The Spring Supper Salad

April 23 2020 My New Roots 

The Spring Supper Salad Greetings, friends! For fun I am resurrecting one of the blog posts I wrote back in 2010 – a warm butter bean salad bowl, garlic-roasted carrots and wild rice. Why I am re-publishing a decade-old recipe? Well, for one I thought that there are a bunch of new followers around here who have never even seen this delight (hello, by the way)! Second, most of you who have been here since the beginning may have forgotten about it. Third, its the ideal pantry staple recipe. And lastly, because its very, very delicious. Creamy butter beans, golden garlic-y carrots coins, chewy wild rice, crisp and bright pickled onions, silky kale, and refreshing dill, all coming together with a lick-your-lips mustardy dressing that is divine on just about everything – this salad and beyond. I’ve also re-named it the Spring Supper Salad because it’s the perfect seasonal transition meal (yea baby, it’s definitely a meal) incorporating both winter and spring produce and flavours, as we make our way into the light of the upswing! Hooray! This recipe brings back so many memories for me. It was around this time that I had been working in restaurants in Copenhagen for about 3 years. I loved my job, and could hardly believe that someone actually paid me to spend all day in a hot, cramped kitchen, cooking a dozen new dishes every day without a menu or recipes – definitely still in the honeymoon phase. I felt confident in the food I was making, applying my deep understanding of nutrition to recipe development, and I used every day to push myself creatively, keenly aware of how fast I was learning and growing. I was certainly in the vortex, and it was a very exciting time of my life.  I started my shift around 8 am, and the majority of my dishes needed to be ready at 12 noon when we opened the doors for lunch. This is a relatively short window of time to pump out 200 servings of anything, but after some years, I developed short cuts that would deliver a lot of flavour in a hurry. One of these short cuts, was garlic oil – the first thing I would make after tying my apron strings, that would act as a marinade, a roasting medium, and a base for soups, stews, dressings and sauces for the entire day. In fact, I dont think that there were many dishes coming off of my station that didnt have garlic in them back then (such an easy way to make things taste good!). This oil sat on my bench and it got tossed into all the things, and all the people kept coming back for more.  One thing I loved using the garlic oil on, was winter veggies. I could toss them in said liquid gold, crank up the oven, and in half an hour, Id have a blistered, glistening pile of roasted rainbow roots to serve, only needing a squeeze of lemon juice and a smattering of fresh herbs to make it presentable. Who wouldnt want to dive into that?! Plus, it was cheap. Like most restaurants, we were always looking at the bottom line and how we could make even the most humble foods taste exquisite. Garlic oil was the ticket.  At the restaurant, my signature move was combining veggies, grains, and beans in exciting ways (which was very novel at the time!) so this dish emerged from a commercial ovens worth of garlic-roasted carrots needing a home. With some tender and creamy butter beans coming off the stove, and some day-old, steamed wild rice calling out to me from the fridge, this combination came together very organically, taking the varied textures, colours, and flavours into consideration.  The secret to this dish is the consistency of the garlic in the oil. Different from mincing garlic and adding it to oil, here you must must must grate it or blend it up together so it becomes almost paste-like. This way, the garlic goes everywhere the oil does, and evenly caramelizes into the most divine, delectable gold, thats mellow and sweet and roast-y. You will not hate it. Stop! Fiber time. Fiber is probably the least sexy and alluring of all the nutrients we hear about. Its all about Protein! Fat! And if you hear about carbohydrates, its probably something ignorant and unfair (I really hate jerks picking on macronutrients, back off!). Fiber seems pretty boring and something only your grandmother cares about, so why do you need to?   One reason that plant-rich diets are so health-sustaining, is not only due to their high fiber content, but their potential for fiber diversity. In the past, fiber has been broken down into two main categories: soluble and insoluble. Whats new and exciting in this field of research, is that we can see that fiber can be broken down into several more categories (viscous, non-viscous, non-starch polysaccharides, resistant starches etc.) each one bringing forth the potential for diversified food sources for our gut bacteria. In short, the greater the diversity of plants we eat, the greater the diversity of our microbiome.  Why does this matter? Because our gut is the foundation for our overall health. If weve got a wide range of troops on the front lines of our immune system, the better our chances are for not just surviving, but thriving. The fiber we eat also feeds our good bacteria, and specific types of fiber feed specific types of bacteria. Enjoy eating the widest variety of plants you can, to ensure that youre supporting the widest variety of good guys in your digestive system. They will repay you in spades Im tellin ya!  The foods with the highest amounts of fiber are beans and lentils, vegetables, fruits, grains, and nuts and seeds (remember that there is no fiber in animal-based foods). Different proportions of soluble, insoluble fiber, as well as viscous /­­ non-viscous fiber, and fermentable fiber can be found in all of these food groups, it is highly recommended that you eat from each of them. And instead of focusing on grams (the minimum daily recommended intake is a measly 25g, not that were talking about that…), we need to focus on diversity. Enjoy as many plant-based foods as you can, and experience the terrain of your body slowly begin to change. Everything comes back to the gut, and not just what you are eating, but what your gut-bacteria are eating too. With this dish, youll be feeding those good guys with fiber from six different plants! Talk about a solid mix. Beans, whole grains, 3 different veggies, plus herbs, add up to serious fiber diversity. Good, good, good fiberations! The fun thing about revisiting this recipe, was seeing if there was anything I would change this time around. I have learned so much and grown incredibly as a cook in the past ten years, so I was surprised that I didnt have many tweaks to make. The only two things I felt this salad needed was a dark leafy green and a pickle – classic Sarah B moves at this point! Since we still dont have any spring greens happening yet, I decided kale was the winner, and obviously it needed to be massaged! I turned the red onions in the original recipe into a quick pickle, as this is another indispensable kitchen technique that Ive learned since posting the first time around. This salad-meal has everything you need and crave from a single bowl: its super flavourful and filling, with all of the textures in the mix to satisfy your noshing desires. The elements can all be made separately, even on separate days, if it seems like too many things to cook at once for a single dish. If you go the rollover route, boil the beans and rice a day or so before (and make extra while youre at it, because meal prep is for winners), and pickle the onions up to a week ahead. The kale can be prepped /­­ massaged a day or so in advance, but the carrots should be roasted right before serving.  If you dont have butter beans, any white bean would work (navy, cannellini, Great Northern, or baby lima beans are some varieties) and if you want to switch up the grain, any kind of rice would work – even millet or quinoa would be delicious! Instead of carrots, use any root veg you have kicking around your crisper: beets, sweet potato, turnip, or winter squash would taste great in the garlic oil. And if dill isnt the herb of your dreams, try substituting it with flat-leaf parsley, cilantro, basil, or tarragon.      Print recipe     Butter Bean, Wild Rice, and Garlic-Roasted Carrot Salad Serves 6-8 Ingredients: 1/­­2 cup wild rice 1 cup dried butter beans 4-5 medium carrots 4 cloves garlic 2 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil 1 bunch fresh dill sea salt freshly ground black pepper a handful of quick-pickled red onion (recipe follows) 1 batch massaged kale (recipe follows) Dressing: 1 Tbsp. Dijon mustard 1 Tbsp. maple syrup 2 Tbsp. raw apple cider vinegar 3 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil pinch of sea salt Directions: 1. Soak beans for 8 hours or overnight. Drain, rinse well and cover with fresh water. Add a teaspoon of sea salt. Bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer, and cook until beans are soft - about 45 minutes. 2. While the beans are cooking, rinse the wild rice well, drain, and put in a pot. Cover rice with 1.5 cups fresh water, add a couple pinches of sea salt, bring to a boil, and reduce to simmer. Cook until rice is chewy-tender - about 45 minutes. You will know the rice is done when the grains open up to reveal their purple-gray inner portion. 3. Preheat the oven to 400F. While the rice is cooking, wash the carrots and slice them on the diagonal into coins, place on a baking sheet. Grate the garlic with a microplane and combine it with the oil. Pour over carrots and toss to coat. Sprinkle with salt. Place in the oven and roast, turning them a few times over the course of 15-20 minutes. The carrots should be cooked but not mushy - al dente! 4. Make the dressing by combining all ingredients together, shake well. 5. Now all the elements come together: Drain and rinse beans in cool water to stop the cooking process. Pour dressing over warm beans and toss. Let sit for 5 minutes or so. Drain the rice if any water remains, cool slightly. Mix with beans. Toss in the carrots, scraping the pan to add garlic oil to the remainder of the ingredients. Throw in the massaged kale, as many pickled onions as you fancy, and an explosion of dill. Cracked black pepper too, if it’s calling to you. 6. Serve immediately and enjoy. Quick-Pickled Red Onion Ingredients: 3/­­4 cup /­­ 175ml raw apple cider vinegar 1/­­2 cup /­­ 125ml water 2 tsp. fine sea salt 3 Tbsp. pure maple syrup 1 medium red onion, thinly sliced Directions: 1. Combine the vinegar, water, salt, and maple syrup in a large jar. Stir to dissolve the salt and syrup. Add the onions to the jar and put them in the fridge. Enjoy after at least 30 minutes, keeps for up to two weeks.  Massaged Kale Ingredients: 3 cups /­­ 90g shredded curly or dino kale Juice of 1/­­2 lemon 2 tsp. extra virgin olive oil 2 pinches of fine sea salt, plus more as needed Directions: 1. In a large bowl, combine the shredded kale, lemon juice, olive oil, and salt. Using your hands, rub and squeeze the kale together as if you are giving it a massage, until the kale leaves are dark green and tender, about 2 minutes. Enjoy immediately in the salad, or store leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for up to five days.  I really hope you enjoy this delicious and satisfying meal soon. These days are asking so much of us, and I continue to come back to the kitchen for grounding, clarity, and connection. There are no answers, just presence. And in that presence I find myself over a cutting board, being grateful for just what is front of me, slicing a carrot, then another, saying thank you for simple things. Love to you all. Stay well and safe out there. xo, Sarah B The post The Spring Supper Salad appeared first on My New Roots.

In Case of Quarantine: Cook the Pantry

March 10 2020 Robin Robertson's Global Vegan Kitchen 

In Case of Quarantine: Cook the Pantry With a possible pandemic on the horizon, I’ve stocked up on toilet paper and hand sanitizer — just in case.  But I’ve also stocked up on enough food supplies to get us through the next couple of months, in case of quarantine. I’ve been using the tips and recipes in my book, Cook the Pantry, to dictate my grocery list and keep my pantry full if the situation worsens.  The quick and easy recipes in Cook the Pantry use mostly items from your pantry and freezer (along with some optional fresh produce, if you have it on hand). One of my favorite recipes from the book is the Artichoke Muffaleta Po Boys.  It’s the best of two popular New Orleans culinary icons joining forces to create the ultimate sandwich made with artichokes and a piquant olive relish. Here’s the recipe: Artichoke Muffaleta Po Boys Makes 2 servings Recipe from Cook the Pantry (C) 2015 by Robin Robertson. Photo by Annie Oliverio.

Top 10 New Vegan Restaurants (U.S.)

November 13 2019 Happy Cow veggie blog 

As vegans, there’s no denying it: we’ve got our favorite spots to which we stick. However, with more omnivorous establishments expanding their menus and some even turning plant-based, entirely, it seems there’s new places to try daily. What’s a humble vegan to do? Don’t worry; We’ve narrowed down the newest hot spots to add to your list – and they’re 100% vegan.                       Somebody People - Denver, CO [opened September 2019] With much anticipation from the Denver community, co-owners of the former catering pop-up Scam Likely (Tricia & Samuel Maher) opened the doors to their brick & mortar this year. Somebody People, a coined name from David Bowie lyrics, boasts Mediterranean-influenced, plant-based wining & dining – and has a zero-waste initiative, to boot. The restaurant offers brunch and dinner services with dishes such as “mushies on toast” (local bread with house made almond ricotta, sage, and hazelnuts) to “funghetto” (house made pasta served with Somebody People’s carrot bolognese.)

This recipe may seem a little elaborate, but you can easily double the recipe and make another dish that you can freeze for future use. You can also make the cheese preparation ahead of time, reserve it in the fridge, and use it to stuff shells in the future. The shells are easier to serve than lasagna (since they come apart) making this recipe ideal for a shared supper or buffet. Both children and adults will love these three-cheeses stuffed shells!

Savory Yogurt Bowl + London

June 1 2017 Green Kitchen Stories 

Savory Yogurt Bowl + London We love yogurt in our family*. The unsweetened, thick, creamy and tangy kind. We enjoy yogurt for breakfast (with fruit) and sometimes dessert (with dates + chocolate + nuts). We top our soups with yogurt, we add it to smoothies and ice pops and we also dress our salads with it (Isac likes to dress himself with it as well). Yogurt works remarkably well both with sweet and savory flavors. And yet, the thought of making a yogurt bowl with savory toppings instead of sweet, had never struck us before. But as we were playing around with this crunchy cucumber and melon salad with spiced chickpeas, we (and with we, I humbly mean ME, MYSELF and I - as in, not David) had the simple idea to put them on a bed of yogurt instead of doing the usual yogurt dressing. In theory, it’s more or less the same thing but in reality it’s so much better. The warm, rich and spicy chickpeas on a bed of cold, thick and tangy yogurt, with the addition of a fresh salad with lots of crunch. It’s simple but yet so very good. And quick too. I’m sure there are plenty of savory yogurt bowls all over internet, but now they are also in our kitchen. *David and Isac are actually intolerant to dairy but yogurt is their weak spot. We buy oat yogurt for them but David often chooses a day of stomach ache just to enjoy a bowl of plain yogurt. And Isac has literally been caught with his hand in the yogurt jar more than once. Coconut yogurt has a fantastic taste and consistency but is simply too expensive to enjoy more than as an occasional treat (very keen on giving Ashley’s versions a try though!). Hey hey hey, wait a sec. This is David acting as proofreader today and I just noted Luise’s attempt at hijacking my idea. This recipe = my idea. Just wanted to make that clear. I’ll give the word back to her now. The salad is super quick as you just need to chop everything up. We found that crunchy vegetables like cucumber, celery, sturdy roman lettuce and radishes work really well here, with the avocado and melon adding softness and sweetness. The yogurt is, well, just yogurt. It needs to be quite thick to hold up the topping - our preference is Greek yogurt but choose whatever you prefer. The only thing that needs a little more preparation and heat are the spiced chickpeas. Even if the ingredient list looks long, it’s simply spices, oil and chickpeas and the result tastes way better than just using plain chickpeas. They have a rich, spicy and slightly nutty flavor which works so well with the freshness from the yogurt and the crunchy and sweet salad. VARIATIONS There are plenty of ways to vary this recipe and we’re going to leave you with a few ideas. - Whisk some creamy goat’s cheese into the yogurt. It will dissolve, become smooth and give the yogurt a more mature flavor. - If you don’t have all the spices at home for the chickpeas, use what you find. A bread spice mix works great along with a little cayenne. A turmeric or curry version would be interesting too. - You can skip the salad and pour the yogurt into small sealable jars with spiced chickpeas on top. Store them in the fridge for a quick snack. - Vegans can of course use a vegan yogurt option or simply settle for the salad with warm chickpeas stirred through. - Roasting the chickpeas in the oven together with eggplant or pumpkin could be amazing on top of the yogurt as well. Let us know if you have any other favorite variations on savory yogurt bowls and we can include them in this list. Savory Yogurt Bowl with Spicy Chickpeas & Cucumber Salad Serves 4, or 2 very hungry persons Cucumber & Melon Salad 1 cucumber 1 small (or 1/­­2 regular) melon (we used Piel de Sapo but honeydew would also work) 1 spring onion 2 celery stalks 10-15 fresh mint leaves 1 avocado 6 radishes 1/­­2 roman lettuce 1/­­2 lemon, juice 1 tbsp cold-pressed olive oil Spiced warm chickpeas 2 tbsp sunflower seeds 1 tbsp sesame seeds 2 tsp fennel seeds  1 tsp coriander seeds 1 tsp cardamom seeds 1/­­2 tsp sea salt 1/­­2 tsp ground cayenne 1/­­2 tsp ground cumin 1/­­2 tsp ground paprika powder 1/­­4 cup – 1/­­2 cup cold-pressed olive oil 1 x 14 oz /­­ 400 g can cooked chickpeas, drained and rinsed For serving 2 cups plain full-fat Greek yogurt  For the cucumber & melon salad:  Wash all produce. Cut cucumber and melon in large bite-size pieces. Trim and finely slice spring onion, celery and mint leaves. Cut the avocado in half and remove the stone, then cut into cubes. Trim the radishes and thinly slice them. And chop the roman lettuce. Place all prepared ingredients in a mixing bowl, squeeze over lemon juice, drizzle with olive oil and a little salt, give it a good toss and set aside. For the spiced warm chickpeas:  Add all seeds and spices (except for the ground spices) to a dry skillet, heat gently for a couple of minutes while stirring. When the spices starts to pop and smell fragrant, they’re done. Pour into a mortar and give them a few bashes with the pestle (alternatively on a cutting board and use the back of a chef’s knife). Transfer the seeds and spices back to the skillet. Now add oil (start with the lesser amount and add more later on if it looks dry), ground spices  and chickpeas and heat on low temperature for 2-3 minutes. Stir to combine. When the chickpeas are warm and covered in spices and seeds, remove from the heat. Dollop the yogurt into four bowls. Use the back of a spoon to smooth it out. Arrange the salad on one side of the yogurt and the spiced warm chickpea on the other side. Drizzle a little extra oil on top. Enjoy immediately while the chickpeas are still warm. ********* LONDON + BATH In all my excitement over a simple bowl of yogurt, I almost forgot to mention that we are coming to London and Bath next week for a couple of book events. We’re very excited and can’t wait to meet some of you! We’re having a supper club at Grace Belgravia on Monday 5 June, 7-10 pm. More info here. We’ll do talk and Q&A at Whole Foods Market in Kensington on Wednesday 7 June, 6.30 pm. More info and tickets here. We’ll also do a talk and cooking demo at Topping & Company Booksellers in Bath on Friday 9 June, 7.30 pm. More info and tickets here. Finally, we’re having a hands on cooking class at Bertinet Kitchen in Bath on Saturday 10 June, 10 am. Tickets here (only one left). Big love!

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. 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!

Summer Aubergine Rolls

May 24 2016 Green Kitchen Stories 

Summer Aubergine Rolls Hi friends, today we are sharing a dinner recipe that we prepared over the weekend. Some of you might recognize these aubergine rolls as they are a summery version of our Involtini di Melanzane recipe. It has always been one of our favorites and there is also a winter version of it in our Green Kitchen Travels cookbook. This one has a brighter and tangier filling than the original and is baked without the tomato sauce. The filling is made with a mix of asparagus, rhubarb, pesto, pistachios, feta cheese, raisins and cooked quinoa. It is a really delicious filling that could also be served on its own (but it looks so much more impressive tucked inside the aubergine rolls). We served the rolls with a green salad drizzled with a little yogurt dressing. It was totally delicious and would be quite an impressive dish to do if you have friends coming over for dinner. I know we always say this, but do save some time (and effort) and let everybody get involved and help roll. Cooking and eating is so much more fun when the experience is shared. We also have some news about upcoming events. - First of all, we are going to Lisbon this coming Sunday (29 May) to promote the Portuguese edition of our first book. We will be doing some interviews and a talk and book signing in the Praça Leya at the Lisbon book fair. The talk is at 7 pm. Wed love to meet some of our Portuguese readers there, so please come by and chat with us! - We also wanted to share some more dates for our exciting launch of Green Kitchen Smoothies in London. We will be doing a supper club and Q&A with Mae Deli x Deliciously Ella on Tuesday 7th June and tickets can be booked here (only a few left!). We will also be talking at the Good Roots Festival on Saturday 11th June but unfortunately that is already sold out. There will be one or two more opportunities to get your books signed and have a chat and we will announce those as soon as we have more info. Summer Aubergine Rolls stuffed with Quinoa, Rhubarb & Asparagus 2 large aubergines, thinly sliced (approx. 24 slices in total) olive oil, to brush sea salt 2 rhubarb stalks, thinly sliced 10 asparagus spears, thinly sliced 1/­­2 cup /­­ 100 g uncooked quinoa or 2 cups cooked quinoa (any color) 1 cup /­­ 250 ml water 1 large pinch sea salt 1 cup pesto dressing (see end note) 50 g shelled unsalted pistachio nuts, coarsely chopped 150 g feta cheese, crumbled 1 handful raisins Preheat the oven to 200°C/­­400°F. Arrange the aubergine slices (not overlapping) on two baking trays lined with baking paper. Use a pastry brush to brush each slice with a thin layer of olive oil on both sides. Sprinkle with sea salt and bake in the oven for 13-15 minutes or until very soft and golden. Thinly slice the rhubarb and asparagus and spread out on another baking tray lined with baking paper, drizzle with a little olive oil and sprinkle with sea salt. Place in the oven and bake for 5-8-minutes, or until soft and juicy. Meanwhile cook the quinoa. Place rinsed quinoa in a saucepan, add water and bring to a boil. Lower the heat immediately and simmer for about 15 minutes, set aside. When slightly cooled, stir through 3/­­4 of the pesto dressing, 3/­­4 of the chopped pistachios nuts, 1/­­2 of the feta cheese and raisins. Then carefully fold in the baked rhubarb and asparagus. Roll the aubergine: Place the grilled aubergine, one by one, in front of you. Add a large spoonful of the quinoa mixture at the bottom of it and roll up lengthwise away from you. Place the rolls on a baking tray with baking paper. Scatter over the remaining feta cheese, a drizzle of the pesto dressing and sprinkle with the chopped pistachio nuts. Bake for 10 minutes at 200°C/­­400°F. Ready to serve. Serve with a simple green salad of choice and drizzle with yogurt. Enjoy! Note about the pesto dressing: If you make a batch of homemade pesto, simply add more olive oil and lemon juice to make it thinner. Alternatively buy a store-bought pesto and thin it out with more olive oil and lemon juice.

Schnippelbohnensuppe {Green Bean Soup}

September 2 2015 seitan is my motor 

Schnippelbohnensuppe {Green Bean Soup}Hello all, welcome to the second day of Vegan Mofo 2015. Today’s promt is: I am pretty sure that my grandmother’s Schnippelbohnensuppe was one of my favourite foods when I was a kid. (Schnippeln is a verb, it means to chop or cut up vegetables, but the verb sometimes also refers to cutting something with scissors.) But although I always loved green beans, I probably didn’t like this soup because it had beans. I liked it because it had sausages. My grandmother put smoked sausage (called mettwurst) in there and they contributed most of the flavour. Although I really do not miss meat, I couldn’t live without the combination of smoky and salty. I am thankful there are things like liquid smoke and smoked salt to stand in for the sausages I used to eat. I freely admit that I put a vegan sausage into my soups here and there, too. I don’t really get the hate that is directed at these products sometimes. Meat eaters telling me I shouldn’t eat them, vegetarians telling me I shouldn’t eat them and even vegans who tell me this and refuse to eat “fake” meats with a passion. Sure, they are processed. Sure, they have a lot of salt. So what? You can eat them once in a while. Also, please don’t tell me I shouldn’t eat sausages and other plant based meat products because I swore off meat. Exactly. I swore off meat. I never swore of sausage shaped seitan or tofu. It’s plant based. It’s not different from plant based cheeses or plant based milks which never get that amount of hate. So, if you have access to smoky vegan sausages or something like this Merguez that would be a great mettwurst substitute. For this soup, I still used smoked tofu (which can be substituted with any kind of your favourite sausage) because more accessible, I hope. Print Schnippelbohnensuppe {Green Bean Soup} 2 servings Ingredients2 tablespoons oil 100g (3.5 oz) smoked tofu, cubed 50 g (1/­­2 cup) finely sliced leeks 70 g (1/­­2 cup) celeriac (celery root), cubed 280 g (3 small) potatoes, cubed 1 carrot, sliced into thin rounds 350 - 400 g (13 - 14 oz) fresh runner or other green beans, cut into bite-size pieces 480 ml (2 cups) water 1-2 teaspoons fresh rosemary 1 teaspoon smoked salt, or to taste salt and pepper to taste InstructionsHeat the oil in a large pot.

5 Expert Tips for Dating a Non-Vegetarian

January 15 2015 Vegetarian Times 

5 Expert Tips for Dating a Non-Vegetarian Opposites often attract, and in a mostly omnivorous world, its not surprising that vegetarians arent exclusively dating one another. But things can get dicey when it comes to the emotional topics of food and ethics. Want to make it work across the dietary divide? We asked Ayindé Howell and Zoë Eisenberg, co-authors of The Lusty Vegan: A Cookbook and Relationship Manifesto for Vegans and the People Who Love Them, for their best relationship survival tips. Show Respect First off, dont count on converting each other. People do change their eating habits--most of us werent born vegan or vegetarian--but its best not to base your relationship on that hope. You can share your love of tofu and nachos loaded with cashew cheese, but resist passing judgment on what your other half orders for dinner. After all, nothing is more romantic than respect. Sometimes I enjoy our different viewpoints, says Eisenberg of her current partner. They certainly help stoke some fiery conversation. Ultimately, I look at a person as a complete package. Lifestyle choices are only a small portion of that package. Focus on what drew you together in the first place, and enjoy growing as a couple. Make a (Meal) Plan Eating out? Take turns choosing the restaurant, and make sure both of you will have something to eat. Not every meal needs to knock everyones socks off, but try to make it rare that the vegetarian is stuck with a lame salad or the omnivore is totally intimidated by an all-vegan mock-meat menu. Just research the menu of a restaurant before suggesting it, says Howell. Calling ahead to fancier restaurants is a smart move--youll learn if they have any flexibility and may discover a chef whos willing to whip up a fantastic veg dish for you. Dining in? Prepare meatless meals that you both love and that can be easily modified at the table: each of you can add beans, tofu, seitan, or another mix-in of your choice to your own plate. Set Boundaries (and Stick to Them) Planning to move in together? Its a good idea to lay down ground rules for the kitchen. You may decide that it will be entirely vegetarian, or that you wont cook meat but your partner can prepare it. Figure out what youre both comfortable with, and leave the guilt trips out of it. If youre willing to compromise, Howell suggests choosing a color for veg-only knives and cutting boards, while Eisenberg has had success with creating safe spaces where each person has a shelf or area for the foods theyd like to keep separate. You might also want to ask your sweetie to wash up any greasy tools or dishes soon after eating something non-veg. Involve the Folks Consider each others preferences at holiday meals, and team up to make sure the occasion is satisfying for everyone. If the vegetarians family is hosting, check to see if all the guests are cool with mock meats or if they have a particular dish theyd love to see at the table. Getting together with the omnivores folks? Always offer to bring something veg-friendly and help out in the kitchen. Howell and Eisenberg both advise smiling, being polite, and stressing how much you appreciate the effort--even (and perhaps especially!) if a well-meaning host accidentally makes your vegan dish with dairy. It cant hurt to pack some emergency snacks for later, just in case. Get Cooking! If youre daunted by cooking with your omni date, dont overthink it. Many basic (and delicious) dishes are customizable for anyones preferences: just add your own protein at the end. Taco Night Start with tortillas, roasted vegetables, rice, and salsa. Pizza Party Set out toppings and make a few different pies. Spicy Chili Make a basic bean chili and go crazy with toppings. Pasta Supper Think spaghetti with homemade sauce--and a bottle of wine. Are you a vegetarian dating a non-vegetarian? What’s your secret to making it work? Share in the comments!

Mushroom and Bell Pepper Vegan Quesadillas

October 18 2014 VegKitchen 

Mushroom and Bell Pepper Vegan QuesadillasThese simple, light vegan mushroom and bell pepper quesadillas are good served with a hearty grain pilaf or a bean dish. They also make a nice accompaniment to a well-seasoned chili. Photos by Evan Atlas. Serves: 2 generously or 4 modest servings - 8 ounces white or cremini mushrooms, cleaned and sliced - 1 medium green or red bell pepper, or half of each, thinly sliced - 4 soft taco-size (8- to 10-inch) flour tortillas, preferably whole grain - Salsa, your favorite variety, as desired - 2 to 3 scallion, green parts only, thinly sliced - 1/­­4 cup chopped fresh cilantro, optional - 1 1/­­2 cups grated vegan cheddar or nacho style cheese Place the mushrooms in a medium skillet and layer the bell peppers on top of them. Add a small amount of water, cover, and steam until the mushrooms are done and the bell peppers are tender-crisp. Drain. Sprinkle about a quarter of the cheese over the surface of one tortilla. Arrange half of the mushroom and pepper mixture over the cheese. Top with some salsa -- enough to flavor and moisten the veggies, but not to drench them. Sprinkle with half of the scallion, and some optional cilantro. End with about another quarter of cheese, and cover with another tortilla. Repeat the above step with the remaining ingredients. To bake: Arrange both quesadillas on a parchment-lined baking sheet and bake at 400 degrees F for 12 to 15 minutes, or until the tortillas becomes lightly golden and crisp on the outside. To cook on the stovetop: Cook the quesadillas one at a time on a nonstick griddle over medium-high heat. When one side is golden and crisp, carefully flip over and cook the other side until golden. Once done, cut each quesadilla into 4 equal wedges, allowing 2 to 4 wedges per serving, and eat out of hand with extra salsa.

Vegan Shakshuka

December 20 2018 Robin Robertson's Global Vegan Kitchen 

Vegan Shakshuka If youre looking for something different to wake up your taste buds, this vegan shakshuka may be just the ticket. Tofu replaces poached eggs in this spicy dish that originated in Tunisia. It’s great for brunch or a light supper.  I like to serve it with a side of oven-fried potatoes and a salad. Chopped cooked artichoke hearts are a good addition to the zesty sauce and are a good foil for the spicy heat. If you prefer less heat, you can reduce the amount of harissa, red pepper flakes, and/­­or jalapeno.  Serve with warm crusty Italian bread or pita bread. This is one of the 25 all-new recipes featured in One-Dish Vegan (Revised and Expanded edition).   Vegan Shakshuka Makes 4 servings   12 ounces firm tofu, drained 1/­­4 teaspoon turmeric 1/­­4 teaspoon Indian black salt (kala namak), optional Salt and ground black pepper 1 tablespoon olive oil 1 red onion, chopped 3 cloves garlic, minced 1 red bell pepper, chopped 1 jalape?o chile, seeded and minced 1 tablespoon smoked paprika 1/­­2 teaspoon ground cumin 1/­­4 cup nutritional yeast 2 teaspoons harissa paste or 1/­­2 teaspoon red pepper flakes 1 teaspoon sugar 1 tablespoon tomato paste 1 (28-ounce) can diced tomatoes, undrained 1 teaspoon Za’atar spices or 1/­­2 teaspoon dried oregano Chopped parsley or cilantro, as garnish Crusty Italian bread or warm pita bread, to serve 1/­­2 cup vegan unsweetened yogurt   Cut the block of tofu into four 1/­­2-inch thick slices, and then use a cookie cutter to cut the slices into 4-inch rounds.  Save the tofu scraps to use in a scramble or other recipe. Rub kala namak (if using) on the surface of the the tofu rounds. Rub the turmeric in a 1 1/­­2 -inch circle in the center of each tofu round. Season with salt and pepper and set aside. Heat the olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add the onion and cook for 5 minutes to soften. Add the garlic, bell pepper, and chile and cook until tender, 5 minutes. Stir in the smoked paprika, cumin, tomato paste, harissa, sugar, tomato paste, and diced tomatoes. Cook, stirring, until slightly saucy, about 4 minutes, mashing any large pieces of tomato. Reduce the heat to low, season with salt and pepper to taste, and simmer for 10 minutes. Arrange the tofu rounds on top of the sauce, pressing down so just the centers show and the rest of the tofu is submerged in the sauce. Simmer for 10 minutes longer to thicken the sauce and heat the tofu. To serve, sprinkle Za’atar spices and garnish with fresh parsley.  Serve with toasted crusty bread or baguette or pita bread and yogurt, if using.   The post Vegan Shakshuka appeared first on Robin Robertson.

Northern Mexico Chimichangas Chimichangas, called chivichangas in Mexico, are basically deep-fried burritos. These Northern Mexico Chimichangas are little decadent, but wonderful as an occasional treat. They epitomize the mingling of the American-Mexican border culture by their use of flour tortillas mixed with a filling suffused with adobo. You can find these in Tucson as easily as on the […] The post Northern Mexico Chimichangas appeared first on VegKitchen.

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.

Gemista – A Rainbow of Stuffed Veggies

September 20 2016 Green Kitchen Stories 

Gemista – A Rainbow of Stuffed Veggies With less than a month left before the baby is due to arrive, a riot of feelings are bombarding me as I am trying to get mentally and physically prepared. The excitement that our small family (or perhaps not so small anymore) soon get to meet the tiny person that has been kicking my ribs out for the past months. The nervousness how this baby will affect our family’s dynamic. And the fear that we won’t have time to hug all our children and each other enough as we will be drowning under all the duties of everyday life. I don’t think I can be entirely mentally prepared for all the changes that are coming. But I am at least trying to solve a few practicalities. I have just started filling the freezer with soups, bread and vegetable patties. I have also picked up a small selection of new clothes for the baby and brought down the ones we saved from Isac from the attic. Isac has been sleeping in our room until now but will soon move in together with Elsa. Things are starting to fall into place, piece by piece. One bump in the preparations is that David actually is traveling to Turkey tomorrow and will be there for a few days for a mission with WFP, meeting Syrian refugees and documenting their stories (he will tell you more about it here on the blog soon). Even if I am not thrilled about the timing, we both felt like this was something we wanted to be involved in. I’m just crossing my fingers that the baby isn’t too eager to come out early (and that he will stay safe down there)! Lately, I have been making variations of the Greek dish Gemista (a.k.a stuffed vegetables). The kids are loving it and have been shoving there faces full with the stuffing even before it’s baked. The traditional way of preparing the rice is to let it cook together with the rest of the stuffing ingredients but since we are using red or black rice, we cook it separately and then add it, otherwise it stains the entire filling and it just doesn’t look pleasant. In Greece they usually also add some potato slices in between the vegetables on the tray and then pour a thin layer of tomato passata to cover the bottom of the tray. This slightly cleaner approach work well in our family as the kids love to hold the stuffed vegetables with their hands without getting messy. But feel free to add potatoes and tomato sauce for a more traditional take. We used a mix of green, yellow and red tomatoes and peppers and it came out so beautiful. If you only have red tomatoes, that of course works as well. It is easily made vegan by swapping the feta cheese with tofu. Gemista – Rice Stuffed Vegetables  Serves 4 200 g/­­ 1 cup red rice, rinsed 500 ml /­­ 2 cups water 1 tsp sea salt 1 kg /­­ 2 lb mixed tomatoes and/­­or bell peppers (approx 15 vegetables, less if they are large) 1-2 tbsp olive oil or coconut oil 1 red onion, peeled and finely chopped 1 clove garlic, peeled and finely chopped 20 wrinkly black olives, pitted 2 tbsp pickled capers, drained 2 tbsp finely chopped fresh mint 2 tbsp finely chopped fresh parsley 1 handfull almonds, chopped 2 tbsp lemon juice 4 tbsp raisins or finely chopped dates 150 g /­­1 cup feta cheese (optional) Yogurt sauce 1 cup natural yogurt 1 tbsp olive oil 2 tbsp lemon juice 2 tbsp finely chopped mint leaves 1 small clove garlic, peeled and finely chopped salt and black pepper Preheat the oven to 175°C /­­ 350°F. Place rice and water in a saucepan, bring to a boil, lower the heat immediately and let simmer on low heat for as long as instructed on the packet (meanwhile prepare the other ingredients). Drain if needed and transfer the cooked rice to a large mixing bowl. Trim off the top of each tomato. Use a small spoon to scrape out the seeds and flesh from the tomatoes and into a bowl. Slice each bell pepper lengthwise and discard the seeds, alternatively trim off each top and discard the seeds (depending on the shape of the pepper). Heat oil in a skillet, add onion, olives and capers. Finely chop the tomato flesh and add it together with the seeds and liquid. Sauté for about 15 minutes until soft and fragrant, then transfer to the mixing bowl. Add the rest of the ingredients and stir to combine. Fill upp the tomatoes and bell peppers with the stuffing, pressing down very gently as you go. Place the caps back on top of the tomatoes and bell peppers. Place the vegetables in a greased ovenproof dish and bake in the oven for 30-35 minutes or until the tomatoes and bell peppers are soft, golden and have slightly burnt edges. Whisk together the ingredients for the yogurt sauce in a small bowl while the vegetables are in the oven. Serve the stuffed vegetables with a drizzle of yogurt sauce and a simple side salad of choice. ************************ PS! We are having a supper club at Urban Deli in Stockholm next Monday, 26th September at 17.00. We have created a dinner menu together with them and it includes a few smoothies from our new book, warm dishes from our other books and a dessert. We will be there all evening to talk about our books, food philosophy, answer questions and also try to sit down and chat with all of you. Hopefully we will all have a nice and cosy Monday evening.

Green Kitchen Smoothies

April 29 2016 Green Kitchen Stories 

Green Kitchen Smoothies A pre-copy of our newest book, Green Kitchen Smoothies has landed in our kitchen and we are giddy as kids about it (and really proud)! Whilst we were working on the smoothie pack for our app, last summer, we realised how versatile smoothies can be and how much we loved both drinking and making them. We often enjoy smoothies for breakfast, as a healthier midday alternative to sweet snacks and drinks, as a dessert and always after a workout. So you can imagine how thrilled we where when our publisher asked us if we wanted to develop more blends and gather them all into a book that you could hold, read, flip through, give away, collect and hug (or maybe that’s just us?). Our hope is that both experienced smoothie enthusiasts and newbies will find drinks to love in this book. It’s loaded with new smoothies, juices and nut milks, along with our favourites from the app and blog - a mix of simple smoothies and real showstoppers (with layers and toppings). We have also included granola, muesli and nut butter recipes along with lots of really handy tips and tricks. Almost 60 recipes in total, 160 pages thick and a bit smaller in size than our first books and therefore sold at a slightly lower price point (so everyone can afford one or two or three…). Now we are obviously bias, but we think it’s the most gorgeous smoothie book out there. We have put a ridiculous amount of energy into creating unique photos for every smoothie and we have perfected all of the recipes meticulously. This time we even took in help from a separate tester on the other side of the globe, to make sure all the blends would taste good regardless of ingredients, season or location. It is released in the UK and Australia on June 16th and you can pre-order it from Amazon.co.uk (UK) or Booktopia.com.au (Aus) now! It will be released in the US on August 2 but it is already available for pre-orders on Amazon.com. The book is also being printed in German, Dutch, Swedish and Danish in September and we will add links for pre-ordering as soon as we have that info. We are coming to London! To celebrate the launch of the book, Luise and I will be in London during the second week of June for a bunch of talks, supper clubs, events and book signings. We will do a talk at the Good Roots Festival on June 11th together with Sarah Britton, Deliciously Ella, the Hemsley sisters and a bunch of other inspiring people. Tickets seem to already have sold out but I think you can sign up, in case they release extra tickets. We will post more info about our events really soon! The latest info will probably reach instagram first, so keep your eye out.

Becky’s bowl basics are simple, add a layer of grains, potatoes, greens or pasta, top with veggies, then protein and some awesome sauces or dressings. With the recipes for each of the bowl elements in the book, there are endless possibilities to come up with your own combinations!  The book has chapters on Breakfast and Brunch Bowls, Lunches and suppers, Soups and Stews, Sauces and Layers basics. I made this Peanut butter Tofu Bowl with the perfect mashed potatoes (and they definitely are perfect, noochy, peppery and perfect!), greens and drizzled up with more peanut butter sauce. That sauce is so good that I threw in some cauliflower in it and baked those up as well (baked for 25 minutes at 425 degrees F). Clearly most of the cauliflower did not make it to the pictures. What can I say, we all know by now how much Cauliflower we eat in this house. I should just change the tagline of the blog to Eating Cauliflower till we photosynthesize ;)  Back to the Bowls book. Becky has worked on the book and published it by herself! Which I can tell you is a big feat. so many steps go into writing and publishing a book! Support her by getting yourself a copy here! Becky is also giving away the book to 2 readers of the blog. One print copy within US and One digital copy for International readers, anywhere in the world!

Easy Vegan Bean Burritos

December 2 2014 VegKitchen 

Easy Vegan Bean BurritosBurritos, literally meaning “little donkeys,” are a staple of basic Southwestern cuisine. These easy burritos, filled with beans and vegan cheese, are delicious and filling. Photos by Hannah Kaminsky. Makes 8 burritos, 1 or 2 per serving Filling: - 1 tablespoons olive oil - 1 small onion, chopped - 2 cloves garlic, minced - 1/­­2 medium green bell pepper, finely diced - 3 cups well-cooked pinto beans (from about 1 cup raw), or two 15- to 16-ounce cans, drained and rinsed - 1 to 2 small fresh hot chile peppers, seeded and minced, or one 4-ounce can chopped mild green chiles - 2 to 4 tablespoons minced fresh cilantro, to taste - 1 teaspoon ground cumin - Salt to taste - Cooking liquid from the beans, or water, as needed Remaining ingredients: - 8 burrito-size (10- to 12-inch) flour tortillas - 1 cup firmly packed cheddar-style non-dairy cheese - Fresh Tomato Salsa or store-bought salsa - Shredded lettuce for garnish - Black olives for garnish Heat the oil in a medium skillet. Add the onion and sauté over medium-low heat until it is translucent. Add the garlic and sauté for another minute before adding the green pepper. Continue to sauté until the onion is lightly golden. Add the pinto beans along with the remaining filling ingredients and enough liquid to keep the mixture moist. Simmer, covered, for 10 minutes. With a mashing implement, mash about half of the beans. Make sure there is enough liquid in the mixture to form a thick, saucy base. Cook, covered, for another 5 minutes. Spoon some the bean mixture onto the centers of each flour tortilla. Sprinkle with some grated cheese, if desired, and top with a spoonful or so of salsa. Fold two sides over the filling, then roll up snugly. Arrange 2 burritos on each dinner plate. Garnish with shredded lettuce and black olives. Pass around extra salsa. Serve at once. - Find more of VegKitchens Vegan Dinner Recipes   and more Burritos, Enchiladas, And Tortilla Dishes. - Find lots more tortilla recipes in A Southwestern Supper.
