Boy oh boy is it cold out there these past few days, we got snow too! Nothing else but a casserole or pie will do when it’s cold like this. This fish pie with dill and leeks is just what I crave!
I ve been under the weather with colds and an awfully soar throat that won’t go away, so I am taking it easy. This winter salad is one of my ultimate favourites: easy, full of flavour and very seasonal.
Nothing says more winter like (black) salsify! This root vegetables from the days of yor, is still quite popular in Belgium and I LOVE it. It claims to taste like oysters, I really don’t get that at all. To me it’s a mix between a turnip, parsnip and root celery. It is very versatile and easy to cook. Check out my salsify soup!
One of those special Belgian and in particular Brussels grown vegetables is the chicon ( endive – witloof). The growing process is surprisingly complex and requires still a lot of manual labour but the result one of my favourite winter vegetables. Read all about this vegetable here.
