When I was living in Norway I met many amazing people. One of these people is Emma. I met her in Tromsø where she was very active, for example for the local animal welfare organisation Dyrebeskyttelsen as well as for NOAH, Norways biggest animal rights organisation. And when I asked her, if she’d like to help with a vegan bake sale and later with a presentation about veganism in Tromsø, she agreed on the spot.
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 :)
