1 kilo of fresh peas (pod included) is waiting in the fridge. My initial idea of a kind of pie doesn’t feel like the proper recipe for those green delights, so while having my breakfast in the sun, I decided on the following one. Shell the peas from their pod ( Oskar loves to chew … More Improvisation
Huge portobellos are only occasionally available in the supermarket. I can’t resist buying them. The target is to experiment with another filling. A lucious burrata of 150 grams is desperate to be used. Mix the burrata with 4 garlic cloves, the stems of the mushrooms, fresh basil, pepper and salt in a blender. Taste, add … More Filled portobello
The tarocco oranges are at their best now. As I told you before, they are always seedless and can vary from slightly red and lots of orange to slightly orange and lots of red. If you can find them untreated the whole skin is eatable. Remove the zeste of 1 tarocco orange and set apart. … More Tarocco and burrata, same couple, so many varieties
Today, I’ll share 2 different recipes with cauliflower as protagonist. Last week, I saw a recipe of fritters, which I remember to have tried already. I made the same mistake by not draining the cauliflower enough. Instead of cookies, I made one large cookie ( which is of course less attractive, less crispy, but much … More Cauliflower, she can do it all

Slice the pumpkin in manageable … More Pumpkin soup, pumpkin puree, I can’t resist 😅

The green one weighs 1,5 kilograms, looks great outside, is pale yellowish inside and needs to be prepared because of a large crack. Luckily enough there are no … More Meager pumpkin harvest 😏
It’s always an adventure to cook something with the leftovers of the fridge. I decided two days before going back for a refill. Thus, today’s menu is a combination of pumpkin and red cabbage and some frozen meatballs, tomorrow a pasta with preroasted tomatoes, onion, garlic and chili. Chop 400 grams of a leftover pumpkin … More Pumpkin and red cabbage?
Last weekend we invited our dear Italian friends for a dinner. I have to admit, I wanted to impress with non Italian recipes. We were only 6 and I cooked for 10, knowing that leftovers could be used in another version. The buffet will be explained in other blog posts. Our dinner tonight is a … More Last weekend I let myself go in cooking too much food
Green cabbage is healthy, cheap and rich of possibilities. For 2p one cabbage is often too much. After steaming the leaves you can easily store a few leaves in the freezer for another occasion. Use the big leaves for this recipe. Drain the leaves after steaming. Chop and fry 1 onion, 4 garlic cloves in … More Green cabbage in layers
Romanesco cauliflower and celeriac filled with puree and gratinated in the oven? Remove the inner part of the cauliflower and celeriac. Put the remaining cups on baking paper or in an oiled dish.
