Today I’m sharing a recipe that I go to when I’m craving something sweet. It takes only 20 minutes and it’s really delicious.
- 1 medium sweet potato
- one cup non-dairy yogurt
- 1tbs sunflower seeds
- 2 cup salad mix
- Dried dill 1 ts
- Dried mint 1 ts
- pinch of salt
- olive oil(to your liking)
Bake the sweet potato in oven for 20 minutes (220 Cº). I usually notch the potato on one side and wrap it in a foil before put it in oven.
Meanwhile throw salad mix, sunflower seeds, olive oil and salt in a bowl and mix. Grate the cucumber and add it to yogurt. Then add dill, mint, salt and pepper to it. Mix it and put it a side.
When the sweet potato is ready mash it with a fork put it on top of salad and add the yogurt mix on top. Enjoy.
This is a really easy delicious sauce that you can make in 5 minutes and keep in the fridge for about a week. So it’s a good option for food planing.
- sun-dried tomatoes 1 cup
- garlic 1 clove
- warm water 1 cup
- pinch of cumin
- olive oil 1/2 tbs
- sumac 1tbs
- pinch of salt
- pinch of pepper
If you are using dry-packed sun-dried tomatoes put them in warm water for about 10 minutes before using them. Otherwise put all the ingredients in a food processor and blend until it’s fully pureed.
You can add it to warm pasta instantly or transfer it to a container and put it in the fridge for later use. Instead of pasta you can use it on top of quinoa, brown rice or bulgur. If you feel like it, add roasted cauliflower, mushrooms or broccoli to it for a more fulfilling meal. Enjoy.
Saffron is one of my favorite spices. I think it’s unique and exotic, there are no other spice like Saffron. The smell is amazing that’s why it can be used to cover other smells like smell of egg yolk in pastry. Saffron is used to add color and smell to main courses, desserts or drinks.
To get the most flavor out of saffron it’s better to grind the threads. You can use a mortal&pestle or a coffee grinder to do so.
The saffron powder can be stored in an airtight food container . Every time you want to use it add a little bit of the powder to a small glass of hot water and let it sit for at least 15 minutes. Then you can use it according to the recipe.
