{ Waiting for Christmas } Orange spiced hot chocolate (vegan option)

--> recette en français

    Let's continue with some typical Winter drink, hot chocolate! I don't know about you but I love Christmas drinks, whether it is mulled white wine, Swedish Glögg or more comforting drinks like this red wine hot chocolate. Of course, there's the typical American eggnog.

   I'm more about coffee in the morning and then I like to enjoy tea or infusion during the day. On Winter cold days, I sometimes go for more comforting drinks like hot chocolate and I loved this one I made last year so now is your turn to enjoy too! Orange and chocolate always do a good marriage like here or here

{ Waiting for Christmas } Broccoli and cauliflower macaroni casserole (vegan)

    Après un bon chocolat chaud à déguster au fond du canapé devant un feuilleton ou film de Noël, il est temps de déguster un bon plat réconfortant ! Si vous ne souhaitez pas passer des heures en cuisine et pouvoir être à table avec vos convives, voici un plat familial prêt assez rapidement, avec des légumes de saison, rassasiant et gourmand mais sain à la fois, vous n'aurez plus qu'à apporter le plat au centre de la table et vous servir.

{ Waiting for Christmas } Raw or no bake orange cocoa chocolate truffles (vegan)

    Aujourd'hui, c'est à nouveau l'association chocolat orange que je vous propose dans cette recette de truffes, mais des truffes crues (ou sans cuisson), végétaliennes et saines, si si c'est possible ! Les ingrédients principaux étant des dattes moelleuses, du chocolat et du cacao (éventuellement crus) et du zeste d'orange, c'est tout !

   Les dattes apportent tout le moelleux des truffes et sucrent naturellement, il n'y a donc pas de sucre raffiné. Si vous en trouvez (en magasin bio) et aimez ça, tentez le chocolat et cacao crus, ces ingrédients sont bien plus riches en nutriments (magnésium, zinc, fer...). Si vous ne savez pas ce que c'est, en gros, il est dit cru quand les fèves de cacao n'ont subi aucune torréfaction et sont moulues à basse température. Je vous laisse en lire plus en détails dans cet article : clic.

{ Waiting for Christmas } Riisipuuro, cinnamon Finnish rice pudding and cooked cranberries (vegan option)

--> recette en français

    Today, I'm taking you to Scandinavia again because it had been a long time since I shared a recipe from Northern Europe and that I love its - sweet most of all - cuisine and hope to be able to enjoy it over there one day!

   The riisipuuro is a typical Finnish rice pudding but I could have shared the Swedish recipe of the risgrynsgröt or Danish risengrød. It's a Christmas specialty that most families enjoy during the celebrations of the end of the year. The rice is cooked slowly in milk (I chose plant-based) then served and each one can add sugar and cinnamon according to one's tastes.

Home made burgers buns (vegan)

--> recette en français

    A year ago, almost to the day, I published the recipe of pink burgers with beetroot buns and patties (here). I had wanted to make some again since but with buns more sweet and moist like brioche and less bread because they're my favorite. So I made a new burger recipe that I'll publish by the end of the week.

   I don't often take time to make bakery, however I love it, I like to knead the dough for bread, brioche and else and watch it rise slowly like magic. I don't have a food processor so I do everything by hand but I like this step I find relaxing like those little foam balls you knead inside of your palm to destress yourself.  And after all, this is not so long, you just have to think about the rise time ahead.
