I’ve been away from the blog for a very long time. I had many other things on my mind, and I didn’t have time, energy or inspiration to work on any new recipe. That’s what a mid-life crisis does to you. But here is one new recipe.
I’m a vegetarian, which means I don’t eat meat but dairy products, though I’m trying to cut the amount I consume. I often try vegan substitutes for cheese and yoghurt (I don’t drink milk anyway). After many trials, I now have a favourite vegan cheese: Violife Greek White.
I’ve been away for a while: I got on a plane after 2.5 years and visited my family. I also decided to be away from the internet as much as possible. I only posted random stuff on Facebook and Instagram. Now I’m back on the blog as the holiday still continues. And here is the first recipe after the break.
My guest today is Swedish-speaking Finnish chef Christian Tikkanen, the founder and secretary of Finlands Svenska Måltidsakademi aka Finlands Swedish Food Academy.
My guest on the podcast today is Jenni Lares, a historian currently based at Tampere University. Jenni and I talked about the history and meaning of drinking in Finland in the 17th century, which was her doctoral research topic.
Whenever I feel sick or depressed, all I want to eat is soup. When I got (a mild) covid two weeks ago, I wanted to eat soup too. And this was one of the two soups that I ate (the other was “ezogelin” soup).
If you’ve ever seen at least one episode of Bob Ross’ “Joy of Painting”, you know how beloved Bob Ross is. I absolutely loved watching his program, and he was so calm and lovely. And so last week, I decided to have my own Bob Ross moment with a bunch of vegetables.
This type of bread, or more like savoury cake, is something I like making a lot, and there are many recipes on the blog. This one is different from the others because this is a gluten-free version!
I’ll start by saying I don’t really like tofu, and I tolerate it when it comes inside my plate, and I neither like its spongy texture nor taste. However, I know that it has a lot of health benefits and it’s full of protein, so here I am, trying my best to use it in my everyday diet.
These muffins are good for any time of the day. You can eat them in the morning for breakfast, at lunch with a light salad or in the evening as bread. You can even have one with your afternoon tea.
