One more little idea to colour naturally rice: tomato sauce! It’s amazing it didn’t appear on the blog before because it’s one item which comes often on our table! Mum usually does it with green olives which gives a nice little taste. Though I usually eat it hot, it’s nice cool too. And it was really delicious with some little vegetables cooked and fresh. And today, I didn’t forget the pulse to have a well-balanced vegetarian bento. I did some really great “meat” balls with smoked tofu and gluten. The taste is really incredible and Bear was totally seduced by it. And now I can redo my favourite easy and express pasta recipe: “meat balls” with tomato sauce.
Happy!

A new little oven and a Provencal cheese pie

Vegetarian, Bento, Cuisine, Recipes, Zoé

Dinner
Thai like soup
Provencal cheese pie
-Mini tomatoes
-Carrot salad
-Lettuce (Lamb lettuce)
-Raw cauliflower
Falafel

A new oven has taken place in my little kitchen! Therefore I can continue my pie craziness. A few guests came by to have a little chat this evening and joined us for dinner. My stay in Poland has changed some of my habits, and I now often start a meal with a little soup. This Thai soup was made of julienned carrots, maize, broad beans, mungo beans sprouts and chive. Truly refreshing. Then, a little plate full of salad with a magical Provençal cheese cake with dried tomatoes. Bear is totally fond of it, and it was one of the pies he asked me to bake for his goodbye party when we left Poland.

Sort of minced meat (seitan)

Vegetarian, Bento, Cuisine, Recipes, Zoé

Dinner
Minced seitan
Cauliflower and broccoli stir
Spinach with mushrooms

The hot Polish summer days seem to be always followed by stormy rainy nights. Even in week-ends. I came back tired from a medieval battle reconstitution at Grunenwald and a three hours swim in a cold lake. I needed some fulfilling food to help me fight back the little cold which seemed to show up. So, as I had a little time yesterday night I prepared some minced meat substitute based on seitan and tofu. The result was really nice especially with some really tasteful veggies. What could we hope for more?

Polish dish: mushroom scallop

Vegetarian, Bento, Cuisine, Recipes, Zoé

Dinner
Mushroom scallop [polish recipe]
Onion and curcuma risotto
Mediterranean foil parcel

We have spent an incredibly great week-end with Bear’s polish colleagues. Though they only speak polish, my polish is good enough to understand easy things and answer half with words half with mimes. Yes, I rarely encounter any polish in my work, whereas Bear is all the time working with Poles, therefore he’s nearly fluent.
As I am a vegetarian, and polish diet is really full of meat, Agda thought a lot and came with this incredible mouth watering mushroom scallop. The idea is to mimic their chicken scallop. These easy scallop need two major ingredients Boczniak mushrooms and tarta bulka which is finely blended bread crumbs made of their bulka bread (baking soda based bread). I think you might find them in special polish stores, I believe. Well, I’ll figure it out next year, as I definitely want to have some more of these in the future, even if not living in Poland any more.
I added some little foil parcel of Mediterranean vegetables with some fresh basil and thyme I manage to grow near the kitchen window. To accompany these goodies, Bear in the meantime prepared some simple but tasteful onion and curcuma risotto. It was a joy to cook together, and even more when we sat down and started to eat…Oh Poland, you really can have good food!
