Vegan-food, tips and tricks!

I would like to start up a discussion about people's favorite vegan food.

A classic dish that I often do is the red lense-soup. You need crushed tomatoes (canned or fresh), red lenses, lemon, onion, garlic, vegetarian seasoning and some herbs (oregano and basilica is my favorites).

Start with frying the chopped onion in oil. When it's done, add water and lences (about three times more water then lenses, depending on how thick you want the soup to get). Now you can add lemon. I use both the juice and the shell. Also add the seasoning sauce, and salt and pepper. When the lences are boiled long enough, remove from the oven and add the herbs and garlic.

This is very easy to do and after eating it it takes a long time to get hungry again.

what are youre favorites?
I'm not a vegan. But a great vegan food is tofu. I love it. It's full of good proteins.

I want to share with you the Chilli cakes recipe.

You would need 250g split peas, 2 or 3 green or red chillies (as few or as many as you like), 2 tablespoons chopped coriander leaves, 2 tablespoons finely chopped spring onions, salt to taste, 1/2 teaspoon whole cumin seeds or powdered cumin, and oil for frying.

Then, wash the split peas in running water. Allow to soak in water for at least 3 - 4 hours (preferably overnight). Drain the split peas thoroughly by placing in a sieve and allowing to drain for a few minutes. Put in a blender and blend to a combination of fine and not so fine consistency. Alternatively buy the split peas in grinded form (not too fine and not too coarse) and soak before use). There must be enough fines to bind the chilli cake together. Then, you would need to add all the other ingredients to the ground peas and mix well together. Add a little bit of water if necessary. Heat up the oil over hot to medium heat. Shape mixture into small balls and deep fry in batches until golden brown. Make sure that the whole chilli cake is cooked. Adjust heat if necessary to ensure thorough cooking. Lastly, drain and place over several layers of kitchen absorbent paper to absorb the extra oil. Serve hot with fresh bread or eat as a snack.

Bon appetit! Very Happy
