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!
Anouk & Ken
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 there from Germany!
We’re back in the country of beer and beautiful forests since last Thursday 🙂
It’s much warmer here than in Stockholm at the moment and we enjoy the time with our families very much. Not so long until we leave again, this time for South East Asia! And let me say, we’re beyond excited..:) So if you have any last-minute tips on vegan restaurants, cafés, nice beaches or other cool stuff to do in the South of Thailand, Cambodia or Vietnam, definitely let us know! We appreciate it 🙂
Due to our travels, we probably won’t post on here in the next few weeks. But after that we’ll tell you everything about our trip!
Today we want to show you some of our favourite vegan restaurants in Stockholm. In comparison to the South of Germany around Stuttgart, there are so many vegan places in Stockholm! Hopefully this will change in Stuttgart as well 🙂
Without further do, let’s begin!
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…
The Christmas feeling really has arrived for us. We recently got our first cute little Christmas tree together, I will make our own Christmas ornaments, we listen to Christmas songs and of course we already baked delicious Christmas cookies! 🙂 Besides that we really enjoy our last remaining weeks in Stockholm with our friends and are already a bit sad when we think of leaving Sweden soon.
We hope you all feel as grateful and happy as we do these days and that you enjoy the Christmas atmosphere wherever you are!
