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’m writing this blog post in my apartment which has been also serving as a sauna these days. I made these pastries yesterday evening when it was a 24C summer evening and I could almost bake them without an oven.
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.
For the last few weeks my mood got worse and worse. The anxiety and depression I feel because of the situation in the world got extremely unbearable at times. So I didn’t want to feel like doing anything new – for the blog I mean. I didn’t want to do anything. But today I found some fresh energy again. So.. voila!
It’s been sunny and warm for 2 days in a row now in Helsinki. This requires a recipe that has a lot of sun in it.
I love potatoes. And so do Finns. Seriously, I think potato can be the national vegetable of Finland and people will gladly accept it.
In times like this, when we are all feeling weird, uncertain, scared, it’s good to bake and eat comfort food. Salty cake is a good one to try.
…And I think you can guess why I hate it.
My adventures with fava bean continues. And so does my adventure with Finnish language.
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!
