Vegetarian and meat Börek – Graduation Picnic

Excellent börek “rolls” with Turkish yufka dough. Incredibly useful to have as a snack or on a picnic. Fill it with what you like – here I give recipes for two different fillings – let your imagination run wild! One is vegetarian with feta cheese and herbs; the other is a meat filling. I have also done it with fajitas filling with equally good results. Continue reading “Vegetarian and meat Börek – Graduation Picnic”

Quick Spinach Soup

Several years ago I was in Warsaw for a meeting, became incredibly ill and had to stay at the hotel. Room Service did not have any soup on the menu. I called at the front desk and told them that I was ill and needed to have soup. We do not have it on the menu, she told me but I’ll see what I can do. The staff’s food that day was spinach soup and she offered me that. It just had to do. Even though I was ill, it was actually the best spinach soup I have ever had. Well at home in Sweden I tried to remember the taste and flavor in order to recreate the soup. Big success!  I prepare this soup when I am in a hurry to eat something or when I am ill or when I need to eat some “liquid food”. Continue reading “Quick Spinach Soup”
