FOOD : weirdly healthy + easy late night snacks

comments 9


let’s go – 3 easy as can be late night snacks, each with some weirdly healthy attribute.
organic soy yogurt, turmeric, brussels sprout, nutritional yeast, anti-inflammatory, dna-protective, probiotic – you name it, it’s in there ^.^

i hope these snack ideas can help you with those late night cravings and at the same time fill you up with some lovely vegan plant power nutrients. plus, they’re so easy to make ! no complicated baked desserts or anything like that.

here is the recipe for homemade soy yogurt if you’re interested.
you do need some kind of started, but after the first batch, you’ve got the ball rolling. in theory, you could just trust that the bacteria in your kitchen are the right little helpers and try making it without any started culture, but you risk ruining the batch if the wrong guys take over. up to you if you want to take the risk, but please be careful !

to roast the brussel sprouts, i just heat the oven to about 200°C or 400°F, and roast for about 15-20 minutes depending on the size of the sprouts.
and like i mention in the video – if you’re not a fan of brussels sprout, you can try roasting other things like kale chips, chickpeas, cauliflower or whatever you fancy. but i seriously recommend you trying these brussels sprout even if you’re not previously a fan, because oh man are they yummy !


ooh, and by the way, you guys always ask me about my kitchen equipment, so here’s a list of some of the things i’m using in this video and which brands their made by :
– eva solo black pot, grater, colander*
– connox knife, teaspoons, cutting board*
– holmegaard cocktail glasses*
– ikea glass mug
– kähler ceramic bowl and plate*
*sponsored products

let me know if i’ve missed anything that you want to know where it’s from !

  1. Ohmygods I’m so trying roasted brussel sprouts. Love them boiled and steamed, but I’ve never tried to roast them!

  2. Hi Jenny, i dont understand what species do you add to brussel sprouts, you talk about something which is vegan best friend but I don’t get what you are actually saying :( could you write it down? or somebody who is reading it? Sorry, its because my english isn’t that good :) thank you in advanve :*

    I’ve been digging into your super healthy granola along with some plain Kalona Supernatural cream top organic yogurt “made the European way” :) and that’s been my go-to late night snack all week long! I’ve even shared your recipe for granola with my bestie who plans to make it, too. Love your recipes a lot, and I’ll be trying these next; that marizipan mylk looks freaking amazeballs…thanks!

  4. Looks delish! Want to try out the brussel sprouts!
    Just wanted to ask as well, can you do a video on school/uni snacks and lunchmeals that would be easy to take to school? I just moved to Berlin and started Uni but I am not a creative cook so haha ;)

    All the love ^^

  5. I am only now discovering your beautiful contemporary vegan world, and I absolutely love all your creations. I must try these snacky creations! Will you have an English cookbook published any time soon or in the new year?
    Have a beautiful day! ❤️

  6. Yum yum yum! I would eat all of these. I especially love Brussels sprouts. Last night I ate dinner too early and, because I couldn’t sleep, I got very hungry in the middle of the night. I got up and ate some brown rice, but I wish I’d thought of hot milk with turmeric. (I only have almond milk around, but I’m sure it would be good.) I need to get more turmeric into my diet because I’ve developed a (fairly mild) rheumatological disorder that makes my hands hurt and I need to reduce my bodily inflammation. Turmeric is wonderful for that.

  7. I love nutritional yeast and add it to everything (I’m not even vegan!); but aren’t most of the health benefits depleted when it’s heated above a certain temperature? I usually add at the end once I take my food off the heat. Either way – I’m so with you on brussel sprouts! Air popped popcorn (or buckwheat) with yeast is great, too – people forget that it’s a fantastic whole grain. It got a bad reputation when people started drenching it in butter and salt.

  8. WOW! Just take a look at that snack! It is so mouth-watering, so I cannot stop myself from checking my fridge for appropriate products and start cooking. Great post, thanks for sharing!
