Blueberry lavender ice cream / Blaubeeren-Lavendel-Eis

Standard

Ongoing heat, dryness – and no end to it! While most of our friends indulge in summer life somewhere on the beach, the high temperatures are kind of bothering us three. Probably our hot temperate family would be better off somewhere in the north … 😊 In addition to full days of swimming in the Reuss river or on and in one of the numerous nearby lakes, we refresh ourselves with tons of fresh fruit, mint tea from the garden, Nimbu Pani (recipe here) and homemade ice cream. We would like to introduce you to our absolute favourite today. Weiterlesen

Vegan Diwali sweets: KHEER

Standard

Diwali, the Hindu festival of lights, has a high priority in our Indian-Swiss family. We decorate our apartment and our garden with lamps and lights and celebrate in the evening by candlelight a Pooja. And just like with the western-cultural ounterpart Christmas, sweets also play a central role. However, we change the traditional recipes according to our taste: they become much less sweet and of course vegan. Curious? Then try the following recipe for a vegan Kheer! 😊 Weiterlesen

Vegan Lucernese Gingerbread/ Veganer Luzerner Lebkuchen

Standard

One of the hottest summers in history (according to the records) is slowly coming to an end. Oh, how we enjoyed it: swimming, hiking and yoga in the garden, Nicecream, vegan BBQs, vegetables and herbs directly from the garden – and hours and hours of playing in the forest. The thermometer still shows 30°C, and we still have a few weeks of river swimming and sea bathing. However, the light coldness in the early morning hours and the birds on the electricity wires clearly show: Autumn is on its way!
We look very much forward to the colourful season with pumpkin soup and fruit bread. To get into the right autumn feeling, we have developed a vegan version of the tasty Lucernese gingerbread – fast, easy and super yummy! 😊 Weiterlesen

Elderflower/Holunderblüten

Standard

Like white clouds the aromatic elderflower blossoms shine again in forests and gardens. As a plate decoration, the small flowers give each dish a summery note. But the elderflower, besides its sweet aroma, also contains a true variety of health benefits. The essential oils in the blooms are dehydrating and promote the excretion of toxins, fight viruses and bacteria, reduce fever and relieve cold symptoms. In addition to the well-known elderflower syrup, elderflower blossoms taste delicious as a tea infusion. And our personal favourite is the following elderflower dessert: Weiterlesen
