supergreen summer smoothie

I decided to start the day by throwing a variety of greens and fruits into the blender to create a super-duper creamy green smoothie. It worked out so well that I needed to share the recipe. Don’t worry if you don’t have all the ingredients, you can experiment with nettle, celery, Chinese cabbage, frozen spinach… If you like your smoothies sweet, try adding some pineapple, apple or honey. Here we go (for two): a generous handful of sliced cucumber 1-2 leaves of kale handful of baby spinach juice of half grapefruit 1 kiwi (don’t use the skin) 1-2 crispy salad leaves half an avocado piece of ginger, chopped a few fresh spruce sprouts (if available) 1,5 dl oat milk (or almond/rise/soy) Throw everything into a blender, work it until smooth, pour into glasses & sprinkle with coconut flakes.

roasted root vegetables with herbes de provence

Here is a seasonal root vegetables recipe inspired by a recent dinner at a friend’s place. Very easy to do, works well on it’s own or as a side dish. Take some Brussels sprouts, 1 yellow turnip (or swede or rutabaga all meaning the same), 2 turnips, 2 yellow carrots, some white cabbage and celery. Wash the Brussels sprouts and remove any yellow outer leaves, cut them in half. Peel the turnips, yellow turnip and carrots, cut them in cubes. Wash the cabbage and the celery and cut them in pieces. In a large bowl mix all the vegetables with some olive oil, salt, pepper and 1-2 teaspoons of herbes de provence spice mix. Place the veggies in a baking tray and cook in 175c for about 45 min. Check-in on them regularly to give the veggies a stir.
