Vegan Kuala Lumpur – A 4 Day Layover in Kuala Lumpur

This is not a guide, so much as a post about how to do a short layover in Kuala Lumpur as a vegan. KL is a major airport hub, but it's worth stopping over for at least a few days for the vegan eats alone. I didn't really think much of KL at all, but decided to stay a...

Vegan Bali – What I Ate During A Week in Ubud

Vegan Bali, I've been following pictures of amazing-looking food for ages. Even so, I cut Bali out of my itinerary at first. There is just so much hype, and this contrarian can't handle it. Then I realized it would cost be the same in flights to stop over in Bali on...

Melbourne is Vegan Junkfood Heaven – A Semi-Guide

I spent three weeks in Melbourne in February 2018 and let me tell you, vegan Melbourne is on POINT. Especially the vegan junk food. I'm not a clean eating kinda person by any means, but after three weeks even I was craving salads. Not to say there isn't good healthy...

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.

Yummy Apple Tartlets

We just picked 1/2 bushel of apples, so there are a lot around to use up! I really wanted apple pie tonight, but I knew if I made a whole one I'd eat it all, so I improvised these little wonders in some cupcake tins. They came out surprisingly well given I pulled the...

Vegan Peanut Butter Mousse Cup Pie

I've been posting a lot of desserts lately. Can you tell I like chocolate and peanut butter? No matter, this is possibly the best dessert I've ever made. The best part is I made it up all by myself! Oh. My. Gosh. was this fabulous. [amd-zlrecipe-recipe:12] After the...

Savory Mochi or Rice Flour Gnocchi

Vegan MoFo Day #11! Yes, you read that right. Savory mochi (rice flour gnocchi). We're talking garlic, onions, peppers and olive oil, kids. Get ready. Some of you may remember my foray (read: obsession) with the rice gnocchi I could buy in Prague. I was really...

Garlic Chili Spaghetti with Broccoli (Aglio e Olio)

This is so simple, it's barely even a recipe, but delicious anyway, so why not? As long as you have some pasta, olive oil, garlic and some chili flakes around, you're good to go! This was inspired by some recipe I stumbled upon a year ago, which I lost. Oops. I used...

Vegan Chard & Artichoke Dip

Vegan MoFo Day #8! My housemate and I went dumpster diving the other day and managed to acquire 8 POUNDS of artichokes. It was my first time dumpstering and I'm excited to go again! I am pretty proud that this was almost entirely free as the artichokes and onions were...

Vegan Brunch

Vegan MoFo Post #16   Sometimes it's the simple things. Tofu scramble, fried up veggie sausage, sauteed mushrooms with garlic and some fried potato hash with peppers, garlic and onions. Delicious. What's your favorite recipe for tofu scramble? Here is my Famous Tofu...

Sweet Potato Coconut Garlic Mash

This happened by accident this morning. I'm experimenting with eating more gluten free things, or rather, trying to drag myself out of the spaghetti-filled haze I got stuck in since winter due to lack of time and brain space! I'm not usually a big fan of sweet potato,...

Vegan Sausages With Soy Flour

A friend of mine (hi Gulliver) mentioned that he found making seitan with soy flour instead of chickpea flour or beans yielded a better texture. That was all I needed before I set to the kitchen! I just ordered 5 kilos of vital wheat gluten from the online vegan store...

Beghrir (Semolina Pancakes)

More like crepes, I came across this recipe one day at work while paging through an older issue of Food & Wine magazine on my lunch break. After having an amazing marzipan pudding made with semolina in Berlin (a recipe that will hopefully be up here soon), I've been...

Vegan Hungarian Goulash

Excuse the bad picture, but this was delicious. While I was in Budapest a couple weeks ago, a new friend I met through Couchsurfing invited me over to attempt a vegan goulash. Everyone was skeptical, but I think we pulled it off! There was a lot of paprika involved....

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...

Chocolate Banana Almond Butter Pie

Bananas, chocolate and almonds make a good combination. This was another one of those raw recipes that I ended up un-rawifying, but it was delicious as I'm sure its raw counterpart is also. I got it from the blog Adventures of Raw Goddess Heathy, which I am a big fan...
