Spinach and Ricotta Tortellini

It has been a while since we did a blog post about food! But now I think it is time to try to start¬†that again. It is a new year and a chance to try something new. So why not try to make your own tortellini ūüôā It is fun and you can make a lot at the same time.

Quesadillas with a Spicy Guacamole

This is a super easy, super quick recipe for a delicious dinner. You can easily adapt this recipe, and if you want to make it even nicer, but less healthy, double the cheese so it oozes out when you eat it.

We were inspired by thinking about the Mexican food we ate in Korea two years ago, and found this Jamie Oliver recipe that we have adapted a little.

The guacamole in this recipe is more like a fresh avocado salsa. For a slightly more creamy guacamole, see our recipe here. Continue reading

Cauliflower Pizza – Gluten Free

As some of you may have read, we were in England this past week and my sister Jasmine (of Shedding the Wheat) cannot eat gluten. When we were discussing what to have for dinner, we had all heard of cauliflower pizza and had wanted to try it, so that’s what we did!

It was incredibly simple to do, and didn’t take much longer than a regular¬†pizza base (seeing as you need to leave the dough to rise normally). We decided to have roasted vegetables on our pizzas, and me and Sofi had cheese on ours, but my sister had hers without as she doesn’t eat dairy products. Continue reading

Tabbouleh and Houmous

We rarely eat or make Greek or Turkish food. However, tabbouleh and houmous are two very¬†fresh and delicious dishes that are easy to make and which you can eat different things with. We ate some falafel with ours. We didn’t make the falafel ourselves this time since we didn’t have enough time (too hungry ūüôā ) but we have in the past. And we would recommend you make your own even if it is a bit of work.¬† Continue reading

Oven-Baked Portobello and Chestnut Mushrooms with a Goat’s Cheese Sauce

Tonight I felt like eating something with pasta that had a lot of flavour. Since I love goat’s cheese and mushrooms I decided to make a¬†goat’s cheese sauce and bake some mushrooms in the oven. I made my own pasta since I love fresh pasta, but you could use whatever pasta you want.

Vietnamese Bun Cha with Sticky Tofu

This is a dish that we have made a few times and it is so delicious. There are a few different elements to prepare, but it is well worth the effort. We have made the sticky tofu a few times and it is also very good to eat with other things such as rice and stir fry. The recipe is from Jamie Oliver’s magazine and we have adapted it a little bit to suit our taste. It is a nice and fresh dish and if you love tofu, noodles and Asian flavours you will love this dish.

Simple Cheese Ravioli

This is a very simple and quick way to make filled pasta, with few ingredients but it still tastes great.

We ate our cheese ravioli with a ratatouille we made earlier this week. We always try to make a big batch of some type of sauce that goes with pasta, rice, couscous or roasted potatoes. That way you can vary the things you eat with the sauce and even add other things to a dish as well. We usually have at least 3 types of vegetables as the base and then we add a few tins of tomatoes or whole tomatoes. So this time we made a ratatouille where we used fresh tomatoes, onion, garlic, zucchini and aubergine. We added a tin of tomatoes and flavoured it further with some thyme. Continue reading

Zingy Asparagus Pasta

We love pasta, as you probably¬†know, but we don’t always love the idea of cooking a complicated sauce to go with it. That’s when this sauce is perfect! You only need three ingredients for the sauce: asparagus, lemon juice, and butter,¬†and all you do is slice the asparagus and fry it in the butter and juice; simples ūüėÄ Continue reading
