Rosquilletes from València

After two weeks in Cargese, Corsica I am back to the Nederlands. This is a typical snack in València made of flour, water, a pinch of salt and some  seeds

Courgette with pasta and aubergine snack

A lovely Sunday lunch …

First we start with a nice baked bread with some oregano on top and eat it with roasted aubergine and red pepper.

And later, a lovely whole grain pasta with courgette and champiognon tomato sauce.

Hummus and Veggies, lovely snack :-)

That might be the last post that I do from the lovely city of Lisbon. I had a great time here although the weather was too hot to my taste. However, this weather helps to have great veggies all year round. Yesterday was a hot day and we just felt to eat some nice veggies with a dipping sauce. You can use this recipe as party snack, as a starter in a meal or as you wish, but try it, it is worth it.


  • For the hummus:

- chickpeas (in a can or cook them in advance)

- garlic

- 1 green chili

- cumin powder

- coriander powder

- olive oil, salt and pepper to taste

  • Veggies to dip:

- 3 carrots

- celery

- 1 green and red pepper

- 2 tomatoes

- some broccoli


  • Hummus: with a blender, mix all the ingredients in a bowl. Add some water if the paste is to thick and the condiments as you like.

With the veggies sliced, place them on the plate and …. start to dip in!

Indian dinner

You can see from top to bottom: Aloo gobi, potato bhaji and Missi roti (gram flour roti). As a drink we had some mango lassi. A gorgeous dinner with a lot of turmeric.
