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.
Baked potatoes with herb sauce and sprouts
A healthy and creative spin on the classic baked potato.
Ingredients for 4 servings
4 medium-size new potatoes
mixed sprouts to taste (alfalfa, clover, soy, radish, mustard, lentil sprouts)
For the sauce:
1 cup of pine nuts
6 spoonful of minced parsley
6 spoonful of minced basil
6 spoonful of minced arugula
6 poonful of grated Parmesan cheese
2 spoonful of fresh lemon juice
1 little clove of garlic
salt to taste
extra virgin olive oil
Preheat the oven at 180 degrees. Clean the potatoes and slice them thinly without peeling them. Put them on the dripping pan covered with greaseproof paper. Pour a little extra virgin olive oil. Cook for 20 minutes on both sides until golden brown.
While you cook the potatoes, prepare the sauce. In a food processor mix herbs with the other ingredients (pine nuts, Parmesan cheese, garlic, lemon juice, oil and a pinch of salt). Blend until smooth.
When the potatoes are baked, put a spoonful of sauce on each slice and sprinkle with sprouts. Serve immediately.
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.
Stuffed peppers and tomatoes: a tasty dish that children love. Here’s a colourful, meat-free recipe.
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.
