Some evenings are a little bit more busier than others. For these evenings I have some meat alike balls in the freezer that I can quickly accommodate with tomato sauce and pasta. It is one of my favourite express meals. What are your favourite express meals?

Apple crumble pie and chinese spinach soup

Vegetarian, Bento, Cuisine, Recipes, Zoé

Dinner
Chinese spinach and tofu soup
-Steamed Jerusalem artichokes
-Steamed carrots
Sauercraut with mushrooms
Apple crumble pie

I quickly pop in to show you a quickly baked tart. As things go so quickly, I’m not really creative in my kitchen so I stick to the basics. Bear took care of the sauercraut while I took care of the pie, the soup and my mummie’s home grown vegetables. I’m just trying to do quick and tasty meals that would make me happy to be alive and leave me time to share some quality time with Bear. I hope that you can find some ways to share at least half an hour a day with your loved ones.

Let’s have something bad for us

Vegetarian, Bento, Recipes, Zoé

Dinner
Tartiflette
Bortch
Spicy red cabbage
Apple and pear vegan nutty crumble.

If there’s something I miss about France it’s really this stinky running cheese like Munster. And when we entered our nearby shop we found this so familiar and sweet stinky smell! We couldn’t resist and bought two! The assistant at the check out was so disgusted and couldn’t bear the smell, she even put our cheese in plastic bags to prevent us of the smell…hihi! Guess she didn’t get why we were buying two of these nearly out of date cheeses…
Well, we treated ourselves with a vegetarian tartiflette!
This one is made with Saint Félicien, potato and turnip slices flavoured with cumin. Eh, from time to time we do enjoy having something really bad for us! So delicious…

Colourful bento

Vegetarian, Bento, Recipes, Zoé

Bento content
Seitan crakers
-Quinoa topped with kohlrabi leaves and nuts sprinkles
-Broccoli and Brussels sprouts flavoured with ginger, chilli pepper and stock
Apple and pear nutty crumble
Aubergine’s caviar, carrot and radish pickles
-BF’s eternal cheese sandwich
Quick soup

After swimming I had to pack really quickly up a bento for the next day. I had some seitan left, I decided to prepare them as little miso flavoured fritters. This was really a good idea. Even cold they are really tasty and not too greasy as I cannot truly fry them (none of my pans are deep enough). The apple and pear crumble was the result of this 6 o’clock cooking frenzy. And it’s a good way to make BF eat fruits. (I still didn’t find enough tricks to make him eat fruits except juices, smoothies and cakes…any idea?) What’s more? Ah..aubergine caviar. This is a very good dip which deserves it’s name. One aubergine gives really little caviar…but so tasty! And last but not least, I added a little round tup in which I poured boiling water to make it in a soup. This one is a mix of miso, kohlrabi and nut sprinkle and dried tomato strips. Well, that was really tasty! I’ll make some soup every lunch now! Having a hot dish on this cold days was really a joy.
