Zuccini pasta

Idag spenderade jag halva dagen på en marknad för inhandla råvaror och inspireras av det lokala. Fantastiska ostar, fiskar och annat gott inhandlades.

Andra halvan spenderade jag vid poolen. Man vet att man är i vacation mode när man kan ligga i 2 timmar och titta på fjärilar och trollsländor. Att drömma sig bort i böcker och tidningar känns helt onödigt när allt är så vackert. Paradisiskt.

Ikväll blir det pasta, ugns torkade grönsaker, ost och vin. Riktig pasta blir det för oss. Jag behöver äta något rejält, har levt på jos och grönt i 5 dagar nu och min kropp behöver grundande mat.

Alla tål inte gluten och vissa undviker det helt. Det finns fina raw food pastor att göra och zuccini pastan är väl den vanligaste. Jag föredrar pumpa eller sötpotatis men hittade inga idag.

Om du inte har en grönsaks spiral och vill göra “pasta” utan pasta…. finns det olika alternativ. Se nedan billiga alternativ som inte tar så stor plats i köket. Och inte kräver tid eller en massa diskande.

 

Today I spent half the day on a market purchasing loads of local and organic products. Getting inspitration from local farmers. Amazing cheeses, fish and other goodies where purchased.

The second half I spent by the pool. You know you’re in vacation mode when you spend 2 hours watching the butterflies and dragonflies. The need to dream away in books and magazines feels totally unnecessary when everything is so beautiful. Paradise!

Tonight we´re having pasta and oven dried vegetables, cheese and wine. Real gluten rich pasta, yes I eat this and pizza too.

I love the freedom to be able to eat what my body needs, knowing what and when after beeing so restrictive with my diet before.

Tonight I need to eat something substantial. It´s been lots of juice and plants  for 5 days now and my body needs grounding food.

But not everyone can eat gluten and some just avoid it completely. 

What´s great is that there are greatare raw food alternatives you can make. I guess zucchini pasta is the most common. I prefer to make mine out of pumpkin or sweet potatoes it´s crispier.

If you do not have a vegetable spiral and want to eat “pasta” without the pasta there are various options. I´ve placed out a few easy to handel and quick to use in the pictures so you can see how they look.

Lång peppar

Om man tolkar om ordet falafel till sanskrit blir det lång peppar, arabiska het peppar eller något fluffigt.

Det summerar ganska bra hur det smakar, lite starkt och kryddigt. Och känslan om man träffar rätt är väl lite fluffigt.

Den här varianten är plant baserad och nästan raw. Ofta när jag tillreder maten bränner jag kryddorna i en torr panna för att få fart på oljorna i dem. Så inte helt raw då, men för mig är smaken viktigare än labeln….

Till dessa fluffiga tussar dricker vi cocktails idag. Jag har dedikerat dem till 2 av mina favorit bar-män i Stockholm.

Andreas Bergman som driver Tjoget och just nu huserar i Visby med sin nattklubb Get A NightLife.

Mathin Lundgren som jobbbar på TeaterGrillen när han inte är pappa ledig till sin Flora. Han har även gett ut boken Barmästarens Manual.

Bägge två är regelbundet på Matmarkanden och inhandlar frukt till drinks eller små shots att återställa sig med.

Bägge två prioriterar bra kvalite på råvaror och är inte rädda för att sticka ut. Sånt som jag gillar och respekterar.

 

Raw falafel.

3 dl groddade gröna linser.

2 dl blötlagda och aktiverade cashewnötter.

1 vitlöks klyfta.

1 citron zest och juice. Pressa själv och sila bort fiber alt använd en slowjuicer eller kallpress.

1 apelsin zest och juice. Pressa själv och sila bort fiber alt använd en slowjuicer eller kallpress.

4 msk olivolja.

1 tsk bränd cayenne.

2 tsk bränd spiskummin.

2 tsk bränd sötpaprika pulver.

1/2 hakad färsk koriander.

2 msk tamari.

I den här batchen använd jag även de oxhjärts tomater jag torkade i går till lasangen. Inte ett måste men om det finns ta ca 4 soltorkade tomater och blötlägg i tomat juice. Se varför jag använder råjuicen istället för vatten här.

Preppa juicerna innan och kyl. Blötlägg och aktivera nötterna någon dag innan. Det kan vara bra att göra mycket på en gång så det finns i skafferiet.

Bränn kryddorna.

Mixa allt till en krämig deg och lägg ut små rundlar eller egg över ett bakplåts papper eller torkungs underlag.

Torka i ca 6 h på 40° eller i tork ugn över natten.

Servera i gröna blad med hyvlade grönsaker och fruktiga såser.

Drick cocktails till.

Vi ska dricka de två jag gjort till A och M. “Flora the Bellini och Kinky KoKo.

 

If one interprets the word falafel from Sanskrit it becomes long pepper. In Arabic, hot pepper or something fluffy.
The meaning of the name kind of sums up how it tastes. A bit strong, a tad spicy and if you make it into perfection it´s a bit fluffy in the middle.

This variant is plant-based and almost raw. Often when I prepare the food I burn the spices in a dry pan to activate the oils in them. So not quite raw but for me the flavor is more important than label.

To acompany these fluffy balls we´re having cocktails tonight. I´ve named them after two of my favorite bar men in Stockholm.

Andreas Bergman who runs Tjoget and is in Visby this summer with his nightclub Get A Night Life.

Mathin Lundgren who works at Teatergrillen when he is not a father to his lovely daughter Flora. He has also published the book Barmästarens manual.

Both of them are regulars at Stockholms Matmarkand getting fruits for drinks or small shots to restore themselves with.

Both of them give lots of thought to good quality in what they use and they are´t afraid to stand out. Things that I love and respect.

Raw falafel.

3 dl of sprouted green lentils.

2 dl soaked and activated cashews.

1 garlic clove.

1 lemon both zest and juice. Squeeze yourself and strain out the fiber alt use a slow juices or cold press.

1 orange both zest and juice. Squeeze yourself and strain out the fiber alt use a slow juices or cold press.

4 tablespoons olive oil.

1 teaspoon burned cayenne .

2 tsp burned cumin.

2 tsp burnt sweet pepper powder.

1/2 dl chopped fresh coriander.

2 tablespoons tamari.

In this batch I used the oxheart tomatoes I dried yesterday. It´s not a must. But if you want to use it take about 4 sundried tomatoes and soak in tomato juice. See why I use raw juice instead of water here.

Prep the juices before and store in the fridge. Soak and dry the nuts a day before. dry loads so you have around in the kitchen.

Burn the spices.

Mix everything into a creamy dough. Roll into small balls or eggforms and place on a baking paper.

Dry in a regular oven for 6 hours at 40 ° or in the dehydratore over night.

Serve in green leafy vegetables with more plants and fruity hot sauces.

AND drink cocktails.

Tonight we will drink the two I made to A and M.  I named them “Flora the Bellini and “Kinky KoKo”.

How to make a great entrance and a graceful sortiee.

Yoga has been in my life for the last 15 years. I used to be a teacher and that was 12 years of my life.

I loved to teach and I think I was pretty good at it. But for many reasons I stoped and that halt took me to where I am today.

As I continue to contribute the Rawness blogg we will touch all those places of my life. But for now all I can say about it that I´m finally really happy. I´m starting to like who I am and I love what I do.

I´m lucky. I´ve worked with the three of my passions in life. Fashion, yoga, now food and writing about it.

It´s both a blessing and a curse to do this. Or not a curse but it takes you places you´ve nerver thought you´d end up in. And it teaches you stuff you didn´t think you needed.

Without the daily practice of yoga I´m not sure I would´ve survived my crash courses of emtions. I wouldn´t have developed into a better version of who I was before.

Gone are the days when yoga was my jobb and with that the luxury of always having a shala to pracitce in AND the time…..

But I´m greatful. Now working with what I do I get the best produce, products, plants, education, food and drink a girl could wish for.

Yoga teaches us many things about our bodies and minds. But if you listen a bit more to the words and the actions you will see it also and foremost mirrors you in life and where you stand.

You get to meet the supernovas of your personality. Like handstands, deep back bends, thouching of toes, standing still in chaos, being able to keep on breathing in deep unknow waters and simpliy returning to your mat.

And wheter you want it or not your demons will come out and play with you. Fuck with you until you see, feel, live, talk, reason and learn to live with them in peace.

The demons or your bad habits are the keys to getting your life in balance. When you can have a glass of wine with them or a coffe then you´ll know they´ll be THE creative force to becoming you.

And that´s the reason why yoga is my choice of cure for all my vices.

Where ever the yoga takes you, you will need cruches and side tracks to help you see where to focus.

The pulling of the yoga top, touching of your hair.

The nervous cough.

The aggressive force vs the lethargic.

The I´ll start tomorrow or the I must must do every day.

All those things need to be there till you´re ready to let go and learn how to walk without the aid of a bad habit.

That´s how you learn to make a great entrance and a graceful sortiee.
