New schnitzel in town

Standard

Yes, there is a new schnitzel in town.  And they sell it in the supermarket, between lots of other vegetarian schnitzels.  But this time I was lucky, because the new one, is a vegan one.  They’re selling them with big promotions now as an introduction.  So, of course I had to take them home.  Especially for teenage girl, because she likes all kind of schnitzels a lot.  But I never bought them anymore, because none of them were vegan.

If you want more information about this product, you find it here.  By the way they call it a filet, and they have two kinds: spicy and less spicy, but also nuggets.

We had the spicy ones, and guess: we all liked them.  The crust was actually the best crust I ever tasted.  It had  way more flavours in it.

I’m glad that I have a big tip now for when someone else wants to cook for me.  I wouldn’t mind getting them served as a meat-replacer.

Green beans with tomatoes and puff-pastry pita-seitan stuffed (veganmofo, no. 12)

Standard

Wow, yesterday was the first day of Veganmofo that I actually didn’t post anything.  I have some excuses: the weather was way to nice, there is a crisis going on at my work and they’re starting to rebuilding my attic. 

I hope this food makes it alright for you girls and guys?

 

Green beans with tomatoes and puff-pastry pita-seitan stuffed

I didn’t make the puff-pastry myself, but I found some in the supermarket and filled it with this:
 from Greenway.
Served with some couscous. 

Bite back

Standard

I went to the city in a search of bike-bags and I found surprisingly the people of Bite back having a stall in front of McDonalds.  And look what I bought from them:

 

 

The Lisa button was chosen by Teenage girl.  They were also selling this booklet:

(writer’s note: sorry, it seems I lost the picture)

Yes, vegan recipes.  At a first look I can’t expect very promising, new, exciting food.  It’s more of plain food where you substitute cream for a soy alternative.  But, I don’t mind. I only bought the thing as a support.

Indian food

Standard

I don’t know how long already, but this thing:

have been screaming to me for a long time now, every time I opened one of my kitchen cupboard.

(it’s the thing on the left)

So, yesterday I finally grabbed my ‘Worlds vegetarian classics’ from Celia Brooks Brown.  I have this book for almost a year, and never used it.  It’s all the fault of the vegan blogs, because soon after I got this book I discovered al these great blogs and became addicted to them.

Well, it was a mistake, not of spending all my time on the blogs, but of not using the book, because the indian recipes I used from it are so delicious:

DAL (I even served myself 3 times) and BAIGAN ALOO CHARCHARI (sorry, I used a dutch version and the traditional names or in it but no english).  The last dish is actually from Bengalen.

Tortilla-pita and a big thanks to Eric Marcus

Standard

I have to admit that this dish was a very easy one for getting good grades.  It’s no work and most teenagers like this kind of ‘fast-food’.

As the ‘faux-pita meat’ I used the one from Greenway.  It’s a new thing on the market and you can find it in the supermarket. 

And it got me an 9 to 10.

I also made some almond-cupcakes, but we didn’t eat them yet, so you have to wait for my grades till tomorrow. 

I also have to give a big thank you to Eric Marcus.  He found the picture of my Strawberry-banana smoothie on my flickr account, and blogged about it.  Check it out!!!  Sadly, he missed the chocolat-strawberry cake.

 

Visit to Antwerp

Standard

Today, we (again the teenager and me) took a small visit to Antwerp.  I had to go over there anyway (to learn talking in french on the telephone).

Finally, We visited the vegan shoe-shop: Georgette (see this earlier post).  Unfortunately, the shoes are all quiet expensive and not so much into my style of cloths.  I’m more into playish(?) clothes.  And I’m riding a bike almost everyday or walking some distances, so my shoes can’t be to uncomfortable.  Also, they didn’t had the ones I was looking for.

But I took some two other things back home:

Vegetarian journal

Vegetarian journal from ‘The vegetarian resource group’.

If I was living in the US or Canada, probably I would find this a very interesting journal, but now I didn’t.  Or maby I had bad luck finding an issue (it’s not the one is showing, but nr. 2 from 2008), which most part of the magazine was writing about the veggie options at quick-service restaurant chains.  Most of them we don’t have over here, accept pizza hut and McDonalds (and the latest has enough reasons for rather going hungry then to pay them a visit).  The magazine had some interesting looking recipes, but not enough for the price I had to pay.

vegetarian summer Two times a year (Christmas and summer) BBC GoodFood publishes a totally vegetarian issue.  It’s not that the recipes are vegan (only a few are), it’s not that the recipes are amazing (but it has some good chefs playing around), it’s not that it’s bringing exciting news from veggy-land.  No, it’s not that, but it surely is some very, very good vegetarian foodporn.

Tofutti Cheddar style

Standard

Yesterday, some pizza again. 

On top: Tofutti Cheddar style.  This was ok.  But it’s probably not the best choice for fake cheese on a pizza.

A few days ago I used the Tofutti Cheddar in some croque-monsieurs with some Cheatin’ Pepperoni slices.  And yes, this is the reason why they make these things.  Sometimes, it’s nice to know you can still eat these things without the cruelty behind it.  And yes, I have a big excuse, the teenage girls likes this very much.
