Sweet and spicy red soup

Cookie

I’m so happy when I can find some fresh spinach and I really wanted to have a go for spinach and ricotta lasagne.
As you may have understood, I’m trying to get a little more organised to have dinner served a little more quickly as I have also to run to get also our next day bentos ready.
So I have prepared some little soup. This one is sweet and spicy at the same time, the sweetness comes from the apple and the spicy from chilli pepper. I’ll prepare it quite thick and store it in the fridge (remember I have no freezer to rely on) and I’ll add a little water before reheating.
The lasagne is also a good meal which could last us two evenings. But I have to admit that we liked it too much to have any leftovers for the next evening…

Colourful bento

Bento content
Seitan crakers
-Quinoa topped with kohlrabi leaves and nuts sprinkles
-Broccoli and Brussels sprouts flavoured with ginger, chilli pepper and stock
Apple and pear nutty crumble
Aubergine’s caviar, carrot and radish pickles
-BF’s eternal cheese sandwich
Quick soup

After swimming I had to pack really quickly up a bento for the next day. I had some seitan left, I decided to prepare them as little miso flavoured fritters. This was really a good idea. Even cold they are really tasty and not too greasy as I cannot truly fry them (none of my pans are deep enough). The apple and pear crumble was the result of this 6 o’clock cooking frenzy. And it’s a good way to make BF eat fruits. (I still didn’t find enough tricks to make him eat fruits except juices, smoothies and cakes…any idea?) What’s more? Ah..aubergine caviar. This is a very good dip which deserves it’s name. One aubergine gives really little caviar…but so tasty! And last but not least, I added a little round tup in which I poured boiling water to make it in a soup. This one is a mix of miso, kohlrabi and nut sprinkle and dried tomato strips. Well, that was really tasty! I’ll make some soup every lunch now! Having a hot dish on this cold days was really a joy.
