Maple Syrup Roasted Vegetables


This recipe goes well with poultry and would make a perfect side dish for this Christmas’ Turkey!

  • 1 kg small carrots,
  • 250 grams white turnips,
  • 250 grams yellow turnips,
  • 1 tablespoon mustard with mustard seeds,
  • 80 ml maple syrup,
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground pepper,
  • 2 garlic cloves, mashed.

Peel the vegetables and cut them into bite-size chunks.

Preheat oven to 240°C. Steam the vegetables for 10 minutes.

In a small bowl, combine the maple syrup with the mustard, garlic and pepper.

Place the steamed vegetables in an oven-proof dish, not too deep, and pour the maple syrup mixture on top. Toss the vegetables so that they are evenly coated with the syrup.

Place in the oven for approximately 25 minutes, until they are golden and nicely caramelized. Do not forget to stir the vegetables from time to time.

Zucchini & Ricotta Cakes


These zucchini and ricotta are cooked in the oven and, thus, are perfect for a light meal!

The initial recipe uses fresh goat cheese, but ricotta works well too. As zucchini and ricotta are quite bland in taste, feel free to use any spice you want. I added garlic, pepper, paprika and curry powder.

Here’s the recipe, for 6 cakes:

  • 3 zucchinis,
  • 200 grams ricotta cheese,
  • approx. 30 grams breadcrumbs,
  • a pinch of paprika,
  • a pinch of curry powder,
  • 1 garlic clove,
  • freshly ground black pepper.

Grate the zucchinis (you can either leave the skins on or peel them). Press them with your hands to eliminate most of the water contained in the flesh of the zucchinis, this to prevent your cakes to be all soggy and tasteless.

Preheat oven to 180°C.

In a salad bowl, combine the grated zucchinis, breadcrumbs, ricotta cheese, your choice of spices, garlic et pepper. Add a little salt.

Mash slightly with a fork and shape into 6 patties with your hands. Place on a baking sheet covered with parchment paper.

Place in the oven for 45 minutes. Turn them over after 20 minutes. Be careful when you handle them, as they are a bit delicate and can break apart quite easily.
