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.
This pizza is actually a spin-off of our Viking falafels, and we’re using many of the same components, so if you decide to make one of them, you might as well make the other too. Not only will it save you time in the kitchen – but knock your socks off too!
This leftover meal turned out so magnificent it really deserves a recipe on its own. Ready in minutes with hardly any work, this is the perfect comfort food for a lazy friday evening.
