RECIPE: Zucchini with redfish, bell pepper coconut sauce and pearl couscous
RECIPE: Vegetable curry with turmeric, coconut (and chicken)
We often don't have much time to spend in the kitchen. Then we like to make something healthy that is ready in a fraction of a time. This dish is lightly seasoned with Indian spices and is ready within 30 minutes. I usually try to keep the ingredients simple. But if you love Indian food, you'll definitely want to have turmeric on hand for future meals. The yellow-colored spice does more than add flavor to your meals.
RECIPE: Panzanella salad
Now that the temperatures are warming up again, I only think of one thing: salad for dinner. Not just any salad, but a really tasty one. One that helps us meet our daily goal of 3 servings of vegetables and 2 servings of fruit per day. This bread and tomato salad is nice and fresh and summery, yet hearty enough to eat for lunch or a light dinner. Although it has a reputation as a Tuscan dish, bread salads are not uncommon elsewhere in the Mediterranean.
RECIPE: Low-sugar cherry jam
Fresh cherries are still in season, time to make delicious jam with them so that we can enjoy delicious cherries all year round. This low-sugar cherry jam recipe is so good you could eat it right out of the jar. This stuff is great. The hardest part of making jam is pitting the fresh cherries. For extra flavor I use Kirsch. As the alcohol evaporates during the cooking process, the intense cherry flavor is preserved, adding extra depth to an already great jam. I probably don't need to tell you how to enjoy this low-sugar cherry jam. On toast, on ice, in Jolliette's yogurt, in an irresistible cherry pie or spread over goat cheese with crackers.
RECIPE: Jolliette's tomato sauce
This tomato sauce is so good it's sure to become your family's favorite sauce recipe! This is a recipe we've been perfecting for years. It brings back good memories for our children. For Jolliette, a tomato sauce is a sauce that simmers on the stove for a long time so that the flavors really deepen and develop.
RECIPE: Jolliette's carrot soup
If you love a flavorful bowl of soup, this recipe will deliver on all fronts. 1 bowl of soup also gives you 1 of the 3 necessary servings of vegetables per day. The warm herbs, in combination with lemon will surprise you in the best possible way. The first time I made this soup was to use up the abundance of carrots I had in the house. I had cooked carrots for soup so many times before, but once tried roasting them first. The result was great!
RECIPE: Grilled romaine lettuce with an avocado and lime dressing
If you've never grilled lettuce before, we certainly don't blame you. Try our romaine lettuce with a delicious taste on the grill. Nice and crispy, with browned ruffled edges. Tender on the inside, yet crunchy. With a creamy dressing made from avocado, cherry tomatoes and a delicious piece of grilled chicken or fish, the evening is completely successful.
RECIPE: garlic chimichurri sauce
In Argentina, chimichurri is served with parrillada - a mixed grill of steak, chops and sausages. This tasty topping complements much more than grilled meats. Use chimichurri as a marinade, dipping sauce or condiment to transform vegetables, pasta and more. We like to combine chimichurri with our summer grilled vegetables.
RECIPE: Jolliette's grilled vegetables with balsamic dressing
Making grilled vegetables with a delicious balsamic dressing is one of my favorite ways to enjoy vegetables in the summer. It's fresh, it's healthy, and if you use different colors, it's beautiful! It's a quick and easy side dish that takes very little effort and is infused with so much flavor, not just from the balsamic dressing, but from the grilling itself. A hit at barbecues, but also on any day of the week.
RECIPE: soft Belgian waffles without sugar and lactose
We regularly test recipes in Jolliette's kitchen, or we experiment with a healthier form of existing recipes. On Sundays we often feel like something sweet. In the most delicious wafers from our Moeke. Our daughter has lactose intolerance, we made a version without lactose especially for her and replaced the sugar with a healthier version. This makes our wafers nice and sweet. Give this recipe a try and combine it with a portion of red fruit. This way you get 1 of your 2 servings of fruit per day (also think of your 3 servings of vegetables). Opt for a mix of berries such as blueberries and strawberries.
