As much as I love sushi, both nigiri and maki rolls, sometimes I just can’t be bothered with the nori sheets and the rice cushions. Ta-da – enter the sushi bowl! In this one I’ve got sushi rice, cucumber, green soy beans, red cabbage, roasted cashews, oven baked butternut squash, pineapple and avocados. Then drizzled with vegan sriracha mayo and soy sauce.
It’s definitely getting too cold for smoothie bowls in the morning now. Good thing that the alternative is pretty good too. I don’t like oat meal, so I make my porridge with rye instead. Then I add a heaped spoon of crunchy peanut butter and banana slices that I’ve quickly heated up in a pan with a pinch of brown sugar until golden on both sides. To top it off I add some roasted coconut flakes and cold oat milk.
Life isn’t always easy, and the past few days have been tough. So this warming, slightly spicy soup is just what I need to get back on track and soothe my soul.
• Sauté 2 cloves of garlic, 1 onion and 3 cm ginger (all finely chopped) in oil in a large pot. Add 2-3 tsp red curry paste according to taste. • Next add 4 kaffir lime leaves and 400 ml of coconut milk. Bring to boil. Add 1 tbsp of miso and 1 tsp of soy sauce.
• Next, add whatever greens you like. Adjust cooking time depending on the vegetables. I added the following in this order: diced potato, broccoli, baby corn and carrots sliced with a potato peeler.
• At last, season the soup to taste with salt, extra curry paste and freshly squeezed lime.
• Cook the noodles. I used lovely thin somen noodles. Put noodles in a bowl and add soup. Top with coriander, cashews and lime wedges
I found a recipe in @vegomagasinet for green pea falafel. I haven’t made my own falafel before, so I thought I’d give it a try. I had some trouble getting the falafel batter to hold together in the pan, but with some extra flour they turned out pretty decent. A beetroot hummus was a nice match, and with potato wedges, and tomatoes, parsley and the last cornflower from our garden it made a colourful bowl.
Don’t miss my Story highlight on how to make the smoothest and best hummus!
Hello there, #tacotuesday it’s good to see you! Especially loaded with goodies like soy mince, white beans, oven roasted potatoes, tomato salsa, sweetcorn, guacamole and coriander. And my new favourite taco topping – coleslaw! I love the crunch and creaminess it adds. I simply mixed thinly sliced red cabbage and grated carrots with a little vegan mayo, a dash of white vinegar, salt and pepper.
What’s your best addition to tacos? Give me your favourites, please!
Peanut nutter is seriously addictive. The jars should come with warning labels. My 2-year-old eats it on sandwiches, except he doesn’t eat the bread. He licks the peanut butter off and asks for more. Social convention is the only thing stopping me from doing the same.
Another way of indulging is adding it to a smoothie. This is simply frozen banana, PB and oat milk blended until super creamy and smooth. Topped with home made peanut butter granola, quinoa puffs, cacao nibs and frozen blackberries, it’s the ultimate breakfast treat for PB junkies like me and my son.
Anyone else love pizza bianco? That’s without the tomato sauce. I certainly do! This one’s baked with home made dough that was left to proof for two whole days in the fridge. That makes the perfect pizza base.
I topped it with a very thin layer of hummus, and then added thinly sliced raw potatoes and onion, bits of kale and coarsely chopped walnuts. At last a drizzle of olive oil and then in the oven at 250 C for 12-15 minutes. Before serving I added some salt and black pepper, a bit more olive oil and a drizzle of agave syrup. Delicious!
A nice dip or sauce can lift any salad bowl to new heights. And the more the merrier, right? So for this pasta bowl (yes, there is penne pasta well hidden underneath the greens), I topped it was guacamole, home made coleslaw with vegan mayo, and the smoothest hummus you could ever imagine.
I’ve put a Story highlight in my profile how to make this divine, life changing hummus (after a recipe from @hannelenesvegetar). After trying this, where the trick is to boil canned chickpeas with baking soda, you’ll never want to eat another hummus again. You can thank me later.
A perfect snack to bring on a picnic. Approved by all four children! A lot healthier than your regular muffin, with oat, banana and only a little sugar. Original loaf recipe from @thesimpleveganista and only slightly adjusted by me.
Ingredients for 12 medium sized muffins
175 g rolled oats
175 g sifted rye flour
80 g brown sugar
3 tsp baking powder
a pinch of salt
3 ripe bananas, medium size
0,5 dl plant milk
0,5 dl canola oil (or substitute)
100 g frozen blueberries
Mix all the dry ingredients in a large bowl. Mash the bananas and combine with the mix. Add plant milk and oil and quickly combine until you have a thick batter. At last, fold in the blueberries.
Divide the batter into 12 muffin cups (preferrably in a muffin baking tray). Sprinkle with brown sugar and rolled oats.
Bake in the oven at 225 C for about 20 minutes, until a toothpick will come out clean when testing. Remove from the tray and let cool.
APPLE ICE CREAM WITH BUCKWHEAT GRANOLA
Any fellow food blogger recognise this scenario? You improvise something in the kitchen, add what you have at hand, take a few photos and eat the whole thing up, thinking “This is amazing!” Fast forward a month or so until you find that photo and think “Hmm… this was good, but what’s in it???”
Yep, that’s what happened here. I remember using frozen apple slices, home made apple jam with cinnamon and coconut milk. Probably vanilla powder too. And I know for sure that I made the granola on the stove top in a pan, adding dry buckwheat, walnuts and some kind of sugar. Maybe cane sugar or agave? And more cinnamon. I really wish I remembered, because this combo was so fresh, delicious and crunchy! Well, I guess I have to head back into the kitchen and try to recreate it. Lucky for me that we’re right in the middle of the apple season!
