I wish you all a very merry Christmas! May all your wishes come true. Eat some good food and above all, stay safe!
I hope that you are all slowly getting into some festive spirit! I love this time of the year when all the lovely lights and trees go up. This year I’m a bit behind with my preparations though. I have some lights and decorations up, but I need to get the presents and send them to those who I won’t be able to see this year (again). But first of all, here are some notes about what’s been going on in my kitchen lately.
These pine cone shaped croquettes were just too cute not to buy. I had them with vegan chicken and mushrooms. I bought the vegan chickenless chicken on our recent visit to Sweden. Pomegranate has also made it to my kitchen now that the festive season approaches.
I’ve been enjoying a lot of gløgg, aka mulled wine, as it has been fairly chilly here.
Have a nice Sunday everyone!
again my apologies for being super quiet here on the blog. I am fine,
but getting a little bit into that usual end of year busyness. I’ve
been cooking a lot, but just didn’t find the time or energy for
posting here. So now I decided to say hello and make a compilation
post of my recent squash dishes, as I have been cooking a lot with
I hope you are all fine. It would be nice to hear from you. Also tell me what is your favourite squash recipe. Here are some of my recent dishes.

Roasted pumpkin risotto with spinach.
Spicy squash burger with a homemade butternut squash patty.

Here are some variations of squash soups. My favourite is a warming squash soup with Thai spices.

Roasted butternut squash risotto with crispy sage butter and garlic bread on the side.
Tomato, carrot and squash soup with red lentils and heat of chilli.
I don’t have many news to share with you, but wanted to post some of my recent cookings here. It’s a glorious sunny Sunday and we will soon head to the farmers market. Yesterday was also a very nice weather. We made a campfire by the seaside and grilled vegan sausages on it.
These dried pea protein products are very convenient to use and go well with so many dishes. I made a pasta Bolognese with the small bits.
The soup season has started so we are eating many soups. Here are an onion soup and a leek and potato soup.
These coconut aminos add savoury flavour to any dish. This has become one of my favourite bottles in the kitchen.
I made Mexican pizza with homegrown bell peppers and Mexican rice with homegrown tomatoes.
This is a cabbage stir fry with homemade noodles. I had some excess pasta dough so I ran it through the spaghetti cutter of the pasta machine. I thought that they became a bit too thin for a spaghetti and indeed they were very good as noodles.
I made a creamy vegan sauce with lovely tasty porcini picked by my aunt in Finland.
