Buckwheat pancakes (Dutch style)

buckwheat pancakes - karlijnskitchen.com

The recipe that I want to share with you is so simple that it hardly isn’t worth writing down. It is a recipe for Dutch style buckwheat pancakes! The reason that I call them Dutch style pancakes is because they are much thinner than the usual pancakes in other countries. Dutch pancakes are slightly thicker as crepes. This recipe really became one of my favourites.

A super easy recipe, but it is so tasty to have for a healthy lunch or light dinner.

Low FODMAP Tomato soup with meatballs

I felt like eating tomato soup with meatballs all week. This isn’t a normal feeling for me during spring. Because usually, I don’t eat soup so often in the warmer seasons. But guess what, it feels like winter here. Last week when I was cycling to work in the morning, it was -2! I took out my winter coat and gloves again, ugh. This kind of weather totally justifies eating soup and because I didn’t have a recipe for low FODMAP tomato soup on my blog yet, I created one for you.

Low FODMAP Egg salad

It seems a bit stupid to share a recipe for egg salad right after Easter, but I was really craving egg salad in the week after Easter. I don’t like egg salad from the supermarket at all, but I love it when it is homemade. It is good to eat as a snack on a rice cracker or for lunch on sourdough spelt bread. I made this low FODMAP egg salad slightly lighter because I didn’t use as much mayonnaise as egg salad recipes do normally, but you really don’t taste the difference. It still is super tasty!

Low FODMAP poached egg sandwich with smoked salmon

This is so tasty! If a restaurant has a sandwich with poached egg and salmon on the menu and they have low FODMAP bread, I always order it. The combination of poached egg and smoked salmon is just amazing. Especially when there is also some avocado on the sandwich (1/8 avocado is low FODMAP, so a thin spread of avocado on a sandwich is safe to eat). Last weekend, I finally made a low FODMAP poached egg sandwich with smoked salmon at home. A perfect Easter recipe!

Scrambled Tofu (low FODMAP, gluten-free, lactose-free, vegan)

scrambled tofu - karlijnskitchen.com

I kept seeing this dish on Pinterest, but I never tried it myself. Scrambled tofu is the vegan variation on scrambled eggs. I was very curious what this dish would taste like, so I created my own version. Of course, tofu doesn’t taste the same as eggs, but this scrambled tofu does look exactly like scrambled eggs if you ask me, especially when you use some turmeric to flavour the tofu. And even though the scrambled tofu doesn’t taste exactly like eggs, I think it is very tasty.

Barbeque Tempeh Sandwich (Gluten-free, dairy-free, vegan)

barbeque tempeh sandwich - karlijnskitchen.com

There was a time where I believed that eating vegan was boring and that you had to eat the same things all the time. By now, I have found out that there are many vegan meals that are very tasty and that even the biggest meat-eaters will like them. This sandwich is one of those. Doesn’t this look mouthwatering! It looks like this sandwich has thick slices of bacon on it. But nothing is further from the truth because this is a barbeque tempeh sandwich. Low FODMAP, gluten-free, dairy-free and vegan.
