More Veggies – personal challenge

More Veggies #4: Beetroot vegetable pie

When I spotted this Beetroot vegetable pie (plaattaart) in the Allerhande, I knew that this had to be next vegetarian dish. It looked so delicious and simple that I had to try it and oh I am so happy I did. For my readers that do not live in the Netherlands; Allerhande is a monthly magazine from the Albert Heijn (one of the largest supermarkt chains here). I use it as one of my many inspiration sources. This recipe is filled with fresh vegetables (which I all bought on the market), it is very simple and the ingredients used can be easily substituted if you wish, which is something that I did.

More veggies #3: red lentil curry

Week 3. I really start to be more creative with my food and recipes. I was already thinking of making this dish when I first cooked red lentils. I thought they were going to be similar to black lentils, which are quite firm. But these red ones fell apart and the dish that I made then was somewhat ruined. I researched red lentils for a bit and found that most people use it for red lentil soup and red lentil curry, so this could not miss my More Veggies challenge.

More Veggies #2: Carrot burgers

I am entering week 4 now of my personal vegetarian challenge. For those of you who haven’t read it, I am cutting down my meat consumption by eating vegetarian at least once a week. In my first week I made a vegetarian, homemade pasta. You can read the recipe of it¬†here. So far this personal challenge has triggered my creativity when it comes to making food. I am learning new things, new recipes and start to use products that I haven’t before. One of these products are chickpeas. I have them (unprocessed) stored away in a jar in my kitchen and last week, after talking to one of my colleagues, I finally knew what I wanted to make of them; my first veggie-burger. They are healthy, tasty, colourful.. Need I say more? Click that read more button to read the recipe.

More Veggies #1: Mushroom pasta

I love trying new things in life. Learning a new language, get a new hobby, travel to places I haven’t been yet and of course trying new foods. Growing up, we usually ate a lot of the same things for dinner; boiled potatoes, boiled vegetables and a piece a meat and in winter time the Dutch ‘stampots’. Of course those three things would vary every day and when my mom had less time to cook we would ¬†occassionally eat pasta bolognese or lasagne. (I love lasagne) When I started living on my own I was delighted that I could choose every evening what I wanted to eat.
