How to make marinated vegetables
The marinated veggies recipe is one of my favourite recipes on this blog, and I’ve been looking forward to making it for some time.
In this article, I will share how to make a vegan version of this recipe with marinated spinach, zucchini, and tomatoes.
The marinade is very simple and takes less than 20 minutes.
Marinating spinach is one easy way to add flavour to salads, sandwiches, soups, and pasta dishes.
But this marinated version also has some of the health benefits of vegan foods, including reduced inflammation and an increase in omega-3 fatty acids.
Marinated vegetables can be cooked in a pot or pan, or you can simply soak them overnight in a marinara sauce, then boil them.
Marinate the vegetables in the fridge, or place them in a blender or food processor and process until they are completely soft.
I prefer the latter.
I’ll show you how to marinate the spinach in this recipe.
Add mariname to the water and bring to a boil.
In a food processor, combine the marinamised spinach, water, lemon juice, olive oil, garlic, thyme, oregano, and salt.
Pulse until a powder forms.
Set the mixture aside.
Heat a large pan over medium heat.
Add the marinated tofu, spinach, and water mixture to the pan.
Add enough vegetable stock to cover the pan, and simmer for about 5 minutes.
Transfer the mixture to a blender and process for about 15 seconds.
Remove from heat.
Transfer spinach mixture to your food processor.
Add 1/4 cup of the marinating liquid to the blender.
Blend until smooth.
Transfer to a plate and refrigerate for at least 2 hours.
When ready to eat, sprinkle a bit of marinada over each piece of veggie.
