Oat Balls

In Denmark we do a lot of different treats for Christmas and this is one of them. There are so many differents recipes and almost every Dane makes them differently, but here you’ll get my recipe :)

This recipe will make around 25-35 balls

Ingredients

175 g of Cooking Oats
100 g of Powdered/confectioners sugar
4½ tbsp of Cocoa powder
½ tsp of Pure vanilla powder
100-135 g of Soft butter

You cansubstitute some of the butter and sugar with honey. You can add orange zest, alcohol, cinnemon and so on, only your imagination is the limit. Just remember that you need to be able to form balls of the “dough”, so it should be too dry, too sticky or too wet!

How to

Mix the dry ingredients in a bowl then add the butter and combine it with your hands. Yes this is messy and your hands will be dirty, but it’s worth it in the end! Form balls and coat them in cocoa powder, shredded coconut or powdered sugar. Let them set in the fridge for at least 2 hours and enjoy :D The balls can be kept in the fridge for up to 4 days

Creamed Potatoes

This is not a recipe for people on a diet. Seriously it contains a lot of calories, but you can pair it with turkey, a salad or any other healthy food you want. It’s okay to sin once in a while and to me this is the ultimate “Sinners” dish XD

Ingredients:

700g of Pre-cooked sliced potatoes (You can usually buy them already pre-cooked)
150g of Broccoli
100g of Mushrooms
250ml of Cooking cream
100g of Shredded cheese (It needs to be a more fatty cheese)
Salt
Pepper

How to:

Step1: Turn your oven to 175°C and get that out of the way.

Step 2: Roast the mushrooms in a pan until they get some colour

Step 3: Put a layer of sliced potatoes in a ovenproof dish and add some mushrooms and broccoli. Season this layer a bit and put a small amunt of cheese and cream on. Then put another layer of potatoes and continues the layering until the last layer which has to be potatoes. Then add the rest of the cheese and cream.

Step 4: Bake until everything is cooked. It usually takes 1-1½ hour. If the cheese is starting to burn, put some foil over it and continue to bake.

½ tsp of Baking Soda

How to:

Set your oven to 175°C and get that out of the way while you mix the batter.

Whisk the soft butter and sugar until it’s airy. Put in the brown sugar and the egg, whisk until everything is combined. Mix the flour, salt, baking soda and vanillasugar and pour it into the butter/sugar/egg mix and whisk again till everything is combined. Put in the chocolate and mix until it’s all combined.

Place a teaspoon of the mixture on a baking tray and continue until the tray is filled. Bake in the oven for 7-15 minutes, depending on the size.

Spaghetti Pomodoro

This is the perfect recipe for vegetarians. It only contains vegetable and is fairly easy to make. You can serve it with some nice Italian bread and a salad if you want. You can of course substitute the white pasta with brown/whole grain pasta to make it more healthy.

Ingredients:

1 Onion
2 Garlic cloves
1 Can of chopped tomatoes
140 g of tomato purée
4½ dl of vegetable stock
3 tbsp of ketchup
1 tsp of paprika
1 tsp of dried oregano
Salt and peber to taste

How to:

Finely chop the onion and garlic. Put some oil in a pot and brown the onion/garlic mix. Add a bit of stock, but be careful! Add the can of chopped tomatoes and put in the spices. Let it boil so most of the water will evaporate. Add the tomato purée and the rest of the stock (little by little) while stirring. Let is simmer for around 15 minutes on medium-low. Add the ketchup and taste. Season further if needed.

Serve it with spaghetti or fresh pasta and voila you’re done.

Bon Appétit!
