Sweet Potato Curry

1 sweet potato
2 cups cooked chickpeas
1/2 cup frozen peas
1 can coconut milk
1 can diced tomatoes
1 tsp turmeric
1/2 tsp cumin
Salt and pepper to taste
1/4 tsp red pepper
1 onion
3-4 garlic gloves

Dice onion, mince garlic and sauté both in a bit of water
In the meantime cut potato into small cubes and add to pot
Add the rest of the ingredients, mix well and bring to boil
Cover and reduce to simmer. Cook for about 25 min or until potatoes are done

Bean Burgers and Fries

About 3 cups of cooked black beans
1/2 cup oats
2 carrots
2 tbs ketchup
1-2 tbs mustard
Salt and pepper to taste and any other spices you want to add

1 kilo potatoes

Preheat oven to 400 F

Mash about half of the beans in a bowl. Grate carrots into the bowl and add the rest of the burger ingredients, mix well.
Form burger patties and put on lined baking sheet
Cut potatoes into wedges and add to the baking sheet, making sure to keep just a bit of space between them, so they can get crispy.
Bake for 40 min. You might have to flip the burgers half way through, depending on your oven.

Fried Rice

About 3 cups of cooked brown rice
Vegetables of your choice – I am using 2 bell peppers, 1 broccoli, 1 can of corn
1 small block of tofu
3-4 garlic gloves
A bit of red pepper
Salt and pepper to tast

Mince garlic and sauté in a bit of water. Cut all other vegetables and add to garlic
Sauté everything for about 10 min, then add rice and cook a bit longer. Add spices
Lastly, crumble up tofu and mix everything well. Cook for a few more minutes, for tofu to brown just slightly.

Cauliflower/ Sweet potato Sabzi

1 cauliflower
1 sweet potato
2 cups cooked chickpeas
3-4 tbs coconut milk (or water)
1 – 1 1/2 tsp turmeric
1 tsp masala
1 onion
3-4 garlic gloves

Dice onion, mince garlic and sauté both in a bit of water
Cut sweet potato into small cubes and add to pot
Cut cauliflower into small florets and add to pot
Add the rest of the ingredients, mix well and cook until vegetables are done ( about 25 min)

Spicy Peanut pasta

1 onion
3-4 garlic gloves
1 bag pasta (I am using chickpea but this is really good with brown rice noodles as well)
1 pound or more brussels sprouts
2 heaping tbs natural peanut butter (or more if you love peanut butter as much as I do)
1 tbs or more sriracha
2 tbs soy sauce (I am using gluten free)
Hot water (how much depends on how thick your peanut butter is)
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp ginger powder
Peanuts for topping (optional)

Boil water for pasta
Dice onion, mince garlic and sauté in a bit of water
Clean brussels sprouts and cut into halves, add to pan
Brown brussels sprouts for about 10 min
In the meantime make a sauce out of the peanut butter, soy sauce, hot water, sriracha, garlic powder and ginger powder
Boil pasta
Once pasta is done, add to pan. Add sauce and mix well
Top with peanuts (optional)

Awesome recipes! Not too complicated, and so healthy and delicious looking! I am for sure going to copy you on the black bean burgers, and probably the sweet potato curry. Thanks for sharing, and the fact that ingredients are priced so low shows that finances are not a limitation to eating very well 🙂

Thank you for all your knowledge Claudia!
I made your bread and it was excellent!❤
Can't wait to try all the other recipes

La Bella Vida says:

oh my!! all this recipes look so delicious!! Specially the ones with coconut milk!

Robin Petersson says:

Coconut milk is not a whole food and contains a lot of unhealthy saturated fats. But it's easy to put a fistful of cashews in a blender with water to get a rich and creamy whole milk. You don't need many nuts to get it very creamy.

Fresh chickpeas are the best. I make mine in my ninja foodie pressure cooker…They do say cod rice is best for stir fry. All these look so yummy. Our cauliflower goes up to six bucks some times. I buy frozen. May have to try these. Specially the Cauliflower with chickpeas… Rice noodles are yummy. That looked really good. And I don't care for Brussels. May have to try it again though…Taste buds change. 😊

What kind of pot is the blue one you use? Are you happy with it? Does the food stick to it? I'm looking for a healthier pot now that I am cooking with no oil.
