I was so inquisitive about this root vegetable before I really get to know about it. After reading several articles and listening to several people I understood how good this root vegetable for the man kind. It has so many health benefits. I really love this vegetable. I use it in several dishes on my way. This celeriac mash tastes really beautiful.
Celeriac is high in dietary fibre and protein as well as many vitamins and minerals. Celeriac is good for joint health, kidney cleanse, and also for weight loss. Other than that good in bone and heart health.
This recipe will serve 6-8 People
I used 1 celeriac weighs about 600g with 5 medium potatoes. When you buy celeriac try to buy one with less holes and round in shape.Celeriac root features rough, knobby outer surface covered with tiny rootlets. Inside, its smooth white flesh has celery-like flavour.
First cut the celeriac in half. Then put the flat side down and remove the outer skin.
Cut the celeriac in to cubes and cut the potatoes too and add directly to the steamer. If not it will go brown.
Once cooked (It takes only 20 minutes) put in to a bowl and add salt and pepper.
Add some butter and cream. (Just a little bit) and mash well.
Serve as a side or as part of your main meal.
Pumpkin soup is one of the delicious soups. You can make a full meal out of that after adding extra vegetables in to it. When you add extra vegetables it tastes so nice giving extra flavour to it.
This can be a good winter warmer and a vegetarian dish too. If you are a vegan try leaving butter and cream and instead use olive oil and rice cream or coconut milk.
This recipe will serve 4 people.

Spinach and ricotta rolls can be done with different ways with filo pastry or puff pastry. When you do with puff pastry it tastes much better and making them take a bit less time too. This recipe is suitable to do as mini rolls too if you want to serve as a an entree.
I always do these pastries in filo. But I had some leftover puff pastry and I used them to make a big batch of them. I baked half of them and left the other half in freezer to use another time. I always do this. Leaving something standby to use on a busy day makes you comfortable with out giving extra stress.
To freeze them , wrap in baking papers or put them in freezer bags separately. Don’t let them stuck together. Then the thawing time increases. Make sure to squeeze the extra water in spinach throughly.
Zucchini Pancakes are one of my favourites. Not only because its full of vegetables but also simple to make. Before making these I always use to do a cake or a slice or Bake with parmesan cheese. Now I do this quite often specially in summer, when there is a lot of Zucchini available. When you do these pancakes you can add different types of flours to make it a more healthier. I normally use flax meal, whole wheat flour and also oatmeal.
This is about 500g Zucchini .Get fresh Zucchini and shred them or grate them .
This loaf cake is copy cat of a banana and date loaf I recently had in an organic coffee shop. It was really nice and warm with lots of butter.Before serving make sure to warm it for 30 seconds in the microwave with some extra butter. The butter goes through the warm bread and gives a nice taste to it.
If you are after a healthy option try with out butter. I only used 75g butter for the whole loaf. I love this loaf with out any butter too. I love dates. These days fresh dates are available due to Ramadan season. I really want to use them in my recipes. So I am working on several more recipes. If you are a date lover wait for more uploads.
- 130g dates
- 70ml Boiling Water
- 75g Butter
- 240g Self Raising Flour
- 2 Eggs
- 2 Well Ripped Bananas
- 70g Brown Sugar
- 1/2 tsp Bi carbonate of Soda
- Preheat the oven to 180c.
- Prepare a 6x4inch loaf pan. (You can always halve this recipe)
- In to a pot add the dates and the butter and bring it to boil. After add 1/2 Tsp bicarbonate of soda and mix well and leave aside.
- Add banana, brown sugar, vanilla, & eggs and mix well about 2 minutes.
- After add the dates and mix well. (Its all right to use slightly cold dates or medium hot)
- Next add the flour and mix really well scraping down the ends.
- Add the cake mix in to the loaf pan about 30 min to 50 minutes or until a skewer inserted comes out clean.
- Cool on a wire rack.
- Use with butter or as it is.
Flat Breads are so easy to make. Takes only few minutes. If you can mash the potatoes and make the filling when you are free , this is so simple to make on a busy week day. Just add the filling and making it flat only. As they are yeast free it comes nice and crusty.
You can add different flours and make it really healthy too. I added spelt whole meal flour and plain flour. You can use few spoons full of other flours to make it more healthy. Fillings can be done in your way with what ever in your fridge.
This will be good to keep a day or too in fridge to take to work or use it again. Will not be good in freezing.
