Hey there dear readers!
This blog post comes one day late but since we have a public holiday in Germany today, it was more convenient to write this post today. We also didn’t have much time yesterday because we went to the Vegan Street Day in Stuttgart! We ate sooo much delicious vegan food, there really is a plantbased version of every animal food out there! 🙂
Ken cooked such a yummy dinner tonight & decided he wants to share the recipe – hope y’all like it as much as we did! A red lentil curry with quinoa. A perfect idea for dinner especially if you want to have a delicious way to eat a high amount of plant protein!
Red lentil curry with quinoa
Wash the quinoa in a fine colander and cook it with the double the amount of water. Let it cook for 15 minutes. Add a little bit of salt.
You can cut the onion and the garlic while the quinoa is cooking. If you’re also cooking without oil, just add a little bit of water in the pan when you’re roasting the onions.
When they’re translucent add the lentils, the frozen spinach, 500ml of vegetable stock and garlic. Close the pan with a lid and let it simmer. While it’s cooking, cut the eggplant and the bell pepper.
When the vegetables are ready and the lentils are already cooking for a few minutes, add the veggies into the pan.
Also add the coconut milk and add the spices you'd like to have for your curry. Since I love the taste of garlic, I added an extra portion of garlic powder. You also don’t want to miss a good amount of curry powder and/or curry paste in the meal.
If everything cooked for a short while and the lentils are soft, you can make a taste test and add more spices as you desire.
If you have any suggestions on how to improve the recipes on we stray and stay, please feel free to write it in the comments below! It would also be amazing if you’d send us a photo of your creations!
In two weeks we’ll probably be back with a travel-post about our short trip to Bavaria!

New week – new post!
This time I write about a topic which you may not expect on our blog, but since I am a big fan of watching TV shows I wanted to share my current favorites! They vary from time to time and I also find it very difficult to bring it down to a top 5. Maybe they will be completely different when I’ll do another post in a few months.
Hey dear readers!
In Germany we had the first beautiful sunny days in 2018 this week. We spent them together in Tuebingen, the city where Anouk lives. Did you have some nice sunny days this year already?
Since I felt some nice summer vibes I decided to make some cupcakes with a berry frosting. Berries are typical summer fruits for us so that fitted quite well. The muffins turned out really amazing and if you’re not in the mood for such a heavy frosting you can simply add some fruits or chocolate into the muffin dough.
After I moved into my new shared flat I wasn’t able to develop new recipes or do a lot of food photography because I was too busy with moving in, decorating and organizing everything. Now since a bit of time passed I am better organized and I find the time again! Therefore we come back with a new recipe this week!
Oven baked nachos! You can eat it as a dinner, take it with you for lunch or have it for a relaxed movie evening!
Hej and welcome!
Today’s topic is Sweden, the country we moved to and some tips how you can do the same. It won’t be a step by step tutorial, but more like a general advice set. Before we get started with some tips let’s read a bit about Sweden in general.
Quick facts about Sweden:
- The population in Sweden is around 10 million people where 2 million are under the age of 18. Its capital Stockholm has a bit more than 900.000 inhabitants.
- Fika is one of the first words you learn in Sweden. Basically it is a coffee or tea break together with sweets, cinnamon buns or fruits. The average Swede drinks 3,2 cups coffee per day.
- The sale of alcohol which contains more than 3,5% is only allowed in the “Systembolaget”, the state owned alcohol monopoly. The prices are also very high. For example the price of the cheapest half a liter of beer in a can is around 12 SEK (≈1,20€). More than 60% of the price are taxes.
- Sweden is a very “green” country. Over 50% of Swedens energy comes from renewable energy.
- If you are lucky and its the right season you can see Northern Lights all over Sweden but you have way higher chances in the north.
I hope everyone is doing fine in the last hours of 2017. This was an exciting year for us and hopefully the upcoming year will be as exciting as this one! We traveled a lot and we saw nearly whole Scandinavia, we moved to another country, we started living together in our own flat for the first time and we did so many more amazing things this year. I am very thankful for one of the most beautiful years in my life.
This years last post will be another recipe. A quick one, so maybe you can even make it before you go to your New Years Eve party as an amazing vegan snack! Lets start…
