One easy Vegan Recipe

Hi Everyone,

How are you all doing?

I initially wanted to dedicate one post to three vegan recipes but it was honestly way too long. So I hope you don’t mind because you’ll be getting recipes for a week.

I have been cooking more and more. I love grilled tofu, fake chicken, vegan cheese etc. We are a match in heaven. So I spent one week in March cooking every single night and I would like to share my three favorite recipes with you.


Vegan Couscous

You will need:

  • Chickpeas (2 cans)
  • Carrots (2)
  • Courgette (1)
  • Couscous (150g)
  • Fake chicken (optional, can be replaced by tofu)
  • Harissa
  • Tumeric
  • Cumin
  • Tabasco
  • Salt&Pepper

So I cut all my vegetables first. Whilst I cooked them in water, I took my chickpeas (already cooked) and put them for 2 mins in the microwave.

Once my vegetables were a bit softer, I added all my spices, except the Harissa and my chickpeas.

I brought down the heat, covered it up and moved on to my fake meat and couscous. I threw the meat in a pan with a spoonful of agave syrup and cooked it for about 5 mins.

I think the couscous was the hardest to cook. My mom is a pro. She makes bomb couscous and I had to call her up to ask her for advice.

Once the couscous was ready, I set it aside, went back to my vegetables and added two spoonfuls of Harissa. I covered up the pan again, set the table and voila!


I think the actual couscous could have turned out better (it was a bit sticky) but the sauce was delicious and the vegetables cooked perfectly.

I don’t think there are proper rules when it comes to cooking that’s why I struggle to give you the exact time or temperatures sometimes. I just know when it’s ready by testing, poking, stirring, etc.


What do you guys think?

Lots of Kisses,
Alicia

  1. The secret to couscous is the amount of water and oil added to it. If you add to much water, the couscous will for sure come out sticky. What I do is to for every cup of couscous I add a cup plus a some tablespoons of water. The couscous should be a little less than 5 to 10 mm below the water.

  2. Sounds good! I prefer posts that don’t diversify too much. One dish at a time is good for me. Makes it easier to like a post than when one one item is likable and another not as much. Good post!
