Ultimate rustic veggie burger

This ultimate rustic vegan burger is a quick and healthy for those evenings or lunch where you just need something special. I am not going to lei making these burgers takes a bit of effort, but the effort is oh so worth the taste and the crunch. I have been wanting to make my very own vegan burger for ages, but with time not so much on my hands to do it all myself, I always opt for the easy meals. Luckily this time I started early with the prep time and in no time we had fresh patties on homemade pretzel buns. It was so worth it!

Pumpkin fritters

Pumpkin fritters are vegan and oh so delicious! I was so surprised by these fritters that I made them two days in a row and even my better half could not tell the difference. They are crunchy on the inside and super soft and chewy. They remind me so much of my mother's pumpkin fritters that we would have for Sunday lunch and I think even she would say that they are tasty.

Rainbow carrot butternut soup

Rainbow carrot butternut soup is super amazing and so nutritious. The season has come for warming soups and I absolutely love the fact that you can have a nutritional meal within half an hour or so. I made a batch of this lovely soup last week and I finished it in almost a day's time. I served this soup with a soft and chewy bread with a flavor punch, which was super amazing!

Caramelized Butternut Shallot lasagne

Caramelized Butternut Shallot lasagne is perfect for a Sunday lunch or dinner options. It stores pretty well too for a leftover alternative and fills all the holes and gaps for comfort food goodness that the winter creates. Not only is it so easy to prepare, but also a budget saver. This lasagne can go pretty far with a whole roasted butternut, couple slices of whole wheat pasta sheets and creamy bearnaise sauce.

Turmeric chickpea curry

Turmeric chickpea curry and spelt naan is a perfect, quick and easy comforting meal for these colder evenings. In fact, it feels as though summer is still here with us, but it's quite obvious that winter is on the horizon. When the sun starts setting more earlier each day, I want curry. Not that I don't want to eat it always anyway. a True curry lover loves curry whether it's hot or not- in terms of the wheater that is. I like my curry pretty mild thank you very much and this curry ticks all the boxes for me.

Broccoli quinoa corn patties

Broccoli quinoa corn patties are a quick lunch alternative when you're on the go. Loaded with plant-based protein and super filling for those days when you need it the most. Serve with a salad, healthy carbs or as a patty on a vegan burger bun. I made a whole batch of these and froze the rest to eat later. It's a win-win, healthy plus easy is what I need right now.

Rooster koek waffles

Let me introduce you to Roosterkoek if you're not in the know. These are pretty legendary in South Africa. They are the perfect carb loaded bite with a braai (BBQ), a festival filled cheese loaded lunch snack or late night feast item. The best way to eat it is hot off the BBQ or let me tell you, these Roosterkoek waffles are a game changer.

Summer potato salad

Summer potato salad is just a perfect combo when evenings are being spent outside. Lately, we have been firing up the BBQ almost every second night and that is a regular when you live in South Africa. Some families BBQ almost every night, just because it is so social, and we are pretty social people. It has been quite a change when we moved to France because first of all BBQing for yourself is not a lot of fun, haha and secondly what do you make with the meat that you can eat with the leftovers the next day? Potato salad of course...
