I honestly can't believe that I'm flying to Nepal tomorrow. My suitcase is still unpacked, but I'm doing hundred things at once today, so I'll be on it soon enough. I'm especially excited to visit the beautiful Pokhara and our day at the ayurveda clinic. But our food centered two week trip to the roof of the world will be packed with wonderful places and activities, so I'm sure I will collect some great inspiration and beautiful memories. If you would like to check on me while I'm away, you can definitely keep an eye on my Instagram, where I will be posting updates.

My love for tomatoes is ancient and endless. That's why I have so many tomato recipes on my page. When I was a kid, I often cooked up a batch of easy tomato and flour sauce, which went so great with boiled potatoes. But this new version is flour-free and it's packed with flavor from herbs and garlic. You can use regular tomatoes or cherry tomatoes, it really depends on the season and your liking. If you don't have vegan cooking cream at home, you can use coconut milk or make your own cashew cream.

This salad made its debut at one of my private cooking workshops. It's about time to share it with you! I had to experiment with the dressing for quite a few times, until I got it just right. Now I'm really happy with the taste and texture. It's super creamy, tangy and rich. The dressing is just perfect poured on a juicy romaine lettuce and breaded chickpeas. These wonderful filling chickpeas are a great gluten free substitute for regular bread croutons.

Hello March! Or should I say hello Spring? Not quite yet, but hold on! There are sneakers and hoodies and fresh Spring air in the near future. I still can't believe I'll be flying to Nepal on the 20th! A tiny travel fever is starting to hit me. When I'm back in Estonia, it will be April already! Then I can enjoy the beautiful Estonian Spring at our forest cabin.

To be honest, I haven't been craving smoothies during this cold winter season. Especially since we have -4 F (-20 C) right now in Estonia. Brrrr! But I can't say no to this creamy and refreshing citrus smoothie. I've fell in love with blood oranges. They are SO sweet and super juicy. Of course you can also use regular oranges or clementines in this recipe. The "secret" ingredient for an extra refreshing taste is half a slice of lemon with peel left on.
