Retiring ‘SindrElf’s monthly Geeky Recipe’

sindrelfs monthly geeky recipe food

Between October 2017 and October 2018, I posted one recipe based on something from pop-culture each month.

I have now decided to stop.

 

While I may still upload new geeky recipes every now and then, I will no longer have a schedule for posting them.

The schedule was responsible for a few of the better dishes, but also for the worst ones.

 

Underneath you will find links to all thirteen recipes.

Happy reading 🙂

I decided to make a mixed drink for this month’s geeky recipe, and it is naturally Halloween themed.

It is a slight variation on a mojito, with extra lime and mint leaves, topped with a frozen “brain” containing water and blackcurrant juice.

 

For a single glass, you’ll need to mix:

4 centilitres of lime juice

6 centilitres of soda water

7 centilitres of white rum

1 whole pot of chopped up mint leaves

3 topped teaspoons of sugar

1 dash of bitters

1 ice-cube containing blackcurrant juice, frozen in a brain mold

 

And there you go, brain freeze in a glass!

Vegan Vampire Soup

Vegan Vampire Soup

We are quickly closing in on the month of Halloween, and I wanted to reflect that in this month’s geeky recipe.

The result is a beety bloodbath of a dish, a feast fit for any vegetarian vampire, werewolf or cannibal.

The Recipe

(Serves 2 monsters)

1. Boil two large beets for 15 minutes, or just buy boiled beets.

2. Cut a small piece off each beet, so that they are flat on the underside, and can stand still on a surface.

3. Use a knife and a spoon to scoop out each beet into a bowl.

4. Take the pieces you cut off from the undersides and insides of beetbowls, and slice them into pieces. They should look like gory meat chunks.

5. Set aside two tablespoons of diced beets, and put the rest in a small pot.

6. Add 1,5 deciliters of water and a half tablespoon of vegetable bouillon powder.

7. Bring it to a boil, then mix it all together with a hand-held blender.

8. Adjust the taste with salt, pepper and a small squeeze of lime.

9. Serve the soup in the beety bowls, and decorate with the diced beet chunks you put aside earlier.

10. Watch out for vampires!
