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!

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!

Lo Mein

I absolutely love noodles, and I was really excited to find this recipe for Lo Mein over at my good friend @fuel_my_smile. (Head right over check out her great feed!) The star is the flavourful sauce with tamari, hoisin, sesame oil and maple syrup. It’s just as delicious as it sounds. Pair it with noodles and lots of veg, and you’ve got one of my new favourite dishes!
.
You find the original recipe over at @fuel_my_smile. Here’s my take.
.
Mix 3 tbsp tamari (or soy sauce), 2 tbsp vegan hoisin sauce, 1 tsp sesame oil and 1 tsp maple syrup. Set aside.
Cook noodle according to instructions. I used thin somen noodles. Rinse in cold water.
Prepare the vegetables, anything you like works! I had carrots, broccoli, red and white cabbage, red onion, garlic, green soy beans and baby corn. Check my Stories for the prep!
Heat a pan and add some sesame oil. Quickly stir fry the veg on high heat. Add the noodles, and make sure everything is hot. Add 1 tbsp of mirin. Turn off the heat and toss the stir fry with the sauce. Serve immediately.

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.

Tofu Buddha Bowl

Life is getting a bit hectic right now, with the start of the new school year and everything else. So I have to keep dinner simple, and preferably in bowls where everyone can choose what they like. In my bowl is a base of basmati rice, sesame marinated tofu, edamame beans, sweet chili lentils, pickled ginger, mango, soy beans and peanuts and a drizzle of vegan sriracha mayo. A three tiny yellow tomatoes from our garden!

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!

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

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!

Gecko’s Green Pancakes

GECKO’S GREEN PANCAKES
What’s in a name? Sometimes it’s everything! My 3,5-year-old loves PJ Masks, and these green pancakes are named after the green character (obviously). So these pancakes give you strength, agility and makes you able to climb any obstacle. No wonder my kid wanted to eat them! Oh well, they taste pretty good too.

Ingredients
2 dl rolled oats
0,5 dl millet flakes
1 dl green peas or soy beans
1 dl spinach
1 dl coconut milk
1 dl plant milk
0,5 dl crunchy peanut butter
1 tbsp hemp seeds
1,5 dl plain flour
2 tsp baking powder
2 tbsp aquafaba
0,5 tsp salt
zest from lime and grated ginger

In a food processor, mix oat and millet to a coarse flour. Add all the other ingredients and mix to a thick batter. Let the batter rest for 10-15 minutes before frying pancakes on medium heat in a little coconut oil.
