Sushi Bowl

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.

Tacos with Coleslaw

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!

Pasta Bowl with Dips

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.

Bahn Mì

I doubt that there is a better way to stuff a baguette than vegan Bahn Mì style. I just love these flavours together. It’s traditionally filled with liver paté and pork, but I’ve never had that. So to me, this is the real thing. I marinate slices of pressed tofu overnight in canola oil, sweet chili, soy sauce and sesame oil, and then oven bake it until firm. Then you just load up your baguette with all these goodies:

• a thick spread of crunchy peanut butter (and I mean THICK!)
• oven baked slices of tofu
• thinly sliced cucumber & red cabbage
• pickled carrots
• lots of vegan sriracha mayo
• fresh mint and coriander

It was perfect to use these bake off mini baguettes, because it meant I could eat more than one!

No Rules Maki Rolls

I love sushi, it’s one of few foods that I can get a serious craving for. It was actually when I had vegan sushi the first time that I realised I could go plantbased without missing out. Vegan sushi is so good, and so much fun because you can go wild with fillings or toppings.

In these yummy maki rolls I had crispy sesame tofu sticks, thinly sliced red cabbage, baked butternut squash, cucumber and a sauce with oat fraiche and mango chutney. I drizzle with vegan sriracha mayo and some sesame seeds. Spicy and delicious!

Sweet Potato & Hummus Salad

Too many things in this salad to fit it into a bowl! I needed to use up leftover rice, so that was my base. It’s not something i usually put in a salad, but it worked really well. A great, filling salad!

On this plate:
sweet potato, diced and oven baked
red cabbage, thinly sliced
green soy beans
nectarines
hummus with looooots of tahini
cucumber
alfalfa sprouts
rock melon (hidden under the coriander)
baby spinach
capers
coriander
drizzle of vegan sriracha mayo

Olive & Ajvar Pasta

A quick pasta dish with Mediterranean flavours. Garlic and onions, sliced mushrooms and zucchini, white cabbage, baby spinach leaves and green olives. Then I added some ajvar relish, fresh rosemary, lemon juice, salt and pepper. Served it with pasta (shaped as wild animals – the kids’ choice and the only animals we eat!), topped it with more olives, flat-leaf parsley and a spoonful of ajvar. Easy peasy!

Pad Thai

Another Asian dish, this time the fantastic rice noodle wok Pad Thai. This one is inspired by @hannelenesvegetar, with great additions like red cabbage and edamame. I made a sesame tofu with lots of tahini in the marinade, which was great with this dish. I cheated and used store bought Pad Thai sauce (luckily I found a vegan one!), but next time I’m definitely making my own. Did I say that you should put copious amounts of coriander on top? Always, always add coriander!

Summer Rolls

What better food for a hot day than summer rolls? Vermicelli rice noodles, red cabbage, alfalfa sprouts, mango, salted peanuts and green soy beans, all wrapped in a thin rice paper. A simple dip sauce with lime, soy sauce, chili and ginger on the side. And the crispy tofu sticks that I prepared but forgot to add to the rolls… Better luck next time – but these rolls were pretty great anyway!

Peach, Avocado & Red Cabbage Salad

Let’s see, what’s in my fridge? A bit of this and that, and as usual my standard answer is to make a salad. This one is with baby spinach, thinly sliced red cabbage, sliced avocado, carrots sliced with a potato peeler and pieces of sweet peaches. I sliced a ciabatta and toasted it with oil and garlic in a pan. I topped with a dressing of peanut butter, tahini, a splash of plant milk, a pinch of cane sugar and a squeeze of lime. Lots of flavours and lots of yum!
