good taste above all. 

Beet, orange, carrot, hispi & herbs. Mouthwatering!


Our food is prepared with whole, unprocessed and where possible organic plantbased ingredients.

PULSE plantbased homecooking is all about the varieties of pulses, grains, seeds, nuts, vegetables, herbs, plants, fruits and mushrooms. We don’t serve dairy or eggs. 


We strive to buy the best whole ingredients we can—seasonal and local if available, sustainable and at their best.


 Whole, plantbased, unprocessed ingredients are nutritionally superior, environmentally more efficient and they taste better too. 




Artichokes & Peas:  Main ingredients of a gentle, herby dip.

rules of thumb


These plantbased ingredients are prepared with a variety of homecooking methods and are jazzed-up with our own spice mixtures in order to provide you with seriously tasty plantbased homecooking.


Creative use of ingredients, prepping and cooking methods, allows us to come up with our rules of thumb.  Sautéing with a very small amount of water/stock/wine/vermouth instead of oil for example.


Since animal fat is not one of our ingredients, we only need to consider added oils in preparation of our dishes. Adding the absolute least amount of oil without compromising the deliciousness of the dish is our rule of thumb. We have quite a few dishes that we have naturally developed oil-free—ranging from scrumptious dips to hearty main courses. Our regular clients will also attest to the fact that the touch of good quality truffle oil completes our five mushroom and chestnut pâté.


(If we add oil it could only be extra virgin olive oil, minimal amounts of coconut oil or a few drops of truffle oil.)


Same applies to sugar. We use even less sugar. The very small amount of sugar we do use is rapadura (Portuguese) or panela (Spanish), which is made from unrefined raw whole cane juice. Having said that we have super tasty, completely sugar free ‘ketchups’ and ‘jams’ that are vey popular with our clients with kids. Artificial or refined sweeteners are not welcome in our kitchen; we prefer the creative use of fresh and dried fruits as a rule of thumb.

Handsome Lasagna

suitable for vegans & all other dietary requirements


Our food is for everyone.


As long as you indicate your allergies or dietary restrictions to us we have a great many delicious choices to offer. For example, we make celiacs very happy with great tasting food. Everything we make is completely suitable for vegans. (We do not use any honey.)


You will choose from a list that was originally developed gluten-free, oil-free, sugar-free, soya-free etc or we will create a dish for you. You will not be given a lamentable menu where the vegan option is the same as the vegetarian option but without the cheese!


PULSE spice-mix


from scratch

Absolutely everything is made from scratch. Our spice mixture, for instance, is a balanced medley of gentle spices toasted whole to release their oil and flavour, then ground in small batches for maximum aromatic retention.


If we say that the Thai inspired coconut curry has tofu in it this week, that means we have made our own tofu that week. It goes without saying that we make our own ‘curry paste’ from completely fresh, mostly green, ingredients.



Our homemade tofu!



We buy organic (certified) non-GMO soya beans,

soak them over night and hand make each block of tofu ourselves.

Our delicious firm tofu is sometimes infused with mouth-watering flavours such as preserved lemons or herbs. 

Varieties of raw beetroot rested in lemon juice and a touch of sea salt, dressed with a tinsy drizzle of extra virgin olive oil, homemade raspberry vinegar and a scattering of lemon thyme.



Homecooking is the social act of cooking in an un-cheffy way and eating together. We believe that the tastiest food is to be found in the home and not necessarily at a restaurant. One of our aims is to introduce you to many wonderful dishes you can learn to cook and relish at home. Our style of cooking doesn’t have any prerequisites, no training is required—you need only your imagination, some plantbased ingredients and of course appetite!




good taste & nutrition


Good taste above all means just that! We know something about nutrition in general and plant-based nutrition in particular, so we always make sure that we prepare nutritionally complete menus made up of naturally healthful dishes. Rest assured, we would never serve you anything just because it is healthy.


If you are in need of nutritionally superior super tasty food, we’ve got you covered.
