My light & tasty start into 2017

Hey everybody, it took me a while to get started since there has not been to much activity towards the end of last year. I think it is the same every January when one is trying to fulfill all the healthy purposes for the new year. I mean there is nothing wrong since we enjoy christmas and all the great food and treats that come up with it so we try to get a healthy start. Simple eating greens is just not enough for me, so I came up with this light and tasty recipe to ease your conscience without craving for deliciousness.

the combination

It is not quite spring and so seasonal veggies and fruits still have the taste of winter. Nevertheless we can still cook the easy and light way to make us feel spring from inside. I simply roasted some sweet potato with a little nut flavor, cinnamon and hot chili. This got accompanied by some pickled carrots and tangerine. To add some sauce to the whole thing, I skipped butter and cream to replace it by the yolk that would be a left over of the soufflé. All together a great rich yet light dish wich opens up the door to the next season.
