I was in desperate need of some comfort food today. I was craving for carbs. I woke up in a bit of a down mood because of a dream last night. So tell me, what is better than pasta when you are craving for carbs?
I usually don’t like posting same kind of recipes one after another. And I just posted another soup recipe on Monday. But this soup is too good not to share immediately. Besides, the other recipe I was planning to post turned out to be not so good yet, so here we are.
Last Sunday I needed 1 stalk of celery for a sauce. So I bought a package of celery because you cannot buy just one stalk and ended up having lots of celery in my hands. What did I do? I made lots of soup with each and every celery stalk. This chunky and herby one is one of them.
It’s September! Which means, officially it’s autumn. Yet judging by the weather, it’s unofficially still summer! I mean really, it’s quite warm today in Helsinki. But most members of pumpkin family are out in the markets so to give a start to autumn, here is a delicious pumpkin soup.
Well ok this salad is not exactly tabbouleh, it is just inspired by it to a great extent. And it is delicious!
I am chewing a stomach tablet right now helping with pain because I ate this dip. I know that I shouldn’t have eaten something with hot peppers. But I had to taste it of course and then I couldn’t stop having more than just a bit to taste because it was so good! Ahh, sacrificing my stomach hasn’t been such a pleasure for a while…
I think, out of all kinds of gluten free flour, corn flour is my favourite. It has the colour, it has the taste and it makes everything richer. Add some extra flavour like leek and carrot in this recipe, and you almost have one full and very satisfying meal in one slice!
I love eggplant so much that I could perhaps even eat it raw (though, it may be an exaggerated move!). I also love anything with phyllo. Therefore, naturally, the combination in this börek satisfied me a lot!
Yes, it’s summer. And yes, it’s relatively warm. But this should not stop one to have hearty soup! At least, it does not stop me. Especially if it is a lovely, spicy soup like this one.
This recipe is easy! So easy that I didn’t even put photos of all the steps. It’s one of those “let’s put all the ingredients in a food processor and be done with it” kind of spreads.
