Comfort food recipe: Zoodles – Zucchini Noodles – with Tahini & Soy Sauce

Happy New Year everybody!

I hope you all had a great start into the new year and enjoyed the night either relaxing at home or partying like there’s no tomorrow. I personally am not a big fan of New Years Eve, which is why I decided not to spend money that evening but to earn it by working at the NYE Party at my workplace in Hanover. To me, NYE is just a day like any other. Admittedly with more decoration, drunk people and fireworks. I had a great night though, with cheerful colleagues, drunk & friendly guests and champagne at midnight.

The only thing I miss when I’m working and staying at my families place is cooking my own food. This blog gives a good impression about my special perferences when it comes to food. Vegan, kind of fancy and not so well known.  So, if I had the chance to make my own lunch at work it would recently definitely be Zoodles with a soy-tahini sauce smoked tofu and tomatoes! It is the perfect comfort food for a cold winter day which gives you energy for the whole day. I recently bought a kind of vegetable ‘sharpener’ to make beautiful long zoodles. If you don’t have such fancy gear you can simply use a grater.

Talking about January it always comes to New Year’s resolutions. I usually don’t have any. I am more of a person who enthusiastically makes plans and resolutions throughout the whole year. Those resolutions are more of a short-term nature: Hey! I should start book binding! *feels bored after 3 books*, I want to go to the gym and get super ripped *doesn’t like doing sports indoors*, I will do more portrait photo shoots! *hates people in general*… and so on.

I have two very promising vacations in April and July in sight, I get excited just thinking about it. I have great ideas for new recipes to fill this blog with life and  for my studies I have some great project concepts from which you will hopefully benefit as well sooner or later.
