Asian Beef Tartar

Asian Beef Tartar

I love finger food, especially during hot summer periods when you don’t want to overeat on heavy food. Sometimes I only prepare a few finger food choices for dinner at home, and we feel very good eating that way. This recipe is a delicious meaty appetizer full of Asian flavors. The creamy, meaty, sour, crunchy, salty, and spicy ingredients all on one small spoon create a wonderful taste experience. If you like it more spicy, like us, you can experiment and add more chilis.

Caipirinha Mousse

Caipirinha Mousse

When it comes to desserts, I always try to create them with a refreshing taste and not too sweet. In this recipe I used fresh lime juice and zest, and also reduced the sugar to only about 10 g per serving. This Caipirinha Mousse is inspired by a recipe I got from a good friend a long time ago. We all love this dessert, but the initial recipe was complicated and caused many headaches. Here I created a version that is easier to prepare, but you have to be precise when measuring. Optionally, to make it vegetarian, you can replace the gelatine with just the right amount of agar agar. The vegetarian version will be creamier, but not as foamy and firm as the version with gelatine.

Turnip Ravioli with Scampi-Avocado Filling and Miso Foam

Turnip Ravioli with Scampi-Avocado Filling and Miso Foam

This recipe is my version of a delicious starter that we were served this year for our Valentine’s Dinner. We went to an Asian fusion influenced restaurant with good friends, and as part of their festive menu, we had a fancy ravioli style radish starter. As you know, I’m always looking for carb-free recipes and I immediately got inspired to create my own version of a turnip ravioli starter.

For the filling, I wanted to use fish in combination with herbs, spices, and creamy avocado. I discovered delicious organic prawns from Madagascar at our local supermarket, which almost have the flavor of crayfish and go awesomely well with mint. For the dressing, I combined Japanese organic miso paste with lemon, vinegar, and sesame oil. Here I also experimented with soy lecithin to end up with a nice foam that won’t disappear quickly.

Orange Turmeric Smoothie

Orange Turmeric Smoothie

In this smoothie I used two powerful ingredients: Orange & Turmeric. Last week I travelled to Mallorca with my family and half way into our vacation, I started to feel really sick. I came down with a nasty flu, can’t remember being so sick! I couldn’t enjoy the rest of the trip and had to stay in bed most of the time, luckily we had a kids-club. 😉 Now back home, still not feeling perfectly well, I looked for the most powerful immune boosting ingredients, and this smoothie recipe is the result.

This vegan side dish is full of flavors and contains powerful ingredients such as red quinoa, herbs, and eggplant, which will help your body to stay healthy and energized. Eggplant, my husband’s favorite vegetable, belongs to the nightshade family like tomatoes and bell peppers and is well known for its unique taste and texture. Every time I prepare this dark purple vegetable, my husband will smell it right away and walk by with a huge smile. It not only brings happiness to people who love eggplant, it also contains health-improving components such as fiber, vitamins, and antioxidants.
