There is no doubt that hummus is one of the most popular and healthy dips out there. This is a simple and easy recipe for homemade hummus with a twist: smoked paprika adds a seductive smoky flavour and aroma. Smoked paprika hummus–stuffed tomatoes can be served as an impressive and nutritious side dish which offers a refreshing take on spring tomatoes.
Constantinople Walnut and Raisin pie is pure aromatherapy; the scent of almonds and walnuts fills the whole house! This is a very light dessert and it is perfect for a healthy snack at work. A cup of chamomile tea pairs beautifully with a slice of Constantinople Walnut and Raisin pie.
Named after the queen of England and wife of King Henry VI, Marguerite d’Anjou pear cake is one of the most famous vintage French desserts. This ambrosial pear cake is loaded with fresh fragrant pears and bright citrus flavours; Marguerite d’Anjou leaves a very delicate taste as it melts in the mouth and releases a retro elegant aroma — sweet fruit and zesty citrus. This is not only a simple and elegant recipe but also a tried and tested one; my Marguerite d’Anjou pear cake recipe is vegan and vintage-inspired.
