Christmas granola with orange and spices_2

Christmas granola with orange and spices

In Sweden, as in many countries the Christmas is filled with traditions of dishes that should be served around this time of the year. I however think it’s the different spices that really make Christmas.  Today, the classic gingerbread spices will give taste to my Christmas granola with orange. Good for a yogurt, in a cake or maybe even as adding some crisp to a salad!


Pasta sauce with fennel and whole coriander seeds

Ok. I know. Fresh coriander is a typical “love or hate” ingredient. But whole coriander seeds are a complete different story! Today, they add a fresh taste of lemon to my pasta sauce with fennel and leek. A real simple sauce to make for any dinner when short in time!

Fried polenta with red onion marmalade, shiitake tapenade and smoked tofu

There are many dinners planned around potatoes, rice or pasta. Today I add a lovely Italian classical to it: Polenta. I make fried polenta with red onion marmalade, shiitake tapenade and smoked tofu. A great alternative for dinner together with some green leaves or even as a fancy snack to go with the sunday drink.


The new green salad + salad with wild rice and roasted pumpkin

The Swedish book The new green salad by Therese Elgquist is a really nice book about warm and cold salads. Today I review the book and cook a warm salad with wild rice and roasted pumpkin from it. 


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.
