Put all ingredients except for the tomato into a large stock pot and bring to the boil, then lower heat and simmer for 15 minutes more, add the diced tomato, a pinch of Flor de Sal and a tablespoon of the wonderful olive oil for each serving.

a couple drops lemon juice

Cook the rice in unsalted water. Heat a pot, add olive oil,  lemon peel and coriander seeds and fry cougette slices until golden. Then add Flor de sal, lemon juice, tomatoes and wait until tomatoes have melted, then add radicchio and olives and turn off the stove, stirring for the radicchio to mix well with the rest, then add rice, cover and let rest for 5 minutes.

Talk detox- my favourite first evening d

1 bundle spinach
3 cooked beetroot, diced
2 sweet potatoes, diced
4 tsp. coriander leaves, chopped
4 tsp. basil leaves, chopped
Olive oil
Freshly ground black pepper
Flor de Sal
Juice ½ - 1 lemon

Peel, wash and dice sweet potato and cook until "al dente". Clean and briefly blanch spinach in hot water (it should keep some texture) and drain, keeping the liquids. Put the spinach into a serving bowl, immediately adding diced beetroot, diced sweet potato, Flor de Sal, coriander and basil and finishing off with olive oil, lemon juice and black pepper. Stir well and decorate with avocado, herbs and black sesame if at hand!

I really recommend having juicy vegetables - you can even add some spinach cooking water if you like...


2 Tbs olive oil or coconut oil
500 g carrots
1 orange – peel and juice
1 pinch ground nutmeg
½ l water
2 Tbs chopped spearmint
Flor de Sal
(Sri Lanka if you happen to have it at home)

Heat the oil gently in a medium saucepan then add the carrots and leave simmering at low heat, stirring occasionally, until the vegetables have softened.

Grate the peel of half an orange onto the carrots and pour in the heated water.

Squeeze both halves of the orange and add the “empty half” orange to the pot for flavouring.

Simmer until the vegetables are soft, then take out the orange peel (half the orange).

Use a food processor or blender to process until smooth, then tip in the orange juice and stir in.

Chop the mint - add some other herbs if you like - add toasted almond slivers and serve immediately.
