Life is a picnic

I recently bought a cookbook called Deliciously Ella. It’s vegan but I think finally I’ve discovered a veggie style of eating that is not just about substituting meat with cheese or tofu.

The big idea is to prepare fairly simple little dishes and then compile them into a meal. One of the dishes is rice or quinoa, one is some kind of bean or lentil dish. Then there are roasted veggies and salads. And my favourites: dips and sauces that are just amazing.

Sounds like a lot of work but it’s not. I often cook this stuff on Sunday and we eat it for several days. I just love this style of eating. Filling, delicious and lots of different flavors.
