Noodle & Rice boxes

This inspiration came from Jamie Oliver. Our “customers” could choose from salmon, tuna or chicken. For the vegetarians we made a couscous version with falafel and hummus. Very nice as well! Let you imagination go wild with the ingredients. It’s lots of fun to make and to serve. We definitely will make this for BUX…

Salmon en croute / potato gratin / french bean salad

Salmon en croute, Asya Kapitonova ‘s absolute favorite, so I always love to make it for my BUX colleagues. Together with a potato gratin and a french bean salad, yum. Try this at home and let me know what you think. Good old Jamie O nailed it again! -enjoy- Potato gratin Ingredients (serves 8) 1…

Roast carrot & fennel soup

The combination of carrot and fennel is delicious. Although it was hard to roast all the vegetables well for the amount of people I was cooking for that day (40)! Nevertheless, it’s the amount of love you put in it, so this soup tasted quite to my liking. -enjoy- Ingredients (serves 4) 1 kg carrots…

Mushroom & lentil pappardelle bolognese

This is truly delicious. My vegetarian friends in the office were very very happy with me, but also the meat lovers couldn’t believe how nice this meatless meal really was. A green salad on the side made this dish look even more appetizing. Ingredients (serves 4) 1 carrot 1 onion 2 cloves of garlic 1…

Creamy asparagus soup

This recipe is meant to be with green asparagus. But because it’s the season for the white ones, I picked those. Don’t forget if you do so too, to peal the skin of the white asparagus. The outside is tough and difficult to eat. Just an idea, maybe I will try a mix of both…

Tray-baked panzanella salad

From the lovely Francesca in the office I have learned that there are different kinds of panzanella in Italy. Her grandmother made it out of stale bread. You make the bread a little wet, rub some oval shaped tomatoes over it plus some oil, pepper & salt. She also made it very clear that you…

Pea, mint and feta smash

So easy to prepare and the result is stunning. A favorite under the BUX colleagues as some people asked for the recipe straight after lunch. Tip: When you get the peas out of the freezer put them in a sieve and rinse with hot water until the peas are thawed. Squeeze them first in your…

The combination of Quinoa and schnitzel is quit nice actually. Just don’t forget to squeeze the lemon wedge over the veal, to give it that zing. Do serve this dish with the pea smash and close your eyes and taste the summer. -enjoy- INGREDIENTS (serves 4) 2 eggs 2 cloves garlic, crushed 1 teaspoon sea…

Quinoa and haloumi spring salad

A great combination with the Lamb and feta meatball flatbreads. My colleagues at BUX munched their way through this healthy lunch, some of them even came back for thirds… We did skip the haloumi in this recipe. The reason why was because we just did not order it. So improvising is a great thing, skipping…
