Last month, I met a close friend on a Tuesday for lunch in my favourite local restaurant. In the lunch menu was a carrot and ginger soup and I just loved it, even though I don’t always like carrot soup. But adding fresh ginger is a delicious touch indeed.
For a long time I’ve been planning to make an olive oil cake. So here is the first trial!
This easy-to-make dip benefits greatly from the sweet flavour of roasted onions being caramelised.
Many years ago I posted the recipe for a chocolate beetroot cake. Since then I’ve known what a match made in heaven it is, beetroot and dark chocolate. But I seem to have forgotten that for a long time! Luckily, I remembered it again and tried it on a brownie recipe this time.
This is one of those dishes that I liked a lot when I was a kid, which surprised my mother a lot. I was very picky with eating “fancier” dishes. But veggie dishes like this one, I ate without question. That is of course, as long as she cooked it without meat.
I am writing this blog post while having a huge pain on my neck and upper back. I don’t know how this happened, really. I mean, I work out regularly, I stretch regularly, I don’t work out too hard, so how the hell did this happen?? Arrghh… Anyway, here is a delicious cookie recipe.
We mostly eat hummus as a spread on bread. I quite like hummus, though I don’t really ever crave for it. But how about using hummus as an ingredient of a different kind of dish instead?
This dessert is delicious, fast-and-easy, and it requires only 3 ingredients (4, if you want to top it with pistachios while serving which is totally optional). But I have to warn you, even with only 3 ingredients it is not the cheapest dessert to make, yet I believe it is worth the costs.
One of my favourite combinations: sweet potato & black beans. And this gratin turned out so delicious that I ate this all day today. Not the whole thing of course. But I am only happy to be able to continue eating the leftovers tomorrow!
A couple of weeks ago, when I published a baba ganoush recipe with sweet potatoes instead of traditional ingredient eggplant, I felt sorry for the dear vegetable eggplant. So I made this recipe to make it up for it!!!
