10 minutes mushroom ragout with oven-baked yeast buns

Welcome Autumn! Who isn’t thinking of mushrooms?

Some of you can understand my joy and enthusiasm for this really special season. I was born in Novemer when the leaves falls down and the light is magical. I love forest walks and cooking warm stews as well as light candles when we have dinner. It is a magical time.

My hubby felt totally in love with mushrooms. And I? I love to cook simple meals during the week to have a good meal on hand at my lunch time as well as cooking simple meals at the weekend to spend more time with my hubby, friends, family and my cats. Sometimes I spend more time in my kitchen but at the moment I feel a bit empty and I enjoy cooking some easier stuff. This ragout is made within 10 min. You only need to let the dough prove for the oven-baked yeast buns. If you don’t want to spend time with these buns you can easily eat this ragout with pasta or rice.

I highly recommend to use the bay leaves because they add a heavenly taste. Bay leaves are full of flavor and they are often used in the kitchen.


Enjoy vegetarian

This mushroom recipe isn’t vegan and I don’t recommend any vegan changing because I didn’t cooked a vegan version of this meal. I use butter in this recipe. I really love butter. I often use coconut oil instead. It is much more healthy and also delicious in many meals. But I need the butter flavor in these buns and in the ragout as well. My hubby and I eat a mix of vegan and vegetarian and we are very happy with this kind of life. We both don’t want to “hurt” animals. I am sure a vegan diet is the best to protect animals but I am not on the point I can change my diet completely so I doesn’t. Changing need to be happen free from stress. It need to be happen from the inside. Maybe the time will come or not. We will see.

Special humans can change the world!

In someone’s eyes people who fight for their considered opinion are too extremely. But I think the world need people like this to open eyes and hearts. People who fight for their visions and ideas get hurt often but they don’t stop fighting. And the win fights! I am not that kind of person. I don’t have the energy to speak loud and use my voice. My idea is to share my way to life on this blog and Instagram. But there are some others out there who have a louder voice than me. One person is James.

I’m following this inspiring soul on Instagram for a while. You find him here: Instagram: @jamesaspey & He was diagnosed with leukaemia when he was 17 and he changed his life and he “speaks loud”. Loud about animal suffer. To be honest. Anybody needs to do this. That‘s the way people start to think about their life and their diet. Like me. I read an article from PETA and became a vegetarian in 2009. One of the best decisions I ever made.

But no matter if you a non-vegetarian, vegetarian or vegan. You can only make your own change. Whatever you want! You need to feel good with your own decisions.

Autumnal! Fresh warm Naan (Yeast Bread) out of the pan: Naan

Fast Naan for everybody

When I ate Naan the first time I can’t believe the bread is made within minutes. You only have to let the dough rise and then bake the Naan simply in a pan for minutes. It’s one of the delicious things I ever ate. Sure, in this version it is not the healthiest food I eat but I don’t want to change anything. I have some meals I know they aren’t the healthiest in the world but I don’t want to miss them in my life. I try to bake this Naan in the oven first but I don’t get the right result I get in a pan after frying it in butter. Yes, it’s not vegan, it’s vegetarian.

Vegetarian or Vegan

If you want to make a vegan version it’s really simple as well. You only need to replace the honey in syrup, the butter in coconut oil and the yoghurt in soy yoghurt. I prefer the vegetarian version because I really love love butter so so much. I often replace butter but in some meals or for this bread I really need the unique butter flavor. You can enjoy this Naan with some Dips, serve it with a chickpea stew or eat it as a garnish to a salad. We enjoyed it to Harissa Eggs. OMG! Soooo good. I promise you! Best combination ever!

I’m already working on my next Blog Post about dietary change because I made my own experience in the last years I like to share with you. I hear about dietary change very often. Lot of people try to change their diet in a suffer way. They want to much in a short time. But dietary change is hard work, learning and listen to your body really carefully. You can learn more in my next Blog Post. Can’t wait!

This bread remember me on this Post because it isn’t completely healthy but I’m sure it isn’t that bad for me because 90% of my diet is really really healthy. Life is enjoyment and this bread is a part of mine.
