This is an easy to make and just to mix pie recipe without added flour and sugar. With lots of fruits and almond it will not only be delicious but also a healthy sweet threat. With all steps, it only takes 40 min to make.
This simple Thai salad is not only visibly gorgeous and beautiful smelling but also we will do good to our health if we eat it with our without meat. It is an excellent summer side dish for grilled meat but we can as well serve it with striped fried chicken breast. It is important to buy ripe mango, the rest are seasonal vegetables so they are delicious anyways. I always try to use bio vegetables.
The cherry gets a real nice taste from the vanilla and the cinnamon. Of course I was not using white flour this time either and replaced sugar by xylitol. I experience the following since I do not eat sugar: I do not crave so much for it since I do eat it, only very seldom. I do not keep chocolate in our home, so if I wanted to have some sweets, this cake will do, will not even have to count calories.
I used all parts of the beetroot during my cooking. I made a colorful spring salad where I put the beetroot itself and the stems. I blanched the stems and the leaves and I baked the beetroot itself. The end result is very tasty and it is also very healthy. This dish is a perfect choice, even if you have guests since it is served cold so we can prepare it in advance.
Attention: From the plant rhubarb you can only it its stem that has a pinkish-bordo color. The leaves are poisonous. Luckily on the markets they only sell its stem. but those who have it in their garden should pay attention to this. The sour taste of the rhubarb goes well with the sweetness of the strawberries that is why we combine them. I had to figure out how to serve this nice compote. I decided a coconut milk rice that is glass dessert for us.
I have bought some spring parsnips that was full of parsley. This gave the idea to cook a cream soup out of it. The fresh characteristic taste of the parsley was well compensated with the butter and the cream. The garlic crouton harmonizes well with the soup.
I have not even realized that my neighbor has chickens until he has come over and gave me some fresh eggs. I told him that in the future we shall buy the eggs from him and not from the store so we can be sure to always have fresh eggs. In the happiness of having fresh eggs, I decided to make for dinner one of favorite childhood dishes, homemade dumplings with eggs and fresh salad. We used to eat this dish around May when I was a child when you could already buy fresh salad at the vegetable shops. My mom has made this dish all the time so I learnt from her how to make dumplings that are not sticky. I had nice memories coming back when I prepared this dish. And the view that you have when the eggs are scrambled is not comparable to store eggs, they were beautiful yellow. Attention, this dish you must serve when it is ready, as it is best eaten immediately.
In the US it is a must to have coleslaw coming with your burger & fries order since it is well balancing the heavier dishes with its acidity, freshness and colorful look. On top of all, it is an excellent source of vitamins. Coleslaw is an exciting side dish or salad. The choice of the cabbage depends on our taste. I recommend to make it from two different types and colors, from red and white. We can as well add some savoy cabbage too if we like.
I have also tried this dip first time in the US. I am not so keen on blue cheese itself; however, I like this dip because the cream cheese we add nicely smoothens the intensity and bitterness of the blue cheese. It is served with spicy chicken wings, French fries or with steak potatoes in the US. They also serve it with celery and carrot sticks as finger food or appetizer. That is also my recommendation this time.
