People with a vegetable garden will know: as soon as you have sown spinach, it will come up after three blinks. A good vegetable garden vegetable for people without patience. Another nice bonus is that the green leafy vegetables are packed with vitamins A, B11 and K. So a powerhouse. Make this quick chicken noodle soup with it and you’re set for that nasty spring cold.

Although we think the stew and casserole season is coming to an end, when the sun is shining we still like to put a casserole with sweet potato on the table. Very strange, but the orange version of the beeper almost makes the sun shine; it tastes so sunny. This casserole with sweet potato, spinach and minced meat is a welcome hot meal this week’s menu. Another advantage: you can put it on the table in no time.

Never heard of Turkish pide, let alone eaten it? Dive into the kitchen now, it’s not difficult to make at all. Another nice bonus: one bite of this pide and you will find yourself in the exotic streets of Istanbul – but without jet lag and the souvenir shops.
