    The Vegan Semla

    The semla is a classical Swedish pastry that is served on Shrove Tuesday. Now days even before. But it used to be served as treat after fast. During the last couple of years the Semla, whether a vegan semla or not has popped up in many shapes and flavours. As you probably know by now I love experimenting with new flavours and play around with textures. The semla, however, is one of those absolute classical pastries that I love just the way they are. Hello vegan Semla I can go as far as a vegan semla, which really is just the way the classical one is. Just allergy friendly. I…

    Vegan bounty bars

    These vegan bounty bars were created because two of my best friends have different types of food allergies. But they still like sweets and honestly who doesn’t like bounty bars? Especially with only the good stuff inside them. They are not very difficult to make but they take a little bit of time the first time you make them. The vegan bounty bars need a food processor to be firm and get the right texture. The first time I made them I didn’t use a food processor and they were not as easy to work with. I have used agave syrup for my bounty bars however, you can use honey too…

    A Super smoothie to super charge you

    What’s a super smoothie compared to superwomen? Nothing really. But superwomen need their superpowers. And what better way to start off than giving your body the good stuff. This is a sponsored post by Entreprenörddagen. Superpower vs. Hungry My superpower is that I can make connections with people. I love people and I think everyone carries around a collection of wonderful stories. However, let me tell you, when I’m hungry I’m not a nice person. Do you guys remember that Snicker’s commercial a few years back? The one with Aretha Franklin? If not, here it is. That is pretty much me when I’m hungry. And of course, I don’t even realise it until…

    The best ice lolly recipe for kids

    My kids have been living out of our freezer this summer. We have an ice lolly factory in our kitchen. It has been a tropical summer in Sweden. And we are loving every minute of it. Ice lollies for breakfast anyone? These ice lollies are very easy to make and taste like a little bit of ice lolly heaven. You can use this recipe with any kind of berry. And make a different ice lolly. But this season the strawberries have been really sweet. I guess this is what happens when berries get to grow in full sunshine. Ice lollies and sugar I use a little bit of sugar in…

    Vegan pineapple pie

    I have been cooking a lot of exotic food lately and thus the vegan pineapple pie was born. I love pineapple and to me, there’s nothing as exotic as a pineapple. It makes me think of sunny endless days, good vibes and sunkissed skin. The exact opposite of what’s going on in Sweden at the moment. Although to be fair, I have never seen a pineapple tree grow in Scandinavia.Anyway, wanted to make something to be reminded of everything that’s good in life. And at the moment the grocery shops are filled with beautiful pineapples. Therefore, I decided to make a vegan pineapple pie, to suit everyone’s needs. As you may…

    Roasted sweet potato soup

    When you try to eat seasonally in Scandinavia it gives you an option to eat a lot of root vegetables. Even though the sweet potato is only remotely related to the potato, it’s still in the same family. I love roasted vegetables, therefore roasted sweet potato soup wasn’t far off to make. Let me tell you guys, it’s really tasty. It’s creamy, it’s full of flavours and it’s vegan too! However, first of all, I wanted to tell you guys that the reason I have been really absent on my blog is that I have been really ill. I know this is a food blog, therefore I won’t dwell on…

    Lentil soup – the Crock Pot way

    This post is a sponsored post by Bagaren och Kocken, and the Crock Pot I use for this recipe is this. Lentil soup is one of my favourite meals during winter. Especially the one with red lentils. In my opinion, they keep their texture a lot better than other kinds of lentils. It makes them the perfect addition to this lentil soup. This lentil soup is packed with flavour and vitamins. All of which you need for cold Autumn and Winter months. For this lentil soup recipe I used a lot of ginger and turmeric, both have wonderful health benefits. Along with carrots, garlic, mung beans and tomatoes. Easy does…

    Avocado chocolate mousse

    To be honest, when I first heard Avocado chocolate mousse, I was sceptical. I love, love, love chocolate, did I mention that I love chocolate? Anyway, I didn’t think there was an easy and healthy way around chocolate mousse. Turns out, I was wrong. This Avocado chocolate mousse is scrumptious. You can’t taste the avocado at all. This particular avocado that I used from Gram is even sweet. I have never heard of it before and I was very pleasantly surprised. It’s creamy, airy and has the perfect texture really. I didn’t want to add sugar to this, so I used dates as a sweetener, but really ripe bananas tend…

    Scandinavian Friday tacos

    Scandinavian Friday tacos are almost like an institution in Sweden. We call it “fredagsmys” which loosely translates to cosy Friday. Loads of families eat Friday tacos, followed by crips and watching a movie on the sofa. Which sounds kind of relaxing right? True, but when your kids are asking for the same Friday tacos, every Friday what’s a mama to do? You find creative ways to make them differently. However not as differently so that the kids won’t eat them. It’s Friday tacos fun! It’s also in this week’s Gram weekend food bag! This weekend we have totally embraced the Scandinavian Friday feeling. With the “fredagsmys”, but I have mixed it…

    Overnight bircher with apples

    This overnight bircher with apples has become a typical breakfast in Sweden. It’s a cold, tart healthy and keeps you full. The best part is that it’s “cooked” overnight and ready for you to devour in the morning. The overnight bircher with apples is not as new as one might think. It was invited by the Swiss doctor Bircher, who tried to get his institutionalized patients to eat more raw fruit. Since a lot of people confuse Sweden with Switzerland, I now claim this recipe as Swedish. Easy does it This is truly one of my favourite recipes to make. I usually make a bigger batch that will last me the whole week.…
