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.

Rice and peas krokiet

Vegetarian, Bento, Cuisine, Recipes, Zoé

Dinner
Rice, lens and peas krokiet
-Lettuce
-Steamed broccoli

I loved to eat in this healthy vegetarian fast-food in Warsaw. I miss such a brand here. So this evening I wanted to eat again one of their ‘krokiet” made of rice, peas and lens. I found on the net a recipe and did my own version (as usual). It is vegetarian and was breaded with okara rather than breadcrumbs. I do not know yet how to do some vegan “cheese” to replace it. You’ll have to wait that I get the “Ultimate Uncheese cookbook” book for the vegan version. Anyway, Bear was realy happy with the meal.

For those of you who read polish, jump to Edysqua’s wonderful blog which is where I found the inspiration.

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.

Simple food: steamed rice onigris

Vegetarian, Bento, Cuisine, Recipes, Zoé

Bento content
Steamed onigri
Pumpkin purée, lentils, nori, and again lentils, pumpkin
-Sprouts
-Steamed red beans

If you’re familiar with my diet, you know how much I enjoy rice. I first tasted steamed rice in a welcoming Laotian restaurant in a little town in North-East of France. The chef explained us in detail the recipe. I can’t thank him enough for my everyday pleasure of enjoying steamed rice at home with low efforts. This time, I just accompanied it with some simple items. One side of the box I just set one layer of pumpkin purée, lentils, nori, then start all over. It’s really nice to take a spoonful of this mix. Red beans completed the meal.

Fried parsnip

Dinner
Puffed sauerkraut
Fried parsnip
-Boiled carrots from mum’s garden
-Ogorki

I’m trying to catch up a little. So this post isn’t about our favourite puffed sauerkraut, but just to point out a discovery of ours. Bear is really reticent to eat up his parsnip usually. But this changed when he came up with the idea to prepare them as chips! Sometimes, he really comes up with nice ideas!
