Vegan liver pâté (Leberwurst)

Back home this was one of my favorite things: warm toast with liver pâté (Leberwurst).

Looks like over pâté, tastes like over pâté..But ceci n'est pas Leberwurst ;)

But usually this kind of German sausage isn't really healthy because they throw so much fatty meat and other stuff (basically everything except liver) into it and you never really know what's inside. Furthermore it's pretty hard to find here in china, that’s why I stopped eating it at all. But the last few days the "Leberwurst"-Monster was haunting me and I thought about another solution, which I saw a few times online before. Inspired by that idea I created this #vegan and #meatfree liver pâté. It looks and almost tastes like the real one except the undefined fatty pork parts.

Ingredients for 1 glass:

  • 30g cashews (soaked for about 4 hours in 50ml water)
  • pepper, salt, parsley and marjoram
  • Half an onion and a lil bit of apple
  • 100g smoked tofu
    •     Tip: For the ppl here in china, That's the tofu I use. You can find it in every chinese supermarket for about 5 kuai

Instructions:

  1. Blend everything in a food processor until you get a creamy texture
  2. Fill into a glass, done :)

1 portion of 10g Contains 23 calories, 0,8g carbs, 1,5g protein and 1,5g fat. Still not super duper clean but hey, If you don't eat the entire jar it's easy to include in your macros

  • 150g Whole-grain Rye Flour (or any other whole-grain flour of your choice)
  • 150 ml Almond or soy milk
  • 150ml Water
    • Tip: If you use sparkling water, the pancakes turn out even more fluffy
  • 2 Eggs
    • Tip: You can leave out the eggs to make it vegan but then you need a really good pan and it’s more difficult to fry them.
  • Some olive oil
  • Pepper Salt
  • 10g baking powder

For the filling:

  • About 100g spinach
  • 1-2 avocados
  • 2 carrots
  • 50g Edamame
  • Some green onions

For the carrot tofu cream:

  • 1 Carrot
  • 50g silk tofu
  • ½ clove garlic
  • Pepper and Salt
  • Paprika powder
  • Optional: Some fresh ginger

Instructions:

1. Put all the ingredients for the pancakes into a high-power food processor. If it turns out too thick, add some more water.

2. Sautée the edamame and spinach with some olive oil in a pan and set aside

3. Prepare the other ingredients for your filling

4. Blend the tofu cream ingredients until creamy. There should not be any pieces left.

5. Heat the pan again and add some olive oil. Add your pancake dough and fry until slightly golden, then flip around

You can pour the pancake batter directly from the blender into the pan

Tip: If you see some bubbles on the surface, your pancake is ready to turn around

Low carb and paleo-friendly noodles

If you are a pasta-lover (like me), it is really hard to hold on to a low carb or paleo diet because regular noodles made from wheat-flour are just not on the menu. But how am i supposed to eat a fruity tomato sauce, this yummy broccoli pesto or any other of this lovely, healthy pasta sauces out there?!
And nope, not eating them at all is NOT an option here!

The answer is easier than expected: Make your own veggie noodles.

Making noodles from scratch? Holy moly, I don't have time for that and I guess you have neither :) But this recipe doesn't start with flour, it's simply pure and non processed veggies.

And the best part about it? You can use almost every vegetable (or even fruit) you like and vary in flavors. But for me the easiest and simplest way, due to it's shape, is to use carrots and zucchini. I use this kind of spiralizer to cut them into fine stripes but any other spiralizer, peeler or even knife will do the same job. The use usa of a spiralizer just makes it easier and faster than cutting it by hand. You can find a detailed description here on inspiralized.

Bought this one on amazon a few years ago

After spiralizing, you just need to cook or fry them for a bit according to the following options:

  1. If you made a fresh sauce, you can just directly add the noodles to your sauce and boil them for a few minutes
  2. If you want to use an already prepared pesto or left over sauce, the best way to head everything up is usung a pan.
    1. Heat up the pan
    2. Add your veggies and fry for 3-4 minutes. But take care, for example zucchinis don't need as long as carrots.
    3. Add the sauce and fry for one more minute
  3. Microwave
    1. Put your noodles into a bowl with about 150ml water. The water provides a steaming effect.
    2. Cook on high temperature for about 2,5 minutes.
    3. Add your sauce and cook for 1 more minute

Easy peasy and fast way to cook a healthy meal :)

Super easy vegan microwave cake – a basic recipe

This is one of my favorite recipes for meal preparation because you can prepare it in the evening, store it in the fridge and then just take it with you to work or school the next morning.  Et voilá, you can have a fresh cake as desert or snack. Just make sure, you use a microwave safe container and don't make your colleagues too jealous by making the office smell like cake ;)

By the way..You will find a mousse au chocolate like, fluffy texture the next day so if you want, you can even eat it raw because it does not contain eggs.
