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.

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...

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...

Guest Post: Let’s Jam! Brian’s Lemon Vanilla Peach Jam

Now that the last few days of summer are slipping away, it's time for some autumn-goodness. My good friend Brian has a jam-tastic recipe for you, the pictures of which have me drooling. He's going to walk you through the process of making your own lemon vanilla peach...

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...

Steel Cut Oats Pancakes & Documenting a Pancake Adventure

For those who don't know, I spent most of my year abroad. In fact, these travels have continued now that I'm back in the US, which is what led to this pancake feast in Mystic, CT with a friend who was working there. You can't have brunch without pancakes and there are...

Nom Nom’s Vegan Chicken Noodle Soup

This vegan chicken noodle soup is the easiest thing to make ever. I often throw a me-sized bowl together, which is actually pretty large (see above), but it's soup, right? My apartment is real cold, kids, don't judge. If I'm constantly ingesting warm liquids it makes...

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 & Shop...

Ghanaian Red Red Stew (Gluten-free)

Here's a recipe for you all after tons of travel posts! I actually made this during the winter, after being inspired by a similar dish at the Berlin Street Food Thursday. I had some black-eyed peas sitting around and I didn't know what to do with them. I found this...

Ode to Vegan Cherry Pie Oatmeal

Got this beauty at the Pullman Hotel in Dubai, where my colleagues are staying. The first breakfast I had there was a bit lackluster, except for this Pakistani-style Aloo Ghobi that was delicious (yes, for breakfast). After the disappointment with the first...

Vegan White Chocolate

I've been meaning to make vegan white chocolate ever since I got some food-grade cocoa butter for Christmas. I used a recipe from the Bitter Sweet Blog and went with it. Man, it was a lot easier than I expected to make the ever-elusive vegan white chocolate and so...

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,...

Quicker Pierogies Using Wonton Wrappers!

Vegan MoFo Day #10! Back into the realm of Polish food, we have one of my favorites: Pierogies. Dudes, when I was in Krakow this year there were literally 24 HOUR PIEROGIE PLACES. Heaven! The idea of a pierogie is simple, you have a basic flour dough wrapper, with...

My Carry-On Only Packing List (Europe Friendly)

I've been holding back on this post as I wasn't sure if the world really needed another packing list. However, as someone based in Germany, I was SO tired getting excited by an item on someone's packing list...just to realize it's only available in the United States....
