Ragnhild is one of the loveliest people I know of. She has that raw, Norwegian passion, for life, love, for food and she always puts a smile on my face when I read her blog - which has become more and more of an inspiration for myself.
She combines more traditional vegan recipes with some pretty nifty new conbinations that you would never have dreamed of. I just hope that maybe she can also release a recipe book in English - maybe if you ask her pretty please, with a cherry on top?
I remember when she told us that she had bought herself a brand new camera, and that she had an exciting time ahead - I was so so curious, and then she announced it: She was going to publish a leaflet with delicious dishes, and I could not have been more excited! Finally I could get my paws on the recipes, and I didn't have to jot them down on little pieces of paper torn out from my abundance of notepads. I could simply just fetch it - do my food shop-planning, and off I went... on my own little mission.
I had already made a few of her recipes, such as her infamous and super-easy recipe for the BEST dark chocolate, four ingredients - and you're good to go! I made a Black forest version of it once, and have made many variations of it since, just check out my "sweets" section!
Raw pizza-bites, anyone?
Cleverly, she has divided it into three categories:
Breakfast - Lunch & Dinner - All things sweet!
This fresh, vegan strawberry milk was a treat! I can imagine that, along with some of her tropical doughnuts would be an amazing start to the day, come rain or shine - it's bound to put a smile on your face.... *daydreams*
Out of the dinner dishes, I have made the pizza bites that you saw above, as well as her "cauliflower wings" - who needs them chicken wings anyway? The sauce was absolutely delicious as well!
This is made with a sticky cauliflower rice in place of the traditional sushi rise, and you know what? It works a treat! Then there was the lovely salad feat. passionfruit tangerines and avocado!
Then, as you might have seen, I also made her vegan sushi!
Moving on to the sweet section - ah, just thinking about those delicious things! Most of them feature chocolate, and I cannot say I blame her! I also made her coconut ice cream, with my own little twist!
I can not wait to try all the other dishes that I haven't yet had the time to make, and if you speak or understand Norwegian, I would definitely recommend it!
Actually.... even if you want to learn a new language and make food at the same time, I am sure this would be a pretty good way of doing it too!
The photography is lovely, and Ragnhild got her brother to design the recipe collection and put it together - what a team!
Fancy a copy? Head over to her blog here, and in a few clicks - you'll have something magic on the way to you in the mail *smiles*
