The Local _ Cooking _ Vegetarian recipes

Posted by: Alfredo 4.Mar.2008, 10:35 AM

To all you veggies in the house - have you got any good sites, tips on what to eat, recipes, etc, for vegetarian food.

I'm thinking of broadening my diet.

(Fish, eggs, milk, cheese all fine)

Shoot!

buy carrot. peel. eat.

Fish is not a vegetable.
Other than that, you can use www.recept.nu and use the "vegetarisk" search option to find recipes in Swedish (and therefore ingredients accessible in Sweden).
I also like cooking with Kurma (www.kurma.net).
Once you get into the routine it's easy to improvise.

Take vegi recipe, add beef or chicken or lamb = lovely!

Posted by: Kaylo 4.Mar.2008, 11:36 AM

There's also this one, haven't used many recipes from this site, but there's lots to choose from:

For spicy stuff one of my fav:
http://onehotstove.blogspot.com/2005/10/e-is-for-egg-rassa-and-eggplant-kaap.html

but it does have stuff which is non-veg too.
Take a look.

FishTank I should not look at your links at work just before lunch...

As a general rule looking at Indian and other Asian food is easy to find vegetarian options or adapt other recipes to vegetarian styles, as vegetarianism is quite common there. Italian pastas etc are also more accomodating for vegetarians than, for example, traditional Swedish or French styles.

Vegan Potato Latkes ( Israeli style)
3 lbs. baking potatoes, peeled
1 yellow onion, finely chopped
2 Eggs or Egg Replacer equivalent of 2 eggs
1 tsp. salt
¼ tsp. pepper
4 Tbsp. unbleached flour
Canola oil for frying

• Grate the potatoes and squeeze out the moisture. In a large mixing bowl, combine the potatoes with all the remaining ingredients, except the oil.
• Heat 1/4 cup oil in a large skillet. Place 3 Tbsp. of the mixture into the skillet for each latke. Use a spatula to flatten the mixture to form the latke. Fry over medium heat about 4 minutes per side, or until golden brown. Drain on paper towels and serve hot with apple sauce.

I use http://www.recipezaar.com/

its worth signing up for a free account so that when you browse and see something you like, you can click to save it in your online cookbook. There are a zillion vegetarian options if you type it in as a search word, and you can always search by the ingredients you have on hand too.

I'm sorry that I assumed your non-ability to google and suggested a recipe. Save me from 007, she will dig up all cook books and might sue me for eating this dish for so long without paying copyright money to the author.

I may make Potato Latkes today evening. sounds easy to make and tasty.

unbleached flour: No idea what it is called in Sweden. So may end up using the vetemjöl. Is that ok or will taste strange???????

No James! I can't tell you how to boil an egg from my memory. I found this recipe and it is the same way my gradma/ma/aunt/mil made it but with proper proportions and all. I just cook it automatically without any recipe or measuring.

You won't be disappointed FishMan! Just go to a healthstore for the right flour or if you are not picky then use whatever you have.

One of my current faves, made up out of my very own head:

Cook pasta for 2 (approx 200g dry starting weight, penne or spirals work well)
While cooking pasta, dry fry or grill halloumi in 0.5cm thick pieces (about half the block from the supermarket - maybe 100g?), then remove from heat to cool.
In the hot pan, briefly fry a couple of handfuls of broccoli in bite size pieces with one crushed garlic clove and some finely chopped chili (amount depending on taste) and a little olive oil.
Approx 100g cherry tomatoes, halved, and break/cut the halloumi into bite size pieces, drain the pasta, add the hot broccoli, mix everything together and serve.

http://www.vegweb.com/ This is one of my favourite vegetarian recipe sites. I know you said that fish and dairy are ok but these recipes are all vegan. What I like about this site is that people from all around the globe upload their recipes and then other users are able to rate how well the recipe turned out for them. Some of the recipes are very authentic so I think it's a great resource.

Another really good vegetarian site is this http://www.happycow.net/ Also, if you are traveling anywhere and you want to check out where the vegetarian restaurants are, this site is fantastic.

If you discover any "must try" recipes, do share them with us! Good luck!

Posted by: Moony 4.Mar.2008, 01:16 PM

Right, this is clearly one of those days when I will understand nothing but Tulip found a recipe years ago, which 007 has found on a Peta Website and the wording is identical in both. Yes?

Posted by: Tulip 4.Mar.2008, 01:23 PM

laugh.gif It was not about the recipe. I told her that I didn't invent it but found it at internet a while ago and I can't recall the author. She found the recipe but couldn't find the author because it is a very old recipe and no body knows who cooked it first. Do you know who boiled first egg? laugh.gif

Since you are thinking of trying fish. Try one from the frozen food section called Pangasius fillet. They are frozen fillets loose frozen, and I really love them. I thaw them, and just dip in seasoned flour and fry in a mix of butter and oil.

Serve with boiled brocolli and cauliflower mixed, drizzled in lemon juice and olive oil with some crushed garlic in it.

Willy's have them on special this week at about 38sek per kg.

Posted by: Alfredo 4.Mar.2008, 01:49 PM

Good one. I've seen the pangasius about, and was wondering what it would be like - is it like cod - could one make make pangasius and chips with a clear conscience?

My mum/mother-in-law/grandmother all make very similar potato fritters wtih normal white wheat flour. Should be fine.

It's WONDERFUL battered and deep-fried. We use it all the time.

Clean and place in the juicer.

1. celery (separate strands)
2. broccoli ( 1 head- carve carefully)
3. tomato ( 1-3)
4. anise (1 head- carve carefully)
5. cucumber ( 1)
6. radish ( 1/2 dozen)
7. 1/4 portion of blue berries
8. 1/4 portion of strawberries
9. accent of powdered ginger and tumeric

This is a powerful calcium, anti-inflammatory and
anti-oxidant cocktail.

Do not know if this site has been posted on TL before but it is one of my favs, and includes a healthy and Vegetarian section...

I've tried epicurious too, but find it rather US-centric i.e. ingredients required and quantities etc. Had trouble with availability as it often gives ingredients in US brands which is not necessarily easy for someone not from there to follow...
Having said that, they do have some nice recipes.

Posted by: evakaram 4.Mar.2008, 03:09 PM

Looking forward to the beer batter recipe Mooney.

I make a seasoned mix of flour, breadcrumbs, salt pepper, chile,and krydmix seasoning. I have a big jar ready made up. It almost forms a batter with the wet pangasius.

You realise that Pangasius is simply Cat fish. They farm it in Vietnam.

BEER BATTER FOR FISH & ONION RINGS

1 1/2 c. flour
1/2 tsp. salt
3 tsp. baking powder
1 c. cold beer
3 eggs

Slightly beat the eggs in medium mixing bowl. Add remaining ingredients. Blend well with electric mixer. Use immediately to batter fish or onion rings for frying.

This recipe is from cooks.com
http://www.cooks.com/rec/doc/0,1617,156187-238206,00.html
:wink:


The trick with this recipe is to beat it until it's frothy. Then the batter fries beautifully flyffy and crisp

I recommend Bishops Tipple for the batter, and to wash it all down with as well ...

Something dark and English, then?

Yes, we can buy several of the English Ales in our local supermarket (though in a 3.5% version) and they all work fine.

One of my recent discoveries has been just how quick and easy stir fry veggie noodles are. First arm yourself with a pack of dehydrated egg noodles (äggnuddlar) from ICA or Willys and a frozen bag of Wok grönsaker from ICA. Also stock up on some basic Asian bottled sauces - soy sauce, oyster sauce (Willys sell a big bottle fairly cheap) and sesame oil.

You can literally have this in a bowl ready to eat 20 mins after getting up from the sofa and heading to the kitchen. Use an add-and-weigh digital scale to make the stir fry sauce just adding each ingredient then press zero then add the next. Super quick.

Ingredients

2 portions dried egg noodles
300g frozen wokgrönsaker, straight from the freezer bag.
Oil for frying
--- sauce ingredients below - prepare and mix in a mug or small jug ----
100g water
20g light soy sauce (kinesisk soyasås)
10g dark soy (japansk soyasås)
20g oyster sauce
10g shaoxing Chinese cooking wine (optional - only if you have it)
1 level teaspoon sesame oil
1/3 vegetable stock cube
1 level tablespoon sugar
2 level teaspoon cornflour (add at last minute)

Directions:
- Soak the egg noodles in boiling water for 5 mins then drain the water and set noodles aside.
- make the stir fry sauce while noodles are soaking. All the remaining ingredients after the noodles and vegetables in the list above are for the sauce, just add them to a mug and add the cornflour last just before you need it and stir to dissolve it as best you can. It will probably clump a little, it's ok.
- heat a little oil in a wok or 22cm frying pan and sizzle the noodles a little to warm them through and get a little colour (not much). After frying for 3 mins add a little bit of stir fry sauce and fry a little more, then set aside the noodles into a bowl.
- fry the wokgrönsaker (vegetables) in a little oil just to melt them a little, then add the remaining stir fry sauce and boil it for a couple of mins to allow the cornflour to thicken the sauce, then pour the vegetables & sauce over the top of the noodles in the bowl.
- if you want to "get fancy" you can in addition to above chop and fry some ginger and garlic before frying the vegetables, or add some chunky cut onions. Fry these onions on their own on high heat and add on top of the noodles before adding the veggies & sauce.

If you cook it right, vegetarian tastes just like chicken.

Does anyone here have a recipe that has a lot of broccoli in it?
