Vegan dinner

I sometimes make vegan dinner. I think it’s no problem to do that. For example there are many vegan ready meals. You don’t have to be a good cook to make vegan meals. You have to like vegetables and those things though but if you don’t do that you don’t become vegan.

This dinner is a rice curry. The base is a frozen rice mix. It’s rice, peas, corn and peppers you buy frozen. You could buy the ingredients separately if you don’t find something like the rice mix. I cook the mix in plant based butter for a while.

I always use curry paste when I cook these dinners. This is green curry paste. There are ready made curry sauces but I want to decide myself how spicy I want it. I add the curry and also coconut milk. I love coconut milk.

Vegan salad

I try to eat healthy sometimes. I often eat not that healthy and when I’ve done that for a while I have to clean my body. That means no meat and less sugar.

When I had the latest “cleaning” I made a vegan warm salad. Haha I know salad, or lettuce, is vegan in itself. Often though and what I mean, is that a salad has meat, fish or something like that added to it.

A vegan salad that only has veggies in it can be a bit “too little”. Only raw veggies almost never fills me up anyway. Warm veggies do if I pick certain ones. This salad was delicious. The things I used in the salad were oven baked potatoes, carrots, broccoli and brussel sprouts. I mixed them with plant based butter and salt and pepper. I love all those ingredients. I also put raw tomatoes and spinach in the salad. I didn’t warm them because I like them better raw.

The rest of the meals that day were oat porridge, scrambled eggs and rice cakes. I know eggs are not that healthy but my body craves protein. Eggs are better than nothing. I exercise lots and have to eat balanced.

Vegan dinner

Today I made a vegan dinner. Everything from the pasta to the sauce was vegan. The only part I don’t know if it’s vegan is the wheat flour in the sauce. Haha I know wheat flour isn’t meat but I never see it in vegan recepies. It must have to do with the wheat but I don’t know how. Green pea pasta with mushroom sauce. Green pea pasta! I’ve never tried that. It’s made from only green pea flour.

I don’t know what to think about the pasta. It doesn’t taste much but regular pasta doesn’t taste much either. There wasn’t much pea taste to it. The consistancy was like pasta. It’s supposed to contain much protein and that’s wonderful. If you’re vegan you will like this but I like “normal” pasta better.

The mushroom sauce was tasty! I don’t know the word for this mushroom, in Sweden it’s called “champinjon”. Anyway I fried the mushrooms (200g) in plantbased butter until they got light brown. I used salt and pepper to give some flavour. Then I added about 1 tbsp wheat flour but use the flour you like! To make it a sauce I added oat milk.

There is avocado on the plate but I left it there because it was too ripe.
