Vegan mayonnaise

IMG_1299 IMG_1300-1Mayo, mayo, mayo <3 Don’t worry, you don’t have to steal anyone’s eggs to make it… It’s actually really simple! Just four ingredients and a handblender, and there you have it (and it looks really cool, when the oil-milk-vinegar-salt-mixture almost magically becomes mayonnaise).

Vegan chickpea pâté

IMG_1307-minGoing vegan means changing up the old recipes a bit. Without eggs or cheese to contribute to a good texture in a chickpea pâté, it took a few tries to get it right – not too dry, not too wet. I think the secret is getting the “dough” kind of wet but then allowing it plenty of time in the oven. This recipe is for a big portion – 2 loaf pans, as you see on the photo. I think it’s great to have a few things to keep in the freezer, for when time’s short. Here’s how I did it (remember to soak the chickpeas overnight if you’re using dry ones):

Spicy bean soup

IMG_1304-minThis is how you boost your immune system and metabolism and stock up on proteins! It’s spicy, creamy and vegan, what’s not to like? 😉 I suggest you do like I did and use dried beans – it’s cheaper and you really don’t need to prepare much. A little planning ahead is all. Just put the beans in a bowl with water before you go to bed and let it soak overnight. In the morning (or whenever you have time), you put them in a pot to boil an hour or two (depending on the kind of beans you’re using). You don’t have to stand there and watch them boil, so it really isn’t that much work to prepare the beans for cooking 🙂

Pearl barley salad

IMG_1278-minPearl barley fills you up and adds some chew to a salad. It’s got a high content of dietary fiber and you also spoil your body with some protein, iron and kalcium. It’s pretty simple to prepare, so while you’re at the boiling, make a big portion and have enough for next day’s lunch too.

Vegan lunch bagel on the go

IMG_1217Delicious and easy to prepare! I had it for my 3 hour train ride from Copenhagen to Aarhus 🙂 I normally kind of avoid bagels because they have sooo many calories in them. But they’re delicious! So if you need a treat, try this 🙂 Also, being a vegetarian or vegan, zinc is one of the things that we need to be aware of eating – and amongst tofu, tempeh, miso, nuts, seeds and legumes we get it from wholegrain. So yes, there are quite some calories in this meal, but good things as well!

Vegan nori rolls
