Chakchouka – Spicy Vegetable Mix / Krydret Grønnsakrøre

This tasty dish is the Moroccan reply in Frenc’s well known ratatouille. It is similar to the French dish only better if you let it mature a few days in the refrigerator. The flavours go together making a firework of tastes.

caponata palermitana_post

A delicious vegetable lunch dish full of Mediterranean goodies. Serve it with fresh ciabattas og en Ruffino Classico and close your eyes and imagine yourself seated at a sidewalk table in Palermo. Sounds nice doesn’t it, particularly here in Oslo, where the winter’s first snow fell yesterday – Ted  😉

Pizza is as nutritious and as good a food as a warm cheese sandwiches.

If you want a stronger taste on the pizza, spread a  little ketchup or tomato paste on the dough before adding the vegetables. As cheese you can use any firm white cheese. Mixing different cheeses works well too.
