Sometimes the stimulus to cook a new recipe comes from an unexpected direction.
Cleaning up the uppermost shelf of my wardrobe, trying to tighten und lash up our winter blankets while standing on a wobbly stool (Attention: DO NOT TRY THIS!) I managed to give myself a full blown punch on my left eye. It really hurt and my eye started to swell (well, at least I did not knock myself out). My husband sprinted to the kitchen and came back with a bag of frozen peas to put on. You see, a green diet improves health:)
But what to do with those half-defrosted peas? Helene Holunder has a wonderful recipe in her book “Meine Familie isst vegan” (My family eastes vegan), to make good use of them.
Recipe: Pea-Soup with Mint and Coconut
Every single year my friend Bea bakes a vegan birthday cake for me and also one for my husband’s birthday. Every single time a different one. Every single time her cakes are not only super-tasty, all vegan and organic, but they always are true eye candies. I even have created a Facebook album just for all her creations.
This year’s cake was especially pretty with it’s blueberries, coconut topping – and a filling of avocado, peanuts and raspberries.

If i am grumpy, stressed and do not feel like doing anything, not even to cook, my husband comes to rescue me with a huge pot of hot soup. He so turns a horrible day into a great one. The last time he saved my day it was with this mouth-watering tomato – coconut soup inspired by Björn Moschinski’s book “vegan kochen für alle”
