Random Thursday. Favorite easy recipes.

Hallo meine Lieben,

time for another Random Thursday! I hope you are having a wonderful day and it does not rain as much where you live as it does in Ohio. 



This is the topic.




1. Here is what I do when I have no idea what to cook.

I look into the fridge and see what vegetables I have. I choose 2 or 3 of them and roast them in a pan with lots of spices. Then I add some potatoes, rice or pasta and maybe some vegan Asian chili sauce. Done. 
I usually add a salad, preferably spinach. 
And this is how I make the dressing:
Mix horseradish mustard, soy sauce, oil, lots of spices and some water. Done. 
Sounds pretty easy and tastes delicious.

2. Kohlrabi Schnitzel.

I tried this for the first time a while ago. You can find the recipe here.



Don't burn them as much as I did. 

3. Potato-peanut butter-vegetable-curry.

I love curries. I really do. Especially when they include chick peas. One of my favorite vegetables. Well, I love all vegetables except of onions.
You can find my recipe here.

4. Red lentil soup with coconut milk and chili.

Here is my recipe. It is so easy to make and does not take very long so I always make a huge pot full of soup so that I can eat it for a couple of days. I tend to go crazy on spices but you don't have to if you don't like the soup to be too spicy. 



5. Roasted asparagus.

I am German and I think all Germans love asparagus a lot. White or green, I love them all. 
So what you have to do is to peel the asparagus and roast it in a pan for ca. 10 minutes together with some brown sugar, chili, salt and pepper. And that's it. So good. 

What are your favorite easy recipes?

Have a fabulous Thursday!

  1. Hi there,

    well, I love all things with Pasta, so, it's Pasta with vegetables as a stir fry or a salad or with a sauce (with tomatoes or cream cheese).

    I need to try those Kohlrabi Schnitzel, they look delicious. I do eat meat, but I try to reduce my amount so this would be a great alternative.

    And it's raining here in Germany, as well. It is more like spring or fall not like summer :-D

    Have a great day.

    1. Oh, I love pasta too! Can't get enough of it! Pasta with veggies or just tomato sauce, perfect!
      Hope you will like the Kohlrabi Schnitzel. I did not know what to expect when I first made them but they are really good and I guess a good alternative to meat!
      Seems like it is raining everywhere! :) Hope it will get better soon!
      Have a sweet day and thanks for stopping by!

  2. Throwing veggies all together with rice and pasta is my go-to dish too. It's a great way to clean out the fridge. :-)

  4. My go to dish is pasta with olive oil, lemon, and crushed red chili flakes and I toss it with spinach and pancetta. It takes just as good without the pancetta too :)

  5. Yum! These are all sound amazing and I'm definitely book marking this post. I've been making big roasted veggie with quinoa "yum bowls" (yum sauce is this like vegan sauce that is just to DIE for...). So delicious.

  7. Nice recipes!

    I am on soft food at the moment because of my braces so it´s mostly soup for me.

    I do love fried tofu and couscous with peanut sate sauce, or quinoa with falafel and avocado as a salad!

    1. Hmm, your recommendations sound so delicious! I need to make some couscous tomorrow! And falafel are always good!
      I am a huge soup lover! I could eat soup every single day! I can imagine that it is easier for you to eat right now!

  9. Yum yum yum...that curry soup looks delicious. I skipped out on this week because I was feeling too lazy to write anything out! But we eat lots and lots of pasta and vegan burritos.

    1. How do you make burritos? Would you believe me when I say that I never had one?
