Love letter, leftover lunchbox

Vegetarian, Bento, Cuisine, Recipes, Zoé

Bento
Asparagus
Hollandaise sauce
Mint peas
-Courgette and potato sauté
Lens and beans burger
-Rice
-Strawberries

Back to work as normal, a bento for lunch as being a vegetarian in France is not the easiest. Some courgette and potatoes sautés and some strawberries completed yesterday’s leftovers.
I should be more sedentary in the following months. Not sure Bear will though, so I’ll be the one staying in a lonely house filled with memories, laughs and teasing, scrabble games and chess defeats, decoration planning and wall banged down, plaster dust and paint smells, dug up garden and newly planted trees, all the things we only manage to do together and when one is not by our side we just lose the strength or ability to do.

Together, mint peas, hollandaise sauce and asparagus

Quick evening meal
Mint peas
Hollandaise sauce
-Rice
Lens and red beans burger
Asparagus

After my trip to Chile I did a jump to Sweden while Bear was in Finland. Both home at last we treated ourselves with some asparagus highlighted with an hollandaise sauce. I added a lens and red bean burger as I really missed pulses in Chilean restaurants. Some rice with mint peas was the perfect match.
It’s such a pleasure to be together again.

So healthy junk food

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.

Sunday for two: Tempura

Vegetarian, Bento, Cuisine, Recipes, Zoé

Sunday lunch
Falafel
Tempura (aubergine, carrot, onion)
-Soba with miso
Sweet and sour tomato sauce

Did you ever tasted tempura? Such lightly breaded fried vegetables. I added some sweet and sour sauce with a little soba and miso soup to complete the meal. And though, it’s not Japanese, I added some falafel for the pulse, but it was a little too much fried item for the same meal. Next time, we’ll go for some steamed pulse burgers!

Donburi

Lunch bowl
Poached egg
Caramelised aubergine
-Rice
Sweet tomato chilli beans (exchange the hot chili pepper paste with 1 tsp of sugar or agave sirop)

Sometimes I like to wander on the web. And here’s what I found on Shoko’s amazing blog: Donburi. So when I managed to found aubergine at my local store, I went for it! And to say true it became a popular meal at our place! You should definitively give it a try!
