A few weeks ago, I was trying to find something different to make with green beans. Everything was boring – meaning, I knew what the taste would be like. Finally, on BBC Good Food website, I saw a Sri Lankan bean curry recipe. The ingredients were all familiar but I was intrigued by the flavours. Inspired by that recipe, I decided to make my own version with my own twists.
Well, I’m not really publishing a hearty soup recipe because the weather has been awfully autumn-like in the past few days. No no no, not at all. Or maybe just a bit.
I always liked veggie balls, even before I became a vegetarian. You can use an endless variety of ingredients to make them. This one has cauliflowers as the vegetable base, accompanied by couscous and spices.
I know what you’re thinking. A soup recipe? On 1st of June? With root vegetables, not even a cold one? Yupp. Because for me, any season is soup season. It feeds my soul above everything else.
I love potatoes. And so do Finns. Seriously, I think potato can be the national vegetable of Finland and people will gladly accept it.
I love mushrooms. I can eat them all day, every day. But until I came to Finland, I didn’t know how vast the world of mushrooms was!
My favourite in cold winter days is soup. A hearty soup. Yet this year I rarely had any, because the winter has been barely here. No proper snow, no proper cold. But I did remember to have soup finally last weekend.
Yes, celeriac is my favourite vegetable. I posted several celeriac recipes over the years (find them here). This is yet a new trial, turning them into vegetable balls!
I like rice pilaf a lot. And I like making different types of it, mixing with a variety of ingredients, such as different kinds of spices and lentils like this recipe.
This is a very easy to cook stew with very easy to find ingredients. You can even make your little twists and add more vegetables or beans you like.
