The holidays are over and I promised myself never to eat again... I ate WAY too much of too good food. From norwegian Pinekjøtt, swedish xmas meatballs, pork, stuffed turkey... you name it. Chirtsmas food is great but is great for just one time in the year.
Though since I am back home and on an 8-week-diet before Our big trip to Vietnam, I got nostalgic. Xmas nostalgic. Missing friends and family, and somehow the food. So I made this Soup containing ingredients of xmas love. It has very little calories and it is delicious.
While attending "The Art of Plating" workshop at Berlin Food Week, I sat next to Su from Fraeuleinchenand we discussed if cooking in a dishwasher was a Fad or Not. So why not give it a try?
Actually, cooking in a dishwasher makes sense as long as you have a hermetic container. You can use Weck Jars, Mason Jars or as I did, Baby Food Jars. The dishwasher heats the water to a certain temperature and it stays at the same during the whole cycle... That means it is great for poaching!
When you are feeling a bit ill and outside is still cold, there is nothing better than chicken soup. But why make the same old chicken soup? I was in the mood for some ginger and aubergines and had some chicken in the fridge, and this is what I ended up eating.
Pumpkin Season! Everywhere Pumpkins!
My flatmate got a big pumpkin and baked half of it with some dried tomatoes and feta cheese. But what to do with the rest of that pumpkin? Creamy Soup!
In one of our many trips to Mathallen in Oslo we came across this new brand of Danish products called Nordisk Køkken. We immediately fell in love with many of the oils and condiments they were selling. However, we also had to try their "kartoffel" soup, or potato soup. We usually like to make stuff like that from scratch, but this looked very tempting and the brand seemed to be very focused on quality ingredients. It is all organic and natural without gluten, preservatives or artificial additives.
Since we wouldn't be making the soup ourselves we decided to pimp it! With lobster!
Anders was gone so this was my super quick dinner for one the other night. A perfect leftover meal.
This creamy butternut squash soup with shredded chicken is perfect for cold winter evenings and rainy Sundays. As always, good ingredients are key. We bought Røros milk, butternut squash and the other vegetables at Gutta på Haugen. Our favorite gourmet shop in Oslo.http://www.twofoodieseating.com/uploads/4/2/5/9/42590049/2425523_orig.jpg
