1/2 Cup Of Shredded Coconut

1/4 Cup Of Sesame Seeds

1 Cup Of Tahini

1/3 Cup Of Honey

This is by far my very ‘picky’ older son’s favorite salad. It’s packed with nutrients, it’s vegetarian, vegan, also dairy free and gluten free.

What more can you ask?


  • 1 large head of broccoli cut in small pieces (florets and stems)
  • 1/2 cup to 1 of shredded carrot
  • 1/4 to 1/2 cup dried cranberries
  • 1tbsp red onion chopped small
  • 2 to 3 tbsp toasted sesame seeds
  • salt and pepper


  • 3 Tbsp orange juice
  • 1 Tbsp apple vinegar
  • 1 Tbsp mustard
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1 Tbsp liquid honey

It has been hard for everyone to be stuck at home for so many days. We don’t know how many more days we will have to live like this but in the meantime, we all have to try to keep our spirits up and our minds and bodies stress-free, by doing things that we like, together, even if that means virtually. Thankfully we have access to plenty of technology, which is making this difficult time a little easier to deal with.

There have been lots of people offering all kinds of virtual classes recently. The other day my husband suggested I do a cooking demonstration of a dish that can be easily made for dinner by everyone, with a few simple ingredients that most likely will be in everybody’s pantry!
I thought it was a fun thing to do since I have to cook anyway (as most of us) for lunch and dinner, every single day. It’s hard after a while to come up with new dishes to keep the ‘menu interesting and varied’, right? 

So here is an idea for an easy and delicious dinner for Monday.

Pasta with Tuna and Crushed Tomatoes and lemon zest

Ingredients you will need:

  • 1 pound of any shaped short pasta (such as penne, rigatoni or farfalle)

  • 1 small can of crushed tomatoes

  • 1 can of tuna (can be substituted with canned mackerel as well)

  • 1 small onion or 2 cloves of garlic

  • 1 lemon ( juice + zest )

  • 2 tbsp of capers (optional)

  • Fresh parsley or basil

  • Pinch of turmeric powder

  • Salt

  • pepper

You will also need:

  • Cutting board

  • Chef Knife

  • Large pot for boiling pasta

  • 1 pot or pan for the sauce

  • Can opener

  • Grater for lemon zest
