Lentils with an Egg Hat

Lentils with an Egg Hat

In the Czech Republic, many restaurants stay open until the wee hours of the morning after the changing of the New Year, but offer a limited menu. The offering usually includes a lentils dish, since lentils represent luck and wealth. Like a breakfast hash, the lentil portion can be made the day before and quickly reheated and topped with a freshly cooked egg. The recipe below includes small diced ham with vegetables and herbs. It can easily be made vegetarian with just a couple changes.

Celeriac and Celery Soup

Celeriac and Celery Soup

When I married my Czech hubby, I was introduced to some new foods. One of which was celery root (aka celeriac). This is a rather ugly looking root vegetable, but the flavor is delightful! I came up with this fairly light soup that includes both celery root and celery stalks. The root helps thicken the soup so that I need only use milk to give it creaminess. For me, it’s the ultimate in comfort food, and yet it can be a rather elegant start to many nice meals.

Sassy Sauce

Sassy Sauce

This is a recipe I recently created to smear on my burger. But then I realized how amazing it also tastes on chicken, salmon, pork chops, cauliflower, broccoli, bell peppers, etc.

Quick-Pickled Beet Stems

Quick-Pickled Beet Stems

This recipe helps eliminate food waste (since most people discard the beetroot’s stems) while also creating a uniquely tasty and simple side-dish filled with flavors and nutrients. It’s a total win! This dish is a unique family recipe that my grandpa (who lived until he was 100 years old) absolutely adored!

Tomato-cucumber salad

Tomato-cucumber salad

All summer long my family absolutely loves a simple salad of thin sliced tomatoes and cucumbers, because is fresh and pretty much can be eaten with any dish. But if you are busy person as I am, I am sure you don’t have time to make this salad everyday.
This is a trick that i discovered if you want to “meal-prep” when you have a few extra minutes that tastes really good.
