we will see....
this morning it was so cold, pure, windy and loud :D
now and then the sun came out from behind heavy grey clouds.
our lake is so beautiful in this period of the year, so clean, so blue, so "ours".
today, with the wind rather hard and cold, we were quite alone walking on the lake side.
I adore this place, couldn't live somewhere else I think.
yes, of course I miss south of Sweden where I was born, I miss the perfume of the sea, the mist, the fog,the brown and grey earth in the autumn, the cold winter days, the neverending summer nights...
but, the Garda Lake is a very, very special place.
Mung Beans and Buckwheat groat soup with leek and salvia
sorry for the long name, I didn't know what to call it :DD
this recipe comes from a very dear friend of mine, Lorenza and from her blog
Galline 2nd life (chicken 2nd life)
a love her files on vegetables and herbs, I always find so useful and interesting information.
yesterday when I saw this recipe over by hers, I thought it was perfect for the MLLA!
and it is perfect for Sofi (daughter n°4) who is vegetarian, like Lisa who is hosting this month's MLLA
so here we go.
240gr of mung beans *
240gr of buckwheat groat
2 big leeks or 4 small
2 cloves of garlic
1/2 glass of white wine
2 l of water
fresh salvia leaves
extravergin olive oil or other vegetable oil
put your mung beans in water over the night.
in a pressure cooker put some oil, one salvia leaf, the garlic and the leeks cut in fine, tiny slices
add the wine and let evaporate.
and the soaked mung beans and the buckwheat and toast lightly, mix all the time.
add the water some pepper grains and two-three salvia leaves,
close lid and when it is whistles, lower the heat and cook for 15min**
serve with olive oil, multicolored peppercorns and a salvia leaf
thank's for the recipe Lorenza, it is very very tasty!!
* Lorenza used lentils in her recipe, but I was without so I tried with mung beans! :D
** if you don't use the pressure cooker, you will need ca 25-30min.
I send this to Lisa from Lisa's kitchen
