Forty days without meat : day 8


  • Musli with milk (surprise!)
  • Orange juice


  • Chervil soup (I’d never thought you could make soup out of something akin to parsley – live and learn, they love it in Belgium!)
  • The usual three half sandwiches (spread cheese, sliced cheese, veggie salami – Delhaize brand)


  • Rice with spinach, raisins & pine nuts
  • Quorn cordon bleu


  • Apple
  • Fresh cheese

Bonus recipe:

Rice with spinach, raisins & pine nuts


  • 125 gr whole grain rice
  • 400 ml water
  • 300 gr frozen spinach, thawed in the microwave, liquid removed but not squeezed dry
  • 1 shallot, chopped
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2-3 tbsp raisins
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 2-3 tbsp pine nuts

Make it:

  1. In the bowl of a rice cooker (or a stove top pot) put all ingredients except pine nuts. Cook until all liquid has been absorbed.
  2. Before serving, heat a pan until very hot and dry roast the pine nuts for a minute or two, shaking often, being careful that they don’t burn.
  3. Mix pine nuts into rice, serve warm

Makes two side servings.
