Romanian Cabbage

Since I missed World Food Day at Klarna I decided to post a traditional recipe here instead. This is a typical Romanian dish with a bit of a twist. I added chickpeas to the base recipe since I thought it would go really well and compliment the dish. We usually eat this together with polenta…

Eggplant Burger

This is another twist of the Eggplant Sandwich that I posted some time ago. The difference is that this time I am using buns that I warm in the oven and I made a burger sauce that adds creaminess and rounds it up. Ingredients Burger eggplant mushrooms rucola burger bunns Sauce cashews tomatoes dry tomatoes olive oil chilli…

Pumpkin soup

Autumn means pumpkin, and pumpkin means pumpkin soup! This is a really easy recipe for pumpkin soup that goes really nice with homemade sourdough bread. Also I discovered this interesting nutty blend at Urban Dehli the other day that I thought would go great in pumpkin soup. I then tried it out and it does! Ingredients…

Baingan Bharta

This is a typical indian dish that I prepare at home sometimes. Baingan means eggplant in hindi and Bharta means mashed together. I do not claim that I can cook authentic indian food, take the recipe with a pinch of salt. This is a fairly simplified version but I find it tastes great due to the…

Pizza

This is a harder recipe to master since it is difficult to describe the dough consistency in a post. But I am sure if not the first time, the second time it will be godly. Preparation time is roughly 1.5 hours including rest time. Dough Ingredients 2 cups flour of your choice (e.g. spelt flour or…
