Vegetarian Monday

For me it's really important to eat at least one day completely vegetarian, no meat, no fish. My boyfriend is not all to happy with that, but since I start making wonderful dinners and not mention in advance it's going to be vegetarian he is always happy with my created meals;) So this dish is perfect for those who want to eat vegetarian, without the feeling to miss out on meat.

Meat free Monday's Dinner

for the salad
a bag of lettuce
1 avocado
half a cucumber
2 Roma tomato's
goat cheese
seed mix (pine nuts, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds)
1 eggplant in slices
a hand of diced butternut

add: vegetarian burger, my favourite when I don't want to make my own: the Provencal carré. A mix of zucchini, eggplant, goat cheese and herbs.

for the dressing
Pomegranate or raspberry vinegar
good quality olive oil
salt & pepper

Preheat the grill or oven on 225 degrees. Arrange the butternut on a peace of baking paper, slice the eggplant in rounds and place next to the butternut on a baking sheet.  Sprinkle the vegetables with olive oil, salt and pepper and let the eggplants grill for 10 minutes, turn and let them grill for another 5. The butternut needs about 20 minutes. When you get the eggplant oat, replace the space for the burgers. They need about 8 minutes. Make sure to turn them as well. In the time your vegetables are roasting it's time to prepare the rest of the salad. Grab a big salad bowl and mix the vinegar, olive oil salt and pepper in it. On top you can add the lettuce, the avocado in pieces, the cucumber in fours, the tomato in slices and after the vegetables are browned and cooled down a bit you can add the butternut and eggplant as well to the bowl, now it's time to mix it all up. Making your salad this way prevents the salad to get soggy because it combines with the dressing just before serving. Finally, crumble the goat cheese on top, get a big amount on your plate and serve with the vegetarian burger.

Bon Appetit!
