October means to me that the real soup-season has started. Preferably with a lot of flavor and tasty vegetables. Today I serve a comforting soup with courgette and saffron.
Many with gardens have an overflow on zucchini at the moment. Or you just find them at a very cheap price in the supermarket or on the market. What better moment to make use of it? I have some yummy recipes for you with zucchini to come but today I start with this citrus-scented oven baked zucchini.
I’m really doing my best with eating more and more green food but one of the things I really miss is cheese. Cheese that taste like cheese without the milk and without any unnecessary additives. And then I found this cheese, a really good feta cheese made with almonds. I’m in heaven!
This must be one of the easiest recipes I have made. But also one of the most delicious! Perfect to have ready in the refrigerator. Eat it just as it is or combine it with a salad, an omelet, a BBQ, fish or meat. The marinated artichoke heart with preserved lemons are fantastic with whatever!
The summer is the prime time for BBQ! Julius Jaspers, a well-known chef in the Netherlands knows that. He, a big enthusiast for barbecuing, have in the book BBQ bijbel collected al his knowledge about the subject. And I must say, it really covers everything!
Some mornings I really don’t have a clue for what to eat… And that’s how I came up with this avocado-yoghurt. It’s creamy with a bit of sourness just like yoghurt and of course filling. Add the toppings you like, maybe a granola or a mix of fruits or berries?
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.
When I want to create a new recipe, I often start with thinking in different consistencies. On my plate I like to combine something soft, something crunchy and something a bit more chewy. Al this comes together in this recipe with only greens and a even more green dressing.
It’s time for another Swedish cooking book! This time I have chosen a book written by a Swedish famous chef Tareq Taylor; Mat som gör gott (in translation Food that do good). its al about food that makes you feel good, strong, vibrant and healthy. It was of course a must for me to read this one!
I really like Indian food! But I hardly ever cook it myself for some reason… This cookbook can however be the solution on this: Easy curry vegetarian by Madhur Jaffrey. A thick bible of 350 pages with different curry’s and other vegetarian side dishes.
