Za’atar Roasted Carrot, Spelt and Lentil Salad

Oops I did it again. Made another salad I love. Yes, more salad love!

Asian-Style Chioggia Beet and Carrot Salad

What could be prettier than a beet and carrot salad? Both have an amazingly beautiful color, especially chioggia beets with their candy cane stripes.

Simple Carrot and Fennel Soup with Coriander and Cayenne

Simple Carrot and Fennel Soup

Let’s talk fall. Let’s talk fall in Hamburg. I don’t know what the weather is like where you are, but here wet, windy and beyond chilly.

Carrot and Apple Lentils

This is a fabulously simple, delicious and easy main course vegetarian meal that I discovered by accident while on a recent trip to Stoupa, in the Peloponnese region of Greece. Where?

Carrot Kohlrabi Salad

I only really discovered kohlrabi a few years–emmm, it’s a vegetable. Heh, I was confused — It only sounded like a foreign word to me. It’s a German term meaning ”cabbage turnip”.
