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!

Black Rice Sushi Bowl

I posted a recipe for vegan tomato “tuna” the other day. You can also find it in my Story highlights. I had some leftovers so I made a super simple sushi rice bowl. For a healthier bowl, I switched the sweet sushi rice for black rice. It was just as delicious!

Details: Black rice, vegan tomato tuna, steamed edamame beans, carrots sliced with potato peeler, sushi ginger and fresh coriander. After I took the photo I drizzled it with sriracha mayo, for a little creaminess and spicy kick.

Guacamole Burger

Happy #veganuary friends! I remember thinking last year that it seemed nearly impossible to eat a vegan diet for a whole month. I didn’t eat meat, but thought it was too complicated to replace dairy, eggs and fish. But a thought had formed, and I gradually removed all animal products. Since mid February I’ve eaten a fully plantbased diet. And it’s not hard at all. No, on the contrary – it has really awakened my interest in cooking and made me try so many new dishes and products! Are you ready to take the leap yet?

The best way is to start simple. Just replace your ordinary beef burger with one of the many vegan brands available. I like the Swedish brand @anamma_sverige, and there are many other good ones out there. Serve it in a bun with lettuce, pickled red onion and obscene amounts of guacamole, and a side of oven baked sweet potato fries. It doesn’t have to be more complicated than that to eat vegan.

Fried Rice with Sweet Potato

Happy World Vegan Day! A year ago, I wouldn’t have thought I’d eat a fully plantbased diet and enjoying it so much! I really honestly don’t feel like I miss anything non-vegan. I love how easy it it to eat like this, and vegan food can be advanced and complex as well as super simple and straightforward.

Here’s a really easy one, and a perfect way to use left over rice and odd bits of veggies. Here I’ve used turmeric rice and sweet potato cubes from the day before, and fried it with onion and garlic, pak choy, green lentils and mushrooms. I topped it with peanuts, coriander, sweet chili and a tahini drizzle.

Nacho Bake

We made a great nacho bake the other day, with lots of nice toppings and veggies. It’s one of the most popular meals in our family. But the evenings are so short now, it gets dark before 6 pm and the lack of daylight makes it impossible to shoot what we eat for dinner. So you’ll have to make do with a re-post of a nacho bake I made in the summer, when the evenings were endless and bright.

Anyone else ready hibernate when you realise the sun will set about 3 pm by the time we reach December???

Cover an oven tray with parchment paper, and spread out nacho chips and tortillas cut in pieces. Cover with soy minced (fried with onion, garlic, cumin, paprika and some tinned tomatoes) and sweetcorn. Use vegan cheese on top if you like that. Bake in the oven at 225 degrees for about 15 minutes. Top with fresh tomatoes, cucumber, lime wedges, salsa (I like pineapple in mine!), vegan sour cream and coriander. Serve with the joy of life – guacamole.
