Vegan Koh Phangan Guide – Vegan Food Heaven or New Age Hell?

I had very mixed feelings about Koh Phangan the whole time I was there. The vegan food was great, and it was chill AF. I took some of the best yoga classes of my life in the most gorgeous studios overlooking the jungle.... Want to see a video version of this post?...

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.

Vegan Turkish Kabak Yemegi

Vegan MoFo Day #2! While visiting a good friend in Bonn, Germany, in January, she made this for us and I promptly scribbled down the ingredients in my travel notebook of sorts. In the little ramekin is plain soy yogurt. Normally, I'd eat it with something more like...

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...

Vegan Cheesemaking Guide – Vegan MoFo Day 6

So you want to make your own vegan cheese? Today's MoFo prompt is to write about comfort food - and vegan cheesy things are certainly a comfort food for me! I've had this post sitting in my drafts for ages, so I figured it was finally time to finish it up and post it....

Vegan Cappuccino Muffins

Vegan MoFo Day #4! It took two tries to perfect this recipe, but holycrap are they delicious. The first time they came out tasting good, but didn't rise at all, which I attribute to a wet:dry ratio with too much, well...wet. Oops! I didn't account for the fact that...

Vegan Pear and Garam Masala Flatbread

A few years ago one of my Couchsurfing hosts made us a flatbread with pears and garam masala. It was such an interesting and yummy combination that it stuck in my head for years until I finally recreated it myself here in Berlin. We've already mentioned how I'm...

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 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,...

Russian Chocolate Cheesecake (Russischer Zupfkuchen): No Tofutti Necessary!

Vegan MoFo Day #11! This is another recipe I've translated from German to share with you here. The original I found on Twoodledrum's Russischer Zupfkuchen post. Russian Chocolate Cheesecake was the closest translation I could think of for this and although it has...

Mochi Truffles (Riceflour Truffles)

Vegan MoFo Day #15 All credit for this goes to my friend, Gulliver! I believe we are kitchen soulmates as everything he makes in his kitchen wants to be in my belly. Last November, he posted on my Facebook wall asking me to test a recipe for him, which was born during...

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...

Sourdough Bagels

Okay, so this recipe isn't really my own making as I followed this one over at the Fresh Loaf exactly, but as a pretty amateur bread-baker a lot of the stuff on that post is over my head, so I thought I'd summarize it here with my pictures. For more details, you...

Vegan Barszcz (Borscht)

Vegan MoFo Day #3! I have fond memories of drunkenly spooning very large amounts of borscht into my mouth in the kitchen of a hostel in Krakow, Poland. While that borscht came from a box (but it was Poland, so it still counts as real?), it was seriously the best drunk...
