This was our dinner tonight. Roasted sweet potato salad with a lot of good stuff, and I decided to served it with some nice beef and a very simple cold sauce. You could definitely have some fish or chicken with this instead of beef. It’s so easy to do and this is a perfect side dish for everything. :) Remember, I never cook too complicated food, I like it when it’s simple. ;)


2 large sweet potatoes (depends how many you cook for)
3 tablespoons olive oil
200 g feta cheese
1 dl peeled roasted hazelnuts
4 spring onion, only the green end, chopped
½ small bunch fresch parsley, chopped
sea salt
black pepper
balsamic vinegar


  1. Heat oven to 200C. Toss the sweet potato with the olive oil and some salt and pepper. Spread it on a baking tray and roast for about 30-35 min until tender.
  2. Roast the hazelnuts till they get a nice colour. Peel the nuts from the shell. I recommend to put them on a dry kitchen towel and scrub the nuts so they all get nicely peeled. Then coarsely chop the nuts.
  3. Put the spinach on a big platter, then add the roasted sweet potatoes, the chopped spring onion, feta cheese and hazelnuts. Drizzle some balsamic vinegar on top and season with sea salt/black pepper. Garnish with some parsley.


When I cook beef I usually season it with salt and pepper and then let it stand in room temperature a bit before I cook it, so it wont be cold in the middle if you want the beef a bit rare.

Then I cook it in butter and olive oil, usually I put 1-2 garlic cloves in the butter/oil just for a nice taste but today I used an olive oil with garlic taste, and it tastes the same.

So fry the beefs 2-3 min on each side for medium rare on high temp. And pour the butter/oil mix on the meat during the frying.


For a simple cold sauce I just mixed creme fraiche, cream cheese with herb/garlic flavor, olive oil with lemon flavor and salt/pepper.
