Sweet Potato Toast

Do you know Kelsey from ‘Little Bits Of’ – she is the food blogger who invented 1 month ago sweet potato toast. You heard right sweet potato TOAST, not toasted sweet potato or roasted sweet potato. No,she sliced a a sweet potato as if it were bread and put it into her toaster. And then she just put stuff on it for breakfast, and, yes, that mad her morning. As the net, is the net, one month was enough to create a new food fashion trend. So, if you want to be in style currently – eat sweet potato toast in the morning. It’s a thing!

Summer kraut nut avocado salad

It‘s time to mix and match and celebrate plenty. For a laid back Sunday, I decided to prepare this meal-filling salad that basically contains EVERYTHING you need meanwhile having character! What, I mean you will see – just take a look on the ingredient list. Or take a look of the picture I took of the ingredients: For 3 people you need: 1 rather small (but not too small – see pic) pointed cabbage 3 longitudonal flesh tomatos (if questions just take a look at the pic) 200g fresh peas (peel them yourself – see pic) 6 red spring onions 1 avocado 200g walnuts 100g hemp seeds 1 and ½ lemons Hemp oil Olive oil Caraway powder Salt & black pepper Optional: 1 red carrot So, cruel things first: I wanted to use the red carrot as a topping (to add last to the salad). But, I could not since a squirrel ate it. The essence of the story: don‘t store red carrots on your balcony or terrace. First the squirrel marked it with its …

Red lentils pasta with a classical chillie-tomato sauce

First the obligatory spaghetti monster pic: Two years ago I wrote about a pasta brand that produces spirelli made of 100% lentils. Guess what – they come in different colours! Depending if they are made from green, yellow, red, brown, or black lentils, the pasta is accordingly green, yellow, red, brown, or black 🙂 Two years ago, I tried the green variety – made from green lentils. Now it was time for the red variety. To make it short – it’s a lot better than the green variety!! The green variety was very difficult to integrate into a dish – not so exciting. In contrast, the red variety is delicious! It tastes a bit different from normal pasta which is a plus; this means for example that you can use a sauce with minimum herbs with it and it still tastes very characterfull. So, let’s start you need: 250g of  red lentils pasta (this is one package from the brand HOLO – see here) 3 mid-sized onions 1 red bell pepper 2 tea spoons hot …

Three pulses pancake

Sweet lupin beans and their usage as food have troubled me for some time now. In particular, I found (now almost 1.5 years ago) a recipe by “Krümeltiger” for lupin pancakes that kinda gave me an inspiration how to use sweet luipin flour in daily cuisine. Here, you can find my interpretation of the recipe. As I kept on experimenting with this unusual ingredient, I developed a mint-red bell pepper pancake recipe myself which till today remains my favourite recipe for this bean (even when compared to commercial ready-made products – I am proud to announce, it excels). Why all the hazzle? Well, lupines are nutrition-wise very valuable; they are rich in all essential amino acids and tons of other good things. Moreover, they are an agriculturally important alternative to soy beans: they can be cultivated in areas soy beans do not grow; so far, their agricultural production reains more environmentally favourable than soy beans. Wild lupin beans are toxic to humans. In traditional cuisines, they ae prepared in a laborious way to get rid of the toxins, and …

Lifehacks: The 5 min lunch based on CousCous magic

Dave Hakkens is at the moment trying to revolutionize the world a bit by turning as many of us as possible into plastic recyclers (and yes, for some reason his pseudonym sounds like the Dutch version of the other life-hacks channel we inroduced earlier this year…). The man also knows how to eat well, as he demonstrates in the life-hack video below. Before I will cover more of his work (in fact, I am gonna write him an email because I want to learn what his idea is what one could do with all the supermarket plastic bags), I thought it is worth sharing just this little video, as it is easily overlooked on his youtube channel… It is very cute and makes me want some couscous for lunch as well 🙂 Of course, I think though that the one ingredient which is missing in his recipe is hemp 😉 But otherwise: marvellous idea!

Bitter and sweet – my favourite way of eating sweet potato fries – a quick recipe

With sweet potato fries, it is usually love on the first bite. Preparing them is a bit of an art though. Don’t get me wrong, in fact, it is pretty simple, you just cook or bake the potatoes for a short time, fry them in oil, and put some chillie powder above them. However, every now and then, you will encounter some restaurant or food vendor who figured the ultimate trick how to prepare sweet potato fries. The result is just genuine, heavenly sticks! Although your home-made version is pretty awesome, those are by some dimensions better than yours – a galactic phenomenon. At least this was my thought when I tried the Sweet Potato French Fries from a vendor in the spectacular ‘Arminushalle‘ in Berlin Moabit (always worth a visit!! – see pic). My ambition is sparked – at some point I will figure out their recipe (eventhough the chef who sold me the fries said I should just enjoy – not all secrets are ment to be known). What I liked about their fries …
