And then it was May… The weather is still very interchangeable here, but they are forecasting some warmth for next week. I just hope that the spring doesn’t go over to summer too fast. But first, let’s have a peek to my spring kitchen.
I have a pair of new ceramic bowls and I love them. I got them at the local market and I’m looking forward to buying other colours and sizes as well. And what’s better to be eaten from a bowl than a quality artisanal and organic spaghettone with homemade wild garlic pesto!
We had some small first of May celebrations at home, as it’s usually quite a big celebration in Finland. I made vegan potato salad, vegan wieners and a roasted red pepper, chipotle and cheese roulade. We washed the whole thing down with pink prosecco.
This is steamed white asparagus with sous-vide carrots (nice new product from the shop, as I don’t have a water bath), Emmental-white wine sauce, roast potatoes and vegan nuggets.
There is a nice new climate-friendly vegan range, Frankful. They have different products from sauces to tortilla wraps and veggie mince, just to name a few. I tried their veggie mince and made loaded nachos with it. It was really nice. Their tortilla wraps are also excellent.
Here is pasta with amazing huge spinach arancini from an Italian shop.
I’ve also been making my own pasta a few times lately. It’s so rewarding and relaxing to make. This is a pappardelle dish with olives and roasted tomatoes.
I love this tomato soup from the market. It can be a life-saver for working from home lunches.
These chipotle and jalapeno tins are so practical for all kinds of spicy cooking. They are cheap, qualitative and last for a long time.
Have a wonderful weekend everyone!
