Tabbouleh


Being a vegan means you've gotta introduce all kinds of meals into your diet if you want to stick to being a vegan. It can be really very discouraging to be one if you are not on the constant seek of something new to try. I am a true foodie and love to eat everyday something different but to be honest, veganism is not at all that popular yet. Yes, there are many of us who chose this lifestyle but the majority of people do not understand why one wouldn't eat dairy products since they are healthy. So eating out can be a little challenging, mainly in Hungary. What's more challenging is to come home to my family in which the men don't consider a meal without a massive amount of meat. Okay, I can always skip the meat part but I need something nutritious to eat, too! And no, I can't eat simple mixed salad all the time as a  a main meal. So I was more than happy when my Mom came home with boxes of bulgur and couscous! Yay, something different! 
Having bulgur at home means tabbouleh, of course! Honestly, I haven't eaten it before and it is so good! It is fresh, loaded with vegetables and complements basically anything perfectly. Let it be fish, meat or grilled vegetables. It is seriously amazing and will be a guest on our plates often. Oh and have I mentioned how easy it is to make? 



Tabbouleh

2 cups bulgur
1 cup chopped parsley
1 cup chopped fresh mint
2 smaller purple onions
5-6 tomatoes
3 cucumbers
1-2 lemons' juice
1,5 dl olive oil
1 chili
salt, pepper, cilantro seeds 

Bring water to a boil and pour about 3 or 4 times as much water on the bulgur. Let it soak up for 15-20 minutes. 

Chop up the parsley, mint, onions, tomatoes and cucumbers into very small pieces.

Mix the lemon juice with the olive oil and spices. Mix it well. 

Strain the now soft bulgur and place it in a big salad bowl. Add the onions, parsley, mint, tomatoes and cucumbers to it. Stir it together. Add the sauce and mix it well. If desired, add more salt.

  2. It's not easy but it's all about what you decide to do. If you want it badly, you will like it! My body LOVES it! It's not like a diet it is a lifestyle so the tough part is when you are with people whom are not vegan. Imagine a get together where all you can eat is pretty much nothing but you can get used to it! I encourage you to go vegan, it is amazing, although I do cheat sometimes :)

  5. The post says that Being a vegan indicates that you've gotta bring in all kinds of meals into your diet if you would like to stick to being a vegan. It can be actually very disappointing to be one if you are not on the steady seeking of something fresh to attempt.

Sajtos Pogácsa - Hungarian Cheese Puffs

We have different traditions in Hungary in the holiday season. Santa, I mean St Nicholas, comes on 6th December here and on Christmas Eve we are waiting for the little Jesus to bring our presents! Of course, as an almost 22-year-old I don't expect any gifts on Nicholas day...That is why I was so surprised when I got absolutely the coolest thing ever! A plastic bread-board! I had a huge wooden one that was very heavy, very hard to clean and needed such a big space. Look at this beauty :)

It has everything I might need. Measurements, unit converter, it can be rolled up, I don't need to use flour for kneading...I know exactly how big I need to knead the dough, it is perfect!  So, of course I just had to try it out! :)
I've been waiting for these cheese puffs' recipe for years now. It is a traditional, old school Hungarian pastry. It is made with yeast and it tastes amazing! These mini puffs are crunchy on the outside and super duper soft inside! This recipe is the ultimate c…

Hungarian Kakaós Csiga (Chocolate Rolls)

Frankly, I missed baking so much! Even though I needed one baking-free month to lose all the weight I gained due to the excessive baking mania I got over this summer I just cannot stop it! So I decided that I don't have to give up this love of mine but I do have to figure out something that will not leave me end up gaining weight again. What to do, what to do...Bake only in the weekends! And probably I should get a grip and not stuff my face until I can't move...Which didn't really happen today. I ate like 6 of these lovely chocolate rolls...I guess, no dinner for Csilla tonight :P These rolls are from a traditional Hungarian pastry recipe. I called my Grandma to ask for the recipe and as it always happens with Grandma recipes she did not know the measurements...I don't know if it's only with my grandmas but they always work with their eyes so they usually have no idea how much grams I need from this or that... So I turned to an ancient Hungarian cookbook and that i…

Pad Thai

I feel so bad about not posting anything for weeks. I have my excuses. But who likes hearing about excuses? Not me! So probably no one else, either.  Although I'd like to share that I have finished writing my thesis! I wrote about the crises' of South Asia. It was such a drag...I had a serious writer's block going on and I procrastinated so much that in the end I had 2 weeks left to write the whole thing. I basically did nothing besides writing, eating and sleeping. Exciting life, huh? Now that it's over, I've got even more scholar stuffs to do than before! But I'll be graduating in 2 months, if all goes well...So that's worth all the hard work, right? :)
But enough about me and let's talk about these noodles! I do not think there's one person who wouldn't like pad thai! Even those who swear not to eat any weird looking asian food, like my Grandma, will like this meal after having one bite! It is an authentic thai recipe, due to my Mom went to a Th…
