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

Salad with Tofu, Melon & Capers

Another one of those salads where I simply roam the fridge, save some veggies or fruit before they go bad, add some tofu and drizzle with a super quick dressing.
.
In this mess you can find whole bulghur, watermelon, cucumber, sesame tofu, capers, fresh basil and coriander, and a tahini dressing. I just added some lime juice, salt and plant milk and stirred until smooth and runny.

Nacho Bake

Does nachos count as #tacotuesday? Anyway, this is a favourite in my family, based on a recipe from @welldonesthlm. 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.

Onigirazu

I’ve seen so many beautiful photos of these sushi sandwiches on Instagram, and I had to try it. It was fun and easy enough to make. But eating it in any civilised way was another story. No food for a first date. But aside from the mess, it was super tasty!

Cook sushi rice and prepare whatever fillings you like. Inspired by @hannelenesvegetar, we used ovenbaked butternut squash in slices, red cabbage, avocado, alfalfa sprouts, peaches and cucumber. Put sushi rice on a nori sheet. Layer the fillings and finish with some rice. Fold the nori sheet like an envelope and flip over. Carefully cut in half with a sharp knife and open up to expose the middle. Drizzle with vegan sriracha and dried roasted onion. Serve with soy sauce, wasabi and pickled ginger.

Loaded Veggie Sandwich

Who says a sandwich can’t count as dinner? It only depends on what you put in it. If you stuff it until it almost bursts and you have to open up wider than at the dentist’s, I can assure you it’s dinner compatible. This one’s loaded with lettuce, grated carrots, cucumber, almond feta cheese, tomatoes, bean sprouts and beetroot hummus.

Homegrown

This might look like a very ordinary sandwich. But to me, it wasn’t. It’s homemade all the way. Ok, we didn’t grow the grains for the flour or the cashews. But we’ve started the sourdough, baked the bread, made the cashew cream cheese and grown the cucumber and the basil from seeds. And my – didn’t it taste extra special?!

The cashew cream is from when I made the frosting for the carrot cake. I made some extra when trying the recipe out, and took some aside before adding the icing sugar. The texture is so nice and it goes really well with veggies and a pinch of salt on top.

Watermelon & Red Rice Salad with Almond Feta

You know the almond feta from the other day? This is what I used it for – a fabulous salad with lots of good stuff.

1 almond feta cheese
1/4 watermelon, diced
1,5 dl red rice, cook as instructed on packet
1/2 cucumber, diced
1 dl kalamata olives
2 dl croutons from sourdough bread
2 celery stalks, coarsely chopped
olive oil and white vinegar
black pepper
fresh oregano

Carefully toss all the vegetables with the rice and croutons in a big salad bowl. Season with olive oil, vinegar and black pepper. Plate and top with a quarter of the almond feta cheese. Garnish with fresh oregano.

Easy Mince with Toppings

Very simple dinner – fried some soy mince together with garlic and mushrooms, served with tomato, cucumber and sweetcorn. Topped it with salsa, leftover guacamole, cashew parmesan and coriander. Some liba bread on the side – et voilà! Dinner on the table in fifteen minutes.

Layered Salad with Miso Dressing

Crisp cabbage thinly sliced, carrots and cucumber cut with a potato peeler. So simple! And poured on top is a umami flavoured dressing with:
3 tbsp miso paste
2 tbsp soy sauce
2 tbsp rice vinegar
10-15 drops of roasted sesame oil
3 cm finely chopped fresh ginger
juice from 1/2 lime
1 tsp cane sugar

Pick and Mix Salad

The best way of serving salad in our house is by not mixing it up. With four kids with different preferences we try to keep the ingredients separate, so everyone can pick what they like.

This salad platter was served with whole bulghur cooked with vegetable stock and tumeric for lovely colour, triangles of liba bread and hummus with sun-dried tomatoes. Simply add 8-10 sun-dried tomatoes and some oil from the jar when making your hummus, and use a bit less tahini. So tasty!
