No time and you are not up to cooking? Hey, I get you! But a balanced diet is everything, right? These harissa carrots with fresh goats cheese, poached egg and lettuce on buttered toast is so easy and quick to whip together! And it’s just delish! Especially this combination of all the ingredients yields in a perfect mixture of aromas and textures. This dish is also great for using up […]

I am the first to shout “here”, if there’s mexican food involved. I love tortillas, quesadillas, tacos and co! For this delicious “fingerfood” I reduced the beans in a smoky spicy tomato sauce. On a bed of lettuce the beans will melt the cheese and are topped with sweet, sour and creamy avocado. It is a dream! If you have tortillas at home it is so easy to whip a […]

This risotto with black rice from the po valley and saltwort (barba di frate) is full of Italian ingredients and flavours and you might as well find it on an Italian menu. I just got inspirated from what I had at home at that moment! The black rice is also perfect for other rice dishes. I picked it up in a deli named Eataly. You already might know Eataly from […]

Recently I was in Italy and of course I shopped a lot of groceries there ;). I discovered some italian specialties , like cima di rapa. When I see something special like this I have to buy it! What I will do with, I’ll figure out at home. In this case I made an easy, but very delicious pasta dish, which features the cima di rapa perfectly! Cima di Rapa […]

This pasta with radicchio and bacon is definitely made for the category “quick and easy”. I love it especially, as the radicchio adds a whole new flavour, also I can’t resist pasta and bacon! This meal is a favourite of me, but as it is with quick meals, you don’t have time and mind to take a pretty picture. So this time forseeing I scheduled it for lunch ;). Yep, […]

I love the messengers of spring time: wild garlic, asparagus, rhubarb and strawberries! It’s easy to make a lot of delicious treats of wild garlic, but the essence is best to enjoy with wild garlic pesto or some scrumptious wild garlic butter! Today we make pesto and in no time you have an amazing pasta dish on the dinner table which tastes like spring! A more eloborate dish which is […]

Our field produces a lot of veggies these days. Especially Swiss chard and green beans are big hits and since recently we also have a lot of zucchini, of course! A few days ago I was also able to harvest the first yellow tomatoes! Swiss chard ist very versatile and can be turned in a lot of great dishes! I already introduced you to two dishes including Swiss chard, but […]

Although this month will be mostly about ice cream, we habe a lot of vegetables from our field to eat. Some of you with an own garden themselves might know these situations having some sorts of vegetables in abundance. Our zucchini, cucumbers and the squash are quite late this year. But we have a lot of swiss chard, lettuce and different kind of beans at the moment. Last year I […]

Watercress desperately in need was my theme for the last years! But since last week there’s one market stand that sells watercress and also grows it. I’m thrilled! I also noticed that the lettuce varieties on our market has increased. You can now also buy leaf lettuce, 3 years ago this was not possible. You might not notice that spring is approaching, because of the freezing temperatures (and the snow!), […]

Some months ago Heidi blogged this wonderful salad on 101 cookbooks. Originally named the greenest salad, because you can’t make it any greener than this. This salad combines vegetables, fruits (yes, avocados are berries!) and nuts for a dish which sticks out for its different aromas and textures. Therefore it’s just more than a green salad, it’s greener than green, the greenest salad it is. If you are struggling to […]

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, […]

It feels like a decade ago, when I pinned this recipe to our fridge, to cook it. The salad á la Nice needs a lot of fresh produce. But last weekend, thanks to our field, we had green beans, bell peppers, tomatoes, cucumber, lettuce, anchovies, tuna and potatoes at home. You would think, that there are too many things combined here to taste good. But we were surprised how tasty […]
