Zucchini taquitos

Mexican food is certainly one of my favourites. I never liked vegetables before I tried mexican way of cooking. I know it’s not really mexican what we eat, but I never tried the real deal, so this will do for me. I hope my (yes I can officially say it now!) brother’s in law sister and her husband move here from the States and open real Mexican restaurant 🙂 But until then, I give you my version of taquitos.

Mehiška hrana je gotovo ena mojih najljubših. Nikoli mi ni bila všeč zelenjava, dokler nisem poskusila mehiškega načina kuhanja. Vem, da to kar jemo, ni prava mehiška kuhinja, ampak nikoli še nisem poskusila prave, tako da bo ta kar dobra. Upam, da se sestra mojega svaka (zdaj uradno) in njen mož preselita sem iz Amerike in odpreta pravo mehiško restavracijo:) Ampak do takrat, je tukaj moj različica taquitosov.

Quick No Knead Bread

I never liked baking bread. It never turned out fluffy and airy, so I rather bought it. But when I was making a Czech dinner I wanted to make home made bread, so I could show my family the whole Czech experience. When I was browsing through internet I came across this recipe. It is easy and you don’t need to mess up the whole kitchen to make it. And the taste is surprising, because of the honey used.

Nikoli nisem rada pekla domačega kruha. Nikoli ni uspel puhast in zračen, zato sem ga rajši kupila. Toda, ko sem za družino hotela pripraviti češko večerjo, sem želela narediti domač kruh, za popolno doživetje. Ko sem brskala po internetu sem naletela na ta recept. Je zelo enostaven in za pripravo ni potrebno razmetati celotne kuhinje. Sam okus pa je presenetljiv, zaradi uporabe medu.

Garlic soup

I spent the holidays in Slovak and Czech Republic, more accurate we went on a road trip. From Slovenia to Vienna, Bratislava, Mikulov, Brno, Telč, Česke Budejovice, Česky Krumlov and back to Slovenia. I took a photograph of everything we ate, but they have such bad lightning in restaurants, so they are a bit blurry and underexposed. They eat a lot of meat so a vegetarian is often left hungry, not to mention if you are vegan. They put cheese on everything! What I ate almost every day is garlic soup or česneková polévka.

Božične in novoletne praznike sem preživela na Slovaškem in Češkem, bolj natančno, odpravili smo se se na road trip. Iz Slovenije na Dunaj, v Bratislavo, Mikulov, Brno, Telč, Česke Budejovice, Česky Krumlov in nazaj v Slovenijo. Fotografirala sem vse, kar smo jedli, ampak je bila v restavracijah tako slaba razsvetljava, da so fotografije bolj slabe. Jedo veliko mesa, tako da vegetarijanci pogosto ostanejo lačni, kaj šele, če si vegan. Sir dajo na čisto vse! Tako da sem skoraj vsak dan jedla česnovo juho ali česneková polévka.

Spaghetti with brussels sprouts and pecans

This is one of my first recipes I made up myself. (I belive that somebody somewhere invented this combination, so if you know a similar recipe please do share. Or if you have your own that you belive tastes as good or even better, do the same! Thank you!) I bought brussels sprouts and then googled for recipes. But I didn’t find a recipe that would convince me. So I went with my instincts. And I should do that more often. This dish is just amazing!

Špageti z brstičnim ohrovtom in pekan orehi

To je eden prvih receptov, ki sem si jih izmislila sama. ( Prepričana sem, da je nekdo nekje že odkril to kombinacijo, zato prosim tistega, ki pozna podoben recept, da ga objavi. Ali pa če poznaš recept, ki je po tvojem mnenju tako dober ali še boljši kot ta, prosim deli ga z mano. Hvala!) Kupila sem brstični ohrovt in iskala recept. Ampak nisem našla recepta, ki bi me prepričal in tako sem sledila svojim instinktom. Kar bi morala očitno naresti večkrat, ker je bila jed odlična!

scrambled eggs with sataraš

Sataraš (š = sch) is a traditional Croatian food made with bell peppers. But this is my version and if you want the original google it [wink]. This recipe is again simple, quick and healthy. It’s perfect for saturday’s breakfast with family.

Zmešana jajca s satarašom (oz. bolj pravilno ocvrta, pečena …)

Sataraš je hrvaška tradicionalana jed, vedar jo tudi v Sloveniji kar dobro poznamo. Tole pa je moja verzija. Zopet preprost, hiter in zdrav recept. Idealen za sobotni zajtrk z družino.

Mexican quinoa

About 4 years ago I discovered mexican rice in my favourite cook book. It’s so simple to make and so delicious! Then about a year ago I tried quinoa for the first time. My mother made a soup and it tasted awful! I didn’t even want to hear about it ever again, but then I was working as promoter in supermarket. Right next to me there was an amazing cook promoting quinoa. He convinced me to try his dish – quinoa risotto with pumpkin. And then I couldn’t stop eating! I lost that recipe but I hope I find it before the pumpkin season is over.

Now I am trying new things with quinoa and this time I tried to make mexican quinoa. I just now remembered what was missing so it would be perfect – chili! (It is included in the recipe below)

Pred približno 4 leti sem v najljubši kuharici odkrila recept za mehiški riž, preprosto in odlično jed. Nato sem pred kakim letom spoznala kvinojo. Mami je naredila juho in bila je res zelo zanič! Po tem nisem hotela niti slišati besede kvinoja, do nekega dne, ko sem delala promocije v supermarketu. Zraven mene je zelo dober kuhar promoviral kvinojo. Prepričal me je, da se poskusila jed, ki jo je kuhal – rižoto iz kvinoje in buče. In nato je nisem mogla nehat jest! Na žalost sem izgubila recept, ampak upam da ga najdem, preden se konča sezona buč.

Zdaj preizkušam nove recepte s kvinojo in tokrat sem naredila mehiško kvinojo. In ravnokar sem se spomnila sestavine, ki bi jed naredila še boljšo kot je bila – čili! (Sem ga dopisala v spodnji recept.)
