Beet & Berry Yoats + Big Love

July 25 2016 Green Kitchen Stories 

Beet & Berry Yoats + Big Love A few years ago we had a section on this blog called Big Love where we shared links and things that inspired us at the moment - high and low. We’re reviving it today as we have too many unanswered emails and comments asking about everything from our favorite places, books, ceramics and camera gear. We also added a couple of other things to the list, like Elsa’s favorite song. Of course we’re also sharing the recipe for these Yoat jars further down in this post. Big Love! o Our cookbook shelf is always overflowing, here are our two latest additions. My Darling Lemon Thyme (by Emma Galloway) is a truly great book with recipes right up our alley (all vegetarian and gluten free). Tasting Rome (by Katie Parla and Kristina Gill) brings back so many memories from the time I was living there. Beautiful photography both of the city and its food. o Luise is in love with the apron that Sara from Sprouted Kitchen made in collaboration with her sister from Stone Cold Fox. Luise is wearing it in this blog post and it can be found here. o The ceramics from this Danish family company will make any food look pretty. Here are two examples where we have used it {uno | due}. o If you are visiting Scandinavia, make sure to check out these links to some of our favourite places in Stockholm and Copenhagen. o Our smoothie book is coming out in the US next week and can be pre-ordered here! o For those of you asking about camera gear. I have a Canon EOS 5D mark iii with two different lenses. A 50 mm f/­­1.2 for all top shots and a 100 mm f/­­1.8 macro lens for all close-ups. I use the same equipment when I film videos for our youtube channel. When we travel I use this camera bag. o If you love kombucha you should check out this incredible guide by Sarah from My New Roots. o Even if it is our third time around, I will never get tired of seeing Luise’s tummy growing. o Elsa is constantly humming on this song by two 14-year old Norwegian twin brothers (gone are apparently the days when she just played with teddybears and sang Twinkle Twinkle…). o Isac’s new hair style - the boy-bun. We call this quick breakfast recipe Yoats. It is a mashup of yogurt and oats (and a few other simple ingredients) that we prepare in jars for a simple outside breakfast in the sun. In a way, this recipe is similar to a bircher muesli as you can leave it in the fridge overnight, but because the yogurt loosens up the oats real quickly, it can also be indulged right away. For flavour and extra va-va-voom, we layer it with a rather thick raspberry and beetroot smoothie (maybe puree is a more describing word?) and also add some of it to the oats for a beautiful pink hue. The layers are not only visually appealing but also more interesting as the flavours change as you work your way through the jar. Beetroot for breakfast might sound scary but the earthiness from the root is perfectly balanced with tanginess from the lemon, sweetness from dates and fruitiness from the raspberries. We’ve tried the yoats recipe with coconut yogurt (as a vegan option) and Greek yogurt and they both taste great. Obviously you can change the flavour by simply making a different smoothie/­­purée. Beetroot & Raspberry Yoats Serves 4 Yoats 2 cups /­­ 500 ml plain thick yogurt, Greek or Turkish (vegans can use Coconut Yogurt) 1 cup /­­ 90 g rolled oats 1/­­4 cup /­­35 g sunflower seeds 1 small apple, cored and roughly grated on a box grater 1 pinch ground vanilla or vanilla extract 1 tsp freshly grated ginger or ground ginger Beet & Raspberry Purée 1 cup /­­ 125 g raspberries (fresh or thawed frozen) 1 small raw beetroot (approx 65 g /­­ 2 oz), peeled and coarsely chopped or grated (depending on the strength of your blender) 1/­­2 lemon, juice 2 tbsp water 2 soft dates, pitted To serve raspberries fresh mint leaves, chopped bee pollen Place all ingredients for the yoats in a mixing bowl and gently stir to combine. Set aside. Meanwhile prepare the purée. Add all ingredients to a high speed blender and blend until smooth. Taste to see if more lemon juice, water or dates are needed. When done, mix  1/­­4 cup of the purée with the yoats. Then divide the rest of the purée into 4 glass jars. Spoon the pink yoats into each jar. Eat right away or store in the fridge for up to a couple of days. Ideally make the recipe in the evening and serve for breakfast the following morning. Top with fresh raspberries, chopped mint and bee pollen before serving.

Emma’s Strawberry Thai Basil Sorbet -- Ice Cream Sunday

May 29 2016 Golubka Kitchen 

Emma’s Strawberry Thai Basil Sorbet -- Ice Cream Sunday Florida is on its own schedule when it comes to growing seasons, and we usually have our local strawberries in March. This year’s strawberry crop was especially abundant, a field of ruby-red like I’ve never seen it before. We went strawberry picking at the nearby organic farm and ended up gathering way more of the sun-ripened beauties than we initially planned. We took home enough to enjoy fresh for a week and froze the rest. Soon after, Roost Books sent me Emma’s beautiful cookbook, My Darling Lemon Thyme – Recipes from My Real Food Kitchen, and all stars aligned for me to make her Strawberry Thai Basil Sorbet. I waited a bit to share this until strawberry season kicked off in northern climates, and when I saw strawberries being sold at the Union Square Greenmarket while visiting NYC last weekend, I knew it was finally time. Aside from eating them just as they are, nothing showcases seasonal fresh berries more than homemade sorbet. One of the things I adore about Emma’s cooking style is her love of fresh herbs. Just like her, I often include herbs in sweet dishes, it’s a little trick to turn many ordinary desserts into a completely unique and memorable treat. The inclusion of Thai basil in this recipe is genius and makes this creamy sorbet even more refreshing, aromatic and summery. It’s also hard to believe that this intense crimson colour comes just from strawberries – a real show stopper. As the heat approaches, My Darling Lemon Thyme offers a nice collection of easy frozen desserts, like Watermelon, Rose and Mint Icepops, No Churn Banana Berry Ice Cream and dreamy Chocolate Cream Pops. The breakfast chapter includes such gems as Tahini, Orange and Coconut Toasted Muesli, creamy porridges, crepes and pancakes. When I turned the page to the Raspberry, Dark Chocolate and Pistachio Brownies, I knew I had to make them right away and have several times since then – they came out perfect every time. The savory dishes in the book are just as exciting, ranging from flavorful salads and soups to big dinner plates, all influenced by various cuisines and utilizing the most beautiful array of vegetables, grains, legumes, spices and herbs. The whole book is gluten-free and I was especially excited to receive it and study the thorough and detailed instructions for the Gluten-Free Sourdough Starter that is used in the Brown Rice, Millet and Chia Sourdough Bread. The recipe for the Gluten-Free Pizza Crust is also at the top of my list of things to try. My Darling Lemon Thyme is Emma’s debut cookbook, and although the U.S. edition came out a few months ago, Emma already released her second cookbook, A Year in My Whole Food Kitchen, in Australia and New Zealand. It looks nothing short of amazing and I can’t wait for it to be published in our side of the world. Below, some links for the long weekend. Michael Pollan interviewed on the Here’s the Thing Podcast Rene Redzepi is the chef/­­co owner of Noma and his Instagram is full culinary wonders – veggies preserved in beeswax for 5 months, pickling wild roses, crazy peas, or how about stale pumpkin flowers that didn’t come out tasting so good :) Nettle, Raspberry Leaf and Goji Beauty Tonic – I’ve been making this for a few months now and I swear I’ve noticed my nails get stronger in the process. Transcendental/­­Vedic Meditation has been on my mind a lot lately and I enjoyed this interview on the subject between Bob Roth and Jerry Seinfeld. Who would have ever guessed Seinfeld has been meditating since the 70s? States of Undress – a very typically Vice show about global fashion intertwined with cultural and political issues, hosted by girl crush Hailey Benton Gates. GKS Smoothies Cookbook – so excited for this! Blog Love – Shelly’s Chive Blossom Vinegar, Laura’s White Lentil Spring Onion Sauce, Sophie’s Pistachio Ice Cream, Jodi’s Rhubarb Panna Cotta, and this Mango Tahini Sauce! Strawberry Thai Basil Sorbet   Print Serves: 8 Ingredients 2 lb/­­1 kg strawberries - hulled and sliced ¾ cup/­­200 g unrefined raw sugar (1 cup in original recipe) 1 cup loosely packed Thai basil leaves - roughly torn ½ cup freshly squeezed lemon juice Instructions Combine strawberries and sugar in a large bowl and set aside for 1-2 hours, stirring occasionally until syrupy. Drain syrup from the berries into a small saucepan, add basil and bring to a boil. Boil for 1 minute, remove from heat and let infuse while cooling down to a room temperature. Puree strawberries in a blender until smooth and strain through a fine sieve. Discard the seeds. Strain basil syrup over the strawberry puree, squeezing basil leaves with your hands to get the most flavor out of them. Add lemon juice, stir to combine and chill in the fridge for at least 2 hours - I prefer overnight. Churn in an ice-cream maker for 20-25 minutes or according to the manufacturers instructions. Transfer to a container and freeze for another 2 hours. Notes If you dont have an ice cream machine, pour the mixture into a shallow, freezer-proof container, freeze for 1 hour until the edges are starting to freeze, and then beat with a whisk to break down ice crystals, until smooth. Return to the freezer and repeat this 2-3 times before leaving to freeze for 2 hours. Or make popsicles - pour the final mixture into a popsicle mold and freeze. 3.5.3208   You might also like...

Emmas Tahini, Orange + Coconut Muesli

April 29 2016 My New Roots 

Emmas Tahini, Orange + Coconut Muesli I cant recall the exact day that I stumbled into Emma Galloways world, but I do remember being completely and utterly awe-struck, inspired, and grateful. Her blog, My Darling Lemon Thyme has been on my highly edited list of sites that I actually read, and her delicious, innovative recipes have been making regular appearances in my kitchen ever since. Joy of joys, Emma released a cookbook, and just like the blog, it is a true gem. Flipping through this book is kind of like shopping in a store where everything fits you perfectly, is the exact colour you want, and strikes the perfect balance between need and want. For instance, I need a recipe for gluten-free sourdough bread, and, I want another recipe for granola. She takes familiar ingredients and genius-ly transforms them into something unique and special that makes you ask: why didnt I think of that?! Sweet Potato and Kale Latkes, Mung Bean Pancakes, Buckwheat Tabouli – the list goes on. Emma uses exclusively plant-based, gluten-free, whole food ingredients, and taste comes first! I want to tuck into every single one of her meals and treats. Although it was nearly impossible to choose just one to share here, the recipe I settled on was Tahini, Orange + Coconut Toasted Muesli, as it sounded like the best and most exciting new way of enjoying granola, and the perfect way to bid farewell to those last winter oranges in the market. The idea of adding tahini to granola was totally brilliant (thanks again, Emma), along with the flavours of toasted coconut and oranges. Yum. After baking, the additions of dried fruit are really special and deliver bright, juicy hits throughout the toasty nuts, seeds and grains. Its incredibly balanced and tasty, and makes a stupendous topping for yogurt, porridge - even as snack eaten right out of the jar. A bag of this on a recent trip halfway across the world proved to be a real lifesaver! The next time I make this recipe, I am going to try it with rolled oats instead of the quinoa flakes. Although it was a nice change to use a different grain, I find the texture of quinoa flakes a little too light and powdery - I prefer the heft and crunch that oats give to granola. Ive even wondered about using buckwheat groats, which I love in cereal. I will keep you guys posted when I try something new!     Print recipe     Tahini, orange + coconut toasted muesli Makes 1.5kg /­­ 2 pounds Ingredients: 5 cups /­­ 500g quinoa flakes 2 cups /­­ 180g unsweetened shredded or flaked coconut 1/­­2 cup /­­ 65g cashews, roughly chopped 1/­­2 cup /­­ 75g whole raw almonds, roughly chopped 1/­­2 cup /­­ 65g pumpkin (pepita) seeds 1/­­2 cup /­­ 60g sunflower seeds 1/­­4 cup /­­ 35g sesame seeds 1/­­3 cup /­­ 80ml virgin coconut oil 1/­­3 cup /­­ 80ml un-hulled tahini 1/­­3 cup /­­ 80ml honey, pure maple or brown rice syrup (I used maple syrup) 1 tsp. pure vanilla extract the finely grated zest of 2 oranges 1/­­2 tsp. fine sea salt 1 cup /­­ 200g natural raisins or sultanas 1 1/­­2 cups /­­ 165g dried cranberries 1 cup /­­ 95g firmly packed dried apple slices, roughly chopped 1/­­2 cup /­­ 80g pitted dried dates, roughly chopped Directions: 1. Preheat oven to 350°F /­­ 180°C. Combine quinoa flakes, coconut, cashews, almonds, pumpkin seeds, sunflower and sesame seeds in a large bowl using your hands to combine thoroughly. Combine coconut oil, honey or syrup, tahini, vanilla, orange zest and sea salt in a small pan and bring slowly to the boil, stirring constantly until melted and combined. Pour over dry ingredients and mix well. 2. Transfer to a large deep baking sheet and bake for 25-30 minutes, stirring every 10 minutes, until toasty and golden brown. Watch those edges like a hawk as they have a tendency to burn. Remove from the oven and set aside to cool. Stir in the dried fruit and transfer to a large glass jar or airtight container. Will keep for 2-3 weeks as long as airtight.   Thank you, Emma, for sharing your gifts with the world. We love granola, and we love you. xo, Sarah B *   *   *   *   *   * I’m also really excited to share some (hopefully) helpful information for you in the new Resources section here on the blog.

Cherry-Hemp Muesli

April 7 2016 VegKitchen 

This is a simple European-inspired breakfast cereal that is easy to make and convenient to keep on hand for a Quick breakfast. Its especially great to take with you when traveling. I find the dates balance out the tartness of the cherries quite nicely, but you can substitute either with your favorite dried fruits, such as apricots, apples, and cranberries.

Smoothie Bonanza - The recipe bundle

June 24 2015 Green Kitchen Stories 

Smoothie Bonanza - The recipe bundle Woot woot! We are so thrilled to present this little project that we have been working on lately! We have been turning fruit, berries, vegetables and liquids into smoothies practically every day for the past couple of years. Sometimes we make them for breakfast, other times for dessert, and always after a workout! We cant think of a fresher, quicker and more delicious way to boost our bodies with energy. Since smoothies have become such a common meal for us, we have picked up some tricks and ideas on how to make them more interesting. Nowadays, we often add extra berries, fruit, nuts or grains to the glass to create a contrast in flavour and texture. We also tend to pour them in layers for a more interesting and beautiful drinking experience. We have gathered 14 lip-smacking smoothie recipes into a recipe bundle that we just have released as an in-app purchase for our Green Kitchen app. It’s available for $1.99 and the difference from the normal (free) recipe updates in the app is that all these recipes are entirely new and previously unpublished. Make sure you have the latest update of the app and there should be a new box with more info at the top of the grid. You need to have iOS 8 installed to be able to install the update. These recipes are available in English (imperial and metric), German, Italian, Spanish and French inside the app. We are of course bias but we feel pretty damn proud of these smoothies and hope they will give you new ideas and inspiration next time you are starting up the blender. Here is a preview of all the recipes. Just like with our Green & Clean recipe pack, 6 months ago, we have also gathered these smoothies in a mini e-book. This is to accomodate those of you that don’t have an iphone or ipad but still want to try the recipes. It’s available for $2.99 and can be ordered and downloaded here. We are really hoping you will enjoy these! To give you a preview, we are also sharing one of the recipes here today. It is a fun little method of ours where the topping (muesli, granola, rolled oats, puffed grains or nuts) is placed at the bottom of the glass and then covered with a few spoonfuls of yogurt and filled up with the smoothie. A quick, delicious and slightly unusual way to have breakfast and it also looks spectacular with the different layers. In this recipe we use muesli and thick yoghurt for the bottom two layers and a simple but delicious blueberry smoothie recipe on top, but we encourage you to use this as a starting points and try the technique with some of the other smoothies in the bundle or any smoothie of your own. Upside-Down Breakfast Smoothie Smoothie Ingredients 1 cup /­­ 120 g frozen blueberries 1 blood orange or a regular orange, peeled and roughly chopped 1 banana, peeled and roughly chopped 1 cup /­­ 250 ml plant milk of choice 1 tsp ground cardamom Layers 1 cup /­­ 125 g muesli, granola, puffed grains or just rolled oats 1 cup /­­ 250 ml full-fat plain unsweetened Greek or Turkish yogurt (for a vegan alternative, use coconut yogurt or organic GMO-free soy yogurt) Add all smoothie ingredients to a blender and blend on a high-speed until smooth. Divide the muesli between two glasses. Spoon the yogurt over the muesli in each glass. Pour the smoothie on top and serve with a spoon.

Coconut Black Rice Breakfast Pudding

January 20 2014 My New Roots 

Coconut Black Rice Breakfast Pudding The holidays are over. The rush of New Years has passed. And now we plummet, head first, into the depths of winter. Well, that was uplifting, Sarah. Okay, perhaps it feels a little doomsday around here with the weather as it is. It rains, it pours, today it snowed, and I have to turn the lights on in the house at 2pm. Sometimes Copenhagen is so dark, I pretend that I am living on some groovy planet in another galaxy far away where there is no sun. For some reason, this makes things more bearable. But you know what else makes things more bearable? Delicious food! Ahh...works every single time. Last weekend I had my darling friend, Earthsprout Elenore over for a sleepover with our babies (and husbands!), and for breakfast I made this Coconut Black Rice Breakfast Pudding. We were instantly transported to another place, far, far away. Instead of a not-so-groovy, poorly-lit planet we were on a tasty tropical paradise island - at least our tummies were - and I knew that I had to share the experience with you. Let me start by saying that I am not a huge fan of rice pudding. I find it rather boring, in fact. But I had a light bulb moment recently when cooking up a pot of black rice, thinking about how creamy and sweet it was, that maybe using it instead of white rice would be pretty darn delish. When I considered the other ingredients used to make rice pudding, dairy milk, white sugar, butter, I realized that this was one recipe that could easily become a high-vibe bowl of goodness with some simple substitutions. Okay, its true that the combination of coconut milk and black rice have been thought up before (oops) but it was news to me! And such a welcome change from the humble bowls of oats that Ive been eating for breakfast lately. My Passion for Passion Fruit If you can believe it, I ate my first passion fruit about three years ago. I could barely handle how delicious it was! The flavour of it was so explosive, bursting with high-vibe vibrancy - a golden, succulent miracle! And can I share what made me avoid these fruits for so long? I simply had no idea what to do with them. Seriously. Id see them in the store, shrug, and walk by.  It wasnt until working at a restaurant here in Copenhagen where we also sold organic fruits and veggies, that one of my co-workers sliced one open for me to try. I was floored. The thing that tripped me up, and undoubtedly many others, is that when a passion fruit is ripe, it looks like something that got lost in the back of your fridge for a month, that you almost want to remove with tweezers. Okay perhaps that is a slight exaggeration, but ideally, that little golf ball should be well wrinkled before you cut it open. The inside of the passion fruit is not much better either: something along the lines of alien offspring. Once past the shriveled visage and goopy interior, youre in for a real treat. The flavour is kind of like eating perfume, in the best way possible. It is sweet-tart, slightly acidic, and bathes your tongue in beguiling, tropical fragrance. Passion fruit is quite the little health bomb too. Loaded with vitamins A, B6, and E, calcium, iron and zinc, the fleshy interior also contains crunchy, edible, fiber-rich seeds. Three passion fruits contain only 54 calories and supply your body with 189 milligrams of potassium, and 27 percent the recommended daily allowance of vitamin C. The final result of this pudding is silky, creamy and totally divine. Ive always thought that black rice has a real perfume, somewhat similar to vanilla, so I tossed in half a pod after scraping the seeds out and it really added something special, while intensifying that unmistakable delicate vanilla bouquet of the rice itself. In keeping with the tropical theme, I went all out. I biked to the local market and bought every single fruit that squeals of sunshine and sparkles and life. Mango, banana, pomegranate and passion fruit were my selections, and I felt like I was eating mouthfuls of vanilla clouds with juicy glitter on top! No big deal at all. Yes, this was my breakfast, but I think it would make a delicious dessert after a light meal too. Today I ate it for lunch next to a protein-rich green smoothie - a fantastic combination! For research purposes I made this pudding twice: once with soaked rice and once with raw rice. The texture of the soaked rice was better, and as a bonus, it cooked in about half the time. If you can remember to soak the grains the night before you are going to make the pudding, it will be tastier and faster, plus much easier to digest. To learn why soaking grains is a very good idea, read more here.     Print recipe     Coconut Black Rice Breakfast Pudding Serves 3-4  Ingredients: 1 cup /­­ 200g black rice, soaked overnight (if possible) 1 can full-fat coconut milk (reserve a couple tablespoons for garnish, if desired) 1/­­2 cup water with soaked rice, 1 1/­­2 cups water with un-soaked rice 1/­­4 tsp. fine grain sea salt 1/­­2 vanilla bean (optional) 1 Tbsp. maple syrup (or other sweetener of your choice) 1/­­3 cup coconut flakes, lightly toasted Fruits of your choosing: mango passion fruit pomegranate banana kiwi pineapple Directions: 1. Measure out rice, rinse and cover with water. Let soak overnight or for up to 8 hours (even one hour makes a difference!). Drain and rinse well again. 2. Place rice in a pot with coconut milk, salt, vanilla bean (seeds and pod) and the indicated amount of water. Bring to a boil, reduce to simmer and cook covered, stirring frequently, until the rice is tender and most of the liquid has been absorbed (you still want a little liquid). Times vary depending on whether or not you soaked the rice: for un-soaked rice, cook 45-60 minutes; for soaked rice, cook about 25-30 minutes. Add maple syrup and fold to combine. Remove from heat and set aside. 3. While the rice is cooking, prepare all the fruit that you would like to accompany the pudding. 4. To assemble, scoop out desired amount of black rice into a bowl, top with fruit, toasted coconut, and a drizzle of coconut milk. Enjoy. I hope this dish brings a little sunshine to all of your lives as we plod along into winter. You know, its not so bad when you have happy, healthy food to get you through. Lets all keep our spirits high, fill our bellies with tropical tinsel and march onward! With passion, fruit, and passion fruit, Sarah B. *   *   *   *   *   * While we are on the subject of breakfast and Elenore of Earthsprout, I would love to share with you her amazing new app that she just launched: 30 Raw Breakfasts.

Choco-Choco-Cookies

November 2 2012 Veganpassion 

Choco-Choco-Cookies I am finally going to get a new kitchen - Yippeeeeee! At least we scratched the old paper of the wall and threw out all the old kitchen units. Tomorrow we will paint it in new color and after a new floor the hardest part is over! As I don't know how much I can bake the next couple of days I produced these cookies ahead. Why they are called Choco-Choco-Cookies? Well it's just because they are sooo choco-chocolately. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do. For about 25 Cookies: 1/­­2 pound spelt flour (250g) 11 oz. raw cane sugar (160g) 3 oz. fine oat flakes (50g) 1,5 tablespoons cocoa 0,5 teaspoons baking powder 1 pinch of salt Pulp of a vanilla pod 3 oz. of any crunchy choco muesli/­­cereal/­­granola (50g) (or again 3 oz. of oak flakes) 12 oz. vegan shortening (180g), room temperature 3 fl. oz soy-rice-drink (50ml) or any kind of vegan milk 7 oz. baking chocolate (100g) Mix the flour, sugar, oat flakes, muesli, cocoa, baking powder, vanilla and salt. Work it together with the soy-rice-drink and the butter to a smooth dough. Chop the choclate and stir it in the dough. For the cookies: form balls of about 3 oz. (30g) on the baking sheet and flatten them. Bake them at 350°F (180°C) for about 12-16 minutes at top-bottom-heat. Enjoy fall ;-)

Green Kitchen Smoothies

April 29 2016 Green Kitchen Stories 

Green Kitchen Smoothies A pre-copy of our newest book, Green Kitchen Smoothies has landed in our kitchen and we are giddy as kids about it (and really proud)! Whilst we were working on the smoothie pack for our app, last summer, we realised how versatile smoothies can be and how much we loved both drinking and making them. We often enjoy smoothies for breakfast, as a healthier midday alternative to sweet snacks and drinks, as a dessert and always after a workout. So you can imagine how thrilled we where when our publisher asked us if we wanted to develop more blends and gather them all into a book that you could hold, read, flip through, give away, collect and hug (or maybe that’s just us?). Our hope is that both experienced smoothie enthusiasts and newbies will find drinks to love in this book. It’s loaded with new smoothies, juices and nut milks, along with our favourites from the app and blog - a mix of simple smoothies and real showstoppers (with layers and toppings). We have also included granola, muesli and nut butter recipes along with lots of really handy tips and tricks. Almost 60 recipes in total, 160 pages thick and a bit smaller in size than our first books and therefore sold at a slightly lower price point (so everyone can afford one or two or three…). Now we are obviously bias, but we think it’s the most gorgeous smoothie book out there. We have put a ridiculous amount of energy into creating unique photos for every smoothie and we have perfected all of the recipes meticulously. This time we even took in help from a separate tester on the other side of the globe, to make sure all the blends would taste good regardless of ingredients, season or location. It is released in the UK and Australia on June 16th and you can pre-order it from Amazon.co.uk (UK) or Booktopia.com.au (Aus) now! It will be released in the US on August 2 but it is already available for pre-orders on Amazon.com. The book is also being printed in German, Dutch, Swedish and Danish in September and we will add links for pre-ordering as soon as we have that info. We are coming to London! To celebrate the launch of the book, Luise and I will be in London during the second week of June for a bunch of talks, supper clubs, events and book signings. We will do a talk at the Good Roots Festival on June 11th together with Sarah Britton, Deliciously Ella, the Hemsley sisters and a bunch of other inspiring people. Tickets seem to already have sold out but I think you can sign up, in case they release extra tickets. We will post more info about our events really soon! The latest info will probably reach instagram first, so keep your eye out.

Vegan Peach Cobbler with Crunchy Muesli Topping (revamped from the Amish. . . and my new "coloring book" obsession)

August 10 2015 Vegan Thyme 

Vegan Peach Cobbler with Crunchy Muesli Topping (revamped from the Amish. . . and my new  I had two bowls of this peach cobbler last night. First bowl was my test picture (does that one count)? I HAD to eat it or the ice cream would have gone to waste. Second bowl was right before bed. No regrets. I have to tell you peaches are one of my most favorite fruits. When this time of year rolls around and my kitchen counters and fridge are full of summer veggies and stone fruits, I am in heaven. Cobblers are one of those desserts that even a non-baker can master. Using an old passed down recipe from my mother's cookbook collection, this cobbler came together in a snap.  It's ridiculously simple: eight ingredients. No stand mixer required.  When I was a little girl, when we had peaches, it was with a bit of cream poured over the top. That's it: dessert. I didn't exactly crave them then. In adulthood, however, the peach became something to adore. I use them in anything I can: my cereal, in my smoothies, in salads and. . . in cobblers.  If I knew then what I know now of the versatility of this fruit, I think I'd have a been peach farmer.  Our grandmother was a fruit aficionado. She'd can, she'd jar--peaches, plums, grapes. She grew her own grapes on a trellis along her white fence in the backyard of her duplex in the city! She always wax sealed her jars and I loved opening fresh jars and eating the fruit from under the lids.  Peaches. Plums. Summer.  And I don't peel my peaches. That makes no sense to me. The peach and it's skin is full of wonderful fiber and good-for-you stuff.   The secret to the recipe is the way it is made: layers--with vegan butter on bottom, then your flour mixture, peaches, muesli topping, then into the oven.  The flour "floats" to the top of the cobbler creating this crunchy layer.  Like magic.  So. Good. Cobbler before. Cobbler after. Mmmm. My mother was obsessed with the Amish. She loved Marcia Adams and her Amish cookbooks and TV show. We'd visit the Indiana Amish communities regularly. (My home state.)  She'd drag me along explaining all the intricacies of being Amish--as if she'd been raised as such. (Which she was NOT.)  "Look, Kelly, they have no phones. . . can you imagine?! No electricity either, they get around in horse and buggy. . . aren't you thankful for what you have?"  To her, it was a magical place, a simpler time and something, I suppose, she'd hope I'd "remember" as I grew older.  Well, mom. It worked.  I cherish her Amish cookbook collection.  I've not been back to Amish Country since. Maybe later.  (*Um, electricity and air conditioning are sort of critical to me. Plus, honestly, I have a slight fear of "farm" animals, too. I have no idea why. Horses are okay, but pigs, cows, goats, chickens. Nope.)  The Amish cookbooks are not the most vegan friendly in the world, but they do throw down some incredibly delicious confections. I love re-creating them vegan-style. Jump down below for the cobbler recipe. I've fallen in love with coloring again.  I colored a lot as a kid. I loved crayons, markers, paint. What kid doesn't? In high school, I don't remember art class being super influential. Could be a teacher or someone along the way that was inconsiderate of my work. It happens.  But I took art classes as an undergraduate with a professor who nurtured my talents through her tough criticisms. I loved the class. I still have my work in a portfolio tucked away in a closet.  She passed away last year at a fairly young age. I went to my portfolio and found the index cards where she wrote her grades and critiques of my work: needs more negative space, great shading, good use of form, try mixing this with that next time.    I graduated and life and making money mattered more.  Art went away. About eight years ago, I took a beginning water color class.  I was lucky enough to find an instructor who tapped back into the Bohemian in me. It was like a re-awakening of a giant. Art came back. I ordered and LOVE Johanna Basford's Enchanted Forest Coloring Book, some markers, gel pens and water coloring markers.  I can't stop coloring and painting. I've made it a morning ritual.  Just a little color here and there.  A few quiet moments to myself. Sunday was a painting, baking, snuggling-with-the-dogs day.  We love days like this. Vegan Peach Cobbler with Crunchy Muesli Topping (*adapted from New Recipes from Quilt Country by Marcia Adams) 1/­­2 cup vegan butter melted 3/­­4 cup turbinado sugar 1/­­2 cup unbleached all-purpose flour 1/­­2 cup oat flour 1 tablespoon baking powder 1/­­4 teaspoon salt 1/­­2 teaspoon ground nutmeg 3/­­4 cup almond milk 4 medium peaches sliced thin (leave the skins on) topping 1/­­3 cup muesli 1/­­4 cup brown sugar 2 tablespoons vegan butter Preheat oven to 350. Pour the melted butter into an 8" or 9" inch casserole dish. Set aside. In a medium bowl, sift together all dry ingredients. Set aside. Measure out the milk and set aside. Prepare the peaches. Make the topping in a small bowl--add all ingredients and use your fingers or a fork to mash it all up until it forms small clumps. Now pour the milk into the flour mixture, mix with a fork--the batter will be a bit thin. Then pour this on top of the butter in the dish. Do not stir! Place peaches on top of the batter, then add topping over the peaches. Bake for 55 minutes or until the top of the cobbler begins to brown around the edges. Remove from oven and allow to cool for thirty minutes. Serve over vegan vanilla ice cream for the ultimate experience. Store any left overs in fridge. 

Smoothie Bonanza - 14 new recipes

June 24 2015 Green Kitchen Stories 

Smoothie Bonanza - 14 new recipes Woot woot! We are so thrilled to present this little project that we have been working on lately! We have been turning fruit, berries, vegetables and liquids into smoothies practically every day for the past couple of years. Sometimes we make them for breakfast, other times for dessert, and always after a workout! We cant think of a fresher, quicker and more delicious way to boost our bodies with energy. Since smoothies have become such a common meal for us, we have picked up some tricks and ideas on how to make them more interesting. Nowadays, we often add extra berries, fruit, nuts or grains to the glass to create a contrast in flavour and texture. We also tend to pour them in layers for a more interesting and beautiful drinking experience. We have gathered 14 lip-smacking smoothie recipes into a recipe bundle that we just have released as an in-app purchase for our Green Kitchen app. It’s available for $1.99 and the difference from the normal (free) recipe updates in the app is that all these recipes are entirely new and previously unpublished. Make sure you have the latest update of the app and there should be a new box with more info at the top of the grid. You need to have iOS 8 installed to be able to install the update. These recipes are available in English (imperial and metric), German, Italian, Spanish and French inside the app. We are of course bias but we feel pretty damn proud of these smoothies and hope they will give you new ideas and inspiration next time you are starting up the blender. Here is a preview of all the recipes. Just like with our Green & Clean recipe pack, 6 months ago, we have also gathered these smoothies in a mini e-book. This is to accomodate those of you that don’t have an iphone or ipad but still want to try the recipes. It’s available for $2.99 and can be ordered and downloaded here. We are really hoping you will enjoy these! To give you a preview, we are also sharing one of the recipes here today. It is a fun little method of ours where the topping (muesli, granola, rolled oats, puffed grains or nuts) is placed at the bottom of the glass and then covered with a few spoonfuls of yogurt and filled up with the smoothie. A quick, delicious and slightly unusual way to have breakfast and it also looks spectacular with the different layers. In this recipe we use muesli and thick yoghurt for the bottom two layers and a simple but delicious blueberry smoothie recipe on top, but we encourage you to use this as a starting points and try the technique with some of the other smoothies in the bundle or any smoothie of your own. Upside-Down Breakfast Smoothie Smoothie Ingredients 1 cup /­­ 120 g frozen blueberries 1 blood orange or a regular orange, peeled and roughly chopped 1 banana, peeled and roughly chopped 1 cup /­­ 250 ml plant milk of choice 1 tsp ground cardamom Layers 1 cup /­­ 125 g muesli, granola, puffed grains or just rolled oats 1 cup /­­ 250 ml full-fat plain unsweetened Greek or Turkish yogurt (for a vegan alternative, use coconut yogurt or organic GMO-free soy yogurt) Add all smoothie ingredients to a blender and blend on a high-speed until smooth. Divide the muesli between two glasses. Spoon the yogurt over the muesli in each glass. Pour the smoothie on top and serve with a spoon.
