Shrimp Tostadas

A classic Mexican dish. A fresh, vibrant and fabulous dish.

We use pre-cooked shrimp. Marinate them in a simple sauce made with lime juice, chopped cilantro and a pinch of salt. Blend it all together and throw in the shrimp, the red onions and the radishes.

Grab a tostada, spread some mayo. Add the shrimp, avocado, red onion on top and radishes on top.

You can add some drops of Valentina sauce or Salsa Verde on top.

Roasted Brussel Sprouts with Sweet Sour Sauce

Little gems of crunchiness with a delicious sauce on top.


Clean and cut in half the Brussel Sprouts.  Place them in an oven-safe pan and drizzle with olive oil and salt in a pre-heated oven at 200ºC

While the Brussel Sprouts are roasting make the sauce by mixing the coconut aminos, honey and lime together. Taste and add a pinch of salt if needed.

Once the Brussel Sprouts are roasted ( around 25 minutes,) take them out of the oven and drizzle with the sauce on top.
You can add some Parmesan shavings on top.

Chocolate Thins with Nuts and Fruit

Easy and fast little desserts to share and enjoy .

Simply start by breaking the chocolate bars and adding it into a bowl

Melt the chocolate with a “Bain Marie”. Ideally, the chocolate won’t heat higher than 45ºC. Use silicone or a wooden spatula to move the chocolate until it is completely melted.

Add the melted chocolate to a baking tray lined with parchment paper. Spread it thinly with a spatula.

Sprinkle on top the toppings of your choice and put it in the fridge until the chocolate hardens. Cut into pieces.


Cheese Board

Valentine’s day is fast approaching, and cheese lovers will understand the importance of a good cheeseboard on this day.

I am adding 2 recipe ideas. One in the ingredients list and one below:

Grab 2 of your favourite cheeses. Ideally 1 soft and 1 strong. My choices are, most of the times, either brie or goats cheese; and manchego or cheddar.

Place 2 stalks of black grapes, because grapes and cheese pair very well together.
Buy a beautiful fig jam. Buy a good quality jam, it makes all the difference.
Choose your favourite nuts, either walnuts, almonds, hazelnuts, pistachios, etc. you could do a mix of some or simply choose one type.
Add some pretzels and toasted baguettes

Sweet Potato Gnocchi with Cashew Cheese Sauce

For now, cooking is all about comfort. Feed your soul


  1. Steam your sweet potatoes. Once cool enough, remove the skin and pass them through a potato masher
  2. Combine the salt and 2 cups of flour. Flour a work surface and pour your flour mixture onto the surface. Make a well in the middle of the flour.
  3. Add the sweet potato mash into the well.
  4. Flour your hands and begin working the sweet potato into the flour. Continue to work the mixture until it’s fully combined. You don’t want the dough to be sticky so keep adding flour until you get a nice dry dough.
  5. Once fully combined, roll the dough into a ball and cut it into eight even pieces. Roll each piece into a long log that’s about 1/2 an inch thick. Cut pieces the gnocchi into 1-inch pieces. Gently toss each piece into flour to ensure that it’s dry and not sticky at any edges.
  6. Heat a pot of salted water to a boil. Add in the gnocchi and let cook for a couple of minutes. Once the gnocchi floats to the surface of the water, let it boil for 30 more seconds and then remove it from the water using a slotted spoon.


Blend the cashews, arrowroot, onion powder, garlic powder, lemon juice, paprika, sea salt and water until smooth. Pour into a small saucepan and whisk on medium-high heat until it gets thick. Add the sauce to the cooked gnocchi

Veggie Spring Rolls

A meatless recipe that I have enjoyed at home lately and thought you might like it too.


To make the spring rolls, fill a bowl or pan big enough to fit the rice paper with warm water. Soak the rice paper in the water for about 30 seconds – until pliable but not soggy. Place the rice paper on a work surface, put a sixth of the filling onto the wrapper and roll up like a fat sausage. Wet the edges of the wrapper, press to seal. Repeat with other wrappers and the rest of the mixture

To serve, leave the rolls whole or cut them in half with a sharp knife. Sprinkle with sesame seeds (if using) and serve with the dipping sauce.
