Ohh I can’t get enough of this!! ❤ These vegan Spicy Sriracha Cauliflower ‘Wings’ are to die for, I promise! I was never a big fan of chicken wings, but sure enough I could eat this version everyday 😉
Extremely easy and quick to prepare, serve it as an appetizer, or make it a snack while binging on the latest season of your favorite show on Netflix (#guilty!).

Valentine’s Day ❤ is only few days away, and if you are anything like me you are probably hoping nobody will show up with a box of “absurdly processed-full of chemicals-unhealthy” chocolate 😉
Don’t get me wrong, I LOOOVE sweets, but the ‘real’ thing, which is hardly what comes in a heart shaped box. Well, I’m giving you this incredible recipe, so you can scratch that hitch for a sweet treat without the guilty feeling.
Bananas, walnuts, chocolate chips and oats. Yes, 4 ingredients only! You’ll love them! Your other half will love them…. And your kids too 😉
Rich in fiber, gluten free, processed sugar free, low fat…and very nutritious. Enjoy!! ❤ Continue reading “Nicole’s BANANA-CHOCOLATE CHIP-OAT COOKIES”
This is an incredible dessert, worth of a patisserie! Perfect to be enjoyed with a cup of tea, mid-afternoon. The nature of coconut flour allows the cake to stay moist. Most of the sweetness comes from the fruit you decide to use. My best friend’ grandma has this amazing grape-vine in her backyard, and I LOVE to take advantage of those sweet, delicious fruit! I really like the crunchiness of the seeds once they are cooked, but if you don’t particularly enjoy that you can substitute grapes with your berries of choice.
It also freezes extremely well: to enjoy it just place it in the microwave for a minute and it’ll taste like fresh out the oven! (TIP: before storing it make sure you slice and individually wrap in plastic).
Let me know what you think about it!

The clock is ticking: a couple of days until Thanksgiving, and you are trying to get ready to select and prepare the perfect meal for your family and guests. Turkey is the “big boy” on the table, but as much of an effort you can put into cooking it to perfection, not everybody will eat it, for a reason or another. Actually, you will most likely end up with plenty leftover: I know, been there – done that! And I’m sure you did too: “Turkey sandwich” for a week! 😉
That’s why I’m offering you this appetizing option to your traditional turkey. YES YES YES, there’s no meat involved, but I assure you the texture is so ‘meaty’, you won’t hear any complain from meat lovers! Besides being very tasty (and obviously a healthy option, hehe), it’s also light so you’ll still have room for all the other delicious food you will be serving!

This earthy soup reminds me of winters in Italy 🙂 Rich of flavor as well as fibers, vitamins and minerals. For this recipe I used beet greens, as I buy beets often and I like to use as much as I can of my food, discarding the least possible. You can definitely use the leafy greens of your choice: kale, spinach, collard, even cabbage. Enjoy! Continue reading “Nicole’s EARTHY WHITE BEANS & BEET GREENS SOUP”

I will try to catch up and post some healthy & easy ones during the next few days. Mostly little twitches to your traditional dishes, to keep it classic, tasty, AND healthy 🙂
First on the list: Cranberry Orange Chutney. Let’s not give into the canned cranberry sauce! Not only it is loaded with sugar, but also preservatives. It’s so easy to make your own with a handful of ingredients and only takes few minutes. Continue reading “Nicole’s FRESH CRANBERRY ORANGE CHUTNEY”
