Salad Dressing

September 20, 2012 Leave a comment

This week I’ve been to my favourite place to have lunch with a friend. They serve salad with an awesome dressing there. So we asked the waitress if she could tell us about the ingredients. She was so kind to even write it down for us. 🙂
ingredients from top to bottom:
vegetable oil (sunflower), olive oil, walnut oil, white balsamic vinegar, dark balsamic vinegar, tomato puree, mustard, honey, sugar, herbs (dried)

The first try failed completely but I gave it another shot. It didn’t taste quite like in the restaurant yet but I’ll definitely keep trying.

Day 2 after Fasting

After a fast it is very important to begin eating sensibly because the digestive system is kind of asleep and has to be woken up slowly. Here’s my food of the 2nd day after fasting.

Breakfast was a Latte Macchiato, a glass of pineapple juice and crispbread with low fat curd cheese and honey.

Todays lunch was my favorite. If you’ve been on my blog before you know already that I really love salad. 🙂
Ingredients: 1/2 iceberg lettuce, 1 tomato, 1/3 cucumber, 1 carrot, 75g plain yogurt, dried herbs, fresh parsley and chives

Dinner was not that spectacular, but I think it looks kinda nice. It’s crispbread with low fat curd cheese mixed with fresh parsley and chives, and some cherry tomatoes on top. I have to try out some other fresh herbs to spice up the taste a bit though.

Baking Bread Rolls

February 26, 2012 2 comments

sponge ingredients: 10g yeast, 135ml lukewarm water, 90g whole wheat flour, 60g wheat flour (type 405, click here for more information about flour types)
I dissolved the yeast in the water, added the flour and let my kitchen machine knead it. Then I covered the sponge and let it rest for 30 minutes.

After that I added 1,5 tsp of honey, 350g wheat flour (type 550) and mixed it with 150ml of water. While kneading I added 1,5 tsp of salt and 20g softened butter. I let the kitchen machine knead a smooth dough that comes away from the bowl. Then I formed the dough to a ball, covered it with a tea towel and let it rest for 20 minutes.
The dough is enough to make 10 bread rolls. I weighed the dough on my kitchen scales to find out how much each dough piece should weigh. Then I cut dough pieces with a knife and weighed them one by one to get equal pieces. I placed them on a floured surface, covered them and let them rest for 10 minutes.
The next step took me quite some time since I’ve never made bread rolls before. I took a piece of dough and rolled a ball. While rolling the ball I pinched the dough together on the bottom side. I rolled the dough on the board until it was completely smooth from all sides.
I placed the bread rolls on a baking tray and let them rest for another 30-40 minutes. Meanwhile I preheated the oven to 250° C and placed a bowl of water in the oven to develop steam.
Before putting them in the oven I cut them on the up side. After 10 minutes baking I reduced the temperature to 200° C and let them bake for another 8-10 minutes. I put a sheet of baking paper on top of them because they were already kinda brown, I did not want to burn them. 😉
