Hokkaido-Bulgur-Risotto with Marinated Lamb Chops

Hokkaido-Bulgur-Risotto with Marinated Lamb Chops

Autumn is in full swing and I like how the trees are turing red and you can find many varieties of pumpkin. My favorite is the Hokkaido Pumpkin because of its nutty taste, almost like chestnuts. You don’t have to peel off the skin, and you can use it in almost everything, in soups, salads, or purees, and it can be grilled, sautéed, or roasted. Here I created a healthy Hokkaido-Bulgur-Risotto, using bulgur instead of rice because of its health benefits. Bulgur is a good source of plant-based protein and very rich in dietary fibre, vitamins, and minerals. The risotto can be served with meat or fish, but also by itself as a meal. Here I served it with marinated lamb chops, which is one of my favorite combinations.

Thinking about special ingredients from Brazil, Cachaça and mango immediately came to my mind. In this recipe you will find both an alcoholic and non-alcoholic version of this fruity variation of the famous Brazilian drink.

Mango & Herb Salad with Grilled Chilli Sesame Prawns

Mango & Herb Salad with Grilled Chilli Sesame Prawns

In this recipe I combined the fruity, citrusy, and herbal taste of the salad with the fresh spicy flavor of the prawns. This creates a mouthwatering flavor of “Summer Time” which you can enjoy when sitting outside and when friends are over. A couple of days ago we got a good taste of summer, which inspired me to create this recipe. Hopefully summer will be back soon after too many cold and rainy weeks in Luxembourg recently. Serving this appetizer in spoons or on small plates or glasses makes this a casual, light, and enjoyable experience.

Moroccan Summer Quinoa

Moroccan Summer Quinoa

This is a light and delicious summer dish where I combine the nutty taste of quinoa with the fresh Middle Eastern flavors of mint and lime. It’s quick and easy to make with only four ingredients. You can serve it alongside a Moroccan Tajine or with grilled fish, meat, or vegetables. The superfood quinoa is also called the Aztec Gold because of the huge amount of energy and fiber it contains. It’s not a grain, it’s part of the seed family and also gluten free.
