I already posted a picture of this pesto yesterday on my Facebook, because I was so happy the way this pesto turned out.
I always thought the normal basil – pinenuts combination would be my go to recipe – even though I have tried some other versions like the kale – walnut version – but this one is so good, I feel like I will make this numerous times this summer.
This pesto is creamy, in a way you could never imagine it’s vegan. And the combination of the mint, lemon and peas is just the best.
Since 2 weeks the webshop is finally online. Starting a business – as small as it may be – gave me a lot of sleepless nights. Deciding about the products I wanted to sell, the packaging, pricing,… all new for me and actually quite terrifying.
But, it was proved again I have really good friends, who supported me, encouraged me and helped me along the way.
So big thank you to all of you and of course all the people who bought something in the last few weeks.
At the moment I have this idea to add something to the shop at least every month, a new product or a new taste.
So for this first addition to the shop we have: a raw coconut bar with cranberries and vanilla and a granola with cacao nibs.
PS: The granola is not burned, the black spots you see are the cacao nibs.
Another day, another soup.
This one has actually a pretty special taste yet very simple. Creamy, but vegan and please do not leave the lentil topping out, because they make this soup what it is. They give it filling but also some lightness to it because of the lemons…
For someone saying she doesn’t really like the taste of beets, I sure make a lot of food with it.
But lets be honest here, I made this hummus for the color, the fact it tastes really good is just a plus!
I have been working on this project for the last few months, and finally it’s here: the pinch of me webshop!
This blog has opened a whole new world for me, a world of unknown ingredients, unknown health benefits and so much more. Of course, I like being in the kitchen and experimenting to get the perfect end result. For those who are not like that, that’s where my shop comes in!
At the moment I have 10 different products available, 6 granola’s, 2 extracts and 2 raw bars. Extra products will be added soon.
Everything on the shop is handmade by me and as always without any added sugars and any preservatives.
For those we eat gluten free, you can order everything, just make sure to choose the gluten free option for the granola.

Once upon a time, there was a princess, a princess of spoons. Each evening she cooked a meal for us peasants. They were all delicious but a big time favourite was the lasagna with spinach, mushrooms and goat cheese.
Unfortunately ‘The princess of Spoons’ – a small restaurant in Antwerp- no longer exists. To keep the legacy alive my ‘sister’ Laura recreated the recipe, so all credits for this dish go to her.
