MORE VEGGIES TO THE PEOPLE

More greens to me,  it makes my stomache so happy!

Sometimes I have so much love for cooking great food, somedays not at all. Right now I’m in a ‘bad’ period.
A sandwich with eggs could easily be my lunch for three days.
The other day I made Beetroot risotto which is super easy.

Not only easy it’s delicious to.

4 servings

1 diced onion
1 clove of garlic
3 dl arborio rice

Fry the things above in olive oil.
Rice should get a bit shiny, add:
2 dl white wine
Let the wine soak into your rice.
add your choice of stock -don’t have to be veg stock but that was my choice. Little by little -always stir your rice. Simmer slowly. This takes up to 15-20min. See if your rice is ready to eat by now or give it some extra minutes..

Add on a tablespoon of butter and 2dl parmesan cheese. In the end I added some sliced beetroots. (already cooked)
And while my rice where getting ready I pan fried some mushrooms as well…

A pretty yummy lunch I have to say.

Good luck,

mir

ELDERFLOWER ICE TEA

hi guys,

Certainly been enjoying my days off to the fullest. Bad wifi is like magic to your soul. Totally needed to be off social media . Yesterday was our first day at home. We spent the day in the garden, in our boat. I was paying tons of bills it felt like. Replied on emails and busy working away with upcoming collaboration.

Our garden has truly blossomed out the last couple of weeks. I decided to make som Elder flower ice tea.
Also promised to share the recipe later on yesterday but ddn’t have enough time.

So here we go.

I had 3 glas jars that I filled up with different things:

1 with: Elderflower, mint.

2 with: Elderflower, raspberries.

3 with: Elderflower, ginger.

Pick and mix litterally.
I took a big casserole and boiled plenty of water, enough to cover the flowers. In 6 L of water I added some honey- have no idea how much but add as much as you like.
Let it get cool down,  take out what you added to flavour your tea. Add 1 squeezed lemon per jar.

Keep it in the fridge.

Voila!

I wanted to share my friends recipe on a great Lemon Ice Tea.
No sugar addded. That’s great is’nt!?

Everyone has a lot of Mint in their gardens right now so it’s perfect.

Lemon Mint Ice Tea. 1 liter

2x tablespoons solved  any taste Earl Gray or Green Tea. Tea bags works fine.
1x liter hot water
2x lemons, juice from 1 and slices from 1
2x tablespoons honey

Like this:
Let tea leaves / bags drain into the water for a maximum of 5 minutes. Swipe off (never squeeze the tea bag – please give a nice taste)
Taste it. Maybe it needs more honey? Up to you.

Let cool and serve with ice, mint and lemon slices.

Voila’ I added frozen rasberries..
