Skinny Cream Potatoes!

In Denmark we have this Potato dish. It’s called Cream Potatoes, and the name basically tells every secret there is to this dish: Potatoes and Cream. It is a very traditional type of potatoes, and in Denmark Cream Potatoes is literally a part of any party buffet. You get 2-3 types of meat, some nice salads, some kind of oven baked potato and then always Cream potatoes.

And I will not lie: I love Cream Potatoes. Come on! Everybody in Denmark loves Cream potatoes. The basic recipe is something like this: Potatoes, onion, salt, pepper, nutmeg and cream. And what you do it just literally bake slices of potatoes covered in cream! That’s it. No prepping, no mixing, no anything.

If this sounds familiar, it’s probably because it’s a lot like scalloped potatoes – without the cheese. But enough about this classic. I’m going to make a version you can eat all the time with no (or little) risk of a heart attack.Skinny Vegan Cream Potatoes Continue reading “Skinny Cream Potatoes!”

Quiche № 2: Potato & Onion

We are staying in the cheapest end of quiches. This is the winner in the budget friendly quiche category with only 20,- (Equal to 3 dollars) for a 4 person quiche. That is not a lot and you can thank the Spanish people for this. It is simply a Spanish Tortilla in a crust.

But at the same time this might be my favorite quiche. So simple and yet so delicious. Yum, yum, yum!

Roasted Chickpeas and Budget Friendly Salad!

It shall be no secret, that I am one big fan of vegetables. They just always taste so good! In a nice minestrone soup, with scrambled eggs, as a snack in a stick or like a salad!

But the salads. Oh, how I find it hard to keep up the creativity when making salads. My biggest problem is, that I always find amazing salad recipes online – but then – when it’s time to shop – all the ingredients are so expensive. In Denmark nuts are exceptionally expensive. Spinach and arugula cost twice as much as iceberg, and even cherry tomatoes can cost enough to wrinkle my nose.

I’m not poor or anything – don’t feel sorry for me! But I’m super cheap or stingy or whatever. Always have been. I hate spending money on stuff that isn’t necessary. And I don’t think arugula or almonds are gonna be missed in my everyday salad.

Since I believe, that I am not the only one that keeps my money in my pocket this is 3 recipes in 1 for a great and cheap salad that is fancy enough for guests. I originally served this with my Chicken Tikka Masala – but then I had leftovers and therefore I had to serve it with the Swedish Sausage Dish and Beef and Brown Onions too. All of which was great. And the final leftovers I ate for lunch – cause nothing should be wasted here!
