Japanese Green Tea Moment

IMG_1871

I love green tea, it’s been my favorite for many years and I remember few years ago when I lived in London one of my co-workers brought me this tea when she went visiting home in Japan. I got these from a local japanese store, but it tastes the same. I mix one pack of sencha tea with just a hint of matcha powder to give it the juicy fresh taste.

I’ve been doing some pilates & yoga lately so I have usually enjoyed a cup of fresh green tea after my work out. It gives me energy to get back in my busy life feeling refreshed and relaxed, newly energised.

Have a wonderful day! :-)

Exotic Fresh Fruit Platter

104Hi all! :-) Over the weekend I tried out some exotic fruits and wanted to enjoy some healthier dessert after dinner. These were a bit pricey to be honest, but still I think it’s worth the money every now and then. 092I was really looking forward to taste Pitaya or so called Dragon Fruit, it has been on instagram for ages now and is trending worldwide so thought is the time to give it a go! The taste was a real suprise, as it looks so pretty, pink and quite extraordinery and divine, it tasted something like honey melon cucumber. During the hot summer months this fruit would be great to just spoon in straight from the fridge. I also tried out some fresh figs, kumkvats, pineapple cherries, pineapple, mango, papaya, coconut, passion fruit & tamarillo.

088

Tamarillo is a fruit from New Zealand and Asia, it’s related to tomato and kiwi fruit as far as I know. It tasted a little bit sour and I think it would make a great tomato style relish or pickle for autumn gourmet burger menu!087

Have a great day! :-)

Creamy & Cheesy White Bean Pasta Bake

IMG_1906
To make this yummy, filling comfort food you will need macaroni pasta 2 dl, 2 dl white beans in a can, 1,5 dl milk, 2 eggs, herbs of your choice, black pepper or pepper mix and hint of salt. 2 garlic cloves pureed, grated cheese as much as you wish!
Also I used some real butter to butter the tin as well as added some extra butter just before adding the cheese on top at the end. So just bake it around 30 mins in 200’C and then add the cheese, bake for extra 10 min in 225’C. I also added some fresh herbs on top at the end.
I just love this style of comfort food every now and then,
hope you like it! :)

This was so delicious! Perfect for after dinner treat for those sugar cravings and the best thing is, it is almost healthy. ;) To create this sweet thing you will need some greek yoghurt, fresh raspberries, honey, freshly grated lemon peel, grated lemon white chocolate, almond flakes (or whole ones, ground almonds etc..)

Just spoon some yoghurt on a glass or a bowl, add some raspberries, more yogurt and top it up with some lemon peel, white chocolate and almond flakes. Yummy! :)

light open sandwiches that are great for lunch or just a quick snack as well.

You will need two slices of whole wheat toast,

olive oil, green lettuce, cucumber slices, avocado slices, black pepper and salt.

Enjoy! :)

Thai Basil & Pineapple Chili Lime Noodles

IMG_1178

I absolutely love this noodle recipe! It’s sweet, but chili gives it a little kick and lime gives some tang. Just dice 1 red onion and fry it in a wok pan, throw in some dried chili, pepper, salt. Cut vegetables quite large pieces as then they stay fresh and won’t soften as easy. You’ll need 1 orange pepper, 1 courgette, water chestnut can (rinse them gently before use), pineapple can, garlic gloves and grated fresh ginger. Bring water to boil and cook noodles for maximum 2 minutes. Rinse after with cold water and pour some sesame oil and mix. Add in the wok pan, throw some sweet chili sauce and soya sauce. Add 1 lime zest and juice, as well as some fresh spring onion, chives and sweet thai basil on top. Enjoy! :)

Cucumber & Lime Soup

015

Cucumbers are used in Scandinavian kitchen, I really love this cool soup for hot summer days. Just need two cucumbers, slice them in small cubes. 1,5 l vegetable stock, 1 lime, lemon pepper. Throw 1 cubed onion on a hot pan and gently fry in oil, add cucumber and leave for 5 mins. Add vegetable stock and let it simmer 5 minutes. Add lime juice and leave for extra 5 minutes. Add all seasoning and let it cool down for 15 minutes. ( I just put it in the sink, in a large bowl and let it cool down.) Ten refrigerate and once serving add cream. I got the idea from Jamie Oliver recipe!

Voila!

Start moisten the bottom layer and spread some puree or jam, as well as the vanilla cream & yogurt mix. Add all layers and spread the mix all over the top and sides.
