Autumn Vegan Feeling Soup

Your going to love this. When the days get shorter and darker and colder, it’s soup time once again. But I must admit I enjoy a good bowl of soup all year round!


Try this hearty soup. It will be a small sensation at your next party, or when having friends or family over for the holidays, - that’s for sure.

Autumn Vegan Feeling Soup



1 T vegetable oil
2 onions, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 T fresh ginger minced
1 1/2 t cumin
1 1/2 t coriander
1/2 t ground cinnamon
1/2 t freshly grated nutmeg
3 medium tomatoes, chopped  

1 ½ lbs/700 gr Hokaido pumpkin, chopped
3 medium carrots, peeled and chopped
4 cups/1 liter water
1 teaspoon salt
1 T red Thai curry paste
pepper to taste
Soy milk as needed
1/4 cup chopped, dry-roasted peanuts
3 T creamy peanut butter
1 bunch chopped parsley  

Heat the oil in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Saute the onions over medium heat 6 – 7  minutes, until lightly browned. Mix in the garlic, ginger, cumin, coriander, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Stir in the tomatoes, pumpkin, and carrot, and continue to cook and stir about 5 minutes. Pour water into the saucepan, and season the mixture with salt. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer 30 minutes. Remove the soup mixture from heat. In a food processor or blender, blend the soup and peanut butter until smooth. If the mixture is too thick, add a little soy milk. Season with red Thai curry paste and pepper. Serve piping hot, topped with chopped peanuts and parsley.

Tzatziki

What to do with all the veggies in the fridge?


Just grill them in the oven or in a grill skillet with a little oil and lots of seasoning, until tender.





Toast a pita pocket and stuff it full of the warm veggies. Too dry? Try adding some tzatziki.



Tzatziki,

1 cucumber, peeled
1 cup (250 gr) soy yogurt
1 t cashew butter
½ to 1t salt and pepper
1 t lemon juice
1 t white vinegar
2 cloves of garlic, finely chopped
1 T dill


Cut the peeled cucumber lengthwise in two, then remove the seeds and grate it. Add ½ t salt to the cucumber. After 10 min wring to remove excess liquid from cucumber. Mix the rest of the ingredients. Gently fold the grated cucumber into the yogurt sauce.

Nice Cream

Guess who messaged me today? My friend Sofia of Iss Happy! It wouldn’t be that remarkable if I hadn’t planned to make nice cream because of one of her posts just this very day.













And so I did. Easy, peasy.


Frozen bananas, peeled and pureed and one of the bananas pureed with mixed, frozen berries.
Summertime means an abundance of berries – strawberries, raspberries and blueberries went into our nice cream.


Topped with some toasted, sliced almonds and coconut, our dessert was like a dream. And you know the saying:  I scream, you scream, we all scream for nice cream!

Vulkan Pizza, Giessen

Der Hunger hat uns wieder gepakt. Ich wollte schon lange Vulkan Pizza ausprobieren da ich wusste das diese vegane Pizza anbieten. Nichts wie hin. Und siehe da auf der Karte zwei verschiedene Pizzas die in Frage kämem – Vegetaria und auch Meditarrana – allerdings ohne Parmesan.








Und so habe ich mich für die Meditarrana entschieden.








Wie herrlich der Duft in der Luft lag. Wie freundlich und zuvorkommend die nette, hübsche Bedienung!












Und dann war es da. Ein tolle Augenweide die Scheiben von reifen, roten Tomaten und oben drauf viele kleine Stückchen Zucchini, Aubergine, Champions und viel Kräuter. 





Ein perfekter, dünner, knusprige Boden war das absolute I-Tüpfelchen.


                                            Absolut empfehlenswert!
