Vegetarian Goulash or Pörkölt

Vegetarian recipe loosely based on the traditional Hungarian national dish (where I substitute the porc with aubergines)


1 large aubergine, chopped into large chunks
1 diced onion
1 clove garlic, chopped fine
2 medium-size sweet peppers/paprikas
1 large tomato
4 small potatoes, chopped in 1 cm pieces
1 cup of red wine. I recommend Egri Bikavér
1 cup vegetable broth
1 tsp. paprika
4 sprigs fresh marjoram, more to garnish
salt/pepper to taste


Preheat oven to 150C

In a large stove- and oven-safe pot, sauté the onions and garlic.
When the onions start to look translucent, toss in the aubergines and the peppers. Allow it to brown a little.
Add the paprika powder and toss through. Add the potatoes, tomatoes, marjoram, wine and broth, bring to a simmer, then transfer to the oven to braise uncovered for ~45 minutes.
Add salt an pepper to taste.
Garnish with chopped marjoram.

Vegan Cupcakes (German version)

This is the recipe my wife uses for making vegan cupcakes. The recipe does not contain any eggs, milk or even soja, and still has that nice cake consistency.

280 g Mehl
125 g Zucker
1 Prise(n) Salz
15 g Weinsteinbackpulver
1/2 Apfel, püriert (ca. 2 EL)
100 ml Öl
150 ml Mineralwasser
evtl. Früchte oder Schokolade oder Nüsse
evtl. Gewürz(e) (Zimtpulver, Vanille)

Arbeitszeit: ca. 15 Min. / Koch-/Backzeit: ca. 20 Min. / Schwierigkeitsgrad: simpel / Kalorien p. P.: keine Angabe

Alle trockenen Zutaten mischen. Das Apfelmus unterrühren. Öl und Wasser mischen und schnell unterrühren. Jetzt nach Belieben noch ca. 150 – 200 g Früchte (z. B. Heidelbeeren, Apfelstücke, ...) oder Schokoladenstücke, Nüsse, Gewürze (Zimt, Vanille, ...) etc. untermischen.

Den Teig in Muffinförmchen füllen. Je nach Menge der weiteren Zutaten reicht der Teig für 9 - 12 Muffins. Bei 180°C (Umluft) ca. 20 - 25 min. backen.

Locker werden die Muffins durch das Mineralwasser und das Backpulver und die Bindung kommt vom Apfelmus - das kann man also nicht weglassen (schmeckt man nicht wirklich raus).

Ut m'n Schuven Bluven by Frank & The Fisherman's Friends

Great news! I have just released my first record!

Produced by famous Australian producer Bull Trout and backed by the Fisherman's Friends, it is an up-tempo reggae tune sung in West-Flemish Dialect.

The Title is "Ut m"n Schuven Bluven", which you can translate as "Mind your own business". Theme of the song is all about how you should always be careful what you read on the internet, and that every little fish expects to become a whale.

I was on Brussels Radio today, promoting my single.

Get your copy now - in selected stores from 04/01/2016 or on iTuna or Halibut's Playstore.

Carminho, modern fado from Portugal

Maria do Carmo Carvalho Rebelo de Andrade is better known as Carminho. She is a Portuguese fado singer.

You can say she was raised with music on her mind, since she comes from a family of musicians. Her mother, Teresa Siqueira, was a famous fado singer and music runs in her veins. She is considered one of the most talented and innovative fado singers of her generation.

She is not only excellent when performing tradition fado, but her eclectic work shows the heritage of traditional and contemporary fado, as she also dwells into other genres, like Portuguese folk music, Brazilian popular music, jazz, pop, and rock.
