To say goodbye to the asparagus season, we bring you a delicious vegan recipe idea by Mickey Rotten. Served in tempura on truffle polenta with tarragon vinaigrette –that’s something nice and new. Especially that the we’ve eaten all other versions of asparagus – boiled, fried, in salad, with an omelette – already dozen times this season. Bon appetit!
The floret season is in full bloom and we don’t mean the fragrant roses but yet even prettier plants: cauliflower and broccoli. Magdalena Święciaszek went into the field, cut them down and prepared her indulgent meal of the week. We suggest spending more time over them (ideally, invite kids or friends to join you in preparations), separate the florets from the white and green ‘trees’, then stew them in lightly burned butter with nutty aroma. When you try them together with creamy burrata and garlic you will understand that the process was worth it… Please summer, come back! We have excellent appetizer for you!
Since we have already experienced the first snow of the season, we decided to keep the cold atmosphere. Don’t worry, it’s just a white amaretto powder on a pumpkin muffin in the graceful shape of Fuji. A charming twist on the period between autumn and winter made by our irreplaceable Mickey Rotten. All completely vegan.
As a child, I remember that every other kids were looking forward for the field trip. We went to see the park, palace and the zoo etc. It was always exciting to leave the classroom but the highlight was always the lunch time. because we got a very, very special lunch box only at field trip’s day.
I believe in the rule that simpler is better, writes Marta Wajda, the author of our food boxes cycle. That is why my favourite lunches are predominantly one-ingredient ones. This time I suggest you take a cauliflower for your lunch at work. This vegetable has recently been forgotten and undervalued. I love it not only for its flavour, but also for its shape. It tastes best when roasted and served with tahini sauce, pomegranate and fresh cilantro.
The breakfast in Equatorial Guinea is very sweet. It is common knowledge that bananas and sugar give you lots of energy. What is more, sweet food cools the body which is especially important in this part of Africa. Simply pleasant and useful! For us this sweet and high caloric start of the day can be a memory of the summer, soon coming to an end.
