Klara lives in Herenberg, southern Germany. She studied fashion and is a keen traveler. But most of all she loves being in the kitchen to bake , cook or make jam. She dreams of opening a little cafe.  She is currently working on her own blog. Her healthy spin on food is full of creative combinations and I would love to hang out in her kitchen if we were neighbors. her food is vegan and vegetarian.

Hi Klara, tell me about your Instagram feed.
-  In my account I want to show what I love. healthy and delicious vegan and vegetarian food. and you get so many wonderful inspirations and suggestions. It´s fantastic.

This looks so tasty and sunny, how did you come up with the recipe?
- I came up with the idea because I love cashews and sharp eat. And so I've been thinking how I can bring both together.
Through the lightly roasted nuts gets the pesto a wonderful taste. And the colors harmonize beautifully together. green, red and yellow!

How should I serve it?
-  it fits with pasta but also with zoodles or served on crispy baked bread. Very delicious!
