Add the other ingredients: lemon juice, cinnamon and sugar. You can also add a ground clove or two and vanilla sugar. Bake for another 10 minutes or until the apples are completely soft and most of the liquid has evaporated.

Place apples on 4 slices of toast (leave 2 tablespoons in the pan), cover with empty slices of toast and place the bread in the toaster oven.

While the breads are baking, make the sauce. Add 1 tablespoon of jam to the pan with two tablespoons of the remaining apples and fry until the jam spreads and binds to the apples.

Sprinkle the baked apple bread with powdered sugar and serve with the sauce.

Now the sweetening can begin. Be careful not to burn your tongue on the apples or sauce!

Cauliflowers

Ingridients

For 3 people:

1 medium cauliflower

2 tablespoons of homemade vegeta

0.5 teaspoon of salt

1 tablespoon of garlic powder

1 teaspoon sweet paprika powder

1 teaspoon ground thyme (or 2 sprigs fresh)

1 teaspoon ground cumin

2 tablespoons of vegetable oil (or soy sauce)

Preparation

Turn on the oven at 220 degrees Celsius.

Carefully cut out the hard part of the stem from the cauliflower – cut a little deeper each time and make sure that the cauliflower remains in one piece. If a flower falls off, there’s nothing wrong, we’ll just have a few smaller cauliflowers. Save the leaves for a smoothie or soup. Place the cauliflower so that the stems are at the bottom and the flowers are at the top. Cut 1 cm to 2 cm thick pieces and carefully place them on a baking sheet covered with parchment paper.

Sprinkle each piece with a few pinches of vegeta, garlic, paprika, thyme and cumin and a pinch of salt, as some of it is already in the vegeta. Better less than too much! Drizzle with oil or soy sauce and massage each piece with your fingers so that there is some spice and oil everywhere.

Place the cauliflower in the preheated oven and bake for about 30 minutes. A little earlier, we check with a fork if the thickest pieces are nicely softened and have acquired some color.

Let’s serve. As a side dish, we can prepare roasted asparagus and garlic puree.

Swiss chard wraps with potatoes

a few large chard leaves

Swiss chard

potatoes

carrots

yellow or red pepper

tomatoes

dandelion or arugula

parsley or chives (optional)

Preparation

Boil water and put cut potatoes and carrots into it. Let it cook slowly.

Boil the Swiss chard quickly (so much so that it softens).

Meanwhile, cut the tomatoes and peppers into small pieces.

When the potatoes have softened, mash them together with the carrots and boiled Swiss chard into a not-too-smooth puree.

When the puree has cooled a little, mix in the tomatoes and peppers. Add chopped chives or parsley if desired.

Let’s prepare chard leaves, on which we place piles of mashed potatoes, which we shape with a spoon – they should be big enough that you can still grab the edge of the leaf and wrap it from all sides. A dandelion or arugula leaf can also be placed on each pile. You take the wrap in your hands and serve it.

Wheat meat – seitan

Ingridients

For 6 people:

2 kg wheat flour (type 500)

1 liter of water

Preparation

Mix flour and water and knead into a loaf.

Fill a larger container with water. We put a loaf in it, which we will slowly rinse. Squeeze the loaf in water gently: gently press it against the bottom of the bowl (as if kneading it). When the water becomes cloudy, drain it and pour fresh water into the container. Repeat the process of squeezing the loaf and changing the water until the water is no longer cloudy. At the beginning of the wringing, we must be careful that the loaf does not fall apart. We try to keep it in its original form. During wringing, the loaf will become more and more compact and gradually its size will decrease. When the loaf is completely washed, we are left with pure gluten – seitan.

In a large bowl on the stove, boil water, salt it, add bay leaf and spices as desired (one teaspoon of smoked pepper, one teaspoon of curry, etc.). Place the seitan in boiling water (you can leave it in the shape of a loaf or cut it into smaller pieces). If the seitan is cut into smaller pieces before cooking, cook it in water for about 25 minutes. However, if we leave the seitan in the form of a loaf, the cooking time will be longer, between 45-60 minutes. Once the seitan is cooked, take it out of the water and prepare as desired. The possibilities for preparation are enormous. It can be fried, breaded and fried, used in sauces, etc. It is important to marinate the seitan well (with soy sauce and spices as desired) before preparation.
