It’s spring but let’s be honest, isn’t spring just a pre summer party filled with flowers and summery dishes? So it’s time for us to make some more refreshing summer dishes, like these colourful salsas jam packed with flavour!
These salsas make use of both savoury and sweet, using veggies and fruits to create a delicious well balanced topping/dip for bread, nachos or anything your heart desires. You could also prepare this as a side for your next bbq party, bring something unique to the table….
Pasta is one of those foods which most of us can agree, is very comforting. The thing I love about cooking with pasta is that you can create such a variety of dishes, and it’s quite cost effective as well.
This recipe is another easy, yet delicious dish that’ll be jam packed with flavours and healthy nutrients, not to forget some full fat coconut milk to make it extra comforting! Your dinner will be served in less than 20 minutes.
“Vegan fish soup? Sounds a bit fishy to me”, this might come to mind when reading the title, and I wouldn’t blame you. This soup is my attempt at recreating a surinamese dish that I absolutely adore, and haven’t had in many years. The thought of ever having this soup again went away when I went vegan, until today!
In Sranan Tongo they call this soup “pepre watra” which translates to pepper water, but it’s basically a fish soup, a very very spicy fish soup. Traditionally this soup is eaten with cassava bread, or rice. This version of the traditional Native Surinamese dish will make your taste buds dance! Dishes like this transport me back to my childhood, they’re my ultimate comfort foods. By sharing these recipes I’m truly sharing a part of me, with you.
Beans, oh beans. Beans and stews are some of my favourite foods, always been and always will. Even though I love both, combining the two is where the magic really happens! Look the dish might not look extremely appetising, but the flavour it on point! One of my loved ones called this “prison food”… Well let me tell you this! If they served this in prison, I wouldn’t mind a stay (just kidding, prison sucks). You know sometimes it are the most unattractive dishes that surprise us with their bold and complex flavours, and this dish is definitely one of them! I mean I could try to make it look presentable, but there’s no use, this dish speaks for itself, try it.
This dish is not only extremely delicious, combining it with rice it will serve as a complete protein. So next time people ask you where you get your protein you can simply send them to this post for a yummy protein packed recipe.
As most of my recipe you can totally modify this one to your own taste. You can decide to sprinkle it with some cilantro before serving, or maybe leave out the pepper, it’s all up to you. Also the spinach I added is totally optional, I simply love adding spinach to almost any of my dishes, go ahead and give it your own twist, maybe add some carrots and celery, experiment! And if you don’t like kidney beans, simply swap them for chickpeas, It’s your stew.
Let me know if you liked the recipe in the comments below and if you decide to recreate this dish feel free to tag me on Instagram as I’d love to see your creations!
From now on we’ll have a new bao bun recipe every month! Let’s call it the Bao Of The Month and let’s make it colourful! I could easily make a sandwich of the month but I definitely prefer steamed buns over sandwiches, they’re like little clouds filled with deliciousness, who doesn’t want to eat clouds? This months bao is a green one, filled with some greens and a chickpea mash spiced with garam masala.
These buns are actually super easy to make, especially since I’ve started using my food processor to make the dough. We only need to rise the dough once, and let the steam do the rest, voila!…
Potatoes and lentils are, in this case a match made in heaven (the kitchen), who would have thought!? I’ve been eating stuffed potatoes a few times the past couple of days and today was no different, but this time I decided to note down everything I used to create this dish so I actually could come with a recipe to share with you! Sharing more recipe and other posts has actually been something that’s been on my mind for quit some time, so here I am trying to be more productive, which has become a lot easier now that its more sunnier, the sun never seizes to inspire me.
Now back to potatoes! These starchy tubers are so versatile, you simply cant go wrong with them, you can have them boiled, baked, mashed and in this case stuffed. These potatoes will be stuffed with Mexican style lentils. What makes these Mexican you might ask? Well cumin of course and they’re topped with avocado. Ok I’m gonna be honest, it was my intention to make these using black beans (making them more Mexican) but I ran out of those so decided to go with lentils. Just so you know, I love Mexican food!
Of course I provide a basic recipe with this dish, but I always like to invite you to give it your own twist, we all have different preferences when it comes to food, so always feel free to experiment! You could for example go for black beans, as this was my initial plan, or add some cilantro or vegan mayo! If you don’t have potatoes you could even try having these lentils with tortillas. I ate these potatoes with parsnips and arugula.
Also did you know lentils are a nice source of protein, and mixed with corn they are a complete protein! I’m not a nutritionist, but thats something I happen to know. So whenever someone asks you the notorious question “but where do you get your proteins?”, invite them to your kitchen and show them how its done.
Now I hope you’ll like this recipe and be sure to let me know if you’ll give it a try. Remember to stay awesome and keep your eyes peeled, cause I’m working on some fun posts!
To be honest i’ve never been a real sushi lover before i turned vegan, the thought of eating raw fish just never appealed to me. That was until about 6 months ago when i decided to give sushi another try (this time completely plant base of course) and i’ve been hooked ever since! The thing i love about sushi is how fun it is to make and eat, plus its simply delicious.
This week i want to share my recipe for delicious rainbow maki, cause we all want to taste the rainbow. Sushi is another one of those dishes that allows you to let your creativity flow and use your imagination. I mean you can basically fill it with whatever your heart desires.
Before i made my first attempt at sushi i felt very intimidated, i was under the impression that it would take a long and difficult process to make. This doesn’t mean its super easy cause sushi making is an art of its own, and although i’m an amateur i can still make a tasty sushi, and so can you!
Like usual this recipe is open to interpretations, so feel free to mix and match with the ingredients. If you don’t like bell pepper just leave it out, or are you feeling bold? why not add some pickles? you can really add whatever ingredient you love. I used different coloured vegetables because i’m a unicorn and wanted to create a “rainbow” sushi.
I also decide to add some deliciously marinaded tofu. I made my marinade from scratch, but feel free to use your favourite store bought marinade. When you are using my marinade you can also tweak the recipe according your own taste. If you don’t like the heat just leave out the sriracha, or maybe you just don’t have black salt, don’t worry, just skip it.
I hope you all will enjoy this recipe as much as i did, now invite some friends and make some sushi.
