dish that’s hearty, filling and perfect for a cold winter’s night, you’ll likely get the answer “a traditional Ribollita”, otherwise known as a rustic Tuscan vegetable stew. It’s loaded with dark greens, lots of beans, vegetables and thickened with day-old bread. In my version, which isn’t […]

Soaked buckwheat Chickpea bread with seeds, vegan, gluten-free

Buckwheat Chickpea Bread (vegan + gluten-free)

There is something truly satisfying about making a tasty (and successful!) homemade gluten-free bread. Especially if it’s vegan too. Of course, I have my tried and true favorites, but I am always looking for new takes on gluten-free breads. This version is a buckwheat chickpea bread that is made with two parts whole, soaked buckwheat. […]

Lentil Quinoa Eggplant Salad Recipe, Vegetarian, Vegan, Gluten-free

Lentil Quinoa Eggplant Salad

Listen up aubergine-adverse. Here’s an eggplant recipe that fully disguises my favorite purple vegetable. A warm lentil quinoa eggplant salad. The secret is always in the sauce. The trick… peeled eggplant that is slow cooked in a tomato-y sauce with a little chili and cayenne until tender. Okay, of course I could recognise that there […]

Gluten-free, low-carb, super healthy zucchini noodle salad made with summer squash, mini Roma tomatoes, fresh basil, pine nuts and parmesan tossed in a lemony dressing.

Summer Zucchini Noodle Salad with Tomato, Basil and Pine Nuts

Despite the chilly Hamburg weather, I am embracing summer… fully. And it starts this summer zucchini noodle salad. Seriously, we left 38°C in France, only to come back to 14°C in Germany. We are talking a major difference here — in the height of summer! So yeah, I am trying to channel some warm vibes […]

Giant White Beans with No-Cook Tomato Sauce

Giant White Beans with No-Cook Tomato Sauce

This dish with giant white beans in a no-cook tomato sauce has got to be the easiest thing to put together while on holiday. Especially in the south of France where ripe tomatoes are plentiful, as is fresh basil. Okay, truth be known, I actually brought the bag of “Riesenbohnen” (aka jumbo or giant beans) […]

Roasted Cherry Tomato Lentil Salad

It’s time for the best cherry tomato lentil salad ever. One with a delicious array of simple flavors. Summer flavors.

Crispy Chickpea Tomato Salad

Chickpea tomato salad. Simply in love with it. Fresh summer tomatoes, crisp cumin-coated chickpeas, sweet red onion, and parsley, tossed with just the right amount of olive oil and sunshiny lemon juice has the makings of becoming my absolute favourite summer salad! The best part about it is that you can make this recipe in […]

Blackberry & Fig Pistachio Oat Crumble (V + GF)

This blackberry and fig pistachio oat crumble is about as simple and basic as they come, and though it’s vegan and gluten-free it’s just as delicious as you can expect any summer crisp or crumble to be. Prepared with coconut oil, it’s completely dairy-free. And thanks to pistachios, almond meal, and gluten-free oats, it’s also […]

Blueberry Tart with Honeyed Yogurt (GF)

Indulge yourself. Yes, you can. This gorgeous blueberry tart let’s you enjoy something seemly wicked that’s surprisingly not.

This nutty tasting tart crust is […]

Recipe for Dark Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins (GF) with Coconut, Brown Rice, and Buckwheat Flour - Elle Republic

Dark Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins (GF)

Chocolate chip banana muffins, berry-packed yogurt muffins and classic blueberry muffins are all things that bring me back to my early 20s when I literally lived on muffins. Totally addicted, I ate them almost every day. Monday to Friday that is. Okay, maybe it wasn’t just because I had a thing for muffins… it was, […]

Vegetarian Tunisian Stew with Millet and Chickpeas

Tunisian Stew (Vegetarian + GF)

When I think of Tunisian food like this Tunisian stew, I am automatically brought to thoughts of cumin, turmeric, coriander and paprika in sauces brimming with garlic, chilies and tomato all served over a tasty plate of couscous. Truth is, I’ve never been to Tunisia. The closest place to it was Tanger after a short […]

Gluten-Free Chocolate Zucchini Bread

Chocolate Zucchini Bread (Gluten-Free)

Zucchini bread is one of those things I’ve never understood. Carrot cake on the other hand, I can wrap my head around. Mind you, I have some very overly sweet childhood memories of carrot cake slathered in a very thick layer of icing. In contrast, zucchini bread sounds “healthy”. And yes, it is. But I’m […]

gluten-free roasted almond butter bread with banana, cacao nibs and unsweetened flaked coconut

Roasted Almond Butter Bread (Gluten-Free)

My new favorite bread. A grain-free gluten-free roasted almond butter bread with banana, cacao nibs and unsweetened flaked coconut. First of all, what I think makes it so special is the homemade roasted almond butter. Which by the way, is super easy to make yourself. Not only is homemade almond butter cheaper than the store-bought […]

Lamb Paella with Fennel, Artichokes and Tomato and brown rice

Lamb Paella with Fennel, Artichokes and Tomato

It’s easy to be inspired by Yotam Ottolenghi. And this lamb paella recipe was definitely inspired by his cookbook Plenty which is a compilation of Ottolenghi’s recipes from the Guardian. Admittedly, this is a loose adaptation of his multi vegetable paella. Yes, this is far from being vegetarian. Ottolenghi himself is not vegetarian, but this […]

Buckwheat with Chestnuts, Lemon and Parsley

Buckwheat with Chestnuts, Lemon and Parsley

Some say buckwheat is an acquired taste. But actually once you’ve acquired it, it’s truly yours. As one belonging to the team in defense of all buckwheat’s goodness, I am always looking for ways of experimenting with this gluten-free grain in other ways than a standard morning porridge or overnight oats. And here a new […]
