Danish & Vegan: Brændende kærlighed

Although Denmark is pretty close to Germany it was kind of hard to find someone to cook with. I mean many people said „yes – here I am“ but then last minute they had no time anymore. That happened like 4 times in a row. I have to admit that I was a bit angry with Danish people but then – I met Fenja.

That 18 years old girl is a real sunshine and I enjoyed cooking with her so much that I forgot all those negative experiences with Danish people which I had before!😉 Actually we made a dish that´s usually served on Valentine’s Day in Denmark. It´s pretty famous and I liked the idea to veganise it which was pretty easy.

The dish is called “Brændende Kærlighed” which means „Burning Love“. It is presumably from the beginning of the 19th century – and originating from the rural areas in Denmark. Brændende Kærlighed – the original and the vegan version – is very easy and cheap to prepare and make. What I like most about it is how well the tastes of the different ingredients harmonize with each other.

Brændende kærlighed

  • 1 kg potatoes, peeled and quartered
  • about 1 cup vegan milk (I used rice milk)
  • about 350 g smoked tofu, thinly sliced (with a peeler for example)
  • 5-6 onions, chopped
  • about 300 g pickled red beets
  • 1 bunch chives or/and parsley, chopped
  • salt to taste
  • olive oil
  • optional: rye bread

Bring potatoes to a boil. Let them cook for about 20-25 min.

Drain potatoes and mash them, stir in vegan milk until the mashed potatoes is light and airy. Season with salt.

Put the mash potatoes onto a plate and make a hole in the middle. Fill it with the fryed smoked tofu and onions. Add some pickled beetroot pieces and sprinkle with chopped chives and/or parsley. Serve with rye bread if desired.
