One week ago on the 5th (sorry, we are all christmas-stressed-out, so the post is coming a bit late) we followed a Dutch tradition and had a little Sinterklaas celebration. Since celebrating without food is just half the fun, we thought that something quick and easy but also fancy would be nice to have. We improvised a bit and proudly present now our "Fancy Baguette Burger"!! Delicious minced meat, fresh tomatoes, arugula and cucumber, self-made green pesto and a topping of parmesan... Have fun! If you make more of the pesto than in the recipe, you can eat the day after pasta with pesto: super simple and very tasty!
Smoothies are a great way to re-energize after University or sport. Especially now in the winter your body lacks vitamines, so use smoothies to refill your batteries. Of course they are not only healthy, but also super tasty!! You can use whatever fruit you have at home. You can also use frozen fruits like strawberries, you still have in the freezer from the summer time or you can buy them in the supermarket. Try it out!
We love this simple couscous salad. It does not take more than 10 minutes of preparation time, but it is healthy and tastes good. It is also really nice to prepare it before you go to sleep (put it in the frigde over night) and take it to University the next day. Then you have a tasty lunch and you do not need to buy something in the cafeteria.
Have fun while cooking!!
This is a snack which is made easily in 10 minutes and tastes really nice. Use fresh basil, it gives the baguette a fresh taste. It is a great snack for in between or a good idea to have for dinner when you are not toooo hungry. You can of course vary the ingredients: you like meat? Go on, put some bacon on the baguette. Your loving rucola? Just add it!
We like this snack in its purest form: Olive oil, Tomatoes, Mozzarella and basil.
Enjoy the cooking.
