Quinoa-with-Superfood-Pesto-2

I especially love the use of herbs in Italian cuisine, probably the most used one being basil – one of my favorite herbs actually. Basil is wonderful, lovely and fragrant.

Quinoa Tabouleh

Quinoa-Taboule-3

Tabouleh is one of my all-time favorite foods! When we still lived in Zurich, we would go from time to time with a group of friends to one of our favorite restaurants, Le Cèdre (always in groups, because mezze is more fun to eat in groups as you can share more different kinds!) – and they would serve…

Sweet Potato “Fries” with Basil-Yogurt Dip

Sweet-potato-fries-from-top

As I made a Sweet Potato Puree a few days back with the same ingredients (Sweet potatoes & Rosemary: because both are immunity boosting!)
