Oven-roasted veggies with green pea and kale mash

Most veggies get delicious when roasted in the oven. No oil is needed, and you can spice whith whatever you like.

The green peas and the kale are mashed together in a mixer, and spiced to taste with grinded horseradish and seasalt. You might need a dash of water and oil to make it a bit smoother. 


Salad for lunch is a must

I really missed it yesterday – afterwards – not having salad for lunch. Though the Kitchari was really nice at the time I ate it.

So today, back to normal. Kidneybeans, quinoa, a beetroot,  kale… and more…

Yummy!


Kale on the menu

Is kale the most nutritious vegetable?

At least it seems so to me. Among with other kinds of brassica-varieties. Cabbage, broccoli et cetera. Fully stuffed with vitamins and minerals, and it adds lots of good roughage to your diet.
But above all. It’s good! Tastes good, and it do you good.

I like it raw as well as cooked, but particularly as something like this.  Added to a soup, casserole, wok or hotchpotch just before serving. Still raw, just a little bit warmed up. And flavoured with spices of choice. Delicious!

Today with wholegrain rice, sweetcorn, green peas, red bell pepper. onion, garlic and chili.

 


Bean burgers & Wok

The burgers are made of big white beans which I boiled about 5 minutes extra and mashed with butter, salt and a pinch of finely grounded blackpepper. Some liquid might be needed, I used the boiling water, but be careful! The mash is as its best when firm!

This and veggies I had for dinner one day. The next day, I mixed the leftover mash with about the same amount sticky cooked rise and a tablespoon of teff flour and rice flour. Spiced the mix to taste and fried burgers in coconut oil.

The green is what here in Sweden is called black-cabbage. Svartkål. It must be a kind of kale, dark green in color and chewier than the lighter green variety. It’s soooo good for the health!!!!!
I chopped it thinly and fried it in olive oil for a couple of minutes on fairly high temperature. Spiced it with salt, black pepper and lemon juice. It was soooo delicious!
The cherry tomatoes was also fried on high temperature for a short time. They have to be hot all the way through, of course, and starting to get nice color and getting cracks in the skin from the heat. No extra spices are needed! Unless you want to.

When in the store I got the suggestion to cook the kale with some cream and than add parmesan cheese when serving it. But I never even touch anything any longer that is made from milk! But I have this yeast-product at home for the richness of vitamin B, which can be used instead of parmesan on pasta and other courses, and the taste and texture actually reminds very much of parmesan. Tastes even better! I was never fond of parmesan.
