Tortilla de patatas

IMG_3813

Hoy os traigo la receta vegana de la clásica tortilla de patatas. Sustituyendo el huevo por harina de garbanzos y agua. He añadido sal negra (kalana namak) que tiene un fuerte sabor a huevos y va perfecto para este tipo de platos. También he añadido vinagre para reducir el sabor a garbanzos.

Ingredientes:

  • 3-4 patatas
  • 1 cebolla pequeña o 1/2 grande
  • 1/2 taza agua caliente
  • 2-3 cucharadas harina de garbanzos
  • 1 ajo
  • 1 cucharadita vinagre
  • Sal negra (Kala Namak) y sal normal
  • aceite
  1. Pelamos y lavamos las patatas. Las cortamos en trozos pequeños.
  2. Pelamos y cortamos la cebolla y añadimos en una sartén las patatas y la cebolla con bastante aceite. Añadimos sal normal y ajo dejamos que se cocina unos 20 minutos hasta que las patatas estén blandas.
  3. Mientras, mezclamos en un bol la harina con el agua caliente (para evitar grumos), añadimos sal negra y el vinagre.
  4. Cuando las patatas y la cebolla estén, las añadimos al bol junto a la mezcla de harina y mezclamos todo muy bien.
  5. Añadimos más aceite a la paella y añadimos la mezcla. Esperamos unos 3-5 minutos y con la ayuda de un plato le damos la vuelta a la tortilla para que se cocine otros 3-5 minutos.
  6. Añade un poco de Kala Namak por encima.

Mini vegan halloween pies

IMG_8998

It’s Halloween time so I want to share this vegan Jack-o-lantern pies recipe that I made last year. I use melted chocolate for the filling but you can use whatever you want, such as pumpkin puree or some jam.

Ingredients:

  • 200 g flour
  • 4 tbsp oil
  • 50-70 ml ice cold water
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • pinch salt
  • chocolate for the filling
  1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees C.
  2. In a bowl, add flour, salt, sugar and oil and whisk to combine.
  3. Add ice cold water 1 Tbsp at a time and use a wooden spoon to gently mix. Add only as much water as needed to help it come together and form a dough.
  4. Use your hands to gently knead/form the dough in the bowl and gather any loose scraps. Then transfer directly to a well-floured surface.
  5. Roll out your dough into a circle and then cut out as many circles as the dough will allow with a pumpkin cutter or just a circle cutter (and then make the pumpkin shape). Transfer half the pumpkins to a parchment-lined baking sheet, and carve out desired faces on the other half.
  6. Add melted chocolate in the center and brush with water to seal. Place each top onto its pie and press down into filling (use a fork).
  7. Bake for about 10-15 minutes.
