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.

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...

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...

Thai-licious Vegan Massaman Curry

I took a risk last time I went out for Thai food and strayed away from my beloved Pad Thai to try some Massaman Curry my friends recommended. It was definitely a good decision, this stuff was gooood. Sadly, my wallet keeps me from indulging in this delicacy as...

Vegan Chocolate Graham Cracker Cake

Vegan graham cracker cake?! Yes graham crackers can be something besides crust or s'mores. Also, I lied. In Germany we don't have graham crackers. I used "Haferkeks" (oat cookies), but the original non-vegan recipe I based this on used graham crackers so I think any...

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...

Stale Bread? Nahhh. Croutons!

This is more of a tip than a recipe, get ready! So whenever I bake bread there are always the sad, mutilated pieces unfit for sandwiches that always happen because I use a bread knife that's cheap and not sharp enough. I then put all the mutilated pieces on a plate...

Thai Fried Pineapple Rice with Tofu

Oddly enough, when discovering a bag of frozen pineapple in the freezer, my first thought was not "smoothies", "pineapple upside down cake" or "yogurt", but instead...rice! If you have not tried pineapple in a savory dish, believe me, you are missing out. This dish is...

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...

WTF are Collards?!: Easy Collards with Potatoes and Tofu

Vegan MoFo Day #1! This was literally something I threw together. I got a bunch of collards in my farm share, and while I think I've eaten them before, I had no idea exactly how to go about making them delicious. I tried Googling things, but everything was either...

Vegan Chard & Artichoke Dip

Vegan MoFo Day #8! My housemate and I went dumpster diving the other day and managed to acquire 8 POUNDS of artichokes. It was my first time dumpstering and I'm excited to go again! I am pretty proud that this was almost entirely free as the artichokes and onions were...

Cheaters’ Miso Soup & Homemade Mushroom Broth

Okay, so this doesn't involve any formal dashi or kombu or seaweed of any sort. The tofu was fried and there was kale and noodles, but damn, you haters can hate because this shizz was tasty. And easy! And did not involve buying new ingredients, which would be pretty...

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...
