POTATOE AND SPINACH VEGETARIAN BALLS

Preparing vegetarian balls needs time. During my cooking classes I hear many people who declare that they do not have time to stay in the kitchen; but I am sure, they could find it ๐Ÿ˜‰ The real problem is that we give priority to other activities that are often not so important for our lives. If we really feel that cooking something, for us or our family, with high quality food is a good habit, we can create moments to do it. For these long preparations, you can, for example, organize cooking evenings with some friends, sharing the shopping, and making a lots of tasty balls for everyone. It can be a way to spend pleasant hours together and do something useful: you can then freeze your balls and create a good food supply. Here is the recipe for potato and spinach vegetarian balls … I hope you enjoy it ๐Ÿ˜‰

BEETS AND RICOTTA QUICHE

BEETS AND RICOTTA QUICHE

When I buy green leafy vegetables like beets, spinach or turnip tops, I wash them immediately and cook in boiling water to reduce their volume. This helps me to find them in the fridge ready for use. In this way I can quickly prepare a side dish by sautรฉing them in a pan with garlic and extra virgin olive oil, or use them to prepare green flans. In this recipe, I will fill a quiche.

MEDITERRANEAN SUSHI

MEDITERRANEAN SUSHI

Two dishes of different traditions meet together: linguine with pesto and sushi … what do you think, do you want to try? ย I am attracted by harmony and beauty of all Japanese dishes. In any Japanese restaurant, dishes will always be served with great care and attention to beauty. This aspect interests me a lot, because as I said in one of the last posts, it is important to take care of aspects like beauty and harmony. Today I would like to combine two traditions: I was in Liguria and I was looking to a book specialized in Japanese cuisine; this is how “Mediterranean sushi” was born. The difficulty is quite high: you will need patience to learn how to make these rolls well … but if you like the idea, I hope you will be excited enough to try and try again until you will reach a good result. If I made it, you can make it. Enjoy the path ๐Ÿ˜‰
