I absolutely adore homemade bread and I try and bake some as often as I can. My go-to bread recipe is this easy to make Ciabatta, as I love bread with a crunchy top. However, I also like homemade sandwich bread. I find it much easier to digest than store-bought ones.
I love popcorn and I often make for the family when we stay home to watch a movie on the weekend. Popcorn makes a great snack, even for people with digestive problems.
How do you feel about one-pot meals? I think they are awesome and I definitely don’t make them enough. Easier clean-up is always nice, right?
Who doesn’t love a refreshing smoothie? I know I do and so do my children. This Kiwi Ginger Smoothie is both dairy-free and low FODMAP, so besides being yummy and healthy, it is also gentle on the tummy.
Since starting the Low FODMAP diet, I am always looking for healthy snack ideas and these Salted Caramel Pepitas fit the bill perfectly.
After sharing with you the recipe for traditional Eggplant Caponata, today I am back with an healthier and quicker version of this Sicilian summer classic: Lightened-up Eggplant Caponata.
I love these Italian Red Wine Doughnut Cookies. I know it can seem quite strange to make sweet cookies with wine, but it is actually very common in Italy.
These Almond Pralines are addictive. Believe me, you may not be able to stop eating them! In Italy, when I was little, they were sold by street vendors during Christmas time, or at local fêtes and markets.
Today’s recipe is very common in Italy, especially in the south. We often cook boiled vegetables with garlic and tomato to turn them into a flavoursome dish. This technique is called “ripassare”, which means to give the vegetables a second cooking.
Today I am sharing with you a very simple recipe for bread: Olive Oil Snail Bread Rolls. I love baking bread. It’s actually one of the things I like to do the most.
After making my Chocolate Hazelnut Milk, I had some hazelnut pulp left and you know I love to re-use leftovers, don’t you? I dug and dug and I found a great recipe for it: Vegan Chocolate Hazelnut Truffles.
As a child, my favourite breakfast drink would always be cold milk with chocolate/cocoa powder in it. But it had to be cold… or nothing. My favourite treat would be anything with Nutella, and, you guessed it, my favourite nut has always been hazelnut. So, when I saw this Chocolate Hazelnut Milk, I could not…
I have a confession to make: my fridge is full of little home-made jam jars like this Papaya Jam. In fact, I like to have different jams available at all times, especially for breakfast. I don’t eat much of it, but I like to have options.
Mmmm a One Pot Mushroom Rice?? Yes, you read that right! To make this delicious rice, you only need one pot! And cleaning has never been easier!
Since moving to Australia I have fallen in love with mangoes. I had eaten them already during holidays outside of Europe (Indian mangoes are amazing!), but mangoes in Italy are… well… pretty tasteless.
Today’s recipe is yet another vegan dessert: Vegan Mango Bundt Cake. Since discovering that I am lactose intolerant, I have been experimenting quite a bit with vegan desserts.
Happy World Nutella Day everyone! If you follow Manu’s Menu more or less regularly, you will know that I LOVE Nutella. I grew up eating it in Italy (yes, it is an Italian product!) and I still love it. However, you may also know that I have recently discovered that I am severely lactose intolerant.
As you may know, I have recently discovered that I am lactose intolerant. That means that I have to also find new ways to satisfy my sweet tooth, so I am always on the lookout for recipes that do not include dairy. Good vegan recipes, like this Vegan Apple Spice Cake, are always great, as…
My readers often write to me to ask for some quick side dish ideas to serve with their Italian meals. I know, I don’t publish many side dishes on the site. I am not sure why as growing up, my mother would always serve at least one or two sides with our meal. Anyhow, these…
If you follow Manu’s Menu more or less regularly, you may know that I have recently found out that I am lactose intolerant. Don’t worry, I will still be publishing “normal” recipes, but I will also start experimenting with dairy-free (or lactose-free) recipes. This Vegan Wholemeal Banana Bread is one of the first attempts at…
Have you ever had Pumpkin Jam? I personally love it and I also love the fact that it is really easy to make. This version also has a hint of freshly grated ginger to it, and I think it works really well with the pumpkin flavour. You can use this jam to make tarts, pies,…
This Pumpkin Bread is stunning, even if I say so myself. Besides looking good, it is also extremely tasty and very easy to make. It makes the perfect addition to your fall table, so I suggest you bookmark this recipe for the upcoming holiday season! This bread doesn’t only look like a pumpkin, it is…
