Simple vegan "egg" spread

February 4, 2018

 

So I didn't think I was going to post recipes here, but since I've searched so long for some nice lupine recipes - without any real success - I decided to just try making up something and I love what came out! So I'll share.

 

Quick background: To me, lupines are the new black in vegan/healthy nutrition. These beans are nutritional superheroes, easy to grow, cheap and tasty. 

 

Lupin beans...

 

  • have all essential amino acids*

  • contain about 35% protein (over 3 times the protein of lentils), 19% fibre (that's almost double the fibre of whole grain wheat) and only 10% fat (mainly unsaturated)

  • are a great alternative for people with soy intolerance/allergies

  • are incredible beautiful to grow :) 

 

 

 

So: Recipe!

This spread reminded me of a simple egg spread (as far as I can remember, it's been a few years...)

 

200g  Boiled lupins (aka soak the dried beans over night and boil them until soft. You can peel them after, but I used them with the peel, too time consuming to peel...)

120ml  Water

2 table spoons  Tahina

1/2 teaspoon Kala namak (special rock salt with sulfur)

Pepper to taste

 

Put all the ingredients into a blender or food processor and blend until smooth. Try and add to your pleasure <3

 

 

And to be fair, I never measure anything when I cook, so the numbers above are my best guess ;) Best is to give it a try and feel! Could also be nice to add some chilli, lemon and/or garlic. Or olive oil if you want a richer texture. I'm sure you'll figure it out.

 

 

Hope you give it a try - it's really delish, SO healthy and so simple to make. 

Enjoy the power plant <3

 

 

Love, Cosima

 

 

 

* Amino acids are the units that make up proteins. And essential means we can't 'produce' them in our bodies, so we need to get them through our diet).
