January Food

The month for comfort food. The month after holidays. The month to start a new year. It’s hard to say that it was a mere month for me: with only two weeks spent at home, I cooked a less but still had a chance to try few new recipes.
01.01. Savory winter bowl
We fell in love with all kinds of bowls. I cooked one more time Savory Winter Bowl, based on the same recipe which I prepared in December.

Almost oriental pasta with sweet green peas, beef, and mushrooms was also one of the new recipes. I do not recall what was the source of inspiration though I will enjoy cooking this one more time

And I did my favorite “orange” fish with tomatoes, carrots, onions and dozen of herbs and spices. My mom cooked almost the same dish for me in childhood.

Notable that I cooked more porridge this month. First, I always wanted to cook this baked vegan oatmeal.
01.25. Baked Coconut Oatmeal
And almost at the end of the month, I found this awesome recipe. I did original version with apples.
