Today I'm feeling..H to the Ungover.. jeeezzz. and there's only one person to blame for this and that will be ME (urgh) What happened was, my friend S. came over to drink some tea and relax at my place last night..Somehow the tea turned into wine..crazy enough the wine turned into shots and those shots magicly turned into f#cking gin!! I know right..that's like the weirdest thing EVER! lol
So after a parade of embarrassing myself all night I woke up this morning feeling like I was hit by a truck! :|. Like most Asians my body can't handle alcohol or in other words alcohol is like poisoning myself. I didn't feel like doing groceries so I looked into my fridge to see if I could fix myself something and I sure did!! This spinach-egg-roll turned out GREAT! Scroll down for this easy peasy recipe. I made this in just 15 minutes!
Ingredients you'll need:
- a handful of spinach
- 2 eggs
- 4 cherry tomatoes
- a big of goatcheese
- some salt, pepper and garlic powder
*you'll need your food processor for this recipe.
What the F#ck is next?
Mix the spinach, eggs and seasoning using a food processor. Use a bit of coconutoil and pour the mixture into the pan. Put the fire on low heat and leave it for something like 3 minutes or so, just check if the pancake isn't wet any more so you can flip it. Put the heat on max. for 30 more seconds and it's a (W)RAP! Finish it with tomatoes and goatcheese and you are DONE! Mmmmm Enjoy! It's really good!
This was SO easy to make, SO damn tasty.. AND good for the body! Mmmmm..Gotta love it! Have a great day!
This week I was at this bar-restaurant called Toussaint and we ordered a plate of snacks to go with our drinks. On the menu they had a greenpea pesto, which I was drawn to as I never had that before. So, excited as I was when our plate arrived, I was kinda disappointed after my first dip.. Why? Well I didn't taste any pea flavour, and it was way to milky and creamy for me. So that inspired me to make a tastier and healthier version for myself and for you guys of course ;)! My sweet friend Y. came over for dinner tonight and as she doesn't eat any meat I thought this would be the perfect starter to begin with!
Ingredients you'll need:
- 4 hands of green peas (buy the organic frozen box)
- some water
- some salt & pepper to taste
- 1 teaspoon of Masala
- 1/2 teaspoon of garlic powder
- 1 teaspoon of Kurkuma powder
- some coriander
* if you like, you maybe can even add a spoon of avocado-oil to make it more creamy I guess. Let me know if you tried it out!
What the f#ck is next?
- Get a normal pan and fill it half with water, when the water is boiling add the green peas, when the peas are floating they are ready and now you can drain the water.
Add all the seasoning and coriander (I used the juicy part of the coriander, as you would normally throw this part away, for this dip it's perfect to use!). Blend everything until it's a smooth thick paste, I added 2 or 3 spoons of water because I found it a bit to thick. Check if you need some more salt.
Let it cool, and if you like sprinkle some sesameseeds over the dip and add a leave of coriander, this way your dish looks much more sexier ;)
I served some sweet juicy carrots to go with this dip, but I think the list is endless. You can use this dip on toast, or as a sandwich-spread or to dip veggies like paprika and cucumber strings in.. you name it.. I dip it!!
Don't you just love it that the green colour is SO vibrant..oh just Beautiful! I will post the main course recipe tomorrow as I'm off to bed now..
As you guys know I'm all about making myself a super healthy vegetable juice every single morning. I try to be as creative as possible so I won't be bored with it and today I decided to add some Passion fruit to my vegetable juice. Let me tell you.. this combo is FAN-F#cking-TASTIC!
I normally eat passion fruit just throughout the day, as a snack, I just LOVE the sweet and sour taste it has, just cut the fruit in half and scoop out the flesh by using a teaspoon! I seriously imagine myself somehwere in the tropics when I'm eating this with my eyes closed!..(yes with my eyes CLOSED I said..lol) MMMmm so damn tasty!!
The Juice I had this morning:
- 1/2 cucumber
- 3 carrots
- a chunk of ginger
- 1 lemon
- 1 orange
- 1 passion fruit (don't put the passion fruit in the juicer, just add it at last)
- 1 spoon of Maca powder
After drinking this I'm good to go! Well HELLOOOO WORLDDDDD :D
I'm crazy about artichokes and I really wonder how come I almost NEVER see artichokes on the menus when I'm out and about. I love the stunning looks, taste AND they're like so easy to prepare! So.. It's time to give this beautiful veggie some attention eh?!
There's actually only one way I prepare mine, and that's by grilling them in the oven. I also served this many times as a starter-side dish whenever I have friends over for dinner, honestly.. it looks SO interesting on the table.. All my friends are always like.. holey #%$(^%$# what is that?!?! and then I'm like.. duhh it's an artichoke you stupid lol
uhm..anyway.. where was I .. oh yeah so how to prepare the artichoke like I do?! Just scroll down so we can turn the tables around and you'll be the one impressing your friends ;)
Ingredients for 3-4 persons as a snack-starter:
- 2 big beautiful artichokes
- 8 garlic cloves (I use the oven grilled garlic later to make the yoghurt dip)
- some salt & pepper
- 1 lemon juice
Delicious side dip:
- 6 mashed grilled garlic cloves
- 4 5 spoons of greek yoghurt
- some salt and pepper
- some cumin powder
- 1 spoon of lemon juice
What to do?
Preheat your oven on 200 Celsius.
Cut of the 1/3 top of the artichoke, now you'll see the beautiful coloured purple leaves (amazing right?!) and cut off the stem too. Put the cloves of garlic in each artichoke in between the leaves, drizzle some olive oil, a pinch of salt and pepper and half the juice of the lemon on each artichoke.
Wrap them in silver foil (make sure it's airtight) and put them in the oven for 90 minutes. (90 f#cking minutes?! ..YES sorry.. 90 minutes..)
Meanwhile you can prepare your main dish or go do something useful like polishing your nails lol, entertain your guests..or pour yourself 1,2 or 3 glasses of wine ;D
When the artichokes are ready get the garlic cloves out of the artichoke (please watch out you don't burn yourself) and mash them using a fork with the yoghurt and the rest of the seasoning.
Now dip every leave in the dip, and you'll eat the fleshy part of the artichoke.. MMMMMMMmmm don't you just love that?!
MMMMmmmm.. so sorry I totally forgot to make pictures of my yoghurt dip! Hope you like my recipe!
It's so hot outside I felt that I needed to treat myself with something Ice cold & Delish.. So I decided to make my own chocolate fudge lolly pops this morning! It wouldn't be The Cookteaser recipe if this isn't done in less then 10 minutes of your precious time!
Only things you need is: Bananas, Cacao powder and a food processor. Scroll down to see how I made these..
Ingredients for 4 chocolate Ice Lollies:
- 2 big bananas (or 3 small bananas)
- 6 spoons of cacao powder
- for those who love coconut flavour you can add 2 spoons of coconutmilk/cream to it, this will make your pops a bit more exotic tasting)
What to do?
Mix all the ingredients using your food processor until it's all smooth and creamy looking. Poor it in the pops and put them in the freezer for at least 3 hours.
yes...that's f#cking it!
ENJOY bitches! ;)
HAHA Oke...as I was typing the title I already thought.. hmm... 'Morning Juice' sounds kinda gross, but hey.. you get what I'm saying right ;) !? I think I've been drinking my juices every morning now for something like 2 or 3 weeks in a row and I'm really noticing that somehow my body isn't craving for sweets.. YES, I know..like a f#cking miracle has happened! I'm feeling really energetic and because time can be such a bitch sometimes I just make myself an extra large juice instead of dinner. Don´t get me wrong.. I enjoy cooking much more but I see this as a great alternative when time isn´t working out.
Ingredients for this juice:
- 1 granny smith (that's an apple..NOT your granny silly!)
- 1 orange
- 1 lemon
- a chunk of ginger
- 3 carrots
- 2 big hands of wild spinach
- 1 passion fruit (don't put the fruit in your juicer, just scoop the flesh out with a teaspoon)
- 1 spoon of Maca powder
I'm crazy about red beet combined with smoked mackerel! I came to this recipe when I was feeling hungry one day and I didn't feel like going out to do some grocery shopping. I opened my fridge and there we're all left-over veggies and mackerel. So I decided to combine them and it turned out GREAT!
- Smoked Mackerel
- 2 spoons of cottage cheese
- 1 teaspoon of horseradish
- 1 red beet (I bought them pre-cooked)
- some coriander
slice the red beet in very thin slices, I used my spirooli for this (use the 'razor-blade'), spread it nicely over your plate. Mix the cottagecheese with the horsesadish and some pepper and salt to taste.
Add the mackerel and coriander on top and you are done!
Ain't this easy peasy?!
My friend S. came over last week (to eat haha).. and I just couldn't decide what to make us for dinner. We were both not feeling super hungry but we did feel like eating something delish (duh)...So for a change I asked her to grab some totally different ingredients of which she thought it would be nice to eat.. As you can see on the pictures the main ingredient was: a can of CHICKPEAS!! I never ever made something different then hummus with chickpeas so this was quit the challenge! As S. was doing some work behind her laptop I started to be creative in the kitchen.. like what the F#ck can I make with chickpeas? Well honey.. it all turned great..that's for sure. Scroll down for my new recipe.
- half a cucumber
- 2 can of chickpeas
- butterlettuce (but you can use any lettuce, even raw wild spinach, as long as the leaves are big enough so you can wrap it)
- a handful of coriander
- 6 sundried tomatoes (use the ones in oil)
- 1 spoon of paprika powder
- 1 teaspoon of cumin powder
- 1 teaspoon of curry powder
- a small shot of soya sauce (you can use regular salt too)
- half a pepper
- 1 shallot
- 1/2 lemon juice
- 1 spoon of vegetable oil
Dressing on top: (just mix these 2 ingredients below and that's it!)
- some cottage cheese
- 1 spoon of chilli chow oil (only available in Asian Supermarkets, this is my favourite chilli sauce)
Oke it might looks complicated but you can make this dish in just 15 to 20 minutes! Mix the tomatoes in your kitchenmachine until smooth.
I used my wok and started to bake the, onion, limeleaves and peppers first with the oil, after 1 minute you add the chickpeas (don't forget to loose all the access water first), after 2 minutes add the sundried tomato paste. Stir it all well and then at last add the limejuice and the soyasauce.
Leave this 4 more minutes on maximum heat and keep stirring it all well. So it won't burn.
Meanwhile mix the cottage cheese with the chill chow oil and this will be your dressing.

You guys know I'm not a big meat eater BUT.. from time to time I LOVE eating Balls! I mean seriously.. who doesn't??! (lol)
Last week Thursday I was meeting up with my friends K., J., E., and R., at K's place for dinner.. (yes, that explains the unfamiliar marble table). As they we're having lot's of fun chitchatting in the livingroom I was having lot's of fun in the kitchen making us a super delish dinner! My friends know I'd rather be alone in the kitchen then they helping me out..well.. just me accompanied with a nice glass of wine will fit all my needs !!
I made us a thai flavoured raw cucumber/zucchini noodle salad (click HERE for the recipe) and I made some spicy meatballs. This time a bit different then how I normally make them but I'm sure you're gonna love this recipe too! Scroll down..
Ingredients for 5 sexy bitches:
- 1 kilo of ground beef :| (like wtf..make it 5 HUNGRY sexy bitches lol)
- 1 big box of brown mushrooms
- 1 purple onion (chop it really fine)
- 4 limeleaves (shred them a bit)
- 2 spoons of Thai Red Curry paste
- some salt
- 2 shots of soya sauce
- 5 spoons of Ketjap Manis (use an indonesian brand... the very thick ketjap)
- a bunch of coriander
- 4 garlic toes (just flatten them using your knife, no need to chop the garlic for this recipe)
So what's next?
Mix the groundbeef with the chopped onion, the red curry paste and some salt. Turn them into beautiful even round balls. Nice thing about when I'm making meatballs is that I never use any extra oil to bake them in, just wait till the pan is really really hot and then grill the balls, you'll notice that there will form a nice layer of natural fat, when all the sides are goldenbrown, this is the time to add the mushrooms, limeleaves and garlic.
When the mushrooms have also turned goldenbrown turn the heat on medium and add the soyasauce and the ketjap. Wait 5 more minutes and depending on the size of your balls they should be ready by now. Don't overcook them. I always check one first before I turn of the fire. They are when their still a bit pink inside. The meat will cook longer even when it's off the fire. So when you serve the balls they will be just PERFECT!
