3 Appetizer, Bento, Side dish, Snack, and Soup recipes with Almonds, Canned tomatoes, Cocoa powder, and Potato for Lactose-free, No fish , and No soy diet

German Zimtsterne (cinnamon almond cookies)

I always wanted to make these, and finally got the guts — oh boy, I wasn't really prepared for the amount of nitty-gritty with making these. I started with original German recipe that called for 500g of almonds, but that ended up being 2 full baking sheets and lots of sneaky snacking between steps ;-) But the result is good, and these cookies are worth the effort.

Vegetarian bento

Today was one of these days that my coffee needed a coffee... And I really couldn't make myself cook in the morning. So, the vegetarian bento was made! It's fast, it's simple, and it tasted great. Consider that a fancy salad for lazy days.

Tomato cream soup

Tomatoes are very healthy thanks to the lycopene, but they also taste amazing when you cook them in a cream soup with a pinch of red pepper and garlic. And herbs, croutons, bread rolls or literally anything you would ever want to put in a cream soup, it's so versatile. And because it's summer time now, you can even let it chill and serve it cold. How cool is that?
