Someday was my birthday. And the tradition is that the birthday-girl shouldn’t prepare the meal. So Bear is the Chef tonight. One of my favourite meal. A real pleasure. He’s really an amazing cook. Domi popped in off-the-cuff and joined the party. A big thank to both of you to have enlighten my day.

I miss you, end of summer bowl in Chile

Vegetarian, Bento, Cuisine, Recipes, Zoé

Dinner
-Lettuce with parsley
-Sesame seeds
-Radishes
-Pickles
-Tomato with chive
-Toasted cereal bread with a spread of chunky peanut butter and mustard sprouts

Burning my lips with Mary’s herbal tea in the far end of Chile. Loneliness and sunshine rays through my curtains. A lot of work to do and some tiredness. A little cardigan to go out in the sun and brave the brisk wind to get to a pastry shop. Licking my finger with sugar crumbs to avoid staining my book.
A little salad for dinner prepared in a hotel room.
Bear I miss you.

Polish soup : Parówkowy gulasz w jarzynami

Vegetarian, Bento, Cuisine, Recipes, Zoé

Dinner
Polish soup (tomato soup with peas and vegan sausage),
-Toasted bread,
Tofu balls,
Sauerkraut

Bear is away all week. I’m lying on my favourite fluffy carpet, hanging on the phone with my sister while waiting that my soup cools down. It’s a simple meal that I would qualify of comfort food as it brings back a lot of memories from our Polish stay. A meal that Bear often asks for : quick simple and really yummy. A good way to fight winter.

By the way, has anyone a good recipe for vegan sausages? I’d love to be able to replicate the I-bought-them-myself ones.

P.S.: Eve, the homemade tomato sauce and the peas come from my freezer.

So healthy junk food

Vegetarian, Bento, Cuisine, Recipes, Zoé

Dinner
Vegetarian hamburger (vegetarian steak, ogorki, lamb’s lettuce, mustard, sweet tomato sauce, Our sauce BBQ)
Potatoes and mushrooms sauté

Back from the swimming pool. Tired and smelling bleached. But with a big appetite! So, I ran in the kitchen to make us something fulfilling which would be a little special as we had the chance to be together this evening.
Bear was the one who introduced me to junk food when we started to date. I know he misses it from time to time, so I wanted to treat him with a healthy vegetarian version. He’s totally charmed, and this hamburger is his favourite.
I gave two shots to this recipe before finding what I was really looking for. And for the bread, the recipe is just the one of milk bread loaf that you mould into a hamburger bread form, sprinkle with sesame seeds and bake in a pot.

Back from the market: apple chestnut bread

Vegetarian, Bento, Cuisine, Recipes, Zoé

Snack
Apple and chestnut bread with cheese spread
-Spring sprouts
-Fresh veggies: raw cauliflower, raw carrots, apples
-A glass of lemonade

We like to wander in the market on Saturday mornings under the pale sun of spring. Usually when we come back home with our bags full, we like to take a moment to sit and enjoy to eat some fresh vegetables with fresh homemade bread. For a change I went for a chestnut and apple flavoured bread.

A French version is available here.

Sealed sandwiches

Vegetarian, Bento, Cuisine, Recipes, Zoé

Bento content
-Sealed sandwich with aubergine caviar, sprouts
Red fruits jelly
-Lamb’s lettuce
Steamed rice onigri stuffed with sprouts and spread cream
Polish sweet red cabbage salad

My friend StL did all the travel to our place to say hello. And she even came with a present : a sandwich sealer. So I think the least I could do to thank her was to publish Bear’s bento. Thank you so much! For those of you who don’t have it one solution can be to use the flat part of the blade of knife to seal it.
