I love London, but often it is so chaotic that I would like to be on the top of a snowy mountain, spending the weekend sipping an herbal tea in front of a warm fireplace.
Unfortunately, we cannot always be where we would stay. Therefore, it seems that today the best choice is to prepare tempting potato and chickpeas pies for lunch, which cannot be compared to a relaxing weekend, but they still make my day more enjoyable.
It is since this morning that I have been watching the rays of the sun from my window. Nevertheless, today, instead of breathing some fresh air outside, I will be happy to prepare a wonderful vegan spreadable cheese
I cannot stand Mondays, my friends know it, but today’s recipe has certainly made my day and, as the cheese is in the fridge to rest, I imagine it spread on a crispy slice of bread.
It is a very simple dish, which can be prepared in five minutes and with very few ingredients.
You just need to prepare a creamy base of minced cashews, with the addition of flakes of yeast, and my beloved Southern Italian dried tomatoes.
Let’s get lost in the goodness and creaminess of this cheese and forget, for a moment, the stress of everyday life!
Baba Ganoush Recipe
At least twice a week, I feel the need to escape from the culinary tradition and prepare new special dishes, inspired from far even exotic countries. I tried this sauce years ago at a friend’s house and it was love at first sight. So I promised myself, I absolutely had to try preparing it in my kitchen. I’m talking about an alternative version of Baba Ganoush, also called eggplant caviar, which is a Middle Eastern sauce mainly prepared from vegetable pulp from which it takes its name.
Aubergine is a vegetable full of benefits: it’s good for brain, it is high in fibers, it has depurative properties and it is ideal to prevent bad cholesterol. This sauce is perfect as an appetizer or side dish…. So, let your taste buds enjoy this delicious irresistible sauce!
