In collaboration with Villeroy & Boch, we have cooked up a green dinner menu with fresh ingredients. Hopefully, this can inspire you to incorporate some more green dishes into your next dinner party and to invite friends and family for a delicious meal. We were so lucky to receive items from Villeroy & Boch' new collection Manufacture, which is a high-quality series of glass, ceramic and cutlery. They also have matching accessories like vases and tealight holders.
Did you know that Villeroy & Boch started up in 1748? And they're still as popular as ever.
We thought we would share the recipes with you that we served with the elegant and edgy items from Villeroy & Boch. The cutlery has a soft rose color, and the ceramics are eggwhite with detailed surfaces.
Asparagus beans with sea salt & olive oil
Steam the beans and add salt and a drizzle of olive oil
Marinated kale salad with white beans
Rinse the kale and remove the stems. Tear the large leaves into smaller pieces, and add them to a bowl. Add some salt and olive oil and begin to massage the kale with your hands. This really helps make the kale taste better and become easier to digest. Massage until you can feel the leaves become softer. Rinse and add the beans.
Chickpea wrap with beet hummus & eggplant
2 cans of chickpeas
For the chickpea wrap: mix together 2 dl chickpea flour with 3 dl water. Set the mix sit for 20 minutes. Heat a pan with olive oil and fry the pancakes until they are brown on each side.
For the beetroot hummus: peel the beets, slice them and bake them in the oven for about 40 minutes. Rinse the chickpeas and add them in a bowl. Add 2-3 tbs of olive oil, a lemon squeeze and the spices you want. Add the beetroot slices and make a fine hummus with a food processor or hand mixer.
For the eggplant: slice them and bake them in the oven or steam them. Add everything into the wrap and add lots of fresh basil on top.
Romaine salad with mango sauce
2 tbs lime juice
1/2 tsp turmeric
Rinse the salad and break it into small pieces. Mix together the ingredients and blend until smooth with a food processor or hand mixer. Drizzle the sauce over the romaine for a fresh tasting salad.

60 gram pine nuts
1 fresh basil plant
