Right now, the delicacy bear’s garlic is coming out of the ground like crazy in my part of Sweden. Right now, a beautiful spring sun is shining over our beautiful Österlen in the south. Right now it feels like a brisk contrast to what is happening in the rest of the world. Right now. Still, I cook. I make bear’s garlic pesto with baked carrots and red onion. So trivial as it is in this situation right now.
Sometimes you look into the fridge and think there is NOTHING there. Really nothing but maybe some potatoes, some onion and carrots. And then you really have a lot … Today I put the spotlight on the carrot and put it in its correct light.
I think that I have done this very simple dish about 5 times in the past two weeks. My dinner (or lunch for that matter) with root vegetables with fennel seeds and millet is so tasty, quickly made and filled with goodies that there’s really no reason not to make it. If you ask me ;0)
A few days ago I heard an interesting feature on the radio our about our everyday food. It can be such a tricky thing! But maybe my vegan roasted walnut sauce with pasta could work?
Today I cook a simple pasta dish from the vegetarian Belgian cookbook La cucina verde. Together with fresh vegetables, black pasta and salicornia, it forms a nice dinner with lots of color!
Next time you want something quick, delicious and filling, do me a favor and make crisp rösti with carrots. It’s just so finger lickin’ good!
Whether studying, working late hours or sitting at home having a good time, sometimes a sudden craving can overwhelm us all. A craving for something, almost anything. Something crunchy and something good that fits both tea and coffee. Something that you can eat without getting a bad conscience. Something that might be spelled crunchy muesli ball?
