Recipe: Plant Based Nutella

This cacao infused nut butter recipe will have you tossing out your Nutella in no time. If you do go the hazelnut route for your choice of nuts, make sure to bake the hazelnuts for about 10 minutes and let them cool before placing them in the blender.

Recipe: Sweet and Tart Salad Jar

The sweet and tangy combinations of this salad make it an exciting and well rounded dish, as a side or a main. You can choose which type of nuts you'd like to use, along with either a soft or hard type of goat cheese. Also, finding a good quality balsamic glaze (we found ours at Gourmet Egypt) will add an exceptional flavor dynamic to any salad creation!

Baked Potato Wedges and Ranch Dressing

Baked is always better than fried, and these oven potatoes are the perfect example of that! Super simple and accompanied with a creamy and delicious homemade ranch dressing is the ideal way to get your potato fix, without all the grease of frying. The key to the crispy on the outside and soft and delicious on the inside style wedge is thick cut wedges and equal cooking on each side.

Homemade Granola

Homemade granola is one of the easiest recipes to customize. You can use different combinations of nuts, seeds and dried fruits according to your preference. Be ready to say good bye to sugary store bought granola and hello to your own healthier, customizable granola creation! Be sure you use rolled oats and not instant oats for this recipe.

Tomato Beetroot Marinara Sauce

Marinara is not only a perfect pasta sauce, but this "all purpose" recipe is an excellent homemade accompaniment to so many dishes. Not your typical Egyptian salsa, it can be mixed with sour cream to make a dip, used as a spread on sandwiches, as a substitute to ketchup for dipping, spread as a perfect base for homemade pizza, or to top off any piece of chicken and lightly broiled for a change of flavors. This recipe will make one medium jar, so don't be shy to double or triple the recipe and store some in the freezer for later!

Tabbouleh

Simple, traditional and oh so good (for you too). Parsley has high vitamin levels to keep your immune system in check, it boosts kidney function and helps with flushing out toxins and can lower blood pressure if consumed regularly. As with all greens, buy organic parsley when possible to keep this salad recipe extra clean!

Classic Lentil Soup

A traditional lentil soup that can be enjoyed year round and is hearty enough to serve as a meal on it's own. Lentil soup not only has a hearty dose of plant based protein, but is also full of other veggies to help you get your daily dose. Bake your own Shami bread into croutons instead of frying for a healthier bit of crunch.

Date Cake

This light and flavorful cake recipe makes around 16 pieces and is great for baking in smaller, individual pans for a planned number of guests. The natural sweetness of the dates also means there is no added sugar to this minimalist and delicious dessert creation!

Raspberry Mozzarella Salad with Raspberry Balsamic Vinaigrette

This non-traditional take on a salad brings a very unique taste from a different mix of flavors. But creaminess of the fresh mozzarella, the tartness of the berries and the salty almonds compliment each other perfectly. The combination of leafy greens and vitamin C together also provide a nutritious boost!
