Stuffed paprikas with minced beef and feta cheese

What do you do when you might have overshopped a little at the market and you still have four paprikas in the fridge, which you really need to eat within now and two days? Yes, you make roasted, stuffed paprikas. It has been a while since I made them and I forgot how simple they were to make. They really do not take up a lot of your time, but you do get maximum flavour. If you of course use the right herbs, spices and fillings, but don’t worry I have a recipe here that you have to try if you are planning on making them.

Spicy pork strips in soy sauce

Do you like spicy food? Then look no further I got the dish for you. These spicy pork strips in soy sauce are, well spicy. But don’t worry if you use the right amount of peppers you will be just fine. And if you are a bit stubborn like I am then, well, you will definately know how much to use the next you cook it.

More veggies #3: red lentil curry

Week 3. I really start to be more creative with my food and recipes. I was already thinking of making this dish when I first cooked red lentils. I thought they were going to be similar to black lentils, which are quite firm. But these red ones fell apart and the dish that I made then was somewhat ruined. I researched red lentils for a bit and found that most people use it for red lentil soup and red lentil curry, so this could not miss my More Veggies challenge.

More Veggies #2: Carrot burgers

I am entering week 4 now of my personal vegetarian challenge. For those of you who haven’t read it, I am cutting down my meat consumption by eating vegetarian at least once a week. In my first week I made a vegetarian, homemade pasta. You can read the recipe of it here. So far this personal challenge has triggered my creativity when it comes to making food. I am learning new things, new recipes and start to use products that I haven’t before. One of these products are chickpeas. I have them (unprocessed) stored away in a jar in my kitchen and last week, after talking to one of my colleagues, I finally knew what I wanted to make of them; my first veggie-burger. They are healthy, tasty, colourful.. Need I say more? Click that read more button to read the recipe.

Just a little different

The colder months of the year. It is a time where I like to spent time in the kitchen even more than usual. I take more time to prepare meals and put more thought into the dishes that I make. I suppose that has also to do with the fact that right now it is the warmest place in the house.

This dish that I made earlier this week is right up my winter comfort food street. It is simple, reasonably quick to make (30-45 min) and just a little different than usual.

Stepping into the comfort zone

Tired, hungry and cold. Those three things that went through my head  I was cycling home from work on Thursday fantasising about that greasy portion of chips I was going to order as soon as I was home. When I finally came home I realised I would rather have a big plate of steaming comfort food. Semi-healthy comfort food. Anyway it would be better than greasy chips and without a doubt much tastier too
