Food in Process: pasta with zucchini and fishroulade

In previous posts, I've announced about undergoing the cavemen diet
this week, where I'm only allowed to eat veggies, fruit and protein. 
Its my 3rd day today and I have to say: its pretty tough. I miss eating
rice so badly. And cheese. And adding milk to my earl grey tea. 
But I'll continue and finish this week because one more week: 
I'm free of school!

And of course, I've made this recipe awhile ago. I wanted to
master this technique: baking fish in the oven, and maintain the tender & 
juiceness. I've drizzled some olive oil with breadcrumbs on top and 
turned the oven 175°C 40 minutes. Bad idea as I stare angrily at my
overcooked fish.
Yet still tasty because of the seasoning. I guess next time I should lower
the temperature and the time? Any tips/advice are welcome really!

Da Recipe: any kind of pasta, 1 zucchini, 500gram mushrooms, 1 chopped onions, 1 clove garlic, 250ml crème fraîche (1 cup), 30 gram roasted hazelnuts, any oil

This walnut-oil smelled really nice actually!



The still warm roasted hazlenuts adds a really nice texture! 

Da Steps:
1. Cook the pasta as usual, reserve 1 cup this hot starch water, drain and rinse with cold water. Set aside.
2. Heat a wok with oil and saute the onions and garlic. Add the zucchini and the mushroom and stir fry abit. 
3. Add the starch water and let it simmer for 5 minutes. Meanwhile, roast the hazelnuts in the oven at 180°C for 5 minutes. Once that is done wrap them in a cloth and smash them into small chunks with a heavy pan/rolling pin. 
4. Add the crème fraîche and stir fry. Add the pasta and stir fry. 
5. Serve it up on a plate and sprinkle the roasted hazelnuts on top.

Good luck!

    Ik kan echt niet zonder rijst leven haha.
    Ik wist niet dat je crème fraîche mocht eten tijdens zo'n dieet, maar blijkbaar wel:)!
    Succes met je dieet x

  2. This recipe is pretty mouth-watering though i would prefer chicken instead of fish (=^.^)°
    I guess for maximum level of good taste i would also prefer walnut oil instead of 'any oil' ;3

  5. I need to focus more on my diet too. I think cooking more and eating out less would be a great solution for me.

  6. Maybe if you put the fish on baking paper to make a "papillote" (sorry, I don't find the word in english) it will be better. It will keep the juiciness and tenderness of the fish and you can put any vegetables or anything you want in the papillote. But it looks good already.

    I don't write lots of comments on your blog but I read every post and I really like it.

  7. Oh dear, I dislike fish from the oven so much but this recipe looks quite yummehh! Maybe I should try it without the baked fish, or don't you recommend that?
    Succes met je caveman diet, het klinkt super gezond maar best wel zwaar!!

  12. Seriously, we just need to be roomies so you can cook for me. ;)

    The first week is always the hardest, but once you get past it, those carb and dairy cravings slowly fade away. I've cut down on my white carb intake drastically and seen some good results due to it. Hang in there, you can do it!!

  17. wrapping fish in tin foil or baking paper, making a pouch with the seasoning and veggies in there too works really well you'd need to staple the baking paper pouch shut but i only had foil at the time and obviously that rolls around itself and keeps its shape well. this is the recipe i tried: http://www.itv.com/lorraine/food/fragrant-salmon-parcels/

    definitely juicy fluffy fish!!

  28. Okay first of all, your pictures are divine!! You are so talented!

    And second, how's the caveman diet going? I have friends who have done it and feel great! I can't because I'm vegetarian so it would seriously limit my protein choices haha, but I've been trying to do clean eating more. We do what we can, right? :)
