5 Tasty Food Recipes for Summer Menu

1. Finnish style shrimp pie

For a crust:
 1 1/2 dl instant mashed potatoes
1 1/2 dl wheat flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 1/2 water
1 1/2 melted butter

First mix dry ingredients and then add the water and melted butter. Take a pie mould and press the pastry by fingers to cover the bottom.


2 dl shrimps
1/2 red paprika
1 spring onion
1dl feta cheese
 1dl edam cheese

Egg milk:

2 dl milk or cream
2 eggs
black pepper

Place the fillings evenly on the pastry, putting both cheeses last. Mix milk and eggs and pepper together and pour on top of.  Bake in the oven in 200 Celsius degrees for 20 minutes.

2. Veggie and mushroom filo pastry rolls

You will need:

1/2 a package of filo pastry and melted butter

Veggies like,
Chinese cabbage
spring onion
ginger (use just a pinch)

Mushroom mix, I used Finnish forest mushrooms but you can use for example champignons. 

To spice the veggie mix you will need soy sauce, black pepper, vinegar, pinch of sugar and salt if needed.

Mince all the veggies and sweat on the pan in vegetarian oil. Sweat also Chinese cabbage and mushrooms.

Put all to one bowl and spice with soy sauce, sugar, vinegar and black pepper. Cut filo pastry to smaller squares. Put a little bit of filling on the pastry, roll and fold the ends and roll. Butter the rolls and bake in the oven in 225 Celsius degrees till the rolls have gotten nice golden color.

 3. Quinoa salad

You will need:

cooked quinoa
cherry tomatoes
spring onion
fresh ginger (a pinch)
vegetarian oil, lemon juice
salt and black pepper

Chop the veggies. Mix all the ingredients together.

4. Finnish Hölsky (shaked) salad

This salad is easy to mix. You just chop and mince all ingredients, collect them to a cup with a cover and shake. In this salad I have mixed cherry tomatoes and spring onion with a 1/2 teaspoon of vinegar and just a pinch of salt, sugar and black pepper.

5. Veggie burger beef recipe

For the vegetarian beef:

2 eggs
a slice of white bread
2 red onions
1/2 red paprika
2 tsp cumin
4 garlic cloves
fresh ginger
6 carrots
4 small potatoes
salt and black pepper

Break the eggs and add a slice of crumbled white bread, let the bread swallow in the eggs. Cook the carrots and potatoes al dente. Sweat minced red onions, paprika and cumin in a pan. Put carrots, potatoes, onions and paprika in a bowl and blend with a mixer. Spice with fresh garlic, ginger and basil + salt and black pepper. 

Put some vegetarian oil to a frying pan and heat. Lift small amounts of beef pastry to the pan and form these lumps to beefs with a spatula while frying.

Serve with hamburger buns, coleslaw, smoked cheese and lettuce. 

What kind of food do you like to cook in the summer time? Do you prefer fresh salads or are you after grilled goods?
