METHOD:


Finely chop 1 onion and sauté in a bit of oil.


Then add 1l of boiling water to it together with 2 peeled sweet potatoes, 1 chopped courgette, the juice of 1 lemon, 1 heaped tsp of finely chopped ginger, 1 heaped tsp of minced garlic and 1 1/2 stock cubes.


Let cook for 15 minutes.


Then transfer the soup into a heat resistant blender and blend. Add some soy sauce to taste as well. I like sweet potatoes but I always find they need lots more seasoning to make them taste even better. Blend again to mix with the soy sauce.


Serve in a soup bowl and add chopped basil leaves in. Cut 1 firm tofu block into small cubes (no need to cook it, the heat of the soup will warm it up) and add to the soup as well.


Enjoy!

Vegan spinach rice balls - high in protein and iron

I wanted to make something healthy again so I thought of a dish that's high in protein and iron as well. So these rice balls not only contain spinach, gram flour and almonds, all of which are rich in plant-protein and iron. And to boost the taste I also added black kalamata olives.

Vegan bacon - gluten-free, high in protein & super easy to make

I've been experimenting a bit and thought wouldn't it be nice to have a bacon alternative that's not mushrooms like in many other vegan recipes. Something that's very high in protein while at the same time vegan and healthier than real bacon with a similar texture. So I tried and tested and came up with this absolutely mouth-watering tofu bacon recipe.
