Here comes the recipe for our vegan orange tarragon fruit leather. It can perfectly combined with a cup of coffee, tea or as a dessert in between. Also, in this post I’ll tell you the next sequel to our “escape” from South Tyrol. Actually a place from which you really don’t like to leave. It hurts my heart when I think about what that means for local businesses that depend on tourism. A disaster. I hope that this phase is not going to affect this beautiful region too badly.
Finally it’s time for a new recipe. Actually the vegan Vietnamese rice noodle soup should have been posted much earlier. I had everything prepared so nicely, so that I could have presented you with two nice recipes every week even during vacation. But it wasn’t possible. Because suddenly, our vacation unexpectedly became a little turbulent and we had leave earlier.
Sandwiches are great. Warm sandwiches are even better. And the VERY BEST: making them vegan is also possible with the best pesto in the world and a portion of well-seasoned, juicy grilled vegetables. I’m always excited about sandwiches like a child on the day before Christmas, especially about those that are creatively filled, with many different ingredients and a delicious spread or dressing. That’s why today, you get the best grilled veggie and basil pesto sandwich you can imagine.
No, it is not a vegan Fanta recipe, although it looks like Fanta. It is my secret anti flu weapon. Flu season is almost over now. Although the rainy weather here in Düsseldorf, will probably prolong it a bit. Thanks to you, Corona Virus. But you don’t know my spicy ginger orange tea yet 😉
How about a salad today? This one is a pretty famous one. It looks complicated, but it can be prepared extremely quickly. I’m sure you all know tabouleh, the delicious parsley salad from the Arabic cuisine. So, this quinoa-mint taboulé absolutely doesn’t reinvent the wheel here. Nevertheless, I would like to present my very own version with lots of mint and quinoa. Usually, taboulé is prepared with bulgur or couscous. Both contain wheat and are therefore unfortunately not gluten-free.
The first recipe this week, a red cashew tomato pesto, comes a bit late, Of course, because of Carnival, why else, here in Düsseldorf. This time, we didn’t celebrate carnival in the classic sense, e.g. dressed as Super Mario and Princess Peach. Well, maybe as Super Mario and Princess Peach, but completely incognito in civilian clothes at home in the kitchen by the stove.
Porridge is great and very practical, especially if you want to stay full for a long time in the morning. Of course, it’s even more fun when it has a wonderfully bright color, which brightens up your mood and helps waking up at 6 in the morning.
Actually a summer dish, but blood oranges are only in season with us here in winter, so what ever 🙂 In summer, you can make the salad with normal oranges. Tastes great, too.
Green Baba Ganoush? Is that possible after all? – I asked myself. Sometimes I just have to do something crazy.
Do you know these days when you come home with your head full of thoughts because there was so much to do at work and you are just happy to be finally, finally home? Then you open the fridge, hoping to find something delicious and, suddenly, you realize OMG –
