Tonight’s dinner: nachos with home made salsa

20121105-174856.jpgIt’s been really difficult to update the blog lately. Way too much work, no time to sit down and write. Such is life… But tonight’s different and we’re having nachos with home made salsa and sour cream.

There’s not much to share, really. You need some really good tortilla chips – I like the organic (i.e, expensive…) ones from the organic aisle in Superstore. You’ll also need Mozzarella cheese – I buy the cheap, no name bar from Superstore. You’ll need sour cream, and the ingredients for the salsa: tomatoes, bell pepper, avocado, green onion, salt, pepper, fresh or dried cilantro, lemon.

Mushroom bruschetta

Dinner is probably the most difficult time of the day for us: we usually don’t eat a cooked meal, but go for sushi, salads or other appetizers. Bruschetta is probably one of the favorites – especially since we discovered the small ciabatta breads at Superstore.

Zucchini and acorn squash.

An online recipe inspired me to try this zucchini and squash frittata. The end result was an omelette with lots of veggies: both the zucchini and the squash give it a sweet taste, while the Feta cheese balances the sweetness with a salty taste.

Marinated Raw Mushrooms – with Sourcream

I read this recipe in a raw cooking recipes book and ever since I had first tried it, I fell in love with its natural flavor. This weekend, I added some sour cream to the marinade (I know, not very raw of me, but I never said I eat raw food only…).

Zucchini Pizza

Cashew and garlic mixture.

When my friend sent me this recipe for a vegetarian zucchini pizza, I was skeptical.  One bite later, I was a fan! It’s hard to believe that the combination of zucchini, garlic, onion and cashew-based sauce (no mayo, no cheese, no ketchup!) can be so tasty!

Dinner with Roots and Fish

Root Vegetables by @joefoodie

I had a very tasty dinner last night, so I thought I’d share: a salad made of various veggie, tofu and pickled herring. The three went so well together that I became a fan. I got the organic tofu (firm) and the pickled herring from Superstore. For the salad, you will need: 1 medium beetroot, 2 carrots, 2 small apples, 1 celery root, salt, pepper, raisins and 1 Tbsp sour cream.

Quiche

If you already have the crust, making a quiche is a piece of cake. You can either buy a pie shell or you can make your own pastry (pretty easy, just follow the instructions on any lard package) and freeze it. In the end, if you’re not too fussy about it, you can just make the quiche without the crust.
