Paneer Butter Masala & Naan

I don’t cook a lot of Indian food, but when I do I always love it. All the spices and flavours, and of course the delicious naan, go so well together.

Here I’ve made Paneer Butter Masala after a recipe from @veggie_intervention and it was exactly as good as I was hoping for. I also made naan for the first time after a recipe from greenwarrior.se, and this was equally satifying. I’ll link to both their original posts in my Stories, and if you’re not following these accounts already, you most definitely should Gorgeous photos and delicious, inspiring food!

Ginger Miso Ramen

I’ve been dreaming of this bowl of vegan ramen since I ate it. I had a day at home where I could let the broth simmer on the stove for hours and hours, and it really paid off. I improvised, as usual, and used what I had at hand. Onions, garlic, ginger, mushrooms, carrots, lots of miso, brown sugar, soy sauce and water. I stirred once in a while and added more water, and when it was time to eat I added sesame seed oil, lime juice and a little more soy. The broth was so rich and packed with umami, and absolutely delicious.

I prepped bowls with noodles, baby corn, green soy beans, fried tofu, steamed broccoli, bean sprouts, thinly sliced carrot and fresh mint leaves. Then I poured the hot broth over the vegetables at the table and sprinkled with black sesame seeds. Best meal in a long time!

Mushroom & Spinach Bibimbap

I’m really into Asian flavours at the moment, and this Korean bibimbap is a favourite. This recipe is @welldonesthlm ‘s cookbook “Vego på 30 minuter” (only available in Swedish as far as I know).
A quick breakdown of the bowl:
* mix of jasmine and black rice
* sliced mushrooms with garlic and spinach
* kimchi
* avocado
* cucumber
* vegan mayo
* dressing with soy sauce, sesame oil, rice vinegar and agave syrup
* black and white sesame seeds

Tofu Bowl with PB Sauce

Bowls are my go to when I’m out of meal ideas. It’s so easy to just start with a carb like rice, potatos, or in this case bulghur, and then add some protein like beans, lentils, soy mince, or in this case some tofu cubes and green soy beans, and then add your greens. I used cucumber, bean sprouts and purple cabbage. Add herbs and spices, like coriander, mint and chili in this case.

And when you think you’re all set, it’s time for the best bit – the dressing! This one is inspired by @glowingly.well, one of my best friends here on IG, who had posted a lunch prep literally just minutes before I logged on to look for some inspo. Check her feed out! And then make this incredibly yummy peanut butter lime dressing. As usual I have modified the recipe from what I had at hand.

1 tbsp lime juice
1 tsp apple cider vinegar
1 tbsp Japanese soy sauce
2 tbsp crunchy peanut butter
1 tbsp maple syrup
1 tbsp grated fresh ginger
Stir all the ingredients together and add a dash of water if you want a runnier dressing. Pour generously on top of your bowl.

Thai Tofu Fry

I tried a really tasty recipe from Swedish vegan magazine @vegomagasinet. It’s crumbled firm tofu marinated in Japanese soy sauce, sweet chili, ginger, brown sugar and oil and then fried until brown. I also added green lentils and fresh bean sprouts. A fun add in this recipe was smashed cucumber! I served it with jasmine rice and topped it with fresh mint and coriander, peanuts and chili. Loved the flavours and textures in this dish, and will definitely make it again!

Mango Peanut Curry

I don’t make curries often enough! And when I finally did, apparently I forgot to write down the recipe… This sweet and spicy curry roughly includes onion and garlic, red curry paste, coconut milk, peanut butter, mango chutney, potatoes and carrots, lime and fresh mango. I served it with basmati rice, green soy beans, coriander and salted peanuts. Definitely need to recreate this one and measure it properly this time!

Teriyaki Tofu Burrito

I had an absolutely great vegan burrito at @burritosandshakes by @tacobar the other week, and I have been dreaming of recreating it ever since. I was really happy with the result and will definitely be making this again.

• Rice (cooked with turmeric for colour)
• Black beans
• Red cabbage
• Tofu, marinated in teriyaki sauce and pan fried
• Natural cashews, roasted together with the tofu
• Coriander
• Extra teriyaki sauce
Roll it all up in a tortilla bread and enjoy!

Korean Rice Bowl

I was inspired by @plantndsoulkitchen to make a Korean rice bowl with a really tasty slaw. I found a more exact recipe from @erinireland, and I can tell you that we will be making this again soon. Loved the flavours! We used seitan instead of soy mince, which worked great.
.
In a small bowl, combine 0,75 dl soy sauce or tamari with 0,75 dl brown sugar. Stir until the sugar dissolves. Add 1 tbsp sesame oil, 2 tbsp finely chopped fresh ginger and a pinch of chili flakes.
Sauté 1 finely chopped onion and then add 200 g seitan or other meat substitute. When cooked and cripsy, add the sauce and cook for another minute.
Serve hot with rice, avocado and a slaw made with red cabbage, baby spinach, olive oil, miso paste and salt. Sprinkle the bowl with chopped peanuts and black sesame seeds.

Bao Buns with Crispy Cauliflower

I finally got around to making these cute little steamed buns called Bao. They did require quite a bit of work, but it was a lot of fun. I filled them with crispy curry cauliflower, red cabbage, sliced carrot, coriander, crushed peanuts and sriracha mayo. Making them took a while, but eating them was done in seconds! But so full of flavour and great textures, that it still was absolutely worth the effort.

Have you tried or even made Bao buns? What are your favourite fillings?

Red Cabbage Slaw

My second entry in the #eatcaptureshare challenge hosted by @thelittleplantation. This one was tricky! I actually shot another dish, but the photos just didn’t work out. So I decided to highlight one of the required ingredients – the cabbage.
.
In my last entry I worked with contrast colours, and this time I wanted to go towards monochrome. But the most important thing for me is still that the food tastes good! So I paired the thinly sliced cabbage with red grapes, black and white sesame seeds and a dressing with olive oil, roasted sesame oil, mirin, maple syrup and a pinch of salt. This combination worked really well!
