Banana Peel Burgers

With the peel of the banana you can make yummy burger patties! Nutritious and delicious. A great substitute for meat and super sustainable – I’ll never ever throw away peels in the garbage can again!


Peels ready and banana chopped
to be freezed for ice cream
4 banana peels, thoroughly rinsed/washed and then chopped
Approx. 1 ½ cup all-purpose flour (gluten-free, if you want)
1 small carrot, grated
1 medium onion, chopped
1 small green pepper, chopped
1 TBS Cajun seasoning
1 tsp garlic powder
1 cup olive oil
1 cup gluten-free oat flour
½ cup teff flour


1. Preheat oven to 180°C. Line your baking sheet with a silicon mat or parchment paper. Set aside.

2. Blend all ingredients (except oat and teff flours) until it becomes a wet dough. You don’t have to over process them.

3. Pour mix into a big bowl and then add the flours.

4. Make patties and put them on the lined sheet. Bake for 35-40 minutes.

Persian Fresh Herb Platter - Sabzi Khordan

I met a lovely Iranian lady at a friend's house and when she talked about this typical Persian platter I just couldn't think about anything else anymore.

According to her, it's served with no sauce or oils, just the greens, feta (use vegan cheese if vegan or omit it), some crunchiness and dried fuits (nuts and dates), accompanied by a flat bread (use gluten-free if needed).

If you  don't like one of the herbs there, you can just omit or substitute. It's meant to help digestion and to be served as a side dish.

Black Bean Cakes with Mango Salsa

Delighful bean patties that you can easily serve in sandwiches or just as is. The salsa also adds so many fresh, contrasting flavors! Fresh lime and cilantro, bitter onions and sweet mango is an amazing combination...

Ajust the salsa ingredients per taste. I only needed 1 mango, for example. If you prefer (I do) instead of frying the patties, bake them.

Ooey-Gooey Dark Chocolate Espresso Date Oat Bars

These wholesome bars are so incredibly beautiful and delicious! I love that mix of gooeyness with crunchiness.

Personal note: I would put in the fridge before cutting them, otherwise they might fall apart, I found them a little too crumbly. After staying in the fridge they get firmier and much better.
