Where to Eat in Copenhagen? Govinda, Of Course!

by jem614

When the usual dish in Denmark (for lunch) is usually cold meat sandwiches, what does a vegetarian eat?  Indian of course!

Mama Veg travels far and wide to bring you vegetarian options from all over the world.  This month, she traveled to Copenhagen with a friend and visited an Indian restaurant where you can almost always find vegetarian options.

What a quaint little restaurant!

 

The regular menu is mostly vegetarian but they do have some vegan options.  Their curry is delicious and has some pretty great reviews.  If you’re in Copenhagen, please check them out!

For more information (use google translate if you need to as their website is in Danish) go to Govinda Vegetarian Takeout .

Vegan Kofta Curry from Tandoor Chef Frozen Meals

by ashley

ImageWith the piquant tastes of India, Tandoor Chef has quickly become one of my favorite fast meal options. Healthier than normal Indian-American restaurant fare (no cream, less oil), yet with the same flavors and textures, Tandoor Chef has done a great job with their frozen meal lines. Even the rice tastes fresh, which is hard to find in a frozen meal. The portion sizes are great, and while the calories are a little higher than your normal frozen diet meal, they are also a lot more nutritious. I also love that the company is based here in the United States.

A fair warning for anyone not used to curry or Indian cuisine – the food has quite a spicy edge to it. I think it’s great, and I usually am sensitive to spice, however it can make my eyes water just a bit when biting into the Kofta. Great for awakening the senses, which can help beat my after lunch lull at work.

ImageThis particular meal, the Kofta (Vegetable Dumpling) Curry comes with channa masala (which is chickpeas in a tomato sauce) and spinach basmati pilaf. The pilaf is the savior to your taste buds after biting into the deliciously spicy Kofta. The ingredients are simple, with extremely few preservatives.

INGREDIENTS: KOFTA CURRY – water, tomatoes (tomatoes, tomato juice, sale, calcium chloride, citric acid), onions, squash, spices, olive oil, chickpea flour, canola oil, wheat flour, carrot, soy protein isolate, wheat farina, salt, garlic, turmeric, sugar, cabbage, green peppers, baking soda, paprika oleoresin. CHANNA MASALA – onions, water, tomatoes (tomatoes, tomato juice, salt, calcium chloride, citric acid), chickpeas, olive oil, spices, garlic, salt canola oil, mango powder, turmeric. SPINACH BASMATI PILAF – water, basmati rice, onions, spinach, carrots, olive oil, spices, garlic, sugar, turmeric.

There are 400 calories in the 283g meal, with 19g of fat and 10g of protein.

Thai Cafe Brings It Home With Their Tofu Curry

by jem614

By Jessica Michael

If you’re looking for a mild curry, and you’re vegetarian, look no further than Thai Cafe.  This little pearl of a place doesn’t get the credit it deserves.  Just at the tip of Main Street in Miami Lakes, on the way out to the Palmetto, lies a discovery of tastes waiting to happen.  Thai Cafe serves up a scrumptious meal including: Thai fried rice and Tofu Curry with Vegetables.  The sauce is the perfect thickness, the curry is so mild you can enjoy spoonful after spoonful without having to pick up a glass of water. Their service is friendly but not overwhelming, the prices are about average for the area; between $8.50 and $15 for lunch and you don’t have to wait in line for a seat.  Make sure you try their Thai Iced tea, it’s a perfect addition to your meal.

Four carrots!
