Red Lentil Soup with Chili, Fennel and sweet Cherry Tomatoes

I think this is my overall favorite course. A spicy delicious lentil soup! Quick and easy to make, tastes really good, makes you satisfied for quite a long time and you can use any kind of vegetables you like – and have at home. Red lentils are perfect to have handy all the time for…

A little something in between

I wanted – something! So I made myself a little snack! 1 rather big carrot 1 small apple Some fresh lemon or lime juice Finely grinded fresh ginger A dash of oil. Organic rapeseed oil has a fine nutty taste, or why not try sesame oil? Grind the apple and the carrot roughly, blend everything…

Smoothie in red

Some time ago I started to go through my pictures. The folder “food” contained a lot of courses, cakes and “goodies”. I realized I cooked and baked a lot more before I moved into the apartment where I live now. I guess it’s a very good thing in many ways, that I’m soon going to move…

Golden Egg-Rolls

 The pancakes (one serving) 2 eggs 1/3 – 1/2 deciliter maize flour 1 dl water 1 teaspoon turmeric powder 1/2 – 1 teaspoon yellow curry powder a pinch of salt a pinch of ground black pepper (adds to the health beneficing effect of turmeric) Stir the ingredients together in a bowl and put it aside for the…

The last Ice cream of summer

Ice cream made of strawberries and a banana. Mix while frozen of course. And make it quick! Otherwise it won’t be this creamy delicious saturday afternoon treat. (But a smoothie is also nice) Hidden inside: goji berries which becomes crunchy, walnuts and some freshly squeezed lemon juice. I wish I had had some dried cranberries left in the cupboard…

Quick-made Apple pie

Also I want something sweet sometimes, even though my sweets never are sugary. Never! I used this and got 2 servings a pan for the oven 5 apples, medium sized 1 – 1,5 dl oats – the kind you make porridge of (about half a Cup) 0,5 dl rice flour (half as much as oats) cinnamon…

Why not salmon for lunch or dinner?

Fried in butter and with a huge pile of mixed sallad. I hardly need to come up with a recipe here, do I? Just one reminder! Don’t fry – or grill – the salmon for too long thus it will be dry and dull. Just slightly beyond the border of being raw. Which means you take it…

Chocolate cake

I have to remind you – and myself – of this delicious chocolaty cake…. 😉 I love chocolate. Always have! So mostly when I make myself a cake, a afternoon snack, I make a chocolate cake. Sometimes I instead bake a cake with cinnamon, vanilla, and a small apple in bits and pieces! Which also tastes delicious!…

Chia pudding with strawberries

Almost like a fruit yoghurt – though better! Way better! (No diaries in it – and no gluten.) Better both in taste and nutritional values, and with no added chemical substances or any unnecessary sugar. Chia seeds doesn’t taste anything at all in themselves, therefore you can do almost anything with them. When baking bread, in…

Smoothie for the afternoon tea

Best served cold! I don’t think a smoothie should consist of mostly some sweet fruit juice and pieces of sweetest imaginable fruits and berries. That isn’t healthy! That isn’t nutritious! That doesn’t make you satisfied for at least a couple of hours! On the contrary! The huge amount of sugar makes you hungry again even faster!…

Strawberry Dream

This is something I experimented with last summer. How to enjoy a non-diary ice cream / sorbet. Yes it’s possible! No milk, no cream, nothing at all coming from a cow!!!! And so easy to make! A strawberry dream… Sweet, tasty and very refreshing… This is how it’s done! 1 banana, frozen in slices 1 big…

Kidney bean casserole

Hi there! How about a hot steaming casserole a rainy, windy and pretty cold day? (Summer, uh….!?!?) Here is one of my favorites, and I promise it’s easy to cook. Actually – easier than it is for me to write the recipe… I’m lousy to measure how much of this and how much of that, and…
