Spicy Recipes for the Summer Heat

Hello! It is time again to share some simple and quick cooking recipes. This time summer heat has inspired me to cook spicy and colorful food. I have made these recipes lacto-vegetarian but you can leave the cheese out if you like.

1. Vegetarian tortilla


Vegetarian sauce:

2 big spring onions
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp smoked paprika
1/2 tsp chili
400g chopped tomatoes (= one can)
2 tbsp tomato puree
1 tbsp chipotle sauce
2 garlic cloves
1 tsp oregano
400g green lentils (=one can)
black pepper
salt
vegetarian oil

Mince onions and sweat in vegetarian oil with cumin, smoked paprika and chili. Add chopped tomatoes, tomato puree, chipotle, minced garlic and oregano. When the sauce is boiling add green lentils. Let the sauce stew in mild temperature and add salt and pepper if needed.

Serve with:
tortilla
and fresh vegetables like
salad
paprika
cucumber
tomatoes

2. Potato salad


Potato salad

4 boiled potatoes
1 garlic clove
1 spring onion
1 dl green peas
1 1/2 dl sour cream

Split paprika and remove the seeds. Put in the stuffing and crust with smoked cheese. Put in the preheated oven 200 Celsius degrees for 30 min.
