Garden harvest & a lovely chervil pesto dressing dinner!

Yesterday evening, I made this lovely combined dinner. You can make it totally gluten-free & vegan, if you serve this with tofu or a vegan schnitzel.

MMM!

MMM!

I used 2 types of cut away salad leaves & I also got a bit of the small baby red roach leaves. I also pulled out several types of radishes & the first 2 hands of fresh chervil. The fresh chervil, I used in a lovely vegan gluten-free fresh chervil pesto dressing, that I drizzled over the oven roasted new potatoes. I also drizzled a bit over the mixed salad leaves. I served it with a seitan cordon blue. A lovely divine dinner, straight from the garden!

This was the harvest of that day:

This was the second time, that I cut away salad leaves. This was also the second time, that we harvested radishes. We also harvested the first new chard. The old plant produced many new seeds & they grew:

80 gr of chard

80 gr of chard

Now, on with the delicious recipe:

For 2 persons

Ingredients:

For the salad:

4 handfuls of fresh-cut away mixed salad leaves, cleaned, washed, spun dry

a few baby red roach leaves, cleaned, washed, spun dry

fresh mixed radishes, cleaned, cut up finely into rings

For the chervil pesto dressing:( you will get about 250 ml)

1 + 1/2 cup ( 60 gr) fresh chervil, cleaned, washed, spun dry / green parts + stalks used, cut up roughly

1/4 cup (40 gr) toasted pine nuts

1/4 cup (60 ml) of a fruity extra virgin olive oil

20 grins of finely milled black pepper

15 grins of finely milled pink salt

1 smaller clove of fresh garlic, peeled & cut up

For the potatoes:

1 kg of peeled small potatoes, each cut up into 2

15 grins of finely milled black pepper

15 grins of milled pink salt

2 tablespoons of that fruity extra virgin olive oil

For the rest: a fried seitan cordon blue (vegetarian)

Method:

  1. Preheat your oven for 10 minutes onto 200°C ( 400 F). I always use a fan oven.
  2. Place your cut up small new potatoes in 1 layer in a fitted non-stock oven roasting tin. Grind your black pepper & pink salt all over it. Finally , drizzle your olive oil over it. With clean hands, mingle everything together. Place into center of the preheated oven & roast for about 25 minutes on 200°C (400 F). When done & browned, test with a fork.
  3. In the meantime, make your yummy pesto. Take your beloved food processor & place S-blade in. Add chopped chervil, chopped garlic clove, olive oil & toasted pine nuts. Add 10 grins of black pepper & pink salt too. Place fitted lid on & pulse repeatedly or until your liking. I always want to see bits of my ingredients into my pesto dressing, like this:
    My beautiful fresh chervil pesto!

    My beautiful fresh chervil pesto!

    4. Taste. I added 5 grin of black pepper & 5 grins of pink salt & blitzed the pesto again. Serve the pesto into a lovely serving dish with added spoon.

    5. Serve, like picture above. that chervil pesto dressing is just divine, like that or drizzled over the new roasted potatoes. I also drizzled a bit over my mixed salad leaves & radishes! The seitan cordon blue is a perfect partner for the fresh chervil,…ooh yes! My husband gave me 10/10 for this lovely easy to make dinner! Enjoy, sweeties! I had a lot of pesto leftover & place it into the fridge for later use. xxx Stay Tuned! If you liked this post & want more of them, join 1,485 email followers to get my new cool email newsletters!

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!:)

MMM!

MMM!

My strawberries crumble, my home-grown strawberries are a variety that are very sweet. So really, you don’t need the added custard,…but it is so delicious with it,…So over here in our household, we always eat custard with our home-made crumbles,…every time again! Ice-cream doesn’t do it for us, really!

Recipe: For 4 big portions

For the crumble topping:

100 gr (nearly 3/4 cup) organic stone-ground white spelt flour

100 gr (bit more than 1/2 cup) cold vegan butter, straight from the fridge

40 gr (nearly 1/3 cup) coconut sugar

60 gr (nearly 1/4 cup) almond flakes

For the filling:

430 gr (3 cups) frozen fresh strawberries

40 gr (nearly 1/3 cup) coconut sugar

1 teaspoon home-made vanilla extract

2 teaspoons arrowroot powder

Method:

Preheat your oven to 200°C ( 392 F)  for 10 minutes. I always use a fan oven.

First, make your crumble topping. Take a bowl & ad spelt flour, coconut sugar & almond flakes. Mix with a spoon. Now, take your cold vegan butter between your fingers & crumble it into fine smaller pieces into your mix until it forms “breadcrumbs”, smaller & bigger one’s, like this photo here:

Now, make your yummy strawberry filling.  Take a larger bowl & ad frozen strawberries, arrowroot, coconut sugar & vanilla extract. Mix it all together with a spoon. It will look something like this:

Now, place it all into your oven dish, evenly spread out. Place your crumble topping over the top & place in the bottom of the oven & bake for about 20 minutes. After 15 minutes, I lowered my oven temperature to 180 °C (356F ) & baked it for a further 5 minutes. This is because of the caramelization of the coconut sugar, you don’t want it to burn & turn black!!!!!

When ready, the crumble topping is brown & the filling is bubbling & when you open your oven door, your house will smell amazing! Ooh yes!😉

Take your oven dish out of the hot oven & place on your kitchen counter for about 5 minutes or until you can eat it. I served mine with cold non-vegan custard.

Enjoy, sweeties! xxx Stay Tuned! If you liked this post & want more of them, join 1,475 email followers to get my new cool email newsletters! Subscribe by email! It is free!

Vegan Gluten-free rocking rucola pesto!

Hello dear readers,

As you must have seen, I sent out 2 test emails. As you all know, recently, I have made my own email newsletters with a cool mailchimp account because I wasn’t satisfied anymore with wordpress.com.

As you also know, I have experienced a few difficulties too. So bear with me & I try to get it fixed really soon,…So, I have now disabled my emails from wordpress.com & hope that I will get the problem solved quickly this way. So, if you receive 2 newsletters from this post, just tell me, okay???

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.

MMM!

MMM!

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

You can make it completely vegan, by using tofu, seitan or tempeh.

The pesto itself is vegan & gluten-free! xxx

But wait, there’s more!

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!

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!

Vegan 5 ingredient pancakes!

This morning, I invented these 5 ingredient vegan pancakes,…and healthy too,… ooh yes! Check them out!:)

Vegan 5 ingredient pancakes!

Vegan 5 ingredient pancakes!

These smaller fluffy pancakes are very delicious on their own or drizzled with some good maple syrup! Eat them still warm, so your chocolate chips will melt!:) Yummy!

Drizzled with some good maple syrup!

Drizzled with some good maple syrup!

The batter is made in minutes. And then you fry them. It is that easy! Do you know, how I made them?

And now the video here, just new for you all:

Recipe: For 10 smaller pancakes

Ingredients:

1 cup ( 90 gr) stone-ground oat flour

1 cup (240 ml) unsweetened almond milk

1/2 cup (94 gr) vegan dark mini chocolate chips

1 ripe peeled banana, mashed with a fork

1 teaspoon baking powder

To fry in: a fruity extra virgin olive oil

Method:

  1. Take a large bowl & ad oat flour, baking powder, mashed banana & chocolate chips. Mix well with a spoon.
  2. Now, add almond milk & mix everything together. Wait for about 5 minutes & your batter will be thicker.
  3. Take a fitted small non-stick pan & heat up on medium-high. Drizzle a bit of that fruity oil in it. Take a small soup ladle & pur your batter in it. This will make the size of your pancakes. Pour the batter into the middle of the pan & swirl it a bit around the pan. Fry for about 2-3 minutes or until the sides are all browned & take a fork to loosen the sides of the pancake. Then, with help of a pancake flipper, flip your pancake & fry the this side for 1 minute or 2. Place the ready pancakes on top of each other onto a plate & place a large upside down plate over them to keep warm. This recipe makes 10 smaller pancakes. Serve warm just like that or drizzle with some good maple syrup! Yummmmm!:) Stay Tuned! If you liked this post & want more of themjoin 1,358 email followers! Subscribe by email! It is free!

Sophie’s salsa verde with pan fried haddock pieces!

MMM!

MMM!

This my version of the good & tasty salsa verde. It means a green sauce. Salsa verde is a great sauce to make. You eat it cold. You can easily make it in your beloved food processor.

I served my salsa verde with pan-fried haddock pieces & oven baked potatoes. It is great to use as a simple cold sauce in pasta. You could also stir it through mashed potatoes.

It is great to use a big dollop on jacked potatoes. It is great in a salad too. You could also use it on top of grilled pork: a divine combination!

Now, my recipe, it is easy peasy!

But wait, there’s more!
