Red Lentil Chickpea Dahl

I need to be honest and tell you that I considered it for a long time if I should post this recipe or not. Don’t get me wrong! It is a mega-delicious ‘one-pot’ meal and I never regretted developing this recipe. But, it is also damn hard to make it look as good as it tastes. It is one of those awesomely-tasting foods which you prefer to make for yourself or for your family, but don’t exactly feel like you will impress the judges of a master-chef audition with it (only because in my opinion those guys care more about aesthetics rather than taste).

Well, I gave it a try anyway and in the end, I think I managed to get some good shots. I am actually pretty content with the result, especially because now I get to share it with you.

I have been going through a lot of changes lately and therefore, I have been neglecting the blog for a while. I do, however, have a lot of projects in the pipe (most of them food related of course) which I hope I will bring to fruition soon. Continue Reading…

Jerusalem Artichoke Soup

It’s October everyone! It’s the month of pumpkin pies and pumpkin rolls and pumpkin bread and … pumpkin everything basically. All I can see in supermarkets nowadays are only pumpkin themed foods and decorations (not to mention the pumpkins themselves). I sort of like all this “pumpkinforia” going around in October but I try to keep away from the overuse of this delicious fruit (yeah … it’s a giant fruit) as much as possible. I sort of ‘save myself’ for Halloween if one could say so . I love the holiday and I am actually pretty happy Denmark has slowly adopted it as its own.

Although a pumpkin related recipe is in the making and it will soon be up on the blog, today I want to direct your attention towards a ‘not so famous’ root vegetable that makes for an incredibly delicious soup: Jerusalem artichoke.

Jerusalem artichoke

Despite its name , this little potato shaped root has no relation either to artichoke nor Jerusalem. It is believed that it got its name after a  vast etymological mash-up from various names people have attributed to it along time. It resembles a ginger root on the outside, has the texture of a potato on the inside and tastes a bit like apples if you take a raw bite. Continue Reading…

Cauliflower-crust Pizza

Almost all my life I have only eaten cauliflower in its pickled version. I remember being a kid and watching all those American stereotypical movies with children who absolutely dreaded eating their broccoli. Well, I completely understood them back then, because I was having the same relationship with the broccoli’s wither sister: cauliflower. But, as most of our tastes in food evolve with age so did my hate for cauliflower.

I was about 20 years old when I ate my first cauliflower mash with garlic and spring onions, and I was simply dazzled.   Continue Reading…
