Vegcafe

Hello!
Spring is coming and probably everyone are looking for healthy, light products. Today I had a lunch at a lovely vegetarian/vegan cafe “vegcafe”. Interior there looked very nice and cozy, most of the people looked happy(?), “chilled” and definitely not like snobs (?).

Interior
All dishes are meat/fish-free, made in like Indian style with lots of vegetables, leaves, lens, chickpeas, yogurth, paneer.
We ordered 2 lassi – one with ruccola, cumin, other leaves, homemade yogurth and water. Second, that I drank, with papaya, honey, yogurth and water. Super delicious but in my mums opinion, not like in India.

Then my mum ate vegetable curry with buckwheat, sourcream and sunflower seeds – I tried it and it was just. So. Tasty. I think because of the Indian spices I love!

I ate orange pumpkin and cabbage soup with parmeggiano and crisps/bread baked in oil and bowl of basmatti rice. Soup was OK cause I’m not a fan of cabbage and I needed more liquid in it. Acctually I wanted to try “English country tomato soup with grains but it was “sold out” 😀

I’m not a fan of vegetables like cabbages, carrots, eggplats as the main dish so it was just a little problem but I loved an “assorti” of lassi, juices, fruit shakes and it looked (and it was!) sooo delicious, so recommend this cafe for those who can live without meat for a day and tolerate many different kinds of vegetables, grains, lents and a pintch of spices!
Adress – Totoriu street 3, Vilnius.
P.S.
In the second dorr, there is raw raw cafe that serves vegetarian, vegan, green food – Should I try it? 😀
Bye, have a nice start of spring! 😉

Valentine’s sweets

Hi!
As you all know, Valentine’s day is comming. It’s not very popular in our country, but I like to celebrate it. We want to share with a chocolate cupcakes recipe with you cause we’re soo in cupcakes and muffins! Sadly, I don’t have Valentine this year, just like Ieva, so what to do? Bake cupcakes to each other! 😀
And now for your attention:
     CHOCOLATE MUFFINS/CUPCAKES (12 )
ingridients:
150g dark chocolate
150g butter
150g sugar (but I used about 70g or less brown sugar)
150g wheat flour (550D)
4 eggs
Pinch of salt
1tsp baking powder (I used a bit more)
How to:
Melt chopped butter and chocolate into a boiling water “bath” (I hope you get it cause I don’t know how to say in the other way 😀 ) do not over heat the chocolate!, then add sugar and mix until it melts. Let your chocolate mix keep cool and whisk eggs with salt until it gets light and “fluffy”. Slowly spill egg mix into (chilled/cooled) chocolate mix and keep blending everything together until nice and creamy. From now, do not wait! Mix flour with baking powder and slowly keep adding and mixing it with chocolate mix, be patiend!
Serve your dough into cupcake wrappers and put into heated oven (180-200 degrees C) for about 15-20min.
