SAFFRON-VANILLA BRAISED FENNEL

I´m not really sure what happened to the nice weather here, it´s been 6 degrees and pouring down rain for the last couple of days. Not really my cup of tea if I´m honest. But it’s probably better for my schoolwork since I just stay in and write all day instead of being out in the sun. Yesterday I…

HOMEMADE ALMOND BUTTER

I´m a morning person –  you know one of those crazy people that voluntarily (and without an alarm) jumps out of bed at 6 to start their day. One reason for this behavior, at least for me, have to be breakfast. Its my absolute favorite meal and I go to bed every night thinking about…

CLASSIC SPINACH SOUP

Well hello there! I’m so glad to see so many of you here – I suspect I have the guys from SortedFOOD to thank for the recent increase in readers (thank you!). I’m Petra, a Swedish food-addict and I hope you will like what you see and that you decide to stick around! If you want…

KALE PESTO

Say hi to my newest obsession – kale pesto. Made this the other night and actually ended up eating about half of it straight out the jar, and since then I’ve been putting it on everything – crisp bread, salads, instead of tomato sauce on pizza, you name it. When not eating pesto I’ve been…

HONEY&THYME ROASTED SALSIFY

My really small, french culinary-school teacher (I loved this teacher – not only because he had amazing skills he were so incredible french you almost thought he was faking it) called salsify “poor mans asparagus” and I think thats really clever, because it has the subtile flavors of white asparagus without breaking the bank. They look kind…

PUMPKIN AND GINGER SOUP

Tomorrow its time for my first (of two) exams before finally having some time off over christmas. It’s microeconomic principles that need to be mastered and I think I’ve got it, at least I hope so. It’s a lot of calculations and equations that have to be remembered but I can finally say that it…

BLACK BEAN PASTA WITH CREAMY MUSHROOMS

Just a quick and easy lunch. Black bean pasta is a favorite of mine to change up the regular spagetti-game, making it a bit more healthier and it fills you up for a longer time. Here in Sweden both Risenta and A la Eko makes relly good ones but I know it can be found…

HULLED BARLEY RISOTTO

This is just perfect food for the cold-season, its comforting while still pretty good for you with a ton of great fibers to keep the tummy happy. And god knows we need some warming up here in Sweden today, its first of advent, about 1 degree and ice cold rain is pouring down. First of advent…

CARROT-SOUP W/ SULTANAS

I made this soup the first time this autumn when I needed a tummy-warming soup to warm me up after walking outside and freezing for the first time this season (now its more unusual you actually doesn’t freeze). But this have been my go-to soup since then, its so easy to make but still it…

PUMPKIN AND KALE PIE

Winter just struck Sweden, last weekend we had some snow, but unfortunately it’s all gone now. Instead, its freaking cold, pitch dark at 4 and ice-cold rain is pouring down. This is also the right time to start sleeping with your socks on, because if one foot accidentally touches another part of your body while you…
