Vegetarian Sushi in Odense: Bluefin, Odense

When I moved to Odense in 2008 for my higher studies, it was very tough to find a place to get some vegetarian food. I struggled very much, and as I hated to cook at that time, I started to lose weight. Seriously.. But that wasn’t a serious issue 😉 I remeber, that people often said that Copenhagen and Aarhus were better places for vegetarians. As Odense has never been a town I “admire”, I didn’t do much of learning the town nor get friends there. It was mostly during the last years of my studies, that I got some tamil friends in Odense, started to go more out etc. It was also in the recent years that many restaurants started to do something for vegetarians, and vegetarian/vegan places started running. There are several places in Odense I know love to visit, and I’ll be posting some posts about those places, starting with the Bluefin today 😀

Bluefin Restaurant is a sushi restaurant located in Odense, on Klaregade 7. Last year, in 2017, it was ranked as the 3rd best sushi restaurant in Odense, right after Goma and Umashi. I haven’t tried these 2, but I like the vegetarian sushi in Bluefin very much. I have been there twice, where the staff and service during my first visit were appreciable and I got exactly what I wanted – vegetarian sushi 🍱🌱

The place is very nice. Located in the town of Odense, the restaurant is quite busy, but still pleasant. Very neat, beautifully decorated in a neat style and with a very cozy atmosphere. Continue reading “Vegetarian Sushi in Odense: Bluefin, Odense”

Paneer Pakora

Paneer pakora is an North Indian snack, and I’ve seen that many Indian restaurants in Europe serve them as starters. I tasted some in Odense, and wanted to make them by myself.

This recipe is for about 15-20 cubes of paneer (approx. 2 x 2 cm) Continue reading “Paneer Pakora”

Sponge Cake à la Danish Hindbærsnitte

Hindbærsnitte is a Danish pastry with raspberry jam. One of my colleagues made a sponge cake in hindbærsnitte-style, and it was so yummy. I later found the recipe, and made my own vegetarian version – which means this cake is eggless 😉

Servings: 15-20 pieces

Note: This take some time! 😛

Ingredients:

The crisp dough:

  • 300 g wheat flour
  • 200 g butter (cold)
  • 25 g sugar

Sponge cake:

Glaze:

  • 150 powdered sugar

Easy Paneer Masala with veggies

Paneer Masala (the curry in the middle) is one of my fave north indian dishes, along with baingan bartha. Paneer is so yummy when in a creamy sauce. Here is mine version of it, and it’s VERY easy! 😃 Normally it’s made with a cashew paste, where the cashews are soaked in water. I recently bought some roasted cashews from Dubai, so I went with these to give it a try – without having them soaked in water. And this was actually good too.
