Instinct Oven Veggies

After my decision to never eat again, some primal animal instinct took control over my body and led it into the kitchen. There it opened the fridge, completely without my consent, and grabbed a few old chorizo sausages laying way back in the darkness next to a few rotting beet-roots. The animal devoured the sausages beast-like, finding great pleasure in diving its teeth into the meat and pull the sausage apart as if it was a small, dead animal. Which I guess is more or less what a chorizo is.

After eight hours of coma, I woke up to myself again. And I couldn't wait to have some zucchini for lunch.

Instinct Oven Veggies

1 parsnip
1 red onion
1 zucchini
some cloves of garlic

red rice
some spinach leaves

Place the chopped up veggies on an oven-tray and sprinkle with olive oil, garlic salt and pepper. Heat the oven to about 180ยบ, then leave the veggies in there for ca. 30 minutes.

Boil the red rice.

for dip:
1 small avocado
2 cloves of garlic
a handful walnuts
2 table spoons olive oil
a little lemonjuice
some salt

Mix together the ingredients with a hand mixer.

Mix the rice, the veggies and the spinach in a bowl, then add a spoon of dip.


  1. lost 7 kilos now with weight watchers - am so proud of myself. Went swimming at 6.30 am the other day. I am going mad. Have sunk my teeth into the Sookie Stackhouse novels now.

  3. The dead animal of the chorizo waiting in the darkness of the fridge until yours comes alive. What impactful imagery! By the way: of what animal is a chorizo made? Is there anything like a „Chorizo“, living in the forests of Nottingham? (n.b. „Notting-Ham", hahaha)

    And if so: does the living chorizo look like a sausage?
