Thinking about what to eat every week can be quite a challenge. To ensure that you do not put the same dishes on the table every week, we are happy to inspire you with handy weekly menus. This week we’re going for the rainbow on your plate. That is not only a visual spectacle, many health scientists also swear that it is the key to a healthy lifestyle. And of course the Culy editors make sure that the dishes are also mouth-watering.
We already wrote about it in our article about the food trends of 2022 : Korean cuisine will gain even more popularity in the coming year. No wonder: dishes such as kimchi jjigae , bulgogi or japchae are pure comfort food and we love them too. That’s why we came up with a plant-based version of one of the most iconic Korean dishes. Vegan bibimbap it is!

Stuffed tomatoes are classically often made with a minced meat filling, but we bring this classic dish to the Arab atmosphere for once. We exchange the minced meat mixture for a filling of couscous, crumbled halloumi, pomegranate seeds and fresh herbs. Delicious.
You can wake us up for crispy tempeh anyway, but especially for this tempeh in gochujang. This Korean chili paste gives this beloved (vegan) meat substitute a super nice kick. Delicious in a rice bowl with vegetables, coriander and peanuts.

We find this Asian curry with duck warming and refreshing at the same time. The kick of the spices, the fresh lemongrass, the aromatic fresh herbs (if you can get Thai basil, that’s really an added value) and the baked duck: a feast. We make this curry with sweet potato, but you can of course also make it with other vegetables, such as pumpkin, red pepper, onion and/or carrot. Remember that rainbow huh?

We also sometimes find it a challenge to come up with a quick healthy lunch. This quick peanut dip with vegetables is ideal. So ready and ideal to use up your leftovers from the week.

Traditionally, yakisoba is a Japanese wok dish with buckwheat noodles , but we use those tasty thick udon noodles. In any case, you can use a lot of vegetables in this dish!
