Countdown to Midsummer (part 1)

We are only four days away from Swedish Midsummer, probably the most typically Swedish tradition of all. It’s a holiday devoted to eating, drinking and dancing (preferably around a midsummer or maypole decorated in branches and flowers). Anyhow, it’s time to start planning this year’s celebration. It’s common to have many dishes on the table that you can pick and choose from – a smorgardsbord of delicious goodies. Sounds complicated? Don’t worry, we will help you out. Here are two tasty and anti-inflammatory recipes for Midsummer’s Eve.

Asparagus Salad with Freshly Dug Potatoes and Strawberries

10 potatoes
5 spring onions
6 asparagus
10 radishes
a handful sugar snaps

0.5 cup olive oil
a handful fresh basil
a handful fresh parsley

Cook the potatoes and let them cool for a while. Finely chop the spring onions, then slice asparagus, radishes, sugar snaps and strawberries. Chop basil and parsley, and mix with the olive oil. Toss together all the ingredients in a large bowl and stir well to coat evenly with dressing.


Veggie Skewers With Lemon Garlic Marinade

1 eggplant
2 bell peppers
half a cauliflower head

0.5 cup olive oil
2 cloves of garlic
juice from 1/2 lemon
a handful fresh parsley
a handful fresh basil

Cut eggplant, bell pepper and cauliflower into chunks and put on skewers. Finely chop basil, parsley and garlic, and mix with the olive oil. Pour the marinade over the skewers, then sprinkle with salt and chili flakes. Place the skewers on the grill or bake in the oven at a low temperature.
