Archives For vegetarian

So lately there has been an influx of vegetarian and vegan products in the grocery stores here, something I’m happy about! There is a lot of vegan products that I can’t use because I’m allergic to Soy products, but recently there has been a lot of new products based on pea protein and other things that are completely soy free. A store chain here in Norway called Coop has released a whole lot of different things like beet burgers, mushroom burgers, corn sliders and what I had for dinner the other day, seasoned taco stuffing made from pea protein. They also have campaigns for meat free Mondays where they share recipes you could try and I really love this change. I’m not fully vegan but I go meat free as often as I can, gradually cutting down on my consumption when I find replacements that are soy free.

Here’s what I had, it totally looks meat, doesn’t it? My dad thought it was, stole a few pieces from the leftovers I brought them and was weirded out by the texture. It does taste great though and it worked well with tortillas, vegan cheese and iceberg lettuce. I usually have a lot more mixed in with my tacos but I couldn’t be bothered to go to the store to buy even more. Sometimes simple meals are the best meals. Do you ever choose vegan options over regular options? If you don’t then you should try it! You’ll feel better about choosing a more healthy lifestyle, just make sure to do it right.

All you gotta do is fry it in some oil or butter for a few minutes.

I found a recipe for a vegan sandwich online quite some time ago, i cannot quite remember where but it has been a part of my life since. I have omitted it a slight bit but it is still true to its origins.

Here is what you will need to recreate my version of it:

  • Bread of your choice, anything goes. I use white bread because my digestive system cannot handle ‘heavy’ food.
  • Some tomato sauce or other condiment to ‘glue’ the spinach onto the bread.
  • Fresh and newly washed spinach.
  • Some paprika, or bell peppers as its called.
  • Squash, preferably slightly thick slices.
  • Half of an avocado
  • Some spices and vegan butter to cook the veggies in. You can use oil too if you prefer that.

Since squash pretty much adapts to whatever flavor you add to it, the sandwich can end up tasting totally different every time you use it. You can also choose different kind of sauces to use between the bread and the spinach, i tend to use a slightly spicy tomato sauce.

All you need to do is put some spinach onto the bread, toss the squash and the bell pepper into the frying pan along with some salt and pepper and any other spice you would wish to add.

Once they are done cooking you arrange them on top of the spinach, i like to put down the squash first, then the bell pepper and then i scoop some avocado on top of it. If you want it to look fancy you can slice up the avocado instead. I’m really just too lazy to make it look pretty.

You can choose to eat it with just the bottom slices of bread or add a second to the top. Usually i let the bread fry a bit in the leftover juices from the veggies but i forgot this time. And since i only use half of the avocado, i like to sprinkle the other half with some salt and eat it with the sandwiches.

So there you go! This doesn’t take long to make, it really just depends on how well cooked you want your veggies to be!

Do you have any sandwich recipes that you love? Feel free to share them with me. They don’t have to be vegan, i just try to eat vegan often to keep my body in balance.
