Lovely spring is here, finally! Even though the weather is not just as warm as I would like it to be, I’m still happy to see the sun and be able to walk in the park without freezing to death! 🙂 Leafy greens are now abundant at the farmers’ markets and my fridge is vibrant green, filled with wild garlic, baby spinach, watercress, lettuce and arugula! Oh..I love this season. It’s so vegan friendly!
I started cooking more and the light is just perfect for taking photos these days. I have over 10 recipes prepared to share with you. Some of them were beyond my expectations! They are simply some recipes to remember and cook over and over again.

- 500g (17.5oz) frozen green peas
- 1 small sweet onion, julienned

- Avocado Mayo:
- 2 ripe avocados
- 2 Tbsps mustard
- ½ lemon's juice
- 4 Tbsps extravirgin olive oil

- Steam frozen peas using a steamer (15 minutes). Steamed peas is sweeter and looks better than boiled peas, so I would strongly recommend steaming it instead of boiling.
