Low fat vegan eggplant & broccoli curry

What would be a lazy Sunday without making a comforting recipe for lunch as the weather realized it made a mistake and that it was time to bring the rain back in Paris ? That’s the kind of day when you need a hot, delicious, yet simple recipe to make in order to eat it in front of your favorite TV show, all cozied up into a fluffy blanket. How does that sound to you ?

Making homemade vegan falafels

After a few days away for the holidays (more on that in a later post), I have decided to share with you my recipe to make falafels ! I love falafels : they are so easy to make, and so delicious.

You can buy them (usually they are in the “bio” or “organic” section of supermarkets) but I find them quite expensive for not many falafels. In addition, there often are many additives and preservatives added in those. So as I love cooking everything from scratch, I thought it would be fun to try to make them myself, and I was delighted with the result.

The strong point of my recipe is that you do not even need any expensive cooking utensils ! Your handstand a fork will be enough.

And there, I found some polenta. I used to pass by it without really considering buying it because I had no idea how to cook it. but I thought that buying it would actually force me to google some recipe ideas… And so I did.
