At the moment, cooking is more fun than it has not been for a long time, I’m just eager to try something new. Maybe I should have chosen other weather conditions for my experiments, because standing at 32 degrees in the kitchen with apron on the stove is pretty exhausting. But unlike men who are virtually unable to serve the gas grill without a cold beer in hand, I can not chirp a cyclist in the kitchen at ten in the morning (why not, the only one who could catch me is DHL -Mann, but this one can no longer look here;)).

Food served in small bowls is incredibly appealing to me! It starts with the small plates in the sushi restaurant and stops somewhere in the Edeka at the tasting stand for a new muesli variety. That’s why I can not stop collecting bowls and bowls. Whenever I get a visit (except the DHL man), I often prepare the food in them (not least, because there is nothing scary for me than a durchgematschten salad at the grill buffet).

Chop the parsley, toast the sesame in the pan. Mix with the remaining ingredients and pour over the cooled vegetables. Season with salt, pepper and Ras el Hanout.

Fits perfectly with fish and seafood! If you have just as much mint in the garden as I do, chop it a little and set it down, it tastes really delicious (but I just remembered afterwards).
