In times, I am not sure what to cook, a delicious stew is often the first (and most often best) choice. A few ingredients are thrown into a large pot, you let them cook/brown a bit to get some nice flavors, and then you add broth or something similar. A short time later you got yourself a delicious meal ready to be served. This simple Sausage, Potato & White Jumbo Bean Stew also follows this principle. Everything is done in one pot and super easy to do. You can enjoy the stew on a cold day as well as on warm days – always great! ;)
It’s still a bit cold in Germany right now – this means it’s the perfect time for some delicious stew. »Germany meets Spain« is something you could say about this dish. A delicious Stew with Potatoes, Beans, Brussels Sprouts, and Chorizo. You could also call it a German-Spanish chili. If you are not shy when it comes to adding spices to the stew ;) Otherwise, this is just a super tasty dish, not too complicated, and perfect for the Brussels sprouts season (September through March here in Germany). The step-by-step instructions in the recipe below make this delicious dish quite easy to prepare.
If you are the type of person that does not want to spend a lot of time in the kitchen cooking, something like a simple soup or stew is always a good choice. In a short time, you can prepare a delicious meal with a few simple ingredients that can feed a large family if you want to ;) This Vegan Chickpea & Potato Soup takes about 1 hour until it’s ready on the table, but the majority of that time you don’t have to do anything. You let the soup simmer away and actually do not even have to pay attention to it until it’s done ;)
There are two options here in Germany when it comes to dinner on Christmas Eve: you either cook a lot or you do not cook at all… or only the bare minimum to not let the family starve ;P In many German families it’s tradition to not (really) cook for Christmas. We love to serve simple dishes like Potato Salad with Sausages (aka. Wieners). The perfect dish to make (in my option) when you have already enough to do with decorating and the whole gift wrapping and stuff like that. Right? ;)
I got something for all you kale fans out there. Well… actually there is not that much kale in this Zuppa Toscana, to be honest. It’s actually more like “the green icing on top of the cake”. Yeah, you could say that ;) Anyway – the soup is the perfect meal on a cold winter day to warm you from the inside and give you all the energy (means calories) you need to keep you warm when going outside ;P
Some of you might have noticed it already – I am a huge fan of stews and all those dishes where you throw a lot of stuff into one pot and cook it. Sometimes it’s not easy to decide on what to cook because there are sooo many options ;) Today I got a new recipe for a stew with Brussels sprouts, potatoes, and chorizo – Germany meets Spain, you could say. The latest delicious addition to my stews recipe list.
Hi, my name is Marc. I'm a graphic designer.
I love my job, but in between I love to bake and try new things in the kitchen. A lot of my friends and colleagues encourage me to bake - for a very simple reason: they get the leftovers - and it seems they like it most of the time ;)
