Super delicious gluten free gnocchi. Lower in carbs.

Super lækre græskar gnocchi.

Gluten Free Pumpkin Gnocchi w/ low fat cauliflower sage sauce

 

I know this is the most common sentence in the blog world at the moment, but I love pumpkin! There it is – I said it. Pie, oatmeal, soup, smoothies (yes)… There is only one problem: You can’t buy pumpkin puree in Denmark. I’ve been searching and searching and every time I ask an employee in the supermarkets they look at me like I am an alien… “pumpkin WHAT?”. There was only one thing to do: make it myself.

—————————————————————————————————————————————————

Jeg ved dette er den mest brugte sætning i blogverdenen for tiden, men jeg elsker græskar. Jep, så har jeg også sagt det. Græskar går i alt; tærte, havregrød, suppe…. Mit eneste problem er, at græskar puré er helt umuligt at opstøve i Danmark. Jeg har ledt og ledt og hver gang jeg spørger en supermarkedsmedarbejder kigger de på mig som om jeg er fra en anden planet… ”græskar hvad?!”. Der var kun en ting at gøre: lave min egen pure.

I bought the most gorgeous muscat pumpkin for my autumn super food salad when we went to the summerhouse last week. It was huge and I didn’t have the heart to leave the rest of that pretty pumpkin there so I brought it with me home, turned it into puree and I’ve been making all different kinds of pumpkin-stuff since. Oatmeal, my healthy pumpkin pie and these lovely gluten free gnocchi.

 

Here’s a great tutorial on making your own puree.

—————————————————————————————————————————————————-

Jeg købte det smukkeste muskat de Provence græskar til min super salat, da vi var i sommerhuset i efterårsferie. Det var kæmpe stort og jeg havde ikke hjertet til at efterlade resten af det skønne græskar i sommerhuset. Så jeg tog det med hjem og lavede puré af det. Og lige siden har jeg puttet græskar i alt… Havregrød, min sunde græskartærte og i disse skønne gnocchi.

On a totally other note… We did a race at the school last Wednesday and I beat my pace-record when it comes to 5K running! I’m so happy. I usually run between 10 and 21km so I’m not that fast on a 5K. But I’m such a competitive person, so when I suddenly was facing all the other 350 seniors I ran like I’d never done before. And I came in as number 8 or 9 of all the girls. Out of at least 150!!! I’m so happy! And I was faster than a lot of the boys – so all that running definitely pays off. I’ll definitely do some more sprints in the future. (For the record I did it in 24 minutes, not amazing but better than most).

—————————————————————————————————————————————————-

Noget helt andet… I onsdags skulle alle afgangsklasser (STX, HF og IB’er) på mit gymnasium løbe et 5-kilometerløb, og jeg slog min egen fartrekord på 5K. Normalt løber jeg mellem 10 og 21 kilometer, så jeg troede egentlig ikke jeg var mega hurtig, men jeg kom ind som top ti af alle piger (vi er ca. 350 elever i alt – så ca. 150 piger). Jeg er så glad!! Løbet har helt sikkert fået mine øjne op for hurtige korte distancer (selvom jeg nok altid vil være langdistanceløber).

 

Gluten Free Pumpkin Gnocchi w/ low fat cauliflower sage sauce

I served these gnocchis with the same cauliflower and sage sauce as I used for this recipe.

 

Jeg servede disse gncchis med den samme blomskål-salvie-sovs jeg lavede til denne pasta.

Gluten Free Pumpkin Gnocchi

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 7 minutes

Yield: 2-3 serving

Super delicious gluten free gnocchi. Lower in carbs since the potato is subbed with pumpkin and half of the flour is buckwheat flour.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1/3 cup finely grated parmesan, firmly packed
  • 1 egg
  • ½ tsp. coarse salt
  • 3/4 cup (100g.) corn flour (or rice flour)
  • 3/4 cup (100 g.) buckwheat flour

Instructions

  1. In a bowl mix together pumpkin puree, parmesan, egg and salt. Then stir in the flour.
  2. Shape the gnocchi either by rolling them between your hands (this is easier if you wet them from time to time) or my rolling the dough out into “sausages” on a floured surface and then cutting out the gnocchis.
  3. Bring water to a boil in a pot. Add in a bit of salt and then the gnocchis. They are pretty frail, so I dump them into the water one by one using a fork.
  4. When the gnocchis float to the surface (after approx. 7 minutes) they are done. Strain and serve with your favourite pasta sauce.

Where did the autumn break go? It’s crazy how far it went by. But it has been wonderful. I’ve been doing all different nice stuff and been together with so many of my favourite people – both friends and family. Oh, and begun reading for the big project you make in the last year of Danish high school – not so nice… I haven’t however been able to cook and bake all the nice stuff I mentioned before the break. But they won’t go anywhere, they will definitely happen. I did make banana bread, which turned out perfect. But it was hideous, so I guess I have to make it again soon – what a pity ;)

——————————————————————————————————————————————————–

Hvor blev den efterårsferie lige af? Det er helt vildt så hurtigt den gik. Men åh, hvor var det skønt. Jeg har lavet så mange skønne ting og set alle mine yndlingsmennesker – både familie og venner. Nårh ja, og så er jeg startet med at læse til SRP – ikke så fedt igen… Jeg har desværre ikke haft tid til at bage og kokkerere alle de skønne ting, jeg havde planlagt inden ferien. Men de løber jo heldigvis ingen vegne. Jeg bagte faktisk et lækkert bananbrød, som blev helt perfekt. Men det var så afskyeligt grimt, så jeg bliver nok nødt til at bage det igen – ærgerligt, ærgerligt ;)

I’ve also spent the holiday taking a lot of photos. Here are some from a lovely hike in Sweden. I did also take a lot in the summerhouse, but I figured oceans, beach plants and sea glass didn’t fit into this post.

——————————————————————————————————————————————————–

Fotografi er altid noget jeg bruger meget tid i ferierne på. Her er nogle billeder fra en skøn tur til Kullen. Jeg tog også en masse stemningsbilleder i sommerhuset, men jeg synes ikke lige hav, strandplanter og hav-slebne glasskår passede så godt ind i denne post.

At the moment I eat so much cauliflower. That stuff is amazing – especially roasted. And let’s enjoy the lovely chanterelles while they are still in season.

A super delicious and nourishing salad with pomegranate, roasted squash, maple caramelized pecans and tahini dressing

En super lækker og sund salat med granatæble, bagt squash, ahorn karamelliserede pekan nødder og tahini dressing

Autumn salad with pomegranate, roasted squash, maple caramelized pecans and tahini dressing

 

Summerhouse. Rain. Tea. A good book. Big knits. Cooking.

Six things that are essential ingredients in the perfect cosy relaxing day. Today was such a lovely day, thanks to autumn holiday. I’ve pretty much spend the day dancing around in the summer house kitchen making delicious food while wearing one of my big knits, photograph the outcome and listening to Stephen Fry reading Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows (yep, I’m such a geek, 4th time reading that series). Everything while it was raining cats and dogs outside.

——————————————————————————————————————————————————–

Sommerhus. Regn. Te. En god bog. Store striktrøjer. Madlavning.

Seks ting, der tilsammen udgør ingredienserne i den perfekte hygge- og afslapningsdag. Og lige netop sådan en dag har det været i dag takket være efterårsferie. Jeg har stort set brugt hele dagen på at tulle rundt i sommerhus-køkkenet og lave lækker mad iført en af mine store dejlige striktrøjer, fotografere resultatet mens jeg lyttede til Stephen Fry læse op af Harry Potter og dødsregalierne. Alt imens det stod ned i stænger udenfor. Skønt!

Autumn produce is definitely some of my favourites. I mean, I love the asparagus of spring and the first rhubarb in the summer, but there is something about mushrooms, squash, beets, nuts and apples. I had to make a salad with all of my favourite things.

——————————————————————————————————————————————————–

Efterårsafgrøder er helt sikkert nogle af mine yndlings råvarer. Jeg mener, jeg elsker forårets første asparges og sommerens rabarber, men der er bare noget over svampe, græskar, grønkål, rodfrugter, nødder og æbler. Jeg måtte bare lave en salat med alle mine yndlingsefterårsting!

I found the most beautiful muscat squash at the grocery store this morning, and with Harry Potter in my ears and the ain pouring down outside, this salad came to life. Definitely one of my favourites.

Oh, and for dinner I made this delicious mushroom pasta dish (yep, one of the seldom times where I eat pasta) and this delicious salad – both made by two of my favourite bloggers.

——————————————————————————————————————————————————–

Jeg fandt det smukkeste Muscat de Provence græskar oppe ved grønthandleren i formiddag og med Harry Potter i årene og regnen væltende ned uden for trissede jeg rundt i køkkenet og kreerede denne salat. Helt sikkert min nye yndlings.

Oh, og til familien lavede jeg denne skønne svampe pastaret (jep, en af de sjældne gange jeg spiser pasta) og denne lækre salat – lavet af to af mine yndlingsbloggere.

 

 

Autumn Salad

Yield: 4 servings

A super delicious and nourishing salad with pomegranate, roasted squash, maple caramelized pecans and tahini dressing

Ingredients

  • ¼ muscat squash (900 g.) (or other squash)
  • 2 tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 tbsp. honey
  • 80 g. pecans
  • ¼ cup maple syrup
  • 3 tbsp. tahini
  • 1 tbsp. honey
  • 1 tbsp. lemon juice
  • 2 tbsp. water
  • 1 pomegranate

  2. Heat up a small pan. Lower to medium heat and add on the pecans. Pour the maple syryp over the nuts immediately after and caramelize the pecans. Make sure to stir very often. Pour out onto a piece of non-stick paper when almost all liquid is evaporated.

  4. Chop the cabbage finely and take out the seeds from the pomegranate.
  5. To assemble: place cabbage on the bottom of a big bowl. Then add the squash. Sprinkle on pomegranate and pecans and drizzle with dressing.

Soft and pillow-y, healthy, sugar free and gluten free – and they even contain a little bit of hidden veggies.

Tykke bløde pandekager. Sukkerfri og glutenfri – og så indeholder de endda en lille smule skjulte grøntsager.

 

Soft and pillow-y, healthy, sugar free and gluten free pancakes – and they even contain a little bit of hidden veggies.

 

Recently I’ve been experimenting a lot with gluten free and grain free baking. It is like a whole new world to experience and I love challenging myself. Considering all the grain free stuff I’ve been making recently – grain free apple pie, grain free fudgy brownie, spaghetti squash – you could say I’ve become a little obsessed.

 

Oh, and talking about older grain free recipes… I updated the most popular post on this blog with new photos. I’m very happy with them :) Check it out

Chocolate Avocado Cookies

 

Next week I’ll be off from school (autumn holiday, yay!) and I plan on trying to bake a lot of different grain free stuff… Banana bread, perfect my recipe on grain free cookies, and lovely Dearna from To Her Core has promised to post her recipe on paleo bread real soon (her pretty picture on Instagram made me SO hungry…). I can’t wait!

——————————————————————————————————————————————————-

Jeg har eksperimenteret en hel del med kornfri bagning på det sidste. Det kornfrie køkken er en hel ny verden i maduniverset. Det er virkelig sjovt at prøve, og jeg er måske blevet en liiiille smule besat af det… kornfri æbletærte, melfri brownie, spaghetti squash

 

Oh, og nu når vi snakker om gamle melfri opskrifter… Jeg har updatet den mest populære opskrift på bloggen med nye billeder :)

Chokolade Avokado Cookies

 

Efterårsferien skal helt sikkert bruges på at bage en masse dejlig kornfrie ting og sager… Bananbrød, min opskrift på kornfrie cookies skal forbedres, og så har søde Dearna fra To Her Core lovet at poste hendes opskrift på paleo brød snart. Jeg kan slet ikke vente!

 

Soft and pillow-y, healthy, sugar free and gluten free pancakes – and they even contain a little bit of hidden veggies.

Soft and pillow-y, healthy, sugar free and gluten free pancakes – and they even contain a little bit of hidden veggies.

 

Last Sunday I finally joined pancake Sunday. I know, I’m so slow. The day before I had decided to be a Swede for a day since it was the Swedish national cinnamon roll day – Kanelbullens dag. I mean, who could resist that? So I whipped up a big batch of soft healthy-ish cinnamon rolls, and my entire family pretty much lived from cinnamon rolls all Saturday long. It was wonderful and I believe you sometimes have to allow yourself that.

Sunday I did however think that it was time for gluten free stuff again, and so these pancakes happened.

——————————————————————————————————————————————————-

I søndags hoppede jeg endelig på pandekage-søndag-bølgen. I know, jeg er lidt langsom. Dagen inden legede jeg svensker for en dag (undskyld fellow danskere!), for det var nemlig Kanelbullens Dag. Jeg mener, vi snakker kanelsnegle.. Jeg kunne ikke lade være. Så jeg bagte en stor portion kanelsnegle, som hele familien stort set levede af resten af dagen. Det var så skønt, og det skal man have lov til nogen gange.

Men så syntes jeg alligevel søndag, at det var tid til lidt glutenfrit igen – og det er historien om hvordan disse pandekager kom til verdenen.

 

Soft and pillow-y, healthy, sugar free and gluten free pancakes – and they even contain a little bit of hidden veggies.

  • 2 tbsp. gluten free oats
  • ½ egg
  • ¼ tsp. baking powder
  • 2 tbsp. finely grated zucchini
  • 1 tsp. coconut or neutral oil

A super moist and flavour full dark chocolate brownie with no grains

En super klæg, klistret og smagfuld mørk chocolade brownie uden kornprodukterSticky flour-less healthy-ish dark chocolate brownie. Recipe

In my biotechnology class we have a cake cup, which has been running since freshman year, and the intention is that we are going to find the winner when we graduate next summer. So as you can hear this is a big and important competition (;

My only “problem” is, that I have gained the title “health-freak” in my class. Everyone knows I’m very interested in healthy food so everyone subconsciously expected me to bring a healthy cake last time I was the one to bake for the competition. And eventually I am not able to bake something without adjusting it a little bit in order to make it just slightly healthier anymore. The problem is that there are so many people in my class who don’t think healthy cakes taste good. So I took it as my mission to make up a healthy brownie or chocolate cake, which no one would ever be able to tell, was healthy.

—————————————————————————————————————————————

I biotek har vi den her skøre kage-cup, som vi har afholdt lige siden 1.G og som vi først finder en vinder på, når vi bliver studenter til sommer. Så som I kan høre, er det en ret så stor og vigtig konkurrence (;

Der er blot et enkelt lille bitte problem: Jeg har lidt fået titlen ”sundheds-freak” i klassen . Alle ved, at jeg går rigtig meget op i sund og lækker mad, så alle forventer på en måde, at jeg kommer med en sund kage. Og jeg kan efterhånden heller ikke bage noget mere uden liiiige at gøre det lidt sundere. Der er bare så mange i min klasse, der absolut ikke kan lige sunde kager. Så sidste gang, jeg skulle have kage med, så jeg det som min mission at lave en sund brownie, som ingen ville kunne smage var sund.

 

Sticky flour-less healthy-ish dark chocolate brownie. Recipe Sticky flour-less healthy-ish dark chocolate brownie. Recipe

 

Okay to be honest, this brownie wasn’t the one I brought to biotech. The recipe wasn’t perfect yet at that point. For biotechnology I baked this absolutely amazing zucchini chocolate cake. It was incredibly delicious and no one could tell it was healthier than usual chocolate cakes.

But I knew I HAD to make my own brownie recipe. There are so many delicious recipes out there, but I somehow always find that there is something about them I don’t really like. See, I don’t really mind oil, but I try to cut out as much refined sugar as possible. And most people tend to think the other way.

It has been so much fun developing this recipe. And I’m happy to say I finally have my own wonderful go-to brownie recipe to make in the future.

And it has been tested AND approved by my little brother himself and three of my great friends.

—————————————————————————————————————————————

Okay, den her brownie, var ikke den, jeg havde med til biotek. Opskriften var ikke perfekt endnu på det tidspunkt. Så jeg bagte denne super lækre squash chokoladekage i stedet. Den var virkelig god!

Men jeg havde fået blod på tanden til at lave min egen sunde brownie. Der er SÅ mange lækre opskrifter rundt omkring, men jeg kan af en eller anden grund altid finde en lille bitte ting, jeg ikke kan lide ved det. Problemet er, at langt de fleste bloggere prøver at undgå smøt og olie, men ikke har noget imod sukker. Jeg har det lige omvendt.

Det har været rigtig sjovt at lave den her opskrift. Og jeg er glad for at kunne sige, at jeg endelig har min engen go-to opskrift på sund brownie, der ikke smager sundt.

Den er testet OG godkendt af både min kræsne lillebror og tre af mine søde veninder.

 

Sticky flour-less healthy-ish dark chocolate brownie. Recipe Sticky flour-less healthy-ish dark chocolate brownie. Recipe Sticky flour-less healthy-ish dark chocolate brownie. Recipe

 

NOTES

Instead of applesauce, you can use mashed banana. This makes a sweeter and slightly more moist brownie, but it may add a slight hint of banana.

If you don’t have any buckwheat flour, feel free to sub for any other grain free flour. (Ordinary flour will work as well.)

—————————————————————————————————————————————

NOTER

Isedtet for æblemos kan mosed banan bruges. Dette vil give en brownie, der er en smule sødere og en andelse mere klæg (selvom den er super klæg i forvejen). Men det kan være brownien får en lile smag af banan.

Hvis du ikke har boghvedemel, kan al anden mel bruges. Mandel, kokos… (eller almindelig)

  • 2/3 cup cocoa powder
  • ¼ cup buckwheat flour
  • ½ tsp. baking powder

Instructions

  2. In a saucepan carefully melt together the honey, oil/butter, sugar and chocolate. Allow to cool a bit and mix in the applesauce. Then stir in the egg.
  3. In a small bowl mix together cocoa powder, buckwheat flour and baking powder. Carefully stir into the honey-oil-mix in the saucepan.
  4. Spread out into a greased dish (or a dish covered in non-stick paper). Bake for 10-15 minutes. No toothpick trick here. You’ll still want the brownie super gooey (;

What an oxymoron… Great for people with egg allergy + it’s vegan

Hvilken oxymoron… Perfekt for folk med ægge-allergi + det er vegansk

Vegan egg-free scrambled eggs

Some years ago I suddenly stopped stomaching eggs. It kind of happened from one day to another and I have no idea why. But it’s insanely annoying. If I unconsciously eat something, which contains a lot of egg, everything I’ve devoured for the last 24 hours comes up and I can absolutely not do anything but lie in by bed for 24 hours afterwards. Very nice huh?

 

This is why there – SADLY– almost aren’t any posts containing eggs on this blog. But oh, how I wish I could experiment with different beautiful quiches, learn how to make poached eggs, eat scrambled eggs for breakfast or snack and add boiled eggs to salads for a little extra protein.

————————————————————————————————————————————–

For nogle år siden sagde min krop pludselig stop til æg. Det skete pretty much fra den ene dag til den anden og jeg har absolut ingen ide hvorfor. Men en ting er sikkert: Det er utroligt irriterende. Hvis jeg uvidende kommer til at spise noget med for meget øg I kommer alt hvad jeg har indtaget inden for de sidste 24 timer op igen og de næste 24 er jeg tøjret til sengen. Virkelig fedt…

 

Det er derfor der til min store ærgrelse ikke er særligt mange opskrifter med æg på denne blog. Men ej, hvor ville jeg ønske jeg kunne eksperimentere med smukke æggekager, lære at lave pocherede æg, spise scrambled eggs til morgenmad og putte kogte æg i salater for lidt mere protein.

 

Vegan egg-free scrambled eggs Vegan egg-free scrambled eggs

 

I’ve missed anything egg so so much, so when I first heard about egg-free scrambled eggs I knew I HAD to make it.

And by now I know that I have to make it again.

And again.

And again. Because it’s so good

————————————————————————————————————————————–

Jeg har virkelig savnet æg siden, så da jeg hørte om ægge-fri scrambled eggs, vidste jeg at DET måtte jeg prøve.

Og nu ved jeg at jeg MÅ prøve det igen.

Og igen.

Og igen. For det er SÅ godt!

A totally other thing that makes me extremely happy as of now: MUSICAL HAS STARTED AGAIN!

I have no idea why I tell you this. I’ve just been riding on a huge wave of happiness ever since Tuesday night. At first I was sad the team isn’t exactly the same as last year. ‘Cause Dreamland was one of the greatest adventures I’ll ever have. But then I figured there are still a lot of people left and the new ones seem awesome. And Emma and I have convinced three nice people from our school to try it.

Anyway, I’m just so insanely happy!!! And does there have to be a reason to tell when you are happy? (:

————————————————————————————————————————————–

En helt anden ting, der går mig utrolig glad for tiden: MUSICAL ER STARTET IGEN!

Jeg har absolut ingen ide hvorfor jeg fortæller dette. Jeg har bare reddet for en kæmpe bølge af glæde lige siden tirsdag aften. Først var jeg virkelig ked af at holdet ikke er det samme som sidste år. For Dreamland var virkelig et eventyr uden lige. Men så kom jeg til at tænke på at der stadig er en del tilbage fra sidste år, og de nye virker super flinke. Og Emma og jeg har overtalt nogle skønne mennesker fra klasen til at komme og prøve det på tirsdag.

Anyway, jeg er bare så helt ekstremt glad!! Og fortjener sådan en glæde ikke at blive delt? (:

 

NOTES

I added fresh turmeric because I missed the happy yellow colour.

I used Minimalist Baker’s method to make this tofu. But the rest I made up myself (;

————————————————————————————————————————————–

LIDT NOTER

Jeg tilføjede frisk gurkemeje fordi jeg savnede den glade gule farve af æggeblommer.

Jeg brugte Minimalist Bakers metode til at lave denne scramble. Men opskriften i sig selv er min (;

Grain free apple pie. Refined sugar free, gluten free and absolutely delicious

Last Saturday was quite a big day for me – I did my first ever real cooking job. Well, I did make brunch for my parents and some friends some time ago, but this time it was for a big party. My mom turned 50 and therefore she had invited 20 friends over. And I got to make all the food (: Wonderful.

Anyway, I had quite a busy weekend because of this party. So that is the reason this post is up this late.

I intent to make a post about it soon. But I simply couldn’t wait any more to share this lovely recipe.

—————————————————————————————————————————————-

Sidste lørdag var en ret så stor dag for mig – jeg havde mit første madlavningsjob nogensinde. Well, jeg har en gang før lavet brunch for mine forældre, der skulle have nogle venner på besøg, en gang de havde for travlt til at lave det selv. Men denne gang var det et stort selskab. Min mor blev 50 tidligere i år og i den anledning havde hun inviteret 20 veninder over. Og jeg lavede al maden (: Skønt.

Anyway, jeg havde en ret travl weekend pga. dette arrangement, og det er derfor denne post er oppe så sent.

Jeg planlægger at lave en post omkring festen snart. Men jeg kunne simpelthen ikke vente med at dele den her skønne opskrift.

It’s officially autumn here in Denmark. Officially? How can it be official? Well, my sweet exchange sister described it pretty well the other day: Two seconds after leaving the house she came in again with the words: “It’s officially fall. I need a scarf.”

From one day to another the temperature dropped rapidly and everyone started wearing sweaters. As you might know by now I’m a big fan of autumn. And I welcome it with open arms. First thing to do: Apple picking!

Sunday we went to the big apple orchard a little North from here. I’ve been there before and it is an absolutely lovely place. And the apples are wonderful! We picked 22 kilos (:

—————————————————————————————————————————————

Det er hermed officielt efterår i Danmark. Jep, med denne kulde er det. Officielt? Hvornår er det officielt? Jo nu skal du høre. Min søde ecxhange søster beskrev det meget flot den anden dag: Lige nøjagtig to sekunder efter at have forladt huset fløj hun ind ad døren igen og sagde: ”Jeg har brug for et halstørklæde – det er officielt efterår”.

Fra den ene dag til den anden er temperaturen faldet markant og alle går pludselig i sweaters. Som I måske ved nu er jeg en stor fan af efterår. Og jeg tager imod det med åbne arme. Første ting at gøre: Plukke æbler!

Søndag tog vi op til den store dejlige æbleplantage lidt nord fra her. Det er et skønt sted – og vi plukkede hele 22 kilo æbler!

NOTES

Lately I’ve been experimenting a lot with grain free foods. Its super fun to do – and super healthy.

This pie is totally free of refined sugar – and is in general pretty low in sugar. And it’s made completely without grains, which means zero wheat, zero gluten and zero white flour. Oh – and pretty low on carbs.

The pie is made with butter, because I just wanted to make a grain and sugar free pie, which still tasted like old-fashioned apple pie. And I don’t think butter is the worst thing in the world, when consumed in moderation. And there isn’t that much butter in this pie. But feel free to sub with coconut oil or a plant based butter-like spread.

LIDT NOTER

På det sidste har jeg forsøgt mig en del med gluten- og kornfri madlavning og bagning. Det er super sjovt – og super sundt.

Denne tærte er helt fri for raffineret sukker – og i det hele er der ikke ret meget sukker i. Og så er den lavet helt uden korn – hvilket betyder intet hvede, intet gluten og ingen hvid mel. Nårh ja – og meget lavere i kulhydrat.

Tærten er lavet med smør, da jeg blot ville lave en sukker. og mel fri tærte. Og så tror jeg ikke smør er det værste i verden – så længe man ikke får alt for meget. Og det er der heller ikke i den her tærte. Men du kan helt sikker erstatte en del af det med kokosolie eller det hele med en plantebaseret ”smør”

 

Grain Free Apple Pie

Yield: 1 pie - 8 portions

Ingredients

  • 1 cup (240mL / 140g.) almonds - or 1 cup almond flour
  • 1 1/4 cup (300mL / 150g.) buckwheat flour
  • 2 tbsp. coconut sugar
  • 100 g. (0,44cup) butter
  • 2 tbsp. apple sauce
  • Apples
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup
  • 2 tbsp. buckwheat flour

Instructions

  1. In a food processor grind the almonds until they turn into flour. Transfer to a mixing bowl through a fine mesh strainer to make sure no big lumps or pieces make it into the bowl. Eventually blend the remaining bigger pieces and transfer through the strainer again. Mix in the buckwheat flour and coconut sugar.
  2. Cube the cold butter and mix it into the flour mix. Try to keep it as cold as possible – eventually use a stand mixer or do it in a big food processor. Mix until no big lumps remain. Now add in the applesauce until a dough forms.
  3. Split the dough into two, the one slightly bigger than the other. Roll out the big part – I highly recommend doing this between two pieces of parchment paper. Grease a pan and press the dough into it. Cover and store in the fridge for at least an hour.
  4. Meanwhile roll out the remaining dough between two sheets of parchment paper and place it in the fridge.
  5. Peel and core the apples and cut them into 1-inch/ 2cm. pieces. Place in a plastic back. Add in the maple syrup and 2 tbsp buckwheat flour. Close the bag and mix very well. Store in the fridge until ready to use.
  6. Preheat oven to 200°C / 390°F.
  7. Pour the apples into the crust. Cut out stars (or whichever shape you like) from the remaining dough. Cover the apples in stars. Use the scraps to cover up big holes.
  8. Bake for approx 20 minutes.
  9. Serve warm with a big dollop of Greek yoghurt.

Hokkaido & Celeriac Lasagna. Vegan and glutenfree

Right now I’m on a train with my lovely little brother and three sweet cousins driving through tiny rainy Denmark after the most fantastic weekend in Aarhus – more specifically from the little cosy co-housing scheme in which my aunt, uncle and two cousins live. We are nine cousins who meet here once every autumn for one of the best weekends of the year. + my lovely uncle and aunt of course (; In this weekend I totally forget everything about home, school, everyday life. This is a weekend dedicated to creativity, games, laughing, a Danish ball game called round ball, bonfires, sleeping in sleeping bags outside, apple picking, walks, tea, sausage rolls, painting and being together (“cozy-ing as we say in Danish”) with some of the most wonderful people in the world.

——————————————————————————————————————————————–

Lige nu sidder jeg i et tog med min skønne lillebror og tre søde fætre på vej gennem lille regnfulde Danmark efter en helt fantastisk weekend i Århus – nærmere bestemt i det lille super hyggelige bofællesskab, min moster, onkel, fætter og kusine bor i. Her mødes vi 9 fætre og kusiner hvert efterår til en af årets hyggeligste weekender. + min skønne onkel og moster. I denne weekend glemmer jeg alt om hjem, lektier og hverdagslivet. Den er dedikeret til kreativitet, spil, grin, rundbold, bål, shelter-sovning, æble-pluk, gåture, te, pølsehorn, maling og hygge med nogle af de dejligste mennesker i verdenen.

 

News paper and tape children. It was so much fun to make these. We placed them all over the co-housing scheme. Oh and those chickpeas – I’ll share the recipe soon :)

Rabbits. Rabbits everywhere.

I might have mentioned it before but I absolutely love the place where my aunt, uncle and cousins live. 25 cute red and yellow wooden houses placed in a big circle with a common house, huge green garden, green house, fruit trees, berry bushes, animals, and a ton of lovely outdoor facilities. And I love the fact that there are always people around and ton of children. They all seem incredibly nice. And did I mention they love almost 100% organic? Yep, I’m totally gonna live such a place once. For sure! Aw, it’s so nice there.

———————————————————————————————————————————————

Jeg har nok sagt det før, men jeg elsker elsker elsker det sted, min onkel og moster bor. 25 søde gule og røde træhuse samlet i en cirkel med et stor fælleshus, kæmpe grønthave, drivhus, frugttræer, vindmølle, solceller, dyr, og alle mulige skønne udendørs faciliteter. Og så elsker jeg, at der altid er mennesker alle vegn. Alle virker så utroligt søde. Og fik jeg sagt at de lever næsten 100% økologisk? Jeg skal helt sikkert bo sådan et sted en gang! Helt sikkert! Ih, hvor er der skønt.

What’s even more wonderful about this weekend is the time of the year. Right when all of the fruit trees are exploding. Right when the weather is still nice but not too warm. And right when it’s time for tea, big knitted jumpers and pumpkin (:

Yesterday we got a super delicious pumpkin cake (which I totally intend to remake), which made me think of this lovely vegan pumpkin and celeriac lasagna I made last week.

The recipe is made by one of my absolute favourite bloggers Sara B from My New Roots. She makes the most delicious (and healthy) stuff. Yum! So do yourself a favour and take a look at her blog and make this yummy lasagna. A perfect way of enjoying those delicious vegetables, which are in season right now.

Have a wonderful week everyone!

Jeg elsker at vi lige akkurat holder denne weekend på denne tid af året. Lige mens pære- og æbletræerne er ved at sprænge i luften. Lige mens vejret stadig er godt, men ikke for varmt. Og lige på det tidspunkt hvor det igen er tid til te, store striktrøjer og græskar (:

I går fik vi den lækreste græskarkage (som jeg i den grad hat tænkt mig at abe efter), hvilket fik mig til at tænke på denne skønne veganske græskar og selleri lasagne, jeg lavede i sidste uge. Lavet med efterårets friske råvarer – SÅ guf.

Opskriften er lavet af en af mine absolut yndlingsbloggere Sara B fra My New Roots. Hun laver simpelthen de lækreste (og sundeste) sager. Mums! Så gør jer selv den tjeneste at tage et smut derover og lav denne lækre lasagne. En super måde at nyde de lækre grøntsager in season (;

Snup opskriften her. 

Ha’ en helt fantastisk weekend alle sammen!

Palm sugar & wholemeal Plum Tarts. So delicious. Vegan

September! Welcome back long awaited lovely autumn. Without doubt my favourite time of the year. It’s time for buckets full of tea again. Time for cozy times indoors. Time for long walks in the stunning forrest & red cheeks. Time for big scarves & jumpers. Time for cinnamon, cardamom, apples, plums, blackcurrant, pumpkin. Brace yourself, it won’t be long before the entire blogging world explodes in a cascade of all shades of orange, when every single blogger starts sharing their favourite pumpkin stuff. And you’re damn right I’m gonna take part in that pumpkin race ;)

——————————————————————————————————————————-

September! Hej igen længe ventede skønne efterår. Uden tvivl min yndligstid på året. Igen er det tid til te. Tid til hygge inde. Tid til lange gåture i den smukke skov og røde kinder. Tid til tørklæder og stræktrøjer. Tid til kanel, kardemomme, æbler, blommer, brombær, græskar. Vær beredt, der kan ikke gå lang tid før hele blog-verdenen eksploderer i et farveflor af orange, når alle bloggere finder deres yndlings græskar-opskrifter frem igen. Og du kan bande på jeg nok skal være med i det ræs ;)

But before we start on all lovely the pumpkin stuff, let’s enjoy the sweet and delicious plums of September. A good way of doing that? By enjoying these lovely, super simple plum tarts. And yes of course they have to be enjoyed on the couch with red cheeks from the cold September air, messy hair and big socks. And definitely together with a big mug of steaming hot tea. Autumn cozy-ness at it’s best!

I bought a bag of palm sugar in Indonesia and I’ve been wanting to bake something with the amazing stuff since I returned home. So these lovely small tarts are sweetened with palm sugar – which makes them even more delicious than those sweetened with white or brown sugar (:

Furthermore these are made with an oat- & almond-flour-mix, which makes them both whole meal and slightly lower in carbs. And a bit of butter – or for vegan; use vegan margarine. Enjoy!

——————————————————————————————————————————-

Men før vi tager fat på græskarne skal det handle om blommer. Nærmere bestemt disse små skønne, utroligt simple tærter. Perfekte til en kold regnfuld efterårseftermiddag. Og jep, de skal nydes i sofaen med uglet hår og store sokker på – og helt bestemt med en skoldhed kop te i hånden. Efterårshygge, når det er allerbedst!

Jeg købte en pose palme sukker i Indonesien, og siden har jeg virkelig haft lyst til at bage noget med det. Så disse små skønne tærter er sødet med palme sukker – et super lækkert alternativ til normalt hvidt eller brunt sukker. Ja faktisk synes jeg tærterne bliver endnu lækrere, når der bruges palme sukker (:

Derudover er de lavet med havregryns- og mandelmel, hvilket gør dem til fuldkornstærter, der er en smule lavere i carbs. Og en smule smør – eller for en vegansk udgave; brug margarine. Velbekomme!

A big bowl of delicious no-carb spaghetti with a creamy roasted cauliflower sauce with sage and roasted hazelnuts. 

Vegan, no-carb, paleo, glutenfree and crammed with vegetables.

Spaghetti Squash with a creamy roasted cauliflower sauce with sage and roasted hazelnuts.  Vegan, no-carb, paleo, gluten free and crammed with vegetables.

Welcome to the new layout! This has been such a lovely slow and rainy Sunday. I’ve pretty much spend my day drawing small doodles as the fork, rolling pin and apple, googling around for tips on how to change fonts (that’s insanely hard for the record), making grafics, image mapping, font searching etc. etc. Well except for the time I spend running a half marathon with my dad (I actually made a new PR when it comes to distance, since we accidentally ran a little too far – 22,2km instead of 21.1, haha). I’m pretty pleased with the outcome actually. And a little proud – it’s the first time I’ve ever done serious CSS-coding.

Okay seriously what’s happening? Worpress just delieted half of my post again (yep I also wrote this in Spaghetti Squash volumne 2). And I even wrote and saved the last part first. WTF!

 

Now I’m at it – how does the headlines look to you. I littteraly spend hours trying to figure out how to change fonts and I was so happy when I fonally succeeded and all of the headlines suddenlt had this cool type-writer-like font. But then I checked the layout on my iPad and all of the cool headlines were suddently written with this awful curse kind of font. I really hope this only goes for iPads. The layout is super cool on my computer.

Total change of subject… As my Instagram account might reveal, I’ve been making a lot of warm and cozy comfort food during the last week. Big bowls of zoatmeal, beet oatmeal (! – what’s that even called btw… boatmeal, beetmeal, beoatmeal…), mashed cauliflower puree, cinnamon wreaths… I’m so ready for fall. Last Tuesday I posted a picture of this lovely dish: spaghetti squas aith roasted cauliflower, sage and hazelnut sauce. I bought the zuchinni at the local market last Sunday. It was an elderly lady who had the booth, and she sold all these lovely kinds of zucchinis and pumpkins. Wonderful! Local produce just tastes better than usual.
