Mains/ Salads

Gekruide Couscous Salade met gedroodge abrikoos

Als je even snel op Pinterest zoekt zie je al snel dat er veel verschillende variaties op couscous salades te vinden zijn. Daardoor wou ik eerst eigenlijk geen couscous recept posten hier. laten we eerlijk zijn, het is niet het meest vernieuwende idee! Maar uiteindelijk vind ik couscous gewoon hartstikke lekker en besloot deze toch met jullie te delen.

Dit is een van mijn favoriete manieren om couscous te eten. De combinatie van kruiden met de zoete abrikoos werkt gewoon goed. Het is een couscous recept wat goed dient als bijgerecht bij lekkere geroosterde groenten of een stoofpotje.

Burgers

Delicious Vegan Sweet Potato Quinoa Burger

This veggie burger recipe is as delicious as it is nutritious! Full of healthy protein, carbs and flavor it can be eaten on a bun or on a salad.

Veggie burgers are one of my favorite junk foods. But what if it doesn’t have to be unhealthy? Replace those fake meat veggie burgers for veggie patties that are actually full of nutrition as well. Sounds like double benefits to me.

When I first started eating vegetarian I used meat replacement products, like veggie burgers, to substitute meat. I think this is something many vegetarians can relate too. I was not familiar with nutrition at all and suddenly a large component of my diet was ‘missing’. Veggie burgers can be so much more than a meat replacement though! This veggie burger is not even meant to taste like meat. It’s meant to taste good and looks kind of like a burger but that’s about the only relationship there.

I tried to make lots of veggie burgers in my first few years as a vegetarian. Some recipes were a disaster, some were okay and some were good. With no experience, not so much information on internet yet I pretty much tried different lentil and bean veggie burgers. They varied from mushy to dry. Most of the recipes didn’t stick.

This veggie burger I invented in 2012 and I still make it. So after 7 years I’m finally sharing the recipe with you. It doesn’t have beans and I find it easy to digest. You can spice it up however you want, put a little cayenne in or more of the listed spices. I also love cooking some onions first and putting them in the mix.

Breakfast/ Smoothies

All-in-1 Berry Smoothie with protein

I love smoothies! And although a green vegetable smoothie may be very healthy, I often gravitate towards creamy fruitier smoothies. To make my smoothies extra creamy I like to use frozen bananas and/or coconut milk.

*About freezing bananas:  If you’re going to freeze bananas, make sure to peel them first. May sound logical, but I’ve actually done it with peel and let me tell you, it’s way easier to peel them beforehand! Break them in pieces before freezing them, so that they’ll easily fit in your blender. Breaking a frozen banana is a bit challenging.  I usually half them, but smaller pieces is possible too and even better if your blender is less strong. Keep the frozen bananas in a ziplock bag (I wash mine and re-use them) or a plastic container. Don’t stack too many, as they can get very stuck in a lump. Fronzen bananas are incredibly useful to always have in your freezer and are a perfect way yo use ripe bananas! Tip: they make great ice cream too!
