I have been lagging a bit and I need to catch up and therefore I will post some quick dishes without exact recipes!
Butternut pumpkin soup
Fry pumpkin with onions and broth until tender.
Take it off the stove and mix it with a immersion blender!
Add some coconut milk, salt and pepper.
Enjoy! Really good flavour and Sara absolutely loved it, the left overs disappeared quickly....
Saturday mehican evening!
Beef chuck diced and trimmed of the worst fat.
Fry the beef with lots of chopped onion, boil some dried chilies.
Add spices to the beef and onions.
Kumin, Salt, Sugar, Oregano, Flour, Koriander, Pepper and chili powder and paprika powder.
Add water and beer so meat is covered and turn up the heat.
While that is cooking, make some pickled red onion!
2dl white wine vinegar.
2 red onions finely chopped
and 1 bay leaf.
Boil it for 30 sec and then cool off and put in a jar.
Top left you can see my homemade salsa roja.
6 Garlic cloves, 4 tomatoes, 1 onion diced, 1-4 dried chilies (of your choice!) and some coriander.
Slice into wedges and boil for 40 minutes, then pass through a sieve to remove skin and seeds.
After boiling for 5-6 hours your beef should look like this. Add water every now and then so the meat is always covered and doesn't burn... It should be juicy and pull apart easily!
Mehican evening part 2 chocolate meringue
Dark chocolate, butter, sugar on a crumble pie crust made with flour, sugar and butter.
Topped with meringue on top.
Into the oven for 6-7 minutes
Sara made most of the dessert and it was quite light with a heavy chocolate flavour. The crust came out a bit hard though but otherwise it was very nice.
I don't have the exact measurements right now, but if you want them just let me know!
Tortilla bred, feta cheese, 2 poached eggs and covered in Salsa Roja!
Tasty and easy to make! Poaching is much easier than you think!
There's a lot of good guides online.
