My mom says you shouldn’t eat raw broccoli, but I still do it. 🙂 Most of the time just dipped in hummus, but now also in the form of this salad. The apple & cranberry add sweetness and the red onion makes it a bit spicy. I ate this as a main meal, but you can easily make it as a side for another dish.
I have to admit, I’m not quite ready for fall yet (granted I didn’t have a real summer), but I’m willing to see the positives and embrace the season! I can wear my nice coats again, snuggle up on the couch with a cup of tea on a rainy day, go to museums on the weekends and savour warm soups & curries!
This post is a little summary of what I eat on a weekend day at home. I don’t like spending most of my time in the kitchen, so everything is super simple & easy to make! Generally, breakfast is my favorite meal of the day, so I put the most effort into it. 🙂 Lunch & dinner on the weekends are usually salads or veggies.
When it comes to cooking, I’m lazy. If there is any way to avoid a pile of dishes to clean up after, I will choose it. So naturally, I gravitate towards one-dish meals and shortcuts like this mugcake. You can whip it up in one mug and eat it straight out of there!
This roasted chickpea kebab is a recipe for the lazy vegans (like me), who want a quick meal without elaborate cutting & cooking. All it takes is cutting open a flat bread, marinating and frying the chickpeas and throwing everything in the bun together. It’s perfect for weeknights and probably classifies as “fast food” while still being sort of healthy! 🙂
Winter time is soup time for me. And even though I don’t crave soup all too often, I sometimes need a warm bowl to nourish my body when it gets colder. This creamy potato soup hit the spot just right, as it integrates my favorite food – potatoes – in a healthy way.
To prepare for the current Christmas craziness of overeating on candy, I did a sugarfree November, where I cut out all industrial sugar (meaning white sugar in chocolate, drinks, pastries and so on). This was tough for about 2 weeks as I was strongly craving my afternoon treat, but after those first weeks my body got used to it.
Guys, I have a confession to make. There is a possibility that I made this Alfredo sauce 3 times in the last 3 weeks and I’d be ready to make it again. This creamy vegan cheeze sauce is so flavorful and thick that it could actually pass as real cheese sauce.
As soon as the leaves start falling and the air is getting crisp, I start looking forward to pumpkin soup, mulled wine & gingerbread and cuddled up mornings with warm oatmeal in bed. Good thing I have the perfect recipe for that. 🙂
Another salad before the summer is gone completely! This is also an easy vegan recipe, which you can bring to a barbeque or make as a side for dinner. And you can bring the leftovers to work for lunch the next day 😉 Ingredients: 200g uncooked lentils 1 apple 0.5 small red onion For the dressing: 1 tbsp olive oil 1.5 tbsp apple cider vinegar 1 tbsp maple syrup salt & pepper to taste Instructions: Wash & drain lentils. In twice the amount of water, bring the lentils to a boil and let simmer for 5-10 minutes. Drain the remaining water and let the lentils cool off. Peel & chop onion. Cut apple into little cubes. Then mix both with the lentils. Mix all ingredients for the dressing and mix with salad.
