Berlin Vegan Guide

Berlin Vegan Guide

Vegan Berlin is an exciting place. This list is ever-changing and growing, so check back often! These are places I go to relatively frequently and are my favorites...or I've heard a ton of good things about them. There is so, so much more...to list all the vegan...

Vegan Street Food in Penang, Malaysia

Vegan Street Food in Penang, Malaysia

I ate so much vegan street food in Penang, Malaysia that needed its own post. While at first I didn't think Penang lived up to all the (vegan) hype, the street food was a game changer. Of course it takes a bit longer to figure out which street food is vegan as most...

Recipes

Did you know this page started out as a vegan food blog? Here’s some of my vegan recipe posts. You can check out my Vegan Recipe Index, or my Readers’ Favorites too.

Steamed Frothy (Soy)milk and Babka Food Porn

First steamed (soy)milk beverage with my new Aerolatte Milk Frother. Just sayin'. I made a black tea latte, and I'm in love. Thanks Santa! Or rather, my brother. You can buy one of these for as little as $5, but I wanted the one with a travel case and a 5 star rating...

Bratapfel (Baked Apple)

Vegan MoFo Day #17! Last January, I worked on a smallholding in Kleinenhain, Germany for 2+ weeks through Help Exchange. Of the three farms I worked on, my time in Germany, by far, left the biggest impression on me. My hosts, Angelika and Axel, not only cooked vegan...

Vegan Jewish Apple Cake

This cake was sexual. Oh my goodness. I went apple-picking with friends and am still trying to use up apples. This cake used 8, which seemed like a solid number to use up. I'm not usually a big cake person, I prefer brownies and all the ooey gooey stuff. But, my...

Basic Sourdough Bread

It's a wonder I haven't committed this recipe to memory yet. I'm not really sure why I haven't posted this, but this is the recipe I use to make my basic sourdough loaves. I've come a long way from my first attempt, let me tell you, which was not much more than a...

Mustard Marinated Textured Vegetable Protein (TVP) Cutlets

 This recipe was hiding in my How to Use Dried TVP post, but it gets a bit lost in there so I thought it deserved it's own post. I just made these mustard marinated TVP cutlets again and remembered how delicious they are, so here you go! The picture above is before it...

Homemade Flour Tortillas and Vegan Quesadillas

Yesterday when I was too lazy to drive to the store to buy tortillas, I was reminded of my friend Colleen mentioning making her own. Making these babies from scratch was a much more favorable option than trekking the 5 minute drive through the suburbs to Stop &...

How to Make the Most of Your Pumpkin: Everything But the Stem

It's that time of year and as far as I can remember, I've never done anything with a pumpkin besides carve a face in it and let it rot outside. Thus, with two sugar pumpkins around, it had to mean roasted pumpkin seeds, fresh pumpkin puree and pumpkin pie! It took...

Marzipan Semolina Pudding (Grießflammeri)

Last time I was in Berlin, I got a marzipan semolina pudding parfait at Goodies that was to die for. Ever since then I've been trying to figure out what was in it (semolina in a dessert...weird) and how to recreate it. I think I finally touched upon it! This is based...

Fresh Ginger Lemon “Honey” Tea

Vegan MoFo Day #12 We'll leave the debate about honey elsewhere, but this tea is simple and delicious no matter what sweetner you use. Almost too simple to blog about, this got me through last winters' cold season. I dug these pictures out from the depths, having...

Vegan Rosemary Potato Flatbread

 I'm on a roll with these flatbreads, I know. This one is inspired by one of the famous squats in Berlin, Köpi, which has a monthly vegan pizza night on the first Saturday of the month. Here you get a brick-oven pizza (Steinofenpizza) for 2,50€ and vegan cupcakes for...

Vegan Chocolate Graham Cracker Cake

Vegan graham cracker cake?! Yes graham crackers can be something besides crust or s'mores. Also, I lied. In Germany we don't have graham crackers. I used "Haferkeks" (oat cookies), but the original non-vegan recipe I based this on used graham crackers so I think any...

Chili Infused Vodka & A Firecracker Cocktail Just in Time for Summer!

Now, it's pretty rare I experience an entirely new flavor sensation, but man-o-man, this drink blew my mind. First discovered when checking out the amazing restaurant, Miya's Sushi in New Haven, Connecticut a few years ago. I ordered their cocktail called 'Bonobo...
