In the spirit of sharing lots of winter wamers before we head into a new season I decided to make all my main meals in a day from Karoline Jönsson’s book Värmande Vego which means “warming veggie”. It’s a book filled with easy to cook everyday meals that are perfect for the colder seasons. Those seasons when you want some extra grounding and to be warmed up from the inside out. It’s full of hearty vegetables and roots made into soups, stews and other delicious dishes like the tortilla de patata and fried edamame sandwich I’m sharing in this post. And! They’re all vegan. Yay!

For this day of eating I chose three dishes that looked delicious in the book which enticed me to try them. They are all savoury but with different flavours and textures. I like how they contain relatively easy to find ingredients and are rather fuss-free and straight forward to make. Having now tried all of them I did really enjoy my day of eating from the book.  My favourite being the roasted corn soup, but this might be because sweetcorn is one of my all time favourite foods. It was closely followed by the fried edamame sandwich and third came the tortilla de patata. While they were all yummy I would have liked some sort of sauce to go with the tortilla de patata to brighten the dish up. A simple lemon tahini sauce I think would taste great with it or a tomato sauce similar to the one you make for patatas bravas. Just a little thought that you might like to incorporate if you decide to try the recipe for yourself!

I really hope you enjoy these recipes and like the video as well. It was a joy to make and fun to cook up someone else’s recipes for a change. Let me know if you try any of the dishes, I’d love to hear what you think of them!
