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.
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!
The other evening I wanted to sneak up something fast for dinner. It became a delicious salad with quinoa, fresh figs and mustard dressing!
Today, I make a granola with fresh plums and cinnamon for coming breakfasts. After all, a good breakfast waiting make it somehow easier to get out of a warm bed in the morning! It just might be handy after a long vacation…
Do you want a nice breakfast that makes you happy and going until lunchtime? Then you just have to try my full-grain quinoa porridge with plenty of deliciousness!
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!
A simple luxury is to be able to offer your own homemade crispbread for breakfast or the drink. Today I make a super simple crispbread with teff and seeds!
Can you really bake a delicious, sweet pie with chickpeas, sweet potato and pumpkin seeds? Yeah! And can you really replace eggs with chickpea flour? Yes! Gosh, I am (and you are) a lucky bird, because that’s what you get the recipe for today. An unusual and festive pie made with good stuff doing pretty good for you during Christmas.
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?
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!
