Vietnamesiska sommarrullar.

Serverade vietnameska vårrullar som förrätt under det här kalaset. Man tog att det som fanns i kylen och gjorde en dipsås som kanske var litet mer japansk än vietnamesisk, men gott, fräscht, glutenfritt, nomnom blev det!

VIETNAMESE SPRING ROLLS 

rice paper
fresh herbs (we had mint, parsley and basil)
lettuce
rice noodles
shrimps
cucumber
(carrots) 

Sauce: sesame oil, rice vinegar, soy sauce

  1. Fill a wide bowl with water (at room temperature). Soak the rice papers in the water for a minute, one by one.
  2. Place the softened ricepaper on a board and fill with a few shrimps, some ricenoodles, greens and veggies. Wrap them tightly.
  3. Cut the rolls in half before serving and place on a serving plate. Serve with a sauce, eg. one consisting of 1 tbsp soy, 1 tbsp rice vinegar and a teaspoon or so of the sesame oil. 
  4. Dip the rolls in the sauce and indulge!

Artichokes and clarified butter.

Nu har jag inte tjatat om hur goda kronärtskockor och smör är på en stund. Vissa avskyr konceptet för det tar ju en evighet att äta och man får knappt något i sig. Men så finns det en hel hop störande typer som jag som tycker att just det är det bästa. Att doppa bladen i klarnat smör låter kanske inte så raffigt, men hela processen att bara fokusera på att kombinera två ingredienser, blad för blad, är helt unik. Speciellt märker man det om man dricker något emellanåt - vinet och vattnet blir plötsligt sött, vilket man glömmer bort varje gång och blir helt fnissig sen när man märker det. Bästa sortens minimalism.

Artichokes and clarified butter. Some find this combination overrated and overly simple, but for me it is minimalism at its best.

Gazpacho.

With a heat wave all over Europe, an icy gazpacho is not a choice on the daily menu - it is a must.

This recipe should fill up a nice jug. And please remember that many of the ingredients can easily be substituted with other vegetables available. The only non-substitutable ingredinets here are tomatoes, garlic, celery and bread.

GAZPACHO

Preparation: 10 minutes + 1 hour in the fridge

6-8 tomatoes
1-2 cloves of garlic, according to taste
2 slices of bread
2 stalks of celery
1/2 - 1 cucumber
1 red bell pepper
1 spring onion
2 tblsp lemonjuice
2 tblsp balsamic vinegar
greens: parsley, chives…
olive oil
salt & pepper

Cut the vegetables into chunks small enough so that what ever mixer you are using can handle them. Gradually add the ingredients into the mixer. Save some of the fresh herbs for garnishing. Add salt and pepper.

Let stand in the fridge for at least one hour. Serve with the herbs and fresh bread.
