It’s been hot in the Netherlands lately! So hot that I started to look for alternatives to my daily hot coffee… Therefor, today a ice cold pick-me-up coffee drink with lots of goodies in!
Pumpkin seeds are one of my favorites! Crispy, with lots of flavor and so versatile in the kitchen. If you happen to follow me on Instagram, you’ll see how often I tend to use it… In other words, it was just a matter of time before this pumpkin and sesame butter would appear on my kitchen table!
I can’t wait for the summer to come but while waiting I make this smoothie bowl with taste of summer!
Time for some inspiration for what to put on the sandwich! Today I have prepared a goat cheese* but without the goat milk or the rennet. Fantastic on a sandwich just plain or with some topping like fresh onion, apple or cucumber. It also works perfect for browning in the oven, just like the “chevre chaude”.
For some time I have looked for and longing for nut bread. That was until I decided to redeem myself from my longings and bake my very own nut bread. Filled with fine nuts and seeds. Lovely chewy and tasty with a slice of cheese or maybe some jam.
Forget everything about tasteless tofu, this is the good stuff! Super-easy to make but you need a bit of time as the onions really should be slow baked soft to blend nicely with the rest.
Today you’ll find a rich mushroom tapenade with both fresh and dried mushrooms in the blog-bowl. Filled with lots of flavors and made to brighten up your dinner, light warm winter bonfires in your friend’s eye and make you feel like you just won the lottery. Mushroom tapenade is the thing!
After a long vacation finally the book reviews are back on the blog. And oh, theres so many fun, good and inspiring cookbooks released since the summer! Today I have a review of a Swedish book called Baka vego and recipes for apple syrup and lemon curd.
I really like gooseberries but I don’t manage to find them very often. This time I was lucky and I came home with a liter. Now what? And then I knew, of course I should make compote. Like all grandmother did when I was a child (at least I think they did)… Today I’m making raw gooseberry compote in my kitchen!
The inspiration for this dessert I had years ago in an Indonesian restaurant. I have never had it since but the tastebuds hadn’t forgotten about it. It was time to create a copy-cat from an old food memory, fresh dessert with coconut milk, red berries and rose water!
