Christmas-y Spinach Bowl

Spinach, feta cheese, pomegranate and apple. Olive oil and fleur de sel are drizzled on top.

Yes, Christmas is coming and this simple yet beautiful salad is great. Bring it to a party or just for you to enjoy. This one is made just for me… I got to try my recipes before putting them on the table for family, right? Yes, I will have this one on my table this year.

The taste is clean, crisp and sweet, smooth and tangy. The look is Christmas-y perfection!

  • I use fresh baby spinach and organic goat and sheep feta cheese.
  • My first cold press olive oil (which I like very much) is bought in my local bulk store.
  • I used locally grown apple but since it is pear season, I would also like to try them.

French Bowl

Ratatouille, lettuce (arugula, watercress, lamb’s lettuce), kimchi, fresh mushroom, sugar snap peas, sunflower and pumpkin seeds.

  • Ratatouille is a french classic. It’s made with eggplants, zucchini, tomatoes, onions, garlic, lemon juice and slowly cooked. It is eaten at room temperature. My husband makes it and I love when their are some leftover. I can add it to my Bowl and eat it cold.
  • Winter gives us fragile and pungent green leaves like the ones I used for this bowl.
  • I added my homemade kimchi
  • A local grower cultivate very good mushrooms.

Powerful Bowl

Homemade Kimchi, Red kidney beans, avocado, homemade broccoli sprouts, pumpkin and sunflower seeds.

This Bowl is packed with vitamins, minerals and probiotics.

  • The beans are cooked from scratch and in batches to use in my recipes.
  • I buy organic broccoli seeds and sprout them myself. Easy. And the sulfurofane of broccoli sprout is amazing for my health (and yours!).
  • Fermented food such as kimchi is also an amazing probiotic for my (and yours) gut health.

Combine these super ingredients and you have a Powerful Bowl.

Mexican Style Bowl

Avocado, Sweet potatoes, fresh coriander, cumin and Himalayan sea salt.

The fresh coriander with cumin is a stunning combination!

Cook the sweet potatoes and when cooled… add them every where! They are that good 😉

This fresh and super simple Bowl is vitamin packed and very satisfying.

Italian Bowl

Red leaf salad, tomato confit, avocado, brocoli, grated carrots, chickpeas, mushrooms, pumpkin seeds.

This bowl is made with an Italian twist…

  • I oven cooked some tomatoes with olive oil until they become what we call in french “confit”. The soft, mushy and sweet taste of tomatoes!
  • The broccoli I used are the Italian variety. They are steamed until al dente.
  • I cook my own chickpeas from scratch. Soaking and cooking them in batch to use them is my recipes.

Bring those Ingredients together with a fresh lettuce (in this case, red leaf) grated carrots, white button mushrooms, an avocado and sprinkle some pumpkin seeds and voilĂ  an Italian (maybe French too) Bowl.

Mizuna Mini Bowl

Barley, avocado, mizuna, chickpeas.

This bowl is very simple yet satisfying!

I cook my grains and beans from scratch… in batches so I have them in hand for my recipes.

Mizuna is a special winter lettuce/salad that is from the cabbage family. Very rich in calcium, vitamin A and C.
