Sushi course part 2: Inside-out rolls with white rice

Sushi course part 2 inside out rolls

So, I hope you all mastered part one of my little sushi course and are now experts in making maki rolls? Then it’s now time for a new challenge: inside-out rolls! These are a little more difficult to make (though we will use some kitchen foil to make it easier), so if you want to give them a go, maybe it’s best if you give the maki rolls a try first for practice. Since we need the rice to be more sticky than for the makis, I recommend using white rice for these. You can use whatever vegetable you like for the filling, I used ball pepper, carot, cucumber and beet root for the ones pictures above. Continue reading

Sushi course part 1: Basic maki rolls with brown rice

Maki sushi with brown rice

I’m quite into sushi at the moment, and since eating take out all the time isn’t something I’m very fond of, I figured it couldn’t be to hard to make sushi myself. Turns out, it really isn’t! These maki rolls are filled with plain rice and a basic vegetable filling – I used cucumber and red ball pepper – though you can use whatever you like of course. There are much easier to make than inside-out rolls or other kinds, so I figured to start my little sushi course with these ones. I used brown rice for this, it’s slightly less sticky than white rice but works fine as a filling. I wouldn’t recommend using it for other types of sushi though, especially if you just start to make it on your own. Continue reading

Colourful lamb’s lettuce salad with joghurt dressing

Even if it’s getting cold outside and autumn has finally displaced the last warm summer days, I still enjoy a fresh salad for a small lunch or supper. Admittedly, it doesn’t warm you like a hot soup or stew, but gives you plenty of vitamins and is quick and easy to prepare. Lamb’s lettuce is the perfect base for any autumn salad – it has a very mild taste and can be combined with sweet or hearty other ingedients. This salad combines lamb’s lettuce, crisp ball pepper, almonds and fruity cranberries for the perfect mixture of flavours. Give it a try!  Continue reading

Gnocchi with ball pepper and tomato sauce

Gnocchi are usually classified as a kind of ‘pasta’ and also on the menus in most restaurants gnocchi are normally arranged next to spaghetti, tagliatelle and lasagna. But gnocchi are actually made from potatoes and are comparable with little potato dumplings. Since they are made from boiled potatoes, they only take a few minutes to cook and are therefore perfect for quick and easy dishes. Just like this one:  Continue reading

Just like this one: It combines couscous with spicy curry, fresh green beans and ball peppers with a sauce from joghurt and lime. And believe me, preparing the couscous is the easiest and quickest part of it! 😉  Continue reading

Fried vegetables in peanut sauce with rice

vegetables in peanut sauce

This dish was inspired by the Asian cuisine, but the actual reason that lead to it’s development was the fact that I had bought a way to big jar of peanut butter. Sometimes I just forget the ‘Never go grocery shopping when you are hungry’ rule, and things like this are the result of it… But otherwise, who knows if I had ever created this dish? So I guess there’s worse than getting a little shopping druggy ;-). Continue reading
