It's incredible that it's already April and signs of spring are in the air. The sakura are already blooming in Copenhagen and we've had a few warm and sunny days. However I think that the temperatures are due to drop again. In Finland at my mum's place it was still snowing this week. But before I forget, I want to share with you what's new in my kitchen.
Mikkeller botanical tonic is not so new, but it's still waiting for some special guests. Maybe we'll try it at Easter.
I find these Katjes unicorn sweets made with veggie gelatine so cute. I'm glad that they also made black unicorns. I sent these to my nephew and I think he liked them.
These Chipotles en adobo have become a frequently used item in my kitchen. It adds such a gentle heat to so many different dishes. Now it would be difficult for me to live without it.
I've been trying some new veggie products like Plantepølser, Pipfri and Veggie Bites. They are all very tasty and handy to use. I served the sausages with potato mash, cheese braised fennel and lambs lettuce. From the Pipfri I made cabbage and pepper tacos, where the red cabbage came as fried and pickled.
I've made again some homemade naan bread a few times, and it's always a great accompaniment to vegan curries.
These twice-baked leek and cheese potato skins are my go-to cold weather, cosy night in dish. It takes a little patience to bake the potatoes twice, but they are totally worth the wait.
I also cooked a halloumi, red pepper and pearled barley stew.
I'm sharing this post with Sherry from Sherry's Pickings, who is hosting the In My Kitchen blog series.
Have a great weekend everyone!
