Red cabbage salad with dried cranberries

kr_kapusta_klukvaA sourly sweet salad :)

Requirements for half of a cabbage:
1-2 handfuls of dried cranberries
Juice of 1 Big Lemon
2-3 Tablespoons of Olive oil

*You can also add 1 Teaspoon of Honey or Agava Syrup but it's optional.

- Slice the cabbage into small thin slices,

-Add the lemon juice, olive oil and (If you want) Honey or Agava Syrup,

then mix it all together and let it stay for about 30 minutes so all the juices could soak in better. (Which makes it tastier :))

Bon Apetite :)

Sweet Potato Soup

Made Fast and Easy!
A lot of positive feedback (Including from myself), even from those who don't really like Sweet Potatoes :)

We are making the soup in a 5 litres pot.


- 2 Litres of water

- Olive oil (For sauteing)

- 1 Big Sweet Potato (About 800g, peel it and cut it into large pieces)

- 8-9 Average potatoes (About the size of the Sweet Potato, peel and cut them into large pieces)

- 5-6 Jerusalem artichoke lubes (Half of the Sweet Potato, wash clean and cut them into large pieces.)

- 3 Average Carrots (peel and cut them into large pieces)

- 1 Big Onion (Slice and dice)

- 5 Garlic Cloves (Slice and dice)

- 1 Tablespoon of salt

- A couple branches of Basil, Oregano and Thymus

- 1 Teaspoon of Hawaij

- 1 Teaspoon of Sweet Paprika


- Heat up the pot

- Oil the pot and add the onion dices,
after about a minute add the large pieces of carrots
After a couple minutes, add the spices, fry it together for about 5 seconds then add the water.
Right after that add the Sweet potato, Potatoes and Jarusalem Artichokes (that were previously cut into large pieces.)

- Once it starts boiling, add salt and set the heat on average

- After 20-30 minutes, check the softness of the vegetables, if they are soft, add the garlic and herbs.

- Turn up the heat, once it's boiling, turn the heat off and let it brew for 5-10 minutes.

- After that, blend it all together and wait for 15 more minutes, and you're done :)

Enjoy :)
