Tempeh Steaks

This was the first time I have cooked tempeh, and also maybe the first time I have ever eaten tempeh. We had no idea what to do with it, so we used Alma’s famous recipe for delicious tofu steaks and added some lemon juice, as couple of first tempeh recipes found on Google search seemed to be using it. We have to prepare these again, soon! Save Print Tempeh Steaks   Ingredients Plenty…

Worcestershire sauce

I have always wanted to taste worcestershire sauce, but it contains fish. I know there are some vegan alternatives, and I checked if vegekauppa has any on their selection, as we are planning to place an order anyway. While searching I started to wonder why not try to do it by myself, I bet there are tons of recipes on the Internet. So, here is one more, my variation of Martha Stewart’s…

Paprika Baba Ganoush

I added one paprika to Baba Ganoush recipe and roasted it with aubergine slices. The result was a bit sweeter and milder. I’m not yet sure which one I like better, the original or the paprika version, I have to make them both at the same time and compare. Oh well, at least this one looks prettier than the original. I wonder what else I could roast with aubergine to make the…

Tomato Cabbage Stew

We have a surplus of cabbage, leftover from last Saturdays cabbage salads. Part of the solution was to prepare stew out of them, but there are still so much left! Next plan is to make sauerkraut out of them, but lets see if I find time to do that. Notes: Oat cream + tomato puree makes a good base for sauce. Tomato puree by itself adds rich tomato flavor, but it’s bit bitter….

And finally I have transferred all my old posts to the new site. And while doing that and going through all the…

Sweet Potato-Chickpea Salad

I loved the smell of spices in the kitchen while preparing this dish, and the best part of this recipe was the roasted sweet potato with chickpeas! I think I added too much cabbage and toned down the taste. Next time I will add a bit less cabbage, or make a variation by replacing the cabbage with pasta or rice. I came back to this recipe next day. I found out…
