Swedish hash with greens

A common dish in Sweden is the Swedish hash called Pytt i panna. It’s often prepared with the leftovers from the week meaning mainly finely diced potatoes, yellow onion and some kind of meat, often beef. Today I make a green version of the traditional dish and serve it with pickled red cabbage.

Soon it’s Valentine’s Day and of course it should be well celebrated with someone you love; a sweetheart, best friend, family, or why not just because you can. Perhaps you want to celebrate the day with a festive dessert made with fried rice paper dressed with lemon curd, sweet fruit and tangerine caviar beads?

Swedish potluck; a green remake of the Swedish classic Dillkött

Today the final of the most important competition in professional cooking in Sweden will take place: Årets kock (The chef of the year). A competition started 1982 and initiated by Tore Wretman, the grandfather of fine dining in Sweden. What better moment then making a classic Swedish dish including the typical taste of sweet, sour and lots of dill. Let’s make a vegan remake of dillkött!

Can you really bake a delicious, sweet pie with chickpeas, sweet potato and pumpkin seeds? Yeah! And can you really replace eggs with chickpea flour? Yes! Gosh, I am (and you are) a lucky bird, because that’s what you get the recipe for today. An unusual and festive pie made with good stuff doing pretty good for you during Christmas.

A Swedish tasting Christmas bread

This Christmas bread contains all the classic Swedish taste of christmas. Cloves, bitter orange, ginger and cumin provides a wonderful aroma and flavor that immediately takes me back to my childhood Christmases. Enjoy it with simple accessories like butter and a creamy, mild cheese so that al the spices can flourish on their own.

Swedish soft tunnbröd with parsnip

Its funny when you start thinking about it really… In India chapatis are baked over open fire, in Surinam roti,  in Mexico you eat flat tortillas made of corn flour, in the Middle East you get amazing pita breads to be filled and in Sweden we are very proud to have our soft and hard flatbread. These thin breads are in various shapes available everywhere in the world. Today I bake a very easy to make flatbread with parsnip. So good!
