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!

Pumpkin and sesame butter

Pumpkin seeds are one of my favorites! Crispy, with lots of flavor and so versatile in the kitchen. If you happen to follow me on Instagram, you’ll see how often I tend to use it… In other words, it was just a matter of time before this pumpkin and sesame butter would appear on my kitchen table!

Moist bread with cauliflower and beetroot

How is it possible to make a great tasting bread out of cauliflower and beetroot? I have absolutely no idea but what I do know, is that it works. The vegetables (and some more good ingredients) form together a moist bread that goes perfectly with any kind of spread or why not just plain butter?

Pumpkin with halloumi, tomato sauce and lots of flavors!

Last week, we had guests for dinner. I was doubting what to serve, my thoughts were going everywhere, unable to decide. Until an hour before the guests arrived, I still hadn’t made up my mind!

Cauliflower-leaves and truffel tapenade

I have thrown away pure gold for many, many years but finally i see the light! I’m talking about the green leaves from the cauliflower. Crunchy, easy to spice up and almost for free. Have you been doing the same as I? Well, it is time to stop and actually start using this what we normally maybe would see as something for the green bin.
