Blue cheese & apple burger with bombay potato salad

Make it your own, I would say. Put the apple slices on top of the burger or leave it aside with a little lemon squeezed over them and a small grind of pepper. We didn’t meld the blue cheese on top of the burger as we have many to handle 😉 and not all like…

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…

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…

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…

Kimchi fried rice

It was a true challenge to cook this lovely dish for my Buxers yesterday. First, I did get on my bike from Central Station early in the morning, to get to this great place called Dun Yong. It’s a Walhalla of Asian Food at the Stormsteeg 9 in Amsterdam. With my Kimchi, take-away boxes and…

Couscous Salad

With the spring coming up, we were in desperate need of a nice salad. Pearl Couscous was used for this dish, this kind of couscous is a lot bigger in size then your regular couscous. The cherry tomatoes were roasted in the oven for 20 min on high heat, and instead of Lebanese cucumbers we…

Salade Nicoise

A classic salad and very underrated if you ask me. My choice would be fresh french beans instead of frozen fine one’s. The oil of the sunblushed tomatoes together with the rest of the dressing are the star of this dish. -enjoy- Ingredients (Serves: 2 for supper or lunch) 2 large eggs 100 grams frozen…

Bridget Jones’ grilled salmon with pine nut salsa

Another great Ottolenghi recipe. The story behind this dish is funny. In the film Bridget Jones’ baby, the gorgeous Patrick Dempsey makes dinner for Bridget and calls it Ottolenghi salmon. Apparently, the great chefs at Ottolenghi themselves never heard of it! But, as good sports as they are, they took the recipe up in one…
