QUINOA CASSEROLE WITH PARSLEY CAULIFLOWER CASHEW CHEESE SAUCE πŸ₯•πŸ†

The past few weeks life has been very hectic. While most of you are in lockdown, our pop-up, mobile tuk-tuk bakery has been running at full speed. Now more then ever people are relying on staple foods - such as bread - that can easily be picked up or delivered and enjoyed at home.

Long working days combined with the extreme heat have kept me away from my computer. After coming home, taking a shower, and cooking for my hubby and myself, I didn’t feel like doing a lot more.

Also, constantly having the wear a mouth mask while temperatures are around 40C or 104F and humidity is around 60 to 70% is very tiring. Believe me.

In Cambodia, however, corona doesn’t seem to strike that hard compared to my home country Belgium and many other countries across the world. According to some scientists, we have this extreme heat to thank for the low infection rate (122 reported cases and no deaths reported so far).

I hope you and your families are all in good health and not going too crazy to be locked up. Stay strong and nourish your body with nutrient-dense plant foods to boost your health and happiness.
