In my kitchen in August

It’s already August, who would have thought! We’ve been spending a lot of time in the kitchen cooking summer food like the fried new potatoes with vegan “fish” and strawberry salad above. So let’s have a look what else has been in my kitchen.

We’ve had a few veggie barbecues this summer. I usually like grilling cheese and new potatoes and of course other veggies and even rye bread too.

I got these chunky local broad beans at the farmers market and made Mexican style rice and fried new potatoes with them. They were just wonderful and I hope to get some more.

I believe that this Naturli Oat Cocoa is a game changer for vegan chocolate drinks. It was so thick and had a very chocolatey flavour.

We had some vegan ice-creams at the harbour. These coffee and lemon flavoured ones were really intense in the taste.

This new Danish tofu brand is incredible. It has such a nice firm texture and especially the smoked one is very tasty.

Dough Girls is a great doughnut shop in Copenhagen. Just look at these vegan beauties!

I purchased a new silicone form. Can’t wait to bake something in it.

And from the same shop I also got a dinosaur cookie cutter. It’s so cute!

This København Kombucha is really refreshing and nice.

Tins of tomatoes, sauces and beans are always useful for many different meals.

I made stuffed courgettes with tomatoes and cheese. Courgettes are so cheap now so I’ve made a few dishes with them. I’m also growing my own and have harvested some of them.

Here is a colourful tagliatelle with an oat cream sauce.

This is a pineapple milkshake. I loved that flavour as a child. I made this one with oat milk.

More pineapple in shape of pineapple salsa. It’s so good with tacos.

My curveball this month is a blimp that just flew past our house this morning.

As always, I’m sharing this post with Sherry from Sherry’s Pickings blog, as she is hosting the In My Kitchen event.

Have a nice weekend all!

  1. Mmm, lovely dishes, as always.
    A GoodYear blimp - wow! I’m not sure I’ve seen one since the 70s!
    Have a fun weekend 🙂

    1. Thank you Belinda! It was quite a surprise to see the blimp. There is a historic grand prix race in town this weekend, so I think it was related to that. Have a nice weekend too!

  2. hi veg hog
    thanks for being part of IMK this month. I love your dishes! the ones with the blue and the white - so pretty. love all your vegetables and delicious-looking meals. and that blimp is a great curveball:) I tried a pineapple relish/hot sauce recently; it was kinda weird i have to say. I'm drooling over the doughnuts, and i like the look of the broad beans. they remind me of soy beans; similar colour and shape. We are out of lockdown in 40 minutes! Yay!! off to the park for a walk soon. take care

    1. Thank you so much Sherry! It was good to take part again. Those ceramic bowls are nice indeed, I need to get more of them. I'm glad to hear that lockdown is ending for you. That's great news!

  3. So much wonderful stuff in your kitchen, that dinosaur cookie cutter is just too adorable! I am a great lover of broad beans but we see it so rarely in Australia and they seem to be in season only for a few weeks before they are gone again..

  4. Great looking meals and I love the dinasaur cookie cutter!

  5. That dinosaur cook cutter is so cute. And your food looks so good - I am looking forward to spring and summer food as I am sick of winter now. I think the fish meal and grilled haloumi are my favourites of your meals. Your bottle of kombucha looks so sophisticated and beautiful enough to hold its head up next to bottles of wine. It is taco tuesday tonight so that pineapple salsa would go very well with dinner. Hope you are enjoying your summer days before they go.
