so trying something new for breakfast. all winter a lot of porridge is eaten and i do love those oats…so found this raw porridge recipe also called bircher müsli and thought it’s perfect for summertime and hot weather. got inspired to make raw porridge at the food club (this is a danish food blog) but i also found a recipe here at green kitchen stories i’ll have to try soon. again i did a little alterations to the food clubs recipe. used oatmilk instead of soymilk and added some chopped walnuts and chia seeds. topped it off with fresh strawberries. will tell you this new take on the porridge was a success in my house.
during this summer elderflowers were everywhere in my neighbourhood and decided to put them to good use and make myself some elderflower cordial. used this first recipe (sorry it’s in danish) but found this recipe on river cottage. i only used 500 g of sugar and that was plenty sweet for me. man it was good!
went to steam for lunch. cheap, clean food and real good is my words. we shared the 12 veggie dumplings with a big bowel of noodle soup and it was plenty of food for us. totally forgot how delicious chinese cabbage is (it was in the noodle soup) and for a while I’ve been wanting to make this kimchi recipe from my new roots. how pretty is the display of the food. really love the simple concept and we almost live next door to the one on söder…pretty lucky i’ll say. the ginger beer was spicy and bubbly and i liked it!
went to the loppis/food-truck thing at hornstull today. the weather was great the ambience fantastic. met tabatha & mr.sheng at their food stand cooking up some serious southern food and crazy good fudge with liquorice+sea-salt, bacon+burbon or chipotle+lime….pretty sassy. the map at their stand is a trip they gonna do, cooking up a storm a long the way and creating this video-cookbook. sounds like a lot of fun to me and i can’t wait to check it out. you can read more about them here. had the jambalaya with sausage and the best cornbread ever. really good food! the ducks were our lunch companions. cute little french food-truck with a french speaking guy inside..pretty authentic
grow – gather – cook – for me gathering food in the wild is one of my favourite things to do. remember when i went on berry hunt here . so nettle season is upon us and what else to do than go hunting and then straight to the kitchen. first up was a nettle pesto. found a recipe at edible portland and the day after i did a nettle soup from martha stewart you can find here. the only thing i did was switch the potatoes for sweet potatoes when making the soup. so so good and satisfying with the whole gather and cook business. dreaming of having my own little vegetable garden.
Here is a little nettle tip or two from river cottage:
went to a wedding in alvesta and decided to make it into a little road-trip and see some more of this beautiful country. arrived at växjö early and brought breakfast with us. had our rugbrød from öland some cheese and avocado and a view. early morning quiet at växjösjön and so sunny and warm. after breakfast we went swimming. what a morning. the sculpture is by the art group: inges idee and called spiegel ball / mirror ball. they have made a lot of fun stuff. really like their 3D² basketball court in munich….check it out here
in my house we enjoy a good burger. so i decided to do a burger tour of sthlm. first stopin this guide: vigårda. we had the oxe burger with fries and aioli and the lamb burger with bönsallad and the curry/apple dressing. will say the oxe burger was really good, the lamb tasted a little woolen…if you know what i mean…no!? fries pretty decent and the bean salad boring. i like the concept with serving the food on trays, good prices and the fast service…..it is fast-food after all. really liked it but not totally convinced it’s stockholms best burger….when the tour is over i’ll rate the different burger places and get back to you with my favorite.
a this & that post mixed with a little flashback friday. tintin on the loose. had breakfast at café blå lotus. a real good cup of coffee at coffice and yep their coffee did do magic. love the concept at coffice where you can get a coffee, work and book a room for meetings. went to färgfabriken to see an ceramic exhibition by sara möller and i thought it was oh so good. you can read more about the exhibit here. what a beauty. sankt johannes kyrka.
met up with our friends today (which by the way is on a juice diet…pretty cool right!) so obviously we looked for a good juice bar here in stockholm and i came by kallpressen at the green kitchen stories blog. discovered that it was a fellow copenhagener martin who is the owner of this juice bar. really nice guy and really great juice. this juice bar takes me back to when we were living in LA and you could have green juices everywhere (used to live next-door to moon juice) we had the chlorophyll juice and the carrot juice with tumeric and apple and it was deliciously. it’s perfectly located just close to mosebacke torg where you can hang and enjoy your juice….great combo i’ll say. kallpressen is definitely worth a visit.
