Full of vitamins

☼ Hello baby suns ! 😀

Do you love fresh juices ? Do you think something could be better ? I love making fresh juices, because I can add all the fruits and vegetables I want in it, and also nuts ! 😀

If you can have local and organic (bio) veggies, it would be better for your health, of course, and I’m pretty sure that if they come from your garden, you will appreciate it much more. But, let’s stop dreaming, and this is the recipe of this DE-LI-CIOUS juice ! :3

  • Ingredients (for approx. 500 ml)
    • Gala Apples (2)
    • Carrots (2 medium)
    • White grapes (11)
    • Persimmon / Kaki (1)
    • Celery (1 branch)
    • Lemon (1/2)
    • Ginger ( 1 little piece)
    • Almonds (2 tblsp)
  • Preparation
    • Soak carrots, celery and almonds in cold water for 30 min (I let it for 2 or 3 hours ^^” )
    • Prepare the fruits :
      • peel the lemon
      • remove the grains of lemon and apples
      • cut the apples
    • Turn on your juice extractor and add your veggies one after the other ! 😀
    • Serve in glasses or a jug/jar

☼ ENJOY ☼

 

Caramelised tofu

☼ Hiya little suns ! 🙂

Hope you are doing well.

This is the dinner I have for my come back in Oxford, UK. I wanted to “veganise” one meal I love : the caramelised pork. This is not the Asian version, but the New-Caledonian one, and we were just tasting the heaven my lil brother and I each time we had the chance to eat this meal.

But, as a vegan, I don’t want to eat a pig anymore ! So, I used tofu (Mom bought me tofu, so I had to find something to do with it ! xd )

Here is my recipe ! 😀

  • Ingredients (for 2 persons)
    • Tofu (250g)
    • Sugar ( 3 tablespoons)
    • Onion (1/4)
    • Soy sauce (light, 6 or 7 tablespoons)
    • Vegetable oil (olive oil in my case)
  • Preparation
    • Cut in cubes the tofu
    • Minced the onion
    • In a sauce pan, heat the oil (4 or 5 tblsp)
    • Brown the tofu few minutes (to have a beautiful golden color)
    • Set the tofu aside
    • Make a caramel with the sugar in the sauce pan
    • When the caramel is like a syrup, add the minced onion
    • Stir until the onion begins to “melt”
    • Add the tofu cubes and stir 3 minutes
    • Add the soy sauce and stir well
    • Done ! 😛
  • Serve
    • You can serve with basmati rice (I did with brown rice) and top with spring onion, and EAT ! 😀

 

Rice pudding and orange juice

☼ Hiya my little suns !

I had a furious wish to eat a rice pudding today, and Mum wanted to drink an orange juice, so I did it ! 🙂

For the juice:

  • Ingredients for almost 1 litre:
    • oranges (4 big)
    • tangerines (4)
    • lemon (1)
    • turmeric (in powder 1/2 teaspoon – I think it should be really better if you use the root itself)
  • Preparation
    • Cut the orange in halves
    • Put all the citrus in a juice extractor
    • Stir the turmeric with 3 tablespoons of juice
    • Add the spicy mixture in the juice, and stir

We bought the citrus in Spain, and they are so delicious! I grab some tangerines in the fields of Valencia, and my dears, they are so sweet! I love the power of the sun on the fruits.

For the rice pudding:

  • Ingredients for 2 servings
    • Round rice for dessert (90g)
    • Soy milk (200ml)
    • Almond milk (300ml)
  • Preparation
    • Cook the rice in boiling water for 3 minutes
    • Drain the rice
    • Boil the “milks”
    • Add the rice and let cook for 30 min in a low temperature (Power 2 out of 6 for me )
    • Stir sometimes
    • Enjoy hot or let cool

I didn’t add sugar and vanilla in this one but feel free to do it. The taste was perfect to me and this vegan rice pudding as a subtle taste of almond, and sweet enough for me 😀

Fried veggies !

☼ Hiya my little suns! ♥

I made this plate 4 days ago, and now, I’m sharing it with you.

I had lots of vegetables to eat, so I decided to cook them all together!

I took pictures all during the preparation, but my camera is old, tired, and maybe I need to change the objective, so, all the pictures have a really bad quality (blur, too much light, too dark, too close, etc). It makes me feel like I don’t know how to take photos, but NO, I disagree! x’D

Next time, I’ll try with my smartphone, and with daylight 🙂

So, here is the recipe! 🙂

Don’t forget, I share principally the ingredients and how I cooked, but feel completely free to add or remove ingredients, change the proportions, and cook as you like. Write your own song! 🙂

Ingredients :

  • Carrots (4 or 5)
  • Red pepper (1/2)
  • Green pepper (1/2)
  • Mushrooms (4)
  • Broccolis (2)
  • Zucchini (1/2)
  • Chickpeas (4 hands)
  • Vegetable Oil (Colza/Rape – 1 tablespoon)

Preparation :

  1. Prepare the vegetables:
    • Wash them
    • Carrots, peppers, mushrooms, zucchini: cut them in slices
    • Broccolis: separate the heads, cut in slices the “foot”
  2. Steam/Boil:
    • Carrots and broccolis for 5 minutes
  3. Prepare your rice
  4. Frying the vegetables:
    • Heat a pan/wok
    • Add the oil
    • Add the zucchinis and the mushrooms
    • Let “melt” during 10 minutes
    • Add the peppers and the chickpeas
    • Stir – let cook 5 minutes
    • Add the carrots and broccolis
    • Season to your taste (salt, black pepper, spices)
  5. Serve with the rice and parsley leaves
  6. ENJOY

Oatmeals

This is my first oatmeal, and I was so surprised I wasn’t used to eating porridge, but I just felt in childhood with the “Cerelac ®” my mother gave me.

Oatmeals are a revelation for me, because you can change the taste every day, add all the spices you want, make all the combination you want, follow your inspiration, add any topping, and have a delicious and healthy breakfast, high in fibre, and decreasing blood cholesterol and blood sugar levels.

In another article, I’ll present you the wonderful effects of oat (yes, I’m in live with oat ^^)

For this oatmeal (image featured) I used:

  • Porridge
    • Oat So Simple by Quaker™ (1 sachet – nature)
    • Unsweetened Almond milk (180ml)
    • Maple Syrup (2 Tblsp )
  • Topping
    • Kiwi (slices)
    • Blueberries (frozen)
    • Banana (slices)
    • Persimmon (slices)
    • Mango (cubes)
    • Maple Syrup

☼ Hope you will enjoy it! 🙂
