Factory farming conditions and antibiotic-resistant pathogens emerging as a result of them pose an existential threat to humans in the form of zoonotic diseases. Why it’s time to produce and consume food more thoughtfully.
Lentil and turmeric quiche
You just need two fistful of lentils, some seasonal vegetable and a pinch of turmeric to prepare one of the most original quiche stuffings ever!
1 sheet of round-shaped fillo dough
150 g of lentils
120 ml of crème fraîche
2 spoonful of rice milk
1 teaspoonful of powdered turmeric
extra virgin olive oil
Soak the dry lentils overnight. Drain the following the day. Cook the lentils in half a litre of salty water for about 20 minutes. Drain them. They shouldn’t be completely cooked. Heat the oil over medium heat in the same pot with finely minced onion. Add minced carrot and leek and season with salt. Sautée in a pan for 5 minutes or until the onion are golden brown. Add the lentils and cook over low heat with a spoonful of water for 2 minutes more.
Preheat the oven to 180° C.
Place the sheet of fillo dough in a bakng tray and perforate it with a fork. In a bowl mix the lentil and vegetable mixture with the crème fraîche, rice milk and turmeric, adding salt and pepper to taste. Blend well. Pour half of this mixture into the tray, on the fillo dough, even out the stuffing and then pour the other half. Even out again and bake for 20-25 minutes until the dough is golden brown. Serve lukewarm.
The world of cinema recognises the link between food choices and the climate crisis by offering vegan menus for awards season events, including at the most important of them all: the Oscars.
A creative recipe for a hot, cleansing, colourful and tasty mixed bean soup.
Let’s look at the reasons behind the growth of veganism in India, as a small yet vocal section of the population turns towards this diet and lifestyle in the largest milk producing country in the world.
In an increasingly uncertain world, we need food production systems that can cope with dramatic climatic variations, provide nutritious diets, and build the resilience of communities and landscapes.
Mint has many health benefits, but in food it’s often accompanied by artificial green colourings. Instead, Galatea has created a green mint ice cream in a completely natural way.
We’re talking about Galatea, a company that produces semi-finished products for artisanal ice creams using high quality ingredients, natural colouring, excluding thickeners and hydrogenated fats, respecting the environment and supporting the less fortunate.
The mad rush to fake food, like fake meat made with genetically-modified soy, ignores the importance of the diversity of our foods and culinary cultures. It’s a recipe to accelerate the destruction of the Planet and our health.
Like with all foods, the quality of an ice cream can be discerned by reading its label. An expert explains how to do this, and tells us how their company steers clear of chemicals, using only natural ingredients to produce an excellent and “free” ice cream.
