Autumnal butternut pumpkin soup with spicy honey sprinkle

The Autumn is still present here in Germany and I decided to complete my plan to write a post about my butternut pumpkin soup. It was my first time I tried out this amazing sort of pumpkin which is so pretty and decorative, photogenic and healthy. Have you ever cooked a pumpkin? It was really heart to damage this beautiful pumpkin.

I hold one butternut pumpkin for my pictures because the natural color and the form is perfect as a prop in my food picture.

Do you use dairy products?

Pumpkins are wonderful to use in the kitchen. They have less calories! In that case I add some whipped cream for this soup to make it more creamy. LOL. I only use organic dairy products because I don’t want to support the animal abuse. I try to buy the highest organic label I can get. I don’t eat lots of dairy products. Normally I prefer plant milk or chia seeds as egg replacer. But sometimes I like to use them as well.

What is about you? Are you using dairy products? Or are you full vegan?

I watched a in German movie about harmful additives in food products. I’m really angry who the industry hoax us. We need to check carefully what’s inside the products we buy in our stores. Sometimes harmful additives are not shown really carefully. I bought my first vegetable broth without any additives in an organic store last days and can’t be more happy to found it.

In this case this soup is free from any harmful additives and industrial sugar. Please take care of the pepper in the soup because the sprinkle already contains a lot of crushed red pepper.

Aromatic Tofu Bolognese

Every weekend I plan my week because it is very important for me to eat a healthy dish every lunch time. I hate eating spontaneously. I like to enjoy what I eat at lunch time. My lunch should give me lots of health benefit to get new energy for the other half of the day. I am really lucky because I can eat at home in my lunch time. But if I couldn’t do that I would prepare my lunch at take it with my every single day. Good planning is the base for a healthy diet. You don’t need to cook elaborate. It is only important to cook for 2 days so you have less stress at one day you don’t need to cook. I cook two times a week an during the weekend. I prepare healthy treats or soups and freeze them to have them on hand when I need them. Now it became a routine for me to have a good diet management. You can start in little steps by planning only a healthy breakfast and when you are safe with this you can start to plan lunch and so on. I will add a healthy living category soon with my tips for a healthy living.

I am really happy to share my favorite tofu Bolognese recipe with you!

I tried out different tofu Bolognese recipes and need a lot of time to find the perfect recipe for me and my hubby. Now it’s done. I don’t cook a lot with tofu but in this recipe I love love love it. This recipe is a vegan but we use parmesan for the topping. So it is on your side if you use cheese or not. For the red wine use vegan red wine if you like it vegan.

I use a lot of fresh herbs because fresh herbs because they are so good for my health. Herbs contains a lot of essential oils. That’s the reason why they are so delicious in the kitchen. Herbs also contains a lot of secondary plant products which are detoxifying for your body.

Tofu is a an excellent source of protein and contains all eight essential amino acids. You find also iron and calcium and the minerals manganese, selenium and phosphorous in tofu. Vegetarians like to eat tofu because of its high qualified protein. You find also protein in other animal products like milk or cheese. But when you don’t eat cheese that much or eat vegan tofu is a really good ingredient for your diet.

I use canned tomatoes in this recipe because canned organic (!) tomatoes are also really healthy for sure. Tomatoes are the best source of the carotenoid pigment lycopene. The cooking process with a little oil helps to carry the lycopene into the bloodstream.
