Wait for a moment! If you are looking for recipes for the pictures below, I’m sorry but they are not there (at least yet). This new project – Last 7 days of cooking – will only show you pictures of food I cooked in the last week. I know it might be unfair to share only the results without the recipes but, frankly speaking, I do not have them ready! But I’m working on it :-)
Let me make it clear why I started this. I tend to buy certain ingredients every time I go grocery shopping – for instance, zucchini, carrots, potatoes, celery, eggs and so on – so I instinctively cook similar dishes very often. I thought that posting my meals here could help me cook the same ingredients in different ways and make a better meal plan. That’s because people are looking at my meals ;-) Does it make sense? Anyway, I hope that this new project will foster ideas for healthy and varied food. Let’s see what happened in the last 7 days!
When I lived in Korea, I’ve never seen lentils. They were not common at all, but nowadays are getting more popular. They can be used for soup or served as a side dish, as in the lentil stew I made.
I usually have carbonara with spaghetti, but this time I used tortiglioni. It was pretty good because the egg sauce sticked to the pasta very well.
Poached egg is one of my favorite dishes. It is especially good when combined with vegetables, such as sautéed zucchini.
A typical Italian antipasto includes air dried meats, cheese, and pickled or roasted vegetables. Here there are prosciutto and melone, lonza (capocollo), salami, roasted peppers, parmesan, olives from Taggia, cave aged cheese and parmesan.
Japchae is made with sweet potato noodles and different stir fried vegetables. It is one of the most famous Korean dishes.
Spelt salad is an alternative to the regular pasta salad. This “Finnish” version has smoked salmon and arugula.
