More Veggies #4: Beetroot vegetable pie

When I spotted this Beetroot vegetable pie (plaattaart) in the Allerhande, I knew that this had to be next vegetarian dish. It looked so delicious and simple that I had to try it and oh I am so happy I did. For my readers that do not live in the Netherlands; Allerhande is a monthly magazine from the Albert Heijn (one of the largest supermarkt chains here). I use it as one of my many inspiration sources. This recipe is filled with fresh vegetables (which I all bought on the market), it is very simple and the ingredients used can be easily substituted if you wish, which is something that I did.

Prawn risotto with mushrooms and peas

I had the best foodie weekend ever. Friday I made this delicious prawn risotto with one of my good friends, scroll down for the recipe. On Saturday, after a trip to the market, I had a super tasty roasted chicken stuffed with lemon and thyme (unfortunately I did not write the recipe down of this one).

It has been a while since I went down to the market, I forgot how much I enjoyed it. So much to choose from, really fresh products and great place to shop on a budget. So get ready for some tasty recipes with really fresh products in the upcoming weeks.

More Veggies #1: Mushroom pasta

I love trying new things in life. Learning a new language, get a new hobby, travel to places I haven’t been yet and of course trying new foods. Growing up, we usually ate a lot of the same things for dinner; boiled potatoes, boiled vegetables and a piece a meat and in winter time the Dutch ‘stampots’. Of course those three things would vary every day and when my mom had less time to cook we would ¬†occassionally eat pasta bolognese or lasagne. (I love lasagne) When I started living on my own I was delighted that I could choose every evening what I wanted to eat.

Take it easy

There are some days that I just want no hassle when it comes to cooking (they are very rare but still). On those days I want to cook something simple and quick that does not take a lot of preparation. When I am in such a mood, I have usually been to work and the gym and by the time I sit down with my dinner it will be 21:00 (for me that is quite late). So anything that will need 15 minutes to prep and cook is reasonable for me then.¬†Luckily I became an expert in quick and easy meals when I was living in dorms with 15 other housemates and one induction plate to cook on, since the other one was always broken. It didn’t matter how many times we got it fixed, it continued to break down.
