I’ve started following a few Dutch vegan food blogs lately. I don’t know why I haven’t ventured into this world earlier because reading a food blog that actually uses ingredients you can buy is a heaven-sent. There are so many vegan products in the USA that are really hard or downright impossible to buy over here, and it’s so frustrating to run into them in a recipe you were really excited to recreate. So, local food blogs it is. Needless to say I’ve stumbled upon a wealth of amazing recipes and I’ve started slowly going through the ones I like. There’s one blogger in particular who has a very similar taste and cooking style to mine: livingthegreenlife.nl. When I had to cook for a couple of friends a few days back, that’s where I headed to look for a recipe. I found this one and decided to recreate her “delicious spicy sweet potato salad”. And oh, was it delicious. I modified the recipe just ever so slightly and would like to share it with you today as my Mexican bowl with green rice, sweet potato & smoked beans.
