Happy new year! It’s been ages since I wrote a new blog post because I’ve been busy with many things. I finally had time to make a new recipe, and it was a delicious salad.
I’m a vegetarian, which means I don’t eat meat but dairy products, though I’m trying to cut the amount I consume. I often try vegan substitutes for cheese and yoghurt (I don’t drink milk anyway). After many trials, I now have a favourite vegan cheese: Violife Greek White.
I’ve been away for a while: I got on a plane after 2.5 years and visited my family. I also decided to be away from the internet as much as possible. I only posted random stuff on Facebook and Instagram. Now I’m back on the blog as the holiday still continues. And here is the first recipe after the break.
This type of bread, or more like savoury cake, is something I like making a lot, and there are many recipes on the blog. This one is different from the others because this is a gluten-free version!
2022 is here, and the first recipe I chose for the new year is my version of “mücver” – aka Turkish courgette fritters. I added carrots to it and used cornflour to take the moisture. The result is a delicious gluten-free dish.
Here is an easy spread recipe that will add bright colours to your table! It’s effortless, and the only thing that takes a little bit of time is the roasting of beetroots and garlic.
A few weeks ago, we had a lovely raki and mezze night with my boyfriend and two of my closest friends. Raki is the national drink of Turkey, and it is my favourite alcoholic beverage. But I don’t love just the taste of it; I love the whole “socialisation, eating long and drinking long with people you love” aspects of it. And of course, the mezze that comes together with it is equally important!
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.
