Ingredients of Colourful Vegan Platter

  • 1 1/2 cup boiled,soaked overnight kala chana
  • 1 broccoli
  • 4 tablespoon boiled lima beans
  • 4 tablespoon boiled quinoa
  • 1/2 onion
  • salt as required
  • chilli flakes as required
  • 1/2 teaspoon lime juice
  • 250 gm silken tofu
  • 1 medium boiled sweet potato
  • 1/2 capsicum (green pepper)
  • 1 1/2 tablespoon boiled peas

  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin powder
  • 1 1/2 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil

Step 1 Prepare the black chickpea patty To prepare this delicious platter that has all sorts of colour in it, in a grinder jar, add boiled black chickpeas or kale chana along with onion, garlic, 1/2 tsp salt and cumin powder. Take out the mixture and make patties with it. Since the mixture has no strong binding agent, cook them in an air fryer or oven for some time (10-15 minutes) and then brush with oil and cook it on a pan till crisp.

Step 2 Cook silken tofu and capsicum Cut the silken tofu into cubes and air fry them for 5-7 minutes. If you do not have an air fryer at home, brush the silken tofu with olive oil and salt for 10 minutes and then cook in the oven. Next, put a pan over medium flame and then add capsicum in it. Add a pinch of salt and chilli flakes in it and cook for less than a minute. Finally, add the silken tofu and stir for a minute again. Remove once done.

Step 3 Saute lima beans In the same pan of cooked tofu, add build and chopped lima beans with salt and black pepper as per your taste and saute for a minute.

Step 4 Cook quinoa with peas Now, put another pan on medium flame and heat ½ tablespoon olive oil in it. Then, add salt, black pepper or chilli flakes (according to your taste) and add boiled peas. Cook for a while and then add boiled quinoa in it. If peas are not pre-boiled, you can add peas with a bit of water, when peas are tender add quinoa.

Step 5 Toss sweet potatoes in lemon juice and steam broccoli florets Next, peel and cut sweet potatoes in round slices in a bowl. Sprinkle sea salt along with a bit of lemon juice and toss well. Wash the broccoli florets and steam for 3-5 minutes with a pinch of salt over it.
