STYRIAN SCARLET RUNNER BEAN SALAD

Here comes another of my absolute favorite salads when I visit a “Heuriger”: the Styrian Scarlet Runner Bean Salad. With Styrian scarlet runner beans I especially like that their beautiful purple shells are a little harder than other beans, but the inside is even more soft and delicate.

ON PEELING POTATOES (+ ROASTED POTATOES AND BEETROOT RECIPE)

In my posting about parsley potatoes, I’ve already complained about peeling potatoes. Potatoes are so important in the Austrian kitchen, nevertheless I myself often prefer pasta or rice as a side dish, because you simply do not need to peel them.

I don’t know why, but I always get hiccups when eating such dry potatoes. Haha, does someone else have this problem too? 😉 The parsley potatoes of my grandma taste quite different […]
