If you are a foodie and in particular a healthy foodie, you have to check out Green Kitchen Stories, a vegetarian recipe blog with some of the most beautiful food photos I have ever seen. Created by David Frenkiel and Liuise Vindahl, the blog features healthy and simple vegetarian food with natural ingredients, whole grains, good fats, fruit and vegetables.
They have two amazing apps that are user friendly and gorgeous to look at. You can check them out here. One app feature vegetarian meals, desserts and snacks and the other focuses on delicious desserts. I downloaded the dessert app this week and couldn’t wait to make this chia cardamon pudding. I made half a batch and it was plenty for one meal (I would even say it’s enough for 2 portions). I strongly encourage you to follow David (gkstories) and Luise (luisegreenkitchenstories) on their Instagram accounts to see their latest recipes but also to admire photos of their amazing travels around the world.
6 tbsp chia seeds
700 ml plant milk of choice (I used almond milk)
2 fresh soft medjool-like dates, pitted
1 tbsp coconut oil, room temperature
1 pinch salt
1/2 tsp vanilla extract or ground vanilla
1/2 tsp ground cardamon
1/2 tsp ground ginger
Place chia seeds in a lage bowl and set aside.
Add plant milk and the rest of the ingredients in a blender. Blend on high speed until smooth.
Pour the milk mixture over the chia seeds, whisk to combine.
Whisk ever 5 minutes for about 15 minutes, then place in the fridge over night (this part is important as it allows the chia seeds to soak and not be crunchy anymore).
Serve chilled in bowls topped with berries (I used pomegranate) and finely chopped pistachio nuts.
