Recipes for vegan Christmas Eve
I recently wrote about Christmas recipes for vegan Christmas Eve (click), it's time for more recipes. Today among others about my favorite pumpkin seed pate, which tastes perfectly smeared with horseradish (Wieluń horseradish is very good, it also has a great composition: horseradish root, sugar, lemon, water, oil, salt. It tastes like home!).

Holiday pumpkin pate

  • 200 g peeled pumpkin seeds
  • 1 cup of dry corn porridge
  • 3 large onions
  • frying oil
  • 5 glasses of water
  • 1 / 2 cups of potato starch
  • 3 oil spoons
  • a handful of dried cranberries
  • 2 tablespoons dried marjoram
  • 3 cloves
  • 2 allspice balls
  • salt
  • pepper

I pour water into a blender bowl and pour pumpkin seeds. I blend for a few seconds. Dice the onion (not exactly, because it will go to the blender anyway). I pour oil in a frying pan, throw allspice and cloves in oil, mix. After a while I throw in chopped onions, fry until golden brown.
I throw away allspice and cloves and let the onions cool down. When it cools down, I put it in a blender (where there are pumpkin seeds with water) and blend the whole until a homogeneous mass.
I pour the mass into a tall plastic jug, add corn porridge and starch. I add salt, pepper and dried marjoram to the mass, as well as dried cranberries. I mix everything and leave for 15 minutes.
During this time, I grease two cakes with oil and sprinkle with breadcrumbs. After 15 minutes, pour the paste into the baking tray. I bake for about 70-80 minutes in 180 degrees.

Mushroom soup from dried porcini mushrooms

- 250 g dried mushrooms
- 1,5 liter of vegetable broth (the best is from tego recipe)
- 2 dried bay leaves
- 2 tablespoons dried marjoram
- salt
- pepper
- 1,5 tablespoons Tao Tao soy sauce (no shit included)
Dried mushrooms pour boiling water and leave under 15 minutes. After this time, pour out the water and rinse the mushrooms in a strainer. We heat the vegetable broth, add spices and soy sauce (I prefer to give more soy sauce than salt, I usually skip it). After a minute, throw in the mushrooms and cook the mushroom soup on low heat. Serve with your favorite pasta.

Hot salad with brown rice, pineapple and cashews

- 2 bags of cooked brown rice
- half fresh pineapple or 3 canned pineapple slices
- 2 medium size onions
- a handful of cashew nuts
- 2 spoons of coconut oil
- 3 tablespoons soy sauce
- salt
- pepper
- oil for frying onions and spreading on a sheet
Fry the onion in oil until golden brown. Put rice, chopped pineapple into pieces 2 cm, fried onion and cashew nuts in a bowl. Pour the salad over soy sauce and add coconut oil. We mix everything.
Gently lubricate the sheet with oil. Transfer the salad from the bowl to the baking tray, leveling. Season and put in a preheated oven (180 degrees). We bake about 25-30 minutes.
The salad tastes great both hot and cold.

Who else wants you to go back to normal nutrition?

As you know, I don't eat meat since June. However, I consume honey. Over time, I would like to eliminate milk derivatives, among others cheese, kefir, buttermilk etc. I try to put aside this by eating less and less often.

Several times I showed you easy recipes, among others zucchini casserole from the time when I ate meat and a recipe for homemade bread. Since then, my diet has changed a bit, which is why I would like to present to you today recipes for several dishes without meat, which are simple and quick.
1. macaroni casserole
This casserole is made in the same way as the one with zucchini, but instead of porridge I use whole grain pasta or from time to time potatoes. I cook pasta, lubricate the sheet with rapeseed oil, pour out the pasta, and for this selected vegetables. It is often a ready mix of frozen vegetables, to which I add what I have, e.g. carrots, onions, etc.
2. Baked Sweet Potatoes
Peel the sweet potatoes like regular potatoes, then cut into slices approximately 3 cm thick and put on a baking tray lined with baking paper. We bake the sweet potatoes around 10-15 minutes at 150 degrees. We serve the dish with salad, e.g. from sauerkraut or sliced ​​red beetroot.
3. Baked beans without meat
It's a very simple dish, and how tasty. All you have to do is buy Jas' bean and soak it all night. In the morning we pour out the water and throw the beans into the pot. Pour water over the beans. We cook until tender. After cooking, we do not pour water, but add canned tomatoes or if you prefer tomato paste or tomato paste (I recommend tomato paste from Rossmann. It is delicious!). We add 2 tablespoons marjoram, 3 bay leaves, salt, pepper, a teaspoon of oregano. Sometimes I also add dried basil, because I like a mixture of spices;) We cook from time to time stirring. A delicious, filling dish that doesn't really need a single gram of meat!
We can freeze the cooked beans in tomato sauce.
4. Toasts with soy pate, tomato and red onion
It is a very simple and tasty dish ideal for breakfast or dinner. We buy toasted bread with grains, smear the slice with your favorite soy pate. We put a slice of tomato on the slice, which we sprinkle with diced red onion. Bake. After removing, we put a fresh basil leaf. Pride!
5. Oyster mushrooms with onion
I really like oyster mushrooms. I often make them pork chops, but also with porridge.
Cut the oyster mushrooms into strips and fry. We add onion cut into feathers. Fry it all. Just lightly season with salt and pepper. We put a portion on previously cooked groats (I recommend pearl or buckwheat unroasted).
I hope that thanks to the above note you will be able to see the benefits of vegetarianism. Feel free to try my recipes :) If you have any nice and quick recipes for meatless dishes, be sure to share them in the comment.
