Black Fungus Salad with Onion

Posted on

This colourful mu-err mushroom (black fungus) salad with coriander leaf (cilantro) and onion contains re-hydrated goji berries.

I prefer this salad to the one with carrots, but my favourite black fungus salad to date is the one with cucumbers and star anise.

Here’s a recipe for ful mudammas. I substituted giant white beans for fava beans to save myself a bit of work peeling.

Chocolate-Banana Smoothie with Cauliflower and Spirulina

Posted on

On days when I feel like making my dessert smoothie a bit more healthy, I add a handful of frozen steamed cauliflower, a teaspoon of milled flaxseed and a teaspoon of spirulina powder. Because of the strong, sweet flavours I don’t really notice the cauliflower and spirulina as distinct ingredients, only as a reduction in sweetness.

I’ve decorated this bowl with goji berries, blueberries, milled flaxseed and a raspberry.

Chocolate Banana Smoothie

Posted on

I make this smoothie as a full-meal dessert, when I’m craving something sweet but don’t want to eat a full meal and also a sweet. Usually I make it from one banana, one tablespoon of Dutch-process cocoa powder, 1 teaspoon tahini, 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract, 4 juicy dates, and stevia to taste. I add just enough hazelnut milk to blend.

This smoothie is decorated with matcha powder, coconut flakes, raspberries, strawberry and pistachios.

Mutabal

The appearance of spring weather makes me want summery foods: meze and bread with cheese. I made mutabal for the first time, serving it with familiar favourites such as yoğurtlu havuç salatası.

Green Smoothie Breakfast Bowl

Posted on

Usually when I make smoothies I make them as a dessert, using fruits and not vegetables, but smoothie breakfast bowls looked like too much fun to pass up. I made the smoothie from cooked and chilled broccoli, a handful of blueberries, a banana, hazelnut milk, and stevia. To decorate I used sunflower seeds, dried goji berries, pumpkin seeds, pinenuts, coconut flakes, sliced almonds, black and white sesame seeds, flax seed powder, and flax seed powder mixed with goji berry.
