French Ratatouille Tarte (vegan)

It’s a while since I posted a recipe (or wrote in general) on my blog. However, while writing my bachelorthesis which goes along with spending a lot of hours in front of the computer I decided to take a break and do something practical: Cooking. And after travelling I’m in parents’ kitchen where I know what to find where, so let’s spend some time in the kitchen and relax a bit. Yes, you read right, for me cooking is mostly relaxing, if I’m not stressed :)

I decided to go for ratatouille. To make a bit more interesting, but still not too complicated or too time consuming, I decided to make a ratatouille-tarte. Ratatouille comes from Nice, a city in Southern France. That’s why the ordinary ratatouille we know today was formerly called ratatouille niçoise.

It’s a perfect summer dish due to the lots and lots of colorful and delicious vegetables. I know, it’s not summer yet, but if you just returned from Norway like me it feels a bit like that :)

Polish Kluski Slaskie

While I was exchange student in Latvia, I got the possibility to meet a lot of people from different countries. There was also someone fro Poland. And when she got to know about my blog and that I’m always looking for traditional recipes, she suggested instantly to cook somthing from her country.

What recipe did she suggest me? Kluski śląskie! Well, okay, I also can’t pronounce it properly ;) But it basically means potato dumplings. And while I actually have to admit that I don’t cook so much typical German stuff with my family, she told me that her mother and she do the potato dumplings every month together.

Vegan German Schupfnudeln

Yes, we’re going to my home country, to Germany! Or well, there are some rumours that Schupfnudeln – the dish I want to present you today – are from Austria. However, I always got to know them as typical dish from southern Germany, so I’ll just pretend they are German :)

This recipe is already known in a similar way since the thirty years’ war when soldiers made longish pasta (and the German word “Nudeln” means pasta) out of flour and water. Later on they added potatoes which are nowadays the main ingredient of Schupfnudeln.

Italian Mushroom-Lasagna

Mushroom-Lasagna! It was one of the first dishes I cooked for my blog and I still love it! Might be because I simply love mushrooms as well as lasagna. So mushroom-lasagna obviousely sounds awesome to me!

By the way did you know that there are different theories about the origin of lasagna? One theory says that it comes from an English dish called loseyns which was already mentioned in the 14th century.

Well, no matter whether the origin is Italian or English, I could eat lasagna every second day =D What about you?

Mushroom Pumpkin Frittata.

I know, I’m quite late for an autumn recipe. But maybe you still have some pumpkin at home? Then you should definitely try this recipe! It’s so easy, you don’t need much time and it’s delicious!

Before that I didn’t try too much with chickpea flour. But a friend of mine is eating glutenfree, so it came to my mind to try to prepare more dishes without gluten. One of these dishes is this one: Something italian (like to often :)). But this time exceptionally without pasta and rice, we’re doing Pumpkin-Mushroom-Frittata.

Traditionally Frittata is made of eggs and you prepare it on a pan. We don’t need a pan neither eggs :)
