Try this tomato soup if you are looking for a good and simple budget meal to get you through the week. It’s easy to vary, I like to stir through chickpeas, kale and chili and top with lemon zest and avocado (not so budget), but you can also add fresh pasta to this if you prefer. I’ve linked the recipe in my bio if you want to give it a try. 🍲

“Daddy I want French toast!” was the first thing our daughter said when she woke up this morning. The kids usually don’t tell us what they want to eat (more often what they don’t want 😬), so I rushed into the kitchen to oblige her wish (and maybe a little bit because I also wanted French toast). We only had rye bread, which isn’t optimal as it doesn’t soak up the batter as good as white bread, but I used it anyway. I whisked together 2 eggs, 1/2 cup of oat milk, a splash of orange juice, a little almond flour, salt and ground cinnamon in a bowl. Soaked the rye bread slices in it for a few minutes and then fried them in butter, with extra batter drizzled over while frying. I served them topped with Greek yogurt (for her), coconut yogurt (for me) and blueberry compote and a drizzle of maple syrup. Not disgusting at all 😂🤤

Little chia jars with berry jam and pure apple sauce prepped and ready for the kids tomorrow. ✨
The chia pudding is simply: 3 tbsp chia seeds, 1 cup / 250 ml plant milk and a pinch vanilla stirred together. The apple sauce is made with apples, water and cinnamon, cooked together for 10 minutes into a sauce. And I’ve shared the berry jam recipe in my insta story highlights. 💥

On our way back after 24h in Prague, launching the Czech edition of our first book. We poured a glass of alcohol over the book because that is apparently what you do there. Not kidding. I remember when I was a child and practiced writing autographs. And now I am actually doing it for real. So crazy and unreal! The funniest thing is that my signature still looks as bad as when I was eight 😂. So tired though, I feel like I need a monster breakfast tomorrow. With pixelated avocado and the works. Who’s with me? Also, there is a really beautiful photo of me on my insta story. Just saying.

Ahoj Prague! 👋🏻🇨🇿
We are here for 24 hours to launch the Czech edition of our first book. We only had time for a short walk today but hey what a beautiful city! We have a few press things tomorrow but also one open event and book signing. So if you are in Prague, come hang out with us at 17.00 at @mamashelter_prague. A big thank you to our publisher @kitchenettehome. It still feels unreal to see our books published in new languages. ❤️
Ps. Let us know if you have any tips that we shouldn’t miss. We might sneak out early to see some more of the city in the morning.

Let’s give this week a strong start with a proper workout and a green smoothie. Tap for sound! 📽🎶 We often make this banana and celery smoothie with pea protein powder after a workout. It’s even better with a little nut butter added to it. 🏃🏼‍♂️🔋💪🏻💥

This was dinner tonight. Roasted carrot, pumpkin and cauliflower soup, topped with halloumi and kale chips. If you haven’t made roasted veggie soup before, you should try it. By roasting the vegetables instead of cooking them you’ll get all those caramelized/charred bits that carry more and deeper flavours. It’s also easier because you don’t need to be in the kitchen stirring the pot. Simply roast all the veggies + onion and garlic on a tray on high heat in the oven (I added a tray with kale towards the end to make the chips). And when the veggies look slightly charred, add them to your blender (if your blender can handle hot liquids, otherwise use a stick blender) with vegetable stock, apple cider vinegar, salt, cumin, cinnamon, turmeric and a splash of oat milk. Mix and serve. Very good and very simple. Toppings are obligatory. But I of course shouldn’t have sprinkled those chips over the kids’ soups. That was the first thing they commented on: “Noooo, I don’t like when the chips are touching my soup”. They like kale chips. They thought the soup was “okay”. But no touching allowed 😆

Happy weekend! Make sure to hug your loved ones like @luisegreenkitchenstories is hugging her sunny cashew milk 😆
Seriously though, it’s good stuff and you should give this a try.
1 cup cashew nuts
3-4 cups water
4 soft dates
2-3 tsp ground turmeric
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp fresh grated ginger
a good pinch salt and black pepper
Mix in a high-speed blender until smooth and pour into bottles (and mini bottles for the kids).

Every Thursday is pancake day in Sweden. It’s an old army tradition with pea soup and pancakes on Thursdays and I think it’s one of the few food traditions worth taking seriously. If you grate beetroot into the batter they’ll end up looking like this. Pretty neat! Serve with sweet or savory toppings. Blueberry compote is ace paired with earthy beetroot. Full pancake recipe in our book Green Kitchen At Home, but the beetroot trick works with any pancake/crêpe batter.

I found this little conversation with Isac on my phone, scribbled down a year ago. I randomly remember to take notes of all the weird stuff they say, but it’s hard to keep up 😂
Me: How was your day today?
Isac: Emma had to go to the dentist.
Me: Who is Emma?
Isac: He is in my daycare.
Me: Oh, is she in your group?
Isac: No
Me: Is she a teacher?
Isac: Nooooo
Me: Okay, maybe she is in another group?
Isac: [silent]
Isac: She hurt her tooth
Me: Oh no, did she fall?
Isac: On a chair
Me: Did she cry?
Isac: No. He was bleeding. He had fire in his mouth. Like this [makes dragon face]
Me: She must have been very sad?
Isac: Who?
Me: Emma
Isac: Who is Emma?
