Vega Dinner
Vegetarian curry with root from the Good Food Book

Vega dinner

You have good (cook) books, you better book, and you have the cookbook. In the latter category covers the Good Food Book; good in all senses of the word. This cookbook contains not only 50 first-rate special recipes from various chefs and foodies (Jonnie Boer, Robert Kranenborg, Yvette van Boven, Ron Blaauw to Herman den Blijker), but also contributes further to a better world. Not because there is a book sold a measly euros will go to a charity or something, but because the entire net proceeds of the sale of the Good Food Book goes to the global action "Zero Hunger! 'World Food Programme (WFP) , part of the United Nations. In short, Good Food Book sold for every 40 children in Malawi nutritious school meal. It might sound like small beer, but that school meal ensures that parents send their children to school instead of letting them work. Look, and that makes for structural improvement.

This recipe, created by chef Dick Middelweerd is enough for four people as evening meal. The Good Food Book costs € 14.95 and is available everywhere (this is the 2nd edition), and include ordering at

Carrot 400 grams
2 centimeters ginger, finely chopped
1 lemongrass stalk, finely chopped
1 red pepper pieces
Lime 1 piece
Lime juice 1-2 tablespoons (or more to taste)
Coconut milk 1 liter
Coriander to taste
Cane sugar 1 tablespoon
Cut the roots (in first peel!) Into cubes of about 2 by 2 centimeters. Fry them gently in a pan in a little oil, about 5 minutes.

Add the ginger, cumin and lemon to the pan. Cut the pepper in half lengthwise and remove the seeds list out. Cut the pepper into small rings and also add to the pan.

Peel the lemon, cut the slices into pieces and also add to the pan.

Then add the cane sugar, a pinch of salt and the lime juice.

Pour the coconut milk last until the roots are below. Preheat be done to the roots and the curry is hot.

Serve with brown rice and some freshly chopped cilantro. Bon appetit!

Tip: If you curry let stand overnight, the next day even better. Really; the flavors of the individual ingredients attract still more in the coconut milk and make the dish even more intense flavor.
Tiramisu for breakfast
One of the reasons I became a food blogger is that you get certain privileges

Healthy tiramisu for breakfast with oatmeal and berries Optimel Greek Style

So I get new products often taste first - sometimes even before the products in the store are available. Because Optimel main sponsor was the We Love Smoothies workshop all the participants of the workshop were the new season flavored yoghurt Greek style, taste berries, too trials for he well and truly hit the shelves. I like this. And since I happen to be fond of healthy breakfasts, I made a super simple tiramisu that you can eat very well as breakfast. Because the tiramisu is I added a few long fingers, for the idea. Which you can of course leave out. This recipe makes two servings.

Optimel Greek Style Variation Forest Fruits 300g
Muesli 6 tablespoons
Blueberries 4 tablespoons
2 tablespoons coconut shavings
1 banana pieces
Two espresso cups
Ladyfingers 4 pieces

Let the ladyfingers briefly soak in a little coffee. I poured the coffee into a bowl, the ladyfingers broke into pieces and put the pieces in the coffee. Start with a layer of yoghurt Greek style in both the bowls or pots where you make it to breakfast. Make sure you are left with half the yogurt. If you do not use Optimel does a different kind of Greek yogurt also fine, but if you are just such a sweet tooth like me it is nice to add still jam or honey.

Then comes a layer of banana. Arrange the banana slices over the two bowls or jars. Divide the granola over the following two bowls. Heen about the pieces go into coffee-soaked long finger. Push a little bit, because now there's another layer of yoghurt Greek style. Garnish the 'tiramisu' with the blueberries, blueberries and possibly an extra long finger. Enjoy!
