Avocado mango green smoothie bowl

--> recette en français

    If you're not familiar with those famous green smoothies, don't worry, they're good! You just need to put the right fruit (and greens) in the right quantities. I didn't do this on purpose but a year ago, I published a tutorial on what is a smoothie bowl and how to build one. To my surprising,  this article is one of the most read and pinned on Pinterest!

Avgolemono, Greek rice and lemon soup

--> recette en français

    For this special lemon week on the blog to celebrate the Lemon Festival held in Menton, on the French Riviera (France), between Nice and the Italian frontier, I wanted to find a savory recipe to propose on the blog because, even if I like cakes and pastries, one is enough in a week ! At least, not to my stomach but my body... ha ha.  I could have share the recipe of the Italian lemon pasta but I already have a recipe of macaroni with lemon and mascarpone cooked like a risotto here.

   And after a few researches, I stumbled upon this typical Greek dish. I know well the Greek cuisine but didn't even know this recipe called Avgolemono that is made of egg (avgo) and lemon (lemono) - as its name says. Traditionally , it's prepared with meat broth, egg and rice, some put meat inside too, most of the time chicken.

Lemon chia seed cardamom moist cake (vegan)

--> recette en français

    In France, we have several celebrations in some regions and before Carnival, the 84th Lemon Festival is being held in Menton, on the French Riviera between Nice and the Italian frontier since last Saturday and until March 1st. So I decided it was going to be lemon week on the blog! I love citrus fruit and lemon is part of them of course, the lemon cake is one of my favorites but I had never baked one, except these Italian lemon ricotta individual cakes

Orange cardamom rice pudding brulee (vegan option)

--> recette en français

    I think rice pudding is a comfort dessert most people seem to like, maybe because it reminds of childhood for some, like me. I like to make different versions of it like here or here. Today, I'm taking part to a new edition of the Battle Food and the theme chosen by Lova was "Rice Battle", I love it either in savory or sweet dishes but I really wanted to try rice pudding with citrus fruit and I chose the oranges because this is a fruit I cook too rarely.
