Warm Bulgur Salad with Roasted Pumpkin, Smoked Mackerel and Feta Cheese

Bulgur salade met geroosterde pompoen, gerookte makreel en fetakaas

Bulgur Wheat is made from different types of whole wheat grain, mostly durum. It’s first precooked, dried and then cracked. The wheat is naturally high in fibre and has a somewhat nutty flavor. It’s perfect in warm dishes, but also in warm or cold salads.

When I started on this dish, I actually had couscous on my mind. As I went to get the couscous from the pantry, I saw that I still had a box of bulgur. And I thought: hey, that would be great in this dish as well. And boy, did that work out well. The combination of the more substantial texture of the wheat, the softness of the roasted pumpkin, together with the oily smoked mackerel and the salty feta cheese… this was heaven on a plate. read more

Cheesy Chicken Sausage Spaghetti Squash Bowls

Spaghetti-Pompoen Boten

Spaghetti squash is still fairly unknown around here. But since one of the largest grocery stores in the Netherlands has started selling it and explained in monthly magazine what it is, the word is getting out and recipes are popping up everywhere. I’m really glad about it, as I don’t have to drive through half the country anymore to get a spaghetti squash.

It’s a fun and versatile vegetable and perfect if you want to cut down on your carb intake. It is a delicious sub for spaghetti (obviously), but you can use it in other dishes as well, where you would normally use pasta, rice or potatoes. I posted this Spaghetti Squash Casserole last year, which is actually based on a pie recipe (like a Shepherd’s pie). read more

Oven-baked Pumpkin Doughnuts

Pumpkin Doughnuts

Pumpkin Doughnuts

Yeah, it’s Fall! And you know what that means? Well? No, I don’t mean it’s getting cold, wet, windy, dark… No no no, I mean it’s PUMPKIN SEASON! Actually, it’s pumpkin season all year round for me, especially when my freezer is stacked with my homemade pumpkin puree. But we can officially jump on the pumpkin wagon now (like with these pumpkin doughnuts), without getting weird looks, like if it’s a crime to have something pumpkin during summer. read more

Pumpkin Banana Blondies

Pumpkin Banana Blondies

How do you like to eat banana’s? I don’t like to eat ripe banana’s. I don’t like the texture and the sweet taste. They don’t even have to be ‘overripe’, if they start to get yellow, they are already too far gone for me. I like banana’s if they are still a bit greenish, firm and not sweet at all. I actually keep banana’s in the fridge. The skin does get brown spots, but inside they keep fresh for a longer period of time. read more

Homemade Pumpkin Puree

Homemade Pumpkin Puree

While I could eat anything pumpkin all year round, fall and winter especially call for pumpkin recipes. Over the last years, pumpkin has become more popular around these parts, but it’s still a fairly unknown ingredient. Many people simply don’t know what to do with it. And it’s so versatile! Soups, stews, roasted, grilled, sweet, savory, drinks… The list is endless.

But… cutting and peeling a pumpkin is a tedious job. And potentially dangerous! Seriously dangerous. My knife (huge, sharp chef’s knife) often always gets stuck halfway through and as I can’t seem to move the knife in any direction, I end up ‘banging’ the pumpkin on the counter, like I was cleaving a piece of wood with an axe. I’m sure I’m not the only one. Right? Anyway, dangerous. In my mind, I already see a pumpkin flying through the kitchen. A disaster waiting to happen. read more
