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.

Cookie Baking Party!

First off, I discovered the BEST sugar cookie recipe EVER from Vegan MoFo. I've seriously made it 5 or so times since I found it and and holycrap. Delish. One of the only traditions we had each year growing up was a sugar cookie making party in December where all our...

Saucy Garam Masala Noodles

Vegan MoFo Day #6  Here is a quick meal idea for a busy Monday. I threw this together for a late breakfast (yes, I'm weird) a few days ago as a let's-use-up-what's-in-the-fridge kinda meal and ended up marveling over it's deliciousness. I am now obsessed with garam...

Steamed Frothy (Soy)milk and Babka Food Porn

First steamed (soy)milk beverage with my new Aerolatte Milk Frother. Just sayin'. I made a black tea latte, and I'm in love. Thanks Santa! Or rather, my brother. You can buy one of these for as little as $5, but I wanted the one with a travel case and a 5 star rating...

Tofutti-Free Vegan Cheesecake

I've had some good vegan cheesecake before, but virtually every recipe I've ever come across has used Tofutti Better Than Cream Cheese. As this stuff is up there on the processed scale, I've been searching high and low for a Tofutti-Free recipe. At first I tried this...

Sourdough Bread: Definitely not a bad way to start a morning…

A sourdough cinnamon sugar loaf on the left, fresh rosemary with olive oil and garlic on the right. Don't be too impressed, I just made one recipe, split it into two loaves and kneaded different things into each. I let it rise for two days (3 times), but only because...

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...

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...

Vegan Chicken (Seitan) Salad

Vegan MoFo Day #21 - Vegan Chicken Salad So I thought I was done with MoFo for the year, but then I sort of accidentally made vegan chicken salad and voila! I was in Whole Paychecks, I mean, Whole Foods yesterday because I heard Tofurkeys were on super sale after...

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...

Guest Post: Mashed Peas with Sauerkraut (Erbsenbrei mit Sauerkraut)

Deutsche Version folgt unten! Over a year ago, I stumbled upon Carola's blog, twoodledrum, because of her Sauerkraut Spaghetti recipe. Since then I've bookmarked her site and check back often and have been following her recent Use Up-Along in an attempt to convince...

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,...

How To Use Dried Textured Vegetable Protein (TVP)

Maybe I am a bit slow, but it took me a really long time to figure out what the eff to do with dried TVP. It's one of those magic vegan things you see everywhere...textured vegetable protein...like nutritional yeast, and I wanted to be in the club too! Horrid...
