Homemade salsa brava

The trick to make a great homemade salsa brava is to roast the tomatoes, garlic and almonds first. It makes a worlds difference to the final taste in the dish! And it works with so much more then just the patatas bravas (the Spanish version of “French fries”)…


Fresh dessert with coconut milk, red berries and rose water

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!

This is one of my favorite dishes since my years with raw food. I just keep coming back to it whenever. A raw tabbouleh with cauliflower, lots of lemon, parsley and fresh mint. It just doesnt get much better.

For when in a hurry! Pasta-sauce with Savoy cabbage

These days. Are going way too fast! So many ideas and wishes what I would like to do and so few hours. If I only could add an extra five hours to each day! It’s on those kind of days, recipes like this one is invented; pasta-sauce with savoy cabbage. Ready in just 15 minutes, with minimal washing-up afterwards including only cheap and great ingredients. What else can you ask for? Oh yes, I forgot. It taste divine! Until recently I have only been eating radishes raw but since some time I have started to cook them as well. It becomes incredibly tasty. Soft crunchy and with a bit less heavy mustard taste.  A perfect alternative to other vegetables. You bake them or cook them just like they are or with dried or fresh herbs. They get a mild taste that works with many different dishes. Did you try it yet? To make the dish vegan, I used coconut yoghurt (I used this one from Abbot Kinneys). Don’t worry, it won’t taste coconut due to the other spices …
