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.
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.
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.
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!
Well, you would know what I mean if you watched the movie. I won’t give any spoilers just in case, I’ll just say: corn everywhere!
