Patatas bravas are fried potato dices served with salsa brava, a spicy tomato sauce. And every bar in Spain has them. So when your house is the place to serve tapas, better still to prepare this delicious home-made bravas. I prepare them for my friend’s Elena surprise birthday party. I also prepared this tequeños and easy and delicious sandwichs.
Always when I go out for tapas, we order patatas bravas. Sometimes they are really dissapointing, but sometimes they turn out to be spectacular. That’s when you know your coming back to the bar. Believe me, if you make them right your a winner!! So here is my version of a winning recipe!!

You only need 10 minutes to make your own home-made butter!
Sandwich de verduras ecológicas asadas en pan casero, guacamole con yogurt de cabra y un toque de mantequilla.
To make butter at home, you need the help of your KitchenAid. You can afterwards, add salt to it, fresh herbs, garlic, whatever you want!! And with the remaining Buttermilk, delicious breads and muffins, yogurts or fresh cheese. So it’s definitely worth it. You only need a good quality cream with at least 35% fat content (if it has less it won’t work), salt and any other herb that you’d like to add!
Beat the cream at high speed until the liquid part separates from the solid fat.The liquid will spill out of the beater, so be sure to cover well to avoid getting a mess of your kitchen!
What happens here with the mixing is that the fat globules are damaged and their fat leaks out and comes together into masses that are large enough to gather.
Collect, with help of a sieve, the Buttermilk. Buttermilk is a fermented milk with a population of Lactobacilus bacteria, and it is used for cheese, yogurt making, breads and muffins, providing great flavour and tenderness to the cakes.
Wash well the butter removing all the butter milk. The more buttermilk it has, the less it will last.
With help of a wooden spoon start kneading the butter, and removing any excess of buttermilk. Add the salt or herbs here, and collect all the butter into a mold or the recipient you’d like to use. I made a salty one, and another one with lemon thyme (smelled delicious). For the thyme butter, I wrapped it in film and shaped it with my hands and afterwards placed it in the freezer for about one hour. After that I cut it into slices and it looked really nice and elegant.
And that’s it!!! Home-made butter. And with a good bread, you are the closest to heaven.

The other day I found soybeans in an ecological market, bought them and decided to prepare home-made soy milk. I had seen already that it was not complicated, and in fact it isn’t. The steps to follow are basically 6: soak the soy beans, squeeze them a bit and take away some of the skins, warm-up, blend, boil and strain.
The next step is making my own Tofu. I have to go and buy the nigiri (coagulant) and maybe see if I can get a mould and in the next days I’m going ot make! But for now, home-made soy milk recipe.

I declare myself an absolut fan of cous-cous. And of arab food. And since it had been a while since I didn’t eat, this past week I’ve had it more than twice. Last week with my dad, I prepared this delicious cous-cous and grilled aubergines with Tzatziki sauce. Yesterday I made the cous-cous again for my friends and again sucess!
It’s such a simple salad to make, with a different taste and aroma of what we’re used to having. And the aubergines are the perfect side-dish with the salad. The Tzatziki sauce, usually used in Kebabs, matches amazing with vegetables as well, it enhances a simple salad if you use it as dressing as well. So here you go, three easy, delicious vegetarian recipes with the taste of a different culture.
