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…

Sausage and spinach spaghetti

Another very “green” day in the BUX office. But I did promise meat and for sure the Buxers did get it. With green & red peppers instead of the sausage the vegetarian option was created, so that I kept all of these food lovers happy. -enjoy- INGREDIENTS (serves 4) 300g spaghetti (or other pasta) 1…

Spinach and lemon baguette

Today was another vegetarian day for the Buxers…although some of them sneaked a little anchovies into the salad ;-). I did promise some meat for tomorrow. But, no complaints: next to the pea, courgette & parmesan soup, this lunch was in perfect balance. -enjoy- INGREDIENTS (serves 6) 1 large crusty baguette 200g baby spinach 200ml…

Italian-style tomato, chicken and bread soup

I love this soup! It’s my new favorite! Okay, it takes a little time to make, but the result is stunning. Nothing is better then homemade chicken stock. It beats the instant stock cubes by far. Take your time with this recipe. I promise you, it’s a real treat. We might have slightly overdone it…

Healthy lentil, tomato & spinach soup

This soup makes you feel strong and super healthy: Red lentils, vine tomatoes and spinach, what a great combination. Our own Poppey from the office was very impressed and came back for seconds 😉 Ingredients (Serves 4) 1 tsp olive oil 1 white onion 2 cloves of garlic 2 sticks of celery 1 small bunch…

Turkey & courgette burgers with spring onion & cumin

These cute little burgers are perfect for lunch. They are nice in combination with the Globe artichoke salad. It’s an typical Ottolenghi recipe with lots of flavors going on. Try it. I will definitely use minced turkey again as burgers. Love it. Hope you enjoy this too. Ingredients (Serves 4-6, makes about 18 burgers) 500g…

Coleslaw kimchi

A lovely crunchy salad. The sesame oil makes this dish. For our lunch I did add some sesame seeds on top of the salad as well. -enjoy- Tip: try this salad with the Fish Cakes! Ingredients (serves 4) 600g white cabbage 200g leek 100g carrot 2 tablespoons gochugaru , (Korean chilli powder) 1 teaspoon grated…

Couscous with dried apricots and butternut squash

Tip: make this recipe one day before use. By then all the ingredients will have mixed so well, it’s like they have had a good party in the fridge! Ingredients (serves 4) 1 large onion, thinly sliced 6 tbsp olive oil 50g dried apricots 1 small butternut squash (about 450g), peeled, seeded and cut into…

Grilled mushroom risotto

Sometimes it is very daunting to cook an Italian dish for my Italian colleagues. But when it works the joy is double! This risotto dish takes some time and care to make it, but you will agree with me that the result is worth it. I didn’t grill the mushrooms in a griddle pan but…
