Incredible, it's the last In My Kitchen of the year! I really love December, even though it can get busy at times, but there are just such lovely things around: Christmas lights and decorations, mulled wine, cosy markets... I love it. But now let's have a look into my kitchen, which isn't that Christmassy yet.
I bought plantbased patties by Planteslagterne made from beetroot, beans and sweet potato and made Beetroot burgers with them. I served them on a wholemeal bun with garlic sprouts and chipotle ketchup and chunky twice-cooked chips on the side. This burger was very nice and I will buy the product again.
I also got these cute white mini aubergines from the market. They would look nice in some creative Christmas cooking.
As I probably can't afford anything else from Dolce & Gabbana, I bought a couple of packets of their pasta. I haven't tried them yet, but the expectations are high.
This new tomato passata also seemed to be such a nice product. The packaging makes it even gift quality. Perhaps a good hamper filling.
I was happy to find this butter with sea salt crystals, as I used to be very fond of this kind of butter when I lived in Britain. I mostly choose the vegan options these days, but occasionally real butter is nice for some seasonal cooking.
Then I went on a mandatory pre-Christmas visit to Ikea to see what they have to offer this year. I bought a new Christmas light chain, seasonal napkins and small tins. I also bought their vegetable balls and sausages, which are both really nice quality. They are a bit more vegetably than many other current products. I made this spaghetti veggie balls dish and my partner made a vegan fry up.
Other foods in my kitchen have been vegan hotdogs with homemade pickled red cabbage and gnocchi with mushroom sauce and veggie Schnitzel on the side.
As always, I'm sharing this post with Sherry from Sherry's Pickings blog, who is hosting the monthly In My Kitchen event.
Have a nice Sunday everyone!
