Summer Purslane & Asparagus Quiche

La Cuisine d'Eli

This might just be the creamiest, tastiest quiche I’ve ever made or eaten. More about that soon, but first a little ramble about plants.

For my  birthday, last month, Pim gave me a whole family of succulents, in different colours, shapes and sizes. Having plants around purportedly makes people happier, healthier and less stressed. I haven’t taken the time to monitor my blood pressure or cholesterol levels before and after getting them, so I can’t officially confirm any physical health claims, but I definitely do feel a little jolt of happiness every time I glance over at my window sill. I sometimes dream of having a slightly bigger apartment, which I could then fill entirely with plants. Would that make me a crazy plant lady? Considering I have named all my current plants, it probably would. At the same time, I also dream of having several cats, so it could…

Avocado & Cashew Pesto Pasta

1

beets & booze

IMG_4105.JPG

This pasta makes a quick and delicious midweek dinner. The pesto is very easy to make and goes really well with mushrooms and courgette but you can add any other veg you fancy.

For non-vegans, this pasta would also go really well with prawns.

The best thing about this recipe is that you don’t have to cook the sauce, which normally is the longest process.

It really is very easy and so delicious!

Creamy mushroom and asparagus vegan pasta

Maria's Vegan Kitchen

A new world is upon me! I discovered cashew based sauces and nothing will ever be the same.

Was I skeptical about this? Yes. Was I proven wrong by how good, deliciously creamy and cheese tasting the sauce turned out? 100%.

Without further ado, here’s how to turn your ‘cheesy’ dreams into a vegan reality.

  • 1 shallot/onion

Cashew sauce

  • 1 cup cashews (soaked over night for best results)

Scientists Create Artificial Womb That Could Help Prematurely Born Babies – What are your thoughts?

Adidas Wilson

Scientists have created an “artificial womb” in the hopes of someday using the device to save babies born extremely prematurely.

So far the device has only been tested on fetal lambs. A study published Tuesday involving eight animals found the device appears effective at enabling very premature fetuses to develop normally for about a month.

“We’ve been extremely successful in replacing the conditions in the womb in our lamb model,” says Alan Flake, a fetal surgeon at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia who led the study published in the journal Nature Communications.

“They’ve had normal growth. They’ve had normal lung maturation. They’ve had normal brain maturation. They’ve had normal development in every way that we can measure it,” Flake says.

Flake says the group hopes to test the device on very premature human babies within three to five years.

“What we tried to do is develop a system that mimics…
