Flammkuchen

Paul and I made Flammkuchen for supper last night. We hadn’t had these “German pizzas” in such a long time and really enjoyed them. We made three different ones (my favorite was goats cheese, honey, red onions and balsamic vinegar) and ate each of them right there in the kitchen while the next one was getting ready in the oven. With Yannick crawling around between our feet and a glass of red, so good! Quite the kitchen party! 😉

Blitz hummus

Hummus is so yummy, yet so easy and quick to make. And I find it really upgrades any simple bread snack, so I just made some for lunch. Not sure how close to the traditional recipe this actually is, but this is how I always make mine:

This is what you need:

  • 1 can chickpeas
  • 1 clove garlic
  • juice of 1/2 lime
  • 1 tsp salt
  • pepper
  • 1 tsp chili powder (or 1/2 tsp cumin)
  • 1 handful fresh parsley
  • 1 dash olive oil
  • optional: roasted red peppers, dried tomatoes, …

This is what you do:

Simply mix all the ingredients in a blender (I went for roasted red peppers this time, 4 tbsp or so). If you like the hummus less thick, add more olive oil or some of the liquid from the canned chickpeas.

Enjoy with fresh bread or tortilla chips!
