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.

Super Easy Kale “I Am Still Detoxing from New Years” Soup

This is a really simple, one-pot soup that I was imagining in my head after eating so many sweets and drinking so many cocktails that I was fantasizing about vegetables. There, I said it. Perhaps some of you are/were in the same boat as me? The ingredients are really...

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...

Vegan Ramen: 3 Ways

Yes, this is a post about ramen. Don't judge me. I figure since I've been eating so much of it, I may as well write a blog post about it. Some of it is homemade, so I'm not ashamed! The one in the picture above came from a packet though, are you shocked?! Plus,...

Sauerkraut, Gnocchi and Veggie Sausage Stirfry

Look what Germany has done to me! I cannot get enough sauerkraut. This seems like some ridiculous combination that would only make sense if you were pregnant (which I am definitely not), but it seems to make total sense in my current head space. It's very simple:...

Raw Kale Avocado and Chickpea Couscous Salad

I made this for a picnic when it was still nice and sunny out and it was a big hit! Who would have though a couscous and kale salad would get so many comments! I needed something that only used things in my pantry and balcony garden and voila! This was the recipe! I'm...

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....

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...

Famous Tofu Scramble

When I tried tofu scramble for the first time, it was chunky and bland, resembling the large uncooked and "marinated" slices of tofu my dining hall likes to serve as food. Now that I'm older and wiser, I must say my scramble has come a long way too. I've finally got...

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...

Sourdough Cinnamon Raisin Bread

My first foray into sourdough bread making, and by extension sourdough starters, was during this winter break. Needless to say, I sort of failed. My sourdough starter just wouldn't get bubbly or active enough. I think it would have maybe with more time, but eventually...

Vegan Mac-n-Cheese: The Ultimate Comfort Food

My friends rave about this recipe more than than anything else I cook and I've been asked for the recipe more times than I can count. Pleasing to vegans and carnivores alike, lucky you, written it down below for your reading pleasure! While I was abroad in England, I...
