Mex-Style Buddha Bowl With Tahini & Lime Dressing

I’ve always wondered why Buddha bowls were called that. To my knowledge they have nothing to do with Buddha… But this has become the coined term for vegan bowls with a nice balance of grains, greens and proteins so I’m going to roll with it until a better term get popularised. Please send me a memo when that happens. Anyways, I have a delicious recipe for you today! It’s a Buddha bowl featuring lots of Mexican flavours (my favourite, as you know) and full of healthy, yummy goodness. It’s a super quick recipe as all you pretty much have to do is dice up the ingredients and you’re good to go. This makes it perfect as a lunch dish that you can prepare in the morning and take with you to school or work!

As I was taking photos for this recipe I realised one of the ingredients, the avocado, was still lying on my kitchen counter untouched. No idea how that happened but let’s just pretend there are neatly chopped little green cubes in the photos as well, ok? Haha! Let’s get on with the recipe then.

Spiced Pumpkin Stew | Vegan Recipe

Nothing says autumn like pumpkins, am I right? For that reason I’m bringing you another pumpkin recipe to day. You can never have enough pumpkin recipes! Today’s dish is a lovely hot stew featuring the warm, slightly sweet flavours of Northern African cuisine. I pulled out my ras el hanout spice mix again after a long time and I have to say, it works wonderfully with the creamy pumpkin. This recipe is a slightly modified version of a recipe clipping I found in my binder, originally from Allerhande. It’s super simple, just the way I like it, healthy, and delicious!

Pumpkin Sage Pie | Vegan Recipe

When I was in Edinburgh this summer, we sat down in a little restaurant called Mums Great Comfort Food to have dinner one night. The place was packed, usually a good sign, and I ended up ordering a pumpkin sage pie off the menu. My oh my, was it good! Deliciously soft pumpkin covered in a creamy tomato sauce, with a subtle hint of sage, and crispy puff pastry on top… After I came home I couldn’t stop thinking about it, so I decided to cook my own. Of course I have no idea how they make the pumpkin sage pie at Mums, and I don’t remember exactly how it tasted either, but what I do know is my own version is pretty amazing, if I dare say so myself. It’s fragrant, it’s full-bodied, it’s healthy, vegan, and just plain delicious. Try it yourself!

Oh, of course it wouldn’t be a Loepsie dish if it wasn’t also impossible to photograph 🙂
