I am back!

quite ridiculous to resume this blog after more than a year, but hey. we have moved and had another baby and keep cooking and growing! only we`ve not had new things in days - the already posted wok veg (though with rice), the carrot pasta sauce… but this was new and nice:

tofu spread

a pack of tofu
4 tbsp walnut oil
4-6 tbsp walnuts
2-3 tbsp soy sauce
some chilli powder or black pepper
blend. nice with spelt bread.

we`ve had an amazing Easter brunch with our neighbours; here‘s a few things we made –

mushroom cream cheese

coarsely blend:
some sauteed mushrooms
plenty of dried or fresh herbs
cream cheese
black pepper

Slowenian Easter bread (I had to make this twice as it didn't rise first time around!)

500g plain or strong white flour
35g live yeast or 4 tsp dried yeast
180 ml lukewarm milk or water

Put the flour in a bowl. Make a well in the centre. Dissolve the yeast in the milk or water and wait till it bubbles. Then pour into the well and mix lightly with a little flour. Allow to sit for 30 min.
Cream the following ingredients well:
100g butter, melted
100g sugar
2 large or 3 small eggs
some grated lemon and/or orange peel
1 tsp ground cardamom
Mix the yeast into the flour well, then add the creamed ingredients and knead into a smooth dough. Allow prove until slightly risen (15-45 min), then work in
100g raisins or sultanas
100g ground almonds
Shape into a ball, put on a greased baking sheet and allow to rise well.
Bake at 180° C for about 45 min.

We also made a Ligurian Torta Pasquale, the recipe for which I might share next year :-)
