We already know how to reduce emissions from the livestock industry, reducing the consumption of meat is one of the simplest and most effective ways to achieve this. What we lack is the will to implement and carry through the solutions. Therefore, POW Norway urge you to have a meet free week this February! We'll be posting inspirational recipes and facts regularly - to show you just how easy, and important, this is.

This is what you do

Oils, onions, garlic, fresh coriander, chili are cooked in a pan of high heat together with cumin, salt, turmeric, ground coriander and ginger for a few minutes. Add more oil if it is too dry on the pan. Then add canned tomatoes and canned chickpeas with either garam masala or spice mix. It's not a crisis if you do not have all of these spices. Add some water if necessary, the masala should have a slightly thick, juicy consistency. Let simmer for 15-20 minutes. Stir occasionally. Season with salt, sugar, chili etc. Remove the heat and stir in 1ss lemon juice. Can be eaten as it is, then it is enough for one person or server with rice or quinoa, for example, it's enough for two.





What is The easiest way to reduce our Greenhouse Gas Emissions?

If everyone in Norway eats one vegetarian meal a week, it has the same effect as removing 170 000 cars from the roads for a whole year (1). If everyone in the world turned vegetarian, it would reduce the Greenhouse Gas Emissions related to food production by 60 %. Moreover, if everyone turned vegan, it would further reduce the emissions by 10 % (2). Since food-related emissions account for about 15% of total global emissions (1), this will, in other words, have a very big effect. It may not be realistic to expect everyone to turn vegan or even vegetarian overnight, but if we all eat a little bit less meat, it will help! It might even ensure our children and grandchildren can experience the same wonderful and snowy winters we've been so lucky to live through.

1 garlic clove

Sprinkle the squash into pieces and serve in a refractory form, together with a finely chopped garlic clove, or just roast the squash whole in the oven with garlic. Pour over some good olive oil, salt and pepper and bake in the oven at 350 F/ 200 degrees until the squash is completely soft, it usually takes about 30-40 minutes depending on how big the pieces are. Clean the chickpeas and have in a different refractory form. Pour over some olive oil, salt and pepper. Peppercorns, chiliflakes, dried basil and turmeric are also good to have over, take what you have. Put in the oven at the same time as the pumpkin and shake for about 30-40 minutes. You can also simply roast all these ingredients in an iron skillet. Keep track of the chickpeas regularly, because they can burn quickly. Take out the trays and cool everything. This is when the chickpeas become crispy. Blend with 1 can of coconut milk. Have more or less coconut milk depending on how thick you want the soup. Pour the soup back into a pan and heat. Roast pine nuts with fresh sage on low to medium heat. Serve the soup hot and add pine-nuts and salt + pepper to taste.

Serves 3-4
