Sometimes it seems that we always eat the same things over and over again. So we like to add a few different touches every now and then to spice things up a little bit. It could be something we’ve learnt from our trips, a mistake that turned out to be a delicious surprise or a new twist we’ve read in a cookbook.
- Your salads will improve singificantly if you add roasted peppers. Any salad, just give it a try. If you follow us on Instagram, you already know.
- A pinch of finely chopped chives elevates a simple whole bread toast with turkey or cheese to another level. We learnt it in one of our favorite breakfasts spots in Copenhagen.
- Cauliflower should be your best friend. You can use it to make your pizza base, to prepare an amazing tabbouhleh, to replace rice… It’s a multitask champion! Get lots of recipes in this book.
- Worcestershire sauce and mayonnaise should always go together. Perfect to spice up your egg salads or make a new version of the Caesar dressing.
- And talking about happy pairings: mango and strawberry, figs and bresaola, lime and avocado, chocolate and salt, black olives and feta.
- A little bit of fresh cilantro will make your tomato sauce lighter and will add a surprisingly refreshing touch. Portuguese cuisine tip.
- Dollop pesto on your quinoa. Italy and Peru united in a wonderful mix.
- For crunchy, super green French beans, cook them just for 8 minutes.
- A tiny amount of truffle oil will make your scrambled eggs fancy and delicious. Our favourite restaurant gave us the tip.
- Marinate plain chicken breasts in vinegar, honey and thyme to turn them into spectacular pieces of joy.
- Cut a leek really thin and cook it for five minutes in a pan over high heat (no oil needed!). Add the crunchy, aromatic result to any salad. It will make it, well, crunchy and aromatic.
