If you’re a sushi lover and opted for a plant-based/vegan lifestyle, you might struggle a bit for ‘giving up’ on it. However, to most of the foods, you can create plant-based variations which, although are not quite the same, can be delicious and fairly similar. I absolutely love the Maki (sushi rolls) and as the amount of fish they have is small, the plant-based version is surprisingly good. Today’s recipe is all about how to make sushi: a plant-based version, in particular Maki.
I absolutely love summer veggies. I’ve been growing loads of spinach in my garden as well as aubergine (bigger and bigger every day) and squash. And what a good combo of ingredients that is, right? That’s what today’s recipe is all about: a spinach Esparregado with Butternut squash & Aubergine deliciousness. A combo that I love, that is easy to prepare and it sort of reminds me of my childhood due to the Esparregado.
Today’s recipe is all about aubergines! The Mediterranean diet is well known for being very varied, rich and delicious. The range of vegetables and fruits that you can find is wide and often easy to find something on the season. Some of them you can actually find locally in the United Kingdom. Others are normally imported as they don’t grow efficiently enough to respond to the demand.
