An updated version of the classic Vegetable stew recipe or "Menestra de verduras". In this recipe, I have used a selection of typical vegetables from the Spanish garden, such as courgette, broad beans, asparagus, artichokes or fresh beans, to create a delicious blend of flavours and textures that will delight your taste buds
3. How to Make Marinated Olives: A Simple Recipe with Big Flavor
An attractive and tasty appetiser from simple olives. I have prepared two recipes for marinated olives, one for black and one for green olives, using typical Spanish ingredients such as garlic, bay leaf, paprika or oregano.
4. Andalusian "Sopa Perota" Recipe: Traditional soup with fresh ingredients and authentic flavours
A special vegan soup you've likely never heard of or tasted. This recipe is quick, easy, and inexpensive; you only need a selection of garden vegetables and hard bread from the day before as the original recipe.
5. Thistle with Almonds, a Christmas meal you may not know about
This vegan stew, made with thistle, almonds and other vegetables from the garden, is typical in many parts of Spain, especially in Aragon, Rioja and Navarra.
6. Raspberry Gazpacho recipe, a flavorful twist on a classic dish
This chilled soup bursts with sweet and tangy flavours, making it the perfect way to enjoy summer fruits. Quick and easy to make, it's a great appetizer or light meal.
7. Quick Pickling Vegetable Skewers
I've put a spin on the classic Spanish pickled vegetable skewer "Banderilla," using a part of broccoli almost no one uses, the stems.
8. Red Cabbage and Pecan salad
Unique and vibrant winter salad combines the sweetness of red cabbage, the freshness of carrots, and the crunchy texture of pecan nuts and pomegranate seeds.
9. How to make one of the oldest Spanish recipes. Almond Soup with Garlic and Grapes.“Ajo Blanco con Uvas”
It is considered the firstborn of the Andalusian gazpacho since it is based on bread, oil, and garlic. Almonds, salt, and vinegar are usually added as other ingredients depending on the region.
10. Sautéed Wild Mushroom with Fried Sage
These sautéed mushrooms with fried sage achieve just that, blending the traditional essence of Spanish cuisine with a distinctive touch that evokes the tranquillity of a forest.
