We are back in Nairobi and I finally found the time to upload all the pictures from Italy of our family Easter lunch. This salad was the perfect opening for a great Easter meal. Spring was definitely not in the air in Brescia during our stay, rain was our companion almost every day….but Easter day was a glorious sunny day. This colorful salad worked perfectly well with the tulips to make the table look like a garden. Kids had their fun as well by painting eggs and entertaining grandparents.

Which is your favorite variety of artichoke? My favorite is the Spinoso Sardo or Ingauno or Spined, the ones in the picture. Then you have Verde Palermo, Catanese, Niscemese, Romanesco, Violetta di Chioggia those are only few of the Italian varieties, there are so many more on the market. My father is from Sardegna, where they grow the spined variety. I started eating artichokes at a really young age and my love for this vegetable/flower never stopped. I love artichokes simply sliced topped with orange wedges and radish as a light salad, in the picture above, just raw enjoying every bit for every leaves till you get to the heart and the sweetness of it will capture you. You can as well simply boil it or like in the recipe pair with potatoes, an easy and fast side dish that can turn in a vegetarian meal. Earthy flavor of Sardegna and if you cannot get to the original tough luck,……just joking…….enjoy it with the many varieties that I mention above.

What is your favorite pasta shape? In our house is spaghetti after liking penne, conchiglie, tortiglioni, gnocchetti sardi, tagliatelle, pappardelle and the list could go on and on and on….. I think the kids are truly enjoying spaghetti because they can showcase the proper way to eat them without using a spoon….they said that it is an art to eat spaghetti…
This recipe was a last minute quick dinner idea. Kids were hungry and didn’t want to wait for daddy to come home from office. I bought fresh peas few days back and steamed them to add in salads. Little one would eat peas everyday lately and what better way to enjoy it than with dairy free cream saffron and their favorite pasta? And this is how this recipe came to life.

Ratatouille, not the amazing cartoon, but this delicious meal full of earthy flavor.
Kids and I have been watching or better saying rewatching Ratatouille lately and decided to make ratatouille, but hubby needs more than vegetables on his plate and buckwheat is one of our favorite grain at the moment.
Buckwheat has this nutty taste that goes really well with beefsteak tomatoes, zucchini, eggplants and potatoes. Look at this colorful and healthy meal all in one baking dish…. not so much to wash at the end….miss my dishwasher….
Add your favorite fresh herb, mine is thyme, slice few cloves of garlic and bake it.
I finish my ratatouille with few tablespoons of breadcrumbs…and its ready.
