Nama foods is one of the best veggie restaurants ever! The meals are so beautiful and tasty, and it is really inspiring to see how they create such good raw and vegan plates.

WOKIT is located in South Bank, which is really worth a visit. Borough Market is filled with organic produce, and it is really nice to take a walk alongside the river. WOKIT serves delicious woks, with many types of noodles, different ingredients and a host of flavours.

LabOrganic is a great place to get green cold pressed juices. The juices are always fresh and made within a short time before they are consumed.

 Maroush Bakehouse (131 Earls Court Road, London SW5 9RQ)

We found this amazing place on trip advisor and decided to give it a go due to the high reviews, and we were not disappointed! Lebanese food is one of our favourites and this place really knew what they were doing. We recommend the moussaka, hommos, tabbouleh, and falafels.SAM_4853 SAM_4856SAM_4852Officially very hungry and wish we were on a plane to London. Byebye

Falafelsnacks

SONY DSCFalafel er en skikkelig lur middagsrett som opprinnelig kommer fra Midt-Østen. Det tar i underkant av ti minutter å lage, og ettersom de er laget av kikterter og spinat er de proppet med proteiner, og med de forskjellige krydderene er de fulle av smak. De kan spises som de med en deilig salat til. Andre forslag er å rulle dem inn i en tacolefse og spises som en wrap. Perfekt enkel og sunn mandags-middag, som blir like ypperlig lunsj dagen derpå.Falafel (ca 12 mellomstore - 2 porsjoner)

  • 2 bokser kikerter (ca 500 g)
  • 2 ss bokhvetemel (eller lignende)
  • 1 egg eller 1 ss no-egg
  • 1 håndfull spinat
  • 1 teskje gurkemeie
  • 1 teskje paprikakrydder
  • 1 teskje spisskummen
  • Smak til med salt og pepper (gjerne himalayasalt)
  • Kokosolje til steking

Hell av vannet på kikertene dersom du bruker de på boks, og skyll dem godt i en sil. Ha alle ingrediensene i en food prosessor eller bland med stavmikser. Stek i kokosolje på middels varme så de blir sprø og deilige utenpå, men også varme inni. Server de gjerne med hjemmelaget guacamole, en enkel salat og granateple for en ekstra knasende sprø smak. Håper det smaker!Hvordan skjære granateplet?Det kan være en liten utfordring i seg selv å skjære opp et granateple uten at det skal ende med et rødt kjøkken. Det lureste er å først skjære av topplokket forsiktig, slik at det blir seende ut slik som bildet under. Deretter skjærer du langs de hvite "veggene" på langs med granateplet. Til slutt kan man brette ut hver enkelt lille båt uten noe søl!SAMSUNG CSCSAMSUNG CSCEnkel delikat salat
