Roasted sweet potato salad with feta cheese

JEN'S DELICIOUS LIFE

This was our dinner tonight. Roasted sweet potato salad with a lot of good stuff, and I decided to served it with some nice beef and a very simple cold sauce. You could definitely have some fish or chicken with this instead of beef. It’s so easy to do and this is a perfect side dish for everything. :) Remember, I never cook too complicated food, I like it when it’s simple. ;)

 

YOU NEED: 

2 large sweet potatoes (depends how many you cook for)
3 tablespoons olive oil
Spinach
200 g feta cheese
1 cup peeled roasted hazelnuts
4 spring onion, only the green end, chopped
½ small bunch fresch parsley, chopped
sea salt
black pepper
balsamic vinegar

DO THIS: 

  1. Heat oven to 200C. Toss the sweet potato with the olive oil and some salt and pepper. Spread it on a baking tray and roast for about 30-35 min until tender.
  2. Roast the hazelnuts till they get a nice colour. Peel the nuts from the shell. I recommend to put them on a dry kitchen towel and scrub the nuts so they all get nicely peeled. Then coarsely chop the nuts.
  3. Put the spinach on a big platter, then add the roasted sweet potatoes, the chopped spring onion, feta cheese and hazelnuts. Drizzle some balsamic vinegar on top and season with sea salt/black pepper. Garnish with some parsley.

FOR THE BEEF: 

When I cook beef I usually season it with salt and pepper and then let it stand in room temperature a bit before I cook it, so it wont be cold in the middle if you want the beef a bit rare.

Then I cook it in butter and olive oil, usually I put 1-2 garlic cloves in the butter/oil just for a nice taste but today I used an olive oil with garlic taste, and it tastes the same.

So fry the beefs 2-3 min on each side for medium rare on high temp. And pour the butter/oil mix on the meat during the frying.

COLD SAUCE: 

For a simple cold sauce I just mixed creme fraiche, cream cheese with herb/garlic flavor, olive oil with lemon flavor and salt/pepper.

 

ENJOY!!!

Thank you Cyril for this awesome party, it’s gonna be a true memory in my life. <3 I got to meet so many top models, celebs and so fun people at this party. It was quite weird to mingle around with Lewis Hamilton, Bianca Balti, Irina Shayk, Doutzen Kroes, Barbara Palvin, Lucky Blue, Chris Brown and yes it can just go on haha. And it was so nice to get to chat and meet Lewis and Bianca again as we been working together before and also the make up/hair/stylist team, and they are such nice people, so kind and I loved to work with them.

And I want to say Thank you to @wearitmyway @Isabellebanham @Thearchshow @Haleycamille for letting me have this beautiful dress. The designer is Eleanore couture.

FRIED RICE WITH CHICKEN

JEN'S DELICIOUS LIFE

 

I usually never cook Thai food, but sometimes I get my cravings and I miss my moms food a lot. I’m not as good as her, but I will be soon haha. I just need to do it more often, and it is actually my favorite food, real thai food, not ‘european thai food’ as I call it.

One of my favorite place to go here in Iceland if I’m craving for real thai food, is Noodle station. I just love it. Otherwise I haven’t found any good thai restaurants here yet, but I’m still looking!

And you can find all the soy sauces in a regular supermarket, but you also have one Thai supermarket near Hlemmur in town. :)

 

YOU NEED:
4 servings

3 cups jasmine rice (the best is to use ‘left over rice’, not newly boild rice)
500g of chicken filé
white pepper
3 tablespoon of oil (not olive oil)
1/2 onion
2 garlic cloves, chopped
3 tablespoons oyster sauce
2 tablespoon of mushroom soy sauce
2 teaspoon of fish soy sauce

Vegetables, you can choose what you want in your wok, and as you can see in my picture I had:
carrot
red paprika
1 red chilli
mushrooms
broccoli
snow peas
zucchini

4 large eggs
freshly squeezed lime juice
fresh coriander

DO THIS: 

  1. Cook jasmine rice according to directions on package and let the rice cool. (OR use ‘left over rice’)
  2. Cut the chicken and all the vegetable into pieces, including the onion.
  3. Heat a wok or frying pan with cooking oil.
  4. Fry the chicken, season it with white pepper and fry until it gets a nice colour.
  5. Add the garlic and the onion and fry everything together. (Be careful so you don’t burn the garlic)
  6. Pour the soy sauces into the pan and mix.
  7. Then add all the vegetables, remember to have high heat and stir constantly until the vegetables begin to soften a little but still retains some crispness. Push the vegetables a bit to the side and add the rice.
  8. Mix everything and make sure the pan is still really hot.
  9. Add the eggs, one at a time, mix it out properly in the rice. Taste and see if you need more soy sauce.
  10. Season with lime juice and garnish with fresh chopped coriander and roasted cashew nuts.
  11. Serve immediately with soy sauce or sweet chilli sauce.

This place was so beautiful, charming and I’ve wouldn’t mind to stay there longer. We had this villa four 4 days, and it’s located in Antibes, just 15 min from Cannes. We had 5 different photoshoots here, so the weekend was really busy. A lot of models, photographers and camera men was running around all over this place haha.

I’m gonna share this awesome song with you guys, it’s our Cannes 2016 song, it’s on repeat here at the moment.

Listen, enjoy and dream about a paradise with palm trees, white beaches and blue water. <3
