Whenever I feel sick or depressed, all I want to eat is soup. When I got (a mild) covid two weeks ago, I wanted to eat soup too. And this was one of the two soups that I ate (the other was “ezogelin” soup).
I’ll start by saying I don’t really like tofu, and I tolerate it when it comes inside my plate, and I neither like its spongy texture nor taste. However, I know that it has a lot of health benefits and it’s full of protein, so here I am, trying my best to use it in my everyday diet.
A few weeks ago, I was scrolling down Instagram’s “explore” section, and I saw a photo of eggplant katsu. I had never heard of “katsu”. As I LOVE eggplant, I had to try this ASAP. But how?
This versatile dish will be the highlight of your meals. And it will make your kids eat that broccoli that they don’t want to eat! :)
I love pasta, but try not to eat too much to keep me from a carb bombarding (I can really overeat pasta!). So this is a good way to eat pasta. There are a lot of other things in it, and you can still get a bit of pasta to overcome the craving.
Cauliflower can be a tricky vegetable. It can be incredibly bland if you only boil it and serve it like that. Well, sometimes, when I don’t have much time, I like to boil cauliflower and simply eat it with yoghurt. But this dish is extremely rich in flavour with a softened texture.
2022 is here, and the first recipe I chose for the new year is my version of “mücver” – aka Turkish courgette fritters. I added carrots to it and used cornflour to take the moisture. The result is a delicious gluten-free dish.
Here is an easy spread recipe that will add bright colours to your table! It’s effortless, and the only thing that takes a little bit of time is the roasting of beetroots and garlic.
A few weeks ago, we had a lovely raki and mezze night with my boyfriend and two of my closest friends. Raki is the national drink of Turkey, and it is my favourite alcoholic beverage. But I don’t love just the taste of it; I love the whole “socialisation, eating long and drinking long with people you love” aspects of it. And of course, the mezze that comes together with it is equally important!
I like the beet family. They are tasty and nutritious. But the biggest reason why I love them, and I use them in recipes, is the wide variety of colours they bring! Just like this colourful salad!
