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...

Vegan Dumplings and How to Steam Things without a Steamer Basket

A week ago I realized the obvious: You don't need a steamer to steam things. Also, you can use wonton wrappers to make things besides wontons! The novelty! This made the possibilities of my wonton wrappers endless! Not only could I make dumplings, I could make...

Balcony Garden Bounty and My Fresh Smoked Tofu Urban Gardening Salad

Vegan MoFo Day #1! Summer is almost over, but let's not speak about that. I thought I'd use the first day of MoFo to take advantage of the new September MoFo time....no Thanksgiving food here! It's not cold and miserable yet and there is still stuff growing! On my...

Brownie Cheesecake With Coffee Frosting

Vegan MoFo Day #15! It was my friend and former flatmate from Prague Andrea's birthday today and her and her boyfriend Vojtech were visiting us in Berlin for a long weekend. Yesterday Vojtech and I schemed a secret birthday cake plan every time Andrea went to the...

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,...

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...

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...

Vegan S’mores Sugar Cookie Bars

You guys, I've discovered the vegan goldmine. You know all that sugar cookie dough you have leftover from the holidays in your freezer (or is it just me)? Make this. Do not hesitate, just do it. Yes, it takes some time, but within it you find chocolate, vegan dulce de...

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...

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...

How To Make Seitan: An Illustrated Guide

Now if you really wanted to be a Level 5 hardcore vegan (or just don't have access to vital wheat gluten/gluten flour) you would make seitan using the flour + rinsing method. This involves rinsing wheat flour until all the starch dissolves and you're left with only...
