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...

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...

Rustic Fresh Tomato Whole Wheat Pasta with Almond Parmesean

The American road trip has begun! For the next three months until October 3rd, I'll be driving across America and back, first through the north and back through the south. Thus, you'll be seeing a lot of my travels and the vegan foods I've found during my trip here....

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,...

Guest Post: DIY Microgreens with Hydroponics

A few months ago, Chris got in touch with me about writing something for the blog about microgreens. As you may have realized by my obsessive tendencies around my balcony garden last year, I love growing things...especially things I can eat. I haven't dappled much in...

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...

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...

Mock Chickpea Tuna Salad

I had a bunch of celery to use up tonight and was too lazy for anything extravagant. An attempt at vegan mock tuna salad it was! I had made two previous attempts at this dish, one leading to this recipe and the other resulting in a big fail. The latter I blame on my...

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...

Vegan Rhubarb Lemon Bars

Wow, it's been awhile! Luckily I'm back with a doozy of a post and something pretty, too! You need pink foods for Spring, right?! Definitely. I've been oogling a lot of vegan lemon bar recipes online lately and though I've, in fact, never eaten a lemon bar, I decided...

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...

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...
