Vegan Chickpea Stew

Hoppas du haft en härlig vecka så här långt. Jag började jobba i måndags efter 5 veckor ledighet så nu är hela familjen tillbaka till de vanliga rutinerna igen 🙂

Har ett mycket gott recept till er idag som är perfekt nu när graderna utomhus har börjat sjunka och September och hösten är på ingång. Här har man iallafall fått börja ha på sig höstjackan!

Detta är ett recept på en Vegansk Kikärtsgryta och den är väldigt god och det är en perfekt rätt att laga mer utav som du sedan kan spara i kylskåpet för att ha till lunchlådan till jobbet eller att ha och värma upp när du inte orkar laga någon ny mat.

Hope you’ve had a wonderful week so far. I started working on Monday after 5 weeks of being off work so now the whole family is back to the usual routines again 🙂

I’ve got a very good recipe for you today that is perfect now when it has started to be chilly and September and autumn are on the entrance. Here we have at least started wearing the autumn jacket!

This is a recipe for a Vegan Chickpeas Stew and it’s a great dish to cook more of so you can save some in the fridge to have for the lunch box to work or to warm up when you don’t feel like cooking.

Vegan Chickpea Stew

English recipe below.

Vegansk Kikärtsgryta

3-4 portioner

Ingredienser:

  • 2 tsk olivolja
  • 1 röd el gul lök
  • 1 klyfta vitlök
  • 380 g kikärtor
  • 250 g broccoli, morot och blomkål blandning (frusna grönsaker)
  • 400 g kokosmjölk
  • 1-2 msk curry (beror på hur mycket currysmak du önskar)
  • 3 tsk spiskummin
  • Salt och peppar

Tillagning:

  1. Dela löken i mindre grova bitar (behöver ej hackas)
  2. Om du använder en sån blandning med frusna grönsaker som jag gör till denna grytan, ta en skål och häll i grönsakerna. Häll sedan över varmt vatten och låt skålen stå till grönsakerna har tinat.
  3. Värm en kastrull och tillsätt oljan. Lägg sen över löken i kastrullen.
  4. Skala vitlöksklyftan och ta ett litet rivjärn och riv ner vitlöken med den andra löken och låt det fräsa ett par minuter tills löken är mjuk.
  5. Lägg i grönsakerna och låt dem fräsa med medans du fixar kikärtorna.
  6. Häll över kikärtorna i en sil eller ett durkslag och skölj kikärtorna med vatten om du använder köpta förkokta kikärtor. Lägg sedan över alla kikärtor i kastrullen med det andra.
  7. Till sist tillsätter du kokosmjölken och blandar allt tillsammans. Smaka av med kryddorna till önskad smak.

Servera den här härliga veganska kikärtsgryta tillsammans med råris. Jag tycker den är mättande, men vill man ha så kan man ha lite god sallad till också 🙂

Kanske undrar du varför jag plötsligt börjar komma med veganska recept här på bloggen, för fler recept kommer framöver. Det kommer ett separat inlägg om just det inom kort 🙂 Justeringar kommer det även bli kring recept kategorierna då bloggen kommer förändras lite smått då även jag har gått igenom förändringar. Spännande är de, men jag kommer som sagt förklara närmare om detta i ett kommande inlägg!

A very nice Chickpea Stew with a base of coconut milk, chickpeas, veggies, and curry. Great recipe for Vegans.

Author: Jeanette - Take A Sweet Bite
Ingredients
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1 red or yellow onion
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 380 grams chickpeas
  • 250 grams broccoli, carrot and cauliflower mix (frozen mix)
  • 400 grams coconut milk
  • 1-2 tablespoons curry spice
  • 3 teaspoons cumin
Instructions
  1. Divide the onion in the middle and slice the onion.

  2. Heat a saucepan with olive oil.

  3. If the vegetables are frozen. Put the vegetables in a bowl and pour over warm water and let it be until the vegetables are thawed.

  4. Add onion slices and tear the garlic and add it. Let the onion and garlic fry a minute until the onion is soft.

  5. Strain the water from the vegetables and add them into the saucepan with the onion.

  6. Strain the chickpeas with water if you use chickpeas that are pre-cooked from the store and add them in.

  7. Pour over the coconut milk and at the end add the spices after the taste you wish to have. 

This stew is great to serve with brown rice. It's a saturating stew but you can have a small fresh salad with it too.

Maybe you wonder why I suddenly start posting vegan recipes here on the blog, cause more recipes will come. There will be a separate post on just that soon 🙂 Adjustments will also happen with the recipe categories as the blog will change a little bit, as I have gone through changes. It’s exciting, but as I said, I will explain more about this in an upcoming post!

Blueberry Treats

Fredagen är här och vad passar då inte bättre med nåt lite sött och gott. Något som passar utmärkt till fikat 🙂

Visste inte till en början vad jag skulle kalla dessa små godsaker för nåt, men Blueberry Treats passar ändå väldigt bra så det namnet fick det bli 🙂

It’s Friday and what doesn’t suit better than something sweet and good. Something to serve with the coffee, tea or like we say in Sweden…fika 🙂

I didn’t know what to call these small treats in the beginning, but Blueberry Treats fit pretty good so it had to be that name 🙂

Blueberry Treats

8-9 st

Ingredienser

  • 1 paket smördeg
  • 2-3 dl blåbär (fräscha eller tinade)
  • 5 dl marsán/vaniljkräm

Tillagning

  1. Sätt ugnen på 175 grader och ta fram en muffinsplåt.
  2. Rulla ut smördegen och ta en rund liten dessertskål eller en mindre rund form som du kan trycka ut med, något som hjälper dig att få till runda smördegsplattor som passar i muffinsplåten. Det ska bli som små koppar med fyllning i, så det är viktigt att smördegen går runt upp på sidorna.
  3. När du fått smördegsplattorna på plats, lägg då i lite blåbärpå botten i varje form.
  4. Klicka sen i en eller ett par matskedar med vaniljkräm över blåbären och avsluta med att toppa med några blåbär på toppen.
  5. Grädda i mitten på ugnen i 35-40 minuter. Du ser när smördegen runt om har fått en fin gyllende, då är dem klara.

 3 ingredient blueberry treats that you can make quickly. Great to serve with a cup of coffee or tea.

Servings: 8 treats
Author: Jeanette - Take A Sweet Bite
Ingredients
  • 1 package puff pastry
  • 1,2 cups blueberry (fresh or defrosted)
  • 2,1 cups vanilla curd
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 175 Celsius (347 F) and get a muffin pan.

  2. Roll out the pastry and take a small dessert bowl or a smaller round form that you can press out small pastry plates with. You will make small cups in the muffin pan with the pastry, so it's important that you get pastry up on the sides as well. 

  3. Add in the bottom a little blueberry.

  4. Take a tablespoon and add 1-2 spoons of vanilla curd over the blueberries in each pastry cup.

  5. On top add more blueberries.

  6. Let the treats bake in the middle of the oven for 35-40 minutes. You see when the pastry on the sides has a nice golden color, then they are done.

Recipe Notes

I'm not sure how well this works by using paper muffin cups. You can try if you don't have a muffin pan, but I recommend to use a muffin pan as it is much more steady.

Macaroni Casserole with Bacon and Ham

Take A Sweet Bite var från början tänkt att enbart vara en bakblogg, men jag har beslutat efter att ha haft ett sommaruppehåll att jag önskar publicera mer. Eftersom jag tycker mycket om att laga mat och jag lagar ganska mycket mat eftersom vi är 5 familjemedlemmar 🙂 Jag jobbar ett par kvällar i veckan, men oftast lagar jag middag 4-5 dagar i veckan. 2 vuxna och 3 barn innebär att jag lagar mestadels mat som passar både vuxna och barn.

Jag har tagit beslutet att jag vill lägga till middagsrecept för familjer på bloggen också 🙂 Jag hoppas ni tycker om den idén för jag ser fram emot att  kunna dela mer innehåll med er. Mina recept är inte för 4 personer, utan mina middagsrecept är en lite större mängd. Runt 6-8 portioner brukar det bli när jag lagar mat då både jag och min man behöver ha matlåda till jobbet 🙂

I’ve taken the decision that I want to also start to share family-friendly dinner recipes on the blog. As I really enjoy cooking and I often cook 4-5 times a week when I’m not working evening shifts for my family and we are 5 family members, 2 adults, and 3 kids. So I would like to share great dinner recipes for families that are more than 4 people, so my dinner recipes are mostly about 6-8 portions as both I and my husband bring lunchboxes for work 🙂

Först ut vill jag tipsa om ett enkelt middagsrecept som är omtyckt av oss här hemma. Makaronigratäng är något som man kan variera på många sätt och här kommer ett recept med bacon och skinka.

The first dinner recipe I wish to share with you is a simple recipe which we like a lot in my home. Macaroni Casserole can you do in many ways and this is with bacon and ham. 

macaroni casserole

Makaronigratäng med bacon och skinka

8 portioner

Ingredienser:

  • 6 dl makaroner
  • 250 gram ärtor
  • 280 gram tärnad bacon (2×140 gram)
  • 180 gram rökt strimlad skinka
  • 6 ägg
  • 6 dl mjölk
  • salt och peppar
  • 150 gram riven ost (valfri sort)

Tillagning:

  1. Koka makaronerna enligt förpackningen. (Går bra att inte koka dem helt klara då dem kommer tillagas lite i ugnen också)
  2. Sätt ugnen på 200 grader.
  3. Hetta upp en stekpanna utan fett.
  4. Stek baconbitarna tills dem är nästan knaperstekta och häll i ärtorna. Är ärtorna frysta, så låt dem bli genomvarma.
  5. Vispa ägg och mjölk i en skål och tillsätt salt och peppar.
  6. Häll över makaronerna i en större djup ugnsform eller ta två mindre formar. (Jag brukar fördela i två stycken, så det blir två formar).
  7. Tillsätt sedan bacon och ärtblandningen och den tärnade skinkan. Blanda runt så det blandas jämt med makaronerna.
  8. Häll över ägg och mjölkblandningen i formen.
  9. Fördela riven ost över och blanda gärna osten lite i formen så det inte enbart blir ett osttäcke över. (Man kan ha ett vanligt osttäcke över om man vill, men jag föredrar att blanda i osten något)
  10. Servera med sallad.

NOTIS Tiden i ugnen är baserad på två mindre formar. Så tillagar du det i en stor form, så kan tillagningstiden behöva ökas något.

A nice dish for both kids and adults. Perfect recipe for busy days.

Servings: 8 portions
Author: Jeanette - Take A Sweet Bite
Ingredients
  • 2,5 cups uncooked macaroni
  • 280 grams diced bacon
  • 250 grams peas
  • 180 grams shredded ham
  • 2,5 cups milk
  • 150 grams grated cheese
Instructions
  1. Boil the macaroni after the package instruction.

  2. Start the oven on 200 degrees (392 F)

  3. Heat a pan without butter. Add the diced bacon and fried the bacon for 3-5 minutes.


  4. When the bacon is almost done, add the peas. I used frozen peas and I let the peas fried with the bacon for about 3 minutes.

  5. Take a big oven casserole or two smaller and add the boiled macaroni.

  6. Whisk eggs and milk together in a bowl and add little salt and pepper. 

  7. Add the bacon and peas into the casserole and then the shredded ham and blend it with the macaroni and pour over the egg and milk mix.

  8. Add the grated cheese and blend it a little in the casserole, so the cheese isn't only on top.

  9. Let the macaroni casserole cook for 35-40 minutes on the middle section in the oven.

  10. Serve with a salad.

Recipe Notes

You can use which cheese you'll like in dish casserole.

NOTE The cooking time for this recipe is based on two smaller casserole oven forms, so if you use one big casserole you may need to extend the cooking time some.

Pineapple Pie

Hi dear bakers!

I know I’ve been gone from this blog for a while and I’m so sorry for that, but now I’m back and ready to get back into baking and share lovely recipes with you ♥

Today I’ve had a day off work and I feel very excited, cause on Friday it’s my last work day and then I will take a 5 weeks break and have a great summer vacation with my family. Been waiting a long time for this…well, like 2 months when my summer mode kicked in because of the really hot weather we’ve had for a long time 🙂 Finally we can relax, have fun, do shorter family trips and do housework that needs to be done.

We are kicking off our vacation by going to a Guns n’ Roses concert this Saturday 🙂

Besides from working out, relaxing and doing laundry, I’ve baked this really nice pineapple pie today.

pineapple pie

A few years ago I was served Pineapple Pie at work as a co-worker of mine had baked one and served it to us when we had a break, and that was my first time eating Pineapple Pie. I was amazed at how good it was and so easy peasy to do, cause, of course, we others wanted to have the recipe.

This is not the recipe though as it’s slightly different but just as good as I can remember 🙂

White Chocolate Cranberry Cookies

It’s Monday and if you want to kick-start your week with something sweet, my recipe of White Chocolate Cranberry Cookies can help you with that 🙂

On Friday I had cleaned the house and I felt like baking some nice cookies and as one of my favorite cookies are cookies from the store, that are chocolate chip cookies with white chocolate and cranberries I wanted to try to make my own homemade cookies inspired from those cookies.

These turned out to be amazing and so crunchy yummy!

Servings: 28 Cookies
Author: Jeanette - Take a Sweet Bite
Ingredients
  • 150 grams melt butter
  • 1.4 cups sugar
  • 2 tablespoons dark syrup
  • 1 egg
  • 1 yolk
  • 1.6 cups flour
  • 3/4 teaspoon bicarbonate
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla sugar
  • 0.5 teaspoon salt
  • 0.4 cup white cocolate buttons
  • 0.4 cup dried cranberries
Instructions
  1. Start the oven to 175 Celcius (347 F) and prepare two oven trays with baking sheets.

  2. Whisk sugar, vanilla sugar, syrup, egg and the yolk together. 

  3. Pour in the melted butter who has cooled down a little and add half of the cup with chocolate buttons and cranberries. You want to have a little to put on top later as well.

  4. Take a separate bowl and mix together the flour, bicarbonate, and salt. Then add the flour mixture and whisk everything together to a firm cookie dough. It can be hard to whisk, so I can recommend you to use a spoon or your hands when you add the flour mixture.

  5. Create small e round balls, like in the size 2,5-3 cm in diameter. Then use two fingers and push in the middle of each ball and make each cookie a little flatter. They don't need to be perfectly round in shape 🙂

  6. To add even more goodies, I recommend using the rest of the chocolate buttons and cranberries and add it to each cookie.

  7. Let the cookies bake in the lower section in the oven for about 10-11 minutes. You want them to get like a slight golden color before you take them out.

  8. Let them cool down on the counter before you move them from the oven tray.

I let my cookies stay in the oven for 12 minutes, but I can recommend you to take them out after 10-11 minutes if you want them to be chewier in the middle. They get crunchy around the corners and chewy in the middle. Sooo delicious!

Perfect tea or coffee cookies 🙂

Gluten-Free Carrot Cake

Want to start by wishing you a lovely Friday and weekend that we have in front of us 🙂 It was a long time since I baked anything with carrots and I really wanted to do a yummy carrot recipe for you, so what a chock. I have a really delicious gluten-free carrot cake recipe for you today 🙂

Gluten Free Carrot Cake

This amazing gluten-free carrot cake recipe is kind of addicting I must say 🙂  It’s a very soft and moist cake and the best thing is that it isn’t just gluten-free, it also is less sugar in this cake. I wanted to make something for you who may not want or need a huge sugar rush and are looking for something less sweet and that is both gluten-free and with less sugar. So, this carrot cake is perfect!

Gluten-Free Carrot Cake
Author: Jeanette - Take a Sweet Bite
Ingredients
  • 4 eggs
  • 1.2 cups stevia sugar
  • 0.8 cup rapeseed oil
  • 200 grams grated carrots
  • 1 lemon peel
  • 0.5 lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon baking soda
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla powder
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1.2 cups almond flour
  • 0.2 cup light chocolate buttons
Instructions
  1. Turn on the oven to 180 Celcius (356 F)

  2. Prepare the grated carrots.

  3. Put eggs and stevia sugar in a deep baking bowl and whisk with an electric mixer for about 2 minutes.

  4. Add oil, the grated carrots, lemon peel and lemon juice. Whisk it together a few seconds.

  5. At last add baking powder, vanilla powder, cinnamon and almond flour and whisk it until you have a nice dark cake batter. 

  6. Pour the batter into a pan in the size about 31x20 cm.  Add the chocolate buttons on top and put the pan in middle of the oven. Let the cake bake for 40-45 minutes. NOTE: The time depends on the oven you use!

  7. Let the cake cool down on the counter and then cut the cake into smaller pieces (or bigger if you want :))

Recipe Notes

NOTE: If you want to make it with even less sugar, you can skip the chocolate buttons or you can choose sugar-free chocolate instead.

 Gluten-free recipe

As you may have already figured it out, I still want to mention that you can’t compare this gluten-free and less sugar carrot cake with a classic carrot cake. This is a little different from when you use all-purpose flour and sugar. But these small carrot cake pieces are very addicting 🙂

My youngest daughter wanted the one piece after another and as a mother, it doesn’t feel too bad to give your child a cake like this in the middle of the week. Cause it’s less sugar in them!

Recipe Notes

Start with like 2 tablespoons of color and add more if you want to make the frosting a bright yellow color!

Decorate the cupcakes with something Easter related, like colorful sprinkles, chocolate eggs or jelly candy eggs.

When my daughter saw these chocolate Easter cupcakes on the counter after she came home from school that day, she really brightening up and wanted to have one immediately. She thought they were so pretty 🙂

Really love using cream cheese frosting, cause it balances the sweet icing sugar very well and it makes the frosting to not being too sweet.

Nutella and Vanilla Cream Rolls

Had such a lovely weekend home alone with my kids, as my husband were in Germany over the weekend. Yesterday we had such a nice Spring day with a lot of sun. The sun actually was warming and while my two daughters were playing in the grass in our garden as they had gotten some energy after both of them have been sick during the week, I took the time and sat down in the grass and enjoyed the warm sun. It really felt like Spring is finally here!

As Spring is here we are starting to get more energy and we want to spend a little more time outside. People and families tend to drink their coffee and lemonade outside and doing nice picnics in the garden or maybe on the playground when the Spring weather is lovely.

Nutella and vanilla cream rolls are perfect for on the go rolls to bring for “fika” (as it called in Swedish :)), when you want to bring a snack with you when you are going out or when you are just taking a coffee on the porch.

Nutella and Vanilla Cream Rolls

The filling with Nutella and vanilla cream are SO delish and it’s great to have a bunch of these rolls in the freezer, cause then you have something good to serve when you have friends over. You can defrost them a little in the microwave or let them defrost on the counter for a while before serving.

Author: Jeanette
Ingredients
  • 150 grams butter
  • 2 cups milk
  • 50 grams yeast
  • 0.4 cup sugar
  • 0.5 teaspoon salt
  • 5.9 cups flour
  • 1 egg
Filling
  • 250 grams nutella
  • 1.6 cups vanilla cream
Instructions
  1. Melt the butter in a pot. Add the milk and let it be about finger heat, about 37 degrees.

  2. Crumb the yeast into a big baking bowl. Pour some of the liquid in and stir so that the yeast dissolves. Add the remaining liquid and sugar and salt.

  3. Add most of the flour. However, save a little for later so, about 0,4 cup to use when you are working with the dough on the table.

  4. Work the dough into a smooth dough. You can use a machine or just do it by hand like I usually do (as I don't have any awesome kitchen machine yet :))

  5. Knead the dough smoothly on a floured table or on the kitchen counter. Then cut it into two pieces.

  6. Roll each piece into a rectangular flat cake. You can roll so the dough is about under 1 cm thick, around 0,5 cm thick. 

  7. Use a butter knife or like a spatula for layering the Nutella. I used the whole jar of 250 grams Nutella for both pieces. Then roll both pieces into two big rolls.

  8. Cut the rolls into smaller pieces, about 2-2,5 cm thick pieces. (It's okay if some are getting thicker :)) Put the small rolls on an oven plate with baking sheets, it's a good idea to leave some space between each roll as they rise even more in the oven, so prepare two plates with baking sheets. 

  9. Now the Nutella rolls need to lay under towels again, so they can rise for 30 minutes before you do the last touches.

  10. When the rolls are resting, you can prepare the vanilla cream. NOTE: I didn't use a homemade vanilla cream for this recipe. I used a mixture that I added with milk and mixed it together. It works great whatever you choose for the vanilla cream. Put on the oven to 250 Celcius (482 F).

  11. When the 30 minutes are done it's time to do a small hole in the center of each Nutella roll, just so you have a base for your vanilla cream. Take a teaspoon and put a little vanilla cream in the center of each roll.

  12. Take the egg and whisk it into a small bowl, cause now it's time to brush each roll before they are going into the oven. I didn't brush egg on the vanilla cream, so just brush around it and on the sides.

  13. Bake one plate at a time in the middle of the oven for 7-8 minutes. After they are finished in the oven, let them cool down. 

  14. Before serving...sprinkle over some powder sugar (optional).

  • 0.4 cup milk
Filling
  • 250 grams berry mix or fresh berries
Instructions
  1. Melt the butter and let it cool down.
  2. Whisk eggs and sugar until it's fluffy in a big bowl. (I used an electric mixer)

  3. Mix wheat flour, baking soda, and powder sugar.
  4. Add half of the milk and half of the melted butter and whisk it together. And then add the rest of the milk and butter.
  5. Use a tablespoon for the batter and fill the muffin cups to 2/3. Then take a teaspoon and then put on some berries. (I used frozen berry mix which I let thaw, but you can use fresh berries as well)

  6. Bake in the middle of the oven at 200 Celsius degrees (392 F) for 15-20 minutes (it depends on your oven).

These kinds of muffins are very family friendly, cause it’s flavors that everyone usually likes. Both adults and kids, so berry muffins are always a hit!
