The first 2 green courgettes turned into a lovely pasta dinner!

A few days ago, I harvested the first 2 green courgettes called black beauty! Ooh yes! So, I needed to use them up & I invented this lovely easy peasy pasta dinner! Looks great right?

Ready to devour!

Ready to devour!

If you want to make it completely gluten-free, use Gluten-free bacon & GF pasta!

If you want to make it completely vegan, use vegan tempeh bacon!

Recipe: For 3 persons

Ingredients:

300 gr spelt penne

1 + 1/2 green courgette, cleaned, cut up into smaller chunks, see photo above

1/2 cup (78 gr) red bell pepper, deseeded & white bits removed, cut up into smaller chunks

2 fat cloves of garlic, peeled & finely chopped

12 yellow cherry tomatoes, left whole

black pepper

pink salt

a fruity extra virgin olive oil

200 gr of smoked bacon pieces

1/2 teaspoon dried thyme

to serve: grated Gruyère cheese

Method:

  1. Cook your pasta according to your packet instructions. Drain well & set aside.
  2. At the same time, heat up & a large non-stick pan & at a few drizzles of a fruity extra virgin olive oil. When hot, add chopped garlic, red bell pepper pieces & chopped courgette. Stir often & fry for about 5-10 minutes. Season with dried thyme, black pepper & pink salt. Check if the veggies are cooked through & browned, soft at all sides. When nearly done, add yellow cherry tomatoes to the hot pan & fry until they are super hot & ready. Spoon all of the veggies into the pot with hot pasta or remove from the hot pan. Now, fry your smoked bacon pieces into that same pan but add a few drizzles of that same fruity oil first. heat up & fry on high heat until browned & cooked through. Taste. Adjust seasoning to your liking. I added about 10 grins of black pepper & about 8 grins of pink salt extra. It all has to be fab in the mouth!
  3. Plate up, like photo above or mix bacon through veggie-pasta mix & serve at once. This is also nice topped with freshly grated Gruyère cheese,….yum yum! Stay Tuned! If you liked this post & want more of them, join 1,714 email followers to get my new cool email newsletters!

Harvest of the day turned into a lovely fish dinner!

Yesterday, I harvested these veggies, edible flowers & this lovely herb called dill & turned it into this lovely fish dinner. Only the sweet potatoes are not from our field. Mine are still growing in a big bag into our plastic conservatory!

Just look at this delicious dinner:

Yum Yum!

Yum Yum!

Let’s see how easy to make it really is.

Recipe: For 2 persons

Ingredients:

For the spiced roasted sweet potato fries:

3 large big sweet potatoes, peeled & cleaned, cut up into fries, like photo above

black pepper: 10 grins

pink salt in a grinder: 10 grins

a fruity extra virgin olive oil: a few drizzles

dried couscous seasoning: 5-6 dashes

For the olive oil onion-mangetout mix:

fresh mange touts, straight from the field. I had about 40 of them.

1/2 white onion, straight from the field, peeled & finely chopped

black pepper

pink salt

that same fruity extra virgin olive oil like above

For the oven-roasted fish:

1 big salmon fillet, about 220 gr, cleaned, pad dry, cut up lengthways into 2, like photo above

2 fresh lemon slices, each cut up into 2

black pepper

pink salt

that same fruity oil as above

1 tablespoon fresh chopped dill, no stalks please

2 lemon slices, each cut up into 2

For the salad:

mixed salad leaves, all washed, spun dry, like Amish deer tongue, little gem lettuce, edible flowers, red orach leaves, purslane etc.

lemon cucumber, peeled & cut up

Kumato or other tomatoes, cut up

a bit of mayo to serve

Method:

  1. Preheat your oven to 200°C ( 400 F) for 10 minutes. Take a fitted non-stick oven dish & place sweet potato fries in it, in 1 layer. Add black pepper, pink salt & couscous seasoning. Drizzle with that fruity oil, but not too much. Place into the hot oven & roast for about 25-30 minutes or until fully ready. Check often to prevent burning! When ready, turn oven off & check the fries with a fork.
  2. When your sweet potatoes fries, are just in the oven, prepare your fish dish. Take a fitted oven dish & smear it in with that same fruity oil. Take your salmon fillet, clean it & pad it dry. Season each fillet on the surface top in with black pepper & pink salt. Scatter your chopped dill all over the top, evenly divided. Now, top each fillet with 2 half slices of lemon. Drizzle a bit of that fruity oil all over the top of each fish fillet. Place into the hot oven on the lower shelf for about 15-20 minutes or until cooked through. Take the fish dish out of the oven & place aluminium foil over the dish to let the fish rest for 5 minutes before eating!
  3. At the same time, boil your mangetouts for about 5 minutes or until cooked through. Drain & cool off under running cold water to keep their green fresh color! In a small cooking pot, heat up a bit of that same fruity oil. When hot, add chopped white onion. Fry until cooked through browned. This took me only a few minutes. Add cooled cooked mange touts & season with black pepper & pink salt. Check seasoning. Keep hot.
  4. Plate up, like photo above! We served yummy mayonnaise with this lovely salad-flower-dinner! Enjoy, sweeties! xxx Love, Sophie! x

Vegan spelt pancakes with passionfruit glaze!

Yesterday morning, I invented these tasty beauties! I had some ripe passion fruit & a bag of sprouted wholemeal spelt flour lying around that I needed to use up so I created another new pancake recipe too. Just look at this beautiful one:

Let's digg in!

Let’s dig in!

Let’s see up closer:

These are 6 smaller wholemeal sprouted spelt thicker, fluffy pancakes that are also delicious on their own & fabulous when topped with this tasty passionfruit glaze,…it is what your mouth & body want!!!😉 This is not a dessert though because it is too filling! For breakfast & brunch it is ideal!:)

Recipe: For 6 smaller fluffy vegan pancakes!

Ingredients:

Dry ingredients:

1 cup + 1/4 cup (131 gr) sprouted whole spelt flour (I used Rude Health)

2 teaspoons baking powder

Wet ingredients:

1/2 cup (137 gr) apple sauce

1/2 cup unsweetened soy milk

1/2 teaspoon home-made vanilla extract

1 tablespoon agave

Passionfruit glaze:

3 ripe passionfruit, each cut open, seeds & flesh spooned out

1 tablespoon agave

Method:

  1. Place dry ingredients & wet ingredients in this order into your Vitamix container. Place fitted lid & tamper in. Blend on high-speed until fully mixed. This took me about 10 seconds. Remove lid & tamper. Your pancake mix will be thicker, like this:

    Thick healthy pancake batter!

    Thick healthy pancake batter!

  2. Make the passionfruit glaze. Place ripe passionfruit seeds & flesh into fitted cooking pot & add agave. Stir & heat up. Simmer for about 3-4 minutes until it forms like a gel aka jam like consistency aka glaze. Taste. It is a bit sweet & you really can taste the full passionfruit flavour & that is what you want. Turn heat off & keep warm while you fry your pancakes. it will look like this:

    hot & tasty!

    hot & tasty!

  3. Form & fry your pancakes. Take a small pancake pan & smear it in with a fruity oil. Heat up on medium-high. Spoon 2 big small spoonfuls of the dough into your pan & flatten it all out with the back of your spoon to form quickly a roundish shape for your pancake. Wait until bubbles appear into the surface of the pancake & carefully flip your pancake over with help of a pancake spatula & fork. With your pancake flipper, push the upside of the pancake down for an equal fry. When done, place onto a plate & repeat the process. I oiled my pan again & again. When all the pancake batter has been used up, serve at once, like photo above & enjoy! 2 pancakes will be enough because they really fill you up & that is what you want! The pancake itself is a bit sweet, thick & fluffy & the passionfruit glaze on top is also a bit sweet & so addictive as well. Enjoy, sweeties!

Carrots, carrots, carrots!

Hey sweeties,

I am back with an update of my latest harvest, turned into a tasty dinner. A few months ago, we have sown 2 different types of carrots into our compost garden. These were small round carrots, called Parisian round carrots. A little round carrot that is a nineteenth-century French heirloom!
Parisian is an early orange-red carrot that grows almost more like the shape of a large radish. Excels in clay or rocky soil where other carrots have problems developing properly. Its flavor is legendary and is highly sought after by gourmet restaurants.  The other sort of carrots were these: Chantenay Red Core Carrot. Heavy yielding. Selected for its bright orange color and fine flavor. This is a shorter, stump-shaped carrot that is broad at the top, but tapers into a stump root. It is a great choice to grow in average garden soil. This carrot variety stores well and can be used in all stages. It works well in our loam ground. It is a heirloom carrot. We have sown them very close next to the plant onions. It was an experiment to see if we could get rid of the onion fly & carrot fly. It truly worked!:)

Yesterday, we harvested 19 of them together. Let’s see them in their full glory!

Glorious tasty carrots!

Glorious tasty carrots!

Let’s see up closer:

Cool, right?

Cool, right?

It is like they are walking away!

It is like they are walking away!

hahahahha!

Carrot aliens!:)

I turned them into this lovely easy carrot dinner!:)

MMM!

Roasted carrots with dried thyme also from the garden!😉

Roasting them brings out that sweet flavour!

Roasting them brings out that sweet flavour!

Recipe: For 2 persons

Ingredients:

For the quinoa mix with carrots:

1 part white quinoa

1 part red quinoa

2 dried bay leafs

a few grins of black pepper

peeled carrot pieces, the one’s that are too small to roast

For the roasted thyme carrots:

as many carrots as you have, each well-washed, cleaned, pad dry, larger ones, cut vertically into 2

4-5 stalks of dried thyme, only the green needles

black pepper: 10 grins

pink salt in a grinder

a fruity extra virgin olive oil

For the rest:

2 seitan cordon bleu, fried into that same olive oil on both sides until cooked through & browned on all sides, kept warm.

Method:

  1. Preheat your oven to 200°C ( 400 F) for 10 minutes. Place your cut up carrots into 1 layer into a fitted roasting tin & scatter dried thyme needles all over it. Season with black pepper & pink salt. With clean hands, mingle everything together. Place into the hot oven & roast for about 25-30 minutes. Check often to prevent burning.
  2. At the same time, rinse your quinoa thoroughly under running cold water. Place into cooking pot & add about 1,5 times water to the pot. Add 2 dried bay leafs, black pepper & carrot pieces. Stir once & place fitted lid on & cook until cooked through & ready to eat. This took me about 15 minutes. Lower the heat of you need to. When quinoa has been cooked, drain well. Now, place onto a low heat & stir often. This way, the leftover water will get away. Keep warm & turn heat off.
  3. Plate up & serve at once! Enjoy your VEGAN LOVELY CARROT DINNER! Stay Tuned! If you liked this post & want more of them, join 1,702 email followers to get my new cool email newsletters! Subscribe by email! It is free!

Vegan Green Celery Dinner!

Yesterday, I harvested 2 giant bunches of green celery & after I cleaned, thoroughly washed, spun dry it all, I froze 1 bag of 700 gr into my freezer to use in the winter when I want to use green celery in my soups & stews. 300 gr of the green celery stalks, I cut up into larger pieces, each about 4 to 5 cm & used into this fabulous tasty dinner. I served it all with cooked red quinoa & seitan meatballs. So this dinner is completely vegan! To make it completely gluten-free, use GF sausages or tofu meatballs. It is up to you! You can even serve it without the seitan meatballs because it is very filling, but I think you need that seitan meat for better flavour!😉

MMMM! A lovely vegan dinner!

MMM! A lovely vegan dinner!

Allotement update & latest harvest from the garden!

Hey my lovelies!

I know that I have been absent for a while now, on my blog & on your blogs too. I had a good reason,…Peter & I were hard-working in our allotment. This year, we were a bit late & needed to sort the garden out. We had been to the container park to get some good compost but there was no more compost,…..big sigh! Now, we needed to work in our loam earth & needed to use the woelvork named in Dutch but I don’t know what it is called in English? This tool:

Here are a lot new photos from our garden, let’s see what we have done!

Vegan Strawberry Spelt Crumble!

I stocked away a lot of veggies & fruits in my freezer from our allotment harvest last year & needed to use up the last of the fresh strawberries that we froze last June.

I thought, let’s use them into a nice home-made vegan strawberry crumble & so I did. Check it all out here! I served it with a good pouring hot or cold vegan or non-vegan custard. Yum Yum Yum! My strawberries were very sweet on their own, so I didn’t need a lot of coconut sugar to use in my crumble.

I took them out of the freezer bag & used them just like that. It was 430 gr in total,… oh yes! Because I used them unfrosted, I added 2 teaspoon arrowroot powder to the frozen strawberries to bind the excess of fluids & I was right! It did the trick, just see in the 2nd photo!:)

We already ate a lot of fresh rucola (rocket leaves aka arugula straight from the garden. This is a wild variety. Huge plants! So, to enjoy it freshness the most, I invented a lovely vegan & gluten-free pesto with it!  We served it on a bed of spelt spaghetti & home-made chicken meatballs.

You can make it completely Gluten-free by using Gf pasta & Gf chicken mince!

The last Jerusalem artichokes from our garden & 2 vegan gluten-free recipes using them!

Hello sweeties! I am back in full swing. The last 2 weeks I have been ill with a viral throat infection but now, I am back with plenty of energy too!:) xxx

Sunday morning, my husband & I pulled all the rest of the Jerusalem artichokes from our allotment plot. We still had J. artichokes from 4 other plants in the ground. We needed to pull them out because the rest of them would regrow again & that wouldn’t be very nice in  the mouth & that meat less flavor too. We dug them out & left a few of them in the ground to grow to new plants in April. You see?

Jerusalem artichokes!

So, we placed them in 2 buckets filled with leaves & ground to keep them better fresh. We placed them in an unheated cold room. I already made several recipes with them. I will give you my favorites from my blog below this post & made 2 lovely recipes with them. The 1st one is a lovely soup, spiced up a bit & filled with yummy flavors & the other one is a vegan gluten-free main dish. Read the rest of this entry »

Pumpkin Pimped Breakfast, reblog with video!

Hey sweeties!

I reblog my lovely recipe of Pumpkin Pimped Breakfast here because I just made a photo video out to it! It was also fun & something new to do too. It is also shared on Facebook & on youtube!  Subscribe to my You tube channel HERE!!! Check it all out here:

And here is the full written recipe again, but you can follow it easily on the video itself!

This morning, I made this lovely Pumpkin Pimped Breakfast! I had some leftover fresh home-made pumpkin purée left that I needed to use up. It was just 1/4 cup. So, I made this yummy breakfast & used only 4 ingredients to make it! It is also VEGAN & GLUTEN-FREE! yes! Not to mention, very delicious! :) 

Recipe: For 1 person

Ingredients:

1 cup (274 gr) bit sweetened soy yoghurt

1/4 cup (61 gr) home-made pumpkin purée

1/8 cup (22 gr) vegan chocolate mini chips (min. 50%)

1 tablespoon chia seeds

Method:

Spoon your yoghurt into a lovely bowl. Add chia seeds & stir everything round through the yoghurt. Leave for 10 minutes. The chia seeds will soak up a bit of the yoghurt & will get a bit bigger. Add chocolate chips on top of the yoghurt-chia seed mix, evenly scattered. Finally, add all the pumpkin purée on top of the chocolate chips & with help of a spoon, spoon it through the top of the yoghurt mix. Enjoy with a big smile on your face! Yum! :) Stay Tuned! If you liked this post & want more of them, join 1,416 email followers! Subscribe by email! It is free!

Winter gardening update!

Yesterday, I biked to our allotment. I needed to cut away many black kale leaves for our vegan kale pasta dinner that we were going to eat. I will give you a winter update.

We have pulled up a lot of Jerusalem artichokes. One plant out of the 6, already gave us + 4 kg! Ooh yes. We dug up another plant, it also gave us + 4 kg! The rest of them is still in the ground. I know that we are going to leave a few of them for getting new plants later in the year. You know that we have made a plastic barrière for them before planting.

Home-made pumpkin puree & a recipe using it!

Hello everyone,

You all know that we grew 3 different types of pumpkins last year, yes? We grew 3 big Musque de Provence pumpkins (Cucurbita Moschata) & the tiniest one, was 5,2 kg! One of the bigger one’s we cut up open yesterday. This one was: 7,8 kg! That is right! We picked it from the plant on October the 10th before the frost so it was exactly, just over 3 months old! This is how it looked now:

It is a big one!

It is a big one!

Mom’s famous chocolate mousse + video!

This recipe is from  my mother. She has had a lot of success with it, for more than 25 years! Whenever there was a dinner party @ my parent’s house, there was the famous chocolate mousse!😉 Ooh yes! MMM!

airy mousse

I love this recipe because, it is utterly delicious, you can prepare it beforehand & it is so easy to make too. I am lactose-intelorant & there is NO CREAM in it! It is a little bit lighter, but has a lot of flavour! The sweetness is just right, it melts into the mouth! It doesn’t have EGG YOLKS either, that can make the mousse a bit heavier. You can serve this with some seasonal fruit on top, if you want, but the dessert itself doesn’t need it.:)

Amber said: ” Oh my gosh YESSSSS! This is the dessert I have been missing. The fact that it’s dairy free and looks just as yummy as a cream-based dessert is just so amazing!!! Please make this for me. :)

These are a few of my favorite things!

These are a few of my favorite things at the moment!

My favorite tea at the moment!

Shotimaa: Green tea, orange & cinnamon: Loving

This is a lovely green tea with herbs, spices & with plant extracts. The ingredients are: green tea bancha (65%), anise (5%), barley malt, bergamot orange extract, elderflower, cardamom, linden flowers, ginger, cinnamon extract, black pepper, cloves. More than 3/4 of the ingredients are organic.

I love this tea because it resembles Fall in all the way. It has good green tea in it but the tea is not bitter when it is steeped for 4 minutes in my favorite mug! It is like a soothing comforting healthy tea. I love the flavors so much. I think that you will too. I buy mine in my organic food store: bio-planet. One package with 16 tea bags costed me: 2.99 Euro.
