The first time I heard about this dish was a few years ago when I did the graphic design of a cookbook for an amateur chef in Turkey. I loved it a lot back then, but I don’t cook it often.
These broccoli balls are delicious!!! And that’s all you need to know before making them!
You may also call this a cake. I’d say it’s something between a cake and a bread, actually. It’s not very sweet, I mean as much as a cake, so you can perfectly use it as a bread.
Wow, how truly creative I am… Put almost all the ingredients in the title. Splendid writing, Asli!

The scorching weather that I wrote about in my previous blog post continues, and I’m working on my computer now, with my electric fan fixed towards my face. I don’t want to eat anything heavy on these sweltering days, but I still need filling and nutritious food. These balls are an example of such food.
I’m currently melting into my bed while writing this blog post. Even though the window is open and my tiny electric fan is blowing right towards me at full speed, I’m still melting. Yes, the summer is in Helsinki! And if you’re going to eat a pie right now, it should be crispy and delicious, not heavy.
My guest on the podcast today is Anna Nyman, a wild food foraging enthusiast who shares her knowledge on foraging through workshops, webinars and books. I met Anna when I joined her wild herb foraging walk in Mustikkamaa (Helsinki) about a month ago.
My Dear Kitchen In Helsinki is a blog where I share recipes, interviews, food-related events and many other things since 2013. And now, since August 2020, it is the name of my podcast, which is a series of interviews with researchers, practitioners, activists, local producers and anyone else who are working on food-related issues.
I’ve been a vegetarian officially for more than two years. But even before making it “official”, I wasn’t eating meat so much. Instead, I liked and ate vegetarian “meatballs”. The recipe here is of one such kind of balls, and it’s one of my favourites.
