2. Seasonal Vegetable Stew, a healthy recipe from the Spanish garden

Vegetables stew

An updated version of the classic Vegetable stew recipe or "Menestra de verduras". In this recipe, I have used a selection of typical vegetables from the Spanish garden, such as courgette, broad beans, asparagus, artichokes or fresh beans, to create a delicious blend of flavours and textures that will delight your taste buds

3. How to Make Marinated Olives: A Simple Recipe with Big Flavor

4. Andalusian "Sopa Perota" Recipe: Traditional soup with fresh ingredients and authentic flavours

Sopa Perota

A special vegan soup you've likely never heard of or tasted. This recipe is quick, easy, and inexpensive; you only need a selection of garden vegetables and hard bread from the day before as the original recipe.

5. Thistle with Almonds, a Christmas meal you may not know about

This vegan stew, made with thistle, almonds and other vegetables from the garden, is typical in many parts of Spain, especially in Aragon, Rioja and Navarra.

This chilled soup bursts with sweet and tangy flavours, making it the perfect way to enjoy summer fruits. Quick and easy to make, it's a great appetizer or light meal.

I've put a spin on the classic Spanish pickled vegetable skewer "Banderilla," using a part of broccoli almost no one uses, the stems.

8. Red Cabbage and Pecan salad

Unique and vibrant winter salad combines the sweetness of red cabbage, the freshness of carrots, and the crunchy texture of pecan nuts and pomegranate seeds.

9. How to make one of the oldest Spanish recipes. Almond Soup with Garlic and Grapes.“Ajo Blanco con Uvas”

Ajo blanco soup

It is considered the firstborn of the Andalusian gazpacho since it is based on bread, oil, and garlic. Almonds, salt, and vinegar are usually added as other ingredients depending on the region.

10. Sautéed Wild Mushroom with Fried Sage
