Welcome back to another What I Eat In A Day post! I absolutely love doing these and I really love that a lot of you guys seem to enjoy them too. I feel like I always get to try fun new dishes thanks to my WIEIAD post and it’s always fun to do that!
As always, everything mentioned is vegan/plant based. Also I generally love sharing the recipes with you guys but none of the recipes I made this time were my own so I can’t do that. Instead, I’ll just share the original recipes with you! Please do try them out since I genuinely really enjoyed them a lot.
If you would like to see my other WIEIAD posts please click here. Now, let’s get into today’s WIEIAD post!
I have been having mung tea that my mum has been making for breakfast. I generally don’t enjoy eating a lot for breakfast and used to skip it completely but I feel like that’s not too healthy either so I’ve started drink tea or a smoothie or vegan milk for breakfast instead. I occasionally eat something too but it’s rare when I do that. Breakfast is just not my meal lol.
For lunch, I had something I was super excited to try! As you guys may know I really love Thai food but I haven’t been able to make too much of it from scratch. I have made red Thai curry before but never the green one so a few weeks ago I had bought some green Thai curry paste hoping to use it at some point. And then I may have forgotten about it a little bit…
But a couple days ago, I was going through the vegan posts on WordPress and saw a recipe someone had posted for Aubergine Peanut Butter Curry and it sounded really good. I love eggplants and always have some at home and luckily I had all the other ingredients too since it’s a pretty simple recipe.
I made the curry pretty much exactly like the original recipe I had seen except a few small things. I used green curry paste instead of red curry paste, I used almond butter instead of peanut butter since I have some almond butter I need to finish before it expires and I used homemade molasses instead of sugar. I was kind of scared about how it would turn out which I feel like is normal when you cook something for the first time.
It started out a little bit of a disaster because I over salted the eggplants a little but I made it work and just decided not to add salt to any of the other vegetables and this pretty much balanced everything out perfectly. Everything else was great and it turned out perfectly seasoned. Like honestly, it was so good I was genuinely shocked! I will definitely be making it again. Please do go see the original recipe by clicking here and leave a nice comment for the blogger because this recipe was awesome!!
If you do try this recipe yourself (I would HIGHLY recommend you do or do what I occasionally do and get someone to make it for you when you’re too lazy to cook yourself) don’t skip the green beans. They give such a nice crunch and freshness to the curry.
For dinner, I still had some rice left and wanted to make something simple since the curry was kind of heavy. I ended up making some spinach miso soup (Korean style not Japanese). I used this recipe in case you’re interested but modified it slightly since I didn’t have all the ingredients. I added some zucchini and white onions instead of mushrooms since I don’t eat mushrooms.
It turned out really good and so delicious! My sister and dad liked it too but I added a bunch of garlic to it and my mum was laughing because I smelt like garlic after 😂 We ate the soup with some plain rice but you can add some sesame oil, soy sauce and seaweed flakes to the rice for extra flavour.
I used to eat these snacks before in Kenya too and I was so happy to find them again! They are soooo delicious and have very simple and clean ingredients which I love. They’re also not fried so they’re pretty low in fat and calories. I don’t generally count my calories but if that’s something you are into I would recommend these. I usually have some whenever I feel like snacking- usually after dinner or occasionally for breakfast if I’m being honest lol!
I really hope you enjoyed the foods I shared today! Have you ever tried any of the dishes I mentioned? Did any of them stand out to you in particular? Do you have any good vegan recipes I can try?
