Honestly, when preparing this I forgot to add the vegetarian 'minced meat' and it was still delicious. Would also be great with mushrooms! Find your own, buy fresh or soak dried mushrooms from your stock. First, mix together ingredients for the sauce. I used tomato sauce, tomato paste, water, sambal (chili paste) and bruschetta mix [...]

We found a beautiful bunch of parasol mushrooms (in Dutch: grote parasolzwammen) in a neighbor's garden. She was super friendly and gave us one, after we explained how delicious they supposedly were - although we hadn't tried before.

Indonesian style green beans and broccoli

2019-07-29T22:54:16+02:00By |Blog, Food, Health, Recipes|

The Dutch kitchen has been blessed with many foreign influences, making our palette a lot more interesting than it would have been if we'd stayed with 'our own' boring variations on mashed potatoes, kale and meat. Green beans can be a bit boring as well, but if you spice them up Indonesian style like in [...]
