A Spinach-Feta Buckwheat Crêpe is a gluten and lactose free dish merging French Galette with a Greek spinach filling. The difference between pancake, crêpe and galette Pancakes are a thicker version of crêpe, however not foldable, usually eaten with sweet toppings. Although if you visit France, you’ll find many types of “crêpes” in other words thin pancakes, there is the Galette, a buckwheat crêpe for savory fillings like cheese and ham and many more.

Also this salad become better the longer it stays in the fridge,…

Kamut is a whole grain, a great alternative for low-carb diet and diabetics. Although since brown pasta is not so appealing to the eye… we need to find a tasty way to make us forget about that color. That’s when the red beets pesto comes in the game! A healthy,tasty and colorful pesto that hides this less attractive brown pasta. I’m a big beets lover, but sadly there are often put aside because of their earthy flavor, but when used in combination with salty goat cheese and pistachios it balance out great the heavy earthy taste from the beetroot. Plus, Beets have that great ruby red color which make a great base for a romantic dinner, for you lovers…
