Paris, my best friend and her meal

-Red beans
Leek and onion baguette
-Chocolate soya yoghurt

I was on a trip to Paris and my friend StL offered me to stay at her place. I have this incredible chance to know StL and her friendship. With my nomad life, I don’t have much opportunities to meet her though. Last time, I was explaining her my vegetarian diet and how to balanced it, and this time she amazed me with this welcoming vegetarian so well balanced meal!
She remembered that I missed French baguette and leek (Bear doesn’t like it so much) and she came out with this leek and onion baguette. This meal seemed to me the best meal ever, was it the bread, the leek or just sharing it with her? I don’t want to know, and just wanted to share this evening meal with you.
I believe that this post could be dedicated to strong friendships without borders.

Lemon jelly
Potato roesti
-Carrot sliced cooked and carrot salad
Cabbage yoghurt salad

I believe you have understood that lately, I’m stressed out, and that I have really few time to prepare meal or our bento lunches. So yesterday evening I quickly prepare some lemon jelly with agar-agar. It takes something like 3 minutes to prepare and then, I just have to let it set in the fridge.
It’s the same with these potato and chick-pea roesti. Quickly made and so tasty cold thanks to the garlic.
The cooked carrot slices were just some leftovers and so was the cabbage salad.
This bento asked for less than 10 minutes to put together and was really tasty.

Because sandwich can be vegetarian!

Okara breaded broccoli
-Carrot salad
French vinaigrette
Vegan lemon and kiwi pie
Sandwich made of vegan pâté (black beans), spinach leaves, lettuce, cucumber, cheese.

As I told you I running all the time, I need to go quick. And as you know I still wanted to bake this vegan tort for our job meeting. Still, I had to prepare a bento and well, at some time, go to bed! So I quickly assembled this bento with breaded broccoli for the crunchy taste, raw vegetables for the fresh taste, this little vegan pie because I couldn’t present a pie that I hadn’t tasted before, and to complete a vegetarian sandwich. Yes sandwiches can be vegetarian! This one is filled with creamy cheese, vegan pâté (black beans), spinach leaves, lettuce, cucumber.

Vegan lemon and kiwi pie

Lemon apple and kiwi pie.

I’m really busy lately but yesterday, we were having a meal together with my colleagues. As one of our colleagues has a broken leg, we had some Indian take away. And as I can’t imagine a good meal without a sweet touch, I decided to bake a pie. I was thinking of lemon pie. But well, I had to do it vegan, and without margarine to avoid palm oil.

Most of my colleagues are omnivores. When, I told them that I baked some vegan dessert, they joked about it: so we are eating flour and water? Bread? It can only be some sugary bread alike…Well, I really managed to amazed them with this pie!

I didn’t have any vegan recipe, and I was in a creative mood : I tried to create some lemon filling with lemons, apples and agar-agar (jelly seaweed). It took me something like one hour and a half taking into account that I did the soya milk on that evening for the sweet vegan crust pastry. Believe it was quite quick for a dessert. The lemon jelly is also really tasty on its own.

There were no leftovers…
