as promised photo of vegan indoor picnic

Saturday, January 31, 2015

as mentioned in last blog here is the photos of our indoor vegan picnic.there is an overview first then more close up.











al i can say the bean and sweet potatoe dip was totally delicious even the kids loved it.it was actually the same mixture i used to make the bean balls except the bean balls has added bread crumbs and some differant spices.the basis for the dip and bean balls was.
black beans cooked
two sweet potatoes cooked
garlic cooked
onion cooked
carrot cooked
sweet corn(tinned,rinsed)
ground pepper
corriander
cumin
all purred together with a hand blender(if you don´t like such a thick dip you can mix some water in it to make it thinner.

for the bean balls.same as above but add bread crumbs and cyanne pepper then i formed into balls and baked in the oven.

my vine leaves i stuffed with rice that i seasoned with garlic ,dried peppermint and a squeeze of lemon and some ground pepper.

as i said in my last blog i am trying to keep my kids interested in sticking to their goal of eating vegan for a week.ideas are very welcome.

hope you enjoyed the photos as you can see if was a very simple meal as most picnics are and once in a while it is nice to do as the kids love picnics and the fun associated with them.afterwards we played some games on wii.

for the fun of it here is aymans lego that he built today



have a great rest of the weekend.take care and keep smiling
