I tried three recipes from Pinterest in the past week before I got sick and today I will share what my thoughts on them and of course pictures. First I tried Vegetarian Lettuce Wraps, based on this recipe on the pioneer woman. I changed around some things like adding red kidney beans and replacing chili powder for sweet paprika. They are actually vegan and the combination gives it a bit of a bacon taste. Because the recipe is in English, I don't need to translate so just hop over to try them yourself :)
The 2nd recipe I tried is a Vegan Friendly Vegetable Stew from the site Meatless Mediterranean. I never made a stew before but this one was great! It is a good recipe to clear out the fridge and I am keeping my eyes out for bulk recipes like these lately! I added corn and kidney beans here that I had leftover from the lettuce wraps and also a zucchini, because I had lots of zucchini in the bag :) Just check the site for the recipe, I highly recommend it! :)
Lastly I finally made carrot cake! This was something I wanted to try for a long time but I was a bit anxious about. This one is not vegan btw. It is from the Dutch site Goddelijke Huisvrouw, but I won't translate and share the recipe yet, because it does need some tweaking. I loved the topping and the sweetness of the cake but this recipe was way too spicy for me. So I will try again when I have carrots in my vegetable bag next time :)
Do you use Pinterest as recipe inspiration?
