Those of you who are regular followers of my blog might have already noticed a new badge on my website. This badge recognizes my work as an official contributor to Expo worldrecipes, the official global cookbook of Expo Milano 2015.
I felt very glad and honored when the Expo Milano 2015 invited me to be part of the Expo worldrecipes community, as this allows me to share my passion for food with foodies of all over the world. And it is also great that they have displayed my “Vegan Spanish Paella” recipe on their homepage, I hope it will allow plenty of people to enjoy a vegan version of the typical Spanish paella.
This nice recognition of my work encourages me to keep on sharing healthy recipes with you.
Today’s recipe is a homemade olive oil mayonnaise. You only need 3 minutes and 4 ingredients and it is so easy to make that you will not want to go back to the store bought ones.
