Orange carrots:  recipe from 500 vegan recipes

 

 

Shepherd’s pie

Standard

Recently I bought ‘The complete guide to vegan food substitutions’.  I didn’t expect I was going to learn something new.  But I was so mistaken.  This has plenty of new ideas and tricks for veganizing food.  Also I didn’t expect to find so many recipes in it.

The first recipe I tried was the Shepherd’s pie:

I scooped a little bit of the inside on the plate.  So you have an idea what’s inside.

Mmm, delicious!!!

Mushroom gravy with pink mashed potatoes

Standard

For this gravy I used the recipe from Quick and EasyVegan comfort food. It’s an easy and quick recipe.
For pink coloured mashed potatoes, just add some passata to your regular recipe for mashed potatoes. Et voila, your ordinary dish becomes a little bit more special.

Receiving awards is fun

Standard

Wow, I received a stylish blog award from The life.  The fact that he called me friendly and colorful makes me specially happy.

Below this post you find the rules,  it means I have to give you 7 facts about myself.  Here we go:

1/ I’m not particular found of a lot of vegetables and I always forget to buy and eat fruit.

2/ My job: I’m responsible for a small library specialised in sexual health education

3/ While I’m cooking there is a lot of chance you  find me dancing too

4/ Long time ago I was a real hardcore-punk girl, who liked to pogo and even tried once a stagedive.

5/ I’m more a dreamer than a do-er.  I have lots of interests and almost every day I’m having a splendid new idea , but I’m spending more time on thinking, dreaming and creating in my head, than actually doing things.

6/ I never were cosmetica and I don’t even know how I should put it on.

7/ I look much younger then my real age.  People can’t believe I have a 16 year old daughter, sometimes they mistake me for an older sister, but I was already 26 when she was born.  I always blame it on not eating meat but the truth is it runs in the family.

And these are the blogs I would like to give an award.

Brussels sprouts in caramelsauce

Standard

I found another recipe for brussels sprouts and this one is probably the most weird one ever.  It combines the brussels sprouts with a typical sweet dessert flavour: a caramel sauce.

I was not totally crazy about it but I didn’t disliked it too.

I found the recipe in the dutch vegan cookbook Ecofabulous.  A book  I really can recommend.

The celery risotto is from a new vegan cookbook, but this time it’s a flemish one: Puur & vegetarisch.
