My Top Cosy Recipes

Here are my top recipe picks to successfully create that Friday cosy feeling, a Swedish tradition known as fredagsmys!

  1. Creamy salmon and butter bean stroganoff

Here a compromise was made with a classic stroganoff by switching beef for salmon (it can easily be served without) and adding some leeks that are charred to a rich jammy sweetness to the sauce. The butter beans add an extra rich creaminess.

  1. Spinach and yellow pea dal

A dish I often resort to is dal. Comforting, warming and gives you all round feel good factor. It's really hard to beat a bowl of it. This one uses Swedish yellow peas which are similar size and shape as a chickpea (it's what a split yellow pea looks like before it's split).

  1. Shepherdless pie

A meat free version of one of my all time favourite British dishes. The trick to this dish is placing a smoky tea bag in with the puy lentils, giving them an even richer quality. Add a handful of mushrooms and a generous spoonful of marmite and this vegan dish rivals any traditional Shepherd's pie.

  1. Pear and gingerbread pie

A more grown-up gingerbread, with its robust rye and wholewheat spelt flour and generous helping of spices, but the sweetness of the ice cream and pears balances it out.
