- 1/2 glass of sunflower seed mustard
- 1/2 glass of pumpkin seed mustard
- 1/2 glass sesame seed mustard
- 1/4 glass of flaxseed mustard
- 1/2 glass of corn or buckwheat flour mustard
- 2 tablespoons rapeseed oil (or walnut or sesame oil)
- 1 heaped teaspoon of turmeric powder
- 1 level teaspoon of salt
- Black pepper to taste
- 1 glass of boiling water mustard
- Assemble all the dry ingredients together.
- Mix well and pour boiling water over them.
- Leave to rest while you preheat your oven to 170°.
- Spread the dough in a thin baking sheet between two sheets of baking paper. Remove the top sheet and bake for 15 to 25 minutes, depending on your oven.
- The baking sheets should be dry and crispy when taken out of the oven, but not burnt. Let them cool before breaking them.
Storage tip: crackers keep very well for several days in a tin can or in an airtight glass jar.
Cream of carrot and roasted mushrooms
- Mushrooms of Paris
- Olive oil
- Lacto-fermented tofu (optional)
Preheat your oven to 180°, then bake separately:
- Carrots cut into large slices, with a drizzle of olive oil, salt, cumin, 1/2 squeezed orange.
- Leave to cook until the carrots are melting and slightly caramelized.
- Blend the carrots with their cooking juices until a cream is obtained. If the cream is too liquid to your taste, you can add a little plain lacto-fermented tofu. This will add texture and extra protein to your preparation. Add salt and pepper to taste.
Preservation tip: this preparation can easily be kept for three days in the fridge. Don't hesitate to make large quantities to save energy and time.
- Wash the button mushrooms.
Sprinkle them with a drizzle of olive oil and tamari, then massage them.
- Leave to cook until the mushrooms have reduced by half and have a lacquered appearance. Reserve the mushrooms.
Sesame spinach and steamed cauliflower/broccoli
- Fresh spinach
- Sesame oil
- Roasted sesame seeds
- Cauliflower and/or broccoli
- Wash and remove the stems from the fresh spinach.
- Heat some toasted sesame oil in a frying pan.
- As soon as the oil is hot, throw two handfuls of fresh spinach into the pan, add a pinch of salt and stir with a wooden spatula. The spinach will "fall off" when it is hot.
- As soon as it has melted, remove it from the pan and let it drain in a colander.
- Once drained, season with a drizzle of toasted sesame oil and sprinkle with roasted sesame seeds.
- Separate the cauliflower and/or broccoli into florets.
- Steam for a few minutes. The broccoli should turn very green (which will take a short time) and the cauliflower should turn more "beige" (which is a little longer).
All you have to do is put all these elements together and arrange them on a nice plate when you have finished preparing all these foods. Colorful and attractive rendering guaranteed!
The benefits of the ingredients
- Sesame seeds and spices: Sesame seeds, like flax seeds and sunflower seeds, are excellent sources of minerals and fatty acids, especially omega 3, 6 and 9. Consuming these different types of seeds allows you to benefit from each of their intrinsic qualities. As for spices such as cumin, turmeric and black pepper, they are incredible sources of antioxidants. They are beneficial for the health of the skin and the body in general, because these concentrates of active ingredients act on different metabolisms of the body such as its defense against oxidative stress.
- Carrot: this vegetable is rich in beta-carotene, lutein and zeaxanthin, which are powerful antioxidants that also contribute to skin pigmentation. These active ingredients protect the skin from cellular aging due to oxidative stress.
- Mushrooms: rich in B vitamins, they are also an excellent source of proteins and minerals such as zinc, selenium and iron. This vegetable participates in improving microcirculation while providing the necessary elements for skin structure.
- Spinach: these leafy vegetables help to improve skin microcirculation through their nitrate composition. The consumption of spinach will stimulate the cellular nutrition of the skin, improve the creation of new blood vessels and contribute to the transport of oxygen by the blood, thanks to its richness in iron.
- Cauliflower and broccoli: these cruciferous plants are rich in antioxidants and vitamin C. They provide the elements necessary for the skin to fight against premature cellular ageing due to oxidative stress.
- Vegetable oils (rapeseed oil, olive oil, sunflower oil, hemp oil, linseed oil): are known to be sources of vitamin E and fatty acids, such as omega 3, 6 and 9. The balance of its elements can vary from one oil to another, but what prevails is the quality of the oil (first cold pressing) and the diversity. The fatty acids will strengthen the skin's barrier, which will preserve its hydration, essential to maintain its youthfulness.
