Cauliflower Roast

As much as I like cauliflower rice, making it is a chore. Shredding the cauliflower into rice results in tiny white pieces jumping around in my kitchen. I simply hate it. Therefore I am really glad that I found this recipe. It celebrates the cauliflower. We don’t turn it into faux-something. We honor it by treating it just like a sunday roast. And we get a lot in return: tender white flesh and a spicy bark. Try this one and thank me later, it will change your relationship to cauliflower forever. Continue reading “Cauliflower Roast”

Beef and Sweet Potato Stew

A stew shows the soul of a cook. Even when two people have the same recipe, the result won’t be the same as everybody makes slight changes. Still delicious but different. I find it even difficult to replicate the exact taste. And that is the beauty of a stew. This time we will use sweet potatoes, as I didn’t eat them for a long time. I combine them with beef and mediterrean flavours just because it feels right and I have a glass of olives that needs to get used up. The result is a hearthy stew, rich, dense, mellow and slightly sweet. Enjoy! Continue reading “Beef and Sweet Potato Stew”

Fermented Carrots with Star Anise

The microbiome definitely plays a role in a lot of physiologic and pathologic processes and you have positive effects from eating probiotica and prebiotica like resistent starches but we still do not know exactly all of the players responsible for the effects.

Easy Roast Duck

Complete with a wonderful side dish.

Roasted duck is a true delicacy. A deep, warming flavour, fat and delicious, easier to prepare than most believe it to be. Not exactly a classic diet food, more a treat and comfort food. But it’s exactly the type of food for a cold, stormy winter evening like today. Also I was able to grab a top quality bird at my local supermarket, a feat already worth a celebration in itself.
