This must be one of the oldest dishes I know of, and there’s a reason why this robust, warming and filling soup has been around for so long; it’s incredibly satisfying, easy to make, and dirt cheap.
What a better way to showcase our wonderful Norwegian winter vegetables than this warming, rustic soup? Deeply charred and seared means deeply satisfying, and packed with flavors!
One of the things I found really challenges when introducing more and more vegetarian and vegan food to our diets was how the hell do I make a great, satisfying stock? Turns out it is FAR easier than a meat based!
I have never in my life seen so many misconceptions about a Norwegian dish as I have with Rømmegrøt. Some place in time, some place in North America, a seed was planted, and it developed to THE BIG NORTH AMERICAN LIE.
Porridge was a staple in the traditional Norwegian kitchen, piss poor peasants as we were. Smørgrøt, or butter porridge, however, is the most decadent, rich and silky smooth thing you can possibly imagine.
Here’s a pizza recipe with the dark, rustic flavors of the North! Packed with umami and layers of smoke, this is anything but a boring vegetarian pizza!
Tex Mex inspired pizzas, especially here up in Norway, tend to be really weird, and with “taco spice” and burnt tortilla chips, they’re more like a parody than an actual representation of the Mexican flavors. I’m neither Tex nor Mex, but this hits the right spots for me!
We LOVE pizza bianca. They are super quick and easy to make since there’s no tomato sauce involved, and they are so, so tasty! Here’s one of our potato pizza recipes with robust flavors of the North!
This summery pizza is one of the simplest that I make. But with its mild flavors from the fresh mozzarella paired with the charred zucchini , the fresh tarragon and zing from the pink peppercorns it’s incredibly flavorful.
Few things beats a well chilled gazpacho on a hot summer day when you’re so lazy you can barely be bothered to even think about food. Served with some good bread, this serves nicely as a light dinner, or lunch too!
This is one of our quick and easy staples when the ramson is in season here in Europe. Especially luxurious with morel mushrooms, but oyster mushrooms will do very nicely too!
Fresh pasta is a staple in the Italian kitchen, and with good reason! It’s very quick and easy to make, it’s dirt cheap, filling, and incredibly delicious. It is also superior to anything you’ll ever find in the stores, and SO worth the 5 minutes it takes to make.
