The word “chia” probably conjures images of the “Chia Pet” in your minds, if you grew up during the 80s and 90s. Besides being a fun toy, chia seeds are incredibly nutritious and as it turns out, delicious!
In this new episode of Ligia’s Kitchen, my wife presents an original recipe of hers, which she just created: a raw vegan version of fish roe salad, or taramosalata as the Greeks call it. Being half-Greek, she’s earned the right to meddle with this traditional Mediterranean dish.
For those of you who’ve only recently subscribed to my website after I was featured in the Freshly Pressed section of WP.com (hello and thank you by the way), I should explain that I produce Ligia’s Kitchen; I also direct it, film it and edit it. That’s how I get to call myself a filmmaker. Ligia’s Kitchen is an award-winning web series which earned the title of YouTube Next Chef.
Enjoy watching this episode and do try the recipe, it’s guaranteed to be delicious!
We just published episode 32 of our show, Ligia’s Kitchen, featuring a delicious entree made from lentils and scallions, seasoned with dill, lemon and salt. Ever since Ligia created the recipe a couple of months ago, she’s made it for us at least once a week, and it’s still great, every time I taste it. It’s a wonderful summer recipe.
Strawberries are ripe and ready to be picked in our garden! This means, among other delicious things, that we’ve made a wonderful recipe for you, a raw twist on the traditional Strawberries and Cream dessert.
The cream is made from cashews, honey, lemon juice and water, and you pour it over freshly picked and sliced strawberries.
After about three months on hiatus, during which we re-purposed one of the rooms in our house as a studio for the show and renovated it from top to bottom, we’re back with a new episode of Ligia’s Kitchen!
It’s a recipe for Kombucha Tea, a delicious probiotic beverage that will replenish your body with a much-needed enzyme and vitamin soup. You can grow Kombucha in your pantry (it needs a dark, not-too-cold place to grow) and if you’re good to it, you can have a Kombucha colony, so you’ll always have fresh Kombucha on hand should you want it (and you will want it).
Don’t forget to turn on the subtitles (use the CC button) for this video, because we recorded it in Romanian. We’ll be back to English starting with the next episode.
We made a special episode of Ligia’s Kitchen for Valentine’s Day, which we hope will provide you with a great recipe for your loved ones: raw, organic hemp hearts (brownies), glazed with strawberry sauce and topped with pomegranate!
Bon appetit and Happy Valentine’s Day!
See how easy it is to make raw sesame milk at home, in mere minutes, in our latest episode of Ligia’s Kitchen! Sesame milk is full of calcium and is incredibly delicious. The wonderful thing about the calcium in it is that it’s readily absorbed by our bodies, unlike the artificial calcium added into various other beverages.
Ligia made a delicious pate in this episode of Ligia’s Kitchen, which you can spread on raw bread or you can devour as a veggie dip (which is what we did at the end).
It’s quick and easy to make (just blend the ingredients together) and super-delicious, so we hope you’ll try it at home!
