Rainbow Chard And Sweet Potato Curry With Turmeric And Ginger

Rainbow Chard And Sweet Potato Curry With Turmeric And Ginger

Our guests often buy rainbow chard because it’s so pretty, and then they do not know what to do with it. This is why we researched a bit and came up with this curry recipe as a simple and delicious solution.

It’s seasoned just with immune-boosting ginger, turmeric and garlic, and some mustard seeds, but feel free to add some other spices that you like (maybe cumin or coriander) at the beginning of the cooking process. You can of course also vary the quantities of the vegetable ingredients, or add more vegetable broth to turn it into more of a (lentil) soup. In any case it will be a nice and healthy meal for a cold autumn night. You can also try out our Laksa Soup or Roasted carrot soup.

Swiss Chard And Sweet Potato Curry With Turmeric And Ginger

I often buy rainbow chard because it’s so pretty, and then I don’t know what to do with it. This is why I researched a bit and came up with this curry recipe as a simple and delicious solution. It’s seasoned just with immune-boosting ginger, turmeric and garlic, and some mustard seeds, but feel free to add some other spices that you like (maybe cumin or coriander) at the beginning of the cooking process. You can of course also vary the quantities of the vegetable ingredients, or add more vegetable broth to turn it into more of a (lentil) soup. In any case it will be a nice and healthy meal for a cold autumn night.

Ingredients

  • One piece of ginger, about 2 cm (or one inch)
  • One similar piece of fresh turmeric (or half a teaspoon of ground turmeric)
  • Two cloves of garlic
  • One large sweet potato
  • About three or four large leaves of rainbow chard (or regular swiss chard)
  • Two teaspoons of vegetable oil
  • 50 grams (or one quarter cup) of red lentils
  • A pinch of mustard seeds
  • 200 ml (a little less than one cup) of water or vegetable broth (in case of the latter, use less salt for seasoning)
  • Salt
  • A few cilantro leaves (optional)
  • A splash of lemon juice (optional)

How To Prepare

Step 1: Peel the garlic and the turmeric (careful, it will stain everything yellow) and grate them or dice them as finely as possible.

Step 2: Peel and chop the garlic into small pieces.

Step 3: Peel the sweet potato and cut it into bite sized pieces.

Step 4: Wash the chard leaves and trim the bottom of the stems if necessary. Chop the stems and the leaves into thin stripes. Keep the chopped stems and leaves separate.

Step 5: Heat up the oil in a large saucepan. Add the mustard seeds, close the lid and wait till you hear them pop.

Step 6: Then add the ginger, turmeric and garlic, stir everything and let the spices fry for a minute.

Step 7: Add the lentils, the sweet potato cubes and the chopped stems of the chard. Stir everything well. Add a little more oil if you feel the vegetables are sticking to the bottom of the pan.

Step 8: After two or three minutes, add the water or broth. Half close the lid and let the vegetables simmer for about 15 minutes.

Step 9: Then add the swiss chard leaves. Stir everything well and season with a little salt. Lower the heat and let the leaves wilt together with the other vegetables for about five minutes. Now everything should be cooked through but not yet mushy.

Step 10: Add a little cilantro and a little lemon juice according to your taste.

This dish is going to be really delicious to eat, but are you really going to eat without any dessert planned? You can try out this vegan shortcrust pastry in desserts.

Roasted Carrot Soup Recipe

Roasted Carrot Soup Recipe

Roasting vegetables not only makes the kitchen smells great, it also concentrates their flavor. So anything roasted makes a great base for soups. You can also try out other soups that we offer like Creamy Pumpkin soup or Laksa Soup at Sozo Cafe. The carrots here become rather sweet, which is why the slightly sour sumac is a great addition. This soup doesn’t need much else, except for salt and a little shallot. And olive oil of course. I also tried to incorporate the carrot greens by turning them into a tangy pesto.

On their own they are a little bitter, but mixed with mint they taste fresh and bright. Carrot tops, like many other leafy greens (think beetroot, kohlrabi or radish) are often not even sold, although they are very nutritious. Parsley works as a substitute in this recipe, but I find it’s worth looking out for fresh, preferably organic carrots with greens and use them too.

Roasted Carrot Soup With Sumac And Carrot-Green Pesto

Ingredients

  • Ten medium-sized carrots, ideally with the greens still attached
  • Three teaspoons of olive oil (in total)
  • One teaspoon of sumac
  • A handful of carrot greens (if you don’t have the greens, use parsley instead)
  • A handful of mint leaves
  • Half a teaspoon of apple cider vinegar
  • One shallot
  • One clove of garlic
  • Salt

How To Prepare

Step 1: Cut off the greens and peel the carrots or wash them well. Place them in a parchment paper-lined baking tray and sprinkle with one teaspoon of olive oil, half a teaspoon of sumac and a pinch of salt.

Step 2: Roast the carrots in the oven at 200 degrees Celsius (400 F) for about 30 to 40 minutes or until tender. You might want to turn on the grill for the last five minutes or so to brown them a little.

Step 3: While the carrots are roasting, chop the greens and the mint and mix them in a blender with the vinegar, one teaspoon of olive oil, one clove of garlic, and a pinch or two of salt.

Step 4: Heat a teaspoon of olive oil in a saucepan and add the chopped shallot and half a teaspoon of sumac. Fry for a minute or so. Then add the now roasted carrots and a cup or so of water. Cook for five minutes.

Step 5: With an immersion blender, blend the carrots until they are smooth. Add more water if the soup is too thick. Season with salt.

For serving, top the soup with the pesto. Add a pinch more sumac if you like. Enjoy! Once you have enjoyed you soup, you can try out rhubarb beetroot salad for dinner and later, for dessert, you can go for vegan pastries!

Creamy Pumpkin And Burnt Aubergine Soup With Za’atar

Creamy Pumpkin And Burnt Aubergine Soup With Za’atar

Recently I watched Gabrielle Hamilton make a particularly delicious-looking dish on ‘The Mind of a Chef’. She chargrilled aubergines over the open flame of a gas burner, then turned them into a simple but sumptuous spread with lemon juice, olive oil, parsley and freshly-baked flatbread. Around the same time a friend told me about an Ottolenghi/ Tamimi recipe for burnt aubergine soup. I decided to give those aubergines a try and ended up with this pumpkin-sweet potato-aubergine mix.

It’s a warming, spicy and smooth soup, perfect for chilly autumn days. I didn’t dare roasting aubergines over the open flame in my kitchen but instead chose to grill them in the oven, which achieves – I find – the same result: the burnt aubergine has a light smokey flavor, which is a perfect complement to the sweetness of the pumpkin and the deep aroma of the za’atar. Try it, I’m sure you will love it!

Creamy Pumpkin and Burnt Aubergine Soup with Za’atar

Ingredients

  • One medium- sized aubergine
  • One small pumpkin or medium-sized squash
  • One medium-sized sweet potato
  • 3-4 teaspoons of olive oil
  • Half a teaspoon of coriander seeds
  • Half a teaspoon of cumin seeds
  • A pinch of cinnamon
  • One teaspoon of za’atar
  • 1 cup / 250 ml of almond milk, maybe more to taste
  • Salt
  • Juice of one or two lemons
  • Water
  • A pinch of urfa chili or other chili flakes
  • A few parsley leaves for garnish

How To Prepare

Step 1: Turn up the grill of your oven to F 450 (250 degrees C). Cut the aubergine in half and place it face down on a tinfoil-lined baking tray, which has been greased with a little olive oil. Place the tray directly under the grill (note that for this recipe you only need one aubergine, but of course it would make sense to roast two or three at the same time). Roast the aubergine for about twenty minutes. Its skin should get blackened and crackly, the inside will be meltingly soft.

Step 2: Meanwhile, cut the pumpkin and the sweet potato in half. Lay out the pieces on another baking tray and put it in the lower part of the oven. Bake the pumpkin and the sweet potato along with the aubergines for about fifteen minutes or until softened. Then set aside to cool for a few minutes.

Step 3: When cool enough to handle, de-seed the pumpkin and cut it into smaller cubes or chunks, and peel the sweet potato.

Step 4: When they are almost melted, take the aubergine halves out of the oven and place them in a bowl to cool, make sure to catch all the juices. Cut off an inch or so of the aubergine and set aside. Carefully scoop out the flesh from the rest and discard the charred skin.

Step 5: Heat two teaspoons of olive oil in a large pot. Using a mortar and pestle (or a wooden spoon and a bowl, if you don’t have one), smash the coriander and cumin seeds and add them to the oil, along with the cinnamon and half a teaspoon of za’atar. Let the spices brown a little so they release their flavor.

Step 6: Then add the aubergine, sweet potato and pumpkin pieces, stirring well.

Step 7: Take the soup off the stove and puree it well with a mixer or in a food processor. Add water if it’s too thick, or more almond milk if you’d like a more creamy consistency. Season with salt and more lemon juice to taste.

Step 8: Add the almond milk, a generous pinch of salt and the lemon juice. Cook for a few minutes so the flavors can blend together.

Step 9: Before serving, heat up the soup. Cut the remaining piece of aubergine with the skin into small cubes and place them in the center of the soup. Sprinkle the rest of the za’atar over the soup as well as some chilli flakes. Garnish with the parsley leaves and add maybe a few drops of olive oil, or a little more almond milk.

Vegan Lamington Recipe

Vegan Lamington Recipe

A vegan Lamington sponge cake? The initial part is exceptionally dry, nearly stale and the second is yummy, however, it is not always a sponge cake. For those not acquainted with the lamington, it’s an Aussie classic. A traditional sponge, soaked in delicious chocolate topping and smothered with shredded coconut. My favorite range is the ones with a jam centre and in some cases also a little vegan cream. You can try out our Vegan shortcrust panstries recipe.

We’ve been serving this great sponge dish for quite some time. This lamington sponge is; gently textured and enhanced by a pleasantly thick and also rich chocolate ganache. Finished off with a jam centre as well as topped with shredded coconut, it is the best dish to include in your spring menu. Finish off with fresh strawberries and also edible blossoms and you will see that this lamington sponge truly is as rather on the eye as it gets on taste. We serve it with and without whipped dairy-free cream. Something is for sure, I guarantee you, it will not last longer before it is all gobbled up.

How to Make Lamingtons Step by Step

This vegan lamington sponge cake takes approximately 45 minutes to prepare in a gas stove at 180 degrees. My oven is an older stove, and so I make sure to use a stove thermostat that sits on the rack alongside the cake. This way, we can occasionally check to make sure the temperature is not fluctuating. If you’re new to cooking or have experienced a few baking catastrophes, I would certainly urge you to purchase a thermostat so you can be sure your temperature level is right.

We established our timer for 45 minutes right now, you must lightly press the centre of the cake with my finger. The cake needs to ‘recuperate’ (not wobble) somewhat that’s how you understand it prepares. Once the cake is cooked, We turn the warmth off and also leave the oven door open for 10 minutes to permit the cake to slowly cool off rather than removing it directly from the oven.

If after 45 mins your cake is still shaky you may require to cook it for a little longer. This is ok yet if your cake is transforming extremely brown ahead, it’s an indicator that the oven is too hot. Transform the stove down somewhat as well as prolong your food preparation time.

This vegan lamington dish returns enough for 1 common cake, to construct a lovely layered cake, double the dish as well as split amongst 2 cake tins.

Vegan Shortcrust Pastry Recipe

Vegan Shortcrust Pastry Recipe

Pie crust is perhaps among the worlds most challenging things to make. It appears to be incredibly challenging, yet fortunately, there is this simple plant-based method to do so!

Ehem, getting back to pie crust: every once in a while over the last couple of years we have tried to make a basic vegan pie crust recipe. We tested other individuals dishes; we tried out techniques and also ingredient ratios; sometimes, in the start, we failed. It would undoubtedly crumble, look horrible, as well as come to be wooden when prepared.

After that wizard struck! By wizard I mean my Nana. My mother has been using my Nana’s pie crust dish since, well considering that I bear in mind existing. I had asked my mom to send me the recipe, and also it ends up it’s generally vegan pastry recipe except for the milk which is a super very easy below. I tried, and warm dang, it worked ultimately! It fasted, all the pointers, as well as methods, existed, and it was easy as can be!

I guess you can consider our this recipe as a family members trick. Hopefully, Nana will be grinning down on me as well as calm with me on sharing this slightly adapted version and also praising her awesomeness. Yes? My spidey detects say yes.

That’s how much we like you, people! We are sharing a household secret with you because you’re my family. Aww shucks, group globe hug.

So why does this dish job perfectly where our other efforts fell short? 3 reasons, the appropriate ratios of components, as well as two incredibly secret ideas that we promise made all of the difference. 1 suggestion from my Nana, and 1 tip from my Grandmother. Since’s collaboration!

This dish ends up the ideal pie crust, conveniently as well as swiftly. It’s flaky and delicious without much initiative. This dish makes one pie crust, however, if you desire 2 pie crusts, do not hesitate to double or triple the bowl as required.

Some people may be dissuaded to get their hands in the dough due to the fact that they do not assume they’re good cooks or just because they believe it requires tons of time to get it done, but I assure you that making our very own bread is an easy-peasy job that will truly shock you!

Vegan Shortcrust Pastry Recipe

As pointed out before, to make our very own vegan shortcrust bread, we will just require just 3 ingredients

They would be:

– Ordinary flour

– Cocoa butter or Shea Butter (whichever you find ideal)

– Coldwater

To form the vegan pastry dough, we can follow 2 methods: by hand or with a food mill.

Step 1: If using hands we initially require to work in a large dish, the cocoa or shea butter and the flour together, till it begins looking like coarse breadcrumbs. Now it’s time to start putting as much cold water as required to make the dough collaborated.

Step 2: Cover the dough in clingfilm as well as put in the fridge for at least 15 mins prior to using.
