Salad Festival

We love salads so much that we cannot get enough of them. That’s why we invented the Salad Festival. Three salads in one lunch. Delicious! 1.Butternut Squash With Pecans and Blue Cheese Ingredients (Serves 6-8) 2 kilograms butternut squash 3 tablespoons olive oil 6 stalks fresh thyme (or 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme) 100 grams pecan…

Spinach and ricotta cannelloni

I did manage to make  this recipe for 35 people, but opted for the lasagne version instead of cannelloni. Rolling Cannelloni is far to time consuming for so many people, I thought. But by all means, try it at home when you are with 4-6 persons. I will definitely make this at home for my…

Spanish week!

Yes! BUX was launched in Spain today, and of course we also did celebrate that a little bit in the BUX kitchen. A good way of celebrating is a good meal to share. So a huge pan of Paella was prepared this morning, and completely gone by the strike of 1 o’clock. Some of our…

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…

Baked feta & tomatoes

Lovely summery dish. The baked feta cheese combined with the kalamata olives was a great hit. Do try this easy to make dish at home, as a side dish great too. Ingredients (serves 4) 250 g feta cheese 500 g mixed tomatoes 1 handful of kalamata olives (stone in) 200 g sourdough ½ bunch of…

Squash & sausage risotto

For people who cannot do without meat, it is a great idea to add sausages to your risotto anytime. You can make it as spicy as you would like. Today we added chipolata sausages, the favorite of many youngsters. Served with a slice of focaccia with tomatoes and olives. Yum! Ingredients (serves 4) 4 higher-welfare…

Red Prawn and Pineapple Curry

Hearing or seeing the word pineapple always makes me think of party and sunshine, don’t ask me why! This dish was meant to be made with the mango fruit, but for some reason our delivery of mango’s went wrong. Lucky enough we had plenty supply of pineapple. The curry was deliciously spicy and sweet. My…

Not So Red Velvet Cupcakes

Thursday Dessert Day! Haha, Nigella says it herself in the Method, the color of the cupcakes turn out not to be so red after all! But they are velvet, for sure. We had some little meringue toppings left so that’s what we opted for, instead of chocolate sprinkles or red sugar. They taste delicious. I…

Praised Chicken

Great Nigella Lawson recipe! Love it. After a rather large and heavy lunch yesterday we needed something light and comforting together. For the big eaters we served the soup with rice, for the conscious one with a cheeky little piece of bread & butter. It probably won’t surprise you when I tell you that some…

Baked potato with rapid ragu & green bean salad

This rapid ragu is a Nigella Lawson recipe, the baked potato was my own idea to add. Together with the cold bean salad and almond shavings, this dish became more of an early dinner. 😉  -Enjoy- PS: I did make a vegetarian version as well. Just leave the pancetta and lamb out. The caramelized onions…

Raw snickers bar

Many people think snickers bars can be unhealthy. But when you eat these gorgeous homemade treats full of energy, that thought will drift away quickly. We did not only add dates to this recipe but many more dried fruits, like apricots, raisins and cranberries. For the puffed brown rice we used rice krispies. RAW is…

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…
