Warm Butter Bean Salad with Baked Bell Peppers and Green Beans (Lun smørbønnesalat med bagte peberfrugter og grønne bønner)




This recipe was found on Mad og Bolig 

200 g dried butter beans
3 red bell peppers
400 g green beans
6 anchovy filets in oil
1 bundle basil
Salt and pepper

Garlic dressing:
3 tbsp EVOO
3 tbsp white wine vinegar
1 clove garlic

Place the beans in a large bowl with cold water and let them soften overnight in the refrigerator. Strain and rinse until the water turns clear. Boil the means until tender in a liberal amount of lightly salted water. Season them as they cook, and remove from heat when they are tender inside, but not overly cooked. Keep the beans covered with boiling water the entire time they cook. Strain in a sieve.

Mix oil, vinegar, and minced garlic together and blend the dressing with the warm beans.

Heat oven to 250 C. Brush the peppers with a bit of oil and bake them for ca 15 minutes, or until the skins are nearly black. Turn while they cook, so the skin blackens all the way around. Place them in a freezer bag and let them cool off. Carefully remove the skins, rinse the seeds out, and cut into thin strips.

Trim the ends off of the beans, and boil in lightly salted water for 3-4 minutes, or until tender with a bit of bite remaining. Cut the anchovies into thin strips.

Roughly chop the basil. Blend peppers, anchovies, and basil with the beans. Season to taste with salt and more wine vinegar. Serve as a side dish with a protein of your choice or as a main dish with bread on the side.

Salad with Peaches, Water Cress, and Redcurrant (Salat med fersken, brøndkarse og ribs )

Salad with Peaches, Water Cress, and Rosehips


This recipe was found on Gastro as part of their “Get 4 Delicious Recipes From River Cottage” series

Serves 4

75 g almonds without the skin
2 ripe peaches or nectarines
A bit of sunflower seed oil and a pat of butter (if the peaches are to be fried)
4 large handfuls of water cress or arugula
50 g redcurrants or blueberries
Sea salt and freshly-ground black pepper

3 tbsp EVOO
1 tbsp lemon juice
1/4 tsp honey

Toast the almonds until they have golden spots. Shake while toasting in the dry pan, so they don’t burn. Let cool on a plate.

If the peaches are completely ripe, you can just halve them and remove the stones, then cut into 5-6 wedges. If they aren’t completely ripe, it’s a good idea to fry them a bit first. Head a bit of sunflower seed oil and a little pat of butter in a pan on low to medium heat. Lay the peach wedges in, and lightly fry them for a minute or two on each side, or until tender. Remove from the pan, and let cool, until warm or room-temperature.

Place the ingredients for the dressing in a small jam glass along with a bit of salt and pepper, put the lid on, and shake until thick- or mix well in a small container.

Spread the water cress out on a large serving dish. Arrange the peach slices atop the leaves. Sprinkle the toasted almonds over, followed by the redcurrants.

If you’ve fried the peaches, you can deglaze the pan with a bit of the dressing, scrap the remains of the pan’s bottom with a spatula and pour the mixture over the salad. Drizzle the dressing over the salad, until you think it’s gotten enough. Give the salad a little extra sprinkle of pepper, and serve.
