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.
