I like rice pilaf a lot. And I like making different types of it, mixing with a variety of ingredients, such as different kinds of spices and lentils like this recipe.
Whenever I make something with pecans, I remember how expensive they are – at least in Finland that is. I mean, I find nuts generally quite expensive here, but pecans really exceed in that. But well, they are delicious and they are used in a moderate amount in this recipe so it’ll be fine.
This is a very easy to cook stew with very easy to find ingredients. You can even make your little twists and add more vegetables or beans you like.
So, you may or may not know that muhammara is a delicious spread normally made with roasted red peppers. This time, though, I am making it with beetroots, because, why not?
Last month, I met a close friend on a Tuesday for lunch in my favourite local restaurant. In the lunch menu was a carrot and ginger soup and I just loved it, even though I don’t always like carrot soup. But adding fresh ginger is a delicious touch indeed.
This is one of those dishes that I liked a lot when I was a kid, which surprised my mother a lot. I was very picky with eating “fancier” dishes. But veggie dishes like this one, I ate without question. That is of course, as long as she cooked it without meat.
This dessert is delicious, fast-and-easy, and it requires only 3 ingredients (4, if you want to top it with pistachios while serving which is totally optional). But I have to warn you, even with only 3 ingredients it is not the cheapest dessert to make, yet I believe it is worth the costs.
I just look at my latest recipes and realised that I’ve posted a lot of colourful dishes lately. This recipe is not like that, may even look a bit bland, but it is delicious and nutritious.
Last year, I posted a whole roasted celeriac recipe. This year it is cauliflower. And I am using one of my favourite ingredients lately: turmeric. Let’s roll!
So, I used quotation mark in the title because baba ganoush, as you may already know, is traditionally made with eggplants. I made a little twist to it, and used sweet potatoes this time.
