• Cuban rice

    What a classic.

    Here with hard-boiled eggs instead of fried. The original recipe is with fried eggs but this is another version that still tastes incredible. And don’t forget to serve the rice in a mold for an extra touch! 

    Some don’t like fried bananas but for those who do this gives it a nice sweet touch.

  • Green beans and walnuts with lemon vinaigrette

    Green beans, french beans, string beans… whatever you want to call them, are a true delight.

    I will always remember my mother and aunt together, peeling beans in my grandparents  house in the countryside. Ever since then the smell alone will bring me back to those days.

    This particular version is French  with crispy beans and Dijon mustard vinaigrette. The best part about this recipe is the toasted walnuts and the lemon skin- a delicate touch which results in a powerful but very balanced flavor.

    5. Combine the beans, carrot, walnuts and lemon peel in a bowl.

  • Mushroom Paella

    This dish is perfect for entertaining and very easy to make. All you need is a grill and a paella pan.

    If you invite a lot of people the barbecue is a great option and also super fun. All you have to do is make a good  broth  and find some high quality rice. If done correctly, the rice will  have a crunchy texture and an intense flavour that is also perfectly sweet.

    Finally, it is true that white right has a high glycemic index. But don’t make yourself crazy, in moderation and with an accompanying salad that contains good fat, fibre as well as the protein from the mushrooms will help lower a meal’s glycemic index.

  • Pisto Shakshuka

    The perfect fusion of dishes and cultures!

    On the one hand we have the Spanish pisto and on the other the shakshuka of the Middle East (in Arabic “mix”). In each place it is made in a very distinct way.

    You can even consider Mexico’s huevos rancheros a version of pisto/shashuka or ratatouille from France. Exactly where this dish originates from is not clear. Some historians say that it spread to Spain and the Middle East from Ottoman Turkey, while others think it first came from Morocco.

    As far as the recipe goes, it is made with poached vegetables, but unlike the traditional Spanish version we will using less oil thus making it a bit lighter. The caramelized tomato sauce and spices will enhance the flavour of the vegetables that together with the eggs will provide proteinand a texture that is great for dipping!

    It is the perfect dish to share and eat directly from the pan or at the table with family and friends. It Is also loaded with vitamin C, thanks to the tomato and parsley sauce, as well as B12!

    • 2 Tbsp of olive oil
    • 1 large onion
    • 1 large pepper
    • 1 zucchini or eggplant
    • 1 clove of garlic
    • 4 ripe tomatoes (or canned)
    • 3 organic eggs
    • 1/2 Tbsp ground cumin
    • 1 Tbsp of paprika
    • pinch of saffron
    • 1 tsp of cayenne pepper
    • 1 bay leaf
    • bunch of parsley
    • thyme
    • salt and pepper


    A note about cooking the eggs- You can finish this dish (the part with the eggs) in the oven or on the stovetop. On alternative is to cook the eggs by putting the whole pan in the oven, if you have an oven safe pan. However, if you do not,  you can put a lid on the pan and the steam will cook the eggs as well.

    1. chop all the  vegetables and herbs (medium size cubes)
    2. if you plan to use the oven, preheat it to 200º
    3. put oil in a pan and sauté the onion and pepper over medium-high heat. Add a few drops of water from time to time so it does not burn. But be careful not to put too much water as we want the vegetables a little bit brown.
    4. add the zucchini and garlic and continue poaching with the water if necessary (remember that we want to flavor the vegetables but without burning them, only a light toast)
    5. remove the pan from the heat and add the spices, parsley and bay leaf. Mix for 1 minute
    6. add the tomatoes and a little water (if they are from a bottle, it is not necessary because they contain water)
    7. Cook until the vegetables are well done but textured
    8. add the eggs and cook for a couple of minutes until the white is cooked
    9. If the oven is used, finish the dish until the yolk is cooked, otherwise put the lid on the pan and finish cooking the eggs with the steam.
    10. garnish with some parsley


    If you do not have all the spices or herbs use the ones you have (to taste). If you want to give it more flavor, toss cumin seeds together with saffron threads (in aluminum foil) in a pan and crush with a mortar

  • Hummus, mutabal and muhammara

    Many of you are probably already familiar with hummus, that tasty dip based on wonderful and nutritious chickpeas. It is easy and very fast to make, and you can give it a personal touch by adding or changing a few key ingredients.

    Perhaps you are not familiar with Mutabal and Muhammara.

    The first one is a cream of aubergines with a smoky taste and a spectacular honey-like texture. One of my favourites. It is also known as Baba Ganush.

    Muhammara is a Syrian cream based on pepper and walnuts with a texture between creamy and crispy. It has a sweet taste with a touch of acid thanks to pomegranate molasses– something very typical in Middle Eastern cooking.

    Be sure to enjoy the process and treatment of these wonderful ingredients, which in addition to delicious, are super nutritious.

    These three dips are full of proteins, vitamins C and type B, fibre… and minerals like zinc, magnesium, phosphorus as well.

    They can also be considered super foods as they decrease cholesterol, triglycerides, protect the immune system, promote cardiovascular health and prevent some types of cancer such as colon.

    • Cuisine: Middle East


    For the hummus:

    • 400 gr cooked chickpeas
    • 2 Tablespoons of tahini
    • 1 small garlic clove *
    • juice of 1 lemon
    • 2 Tbsp of olive oil
    • 1 teaspoon of salt
    • olive oil and paprika for garnish

    For the moutabal:

    • 2 medium size aubergines
    • 1 small garlic clove *
    • 2 Tbsp tahini
    • 1/2 lemon juice
    • 1/2 tsp of salt
    • olive oil and pomegranate seeds for garnish

    For the Muhammara:

    • 3 large red peppers
    • 2 Tbsp whole grain breadcrumbs
    • 1 cup of nuts
    • 1 Tbsp pomegranate molasses *
    • 1 Tbsp lemon
    • 1 small garlic *
    • 1/2 teaspoon of chilli powder (optional)
    • 1 Tbsp olive oil
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt
    • olive oil to serve


    For the hummus:

    1. If chickpeas are used, strain them and reserve some of the liquid
    2. With a blender or food processor blend all the ingredients until you get a smooth texture
    3. If the mixture is too dense add a little reserved liquid of the chickpeas or water
    4. You can play with adding more garlic, lemon or tahini until you get the desired flavour
    5. Finish garnishing with oil and paprika

    For the mutabal:

    1. The best version would be to cook the aubergines directly in the flame or barbecue to give the smoked flavour characteristic of this dish. But they can also be baked at 200º by pinching the aubergines with a fork and roasting them for 30-45 minutes until they are very soft
    2. Let the roasted aubergines cool
    3. In a mortar crush the garlic with the salt, add the tahini and lemon and mix well
    4. Remove the meat from the aubergines and chop well
    5. In a bowl put the aubergines and mix with the garlic, tahini, lemon and salt
    6. Mix everything well until you get a smooth texture
    7. Finish garnishing with pomegranate seeds and oil

    For the muhammara:

    1. Preheat the oven to 200º
    2. Cut the peppers in half and remove the seeds.
    3. Put them in the oven for around 30 mint or until they are cooked
    4. Put the peppers in a bowl and cover them with cling film.
    5. When the peppers are cold and they have released the liquid remove the skin and reserve the liquid
    6. Put all the ingredients in a food processor and shred until you get a smooth mixture
    7. Add the liquid of the peppers or more bread to adjust the desired thickness
    8. Garnish with oil and nuts


    The pomegranate molasses, is a very characteristic ingredient of the Middle East. Basically, it is a reduction of pomegranate juice and you can buy it already made. The best is 100% pomegranate, some brands add sugar.

    If you do not like raw garlic you can roast garlic and you will get a sweet taste but with very good garlic touches. To roast it, put two heads of garlic in the oven at 200º for 30 minutes or until you see that they are soft. To remove the meat,  cut off  of the end of the garlic and press until all the meat comes out.

    Another option for the hummus and mutabai is to add a pinch of cumin, sesame oil or even change legume and use beans, peas etc.

  • Black beans, quinoa with Mexican flavours

     You’ll be surprised how fast and easy it is to prepare this dish. And it will take you straight to Mexico! Especially if you make it on the spicy side.

    I love the combination of beans, quinoa and corn. The latter gives it a sweetness that combines very well with the pungent and acidic lime.

    A really powerful dish, not only for its flavour but all its nutrition. Rich in protein, thanks to the beans and quinoa and filled with vitamin C from the tomato, cilantro and lime. And of course, the avocado is also charged with vitamins.

    The spices in this dish are key, so feel free to ramp up the cumin and pepper. You’ll see how it combines everything to perfection.

    3. Simmer for 15 min or until the quinoa is cooked
    4. Garnish with avocado and cilantro


    If you don´t like spicy food don´t add the jalapeño pepper and chilli powder.

    You will get a more liquid soup texture by adding more stock or water.

  • Super Chocolate Fudge

    Not all sweets have to be bad!

    This fudge, for instance, is full of antioxidants and vitamins. True, the ingredients are a little expensive and the recipe contains some sugar and fat (albeit good fat) but everyone deserves a little indulgence once in a while!

    This fudge is nothing like the typical sweets with empty nutrients. In this recipe you will take advantage of all the properties of cocoa which is one of the products with the highest number of antioxidants- over 300 in fact! You can also add ingredients such as spirulina, Maca, or Baobab… which do not add flavor but many good properties.

    Most importantly, the taste is incredibly good! Sweet, crisp and with soft notes of walnut, thanks to the hemp seeds, of which I am very much a fan. You will see how it can surpass any chocolate you have tasted.

    And as with all sweets, moderation is key!

  • Macaroni with cauliflower sauce, mushrooms and spinach

    Who doesn’t like pasta?

    Here is an incredible pasta recipe with a sauce that will be sure to impress. And the best of all it is healthy! Yes, it has fat, but the good kind of fat.

    It is a recipe full of flavour and packed with nutrients thanks to cashews, cauliflower, mushrooms, spinach and garlic.

    First, you must choose a good type of pasta that does not contain refined flour but that still has a good texture. In my opinion brown rice pasta is the best. That said, quinoa and varieties of flours such as lentils and chickpeas are also delicious but a little more expensive than ordinary pasta.

    The final nutritional touch to the dish is white miso, a fermented soy, with a sweet and mellow flavour that I recommend you always have in the fridge. It doesn’t go bad and it contributes probiotic to your dishes. You’ll be amazed by its taste. It is a little harder to find than the traditional miso but you can find it in any Asian store.

    But one thing! Remember to never boil the miso or the beneficial bacteria will die.

    4. In a pan, sauté onion and garlic for 2 minutes
    5. Add the kale or spinach, mushrooms and stir for 1 more minute
    6. Add the cauliflower sauce and mix for a few minutes on a low heat so that the ingredients are mixed together
    7. Add the cooked pasta and serve hot


    For the sauce it’s worth doing more, hold a few days in the fridge and you can freeze it.

    If you forget to soak the cashews boil them in water for about 10 mint  😉

  • Eggplant stuffed with yogurt and mustard sauce

    Eggplants! or aubergines! I love them!.

    They are very versatile and can be done in a thousand ways. This recipe has spices that give it a very Indian touch.

    The flavours are very intense as the eggplant, olives and capers explode when combined with spices, but at the same time, the recipe has a sweet finishing touch. If you like chili, add a touch more red pepper .

    The yogurt sauce and mustard give it a creamy texture and also bring acidity, which makes this recipe a round dish, in addition to a ton of good nutrients.

  • Papaya Salad

    I love this recipe. If you just read the ingredients it doesn’t sound right- green papaya, garlic, hot peppers…. But Thai people know how to combine these flavours to perfection. The key to Thai food is the perfect mix of these 5 flavours: sweet, pungent, sour, bitter and salty.

    This recipe is a perfect example, as well as one of the most characteristic Thai recipes. The key  is to find a green papaya. Normally we eat it very ripe, or orange,  because otherwise they are bitter. But this bitterness is precisely what is called for in this recipe.

    That said, if you can’t find a green papaya, try using one that is at least mostly ripe, or a little orange at the ends. This recipe is super easy and you will be surprised by the contrasts of flavours in this dish.

  • Sweet potato with quinoa and walnut dressing

    For this sweet potato recipe we are exploring flavours of the Middle East. Unlike its cousin the potato, the texture of the sweet potato is very soft. It also has a low glycemic index, despite a sweeter taste,  which means less sugar for the body.

    Sweet potatoes also come in many colours. The purple, for instance, is delicious, and for me the silkiest. It also works beautifully with the walnut dressing which gives it a powerful punch.

    5. Boil the quinoa with the ground cumin 12 mint in about 400 ml of water (if there is plenty of water strain)
    6. For the walnut dressing, grind all the ingredients of the dressing until it has a fine texture, but add more oil or water if needed.

  • Kale Salad with Spirulina Tahini

    Kale. It’s kind of hard and also bitter. A lot of people don’t know how to use it. But have you tried massaging it with your hands? With this technique it becomes tender and very versatile.

    Spirulina is a seaweed with a lot of minerals and like most algae has a very characteristic flavour. You can also substitute with chlorella if you prefer.

    And if you aren´t familiar with tahini, it is Middle Eastern sesame seed based paste that works incredibly well with spirulina, among other things, and is super addictive!

  • Tofu Scramble

    Perfect breakfast or brunch with potent flavour thanks to turmeric, tamari and nutritional yeast.

    In case you don’t know what nutritional yeast is, they are cheese-like flavoured flakes that melts in any liquid and are filled with minerals and vitamins.

    A formidable rival to scrambled eggs, the tofu absorbs the surrounding flavours very well and gives a texture that, together with the crispy kale, is very balanced.


    Tofu Scramble

    • Prep Time: 10 min
    • Cook Time: 15 min
    • Total Time: 25 min
    • Yield: 2
    • Category: Easy
    • Cuisine: Modern


    • 2 tablespoons olive oil
    • 1/4 onion, finely cut
    • 2 cloves of garlic
    • 4 kale leaves, stalk removed
    • few slices of avocado
    • 1 cup (250 gr) firm tofu

    For tofu marinating:

    • 2-3 tablespoons almond milk (or any milk you like)
    • 2 tablespoons nutritional yeast
    • 1 tablespoon tamari or soy sauce (best if low sodium)
    • 1 tablespoon mustard (Dijon is best)
    • 1/2 teaspoon of turmeric
    • 1/4 teaspoon of ground cayenne
    • pinch  of salt


    1. Start by removing the excess water from tofu by cutting it into slices about 3 cm thick. Then, with a rag or kitchen paper squeeze and remove the excess water. This will help absorb the flavors better.
    2. In a bowl mix the ingredients to marinate the tofu: almond “milk”, nutritional yeast, tamari, mustard, turmeric, cayenne and salt. Cut the tofu into small squares and crumble with your fingers (they should be “imperfectly shaped”) and add to the mixture.
    3. In a frying pan heat the oil using medium heat, fry the garlic and onion for 5 minutes and then add the kale and cook for 1 more minute.
    4. Finally, add the marinated tofu and cook 4-5 mint.
    5. I like to  serve with a few slices of avocado, a little cayenne and a dash of salt.

  • Fast chickpeas Stew

    This stew is relatively easy to make and very tasty. The key is the broth and some good, tender chickpeas.  If you buy pre-cooked chickpeas make sure they are a quality brand.

    This dish can also be made with a boiled egg if you want to give it more consistency. Finally, I cook the spinach right at the end so it doesn’t loose consistency, but you can also make it separately and add at the end if you prefer.

  • White beans with mushrooms and truffles

    These beans combined with mushrooms and truffles are to die for. This stew is equally good for a Friday celebration as it is a rainy Sunday. The key, as in all the stews, is a good broth and in this case, good legumes.

    The kombu algae, besides providing a ton of nutrients, makes the legumes more digestible. Also, the legumes actually taste better after a couple days, if you end up with leftovers!

    Finally, it is true that truffle can be expensive but even more important than the truffle itself is a good truffle oil.


    White beans with mushrooms and truffles

    • Prep Time: 15 min
    • Cook Time: 1 hour
    • Total Time: 1 hour 15 min
    • Yield: 3
    • Category: Easy
    • Cuisine: Mediterranean


    • 1 litre water ( more if need it)
    • 4 cups beans (250 grams)
    • 1 carrot
    • ½ italian green pepper
    • 1 small Onion
    • 2 cloves of garlic
    • truffle, to taste according to quality
    • 1 tomato
    • bay Leaf
    • 1 teaspoon paprika (sweet or spicy)
    • Truffle oil (or olive)
    • Algae Kombu (optional)
    • Salt and pepper

    For mushrooms:

    • 2 cups 200 grams
    • 1/2 chopped onion very very fine
    • Olive oil
    • Tablespoon unrefined flour
    • (For gluten free corn, buckwheat…)
    • 2 tablespoons brandy
    • A little bit of broth from the beans
    • Salt


    1. Soak the beans the night before with the seaweed Kombu. (It will soften the beans, making them easier to digest. The Kombu will add vitamins and minerals)
    2. The next day add the water, the bay leaf, a whole garlic, one peeled carrot, an onion in two halves, green pepper, tomato, a pinch of paprika and a bit of oil
    3. Cover the pot and cook over heat for 1 hour or until beans are soft.
    4. A trick to make the beans more tender is to “scare” them. This means when it starts to boil, pour a little bit of cold water to break the cooking. This can be done a couple of times.

    For mushrooms:

    1. Sauté finely chopped onion and boletus with truffle oil (use truffle oil if you want a more intense flavour if not olive oil)
    2. Add flour
    3. Pour some broth from the stew and the brandy, add a pinch of salt and stir for 1 mint
    4. Remove the vegetables from the bean pot and add the mushrooms.
    5. Slice the truffle and boil all together for 5 min.
    6. Add a few drops of truffle oil when serving.

  • Chia Pudding with cardamom cream

    Chia pudding is an amazingly tasty and creamy breakfast (or dessert!). It is also nutrient rich, containing things like omega 3, calcium, fibre and proteins. And cocoa… another torpedo in terms of properties, is a great way to get a solid dose of antioxidants.

    The chia seed is a funny thing.  When it comes in contact with liquid it inflates and has a gelatinous touch. For many it is strange at first but quickly proves addictive.

    The chia pudding alone is lovely but if you want to take it to the next level, the cardamom cream is a great way to add additional texture and a touch of natural sweetness. The flavour is great and even a bit exotic.

    Finally, you can top the pudding with whatever you fancy. I use gojis and bee pollen, but cinnamon or walnuts also combine perfectly with chia.


    Chia Pudding with cardamom cream

    • Total Time: 20 min
    • Yield: 3
    • Category: Easy
    • Cuisine: Modern


    For the pudding:

    •  1/4 Cup chia Seeds
    • 1 cup vegetable milk
    • 1 tablespoon sweetener (agave, maple syrup, coconut, etc…)
    • 1 banana
    • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract (optional)
    • 1 teaspoon cocoa
    • Pinch of salt
    • Goji berries for garnish (optional)
    • Pollen for garnish (optional)

    For cardamom Cream:

    • 6 tablespoons soaked cashews for 2 hours (If you are in a hurry just boil them with water for 5 min ).
    • 5 cardamom seeds
    • 2 tablespoons sweetener (agave, maple syrup, coconut…)
    • 2 tablespoons of water
    • 1/8 teaspoon powdered cinnamon
    •  1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract


    Chia Pudding

    1. The night before (or half an hour before) grind milk, banana, sweetener, cocoa, vanilla and salt, in a food processor or blender vegetable.
    2. Then add the chia seeds which will absorb the liquid and become dense. NOTE– It is important to do in this order as to not crush the chia seeds- we want them whole to absorb the liquid.

    Cardamom Cream

    1. Crush the cardamom seeds with a pestle and mortar, removing the husks
    2. In a food processor, add the remainder of the ingredients and mix until creamy.
    3. Drizzle on top of the chia pudding.
