Summer is coming! I can feel it!
As May started the sun started to shine again, too. At lest that is the case in Germany..
Summer means sun, fun, swimming in the sea, heat, BBQ’s in the evenings and a lot more. But sometimes the heat makes it difficult to find the right thing to cook, right?
So be prepared to learn how to cook a quick dinner in only 5 minutes with simple and few ingredients!
First of all you need either a vegetable peeler or better specific gadget which looks similar to this one:
1 couragette per person
Additionally you might want a sauce, parmesan, cottage cheese and pepper, or some olive oil and sun dried tomatoes.
