Millet is an interesting grain. It is one of the oldest cultivated grains in the world, and it is naturally gluten-free, but not many of my friends who are following a gluten-free diet like it. I started trying it in different recipes only recently, and I quite like it.
I like the beet family. They are tasty and nutritious. But the biggest reason why I love them, and I use them in recipes, is the wide variety of colours they bring! Just like this colourful salad!
The corona restrictions are being lifted, and the catering gigs are slowly coming back. I have a big birthday catering in December. My customers wanted cookies with lots of ginger for the sweet option. So I worked on this one. Yes, they are veeeery gingery.
I love dried apricots, just like I love many other dried fruits. But oh boy, I wish it wouldn’t fill me with nuclear level gas. I would then probably eat it in several kilos per week!
These muffins are moist, not too sweet, and easy to make with relatively healthy ingredients. One of these ingredients is millet, and this is the first time I have ever used it.
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.
