Mint & Mango Marinated Zucchini Spaghetti

Mint & Mango Marinated Zucchini Spaghetti
It has been awfully quiet around here lately. We are sorry about that. The reason for the silence is that our life outside the blog has been very hectic, but also lots of fun. Here is a short recap on what we have been up to, instead of serving new recipes for you. First of all. We have started working together with two computer geniuses, on a project that hopefully will result in the Green Kitchen Cooking App for iPad! We have also been working on a guest post for Design Sponge. Last but not least, we took a road trip to Denmark to visit Luise’s family. In Denmark we had 5 days of summer weather, barbecuing, friends and family. At the Raw food café we tried a delicious zucchini spaghetti. So here we have created something that reminds of a delicious creamy Italian pasta, without using neither cream nor pasta.

Vegetable Sushi Bowl If Alex and I can agree on one thing, it’s sushi. (OK, we agree on a lot of things. Most things, really. Except sports and salsa dancing – you take a guess who likes which.) We’re both huge sushi fans, which may sound odd for cooks who focus on vegetarian cooking, but we consider ourselves flexitarian: our diet is flexible enough to eat meat on occasion, though we mostly eat vegetarian at home (see this post about why we eat what we eat). As a good flexitarian, raw fish is my biggest delicacy.

Well hey there. Wanna talk beets and self love today? I kinda do, so let’s hit it. Cherubs and chocolate treats are cute and all, but identifying and seizing opportunities to love yourself are about a thousand times more crucial in the greater scope (ahem, DUH).

Linguine della via di Grotta Pinta 45 To tell you about this plate of pasta I need to take you back a couple of years. Back to when I was living in Rome, Italy. I had moved there to learn how to speak Italian, and I rented the most beautiful tiny tiny one bedroom apartment right in the centre of Rome, just around the corner from Campo de’ Fiori. Roast butternut squash and red onion with tahini and za'atar I Ottolenghi recipes Method Heat the oven to to 220C/425F/gas mark 7. Put the squash and onions in a large bowl, add three tablespoons of oil, a teaspoon of salt and some black pepper, and toss well. Spread, skin down, on a baking sheet and roast for 40 minutes until the vegetables have taken on some colour and are cooked through. Keep an eye on the onions: they may cook faster than the squash, so may need to be removed earlier. Remove from the oven and leave to cool.

The No-Recipe Curry Like most families, we have a few favourite dinner recipes that run on repeat like old records in our home. Our spinach crepes are rotating at least a couple of times each month. So are variations of this beetroot salad, these quinoa patties and this carrot and red lentil soup. They are simple comforting recipes that everyone in our family loves and most importantly; recipes that we almost always have the ingredients for at home. I guess we could call them our family’s recipe staples.

Quick Spiralized Zucchini and Grape Tomatoes I think it was on an episode of MasterChef Junior that I heard the quote “what grows together, goes together” which makes so much sense. Zucchini, tomatoes and basil are just made for each other, you can serve as a side dish, as suggested, or even as a main dish topped with some grilled shrimp or chicken. Since grape tomatoes and zucchini are in season, I thought it would be a good time to revive this recipe from the archives.

Summer Pasta with Smashed Tomatoes, Peaches & Mozzarella We have been cooking this quick little dinner recipe rather frequently during the summer. At a first glance, it might seem like it’s just a classic/boring fresh tomato pasta. But when you consider the context: hot summer days, family time, ripe tomatoes in season, everyone is hungry but no one feels like cooking … you’ll realise that it’s exactly the kind of simple dinner that we all need more of. We have of course given this dish our own schwung. Instead of just serving tomatoes fresh, we squeeze/punch/smash them up a bit so they get softer and release some of that lovely juice that gets mixed with olive oil, a splash of the hot pasta water, fresh basil, garlic and pickled capers. Already there, you got yourself a pretty great flavor combo.

THAI RED CURRY SOBA NOODLES WITH with sautéed shimeji mushrooms and vegetables Soba noodles are always my go-to starch if I’m in a hurry – the same way that a curry paste is my easy to use condiment to spice up any meal. Bring the two together and we’ve got ourselves a winner. This dish is easily turned either into a hot, dinner-style bowl or a light soba salad bowl – it all depends on the accompaniments that you choose to use (I usually just go for whatever is available in the fridge) Makes 2 portions Ingredients 2 garlic cloves, finely minced Salmon in Lemon Brodetto with Pea Puree Recipe : Giada De Laurentiis Directions To make the Lemon Brodetto, warm the olive oil in a medium saucepan over medium heat.
