Zucchini Pasta

I love to spend free days in Italy. It’s so close, there is mostly warm and sunny weather and the food…! The Italians really now how good food is made. So I love to make pasta and other Italian dishes at home – it always feels a little bit like holidays. And if time permits, i make the pasta by myself. For my zucchini pasta, I just put some zucchini noodles (also called zoodles) to the homemade spelt pasta and top it with some smooth parsley and grated parmesan or even better grated pecorino cheese. If you also like to go with homemade pasta, head over to the „Authentic Italian Pasta“ post to learn how it’s made. INGREDIENTS: pasta, spiralized yellow zucchini noodles, smooth parsley, parmesan or pecorino cheese, olive oil, sea salt

Zucchini Blossom Salad

Zucchini blossoms are not just beautiful they are super savory and there are multiple ways to prepare them. This time I went for a simple one: in the oven with a little bit of olive oil and sea salt. But for a rich and healthy salad you need more than just zucchini blossoms. I love to combine some warm veggies withe raw one. So beside the zucchini blossoms I baked as well the beetroot and the radishes and putted a poached egg on top of the salad. INGREDIENTS: Avocado, zucchini blossoms baked with olive oil and sea salt, beetroot backed, radish backed, poached egg, radish sprouts, raw kale, lollo salad, spring onion, lemon olive oil, cider vinegar, sea salt.
