This was my dinner yesterday, and it is a pretty good option for Meat Free Monday, or any vegetarian day in your life!
I used the Vegetarische slager “gehaktbal” (Meat ball) which in the real-meat version is a very typical Dutch treat. Since I don’t eat meat, I also can’t enjoy this dish, until now! De Vegetarische Slager has their store in The Hague, as mentioned in one of my earlier posts, and has over 200 selling points for their fake-meat dishes throughout the Netherlands & Belgium. In other countries like the USA, you can go for a seitan dish. the texture of seitan is most similar to the products of de Vegetarische Slager, which are made of Lupin. They also sell “Jus poeder” which is stock powder to make a nice juice to go with the meatball. (don’t use too much powder as it becomes too salty!)
Also on the menu: Steamed Broccoli, apple sauce, and a mash of lentils, carrots & onions, I used to make carrot-lentil burgers before. I like to find another purpose for leftovers, so I did! It was delicious :-).
