When I want to cook something tasty in a hurry, I take a box of frozen beans out of the chamber and some vegetables out of the fridge. I put everything in the pot and after 30 minutes I have delicious home-cooked food – vegan and gluten-free. It’s so easy to cook fast, it just takes a little planning. Variety and a good combination of products are very important for a balanced gluten-free vegan diet.
I buy more of the main products I use – rice, peeled millet, amaranth and buckwheat, as well as beans, chickpeas, brown and yellow lentils, raw seeds and nuts. And in smaller quantities I take quinoa, gluten-free pasta, mung beans, peeled yellow peas, corn and soy flour. I buy fresh fruits and vegetables in very small quantities almost every day because they spoil quickly. I grow my sprouts and ponies personally – so I can be sure of their quality, and the variety is greater. Some of the green leafy vegetables we eat, I grow on our balcony all year round. To prepare dishes with beans quickly, I have a little trick. I soak the beans in water with a little baking soda for 48 hours – so the seeds are activated and the inhibitors come out. I wash the beans, put them with water on the stove and when it boils I throw away the water with the foam and wash well. Again, I put the beans on the stove to boil with water. I put the boiled and cooled beans in boxes by weighing them on the kitchen scale and then put them in the refrigerator compartment. So I always have cooked beans ready, I just take a box from the chamber and add it to the dish – I often don’t even defrost it beforehand.
