As you might know I went to South Africa two months ago. I really loved it there! You can watch my South Africa video if you want to see my highlights in just 3 minutes. As a real foodie I’ve been to many great restaurant and even though the South Africans love to eat meat, I was able to find great vegetarian dishes.
Now that I’m back home I wanted to create my own vegetarian version of a South African meal. Bobotie is probably the most well-known signature dish of South Africa, it’s an oven dish with minced meat and an egg-based topping. I created a vegetarian Bobotie simply by replacing the minced meat by vegetarian minced meat.
I’ve got the recipe for you on this page. But what’s even more excited is that you can win a trip for 2 people to South Africa if you get to your kitchen and make a South African dish. Eating a delicious dish and winning a price…I’d call that a win-win situation! You can also win a dinner for two at a South African restaurant, so there’s even more chance of winning. (This contest is only open to inhabitants of the Netherlands)
All you have to do is visit the Smaaklik Suid-Afrika page and make one of the 3 recipes on that website. You can find a bobotie recipe but also a vegetarian ‘braai’ (barbecue) recipe. Upload a picture of your dish on their website and don’t forget to share it on Facebook as well. Tag Mijn Zuid-Afrika reis and Anne Travel Foodie in your Facebook picture to get more views!
The chef will choose a winner from each dish and then you can gather votes on Facebook. Let me know if you’re joining so that I can vote for you!
