Happy Midsummer – and here is a cavalcade of photos! Since my 23rd birthday took place on the 23rd, and the following day coincided with the Swedish Midsummer, I took the liberty of creating my very own holiday – namely BIDSUMMER (birthday midsummer, get it?) yesterday.
The weather was gloomy here in Scotland so I turned the living room into a floral haven and set the table with veganized versions of dishes with typical midsummery flavours, such as elderflower, strawberries, dill and new potatoes.
As our main we had Vegoteket‘s dill- and lemon marinated tofu and parsley cream along with Annie/Vegokäk‘s French new potato salad with asparagus. As for dessert, I made a cake with aqua faba meringue, vegan lemon curd, coconut cream and strawberries marinated in mint, olive oil and lemon. It was D-I-V-I-N-E!
To wash it all down the mandatory nubbe of some leftover rum and licorice (Tyrkisk peber!) and elderflower cordial mixed with prosecco.
