Salty Cake With Sun-dried Tomatoes And Many Many Herbs

My previous apartment was a quite big one unlike my tiny (but big in Helsinki standards) studio apartment. At some point, my roommate was my classmate Anja.

I knew, after that moment, that celeriac was the most amazing vegetable.

Vegan Monday: Freekeh Pilaf With Asparagus, Artichokes And Mushrooms

About a month ago I bought a vegan magazine in Stockmann Herkku. I don’t normally buy cooking magazines but this one looked interesting.

It turned out to be a delicious dish with a rich taste coming from all the different ingredients.
