Feinkoch.

June 4, 2014

The other day I went home after work and I got a call. From work. And I had to urgently help with a project. So I headed home immediately and sat down before the computer – without going grocery shopping and with nothing at home. No, this is not a rant on how hard my life is and how difficult work. Not at all. I love my work but not so much when it keeps me from eating healthy. So there’s a good thing that there’s a new kid in town. And with kid I mean shop. It’s called Feinkoch and it’s a recipe grocery shop. A recipe grocery store?! What the flip is that, you might ask. Have a seat. Let me explain. It’s a shop where you choose a recipe. There are always about 10 on display and then you shop exactly the ingredients for this recipe. The exact ingredients. When you need 3 tomatoes, 20 g of parmesan cheese and 1 piece of clove, that’s exactly what you get. No waste. No missing things. It’s brilliant. I have quite the selection of recipes at home already and every single one of those were delicious.

So there I sit at home and work and there’s no way I can go recipe grocery shopping. That’s when I remembered: Feinkoch has an online shop and they deliver all over Vienna now. So I went online and within 7 mins I shopped a healthy and delicious dinner and 30 mins later I got it delivered right on my doorstep.

For all the international readers that can’t get this delivered, I’m allowed to share the great recipe I was able to cook after I finished working.

All you need is:
– 200 g Beluga lentils
– a handful of green asparagus
– 1 piece of Mozzarella
– 6 pieces of cherry tomatoes
– 3 Tbsp Balsamic vinegar
– 3 Tbsp olive oil
– a pinch of sugar
– 1 piece of clove
– a handful of basil leaves
– salt and pepper

For this healthy lentil salad recipe cook the lentils with 400 ml of water with a pinch of salt for 25 mins until they are soft. Meanwhile wash the cherry tomatoes and cut into quarters. Rip the Mozzarella into pieces. Wash the asparagus and break the ends of (if they are woody, they break just above that piece and they’re good to go!). Cut the asparagus into thirds and saute them with 1 Tbsp olive oil and the clove cut into slices for about 4 mins. Turn down the heat and remove the clove. Add half of the vinegar and sugar and cook for another 2-3 mins. Cut the basil leaves into pieces.

Rinse the lentils and put it into a bowl with the tomatoes, Mozzarella and asparagus. Add the other half of the vinegar, 2 Tbsp olive oil and half of the basil leaves. Season with some salt and pepper and serve with the other half of the basil leaves as decoration. Voilá!

Healthy and delicious. Could a girl ask for more?! Yes. Chocolate. That’s why you can order with the coupon look3x42 a chocolate tartufo set if you order online. Just put the chocolates into the shopping basket and fill in the coupon afterwards.

Happy recipe grocery shopping!

    That is such a brilliant idea. I wonder how it works out cost-wise. Then again, a no-wastage idea is great, especially for small items like a handful of grated cheese or spices.

      I have to admit it’s a little bit more expensive but with costs between € 3,- and 7,- p.P. still a pretty good deal. What I like most is that I don’t have to throw out leftovers – cooked or uncooked. With both my partner and me working fulltime we just don’t have so much time to cook but we still love to occasionaly. That’s when this service is perfect!
