The Recipe: Make Your Own Festival Food

Nobody missed that summer 2022 is the summer when we can finally go to concerts, festivals and other events. How crazy would he be? Will we all be like cows who are allowed out to graze? Gutenberg will crack. I who think about food around the clock are of course very excited about summer food from different carts. I’ll never forget that lagoon for breakfast or that hamburger eaten late in front of a concert at Way Out West. This late burger might not be much to me, because I’ve become a mother, but the food should and can be eaten anyway. I’ve developed three recipes for typical festival food with just a few extras. It is food that you can eat on the go, before the party, during the party or while you are playing. Well, it turns out, the ideas for opening a food cart popped up perfectly.

1 can whole tomato

1 clove garlic

1/2 tablespoon balsamic vinegar

1/2 tablespoon light miso or light soy paste

1/2 tablespoon olive oil
