Recipes for Lazy and Busy People – Schnell, Einfach, Vegan

Von Schülerin, zu Nebenjobberin, zu Reisende, zu Studentin. Seit über 4 Jahren schreibe ich diesen Blog und egal in welchem Umfeld, Land oder Lebenssituation ich mich befinde, schnelle einfache und trotzdem gesunde und leckere Gerichte sind für mich immer unheimlich wichtig.

Ich liebe leckeres, gesundes Essen, habe aber keine Lust dafür viel Zeit in der Küche zu verbringen. Kochen und Backen macht mir unheimlich viel Spaß, aber nur wenn es nicht zu lange und aufwändig ist, sonst verliere ich die Lust.

Wenn das bei dir ähnlich ist, egal ob du busy im Berufsleben bist, noch Schüler oder Student oder du einfach nicht gerne viel Zeit in der Küche verbringst, dich aber trotzdem gesund ernähren willst, dann findest du auf meinem Blog schon viele tolle Rezepte die dir gefallen könnten. Und heute kommen noch welche dazu:

Herzhafte Schnelle und Einfache Rezepte zum Mittag oder Abend, die wenig Zeit, Aufwand, Zutaten und Kochkünste brauchen, dafür aber trotzdem unglaublich lecker, gesund und (fast alle) vegan sind!

Denn schließlich hat keiner Lust sich immer von langweiligen Salaten, Gemüsepfannen und ähnlichem zu ernähren.


Health Fact

Am besten schneidet man Knoblauch immer zuerst und lässt ihn ca. 10 Minuten ruhen und lässt ihn nur kurz am Ende mit kochen/garen, dann enthält er die meisten Vitamine und gesunden Stoffe.

  2. nebenbei euer gewähltes Gemüse kleinschneiden, in die Pfanne geben (außer den frischen Spinat, der kommt erst zum Schluss dazu oder wird roh gegessen) und leicht düsten bis es fast fertig ist (ich mag mein Gemüse gern noch knackig)
  3. die halbe Packung Kräuter Gnocchi dazugeben und alles zusammen ca. 2-3 Minuten anbraten (jetzt sollte auch alles an Wasser verdampft sein), durch die öligen Gnocchi sollte nichts ankleben

Bunter Salat mit Linsen

Auch wenn ich eigentlich keine öden Salat-Rezepte posten wollte, ist hier eine kurze Anleitung zu meiner gesunden Lunch Bowl.

Dazu wasche und zerkleinere ich gemischten Salat, Feldsalat oder frischen Babyspinat und mariniere ihn mit Apfelessig, Senf, etwas Olivenöl und Zitronensaft. Dann kommt frische Gurke, Paprika oder Tomate dazu.

Nebenbei koche ich rote Linsen (achtet dabei unbedingt das ihr sie immer wieder umrührt und nicht zerkocht – das passiert total schnell und dann habt ihr eine Pampe, wie ich auf dem Bild :D) und wenn diese fertig sind würzt ihr mit Salz, Pfeffer, Paprikapulver, Kurkuma und gebt zwei TL veganen Tomatenaufstrich dazu. Der macht alles noch 100 Mal leckerer.

Easy & Quick Quesedillas

Letzte Woche hat meine Mama zum ersten Mal Quesedillas selbst gemacht. Auf Instagram hatte ich dann gefragt, ob Interesse am Rezept bestünde auch wenn es nicht vegan ist und ich habe viel positive Rückmeldung bekommen.

Nicht vegan, da mit Käse, aber kann auch einfach durch veganen Käse ersetzt werden oder man lässt den Käse weg.

  • Mais-Tortillas (Dinkel ist noch gesünder – habe ich letztens bei Aldi Nord gefunden)
  • Käse oder veganer Käse (wir haben orangen Cheddar genommen)
  • gekochte Süßkartoffel zermatscht (mit der Gabel einstechen und bei höchster Stufe in die Mikrowelle, immer wieder checken bis es durch ist)
  • schwarze Bohnen aus der Dose, gewaschen
  • Mais aus der Dose, gewaschen

So haben wir unsere gefüllt. Ganz toll würde aber auch Zucchini und Pilze mit Bohnen und Käse schmecken!

IMG_9589.JPG

Gemacht werden die Quesedillas einfach indem ihr einen Tortilla mit Süßkartoffel beschmiert, die trockene Seite in eine große Pfanne und vorsichtig anbraten damit es leicht kross wird. Nebenbei Bohnen, Mais und zum Schluss Käse darauf verteilen und einen 2. Tortilla obendrauf „kleben“. Dann mit einem großen Teller als Hilfe umdrehen und noch mal auf der anderen Seite braten.

Dazu dann Guacamole und/oder Creme Fraiche mit frischen Kräutern, Salz und Pfeffer servieren.

What I Eat on a Lazy Rainy Sunday in Australia

It’s not actually Sunday that I am doing this ‚What I Eat in a Day‘. It’s Monday to be honest. But it’s like a Sunday for me and my friend, roommate and colleague because it is our free day. And what do you do on a rainy, gray and lazy day on the Sunshine Coast, Australia? You eat some yummy vegan food. So that’s what we did – follow along!

11.20 am Brunch

I started my day with a run and walk along the river. At that time the sun was still shining and I could catch some good weather. I worked out for around an hour, had a shower and then it started to drizzle outside.

So we had to eat our yummy brunch inside instead of outside in the sun, but it was still so delicious! My favourite breakfast combi at the moment: toasted rye sourdough bread with avocado, fried soy sauce tofu strips, tomato and fresh spinach. And we also had some really sweet and juicy cantaloupe melon.

CSBX7316

Originally our plan was it to go to a really cute town in the mountains. Unfortunately, the public transport here is so so bad and we would have had to drive in the bus for 3 hours there and back and could only spend 1,5 hours there. So that doesn’t make any sense and we’ll have to do that differently.

That’s why we decided to go to the next bigger city and to the shopping centre to get a few things we need (face cleanser and moisturizer, toothpaste and Tatjana got a bikini) and strolled a bit through the shops.

4.30 pm Moo-Free Burgers

Afterwards, we were starving and tried out a 100% plant-based restaurant someone recommended us. It’s called Moo-Free Burgers and I’ve already seen them in Sydney once.

They don’t just do fake beef and chicken burgers, but also healthy burgers, salads, loaded fries, nuggets, toasties, bowls, nice cream, juices & smoothies and healthy cakes and raw treats. So we already decided that we need to come back to check out a few other things because there were soo many options on the menu and the prices are good.

So I had a falafel burger with beetroot, avocado, pickle, cabbage salad and tomato relish and we shared the „nuggets“ and fries with aioli. The burger was super delicious, the only thing is that it could have been warmer. The „nuggets“ were really crispy and super delicious and they actually looked and tasted a bit like chicken, definitely worth a try. And the chips were amazing! You wouldn’t expect it from their look, but they are so much better than normal fries I know. Extra crunchy but still soft inside and seasoned with herbs.

6.30 pm Vegan Halo Top

And then Coles had 1/2 price on Halo Top ice cream. So we obviously needed to take some home. We got toasted coconut and peanut butter cup, both the dairy-free versions with coconut milk and tried them later. They are super creamy and so delicious!

The toasted coconut is so yummy and has some toasted coconut shreds in the ice cream and the peanut butter cup is not too peanut butter-y itself but has peanut butter swirls inbetween. They are both so so good and even better together, not too sweet and the best – they are vegan and don’t have many calories.

Tatjana also said that they taste much better than the dairy versions because she already tried and didn’t like those, which means – vegan wins!

So I hope you enjoyed this random, lazy „Sunday“ food diary and let me know in the comments what kind of blog posts you are interested to see more on my blog!

 

Food Porn in SYDNEY – mostly VEGAN Food Guide

Sydney is the best place to eat vegan that I have ever been to. So many health food cafés, restaurants and so many completely vegan places.

I already wrote a general Travel Guide for Sydney with all my tips on where to go, what to do and also some important things to know. So this post is supposed to be the addition to that, talking about all the food hotspots, cafés and restaurants that I tested and loved and recommend to you!

I hope you are ready for some serious mostly vegan + mostly healthy food porn!

ss

But before I start with the restaurants & cafés, you definitely need to check if the SYDNEY VEGAN MARKET is on! They host it once a month and it’s a paradise for vegans and foodies (and vegan foodies obviously). Unfortunately, I never made it there, but I would do everything to go there next time.

Speedos Café, Bondi Beach

Goals for every food blogger and photographer. This place is not just heaven for the mouth but also for the eyes. Vegan banana pancake stack, different avocado toast options, amazing juices & smoothies, and a berry-licious breakfast pannacotta. Sounds like a dream? It is. I’ve been there twice and even though it’s pretty loud and squishy, the food is just 100% worth it.

Bodhi, Asian Vegan Restaurant

Located near Hyde Park and St. Mary’s Cathedral this restaurant overlooks into Cook + Phillip Park and has a wonderfully quiet location. The menu is completely vegan and offers so many different meals and little dishes that it is hard to choose. It is a bit more pricy but soo delicious and great to order different things and share with friends and family.

I remember the Japanese taco, cauliflower chicken, spring rolls, mushroom dumplings and „nachos“ as super delicious.

Café in Westfield Shopping Centre Burwood

For my last breakfast with my parents, we found this little surprise in the Westfield Shopping Centre in Burwood. We didn’t expect to find something that delicious and pretty in a shopping centre, but we got surprised.

Avocado and poached egg on black sourdough with beet hummus, fruity honey crunchy muesli on yogurt and I also had a great Acai bowl. Super photogenic and great taste – we did not expect that at all! Only the juices where disappointing because they weren’t fresh pressed and super watery…

Shift Eatery, Surry Hills

I saw them on Instagram and immediately knew that I had to try one of their toasties. 100% vegan, fresh sourdough, tofu ham, creamy „cheese“, garlic aioli and tomato – so freaking delicious and they had so many more options. Vegan bacon, sauerkraut on toast, breakfast toasties and other deliciousnesses. Perfect snack or lunch when walking around in the city all day.

Preach Café, Bondi Beach

At daytime an epic breakfast and lunch spot. In the evening an 100% vegan restaurant. Unfortunately, I only tried their dinner and not one of their healthy buddha bowls, vegan pancakes or acai bowls, but I can really recommend their vegan mac’n cheese, burger and nacho bowl.

Cali Press, Bondi Beach

Famous for acai bowls, sandwiches and toasts, juices and smoothies. They offer many different options and everything I had was really good. They also make all their juices themselves and you can order juice cleanses with them.

IMG_8076

Lentils as Anything, Newtown

I discovered this amazing chain in Melbourne. They have a daily changing menu with three different all vegan meals and you pay as much as you want/can in the end. I like the vibe & food in Melbourne better, but it was still a super delicious vegan health lunch.

Toast Café, Surry Hills

Australians just love their breakfast. That’s why they have so many cafés that do amazing all day breakfast and so we had no struggles finding a new place to eat every day (and for ever meal).

And even if their Avo toast contains fetta or poached egg, it’s never a problem to ask for vegan options!

Max and Co, Manly

I love good Mexican food, but I think it can be boring and similar everywhere you go. It’s always Burrito, Nachos, Tacos, Enchiladas and Quesadillas. But if a restaurant really knows how to do it nicely, it’s so delicious. And this place in Manly really did it great! But still not as good as the Mexican restaurant I went to in Byron Bay.

IMG_8104

The Sandwich Shop, Haymarket

Between all the big skyscrapers and offices you find amazing bistros to eat lunch or have a snack. Because that’s what the Sydneyaner and business people do in their break as well. At lunchtime, you see so many of them meeting for a quick lunch or coffee with friends, business partners or just to eat and be outside.

At The Sandwich Shop, you get super healthy sandwichs, wraps or salads and mine, with avocado and hummus was really good!

Umu Vegetarian, Bondi Beach

Breakfast heaven, snack bar, lunch spot and daily dinner menu – all vegetarian. Me and my friend shared a dream of a breakfast. Vegan avocado toast, sweet potato zucchini breakfast stack with beetroot hummus and vegan cheese and a berry ricotta pancake. Everything was so so good!

Jet Café & Restaurant, Townhall

I’ve been there 4 times, I know, crazy. Never to eat lunch because it’s pretty expensive, but to have cake. Because their carrot cake is heavenly, so moist, creamy and with pecans on top and it’s only 5$ (3€).

Lord of the Fries

Sydney, Melbourne, Perth, Surfers Paradise. This chain is slowly taking over Australia (and hopefully the world soon) with their completely vegan menu of burgers, hot dogs, nuggets and fries. Not healthy and definitely fast food, but you can find all those „cheese burger“, „bacon and egg breakfast burger“, „fish burger“ and more made vegan – how amazing is that! No need to mention that it tastes amazing.

IMG_1641

Two Daughters, Surry Hills

Super cute hippie café that offers amazing vegan options. I had a tofu scramble avocado toast and their juices were really good too.

 


Oh and by the way… it’s not just Sydney that is amazing when it comes to healthy food places, vegan meals and beautiful cafés and restaurants. Australia in general is so so good when it comes to amazing food!

Melbourne is probably Nr. 2 on the vegan heaven! Here are my tips. And I also made a ‚Eating out vegan – What I Eat‚ blog post.

Byron Bay – Acai bowls, fresh coconuts and raw vegan treats everywhere you look around. I tested many places and still haven’t tried them all, but here you find my top tips for you.

Perth also has many great places and I love seeing vegan options everywhere. Here are my tested places.


And there are more blog posts and food guides in planning. One for the whole East Coast and general (vegan) food tips for Australia. A Sunshine Coast food guide because they just know how to make the best breakfast. And I am also freaking excited to eat out in Bali soon!

Which Cities can you recommend for great (healthy & vegan) food? Have you tried a few of these places in Sydney? What are your favourite meals when eating out?
