Spring Soup with Vitamin Power

April 6th, 2018 | main dishes

After the gourmet days for Easter, now it is going on lighter again. Outside, the first tender green shows up – and it must also be light and green on the plate. Pea green.

Spring Soup with Vitamin Power

Super simple, super delicious, super healthy – You should try it!

Spring soup with coconut milk and mint

(4 portions)

600 g of carrots
200 g parsnips or zucchini
cut into spaghetti shape with the spiral cutter
500 ml vegetable stock
cook the vegetable spaghetti in the broth for 2-5 minutes until al dente, lift with the skimmer from the broth and keep warm
1 onion, chopped
2 garlic cloves, chopped
1 TS rapeseed oil
fry the onion and garlic in oil
400 ml of coconut milk
pour coconut milk and broth, add
300 g frozen peas
bring to a boil
1 lemon (grated peel & juice)
add 1 ts of lemon zest, simmer for 5 minutes, puree
salt, freshly ground pepper
season with salt, pepper and a dash of lemon juice
5 stems of mint
place the vegetable spaghetti on top of the soup and serve garnished with mint leaves

And this is how the wife of the captain does it

If you do not have a spiral cutter, use an asparagus peeler. This produces vegetables in tagliatelle instead of spaghetti shape. It’s a bit more laborious but tastes just as good.

In a few days my dearest captain will leave to sign on his next ship.

Hamburg Brown Biscuits for 3rd Advent

The advent dream of my childhood: the original Hamburg Brown Biscuits. In my grandma’s recipe book in grain and lot, today it is more feasible in grams and teaspoons – my favourite pastries for Christmas! The photo is some years old. Then, our children stamped names on the cookies – a nice idea as a small Christmas gift.

Sauerbraten of deer with marinated with dark beer, dumplings and red cabbage December 18th, 2018 | main dishes

Sauerbraten of deer with dark beer

A venison roast prepared as Sauerbraten is a tasteful experience. The sauce is made with dark, strong beer. This not only gives the whole roast a nice color, but also malty, very strong aromas. Lucky the one who has a good connection to a forester…
