Broccoli and Carrots with Dressing and Yoghurt

Posted on

I made this recipe for lunch. I left out the onion and steamed the vegetables instead of boiling them.

Papaya Fruit Dip

Posted on

I had some dressing (consisting of papaya, yoghurt, and lemon juice) left over from my salad, so I added maple syrup and used it as a fruit dip.

Sprouted Fenugreek Salad with Fruity Dressing

Posted on

This has to be one of the prettiest salads I’ve ever made. The dressing was initially a little bland, probably because the papaya wasn’t a very good one. I perked it up with a squeeze of lemon juice and that made all the difference.

It’s an unusual way of enjoying a mix of fruits and vegetables.

Bonus Post: Kayseri Mantı

I don’t think this really qualifies as cooking. I found that my local Turkish shop carried dried Kayseri mantı filled with tofu, so naturally I had to try it. I served it with haydari, paprika powder and paprika paste.

Of course it was not as delicious as fresh mantı, but I was pleasantly surprised by how well the non-traditional filling worked.


This is a yoghurt meze dish. It is one of the few dishes where I like fresh dill. I had a small piece of feta so I included it.

Borani Bademjan ba Ghojeh

This dish consists of aubergines/eggplants cooked with tomatoes, mixed with yoghurt. It is good with a bit of bread on a hot day.

Pomegranate Yoghurt Dip

Here is yet another yoghurt dip which is good with bread. It contains pomegranate seeds, green onions, coriander leaf (cilantro), salt and allspice. The pomegranate seeds give a burst of freshness when you eat it.
