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.
Yes, yes I do. I love bulgur! A few weeks ago I posted my first bulgur pilaf recipe and since then I’ve been eating bulgur often believe me. This recipe is a variation of that first pilaf recipe. This time I used one of my favourite vegetables, the magnificent eggplant.
Yes, the title says all. The secret to this salad is to chop everything small. And you must, I mean you MUST, use pomegranate syrup and sumac. You must find them and you must use them.
Last week I fought hard not to get sick. Seriously, I had a bit of a sore throat and a bit of headache here and there, but it wasn’t a full blown flu. So in order to keep myself warm and keep the flu further away, I made this healthy and delicious soup.
A few years ago, I published a cookie recipe with tahini, almond and honey. I made those cookies many times for gluten free friends and customers, and I also made vegan versions, maybe even more, by substituting honey with syrup. This recipe I’m writing today is a variation of those cookies with the added loveliness of cacao.
It’s September 1st today and I had a long walk in my favourite part of Helsinki nature with a summer top and shorts today. It was a beautiful summer-ish day. I even had a tiny sun tan on my nose. But before going out, I made a cake that fit this beautiful warm day perfectly: a lemon and poppy seed cake.
