Lupini Bean Salad // Insalata di lupini

Wednesday, August 16, 2017



I've always been fascinated with lupini because of their yellow colour. Then one day, about 5 years ago, I decided to try them and their taste ruined them for me. They were disgusting. Now I don't know if that's normal with store-bought lupini or if my tastes have changed over the years - I bet it's the latter though -, but I do know what I love them. And I also love preparing them myself.

It's been months since I first tried tempeh and now it's my new obsession. It tastes so good, I don't even know if I'm ever going to eat tofu again. Why even bother, right?

Raw Peach and Coconut Mini Cake // Mini torta crudista alla pesca e cocco

I know that I said I don't believe in desserts made almost entirely of fats - even if those fats are the healthy ones - and yet here I am with a dessert made almost entirely of fats. To my defence, I wanted to have something sweet, fresh and raw for breakfast and this was the easiest way to get what I wanted.

Buckwheat Penne with Zucchini and Zucchini Blossoms // Penne di grano saraceno con zucchina e fiori di zucca

Buckwheat is one of those grains I love so much I would eat every day. So you can imagine my joy when I saw on the supermarket's shelf buckwheat pasta made of, guess what, buckwheat! I know it sounds pretty obvious, but believe me when I tell you that finding 100% buckwheat pasta where I live is a real struggle since there always are other flours such as corn and rice.
