Birthday Party

I had birthday last week and I threw a party on Friday. Friends came to our house and I served potato salad, cabbage salad, rye bread and baguette with garlic spread, mushroom pastries and a chocolate cake. The cake recipe is from a new vegan baking book Puputyttö ja vohvelisankari by Raisa Kettunen.

Here’s everything.

And close up of the potato salad. Chopped onion (or chives) could be used in it too, but one of the guests can’t eat onion, so I didn’t use any. The recipe is for very big amount of potato salad, you may want to half it if you have less than 10 eaters.

Potato and Bean Salad

2 kg waxy potatoes
water and salt for boiling
8 dl cooked black eyed beans
6 pickles
1 dl capers

1 dl oil
0,5 dl red wine vinegar
1 tbsp Dijon mustard
1 tsp salt
1 tsp freshly ground black pepper
2 tsp dried dill

Boil the potatoes and allow to cool. Peel and cube the potatoes, cube the pickles and combine them with capers and beans in huge bowl. Whisk the dressing ingredients together in a smaller bowl, pour on the salad and mix well.
