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”

Ordered turkey pie, it was so good that I thought: I must try and make this when I get home! Had all the ingredients at home, as I imagined I just had to make my basic meat sauce and then roll it into puff pastry. Said and done. I froze the pies individually and forgot all about it.

Vegan meat sauce

When I bought Freekeh I was thinking of making a meat sauce with it. So today I made it for lunch, what a delight! You can, of course, add more seasoning to it like dried herbs, etc. But the basic vegan meat sauce is just fine as it is. Will work very well for moussaka or spaghetti and so on. Just taste as you go and add the things you like. It is slightly more chewy than minced meat Continue reading “Vegan meat sauce”
