Spicy beans on samp

Spicy beans on samp are the ultimate comfort food for me right now. Samp is such a needed item in every South African household. I recently started to use it more often for side dishes to a braai. I even paired it with a tangy tomato sauce to accompany this hearty starchy meal as part of a plant-based dinner or light lunch. What's even more wonderful about this dish is that you can make a huge batch for a big crowd or even for your week meal prep.

Chutney cauliflower popcorn bowls

Date night cauliflower popcorn bowls are the perfect easy meal to impress or just to have a good time with your pals on Valentine's day. These beautiful flavorful bowls are loaded with flavor, texture, spice, now if that's not needed on valentine's then I don't know what is! I just love cauliflower because it gives so much oomf to a plant-based meal, and particularly baked to crispy perfection like these beauties right here.

Cajun burger salad bowl

Cajun burger salad bowl is the perfect light lunch or dinner. This protein-packed meal is super filling and ticks all of the boxes when you're looking for something easy and light. I love sweet potato and adding this to the burger, with little pops of white beans in between every bite is just perfection. Not only is this burger patty the real deal, but also the loaded fries salad that goes along with it.

Tangy Lentil pumpkin Bobotie

Tangy Lentil pumpkin Bobotie is a must-make recipe for veggie lovers and meat-lover alike. This recipe is one that I have been making so many times over the couple of years that I have lost count. Normally it's made with meat, but in this case, I added brown lentils that work even better, because it makes it super starchy and a plant-based protein powerhouse meal to boot.

Cauliflower walnut Bolognese

Cauliflower walnut bolognese is a wonderful way to spruce up your meatless Monday. This meal is made with simple ingredients that won't break the bank and can be put together in no time at all. Plus the upside of this dish is that you get your vegetable fix plus a whole lot of flavor in one, now that is a winning combo if I say so myself.

Festive plant-based bowl

The festive plant-based bowl couldn't come at a better time. Christmas is around the corner and we are spending Christmas with friends this year, which is great since I am certainly not in the mood for cooking. But I'll be carrying along some of these delish goodies on this plate right here. The miso mushroom gravy is absolutely out of this world and the combo of this with the smooth mash, spicy-sweet veggie roast, and crunchy seed loaf is a winning combination. Christmas is going to jolly..!

Pumpkin red onion marmalade burger

Pumpkin red onion marmalade burger is the ultimate comfort food. Christmas is right around the corner and for an easy-breezy menu, these burgers are the way to go. For now, this burger is on my mind, with the perfect flavors of all combined in one bite. Who needs more fuss this time of the year, am I right. All I need right now is an easy all-round plant-based meal. They may be a pretty lazy way to celebrate Christmas, but they are legitly lekker, and that's what I need in my life right now, just saying!

Golden carrot parsnip stew

Golden carrot parsnip stew is my favorite stew at the moment. I haven't made a whole lot of stews just because soup has been on my agenda, but gosh what have I been missing. This golden lentil carrot and parsnip stew are so super delish! I have been making it on repeat three times in a row, so you got to know it's seriously good!

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!
