Hi there! Here’s some food pictures again, in which you can see how nicely the sun is shining. 🙂
I had a slice of housemate-made bread with avocado, as you can see. It was the first time I was able to slice an avocado like this, hehe. I love this picture for its colours, the weather!, and of course the bunny and the cat. The cat’s name is Minoes. If you’re not convinced of Minoes’ cuteness, here’s a close-up.
And then I made soup from the garden: nettle soup! My very first attempt. I also just used an altered version of the very first recipe I found here (in Dutch). It’s basically onion, nettles, broth and roasted oats. I liked it! Especially as a midnight snack after a full day of festivals and parties on Ascension. Followed by a coconut cupcake after a recipe out of Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World from Terry Hope Romero & Isa Moskowitz.
It was a lovely day. On the festival I volunteered for Greenpeace, walking around in a tree costume, hugging children and asking their parents to sign the petition for setting marine reserves in the North sea, so that the fish population can recover.
Next up: vegan and even oil-free falafel! The rest is oil free as well. I am experimenting with cooking without oil, as Dr McDougall recommends in his book The Starch Solution. Everything on this plate is oil-free and it was delicious. 🙂 We have the falafel, grilled aubergine and courgette, steamed sweet potato, grated carrot with roasted sunflower seeds and a salad out of rocket salad, tomatoes, cucumber and more sunflower seeds. Life can be so good.
I’m not so into bread baking (yet?), but here I turned some old-ish bananas and flour into banana bread! I used this recipe (in Dutch), left out the nuts and replaced the oil by some apple sauce. I love how banana bread is really easy and simple, yet a real treat.
So, that was it for now. If you have questions or recommendations regarding vegan food: shoot! I’m just trying to post some nice foods of various kinds to show that there’s a lot of different things to eat as a vegan. I would like to see your pictures as well, so if you have a food blog: let me know and I will surely check it out!
