Celery Gratin – Vegan Recipes

Celery Gratin – Vegan Recipes

Taste, lightness and simplicity are the main features you look for in a summer dish. We often lose time preparing difficult recipes and in the selection of a great number of ingredients, without thinking that the solution is just in our fridge, within other ingredients that never lack in the kitchen, but are always underestimated: celery, for instance.

You certainly crunched it during a snack, or you have used it as a seasoning, or maybe you have added it to salads and drinks, but have you ever thought of using it for preparing a very delicate and easy main course?

This vegetable is rich in fiber and vitamin C, it strengthens the immune system, it lowers cholesterol and improves digestion. Moreover it is low in calories and increases the feeling of fullness.

Easy Vegan Pad Thai

Easy Vegan Pad Thai

One of the great powers of cooking is to give people the opportunity to discover different cultures and languages through food. I love finding out different flavours, comparing the tastes of our traditions with those of the other, using new spices every day and, above all, trying to imitate special dishes. For example, I love Thai food, since it offers various vegan options and I often enjoy it in many restaurants in London.

Since many years, I have been celebrating my birthday at Thai restaurant. To celebrate these special occasions, I went at “Coach and Horses” in Stoke Newington, which offers a wonderful atmosphere in the light of candles and a great menu with vegan options.

Today’s recipe is Pad Thai: a very common dish in Thailand with rice or noodles sautéed with eggs, fish, but also with vegetables or tofu. Obviously, I will prepare the vegan version that is also incredibly delicious! Read More

Here you can admire very beautiful homes, the prestigious Victorian architecture, restaurants and luxury shops: places that many of us should only admire, but that are undoubtedly part of the beauty and peculiarity of this city.

Today I reached Holland Park by bus, which is an area and park in this exclusive district: here there are hectares of greenery, lakes, trees, animals and a Zen Garden (Kyoto Gardens), where it is pleasant to take a lunch break and enjoy some relax.

For this occasion, I prepared a delicious Lebanese salad, full of tomatoes, cucumbers, red onion, lettuce and radishes that I really love. These incredible vegetables give a feeling of fullness, are rich in depurative properties, contain few calories and are full of vitamins. Read More
