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.

Baked apples

Bake some apples for a yummy, healthy sweet treat! First, soak some raisins into rum for 15 minutes. Peel and core apples (I confess that taking the core out was quite a challenge).

In a plate, mix 2-3 tbsp brown sugar with 1 tsp cinnamon, 1/2 tsp nutmeg and cloves (powder). Roll apples through the mixture, then fill them with raisins. Bake in oven at 359F for 1 hour or until tender. Serve warm with plain yogurt and social biscuits.

Apple Pastry

apple_pastryEasy and delicious dessert with apples and puff pastry. You’ll need: 4-5 apples, 1 puff pastry box (with 2 pastry sheets inside), 1 egg, cinnamon, raisins, walnuts, 1 tsp vanilla sugar.

Instructions:

  1. Peel and grate the apples. You’ll need to really squeeze the juice out of them, otherwise the pastry will get too moist.
  2. Add 1 tsp vanilla sugar, 1-2 tsp cinnamon, walnuts and raisins. If you have some rum or liquor in the house, soak the raisins for 2-3 minutes in it. Mix thoroughly.
  3. Spread one puff pastry sheet on your baking pan, then spread the apple mixture evenly. Cover with the remaining puff pastry.
  4. Beat one egg, and brush it over the pastry.
  5. Put in the oven for some 30 minutes (350F) or until the crust is golden and crunchy.
