Holiday Veggie Roast with Oven Cranberry Sauce

November 17 2019 Golubka Kitchen 

Holiday Veggie Roast with Oven Cranberry Sauce This post was created in partnership with OXO. Today weve got a festive veggie roast recipe thats made in one oven with a lush cranberry sauce. The savoriness of the caramelized, mustard-miso roasted vegetables pairs so well with the tart, sweet, and juicy character of the cranberry sauce. Plus, the whole thing comes together in a pretty hands-off manner, with the oven doing the bulk of the work. Although Im generally excited and appreciative of any veggie side at the holiday table, I think that roasted vegetables (or any veg-centric sides in general) are often treated as an afterthought, not something that can be just as special as the main event. We are of course here to gently propose that vegetables can themselves be the main event – but even if thats not your thing, this veggie roast will be an exciting addition to your holiday table. Im particular about one thing when it comes to roasted vegetables and thats that they should be nicely cooked through, to the point of beautiful caramelization and crispy edges. Ive had so many instances of ordering roasted vegetables in restaurants, where they arrive looking beautiful, but turn out to be tough and raw on the inside upon the first bite. This is especially true for root veg of all kinds. A half-raw sweet potato or carrot is never a good thing. So its my strong belief that vegetables should be allowed plenty of time to get really, really happy in the oven. Just this little trick alone makes them taste so much better. For special occasions, I also like to roast vegetables in a mustardy sauce of some kind. Its an extra step, but it helps take the flavor to the next level and achieve that A+ caramelization. Thats what we do in this recipe. And since weve already got the oven heated up for the vegetables, we are making the cranberry sauce in the oven all at the same time. Turns out, it works just as well as the stovetop method, so why not go for the simplicity! The sauce features a luxurious mix of cranberries, green apple, and raisins, with orange juice and a kiss of cinnamon, for a beautiful balance of sweet and tart. Were very excited to partner with OXO on this holiday roasting recipe, since they make every kitchen tool youll ever need to prepare the celebratory meal of your dreams (plus much much more for your kitchen). I was so excited to upgrade to their non-stick half sheet baking pans – they are so roomy and sturdy, and perfect for roasting up big batches of vegetables without crowding them. We roast and bake a lot, so we used to go through tons of parchment paper. OXOs Silicone Baking Mat quickly took care of that problem. Its reusable, so easy to clean, and can be stored neatly rolled up in the drawer. Im so happy to replace a single use item like parchment paper with something that will last me years. They also make plenty of quality glass baking dishes, like the one that we used for the cranberry sauce, which comes with a lid so the leftovers are easy to store. OXOs pepper mill is a true dream, it grinds so smoothly and has adjustable settings for the size of your grind (we like it somewhere in the middle). I used to whisk all my sauces and dressings with a fork back in the day, but a whisk really does make the process so much quicker and more pro, and OXOs balloon whisk is a beauty. Holiday Veggie Roast with Oven Cranberry Sauce   Print Serves: 4-6 Ingredients for the mustard roasting sauce 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard 2 tablespoons white miso 2 tablespoons maple syrup 1/­­4 cup plus 2 tablespoons avocado oil or olive oil 1 teaspoon chili powder sea salt and freshly ground black pepper - to taste for the vegetables 1 small kabocha squash - seeded and sliced into wedges 1 small delicata squash - halved, seeded, and sliced into half-moons 1 lb Brussels sprouts - tough ends removed, halved 1 medium cauliflower - sliced into bite-sized florets 7-8 medium carrots or the equivalent of sweet potato (or both) - sliced into bite-sized pieces handful toasted pecans - for garnishing for the cranberry sauce 2 10 oz bags frozen or fresh cranberries - thawed if frozen 1 Granny Smith apple - peeled, cored, and finely diced 1 shallot - finely chopped 1 cup raisins (preferably golden) 1 1/­­2 cups coconut sugar 1 tablespoon fresh grated ginger 1 teaspoon cinnamon 1/­­4 cup orange juice (from about 1 medium orange) zest from 1 orange pinch of sea salt Instructions to make the mustard roasting sauce and roast the vegetables Preheat the oven to 400° F (200° C). In a medium bowl, combine the mustard, miso, maple syrup, oil, chili powder, salt, and pepper, and whisk until smooth. Taste for salt and pepper and adjust if needed. Distribute all the vegetables among two large, lined baking sheets. Pour half of the mustard sauce over one sheet of the vegetables and the rest - over the other sheet. Mix to coat well. Place the baking sheets in the oven, and roast, mixing periodically for 45-50 minutes, or until all the vegetables are tender when pierced with a knife, with caramelized edges. Serve the vegetables right away or reheat later, topped with the cranberry sauce and sprinkled with toasted pecans. to make the cranberry sauce In a 2 quart glass baking dish or a dish if a similar size, combine the cranberries, apple, shallot, raisins, coconut sugar, ginger, cinnamon, orange juice and zest, and salt. Mix well to combine. Place the baking dish in a 400° F (200° C) oven at the same time that you are roasting the vegetables (recipe above). Cook the sauce for about 45 minutes, mixing periodically. The sauce should be simmering while cooking in the oven. Let cool a bit before serving. The sauce will set up more once it cools. Store any leftover sauce in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to a week. Notes - You can easily make this recipe ahead of time. Just reheat the vegetables in the oven at 350° F (175° C) and serve the cranberry sauce right out of the fridge. - The recipe is very versatile, so you can include any of your favorite roasting vegetables in the mix. You can also include any of your favorite spices in the roasting sauce. The possibilities here are endless. 3.5.3226 The post Holiday Veggie Roast with Oven Cranberry Sauce appeared first on Golubka Kitchen.

Recipe | Orange Cardamom Chocolate Mousse (Dairy-Free!)

May 31 2019 Oh My Veggies 

Sometimes I think I have a touch of synesthesia. Example? Whenever I cook or bake with cardamom, I think of fuzzy argyle sweaters. I was quite sure this was another symptom of that pesky synesthesia. Next thing you know, I’ll start tasting numbers, right? Or hearing rainbows. (I bet they sound like ABBA!) But then I realized that the reason I associate cardamom with argyle sweaters is because cardamom sounds a lot like cardigan. (Suddenly this post got a lot less interesting, huh?) Still, there’s something very warm and fuzzy about cardamom. Maybe because it’s often used in chai or in Scandinavian breads. It’s one of those strong flavors that people tend to love or hate, but I’ve always loved it. Pairing it with orange is fairly standard, but after trying it in chocolate gelato, I became enamored with the chocolate/­­cardamom combination–that’s what inspired this Orange Cardamom Chocolate Mousse. I used my Dark Chocolate Pomegranate Mousse recipe as a starting point and added fresh orange juice and zest, as well as a heaping teaspoon full of cardamom. It’s enough of the spice to add a little warm and fuzzy to this vegan chocolate mousse without adding too much.

Cauliflower Rice with Zingy White Beans and Kale

January 26 2017 Golubka Kitchen 

Cauliflower Rice with Zingy White Beans and Kale There’s something very powerful about turning a pile of vegetables into a proper meal. The satisfaction/­­general victorious feeling that I get from finding a place for produce in our daily meals is one of the main reasons I’m attracted to cooking with plants, besides the more obvious nourishment factor. Another powerful feeling is finding a way to whip up a solid, plant-centric meal when you seemingly have no food left in the house. For me, that usually involves surveying the bottom of my crisper and pulling heavily from my pantry. That was the case with the recipe I have for you today, which took me from panicking about not having enough groceries to being well-fed and quite satisfied. I had a head of cauliflower I’d been ignoring, kale that was getting dangerously old, a bag of random Florida citrus, and mushrooms that didn’t make it into a stew (which are also optional in this recipe). The rest of the ingredients came straight from my pantry. We eat a lot of cauliflower around these parts in the fall and winter months, and at this point, everyone under my roof is pretty tired of the roasted-cauliflower-with-one-spice-or-another scenario. So cauliflower ‘rice’ is a good option when roasted cauliflower fatigue hits – it makes for a great, neutral bed for whichever ingredients you choose to serve with it and can be flavored so many different ways. It’s also a nice option for those trying to stay away from grains and looking for a sub that’s still tasty and comforting. I wanted to give a zingy, citrusy flavor kiss to the whole dish, since nature is awesome enough to supply us with the brightness that is citrus in the dark of winter. The ‘rice’ is cooked simply with onions and garlic, then finished off with some lemon juice. Served on top there’s a humble mix of sautéed kale, white beans and mushrooms if you have them. The white beans are also a base for the sauce, which involves orange juice and zest to get more of the sunny factor into the dish. This meal comes together pretty quickly, even more so if you make the cauliflower rice ahead of time. It’s a good candidate for a weekday meal, especially if you too happen to have all the ingredients on hand :) Cauliflower Rice with Zingy White Beans and Kale   Print Serves: 3-4 Ingredients for the white bean sauce 1 cup cooked white beans (butter, navy, etc.) ¼ cup + 2 tablespoons freshly squeezed orange juice (from about 2 small oranges) 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar 1½ tablespoons tamari 2 tablespoons olive oil sea salt - to taste freshly ground black pepper - to taste zest of 1 orange for the cauliflower rice with zingy white beans and kale 1 head cauliflower - roughly chopped into florets 3 tablespoons coconut oil - divided 1 shallot - diced 2 cloves garlic - minced ½ teaspoon red pepper flakes ½ cup water juice of ½ lemon sea salt - to taste freshly ground black pepper - to taste 8 oz crimini mushrooms - sliced (optional) 1 medium bunch kale - stemmed and chopped ½ tablespoon balsamic vinegar ½ tablespoon tamari 1 cup cooked white beans (butter, navy, etc.) white bean sauce (from above) Instructions to make the white bean sauce Combine all the ingredients, except orange zest, in a blender until smooth. Mix in the orange zest on the lowest blender speed setting or by hand with a spoon. to make the cauliflower rice with zingy white beans and kale Make the cauliflower rice. Divide your roughly chopped cauliflower florets into two even portions. Place the first portion into a food processor and pulse a few times, until you have pieces that are approximately the size of rice grains. Take care not to over-chop, you dont want your cauliflower to turn to mush. Transfer to a large bowl and repeat with the second half. Heat 2 tablespoons of coconut oil in a large sauté pan on medium heat. Add the shallot and sauté for 5 minutes, until soft and translucent. Add the garlic and red pepper flakes and sauté for another 2 minutes until fragrant. Add the chopped cauliflower, then mix in the water, lemon juice, salt and pepper. Cook for 8 minutes until the liquid absorbs and the rice becomes cooked but not mushy. Take care not to overcook. Transfer to a large bowl, keep warm and covered. Wipe the pan clean with a paper towel. Warm the remaining 1 tablespoon coconut oil over medium heat. Add the mushrooms, mix, then let them sit for about a minute to start releasing liquid. Add a pinch of salt to the mushrooms, mix and sauté for another 4 minutes, until all the liquid released by the mushrooms evaporates. If not using mushrooms, proceed with the kale. Add the kale, balsamic and tamari. Mix and sauté until the kale starts wilting. Add the white beans and let them warm through until the kale is completely wilted. Add the sauce, starting with ¼ - ½ cup and tasting as you go. Add more if needed. Let the sauce warm through and turn off the heat. Serve the kale and white beans over the cauliflower rice, garnished with more orange zest and more sauce, if desired. 3.5.3226 You might also like...

Red Cabbage with Orange & Apple

Add the onion and garlic and sauté for 4-6 minutes, or until the onion begins to soften. Add the red cabbage ribbons, sprinkle with a little salt, stir and cover. Cook the cabbage for about 2 minutes, or until the cabbage begins to soften. Uncover the pot and coat the cabbage with the vinegar, honey, bay leaf, coriander, tamari or soy sauce and chili powder. Stir thoroughly, turn down heat to medium-low and cover again and cook 4-6 minutes. Uncover and pour in the orange juice, orange pulp and apple cubes. Cook about 10 minutes more, or until the cabbage has reached desired tenderness. Taste for seasoning and adjust to preference. Serve hot or warm, sprinkled with freshly grated ginger and black pepper. Garnish with sliced oranges, if using, and enjoy!

Beetroot Almond Soup with roasted chickpeas

December 23 2016 Veganpassion 

Beetroot Almond Soup with roasted chickpeas As a child beetroot was awful to me. Earthy and red, that had to keep off my plate. Since I'm a vegan my taste definitely changed. I'm using beetroot all the time and I love it. If grated in a salad, in a cream sauce, roasted with finger-shaped potato dumpling, in a risotto or in a dessert. The colour just makes me smile. In the winter I love earthy vegetables like pumpkin and potatos. The beetroot just fits perfectly into a colorful menu. Before you know it the nodule has turned into a soup. I ate it all even though I wanted to keep something for my boyfriend...oh well, next time :-) Makes 4 portions. Ingredients: 2 beetroot (700 g) 1 onion 3 tbsp. olive oil 1 small piece ginger 2 tsp. vegetable broth, powder 100 ml orange juice 5 cloves 1/­­2 tsp. cilantro seeds, grounded 1/­­4 tsp. cinnamon 1 can (400 g) coconut milk 0,8-1 l water 1 tbsp. almond butter salt, pepper 4 tbsp. non-dairy cream 1 tsp. thyme, dried orange zest Peel the beetroot and the onion and cut them into cubes. Stew in olive oil until the onion start roasting. Cut ginger into small pieces and add it to the vegetable broth. Deglaze it with orange juice.

No-Recipe Winter Slaw with Dreamy Orange Tahini Dressing + Selling Our Home w/ my Dream Kitchen

November 28 2018 Golubka Kitchen 

No-Recipe Winter Slaw with Dreamy Orange Tahini Dressing + Selling Our Home w/ my Dream Kitchen This may or may not be news to you, but a really good slaw is easy to make when you’ve got the foundation of nicely shredded vegetables and great dressing. Come fall/­­winter, and all my butter lettuce and baby green salad cravings get replaced with colorful slaw cravings. Slaw just feels more suitable to winter to me, probably since I can make it with more seasonally appropriate vegetables like winter greens, cabbage, grated raw squash, carrots, apple, etc. Nature tends to provide us with exactly what we need during different times of the year, and I always try to listen to that by taking advantage of what’s in season. It’s also just exciting to switch it up. So, winter slaw will be taking the place of other salads on our table for the next few months. Maybe you want to join in and give it a try as well? Or maybe you’re a slaw expert already. What this post is really about is the orange tahini dressing that will make any shredded raw vegetables shine, and also a little bit about the sad yet exciting fact that we are selling our home with my dream kitchen. So, the dressing is a dreamy combination of fresh orange juice, tahini, garlic, and other flavor stars like mustard and miso, as well as some toasted poppy seeds. I’ve been on a real poppy seed kick lately, and I find that they add the most satisfying, tiny firework-like pop (and a nutty flavor) to an otherwise smooth concoction. What I’ve decided to do here is to give a recipe for the dressing, as well as a non-recipe for a wintery slaw. The slaw can be composed of almost any vegetables that taste good raw. The key is to shred them really well, since tiny, delicate ribbons of veg really make the whole experience that much more pleasurable. A sharp knife works for this, but having a mandoline with different blade attachments is especially helpful in this case. Add in some pomegranate jewels or something crunchy like toasted or candied nuts/­­seeds, and you’re in for a really great salad component to whatever other cozy winter fare you’re enjoying at the moment. In other news, we are in the process of trying to sell our home. If you’ve been following along here for a while, you may have seen my post about the kitchen renovation that we were able to finally pull off after fifteen years of living with a typical 90s Florida kitchen (code for: not very functional or aesthetically pleasing). We put so much physical and emotional work into this renovation, and I ended with my absolute dream kitchen and living room (which compose an entire 2nd floor of the condo). So, why are we selling it? There are multiple reasons that make sense for our family. Mostly, we are ready for a change of location, though it will be so sad to leave the place we’ve called home for seventeen or so years. If I could pick everything up and move it with us wherever we end up, I would. But I can’t! So, if you or someone you know are looking for a home on a very peaceful island in the Tampa Bay region of Florida, a five minute drive from a national park beach, close to everything, with renovations that were done with lots of unique materials and even more love, click here to check out the listing and please help us spread the word :) Here are some more home-related links: – The Kitchen Renovation – The Best Way to Repurpose Vintage Fruit Crates on The Kitchn – Paloma’s Room on Apartment Therapy (from 2010!) No-Recipe Winter Slaw with Dreamy Orange Tahini Dressing   Print Ingredients for the orange tahini dressing 1½ tablespoons poppy seeds juice from 2 navel oranges ½ cup tahini 1 tablespoon dijon mustard 1 teaspoon miso 1 clove of garlic - roughly chopped 2 tablespoons olive oil 1 tablespoon maple syrup or honey, or more to taste splash of apple cider vinegar sea salt freshly ground black pepper splash of water for thinning for the slaw - use any combination of the following kale - finely shredded with a knife pinch of sea salt - for massaging the kale red cabbage - shredded with a knife or mandolin carrot - shredded or ribboned raw butternut squash - shredded raw sweet potato - shredded raw brussels sprouts - shredded raw beet - shredded apple - shredded pear - ribboned or shredded fennel - shredded pomegranate seeds toasted or candied nuts/­­seeds Instructions to make the orange tahini dressing Toast the poppy seeds on a dry skillet over high heat. Remove from the pan as soon as the seeds become fragrant and start popping. These toast up fast, so take care not to burn them. Combine the orange juice, tahini, dijon, miso, garlic, olive oil, maple syrup, apple cider vinegar, salt, pepper, and water in an upright blender and blend until smooth. The consistency of the dressing should be creamy but not too thick. Thin it out with more water if needed. Taste for salt and pepper and adjust if necessary. This recipe makes extra. This dressing is excellent on pretty much anything :) to make the slaw Prepare a large salad bowl. If using kale, place it in the bowl along with a pinch of salt and massage with your hands for a few minutes to break it down a bit. This will make your kale chewing experience so much more pleasant! Add all the other vegetables you are using to the salad bowl, along with the pomegranate seeds (if using), and candied nuts/­­seeds. Mix well to combine. Add the orange tahini dressing bit by bit and mix, until the slaw is well dressed. Enjoy right away. Keep the dressing and the vegetables separate if making ahead. The fully dressed slaw is best the day of, though it will keep in the refrigerator for a few days. 3.5.3226 You might also like...

Spicy Bok Choy with Noodles and Peanuts

December 4 2017 Meatless Monday 

Wilted bok choy and peanuts fill a flavorful, savory broth alongside chewy noodles for a hearty one-dish meal.

Serves 4 - 1 teaspoon sesame oil - 1 tablespoon peanut oil - 1 red onion, sliced - 2 cloves garlic, minced - 1 tablespoon peanut butter - 3 tablespoons soy ginger dressing - 1 tablespoon reduced-sodium soy sauce - 2 tablespoons orange juice - red pepper flakes, to taste - 1 (12 ounces) package fresh rice noodles - 6 (6-ounce) heads baby bok choy - 1/­­4 cup peanuts Place the oils in a large skillet or wok over medium-high heat.

Asparagus with Orange Vinaigrette

May 1 2017 Meatless Monday 

Grilling the asparagus brings a charred earthy flavor to balance both the sweet citrus segments and the acidity of the vinaigrette. So gather round the BBQ and celebrate spring by chowing down on asparagus tossed with blood orange and shallot. This recipe comes to us from Kristina of FormerChef.com. Serves 6 For the grilled asparagus: - 1 bunch of asparagus, with 2” trimmed off the bottom - 2 teaspoons olive oil - salt and pepper, to taste For the blood orange vinaigrette: - 3 blood oranges - 1 shallot, sliced thin1 tablespoons white wine vinegar - 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil - salt and pepper, to taste To grill the asparagus: Toss the asparagus in a bowl with the 2 teaspoons olive oil. Grill over moderate heat for about 3-4 minutes on each side, or until asparagus is slightly charred and tender-crisp. Remove the asparagus from the grill and put on a plate. Season with salt and pepper to taste. To make the blood orange vinaigrette: Cut one of the blood oranges in half and squeeze the juice into a small bowl. Using a sharp paring knife, cut the skin and the white pith off the remaining two oranges. Over a bowl, cut in between the membranes of each segment to remove the segments from the orange. Reserve the excess blood orange juice as it falls into the bowl. After removing the orange segments squeeze what’s left of the orange to get all the juice out. Set aside. In another bowl, whisk together the sliced shallots, vinegar and olive oil. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Gently stir in the blood orange juice and segments. To complete the grilled asparagus: Spoon the vinaigrette over the grilled asparagus. Enjoy either warm or at room temperature.

Upside Down Citrus Polenta Cake

March 8 2017 Golubka Kitchen 

Upside Down Citrus Polenta CakeThis post was created in partnership with North Coast. March is tricky. It’ll throw out a few of those luxuriously warm days in a row, which cause collective memory loss about the fact that it’s still winter, and you’ll suddenly see a few dazed people out on the street wearing shorts. And then it gets cold again, and it might even snow soon, and the warm coat you so optimistically tucked away into your closet has to come back out. By this time, you might also be really tired of root vegetables and stews, and all things earthy and hearty. I am. Thankfully, there is citrus. Bright, sweet, lush, like little suns in fruit form. I’m continually amazed by the variety of citrus fruit available at the grocery store this time of year. Based on my last scan of the citrus section, there are at least three types of oranges, the blood variety being the star, about as many kinds of grapefruits (red, pink, white), and don’t even get me started on the numerous hybrids, smooth-skinned, wrinkled and everything in between. I wanted to make a treat that really captures that brightness and abundance, so an upside down cake was in order. It looks involved to those not in the know, but it’s actually the easiest kind of cake to make. For the cake itself, I wanted a batter that would come out of the oven moist and fluffy, and I aimed for gluten-free and vegan, since that is what most of you guys seem to enjoy. There was a large jar of polenta in my pantry – there always is, since my eight year old is a polenta fiend – and I had the idea to go the corncake route. I’m really happy I did, and the cake was gone within a day as proof of its success. It’s sweetened with dates, apple sauce and orange juice, so nothing too sugary here. The mellow sweetness and crumbly texture of the cake combines really well with the fragrant, bright notes of the blanket of citrus on top. I like keeping the skin on the citrus slices, since its oils contribute lovely, complex notes to the overall flavor, but if you or your kids are not fond of a little bitterness, you can cut the skin off the slices. One of the main challenges of vegan baking is coming up with the correct combination of ingredients for a moist batter that doesn’t fall apart, without eggs. I’ve found apple sauce to be the essential ‘secret’ ingredient that makes all of the above possible, while adding a bit of its subtle sweetness to the mix. It also seamlessly integrates into sweet baked goods, so you won’t be tasting apple sauce in the finished product. Plus, it’s a healthy, clean, plant-based ingredient, and we all love those here. I was excited to work with North Coast on this recipe, since their apple sauce is the best I’ve ever tasted and contains no preservatives and no added sugar, all the while being made with real, organic, non-GMO ingredients. Their sauce tastes incredibly fresh and crisp, and they offer well-considered flavor options, like plain, berry, apricot, pumpkin spice and more, made with all U.S. grown fruit. Besides this cake, I’ve been using North Coast apple sauce in so much of my cooking lately, from these brownies, to my morning oats, atop a cup of coconut yogurt and even in smoothies. The brand also offers apple cider vinegar, cider and juice, so there is a definite mastery of wholesome apple products, which I absolutely love. Upside Down Citrus Polenta Cake   Print Serves: one 9-inch cake Ingredients for the cake 1 cup non-GMO polenta 1 cup brown rice flour 1 teaspoon baking soda 1 teaspoon baking powder sea salt zest of 2 organic oranges 10-12 soft Medjool dates - pitted and soaked in warm water for 10 minutes, soaking liquid reserved 1 cup freshly squeezed orange juice ⅓ cup apple sauce 2 tablespoons coconut oil, plus more for oiling the pan 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar 2-3 oranges - sliced ½-inch thick (You can use a variety of different kinds for a more colorful presentation. I used navel, cara cara and blood oranges.) Instructions to make the cake Preheat oven to 375° F (190° C). Cut out a parchment paper circle to cover the bottom of a 9-inch spring form or cake pan. Thoroughly oil the sides of the pan with coconut oil. In a large bowl, combine the polenta, brown rice flour, baking soda, baking powder, a pinch of salt, and orange zest, and mix thoroughly. Reserve 1/­­2 cup of the date soaking water and add it to an upright blender along with the dates and orange juice, blend until smooth. Add the apple sauce, coconut oil and apple cider vinegar and pulse to combine. Pour the wet mixture into the bowl with the dry ingredients and stir to just combine. Arrange the orange slices to cover the parchment paper-lined bottom of your pan and pour the batter over them. Even the batter out with a spoon. Lift and drop the pan gently a couple of times to get rid of any possible air bubbles. Bake for 40-45 minutes, or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean. Let cool for at least 20 minutes before inverting the cake onto a plate or a cake stand and peeling off the parchment paper. Slice and serve with plain yogurt or coconut yogurt. 3.5.3226 You might also like...

Beetroot Soup with Roasted Chickpeas

December 23 2016 Veganpassion 

Beetroot Soup with Roasted Chickpeas As a child beetroot was awful to me. Earthy and red, that had to keep off my plate. Since I'm a vegan my taste definitely changed. I'm using beetroot all the time and I love it. If grated in a salad, in a cream sauce, roasted with finger-shaped potato dumpling, in a risotto or in a dessert. The colour just makes me smile. In the winter I love earthy vegetables like pumpkin and potatos. The beetroot just fits perfectly into a colorful menu. Before you know it the nodule has turned into a soup. I ate it all even though I wanted to keep something for my boyfriend...oh well, next time :-) Makes 4 portions. Ingredients: 2 beetroot (700 g) 1 onion 3 tbsp. olive oil 1 small piece ginger 2 tsp. vegetable broth, powder 100 ml orange juice 5 cloves 1/­­2 tsp. cilantro seeds, grounded 1/­­4 tsp. cinnamon 1 can (400 g) coconut milk 0,8-1 l water 1 tbsp. almond butter salt, pepper 4 tbsp. non-dairy cream 1 tsp. thyme, dried orange zest Peel the beetroot and the onion and cut them into cubes. Stew in olive oil until the onion start roasting. Cut ginger into small pieces and add it to the vegetable broth. Deglaze it with orange juice. Add cloves, cilantro, cinnamon, coconut milk and half of the water. Let it cook with closed lid for 10 minutes than add almond butter. Mash everything and taste it. For the roasted chickpeas: 1 can chickpeas 1 tbsp. olive oil 1/­­2 garlic paste 3/­­4 tsp. sweet paprika powder 3/­­4 tsp. curcuma powder seasalt, pepper Pour off the chickpeas and mix them with olive oil, garlic, paprika powder and curcuma powder. Flavour it with salt and pepper. Bake at 200°C (392°F) upper-/­­lower heat for 20 minutes. Turn them around once a while so they don't get burned. Serve the soup with dab of cream, some thyme, orange zest and put the chickpeas on top. Enjoy the recipe!
