I might be onto something here.
In my quest for the perfect plant-based staple food with complete protein I had my chilli con veg sorted and wasn’t looking anymore. But … the issue with it is that it takes ages to make and most of the time I am out of frozen left overs …
Anyhow. I had some spiced brown rice left over from yesterday and knew my body could use tons of protein. Beans here I come!
Butterbeans where half smashed to give some nice texture and together with sautéed onions and red kidney beans, loads of olive oil heated up. When I had mixed in the rice, it was quite bland and so I kept adding stuff. Next to cinnamon and chilli I added roasted tomato puree, oregano and more oil! In the end I though ‘what the heck’ and sprinkled nutritional yeast on top for added B12 and cheesieness.
I love it! I shall not forget this one.
Aren’t mushrooms the best? Super crunchy and tasteful on top of salad and grilled potatoes with onions. All I had to do is chop/mix/spice … and it is fabulously delicious.
I am perfecting my purple broccoli and soba noodle mania … it’s just so easy. I’ve now optimized it to boil/steam the broccoli for 2-3 minutes … and then wait and then put it in the oven for 10 at 180.
Just pepper and olive oil is enough.
I used leeks to mix with the noodles with more olive oil and my fake terriyaki sauce. For which I skip the garlic (no garlic if there is a weekday following lol) and just mix ginger, 1 tsp honey and soy sauce and then caramelize it with the noodles and leeks in the pan. The broccoli comes on top and it’s so crispy and tasteful! I also got into roasting seeds alongside any veg and top it with salt. Omega3 is always good and I like the crunch and munch.
Vegan, no tofu mac and cheese recipes are all over the place and so I finally tried it myself.
Of course I didn’t just stick with the recipe, I changed it and to my surprise it made a fantastic spread the next day!
The secret to it’s consistency are basically a potato soup and cashews as well as nutritional yeast.
I boiled the potatoes with 2 carrots and blended it with roasted garlic and onions. Then blended it with a couple of cashews, lemon juice and the nutritional yeast.
After a day in the fridge it has cream cheese like consistency and it also worked well mixing it again with pasta and baking it until it was crunchy.
I was also surprised how good brown rice pasta worked. Got delivered by accident, but I will get them again.
The combination of purple sprouting broccoli with soba noodles and a quick honey/soy sauce worked well. While the broccoli was in the oven I roasted some cashews in olive oil and loads of salt! Can’t believe how much salt I sometimes want … but then I run a lot and don’t consume any processed foods …
The rest of this was eaten in the morning after my run – cold – and soooo delicious. Is that the trick to make me eat breakfast?
I adore this one … it is beautiful to look at, super easy to make and the taste is just marvelous. Last year I preferred it with my own terriyaki sauce, now I just use a bit of pepper, olive oil and salt. I get it fresh from an organic farm, so don’t expect the taste to be as amazing if it comes from the supermarket ; )
Hummus and falafel … this time I made them in the oven and didn’t like them as much as when fried in a pan.
The extra effort is definitely worth it as they turn out much nicer … but it is much more work …
So happy that salad is making now more of an appearance in the weekly boxes including cucumbers and lovely radishes!
Adding in olive oil and grilled veg plus starch aka potatoes, I am hoping this satisfies my increased needs due to the running.
Never thought it can be so hard to keep weight up!
Happy about any suggestions on how to do this, as long as it’s not sweet.
Stoked to finally get some salads in my veg boxes. I can get used to grilled veg on salad and it’s so quick. Spinach for iron and seeds for crunchiness and omega 3s – yummy.
With all the energy bar recipe talk over in Wales and tons of nuts left for processing I decided to go for an experiment on my own. I decided to throw together all thing I long for and must go. The final taste worked well. What did I end up using?
Heated up: coconut oil, maple syrup, chunky peanut butter and cacao butter.
Chopped: almonds and hazelnuts
Dry stuff mixed: blended hazelnut lefovers, blended almonds, blueberry chia seeds, raw cacao powder,coconut flakes, ground flaxseeds and cacao seeds
Spices: cinnamon, nutmeg and salt
I like to roll out my energy bar mix on wax paper with a rolling pin and put it in the fridge before cutting and packaging.
