    Morotssoppa – en smakrik höstmiddag

    Morotssoppa var ett recept som tillkom när jag insåg att jag hade en massa morötter kvar i den undre lådan i kylskåpet. Det kanske är någon annan som känner igen sig i det? Nu håller förvisso morötter ganska länge i kylen men ändå. Den är enkel och verkligen god. Mångsidig morot Morötter är verkligen en grönsak som jag använder i mycket. Som bas i en tomatsås, men också i en tomatsoppa. Eller varför inte prova en galet god morotshummus? Förvara morötter Väldigt ofta har jag också morotspuré i frysen. Jag rostar ett gäng morötter i ugnen och gör puré av dem. Jag lägger sedan purén i fryspåsar, plattar till och tar ut vid…

  • knaperstekt kyckling

    Knaperstekt kyckling med potatis och halloumi

    Knaperstekt kyckling är en vardagsrätt som ofta är i vår veckomeny. Efter att ha provat denna en gång så förstår du varför. Dels är knaperstekt kyckling otroligt lätt att laga, att variera, tar hand om sig själv i ugnen och så vansinnigt god. Vardagsmat Jag älskar att laga mat och står gärna i köket. Men vardagsmat är ganska stressigt för mig också. Därför tar jag gärna genvägar utan att för den sakens skull kompromissa varken kvalitet eller smak. Nummer ett är bra råvaror, punkt. Detta är det som påverkar din mat absolut mest och är det som du kan inte ska kompromissa bort. Nummer två är att hitta på recept som sköter sig…

    I love bread. I could live off good quality bread. Dip in olive oil and be done. If you are anything like me, you’ll love Greek Tortano. All the best flavours in one bread.

It’s all about the right ingridients…

    Sweet potato jacket in the oven

    I made a post on my Instagram this week about hell hour. Let’s continue down that road. Because let’s face it, school just started. We have a long way until Christmas break. Sweet potato jackets bake themselves in the oven. The topping takes about 5 minutes to do. That leaves you being able to do whatever else you want to do until the oven clock rings. Sweet potato jacket not only bakes itself in the oven, which gives you time to do something else. It is also a great source for getting your daily dose of vitamin A. And it's delicious too!

  • Shakshuka

    Shakshuka -Middle eastern quick food

    Shakshuka is my favourite Middle Eastern go-to meal. It’s quick, it’s very flavourful and all it takes is 20 minutes. And if you have eggs and tomato sauce you have your base. I would say that’s pretty damn perfect. Shakshuka – what? I always mispronounce this and call it Shakshukra and my son calls it Shakira. However, you want to pronounce it – I really urge you to try it. Traditionally the recipe requires Harissa, which is a hot chilli paste. Usually, it has a smoky flavour. I didn’t have Harissa at home. Therefore I switched it up a little. Onion, tomato and garlic serve as a base in this recipe. Which incidentally is the base…
