30 g couscous

2 spring onions or scallions, trimmed and very thinly sliced
400 g (around 4-5 bunches) flat-leaved parsley, most of the stalks discarded, leaves washed and dried
5 g lemon balm leaves (no stems), washed and dried
15 g cilantro, most of the stalks discarded, washed and dried
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground allspice
1/4 teaspoon finely ground black pepper

Beetroot carpaccio

Amazing combination.

For the dressing(Ingredients):

25 g shelled hazelnuts
2 1/2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
1 teaspoon mustard
3 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons hazelnut oil
2 teaspoons honey
1 tablespoon snipped chives

For the salad(Ingredients):

5-6 small cooked, peeled beetroot
1 tablespoon olive oil
6 slices of prosciutto crude, each cut in 3 strips
3 heads chicory, mix of red and green, leaves seperated
60 g Parmesan shavings
balsamic vinegar, for drizzling



had no eggs, tried using blueberry and apple puree instead. Worked fine, didn't taste differently, but brownies will be of a wetter consistency.....feels like molten chocolate on the tongue.

I use strong coffee instead of instant coffee powder and add a little bit more flour.


170 g sticks butter
170 g semi sweet chocolate
2 Tablespoons cocoa powder
50-60 ml strong coffee
3 eggs
225 g sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
3/4 teaspoon salt
140 -150 g flour

bake at 160°C


Tortilla Soup


2 tablespoons oil
1 can diced tomatoes
1 yellow onion, diced
2 jalapeño peppers, chopped (less if you don't like it spicy)
2 bell peppers, red, chopped, optional: yellow
2 cloves garlic, minced
3 tablespoons ground cumin
950 ml chicken broth


2 teaspoons paprika
2 teaspoons garlic salt
2 tablespoons chili powder
1 avocado, diced
120 g shredded cheddar cheese
Fresh cilantro, chopped
2 flour tortillas
Lime wedges


Heat the oil in a large pot over medium-high heat.
Cook garlic, onion and cumin for a few minutes, until the onions are translucent.
Add bell peppers, cook until tender — 2 to 4 minutes, stirring frequently.
Stir in broth, tomatoes and jalapeños.
Bring to a boil, then reduce heat, cover and simmer for 20 to 30 minutes, stirring periodically.
Cut tortillas into 2-inch wide strips, grill for a few minutes until toasted.
Serve the soup in bowls and top with condiments.
