Roast Pepper Salad

Posted on

To make this salad, I tossed three sweet peppers with olive oil, salt and pepper. I chopped up an onion and put all the vegetables in a baking pan under a hot broiler for 20 minutes. I turned the peppers once, and stirred the tomato.

While the vegetables were cooking, I made a dressing consisting of one clove of garlic, juice from one lime, a pinch of sugar, olive oil, a handful of mint, a handful of parsley, a few coriander leaves and salt.

Once the vegetables were cooked I mashed the tomato and placed it on a plate, then added the peppers and let them cool a little before adding feta cheese and topping with the dressing.

Spätzle with cheese and onion is a definite comfort food, but best served in very small portions.

Breadsticks with Marinara Dipping Sauce

Posted on

I was craving breadsticks so I decided to make these. I didn’t exactly follow a recipe, but made some bread dough with stiff flour, salt, a pinch of sugar, fresh yeast, and olive oil. I let it rise in a bowl and then put it into a baking pan with some melted butter on the top and bottom, and let it rise again before partially cutting it into sticks. I baked it for 15 minutes in a hot oven (220 C), then took it out and brushed it with more melted butter before sprinkling the tops with Parmesan cheese, salt, basil, oregano and garlic powder.

To make the dipping sauce, I panfried a roughly chopped onion and two cloves of garlic, and boiled a medium carrot. I blended the onion, garlic and carrot together with 1 container of passata and a mix of herbs: basil, oregano, marjoram. I salted it to taste.

Asparagus with Mozzarella and Green Sauce

To make this, I peeled white asparagus and boiled it in salted water for six minutes. I then chilled it in a cold water bath, before draining it well. I added a bit of mozzarella and topped it with mint-lime-tamarind sauce.

Baked Pasta with Tomato Sauce and Cheese

Posted on

As an adult, I sometimes find myself craving pasta and cheese. But I prefer a slightly more complex taste than when I was a child, and therefore like to add tomato. To make this I fried minced garlic and then added a tin of diced tomatoes, along with marjoram, salt and thyme. I cooked the pasta while the sauce was simmering. After the pasta was cooked, I mixed it in with the sauce and mixed in some grated Turkish cheese. I put it in a baking pan, topped with a bit more grated cheese, and baked it for 20 minutes. I topped it with fresh basil leaves (I actually used Thai basil, as that was what I had) and served it with a salad.

This is the kind of cooking I do when I’m not in the mood to cook.

I used this recipe.

Pasta with Caciocavallo and Eggplant/Aubergine

Posted on

I sort of worked off of this recipe, but I simmered the eggplant/aubergine in water with a little oil instead of frying them, and I baked the pasta in the oven for 20 minutes after combining it with the sauce, eggplant, and cheese. Also I used a different type of pasta and reduced the recipe.

I was in the mood for a cheesy pasta dish but this was not my favourite.
