    Sharing Vegetarian and Vegan Recipes

    Since I read the thread Shocking News About Meat, the idea of a thread were we can share vegetarian and vegan recipes that we tried and liked came to my mind...

    It seems I was not the only one thinking about vegan or vegetarian recipes while reading that thread...

    So... everyone eats vegan and vegetarian (if they are not vegans) food too, so why not share here our favourite recipes, that all of us can eat, no matter if we are vegetarians or vegans or not?

    Which are your favourite recipes? The ones you already tried and liked... Please share!

    I love three-bean soup, Spring rolls and Quorn sausages.

    I don't really follow recipes unless it's a cake when winging it really can be a disaster LOL

    But generally I just make things without recipes ... I seem to be good at creating soups lol.

    I was vegan for 10-ish years and now vegetarian for 5 years (went back to some local eggs and cheese)

    I'll have to post some pics.

    This reminded me of my favourite traditional Romanian soup, a type of sour soup called borş in Romanian, and it seems it's called borsch or borscht in English. My favourite one is bean borscht, and I have a recipe from my grandma, written somewhere... In the one made as I learned from my grandma we boil that sour liquid called borscht (women used to prepare it traditionally at home in large quantities, it's very healthy, drank as it is or added to soups or other dishes, it's especially very good for maintaining a healthy intestinal flora; however, now few women still do it home, most of them buy it from shops, and it's not as good as the homemade one; my great-grandma made really good borscht) separately, with thyme and red beet (to get that wonderful red colour of the red beet), and in the end we add it to the soup. The beans must stay in water over night, and we boil them in three different waters, throwing away the water and adding new hot water each time. Only the third time, when beans are almost done boiling, we add other ingredients to the soup, other vegetables (carrots etc.). In the end we add the boiled borscht, which is still hot, and in the very end freshly cut green leaves, like parsley. The recipes vary a lot, from one woman to another, of course. But these are the main lines I remember following from my grandma's recipe.

    It's really my favourite type of soup, the bean borscht I learned how to make from my grandma, yummy...

    I didn't know they say the origin of borscht is in Ukraine... However, Romania and Ukraine are neighbours, and many parts of Ukraine were part of Romania before... for example Northern Bukowina.

    When I've been to Chişinău (that is the capital city of Republic of Moldova, also Daco-Romanian territory, but whatever) I discovered red beet borscht, and it was so delicious!!! They call it there red borscht... and it looks somehow like in this picture:

    It's basically the same recipe as the one of the bean borscht I described above, but without beans, and the main ingredient is obviously red beet... (red beets are very healthy, especially good for rejuvenating one's blood, I really like them)

    Traditionally, at least as far as I know from my family, borscht is basically a vegan or vegetarian dish... (On internet there are recipes with meat too, but I never ate any borscht with meat into it my whole life, or at least I don't remember such a thing!)

    And yes, it's delicious with sour cream too... In Romanian we call that sour cream smântână (quite similar to smetana, as written in the Wikipedia description). I like to eat my red borscht with smântână/smetana too, and sometimes I use a lot of it, adding it into my bowl of red borscht, when eating it...

    Yummy...

    Then share your own soup recipes with us!

    Usually people have their own recipes... created or improved by them, or learned from family...

    Generally I don't follow recipes either... only when learning how to make a new dish, but after a while I'm adding my own things to it, so...

    Even with cakes... I like to add or try new things... and it's not always the best decision, but it's always something to learn from it, haha!

    My grandma is a cake master... she did and still does the best cakes... however, being older now, she doesn't cook that often... but when I was a child I was a very spoiled one... She did lots of delicious cakes... and also home made chocolate... Of course vegetarian, not vegan, most of them, but really delicious... I always call her when I want to make a cake I know from her, and ask her for advice... She said she learned from cooking books most of the recipes, and some of them also from my great-grandma, who learned from my German great-grandfather. But sweet things, especially pancakes, and cakes, are her specialty...
