The loveliest salad dressing ever (unsweetened)
I love salad dressings. I can eat salad all day if I have the right dressing. Here is another one, where I use organic honey. It's delicous as well! :)
The recipe for this one is simply:
1 good tsp tahini or almond butter
60ml coldpressed olive oil
Just a tiny bit of sea salt (optional but lovely)
Stir well in a jar or glass and pour over your salad!
What I love on my salad is lots of hemp seeds, ripe mango or dried cranberries (or both)....
Spelt mozzarella buns (yeast free!)
I love these. I have made them so often with my soups and stew I've lost count many, many years ago. I hope they will serve you and your family as well as they have served me and mine.
These are from my TV show; Homemade with Ebba
It takes only 5 minutes to make them. Remember to turn on your oven in the beginning.
*** Attention! These are best enjoyed with loads of olive oil and himalaya or seasalt :)
Delicous carrot soup (vegan)
This one is ever so lovely, healthy, healing and easy to make. You chop everything real coarse (which takes much less time) because in the end you blend it with a handheld blender.
We always enjoy this delicious soup with these classic spelt mozzarella buns. I have not met anybody who does not love them (and love how little time it takes to make them).
Bolognese your whole family will love
This one is from my mother in law, and she makes great food, so you are in for a treat :) We never grow tired of this simple and delicious bolognese.

Quinoa pizza for the gluten intolerant – it’s lovely (just like ordinary pizza, I promise)
This is how the base looks after I've baked it for 10 minutes ..
This pizza is just as easy to make as the spelt one! No yeast, no fuss, no nothing :)
Quinoa is a very, very nutritious seed that behaves like a grain. It is very rich in iron, good fats, protein (12-18%), calcium and more. It is naturally gluten free. Quinoa has a very mild delicate, slightly nutty flavor.
Remember to splash some good quality coldpressed olive oil over your pizza before ...
Very Icelandic Christmas cake
This is a cake that my Ebba (born 1911, I am named after her) used to bake a lot, and not only around Christmas (even though it is always called Christmas cake in Iceland). It is easy to make and tastes lovely, especially with coffee or tea.
I hope you try it!
Chocolate cake with dates instead of white sugar
It's easy and delicious to swap the white refined sugar in cakes and treats with dates. Dates are filled with vitamins and minerals and they do not have a distinct taste, they only taste sweet. They make this cake soft and lovely. I hope you try it!
The frosting for the cake:
70g melted butter (or about 50g cold pressed coconut oil)
70g organic maple syrup or dark agave syrup.
4 tbsp pure cacao powder
Mix everything well together and spread on your cake ...
Irresistible salad dressing that makes you want to eat loads of greens!
Did you know that a salad dressing containing good quality fat like organic olive oil will help you absorb better the carotenoids (phyto chemicals found in plant foods) in your salad. Carotenoids give plant foods their colour and act as antioxidants in the human body.
The body produces free radicals which are harmful compounds during normal metabolism as well as when infection is present. The harmful effect of free radicals is considered a major cause of cancer, cardiovascular disease, ...
Mixing it up
Dear friends. A friend came over last week and spoke about how she had started eating more nuts after lunch and until supper to curb her sugar cravings. This reminded me to remind you of this lovely option which is so easy to take with anywhere or have at home to enjoy whenever.
You of course simply buy those nuts you love (I buy organic) for instance:
.. and I like a little bit of sweetness to go with it .. (some do, and some don't - your ...
