Things to Try Thursday, 3rd of November


1) I already mentioned my endless love for anything involving Chai flavours: Chai Spiced Buttermilk Pancakes

2) I’m not actually sure about the idea of cornmeal in a cake, but it looks and sounds delicious nevertheless:  Cornmeal Cake with Fresh Corn and Berries 

3) NOM: Plum Kuchen


1) This one doesn’t only bring pasta and pure elegance together, it’s also perfect for this season: Delicata Squash Pasta Shells with Brown Butter Bechamel

2) Always up for a cheeky soup here and there: Creamy Mushroom and Roasted Cauliflower Soup

3) Did you know that you can eat raw brussel sprouts? I definitely didn’t. To be honest, I don’t really eat them too often anyway, but who else but Joy from JoytheBaker could make me want to try it. Here’s a recipe for a delicious sounding salad: Apple, Pomegranate and Brussels Sprout Salad

4) Another salad, this time with Avocados and Wasabi and other deliciousness: Avocado Wasabi Salad

5) This one’s from the same blog as the previous one, which is a vegan blog! Although I’m not a vegan myself, I often find vegan recipes very inspiring. This one uses all sorts of things that I like: Bread + Aubergines + it’s a lasagne: Rustic Bread and Aubergine Lasagne

6) Another Lasagne-y thing, but this time it’s pretty too: Aubergine and Pine Nut Rolled Lasagne

P.S. Isn’t this the most beautiful vegan wedding menu (and I do realise you’ve probably not looked at any before, so it definitely will be) you’ve ever seen?

RECIPE: Caramelized Butternut Squash Lasagne

Yesterday we made this delicious caramelized butternut squash lasagne (for the second time). It’s another recipe of Kevin from closet cooking (here’s a link to the actual recipe, check it out, he’s got photos too!) and as with everything I’ve tried from his blog so far, it turned out delicious!

I’m just going to roughly describe what it is, since you can find the recipe on the closetcooking blog. This lasagne is really comforting and creamy, it’s also full of flavour, and I think it’s definitely delightful enough to be served in a good restaurant. The sauce itself is fairly basic and made out of quite a lot of butter, flour and milk with the main flavours being sage and nutmeg. The sauce itself is already really nice, but let us get to the star of this dish: the Caramelized Roasted Butternut Squash!

The butternut squash is cut into little cubes and mixed with olive oil, balsamic vinegar, salt and pepper ( we also added some icing sugar). It then goes in the oven for half an hour, where it roasts and caramelizes until it’s perfect to join the sauce and the mozzarella for a little party in between fresh lasagne sheets. The whole thing is then topped with some freshly grated parmesan cheese and goes into the oven until it’s nice and golden, or in our case, until you can actually not wait any longer :)

TRY IT! Please? It’s so so nice!
