What a perfect day to start with home-made bagels… As you can see from the photo, I made sesame-garlic bagels, tomato bagels, sun flower and pumpkin seeds bagels and the good thing is that you can make them as you imagination wants.
Later I made some hummus and with some tomatoes the bagels were great! (if you are crazy as me about Marmite, then you should also try one!)
All of them were really good but always one is the best and this time it was the sesame seed with garlic. However the tomato one was nicely creamy.
- 2 cups of whole grain flour
- 1 tbsp of salt
- 1/2 tbsp of baking soda
- 1 tbsp of baking powder
- 1 cup of water
Pre-heat the oven at 180C. Mix all the ingredients in a bowl and whisk well. Then roll the dough and cut it in 8 pieces. Roll each of them a bit more and make circles. Later bake for 20 min.
To make the different kinds I used:
- Tomato bagel: put in the dough 2 tbsp of tomato paste.
- Sesame-garlic bagel: pour a mix of sesame seeds and dried garlic to the outside of the dough.
- Sun flower or pumpkin seeds bagels: add some of the seeds to the outside of the bagel.
After two weeks in Cargese, Corsica I am back to the Nederlands. This is a typical snack in València made of flour, water, a pinch of salt and some seeds
A lovely Sunday lunch …
First we start with a nice baked bread with some oregano on top and eat it with roasted aubergine and red pepper.
And later, a lovely whole grain pasta with courgette and champiognon tomato sauce.
That might be the last post that I do from the lovely city of Lisbon. I had a great time here although the weather was too hot to my taste. However, this weather helps to have great veggies all year round. Yesterday was a hot day and we just felt to eat some nice veggies with a dipping sauce. You can use this recipe as party snack, as a starter in a meal or as you wish, but try it, it is worth it.
- chickpeas (in a can or cook them in advance)
- 1 green chili
- cumin powder
- coriander powder
- olive oil, salt and pepper to taste
- 3 carrots
- 1 green and red pepper
- 2 tomatoes
- some broccoli
- Hummus: with a blender, mix all the ingredients in a bowl. Add some water if the paste is to thick and the condiments as you like.
With the veggies sliced, place them on the plate and …. start to dip in!
You can see from top to bottom: Aloo gobi, potato bhaji and Missi roti (gram flour roti). As a drink we had some mango lassi. A gorgeous dinner with a lot of turmeric.
