Roasted Whole Celeriac – Oh Please Love Celeriac!

Ever since I was a kid with a very picky appetite, I loved celeriac. I loved everything about it. I loved its taste, its smell, its weird shape.

I knew, after that moment, that celeriac was the most amazing vegetable.

Vegan Monday: Freekeh Pilaf With Asparagus, Artichokes And Mushrooms

About a month ago I bought a vegan magazine in Stockmann Herkku. I don’t normally buy cooking magazines but this one looked interesting.

It turned out to be a delicious dish with a rich taste coming from all the different ingredients.

I mean, I love, many people love using vanilla in delicious cakes, cookies, desserts, but what about the other side of the coin? After a bit of research, I got inspired by a chef and started to work on this olive oil infusion.
