vegetables & goat’s cheese sandwich

Here we go again. Another sandwich post. Today we create a classic sandwich w/ baked vegetables! Today there is no additional frying or so required – we rely on fresh bread & add-ons at room temperature. In my fridge some leftovers of baked vegetables chilled – so now they will end up in the sandwich. I worked with baked fennel, but you may also rely on any other baked delicacy like pepper or courgette or…

We are still in Northern Spain … & there is a great offer of courgettes!

oven-baked vegetables – leftovers …

What to do w/ leftovers? For a dinner event during weekend I prepared lots of oven-baked vegetables. It was delicious accompanied by some chicken filled w/ lemons & rosemary, a generous mix of fresh basil leaves & pressed garlic under the skin for especially flavoring the chicken breasts. (Maybe you think that the vegetables accompanied the chicken …) We all enjoyed the dinner …, however, some of the oven-baked vegetables remained on their plate afterwards…

When we started our trip to Southern France, end of 2022, we made a stop-over in Montpellier. If you like details: we arrived in the afternoon of 30th of December, stayed in Montpellier for New Year’s Eve and restarted to Carcassone on 1st of January. I remember that it was rather cold and rainy … except of New Year’s Day when suddenly the sun appeared on a blue sky. We then enjoyed a lazy coffee…

pizza w/o tomatoes

Is a pizza w/o tomatoes really a pizza? I think it is a pizza, because I didn’t intend to create any new type of quiche or tarte flambée. Except of the lack of tomatoes the rest fits in a traditional pizza creation. The tomatoes – if like a tomato sauce or tomato pesto or fresh tomatoes?I simply substituted ricotta for tomatoes. So the basic creaminess of the pizza remained & the ricotta mingled w/ the…

pizza w/ courgette

Time for pizza – home-made pizza. Out of the moment I decided on pizza for lunch for the 2 of us relying on whatever I had in my pantry resp. fridge. I hadn’t any pizza pastry coming out of a pizza pastry mix or any prepared pizza out of a chiller cabinet – so I decided to make my own pizza pastry. (If so I always ask Meike Peter’s latest cookbook where I found a…

(Also our trusted & precious café cum bakery reopened … for fresh bread…
