Happy Easter everyone! I hope you all are having a cosy day with family today. Today’s post is all about how I spent my Easter day. More specific, my lunch. We had some very delicious and original food. I looked up some of the recipes and together with both my mom and dad we created them. It was very fun to do! Let’s take a look!
Decorations and drinks
I really liked this recipe because it is so original. We had some asparagus with poached quail eggs and a hollandaise sauce. I don’t know if this word has an English translation, haha. For decorations, we added some orange fish eggs and parsley.
First off, peel the asparagus and cook them quite well. While this is cooking, crack the quail eggs in little bowls and put them in hot water, but make sure it isn’t boiling. While stirring the water, put in a quail egg. You have to poach them one at a time.
For the hollandaisesauce, look up a recipe online because I let my mom make this thing (oops, guilty!). When everything is cooked, you can make up the plates. Add some asparagus to your own taste and put over two spoons of the sauce. After that, put a little bit of the fish eggs on top and some parsley on the side. The poached eggs go round the asparagus.
Let’s enjoy some foodporn!
For starters, we went with some courgette soup. My mom made this so I can’t give you the instructions.
But let’s enjoy the pretty pictures, right?
For some extra taste, we added whipped cream and some strokes of salmon.
This one is also a very original one! We made avocado’s filled with an egg and bacon. First, cut up the avocado’s and carve out the filling so there is a little hole. Next up, put the egg yoke into this hole. Cut up some bacon and lay them over the egg and avocado. Finish off with some chilipowder to add taste.
To avoid any waste, my mom made some guacamole from the filling of the avocado. She added onion, garlic and olive oil and mixed this up.
Time for something sweet. We chose a duo of panna cotta and chocolate mousse. I am not going to explain how you make this because it is quite a staple dish to make, so if you want to know how the make this, just look it up online or in a cookbook. We made the panna cotta look like it is an egg. We did this by making a mangocoulis. We mashed up a mango combined with some powder sugar and 3 spoons of water.
That’s it! Simple right?
That was it for today everyone! I hope you enjoyed reading this and loved the recipes! Let me know in the comments what you did for Easter because I would love to know!
See you next time!
