Trick or Treat ? Well the answer is quite simple : Plant-Based and Gluten-Free treats please !!!

Black Beans and Sweet Potato Burgers:
When I was in New York this Summer I fell in love with By Chloe, a vegan restaurant founded by Chloe Coscarelli, here you can find a great variety of delicious vegan burgers. My favourite one is “The Guac Burger” made with beans, avocado and sweet potato. This weekend I organised a vegan brunch with my girlfriends and I tried to remake it in my kitchen.

I love quinoa especially because it is a very good source of plant-based protein, vitamin B and magnesium. This super grain is also free from gluten, therefore it’s perfect if you have a sensibility to gluten or if you just want to avoid it.
