Samosas 

This fried triangle is a snack that originated in the Middle East and used to be for royalty only. Nowadays, it’s one of the most famous snacks from India and loved by everyone. Fun fact: even though they might look fatty and are fried; with the right filling, this can be anything but a guilt snack. Classic ingredients include potatoes, chopped coriander, and garam masala. In our version, we’ve got Sensational Mince for added protein and fibers. Find how to prepare our delicious samosas here.

Sopa de lima 

This delicious lime soup has as much flavor as the country it’s from: Mexico. Over there, every family has their own secret recipe. Don’t worry, we won’t keep ours a secret. We’ve exchanged the traditionally used chicken stock with vegetable stock. This soup has loads of great ingredients like avocado, tomatoes, red onion and our Mexican Marinated Pieces. There’s also Jalapeño and chipotle peppers so you can make this as mild or spicy as you like. Check out the recipe here

Gado Gado  

Gado Gado is a Javanese vegetarian classic that’s originally served cold with peanut sauce, rice, and veggies. Our version has a delicious sauce and comes with our Asian Marinated Pieces. This recipe is fully vegan, but if you prefer it the classic way, just add a hard-boiled egg. The recipe is waiting for you here

Arabic salad 

Falafel salads are great for those hot summer nights. The origin of falafel as a snack is unknown, but the love for falafel is worldwide. This dish packs a lot of flavor thanks to the turmeric, tahini and mint. Pomegranate seeds are added as a fresh counterpart and you can use our Spinach, or natural Falafel.
