This brussel sprout purée is a revelation! And before winter is over (hopefully for good!) I show you what you can do with those little beauties! The purée is unbelievable delicious and doesn’t remind at all at brussel sprouts. So if you normally run away when you see sprouts, give that purée a chance! Could be also a good way to sneak sprouts into a childrens diet. Just don’t tell […]

I looked for a recipes with green beans and I got some good recommendations on twitter, thank you! Juliane hinted me some blog posts of her, which attracted me immediately. Green beans with pasta, lemon sauce and garlic crumbs! This dish is whipped up in about half an hour and therefore perfect for a quick after work dinner! Nonetheless the pasta looks just delicious. It is also very handy that […]

After the gluttony of Christmas and New Years Eve people want to concentrate on healthy, light food. Ok, some people. It’s not that I don’t like salads. I love salads that have a lot of going on in texture and where only little leavy greens are involved. The big problem with salad is that they are cold. Not good for someone like me who is freezing a lot. The good […]

Some time ago I told you that I love to have breakfast. Just, I don’t have time for that. I want to sleep instead. At least in the week. So mostly I eat a yogurt at work and that’s it. That’s ok, but not the best. And because I’m a bit fastidious demanding about yogurt (don’t buy the big brands, no fruit pieces, no softened granola, no artifical flavours, so […]

If you are lucky you might get some late blackberries and peaches for this delicious gluten-free crumble. Unfortunately I didn’t managed it to blog earlier, but as it fits with the gluten-free theme at the moment and as the combination of peaches and blackberries is that good (I wasn’t convinced at all before) I had to blog it nonetheless. I found the recipe in the gluten-free girls aka Shauna James […]

My favourite soup! Ok, my favourite soup with carrots. But this recipe is one of those I’m using again and again every year. After the zucchini glut we now have a carrot glut! Recipe recommendations anyone? Besides using up some carrots, this soup is just the right dish after autumn showed up here. Spiced up with some coconut milk and cumin and then puréed finely this soup is a delight! […]

Today I have a classic for you! Beetroot Salad, in this case with yellow beetroot – which changes nothing in the flavour – made Franconian style. In Germany you can buy preserved beetroot salad, which tastes quite similar. I love this salad since childhood, but homemade is always best. The salad tastes fresher and you can adapt the firmness of the beets to your likes. This is still my favourite […]

Autumn leaves his signs, on our field the Swiss chard is ripe and it’s time again for warming and hefty dishes. Swiss chard is a great vegetable, especially if it’s a colourful variety. Our’s is red and green, but pink, yellow or orange instead of red is beautiful, too. Unfortunately there are not a lot of dishes, that come to my mind, when I have Swiss chard in my hands, […]

Kohlrabi is not quite my favourite vegetable. It just taste tastes too much like cabbage to me, but has quite a fantastic texture. Quite difficult. As a child I loved to snack it raw and I can’t remember that cabbagy taste. Really strange! After the original plants on our field were eaten by flea beetles, we planted new ones nonetheless. I confess, it was all about the colour! But I […]
