Falafel Bowl

You know when you find a stack of different leftovers in the fridge, and just throw them in a bowl together. Doesn’t it often end up better than the original meal? That was definitely the case here. Spicy potato wedges, crispy falafel, oven baked Greek salad, hummus, tzatziki and baby spinach. Dreamy!

Meze Platter

I love snack platters, but I don’t make them often enough. Luckily, I saw a beautiful meze platter from @elleshungry that inspired me to make this one. (You need to check Elle out! Amazing photos of the most stunning café foods in Sydney, and delicious homemade meals and sweets. I’ll share her post in my Stories!)
.
Platter details:
* Oven roasted sweet potatoes rubbed with cumin, turmeric, thyme, salt & pepper and some olive oil.
* Sliced tomato and cucumber.
* Avocado with black sesame seeds.
* Liba bread cut in triangles.
* Hummus (you can find the recipe for the best and smoothest hummus in my highlights).
* Vegan greek yoghurt and feta dip with lemon, salt and fresh mint.
* Flat leaf parsley and fresh mint.

Grazing Platter

Can you tell that platters are my new hobby? I took a leap and tried making one with vegetables and dips instead of fruit. I was hoping that the kids would dive straight in and eat in the same manner as the fruit platters. They did not. Well, the carrots and tomatoes were alright, but not much else. I’ll admit I was a bit disappointed…
.
On this platter: orange and purple carrots, cauliflower, cherry plum tomatoes, mushrooms, sugar snaps and red cabbage, and hummus (you can find the ultimate smooth hummus recipe in my Stories highlights!), cheesy sunflower seed dip and a vegan pesto (store bought from @garantskafferiet – really good!).

I see so many gorgeous, colourful salads here in my feed. So inspiring! Here my contribution – a nourishing, yummy salad with every colour of the rainbow. I served it with a smooth hummus on the side (see recipe for a world class hummus in my Stories).

Ingredients by colour:
• Red rice and sliced red apples (red, obviously)
• Golden bread croutons and roasted walnuts (let’s count that as orange, shall we?)
• Marigold petals (yellow)
• Steamed broccoli, avocado, green lentils, parsley and pumpkin seeds (green)
• Raw grated beetroot (purple)
• Borage petals (blue)

I hope you also enjoy eating the rainbow, my friends!

Green Pea Falafel & Beetroot Hummus Bowl

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.

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.

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

Barbecue Cheese Dinner Gluten Free Lunch

Grilled Greens

It’s all good that there are meat-free burgers, sausages and chick’n for those summer barbecues, so that more people skip the meat. But sometimes the veggies themselves are good enough.

We used slices of eggplant and zucchini, mushrooms, romaine lettuce, tomatoes and new potatoes and carrots (boiled beforehand until almost soft). Toss the veggies onto the grill, serve it with some hummus and sage, and at last sprinkle it with cashew parmesan.

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.

Durra & Carrot Salad

A colourful and delicious salad with durra, ovenbaked carrots, pickled red onions, black beans marinated in lemon juice, ginger and olive oil, quartered strawberries, basil and pumpkin seeds. Drizzle with a classic Dijon mustard vinaigrette and serve with lovely pink beetroot hummus.

Durra is naturally gluten free, it’s a seed and similar to quinoa and amaranth.
