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.

Aubergine and red lentils spring rolls

Dinner
Aubergine and red lentils spring rolls
Maize boiled and then grilled
Oyster mushroom scallops

Here, the aubergine are still in season and the winter isn’t at all settling. I’d rather say that it’s late summer beginning of autumn. This is one of the pleasure of living more southern than last year! I had a good luck while surfing on the Messy vegetarian’s blog and the spring rolls are freely inspired from his recipe. It was a true treat with some boiled and grilled maize and our favourite mushroom scallops. A nice meal before I take the night train to the wintry north.

Dinner
Pea and mint purée in Duchesse
Carrot purée in Duchesse
Potato purée in Duchesse
Coral lentils spicy balls
-Cucumber slices
-Spinach leaves
Creamy dip

As I told you, Bear is working a lot and so do I. I fill the lonely evenings with more work, or surfing on your blogs. But tonight it’s different. Bear sent me a text message that he would be able to join me for dinner. So, I put a bottle of our hometown wine to cool and started messing my kitchen. And this is our meal: three colour Duchesses with spicy lentil sesame balls with their creamy dip and salad.
The result was colourful, the taste amazing and Bear’s smile unforgettable. I believe that love and food have a strong link…;)

Bento quickly made in the evening

Bento content
Spinach and goat cheese pie
French vinaigrette
Lentils and coral lentils with soya sauce
Cabbage salad (yoghurt and mayonnaise)
-Carrot salad
Corn and olive salad

So, I’m in a real hurry lately. Very few time, for you, for me, for anything to say the truth. I’m running, running, running. So I had to quickly make a bento for tomorrow’s lunch as it is bento or starve choice option…
So quickly this evening, with the rest of flaky pastry from the onion pie, I made some little spinach and goat cheese pies. (yes, we treated ourselves with goat cheese).
I added the rest of our lentils and red lentils we had on the evening. They were cooked with 2 tbsp of black soya sauce. So we didn’t have to add a vinaigrette to highlight them. I prefer them just a littly crunchy for a bento salad so it’s a good idea to cook the both types of lentils together as the coral lentils are cooked before the brown lentils. It’ll give a crunchy and soft texture.
Then, I just added some salads and corn and olive salad for the starch.

This bento was really quickly assembled, but was tasty!
