Natural colored Delight Bites

IMG_7484
Vegan Maki Sushi isn’t a new Recipe invented by the Delight Bite – kitchen but today I gave it a little twist by coloring the rice with natural colors – Spirulina, Turmeric, Beet Juice and Sweet Pepper Powder transformed this simple meal into a rainbow.
With Sauteed Garlic-Mushrooms I added more Omami to the food and served it with pickled Ginger, Soy Sauce, Wasabi and of course Chop Sticks.

A great way to create Finger Food for a Party or simply bring some color to the table in a natural way.

A Homage to Fruits and Breakfast

Sweet Potato Corn Balls and Tzatziki

IMG_7452
For today/ Tonight I show you an other Recipe from my Bridesmaids Night aka Bridal Shower aka Girls Night.
IMG_7453
As I kept everything low fat, I baked these Sweet Potato Corn Balls (I like my food Oil Free and baked). But baking usually makes food dryer then frying.
I believe good creamy Dips and Sauces (low fat of course tzzz) make up for it. So I served them with a lushious vegan Tzatziki Dip, my Tex Mex Salad and some small Tortillas.

I still had some Corn Meal left from the states, but also used some 2-Min.-Polenta, which works perfectly. The dough stays very sticky. SO get ready for some dirty hands!

I believe you can also prepare them for a party and serve them cold, as I ate them cold the next day and they still tasted equally good (I just loooove leftovers!! Don’t you too!?).

Read you soon my dear ones!

Special Food for Special People

IMG_7418
Today I have something nice for you guys. But even more I have something nice for my Bridesmaids, as they are the ones that actually come and eat the food I have prepared.
I am getting married this summer and even if we don’t have the tradition with the Maids here in Switzerland, I believe it’s a lovely one. So for our special day this summer I’ve decided to have my friends of honor and best sisters being my Bridesmaids. And as they do so much for me through this time (just thinking about all my wedding bla bla they deal with), tonight I can give them back just a little bit, by cooking for them and celebrate our friendships.

Birthday love and the Valentines surrender

IMG_7397
Yesterday was my friends birthday. I asked her sister, what her favorite cake was and she said Poppy Seed or Chocolate. You know me: Why choose if you can have both, right?
A Poppy Seed Chocolate cake with a Marzipan layer
IMG_7391
This Marzipan layer should have stayed in the middle, Poppy and Chocolate everywhere, but the little cake had other plans and made this incredible gooey chocolate marzipan base (Yes, it sunk). The bigger cake handled my plan a bit better. Either way, the taste was delightful and the little trick of the situation: You just act like the result is exactly what you wanted.
IMG_7402
So I made a little experiment and the result was a beautiful cake, tasty and moist. Actually 2 beautiful cakes. A normal sized cake for my dear friend Andrea and this little sweety in the photo.
You probably know that tomorrow is Valentine’s day. And even if I and my soon to be husband don’t celebrate this at all (at least that’s what we say), it is hard to forget about it, if it’s all over the stores and commercials. So what happens is, a week before Valentine’s day I get reminded at least once a day, that this day is around the corner – This day we kind of don’t want to celebrate (Because why show love and gratitude on one day if you can show it every day).
IMG_7404
But every time by the end of the week I capitulate: I just looove making presents and love notes and it’s just an other reason to bake some sweets for my love – with a little self cheating trick: I just bake it a day before – resisting the Valentines pressure not.
And then there is the other reason why to bake cakes: There is no lovelier smell for me then the smell of bread, cake or cookies in the oven, while it is raining or snowing outside. That simple.
But why is this cake so incredible rich and moist? The secret ingredient is no more a secret: Creme fraiche or Plantbased Cashew Sour Cream/ Silken Tofu

I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as I do and I wish everybody a beautiful Valentine’s day or just a great day without Valentine, whatever you prefer.

Time to Glow

IMG_4677

I first thought, it might be a bit early for this post (as most people want to detox in spring time), but I changed my mind. It can’t really ever be too early for this!
So it’s the end of cold and freezing january and after all the holiday deliciousness and hearty savory food I enjoyed in the last 2 months, it’s time to get back on feeling-fabulous track.
Also I wanted to wait with this post, because we just saw some green drinkable something in the post before. But then I thought, the green hell with it. You can never eat or drink too many greens. And I myself love recipes that show me new ways how to increase the daily greens. Especially in the winter time…. were we sometimes forget about their existence.
The second reason is, that so many people around me these days are ill and have bad colds etc. So it is definitely time for an immune system boost!
So I thought about this warm half raw- half cooked Soup for the maximum of nutritions.
All you need is a blender (I know I’m a lucky girl with my Vitamix blender, but i believe any blender will work)

IMG_4670

The trick with the soup is to not cook the greens. They stay raw. For the warmth of the soup we add warm water to the blender instead of cold. And for the warmth inside us we add Garlic, Ginger, Pepper and Cayenne Pepper. Only the Peas are cooked and added while still hot.

This metabolism/immune system booster soup is full of Potassium, iron, zinc, and lots of Vitamins. Also the celery is high in sodium and gives the soup a natural salty taste, in case you don’t want to add salt.

It’s a super savory and satisfying meal and perfect for a detox or energy boost.
The preparation time is less then 10 Minutes.

Guest Post: Cucumber – Basil Dream Team

IMG_7365
Here it is, my second guest Post straight from the recipe book of Mama Lovestone.
You might think “Isn’t this cold Cucumber and Basil Soup more of a summer dish”. Well, I won’t contradict. But hey, there is an other half of the world that has summer time right now. So this is for all you people that enjoy a warm climate right now or that simply don’t care and like to enjoy some cold creamy soup when it snows – just like me.
IMG_7357
You can prepare it the day before and it only takes you about 10 Minutes to make this super savory soup.
It’s a great dish to serve in small glasses at the Buffet or also as an appetizer.
IMG_7372
That certain something comes from the Noilly Prat, a french Wermouth. If you can’t find that brand, you could also use “Martini extra dry”. Not the same taste, but it would work. The Original Recipe is with greek yoghurt, but I “veganized” the recipe (replaced with soy yoghurt) and as I have tried both ways before, I must say, there is no taste difference. This Soup is simply a taste bomb!

Guest post: Avocado- Tomato Dream Team

IMG_4536
As I promised, here my first guest post from no one less then my mother. For the new years eve dinner she prepared a beautiful Buffet for 16 hungry people. Two of the recipes I would like to share with you, as they are simple and fast to make but are a little star, when it comes to tickle your taste buds.
And…my personal opinion: Little scrumptious food combinations in small classes make me happy just to look at.
This is a great option for a Buffet or also as an appetizer.
For me there is no better cuisine then cooking with simple high quality ingredients. And the combination of sweet Cherry Tomatoes and creamy rich Avocado just scream to be eaten together….at least in my head (common, Avo-Toast with Tomatoes and cracked Pepper- who doesn’t get a kick out of this 2 Minute prep. meal)

As a first course I would maybe make some homemade focaccia to go with it. Or what are your serving ideas?
