Lazy Vegetarian Meal Ideas #25 Chickpea and Kale Delight

Originally posted on News, reviews and cooking tips:
I love chickpeas. Like, seriously. I could write a sonnet about chickpeas. Chickpeas are cheap, tasty and protein filled beauties and I don’t know what I would do without them, and they are also fabulously cheap! This recipe is my take on the more traditional spinach and chickpea combo; kale has a slightly sweeter taste, but I prefer it personally. What you need: A can of chickpeas, about half a pack of kale, olive oil, an onion. Spices: Asafoetida, fenugreek, tumeric, chilli powder, cumin, coriander seeds, mustard seeds, salt, pepper, chilli flakes 1: Heat oil in a large saucepan and add some asafoetida and mustard seeds. Heat the oil over a medium heat for a few minutes (chop the onion in the mean time) until it becomes fragrant. Then turn up the heat, add the onions and spices and fry for five-seven minutes 2: Add the kale and sauté on a medium heat for a few minutes. Then add the chickpeas and some more spices and fry for about five…

Sweet potato and black bean chili

Originally posted on foodbycamilla:
In my opinion,  Chili is an essential recipe during the winter.This hearty vegetarian chili includes sweet potato and black beans along with flavourful seasoning such as cumin, cinnamon and chili powder.  This chili is bursting with flavour and is my favorite chili recipe at the moment. This chili is the perfect healthy weeknight meal. You can even make it and take it with you for lunch,  I am sure you will make everyone jealous! I’ve also added a few optional topping ideas such as avocado and coriander.Eat the chili as it is, or serve it with brown rice or quinoa. ? ? Ingredients ( serves 4 people).  1 large sweet potato 1 can black beans approximately 450 gram  (15 oz). 1 can chopped tomatoes approximately  400 gram  ( 14 oz). 1/2 onion 2 gloves garlic 2 tsp chilli 1 1/2 tsp cumin 1/2 tsp cinnamon oil for cooking salt and pepper 3 tsp lime juice ?

Best-Ever Black Bean Burgers

Originally posted on Erin Leigh Ever After:
I’ve eaten a whole lot of veggie burgers throughout my vegetarian life. Rarely have I ever made them myself, and this recipe really outshines anything you can buy in the freezer aisle. It takes a little bit longer to make this recipe, so if you’re always in a time crunch after work like me, hold off on this recipe until the weekend. I often find myself facing a major problem in trying new recipes: I don’t have a food processor. But I found a secret hack to the lack of food processor- an electric mixer. It seriously works like a charm! This recipe in particular comes from Ambitious Kitchen, but I made a few alterations that worked better for me. This recipe originally calls for half of a jalepeno and 2 teaspoons of spicy cajun spices, but I am not a big fan of spicy food so I took it out. It also called for sprouts as a topping on the burgers which in general are delicious, but I…

My Daily Bread // Family Chili Recipe.

It’s that time of year. Your Christmas tree is probably up, most of the Thanksgiving leftovers have been eaten through, and possibly, there’s a little bit of snow on the ground. For me, two of those things are true,?still no snow days for me yet! But even if none of those things are true, you cannot go wrong with chili. If I thought my last time in the kitchen was bad, then this time is in a category all it’s own. I have to admit, getting the hang of cooking is much harder than it looks! Getting all the right ingredients, preparing the food successfully, everything running smoothly, at the same/correct time, and then coming out deliciously? Much harder said then done. But, I learn something new every time. This time around I found out just how important it is to have simple recipes when you don’t cook often. One reason is, you will waste a ton of money on random ingredients that will end up going bad before you…

Macadamia Nut-Crusted Chicken with Lemon Dressing

It’s December – the best time of the year – and officially summer holiday in South Africa. Without college, my day-to-day has been left with an almost empty schedule and a lot of  unproductive free time. I’ve had to physically pull myself away from the allure of binge watching series (I’m talking  The Mindy Project all day, errryday) or watching Hotline Bling remakes over and over (so, so good). As  fulfilling as both of those things might sound, after a day or two of doing them (okay fine a week) I needed to take a step away from technology. It’s always the right time to start doing things that make your soul happy and I really want to cherish the free time I have while on holiday.  So here I am, experimenting every damn day in the kitchen because my heart either belongs there or on a beach somewhere in Ibiza – and I just can’t seem to have both this time. My kitchen days have given me this beauty of a recipe to share.…

The Canteen: An Awesome Review.

The crowd at the Awesome Canteen. | Photo taken by blog author. My Sunday began just like any other Sunday — oversleeping because I’ve slept far too late on Saturday night. How typical of me. No matter how many times I berate myself for having such awful sleeping habits, you can’t blame me either because I bust my chops on weekdays, sleeping early just so I can wake up early the next day for work. Naturally, I’d sleep in on weekends. But I will admit that waking up at mid day does take half my day away when I could be up and about, doing a million things before lunch. Nevertheless, my husband and I managed to rouse ourselves awake and shake the cobwebs from our heads. That question bugged us again though: “What shall we have for lunch?” Normally, my husband would go out and buy lunch back but today, I felt like having something different. I felt like going to a new place and trying a new…
