Super Light Creamy Indian Prawn Curry

In spite of what the above photograph might suggest, this creamy curry contains no coconut milk nor cream. The first yogurt-based curry I’ve ever tasted! The recipe is inspired by a fish curry cooked by a talented Indian grandmother, whom I have been following for some time in fascinating Myna Street Food videos. As you can…Continue Reading “Super Light Creamy Indian Prawn Curry”

Filo Rolls with Buckwheat (Groats) and Mushrooms

If you like Japanese soba noodles and don’t mind a typical coarse texture of certain grains, you might be tempted to test this combination of buckwheat and mushrooms in crisp thin layers of Greek filo rolls. I can only hope you will love the results as much as I did. If you have never tasted buckwheat, forget all the health benefits…Continue Reading “Filo Rolls with Buckwheat (Groats) and Mushrooms”

Baked Damson Plums with Yogurt

So simple and soooo good! I wish I could say this more often about the dishes I love… I made this improvised sweet treat last weekend after bringing a big bag of my favourite plums and was really surprised to discover how excellent such an easy and quick dessert turned out. The same recipe can be made with any stone fruit,…Continue Reading “Baked Damson Plums with Yogurt”

Greek Yogurt and Chocolate Mousse with Cherries

This year, thanks to favourable weather conditions, cherries have appeared in France and Switzerland early, so I have been enjoying them for quite a long time. This refreshing slightly tangy dessert keeps them raw, untransformed, preserving not only their taste, but, I guess, much of the precious vitamin C. Obviously, they make a perfect pair with dark chocolate. The photograph you…Continue Reading “Greek Yogurt and Chocolate Mousse with Cherries”

Light Unbaked Cheesecake/Greek Yogurt Mousse with Sour Cherries

I have a big passion for black sour cherries. I don’t talk about the mouth-puckering, early light red cherries with transparent flesh. I mean the dark red fruits, with a deep serious elegant taste, impossible to confound with any other variety: the ones used in the famous schwarzwälder kirschtorte, kirsch and other products, where sweet…Continue Reading “Light Unbaked Cheesecake/Greek Yogurt Mousse with Sour Cherries”

Light Unbaked Cheesecake/Greek Yogurt Mousse with Passion fruit

Bored with lemons, oranges, apples and pears, I decided to experiment with something more exotic and discovered a new passion for the… passion fruit. Passion fruit macarons are one of my beloved Pierre Hermé’s creations, passion fruit chocolates are made by many chocolatiers in my city, passion fruit daiquiri is one of my favourite cocktails… and…Continue Reading “Light Unbaked Cheesecake/Greek Yogurt Mousse with Passion fruit”

Light Unbaked Blueberry Cheesecake/Greek Yogurt Mousse with Blueberries

I hope you are not bored with my desserts in glasses. I simply cannot help it: it’s hot and instead of cakes or biscuits, I crave fruity, light, refreshing – and most of all easy – desserts just like this one and am tempted to experiment with different seasonal fruits, hence this blueberry version of…Continue Reading “Light Unbaked Blueberry Cheesecake/Greek Yogurt Mousse with Blueberries”

Light Unbaked Strawberry Cheesecake/Greek Yogurt Mousse with Strawberries

Light, quick, easy and refreshing. I don’t know what are your preferences, but this is the description of my ideal spring or summer dessert and unbaked cheesecake meets all these conditions. Some of you might remember that my unbaked cheesecakes are made with fresh cheese (also called “quark”) and not the most popular cream cheese (see…Continue Reading “Light Unbaked Strawberry Cheesecake/Greek Yogurt Mousse with Strawberries”

Light Unbaked Cheesecake/Greek Yogurt Mousse with Vanilla

Unbaked cheesecake is the oldest of all the light desserts I know. The one I make is refreshing, has a mousse-like texture and a very pleasant slight tanginess. When two weeks ago Charles from 5 Euro Food posted a luscious Prickly Pear Cheesecake recipe, I decided that since most bloggers I know prepare no-bake cheesecakes with…Continue Reading “Light Unbaked Cheesecake/Greek Yogurt Mousse with Vanilla”
