A few weeks ago, I was trying to find something different to make with green beans. Everything was boring – meaning, I knew what the taste would be like. Finally, on BBC Good Food website, I saw a Sri Lankan bean curry recipe. The ingredients were all familiar but I was intrigued by the flavours. Inspired by that recipe, I decided to make my own version with my own twists.
Well, I’m not really publishing a hearty soup recipe because the weather has been awfully autumn-like in the past few days. No no no, not at all. Or maybe just a bit.
I’ve been waiting for Heinon Tukku wholesale market to bring yellow zucchini for weeks, just to be able to make this recipe. Why yellow zucchini? Purely visual reasons. I could have easily done it with another veggie. And so can you, in case you wonder.
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.
I love potatoes. And so do Finns. Seriously, I think potato can be the national vegetable of Finland and people will gladly accept it.
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!
Yes, celeriac is my favourite vegetable. I posted several celeriac recipes over the years (find them here). This is yet a new trial, turning them into vegetable balls!
I decided to start this week with a simple enough recipe. I mean, mashed potatoes, how hard can it be? In this recipe, you just add a few extra ingredients to potatoes and then you’re good to go. But oh, that garlic flavour…. yum.
