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.
But there’s three things in my life, that I enjoy with every fibre of my body and soul. Travelling, eating, photographing. And that’s exactly what 2016 will be dedicated to.
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.
- 1 medium zucchini
- 1 package smoked tofu
- some cherry tomatoes
- 1 tbsp Tahini
- some soy sauce
- 1-2 garlic cloves
- salt, pepper, cumin
- Dice the smoked tofu and the garlic cloves
- Use a vegetable sharpener or a grater to chop the zucchini into noodles
- Mix the tahini, soy sauce and some water and stir it until the tahini is completely solved
- Heat oil in a pan and shortly fry the tomatoes and add the tahini-soy sauce mixture. Heat it up and put it to the side afterwards
- Fry the garlic, smoked tofu and add the zoodles at last.
- Pour thee sauce on top, serve on a plate and enjoy
Make 2016 your best year! Enjoy, create, give love and be your best self!
