Potato and Leek Bake with Cashew Dill Cream

May 1, 2017

Long time no blog. The week I spent in Sweden at the beginning of the month left me inspired to continue the slow-paced life I had picked up on while there, but uninspired to get behind a computer and write. That calming week was spent resting, walking, eating, playing, cooking and eating and although I had tons of recipe ideas when I returned, nothing felt right. What did feel right was this potato and leek bake that I had been making every week since my return, that felt far too simple to blog but that, without even realising, reflected the pace and flavours that had been present during my week in the countryside: different types of alliums, potatoes and dill. Humble, easy, delicious.IMG_3444

Minty Fresh Spring Green Tacos

April 6, 2017

It’s finally the beginning of Spring here in Copenhagen! The trees outside my house are no longer naked, I can have dinner with the sun still shining and almost best of all, Spring produce is on the shelves. This week I arrived home from the market full of Spring greens and purples and was craving all of the beautiful flavours in one meal, which is where the idea for this Fully Loaded Spring Green Tacos was born. Soft tortillas are stuffed with mint tahini massaged purple kale, grilled asparagus, spring onion lentil salad, sprouts, and mashed avocado with mint. Keep reading and get your Spring on!

Cardamom and Orange Buckwheat Granola

March 26, 2017

I don’t even really know why I bother making granola.  It hardly ever makes it to a jar once cooled, and when it does make it there, it doesn’t last more than 3-4 hours.  This granola came together one rainy afternoon – as most recipes on this blog seem to – and as I looked at the beautiful mountain of peel of the oranges I had just gone through, I had the urge to make something out of the zest.  I was never the biggest fan of citrus in baked goods growing up, but over the past few months I’ve discovered the difference it can make and the depth of flavour it can bring to just about anything. 11 year old me would have cringed at the combination of cardamom and orange in this,  I would have probably begged for you to just make it chocolate-y, but it is so incredibly fresh, different and delicious and it has been brightening up these rainy March mornings.g1

Green and Grains: Fermented Edition

March 16, 2017

I’m back with another Greens and Grains, and this time it’s a super rad fermented Greens and Grains.  I’ve been learning more and more about the importance of gut health this past month and have already had countless happy fermentation days.  I’ve put this bowl together with a lot of healthy bacteria in mind and magically it seems to be that the more fermentation, the more flavour, and this one really packs a punch. So here it is, Greens and Grains Fermented Edition, made up of miso marinated tofu, short grain brown rice, maple glazed broccoli stems, kimchi and an avocado ginger dressing- let’s do this!p1 Continue Reading…

Buckwheat Crepes with Maple Hazelnut Tahini Butter and Blood Oranges

March 6, 2017

Does it get any better than breakfast on a Sunday morning? I tend to spend those wonderfully slow, worry free hours cooking, eating and chilling and this Sunday was no exception. I had been putting this breakfast together in my head for weeks and could literally picture myself biting into a stack of sweet creamy maple-y crepes , and let me tell you- that first bite of the exceeded my expectations by a mile. Everything in this dish comes together like a dream- the crepes are soft, the maple hazelnut tahini butter (wow that’s a mouthful) gives the whole thing such depth and sweetness, and the blood oranges bring so much freshness to each bite. And I mean, as long as you don’t eat almost four dishes of it like I did, it’s also pretty healthy too.IMG_2456

February Reflections and March Resolutions

February 28, 2017

I’ve never been a huge fan of New Years Resolutions- I always make them, and even stick to them some of the time, but I don’t find they’re the most productive way to make the most out of a whole year. Instead, I find it’s so much more effective to reflect on my goals at the end of each month that passes and to set some for the coming month. That way, it’s harder to get side-tracked – claiming I’ll start later in the year – it’s easier to get things accomplished as I have a one-month ‘deadline’, and I have the chance to reflect on the beautiful and special things that have happened throughout the past thirty days. I know I’m not the only one that has uttered the words “oh well, I’ll try again next year”, so now that February has come to a close, set a moment aside to think about all that has made you feel grateful this past month, and reflect on what you want to accomplish this coming month. Here are some of my reflections and resolutions, along with a some film photos that have captured a few special moments of the month that has just come to a close.
