This is a fabulous recipe if you need to make something for a potluck or a brunch. The paté is wonderful on toast with veganaise, but also as a main dish with rice or quinoa and a salad or green vegetables on the side. It’s delicious both warm & cold.

  • 2 tbsp flour
  • 1 to 2 tbsp fresh lemon juice, to taste
  • 2 tbsp minced fresh parsley
  • 2 tbsp nutritional yeast
  • 2 tsp turmeric powder
  • 1 tsp asafetida powder
  • 1 tsp paprika powder
  • 1/2 tsp of chili flakes
  • Freshly ground black pepper

Preparation

  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C.
  2. In a large bowl, grate the tofu & carrots.
  3. Add the seeds, spices, oil, tamari/ shoyu, flour, nutritional yeast, lemon juice, parsley & mix everything well together.
  4. Oil a baking dish & add the mixture.
  5. Place the dish in the oven for about 20 to 25 minutes until golden.

This is a tweaked recipe, the original recipe in Dutch.

Join the Brussels Yoga Mala 2019: join the 108 Sun Salutations for charity

Since 2010, a bunch of very motivated yogins in Brussels organize the Yoga Mala around the Summer Solstice. All participants donate some money and all the proceeds go to a charity. This year the mala will be organised in September, around the Autumn Solstice, on a Saturday morning.

Why 108 ? Good question, Shiva Rea has written a beautiful article about it, read it here.

So please join in on Saturday morning, 21 September 2019, as the Yoga community comes together for the 10th time in a celebration of the unity of Yoga to raise money for charity (cause still to be decided).

As we welcome the Autumn Solstice let us offer our gratitude to life by saluting and honouring the Sun. We will practice a Yoga Mala, a prayer in motion of 108 rounds of Surya Namaskara (Sun Salutations).

Sun Salutations_Sivananda YogaThe practice will be a meditative flow, and whether we as individuals are able to do 1 or 108 rounds, the importance lies in our participation and intention – as a collective we will complete the Mala. There will be different teachers leading the rounds of Surya Namaskar, the practice is the Sivananda Hatha Yoga tradition.

Being there together in a spirit of loving-kindness, peace and joy is what it’s all about. And who knows what wonders will come from that…

The event is family-friendly, so children, partners and grandparents are warmly welcome. There will be Yoga for kids & mandala coloring in parallel with the Mala, and other fun activities. Tea and biscuits for after!

You can also make a difference, so come and make it happen together with the Brussels’ yoga community.

Practical information:
Date: Saturday 21 September 2019
Time: 10h30 until approximately 12h00
Venue: Autoworld Museum Mezzanine, Cinquantenaire Park
Cost: EUR 3 Museum entrance fee, plus a donation for charity. The suggested donation is at least EUR 13 (incl the entrance fee), but we appeal to everyone to give what they can.

“O nourishing sun,

Solitary traveller, controller,

Source of life for all creatures, spread your light

And subdue your dazzling splendour

So that I may see your blessed Self.

Even that very Self am I!”
