Green Houmous This is a mouth-watering take on traditional houmous. Flavoursome and healthy, it’s the perfect addictive accompaniment to almost any dish. A vegan staple! 400g fresh chickpeas (or 1 tin of cooked or 150g dried chickpeas) 3tbsp tahini 1 large lemon 2tbsp extra-virgin olive oil 2 small cloves garlic (or 1 large) 3tbsp fresh parsley, chopped 3tbsp fresh dill, chopped 3tbsp chives, chopped Salt 3tbsp water Paprika, olive oil and a few spare chickpeas, to decorate 1. If you’re not using tinned chickpeas you’ll have to cook them first. If fresh from the pod, you only need to simmer them in water for about 5 minutes. If dried, soak them overnight, then simmer for 60–90 minutes. Alternatively, you can let them sprout for a couple of days after soaking, and then blend them in this form to make the houmous – see the chapter Sprouting, page XX, for further information. 2. Blitz the tahini and juice from the lemon for a minute in a food processor or blender. 3. Add the cooked or tinned chickpeas (leaving a few aside), along with the olive oil, garlic and the herbs. Pulse until it becomes a coarse paste, then slowly add the water, keeping an eye on it until you’re satisfied with the consistency. 4. Spoon the houmous into a bowl to serve, decorating with a sprinkle of paprika, the chickpeas you saved and a drizzle of olive oil.

Picked the last of the chillies a few days ago.. had previously picked a huge basketful that got chopped, dried in the dehydrator, then ground in the electric spice grinder to make a jar full of fresh chilli powder. This lot will be dried whole. Have now pulled up the chilli, sweet pepper and cucumber plants to make way for winter salads and greens in the greenhouse. The melons are still in there. Just waiting to see if the five melons left on their vines will ripen in this lovely hot sunny weather. ☺☺☺🌶🌶🌶🌶🌶🌶

Winter squash harvest! The Uchiki Red Kuri did the best. Need to find a better producing butternut squash for next year... one that ripens earlier and sets lots more fruit. The Green Hokkaido didn't produce that well either... May look for another variety of small to medium sized winter squash to grow next year. These squash are now spread along every sunny windowsill for their skins to cure and harden in the sun. We lift and check them throughout the winter to make sure none are beginning rot. Most years they last in storage until March... if we havent already eaten them all before then! They are delcious in autumn and winter soups and stews and in roasted veg tray bakes, as well as roasted and stuffed. When you're harvesting winter squash, remember not to cut through the stalk.... instead cut the stems above the stalk (swipe for pic of this).

I'd never even heard of cucamelons before they popped up in my Instagram feed sometime last year. I was so interested to find out what they tasted like that I knew I had to grow them. They're like citrusy cucumbers and so very moreish. 🥒 ___________________________________________________ #gyo #allotmentlife #allotment #homegrownveggies #nationalallotmentweek #homegrownvegetables #growyourown #veggiepatch #gardengram #growyourownfood #vegangardener #knowwhereyourfoodcomesfrom #growfoodnotlawns #homesteading #mygardentoday #allotmentlove #ediblegarden #gardenersofinstagram #allotmentgirl #vegetablegarden #vegangardening #thevegankitchengarden

My dream of having my garden beds laid out in the back yard are almost here. Using whole foods and making great tasting food high in nutrients is always been what I enjoy 😍 Also, growing plants 🌱 has a less negative impact on the environment 🌏 When you’re legit serious about your garden beds and fruit trees back there 🤩...... My hubby asked his friend to bring his tractor over to level the dirt so we can start fresh😍😍😍 Bye bye giant tree stump *grind, grind* 💩. Time for a legit wall, more cutting of trees and some serious landscaping and better sprinklers. Downside too much grass to water, good thing there’s a lot of cement in our backyard too😂. #momlife #honeytodolist #marriedlife #gardening #gardenbeds #friends #landscaping #tractor #irrigation #homestead #homesteading #vegan #veganlife #veganlifestyle #vegangardening

Everyday I walk past my peppermint plant and enjoy it's upbeat scent. Today I couldn't resist myself and ate my precious plant. I mixed it with lemon and raspberry. YUMMM! There's nothing like eating food that you grew and loved! Yep, I'm that chic who talks to her plant. My aloe plant better watch out, he's next, lol😁😁 #blackgarden #blackgardener #blackgardeners #blackfarmers #blackfarming #vegangardener #vegangardeners #vegangarden #vegangardening #veganfarmers #veganfarm #veganfarmlife #veganfarmer #gardenersofinstagram #gardener #gardening #gardens #garden #gwinnmichigan #gardenlove #gardenlife #growyourown #farming #healthy #healthyeating #healthylifestyle

I can't get over the colour of this kale, so tasty too. 🌿 I have however, had issues with whitefly. Anyone else had this problem? Any tips would be so greatly appreciated. ___________________________________________________ #gyo #allotmentlife #allotment #homegrownveggies #nationalallotmentweek #homegrownvegetables #growyourown #veggiepatch #gardengram #growyourownfood #vegangardener #knowwhereyourfoodcomesfrom #growfoodnotlawns #homesteading #mygardentoday #allotmentlove #ediblegarden #gardenersofinstagram #allotmentgirl #vegetablegarden #vegangardening #thevegankitchengarden

Vegan Paella with Artichoke Hearts – this colourful feast is as delicious as it is adaptable in that you can include any vegetables you desire. We like to use brightly-coloured peppers and artichoke hearts, but you could try it with various combinations of carrots, broccoli, cauliflower, leeks, asparagus, squash, mushrooms and any type of beans. The bright yellow colour can come from saffron, but we prefer to use turmeric, known as one of the most healing spices on the planet! One of the differences between paella and risotto is that paella is not stirred as the rice cooks, ensuring it doesn’t become too creamy.

We still have a lot to do but I’m SO ecstatic about how it’s coming along!! These windows date around 100 years old and were sourced from an old apple house barn in North Carolina. Even though I loved the natural wear and tear, I decided to paint the frames to preserve the wood long term. The horizontal panels were found out near the edge of our land. They are beautifully weathered from being out in the elements with no shelter for 2 years. This will be the most gorgeous and historic cold frame ever, don’t you think! Who was able to guess the project? 🙊💕 . . Next, I want to apply a very light stain over the wood supporting the windows. Nature can do the rest. 🌧 We then need to add the remaining panels / sides. I can’t wait to show you all the little details we have in mind. 🌿💕 . . Bonus: look at Grey and that side eye 😩💕 . . . . . . . #vintagecoldframe #coldframe #wintervegetables #fallvegetables #historicwindows #vintagewindows #gardening #vegangardening #est2018 #plantbaseddiet #plantbasedlife #growyourownfood #vegan #veganlife #enjoylife #happylife #veganlifestyle #tinyhouse #simplify #tryminimalism #lessismore

Es ist echt immer wieder erstaunlich, wie viel der Garten mit relativ wenig Aufwand abwirft. Selbst in einem so trockenen Jahr wie diesem, wenn ich kaum zum Gießen komme, weil ich nur einmal die Woche in den Garten fahren kann. Ich kann zwar vielleicht noch nicht größtenteils aus dem Garten leben, aber ich befinde mich definitiv immer mehr auf dem Weg hin zur Selbstversorgung. Wobei - eigentlich bin ich da schon angekommen, denn Selbstversorgung ist für mich kein Fixzustand, kein Titel, den man erst ab einem gewissen Prozentsatz tragen darf. Wie seht ihr das? . . . #garten #gärtnern #vegan #vegangärtnern #biovegan #biozyklischvegan #bio #schrebergarten #selbstversorger #selbstversorgung #gemüsegarten #gemüseanbau #ernte #harvest #organic #veganic #gardening #vegangardening #growyourown #vegasmus #vegansofig #vegansofyoutube #vegansofgermany #vegandeutschland

Morning tomato harvest here in Tucson Arizona! First year growing tomatoes in the desert and we’re doing well. Wood chip covering is so important in your gardening process. It’s unconventional and people will tell you it cannot be done, but we are here to tell you that is so untrue! We’ve been using a wood chip covering since day one in our 7 year journey Of gardening fruits and vegetables and it’s been working wonders for us will ALL of our produce and even flowers, trees and shrubs. Covering your soil is protecting it. 🍅🥦🥒🌽🍆🌶 #tomatoes #summergarden #desertgarden #woodchips #mulch #vegans #farmer #growyourownfood #homegrown #backtoeden #lifesagarden #vegangarden #vegangardening #vegangardener
