Salt-Crusted Sea Bass

I remember when I started with Chakula, one of the first suggestions was to have some recipe for fish. Well, it took almost a year, but it is here! And it was worth it to wait for it. My friend Miha from Ljubljana is a gourmet eater, chef and food lover. He is behind a very popular Instagram account Luda kucha. It is there I see him cooking all kind of delicacies, including this recipe. I asked Miha to share his recipe, so we could all prepare it at home. Let me know how delicious it was. Preparation time: 60 minutes...

Frankly, I know that many will be delighted with this recipe. And I’m on the same mission: every traditional recipe can be made and nothing is impossible to cook. On the other hand, in our family, we all like beans. Additional value: you have lunch for at least two days. We ate this one for 3 days, it’s so good and I made it so much. The recipe is step by step, with photos, so it cannot fail. Preparation time: 30 minutes + 2 hours of cooking Ingredients: – 500 g beans – 1 potato – 1/2 carrot – 1...

And seafood is In season in May, so it’s...

Pão de quejo

Every month I’m really looking forward to the Guest Chef Recipe section. I believe that every day we follow a lot of bloggers, so when I choose a recipe I enjoy preparing it and certainly sharing my impressions. Andrea recently celebrated 10 years of her blog Cukar. And what is better as a congrats than when someone tries out your recipe. Pão de quejo is made from tapioca flour, which is gluten-free, and comes from Brazilian manioc plant. Pão de quejo I already made several times, because they are delicious and excellent as a snack. So, great for weekend gathering or watching...

Lasagna with spinach

I know that the usual, traditional lasagna is with Bolognese sauce, but I prefer lasagna with spinach. You might say that I am weird, but that’s how it is. This lasagna is easy on the stomach and is ready in 30 to 45 minutes, depending on which lasagna you use. You should check the box as it is written how much time it takes that lasagna to bake. On Instagram profile, in the stories, I showed you when I bought this buckwheat lasagna and I was really looking forward to try it. The next time I used integral...
