Portuguese Bolo-rei

So? Do you still have those extra candied fruit boxes you bought last Christmas? Because THIS Christmas you would make bolo-rei right? And actually when you came back from the grocery store you realized that you still had candied fruit from the Christmas before that. And actually you have no f*ckin’ ideia of what the heck am I talking about because you’re not portuguese and you don’t even know what bolo-rei is right? Or if you,re portuguese and you’re reading this post in english… well… you may be stupid… I don’t know… but there is a portuguese version for every post. Moving on, are you familiarized with german stollen, italian panettone, or english christmas pudding? Bolo-rei is just like that, but much better because it’s portuguese. You didn’t know everything is better in Portugal? What an idiot…

Seitan, mushrooms and port wine

I promised I would post more Christmas recipes. I always keep my promises. But I’m portuguese. And of course I’m late as f*ck. Anyways, this blog was never about fancy food. I have always tried to share simple, handy and easy recipes. Tasty but healthy food, that does not demmand much technical knowledge, made out of cheap and easy to find products. That has always been my goal with this project. But every once in a while it’s nice to eat something a bit more complex. Something that says “I’m such a f*ckin good chef!”. I hope I’m still on time to inspire someone to inspire someone else.

Christmas Chickpea Cookies

I’ve always been a huge Christmas entusiast. I don’t know when it started and I can’t even remember caring that much about the presents I would get when I was a kid. But I do remember, since ever, being very excited about what I would eat. Since very young I’ve always loved gathering at the table, specially with all the family sitting together. Unfortunately ocasions like that are not as common as I would like it to be. Specially nowadays that I live far from home.

Persimmon, Apricot and Banana Smoothie

This weird reddish fruit is particularly rich in tanines, specially the variety dyospiros kaki (commonly known as kaki in europe), therefore it’s astringency. In other words, when you bite one of these persimmon before fully ripened, it will feel like you licked your dog’s feet and then brushed your teeth with vine leaves. Hmmm… This may not be that easy to visualize. Let’s move on.

Some sort of Milk Bread

First time I had a hot dog served in a hot dog bun was when I joined 5th grade. There, in my school, they used to serve timg00006142he hot dog with that american style bun that looks like milk bread. I clearly remember the first time I tried it – it was disgusting. Sweet bread with a sausage, ketchup and mostard? WTF??? The few times I had a hot dog before that it was on a baguete or in a papo-seco (a typical portuguese bun).

Nutella – Choco Hazelnut Spread

This recipe doesn’t taste like nutella. Even I can guarantee you that. It’s not as creamy or sweet. But it is quite tasty and MUCH healthier. Still not something I would recommend eating with a spoon, specially if you’re looking for losing some weight. But, compared with the original product, it is super healthy indeed. If you enjoy the taste of pure roasted hazelnuts, you will love this. Besides, homemade is always better right?
