Baked Falafel Balls

I live in Israel where falafel is wildly available and you can find options from gluten free to coated and spicy versions. Despite the variety I’m still looking for a all-good-for-you falafel and decided to take it as a mission at home. These baked falafels are gluten free and you can make them vegan by replacing the egg with vegan substitute such as soaked flax […]

Whole Wheat Caprese Pizza

The simple Italian salad made from sliced fresh mozzarella, sliced tomatoes and basil leaves – Caprese makes a wonderful pizza topping and is extra pleasuring on a crunchy whole wheat crust. We often do pizza nights and I love tweaking the crust with spices, cheese and using different flours. My husband has only one request for the crust – it has to be thin and […]

Onion & Feta Cheese Souffle

Two weeks ago I made my first savory souffle and both my husband and I loved it, so I could not wait longer to make another one. ūüėÄ Compared to the 4 cheese souffle, I used more cheese in this one and¬†the texture is different because of the onion and chive and¬†the feta crumbles melt giving the whole souffle slightly saltier flavor. Cheese souffle is […]

4 Cheese Soufflé

¬†First dish in the finished new kitchen, low carb cheese souffle made with¬†a blend of some of our favorite cheeses; Edam, Emmental, Parmesan and Gouda. I’ve made many sweet souffles before, first savory and it’s¬†my new favorite, cheesy and full of flavor. I will definitely do some other versions of cheese souffles in the weeks to come.

Spinach & Halloumi Quiche

Spinach has a flavor I find hard to describe, let’s say it’s a strong green flavor that goes well with salty cheeses. Halloumi is a mild salty Cypriot cheese, there are some versions that taste saltier than other, yet less salty than feta, that I usually use in spinach quiche. Although I prefer halloumi paired with mint leaves it’s nice with spinach leaves too, especially […]

Pizza Dough

Making pizza is fun and definitely one of my favorite thing with pizza is trying out new methods for a perfect pizza crust. I often use whole wheat flour but today I went all white with “00” flour which is extra-fine, soft flour,¬†low in protein content. I can’t get it in my normal grocery store but you can find it in any store selling Italian […]
