MY BEST VEGAN ROASTED POTATO SALAD- perfect served warm!

Swedish midsummer has now passed, and with its ending, a slight melancholic feeling always comes over me. I am slower to embrace seasonal changes than most people I know. Particularly when those changes will, in due course, involve darkening days and many, many more layers of cumbersome clothing. In any case, seasonal produce in Sweden […]

VEGAN THAI-INSPIRED (NO)MEATBALLS- quick, easy & flavour-packed

Do you ever borrow from your own recipes to create new ones? That’s basically what’s happened here. Currently hooked as we are on the Panang curry flavours of our go-to tofu dish, I decided to amalgamate them with a plant-based take on Sweden’s most iconic husmanskost meal; meatballs! This incredibly snappy (20 minutes or so […]

VEGAN CRISPY TOFU PANANG (PHANAENG) RED CURRY WITH RICE NOODLES- salty, sour, sweet, satisfying & gluten-free

Returning to Stockholm to be greeted by this dish – as cooked by my husband – is basically receiving the ultimate “Welcome home!” exclamation in food form. After a whirlwind magical content creation + exploration trip to Miami, CocoCay and Nassau (more on that soon. Thank you Joyce and Royal Caribbean!), followed by considerably less […]

CARAMELISED FIG SKILLET PIZZA-STYLE PANCAKES + farewell to this blog + a journey from an anonymous food blog to cookbook, part 1

It is with a very sentimental and somewhat heavy heart that I announce the impending closure of this particular blog chapter. Unless you’ve shared the good, bad and everything in between via a blog before, you probably cannot understand the attachment I have to a place that has given me the ability to connect, express […]

SPICED CHICKPEA & KALE AVOCADO TOAST

I am not a fan of New Year’s ‘detoxing’, dieting… or even resolutions, for that matter. I do, however, like to eat in a balanced way that’s sustainable year-round, and for me that means eating lots of plants (or greens, if you will)! I don’t tend to go avocado crazy around this time of year, […]

SEASONED OVEN ROASTED POTATOES- easy, comforting & absolutely delicious

When I was little, roast potatoes were probably the thing I most looked forward to seeing appear on the family dining table (well, other than sweets!). To this day, I still believe that nothing beats my mum’s version of roast potatoes, however these come a close second in my estimation. My children love them too. […]

REFLECTIONS ON CONNECTICUT (food, images, gratitude… with a side of Cowboy Caviar)

It’s safe to say we’ve travelled more this year than we ordinarily do (and we ordinarily travel quite a lot!). From our several thousand-kilometer Aussie road trip, to our last Royal Caribbean cruise in the Bahamas, and our most recent trips to Swedish Storsjön and Turku in Finland, it’s been a year of discovery… both internal […]

SWEET POTATO NACHOS (with quinoa & bean mince)

This is what happened when my love of sweet potatoes met my love of nachos… a delicious plant-on-plant combination, that’s satisfying, protein-packed, tasty and very sharable. As sweet potatoes and quinoa featured heavily in my recent cooking workshop, I thought it would be nice to share another family favourite with a wider audience while dedicating it […]

All recipes included in the workshop are made with real […]

POTATO & RED PESTO PIZZETTAS WITH ROCKET

Short on time? I empathise! So here’s a short post and a quick recipe. Yes, I am back with another pizzetta variation. And once again the recipe title probably suggests this isn’t pizza in any traditional sense. But if you’re on the search for something tasty, simple and a little different, why not give it […]
