Adri’s Veggie Arepas | Le Arepas di Adri

Adri’s Veggie Arepas :

After a few weeks of break, I’m back on track and I can’t wait to share many new super yummy recipes with you guys. Since I came back from my Easter holidays,  I have been really busy with school and I had no time to post on the blog any recipe or the pictures of my amazing Spring Break trip to Hawaii. Now that I have more free time I can’t wait to write many new posts for you. I will start with the recipe for the famous Arepas created by my lovely friend Adriana. Arepas are a typical Venezuelan dish made with corn flour and stuffed with different fillings like: cheese,vegetables, avocado or meat. To add more nutrients and taste to the arepas, we decided to combine the classic dough with spinach (green arepas), carrots (orange arepas), beetroot (pinky arepas) and black beans (purple arepas).

Meri’s Guide to LA:

Last weekend I had the chance to visit Los Angeles, which is located just 1 hour by plane from San Francisco. Los Angeles is probably the “healthiest” city in the US. In LA you can find plenty of restaurants serving plant-based and organic dishes, there are also many juice bars and yoga studios. Last weekend the weather was really nice and I went running every day with my brothers Giulio and Giacomo. If you have the chance to visit California then you have to go to LA and enjoy its amazing vibe.

Broccoli, Courgette and Mint Soup | Vellutata di Broccoli, Zucchine e Menta

Broccoli, Courgette and Mint Soup:

I am a very big fan of soups, whenever I have guests coming over for dinner I serve a nourishing and tasty soup as a starter followed by my healthy version of a classic Greek salad or by my signature veggie frittata. This green soup is very easy to prepare and I personally love to add fresh mint leaves to make it more tasty and delicious. Broccoli are a very good source of vitamin K and A, that combined can help the body to keep the vitamin D metabolism in balance. In addition broccoli are very high in vitamin C, that can really help to fight skin damage caused by pollution and sun exposure. I like to serve this soup with a delicious cashew cream which makes it even more rich and tasty.
