High-Protein Vegetarian Mushroom Stroganoff

I adapted this one from Katie’s recipe but scaled it down to serve only one person. Also I cut back on the cooking time to make sure there was still some crunch left in the vegetables as I like them a bit chewy.

Ingredients:

80g onion, finely chopped

75g mushrooms, sliced

1 clove garlic, minced

70g carrot, sliced in coins

75g green snap beans, halved

125 ml water

For the sauce:

30g tomato paste

60g tofu (such as silken firm)

125 ml water

3/4 tbsp white wine vinegar

1/4 tsp salt

pepper to taste

Saute the onions in a medium pan for about a minute. Add mushrooms and garlic and saute a few minutes more.

Add carrots, snap beans and a dash of salt and saute a while longer. Then add 125 ml water.

Bring to a boil, cover and cook on low for 20-25 min. (most of the water should be gone and the vegetables should be cooked but still firm)

Meanwhile combine all ingredients for the sauce in a blender or food processor and blend until completely smooth.

After 20-25 minutes add mixture to the pan and bring to a boil. Lower heat to medium and contonue to cook (uncovered, stirring occasoinally) until thick, about 10 minutes.

Serve with a piece of nice whole-meal bread.

Raw Brownie

I’ve collected tons of recipes for raw brownie these past months and when I saw yet another recipe on ‘lidt om alt – og meget om meget‘ I though that it was time to try it out. It’s very loosely based around her recipe since I just used whatever I had on hands. Here’s how my recipe turned out:

Ingredients:

40g + 20g almonds

35g + 5g cashew nuts

75g dried dates (such as medjool)

35g dried apricots

1-2 tbsp water

18g unsweetened cocoa powder (about 2 tbsp)

1 small tbsp coffee, ground (4g)

More ground coffee and raw cocoa nibs for garnishing

Line a pan or similar with clingwrap

Grind 40g almonds and 35g cashew nuts into a flour-like consistency.

Blend dried fruit with water. After a while mix in cocoa powder and ground coffee.

Roughly chop the rest of the nuts (20g almonds and 5g cashews).

Knead all ingredients together in a bowl and pres mixture into lined baking pan.

Place in fridge for a few hours and cut into 8 pieces.

Garnish with a sprinkle of ground coffee and raw cocoa nibs
