Red Bean Burger


Almost every thursday, my older brother’s girlfriend and I meet to cook something nice, while the boys are having their weekly BBQ and watching very manly action TV shows (and sometimes Germany’s Next Topmodel during ad breaks…). It’s become a nice tradition and we always enjoy the food soooo so much! So, last week we made these red bean (or kidney bean) burgers and were over the moon by their deliciousness! Continue Reading

Stuffed Rye Bread (German Specialty)

unbenannt

hey-everyone
As it’s getting more christmassy every day now, I’d like to share my favorite Christmas market dish with you! The German name is ‘Handbrot’ which could be translated by hand-bread (if you like it badly translated, otherwise just call it stuffed bread…). It’s basically fresh rye bread, traditionally stuffed with ham, cheese and mushrooms (which can be replaced with pretty much everything) and topped with a dollop of sour creme. This is really popular in Germany, be it as a midnight snack at your fave music festival in summer or, as I mentioned, to keep you warm at a Christmas market in winter. It’s a great snack to bring for parties and to have with your friends after or before a long night out or for dinner with a nice cup of hot mulled wine! And for the second Advent week, I’ll show you how you can make it yourself : ) Continue Reading

Tarte Flambée with Pumpkin and Apples

unbenannt
hello
I wanted to share this recipe for such a long time, but never had the chance to take nice photos of it, until last week, when I made this Tarte Flambée for lunch instead for dinner (for the light)! Tarte Flambée is a French pizza-like tart with a very thin bread crust and originally topped with sour cream, onions and bacon bits and baked for a short period on very high heat. And it’s delicious!!! And so quick and easy to make. I reinterpreted it autumnally with cottage cheese, spices, pumpkin, apples and fresh arugula and I make it at least every two weeks throughout the season.

Pumpkin and Coconut Soup

unbenannt

hi-guys
When the weather turns cold and the leaves begin to fall down, I love going for long walks in the forest, wearing a warm wool sweater and walking beside my loved ones and collecting leaves and chestnuts. When we get home, we love sitting in front of the fire place, warming up on some hot pumpkin coconut soup and see what each of us found in the woods. Continue Reading

Ratatouille with Feta Cheese and Pasta

hey-everyone
I personally love a vacation most, when it’s spent outside, sleeping under the stars or in a tent! This summer I went to the French west coast for a week of sun, sand, waves and gooood food! It was a hell of a week and I immedietly fell in love with the massive pine trees and the fine sand! As for camping trips, I like it to take as few things as possible with: a pot and a pan (which is the lid of the pot at the same time), a minimalistic camp stove, a spoon, fork and knife, one sharp knife and the cooking basics, like quinoa, lentils, couscous, pasta, canned tomatoes, beans and corn, oats and cornflakes and some nuts. Since I only cook on a gas camp stove, I always have to make sure to not choose meals that cook too long. Here is how to make camping-ratatouille with feta cheese and pasta! Continue Reading

Pumpkin Ketchup

Hi peeps,
I guess, by now everyone has noticed that I spent the last week making a giant calabaza pumpkin into everything I could think of. Well, here’s another great recipe for you to try and love: pumpkin ketchup! You don’t need any fancy-pants spices, just plain and natural ingredients that are available everywhere on the planet (I guess)! Ever minded that tomato ketchup always tastes much too sweet? Now you have the chance to sweeten and spice the sauce to your liking! To me, this is a new world and I feel so powerful being able to decide about the ingredients of my very own ketchup. And this one is refined sugar free, gluten free, vegan and completely plantbased, just saying… Continue Reading
