“Knekkebrød”

I can eat these all day, fantastic with cheese on top, or just plain with butter and a little bit of sea salt.

African Peanut soup

This lovely combination of onion, sweet potato and peanut butter results in a fantastic creamy soup with buckets of flavour. This spicy soup is made in a jiffy and is perfect as an everyday dinner. It can easily be made the evening before, and reheated before serving.

Roasted paprika soup with pistachio oil

This is an awesome soup that I make over and over again. First time I made it, my son Martin of 12-13 years old, came into the kitchen while I was grilling the red peppers. He commented that they both looked and smelled burnt, and I explained that this was not a mistake, but the recipe actually is like that. Then he immediately replied, “oh, the recipe is perfect for you, mom, where it actually says you are supposed to burn the food!” I really have no idea where he gets it from ….

Tom Kha Kai

This classic thai-soup Tom Kha Kai is definitely one of my favourite soups. Lovely, pure flavours, with a good kick of chili. The secret is to choose the perfect Thai Curry paste, it has to be red and strong. On a cold winter’s day I just increase the amount to 3 tbsp, to get some extra heat.

Ceviche – raw marinated salmon

Thank you for an excellent recipe, my dear sister Elisabeth! It turns out raw fish can be more than just sushi, in this case lemon and lime juice is used to “cook” the fish, and adds a lot of freshness. This is a dish that can be served with toasted bread and a green salad, and is suitable for lunch or as a starter.
