Lentil-Spinach Curry

This is my fourth vegan challenge dish. Again, I had to add some spices and I’m not sure if this recipe needs both: coconut milk and cream, usually I use one or another when doing “curries” like these. Original recipe doesn’t mention anything about this being a curry, but I think it is, at least after adding some additional spices 🙂 (Based on recipe: http://www.vegaanihaaste.net/linssi-pinaattikastike.html) Save Print Lentil-Spinach Curry  …

Paprika-bean sauce pasta

Again simple but tasty dish. As a bonus I tried to make vegan smetana (or sour cream) also. I didn’t expect much, but it was not bad.. actually quite good, the taste is quite close to the “real deal”. This time I was not so good following the original recipe anymore, as I felt it needed to be a bit more spicy.
