Hello there! Just made a recipe for www.aggcoddler.com. An egg coddler is an amazing way of cooking your eggs. It's been used in the UK since the 1890's and comes in many different patterns. Äggcoddler is a new started company which make egg coddler with a Scandinavian design. You make the most amazing eggs by basically just add all the ingredients you like, crack an egg on top and then seal the coddler before putting it into boiling water. After approxiamtley 10 minutes you'll have an amazingly creamy egg with your favourite flavours! Perfect for long weekend breakfasts. Recipe in English and Swedish further down.
My new favourite breakfast/snack. Super easy but looks super fancy! I like that. I always tend to have tahini at home. It's a sesame paste with a really delicious, nutty flavour. I use it for hummus, as a topping for my oatmeals and now as a spread on sandwiches. I'm having this tomorrow for my Sunday breakfast, can't wait! Recipe in English and Swedish down below.
Mango, coconut flakes, lime and a little bit of sugar. mhhhmm. Just the palm trees missing, right? If I'm making this recipe again (will most definitely happen tomorrow), I'm gonna serve it with some coconut ice cream. I mean ice cream could never go wrong, especially not with warm fruit. This time I didn't have the time to go shopping for ice cream but nonetheless it turned out delicious. Recipe down below.
Visited beautiful Utö in the Swedish archipelago outside Stockholm last week. Had the most amazing time and can't wait to show the island to my boyfriend and family. When me and my friends were about to leave the island we received a gift from our local guide, Thomas. The gift was the most amazing bread, still hot from the oven. The bread is a local bread with a lot of tradition. It has a really nice sweetness to it, which I really like. The bread is baked at the local bakery of the island, Utö Bakgård. You need to visit that place if you ever go to Utö, which I highly recommend you to do. I decided I wanted to come up with a dish with the bread. I had some perfect avocados and smoked salmon at home, so I figured why not combine these and put them on this amazing bread?
It's been a really stressful spring with a lot of things to do (work, school, moving to a new apartment, renovations etc.) I haven't been able to cook the way I'm used to, nor to come up with new recipes. But now I feel that I'm back on track. Imagine what a little vacation can do to you :) Have a lot of funny things a head of me, which I will let you know more about soon.
I met some new german friends this week and one of them told me about this great food experience he had last year when visiting Greece. Panfried feta cheese covered in sesame seeds and, after getting fried to perfection, the golden pieces of cheese were covered in honey. What? Yes! How?! These were my questions to him. He told me about the ingredients and I just had to give it a try. So today I made this delicious dish and it really turned out great! Thanks for sharing Jens. The cheese was served with a lovely salad with strawberries, cucumber and red onion. Give it a try! English and Swedish recipe down below.
Sometimes leftovers make the best lunches. Today I made a salad of baby spinach, smoked salmon, pickled onions, creamy bean mash and some sourdough croutons. I was about to throw that stale sourdough bread away, but hey! I thought to myself, I can always make croutons. So that's what I did.
Also, mashes beans, how good? Mashed with some lemon zest, juice, olive oil and salt and pepper. Great on toast as well. Always keep beans as a staple, they can save many dinners!
This is fast food at it's best. This dish took no more than 30 minutes to prepare from start to finish. I love that kind of food! Getting a flavourful broth in no time can be quite difficult, but this time I was more than happy with the result. I used soba noodles (they are made of buckwheat and are therefore gluten free) but any noodles will do just fine. Same thing with the vegetables, they can be chosen depending on what you have at home. Swedish recipe down below.
Back in school after a six month break. Love getting back to all routines and friends. With long days in school a healthy and filling lunch is a must! Preparing for the lunches and grocery shopping takes a lot of time and planning, but it's totally worth it.
So I thought I'd share some dishes that really make my mouth water. They are all on my "to-cook-list". All recipes that inspire me are saved in a bookmarket file, so whenever I'm lacking inspiration thats my go to place.
Tea in chocolate mousse? Yes, it works great! I made this recipe using Earl Grey tea, it gives the mousse a slightly hint of the tea and its bergamotte. Serve the mousse with some whipped cream, cocoa nibs and pomegranate seeds. Swedish recipe down below.
It contains rooibos, it has orange juice in it and it's sweet. It's a rooibos sauce. Seriously, you need to try this! It'a so tasty! Great to pour over pannacotta, ice cream or fruit salad. Yum yum! Choose a natural rooibos or one with a mild vanilla flavour. Swedish recipe down below.
This is my second recipe for www.teadventskalendern.se It's a homemade chai tea made with a lot of nice spices as well as black tea and rooibos. To get the most flavour out of the spices I first roast them in the oven for a few minutes (your kitchen will smell amazing, promise!) After the roasting I coarsely grind them in a pestle and mortar before mixing the spices with the tea. This is great as a christmas gift! I'm actually planning to give this to my mother-in-law for christmas. Swedish recipe down below.
It's quite easy to fall into a pattern of always eating the same thing for breakfast. Whenever I get tired of my breakfast I search the internet for some inspiration. Yestrerday I looked through my own food photos and thought I'd share some breakfast inspiration with you guys.
Perfect small bites when you need something sweet or some extra energy. I usually bring these to work as an afternoon snack. You can vary them with different kinds of nut butters, depending on what you like. Roll in toasted coconut flakes or some finely chopped nuts or almonds. Swedish recipe down below.
This is the best thing ever. For the past week I've been drinking a new tea every single day as a countdown for christmas. It's my friends Lizette and Sofie that are selling this calendars. Last year they asked me if I wanted to share some recipes with them, which was such an honour for me! This year I've created some recipes again. The theme this year is recipes all containing tea in one or another way. Head over to their blog to find the first recipe Matcha chia pudding (in swedish). You can also find the recipe here: Yoghurt chia pudding
Whenever I run out of granola I feel like I have nothing to eat for breakfast. Since I'm a breakfast lover it's not very nice feeling that way. So, in order to prevent that, I make sure I always have a batch of granola ready to make the most delicious breakfasts. It can be varied in so many ways that I never seem to get tired of it. Swedish recipe down below.
I love this kale salad. I’ve been eating it 6 times the last two weeks. It’s easy to prepare and can be brought to work or school for a healthy lunch.
I usually keep a container with cooked quinoa in the fridge, which makes it easy to prepare healthy salads during the week. I also toast a lot of pumpkin seeds and store them in a jar throughout the week. With precooked quinoa and toasted pumpkin seeds, a healthy and delicious meal isn’t far away. Swedish recipe down below.
Two years ago one of my best friends from Sydney was visiting me in Stockholm. One night we made this white bean and tomato gratin. We found the recipe in one of Jamie Olivers magazines, but decided to change the recipe a bit since we didn't have all the ingredients at home. I haven't cooked the gratin since then, even though I've thought and talked about it a lot. Yesterday I finally decided to try the recipe again. And oh boy, it tasted just as amazing as I remembered! You need to try this! It's really comforting and can be served with a lot of things.
