Can you really bake a delicious, sweet pie with chickpeas, sweet potato and pumpkin seeds? Yeah! And can you really replace eggs with chickpea flour? Yes! Gosh, I am (and you are) a lucky bird, because that’s what you get the recipe for today. An unusual and festive pie made with good stuff doing pretty good for you during Christmas.
I was thinking about salads the other day, no that’s not true, I have been thinking about salads for days now. I have been trying to figure out what it REALLY is that makes a salad taste so good. I came up with 2 things. The toppings and the dressings is what makes a salad. And summer means salad so… Today I’m all into toppings. Next time it’s all about dressings. Please call me a nerd if you like. Today I give you five vegan salad toppings that makes your heart sing!
This post is actually just a anthem to the good mayonnaise, this time an aioli of or should I just call it Aquafaba garlic mayonnaise? Aquafaba is a fancy word for something so not sexy, chickpea water from a can of chickpeas. So I just stay with the word aquafaba because what you can do with it is sooo sexy! A vegan mayonnaise that taste just like mayonnaise, that behaves just like a real mayonnaise and works with anything, just like a real mayonnaise.
I really like beans and lentils! And so does the Dutch author Joke Boon. She even wrote a complete book about al different kinds of beans and lentils, Bonen! (in english Beans!). She also thought of the magnificent chickpea cake that you get as a recipe of in this post. Oh do try it!
