My Version of France

Jul 16, 2018

When I share with fellow Americans that I am spending a month in France I can only imagine what must come to mind. Images of bustling outdoor cafes, rich meals, baguettes, pastries, exquisite cheeses, shopping and yes some of the best wines in the world. While there is nothing wrong with this part of French culture, if you know me at all, you can guess that this would not be my French experience, 😉 There was a time, twenty five…

Herbed Polenta

Jul 16, 2018

I love to work with recipes that are easily modified and polenta certainly fits in that category. This particular version can be eaten creamy almost porridge like or firm and cut into slices. Even the slices themselves can be served as is, pan roasted in a small amount of olive oil, grilled briefly on a bbq or under an oven broiler. As you can see, there are plenty of options to choose from and you will want to select a…

A Gemmotherapy Immersion Retreat in the Pyrenees

Jul 11, 2018

As I entered the gated entrance to La Maison du Cedre, I sensed an unfamiliar apprehension. While I normally embrace new teaching experiences, this would be my first time teaching in France. Questions swirled within me of what and who might lie ahead. Before these seeds of doubt could take their grip I came across a small gathering of women. I soon realized that these were some of the very women who would be forming our retreat community for the…

Building Your Plant Based Kitchen – Immersion Blender

Jan 8, 2016

There are a handful of tools I put to work everyday in my kitchen. While my Vitamix is put to test for every morning meal, the immersion blender rules each evening. I use it for every salad dressing, soup, and most sauces I make. It’s a brilliant tool, cleans in seconds, stows away easily in a drawer, and is up to a wide variety of tasks. I have burned through a few models since my obsession began some fifteen years…

Nut and Seed Bread

Jul 11, 2018 | 2 Comments

I’ve shared this simple and satisfying gluten free bread recipe in a previous blog post. However, it absolutely deserves a place of honor on it’s own. What I love so much about this recipe is how easily it can be modified, mixed together in a flash, and is so delish! All the nuts and seeds are interchangeable and the oats can be subbed out for Buckwheat flour, Quinoa or Millet Flakes. Now that my retreat has come to a close I look forward to experimenting with the wide variety of gluten free and grain free flours available locally in Lavelanet. You’ll want to follow me @laurenhubele on Instagram where I will share my results. With our flipped work schedule here…

Notes From Europe

Jul 4, 2018 | 0 Comments

Although I had viewed countless times the address of our home for the month of July on Google maps, nothing quite prepared me for the narrow ascending gravel road that lay before us. Yes, I knew that the farmhouse was located just outside the local village on a dead-end road, but this incline was something I clearly missed. Grateful Joachim was at the wheel, I found myself holding my breath as he shifted gears and the tires struggled to maintain traction. In all the details I had investigated, here was one I had somehow ignored. I am the big picture planner in our partnership; he usually attends to the details and this was one we both had missed. The house…

Lauren’s Aubergine, Tomatoes, and Mushrooms

Jul 4, 2018 | 0 Comments

This is my go to summer dish when eggplant is at it’s peak, everyone is hungry, and dinner needs to appear with the wave of my magic wand. From start to finish this can be on the table in 40 minutes or left to simmer longer if you desire. Ingredients 2 medium sized eggplant (select only those with shiny skins that are firm to touch), cut into cubes, salt and put in a wire sieve over a bowl to drain away excess liquid. Blot cubes dry with paper toweling just prior to cooking. 3-4 large garden fresh tomatoes cut into large chunks or two baskets of cherry tomatoes, leave whole or quartered. 1lb of mushrooms sliced 4 shallots, peeled and…
