Domi popped in off-the-cuff and joined the party. A big thank to both of you to have enlighten my day.

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.

Terrific vegan pie

Vegetarian, Bento, Cuisine, Recipes, Zoé

Dinner
Potato, red beans and carrot pie
-Mint flavoured tea

I don’t know how many times I’ve checked, but it seems I’ve never featured this vegan pie. It’s the perfect meal we enjoy on wintry evenings. It heats up the place while baking and warms our little greedy stomachs. It’s a sort of minced pie with gravy. The main ingredients are potato, carrot, red beans but you could go for some other vegetables (just beware that they won’t be too watery).

A French version is available here.

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.

As you all know, I’m completely fond of wraps! And I usually put really weird stuff in my wraps. This time we went for so tasty lentils balls, a soya bolognese tomato sauce, and kohlrabi roesti and fresh veggies.
But before starting the wraps feast we had some little tomato and feta Provençal tasty jelly. I love these evenings when we have so much of little bites of so many different things…Yummy.

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?
