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...

Homemade Flour Tortillas and Vegan Quesadillas

Yesterday when I was too lazy to drive to the store to buy tortillas, I was reminded of my friend Colleen mentioning making her own. Making these babies from scratch was a much more favorable option than trekking the 5 minute drive through the suburbs to Stop &...

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...

Vegan Egg Salad: Secret Ingredient = Noodles (Yes, really!)

Over the summer in Berlin, someone organized these wonderful vegan BBQs in the park that lasted all day and were filled with tons of food, hula hooping, music, dancing, yoga, slack-lining, cute dogs and new friends. Someone brought this every time and I LOVED it....

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...

Sourdough Bagels

Okay, so this recipe isn't really my own making as I followed this one over at the Fresh Loaf exactly, but as a pretty amateur bread-baker a lot of the stuff on that post is over my head, so I thought I'd summarize it here with my pictures. For more details, you...

Vegan Peanut Butter Mousse Cup Pie

I've been posting a lot of desserts lately. Can you tell I like chocolate and peanut butter? No matter, this is possibly the best dessert I've ever made. The best part is I made it up all by myself! Oh. My. Gosh. was this fabulous. Vegan Peanut Butter Mousse Cup Pie...

Bratapfel (Baked Apple)

Vegan MoFo Day #17! Last January, I worked on a smallholding in Kleinenhain, Germany for 2+ weeks through Help Exchange. Of the three farms I worked on, my time in Germany, by far, left the biggest impression on me. My hosts, Angelika and Axel, not only cooked vegan...

Peanut Butter Filled Chocolate Cookies

  I made a second attempt at these peanut butter filled chocolate cookies from the Mac & Cheese blog a few days ago and they came out really well. The first time I tried to make them, I didn't have peanut butter so in a fit of cooking-craving mania I tried to...

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...

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...

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...

Beghrir (Semolina Pancakes)

More like crepes, I came across this recipe one day at work while paging through an older issue of Food & Wine magazine on my lunch break. After having an amazing marzipan pudding made with semolina in Berlin (a recipe that will hopefully be up here soon), I've...
