Best Vegetarian Recipes

I got to hand it to you, it's hard being inventive and original when it comes to daily cooking. Mostly we all fall for the same patterns and menus over and over again.

So, below I'll be sharing the menus that I cook for my loved ones on a regular basis.

They are easy, fast, healthy and best of all YUMMY!

All-in-one salad:

Fresh Spinach Leaves
Raw Goat Cheese or Blue Cheese
Black Olives
Baby Tomatoes
Garlic Paste (blended garlic cloves, lemon, salt, pepper)
Olive Oil

I usually serve it with grilled onions and baked sweet potatoes.

Potato Quiche/Pie: 2-4 people

Wash and peel three large white potatoes
Slice them very thinly
Heat oil in frying pan
When hot - fry all potato slices
When done (cooked but not crispy) take out and put in large bowl
Crack 6 eggs and scramble
Stir them in the bowl with the potatoes

Use the same frying pan that used for the fries (take out all excessive oil used before but leave in a good 3 tbsps)
When pan is hot, throw in the entire mixture.
Spread it out evenly.

When the bottom is brown (check by using fork to lift it up), place a large plate (larger then pan) over it and turn the pan over.

Then put some more oil in the pan to heat.
Slide the pie from dish to pan once again, this time on the uncooked side ofcourse.

Wait till brown again.
Et Voila!

Mega Sandwich:

Bake a soy patty 3-4 minutes on each side
Whole Wheat Bread
Add lettuce, tomato slices, pickles, red onion, avocado slices and cheese of choice
Mayo, Mustard, Ketchup and a dash of Tabasco


Veggie Curry: 4 people

In a large pan heat 3 tbsp of olive oil
Stir in 2 big white onions chopped in big chunks
Any vegetable previously steamed or boiled (personally I use carrots, garbanzo beans, butter beans, potatoes, broccoli or cauliflower, spinach, sweet corn, etc.)
Throw in 4 slices of peeled fresh ginger, 2 garlic cloves & laurel leaves
1 chili pepper (deseeded and finely chopped)
Put 3-4 cups of brown rice, uncooked
Keep stirring, until rice and veggies are oiled and warm
Pour vegetable broth over the rice until it is all covered
Pour in 1 can of peeled and chopped tomatoes
To make the Thai version, just add 2 cups of coconut milk at this point
Salt (sea salt preferably) and pepper
Lime or Lemon Juice to taste (a couple of spoonfuls)

In about 25 minutes the broth will be evaporated and the rice soft. If more time is needed then pour in some more broth and wait again.

Dinner is served!
