Radish greens dip/hummus

You are never going wrong with vegetables. When chickpeas or beans, so often used in dips/hummus are the easiest way to get a delicious spread, they are not always so easy to digest for everyone. Especially when mixed with different groups of food (other carbs or animal protein for instance). So better to get back…

Vegan pumpkin snickers

Snickers don’t need an introduction, right? We make them so often and I have changed so many filling ingredients by now. The challenge started because my girls don’t want to eat nuts. They would say that they don’t love them even if they always add them to the granola they use to make. So I…
