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...

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.

Pizza!

A bit of a delay due to moving back into school and all that, but here I am with the first of not one, but two posts! First, some pizza! Okay, so all I did for this one was chop up the veggies and grate the "cheese", but it came out so well! I think I finally mastered...

Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups

The same day of pumpkin everything,  I was craving candy. Saying as it was the day after Halloween, I was feeling a bit left out compared to everyone that could go door-to-door filling bags with pure sugar. I wanted to gorge myself on candy too, dammit! Why are all...

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...

Far Away – Vegan MoFo Day 8

I had nothing for the close to home prompt yesterday so I decided to take a break. "Where is home?" is certainly a complicated question these days, and my answer tends to be along the lines of, "Which one?" Now, Vegan MoFo asks me, "If you dug straight down, where...

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...

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...

Cold Brewed Coffee

Following the thought of "Things That Are Painfully Obvious", a friend sent along a link to me a week or two ago about cold brewed coffee. Now, I had heard of this before, but always assumed it was tedious or complicated and involved fancy equipment. Nope! Previously...

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 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...

How to Turn Bread Flour Into Meat: Seitan, the Old-Fashioned Way (A Visual Adventure)

Vegan MoFo Day #12! So these picture may be from back in February, but no matter! My friend Gulliver from Herbivorus Rex visited me awhile back, and he is my kitchen soul-mate and much braver than I, as he managed to turn flour into veggie meat, while I always cheat...

Sweet Potato Salsa

This is a really easy recipe that I stole from my friend Lizzi. Seriously, every time I make it and take it somewhere everyone freaks out over it. It's actually kind of silly because it's one of the easiest things I've made. People never believe it is vegan either,...
