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.

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...

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 Coconut Bacon WHAT

Let me preface this post with a story about myself. When I first moved into my flat in Brighton, England, I went through a BLT phase. Every single time one of my flatmates came into our kitchen, I was eating a BLT. I'm pretty sure I was 'That weird American girl who...

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...

Butterscotch Rice Pudding with Toasted Hazelnuts

Vegan MoFo Day #5! First week, yeah!  Right before I moved away to university, there was an awesome little rice pudding shop in Northampton, MA, that has since closed down. Of course it closed down before I finally lived there, but alas. They had some 20 varieties...

Raw Chocolate Macaroons

Another delayed recipe from my Raw Food Week Challenge. When I originally made these, I used a recipe I found randomly on the internet and didn't save. This recipe called for keeping it in the freezer to keep them solid enough, so I had this stowed away for about a...

Yummy Apple Tartlets

We just picked 1/2 bushel of apples, so there are a lot around to use up! I really wanted apple pie tonight, but I knew if I made a whole one I'd eat it all, so I improvised these little wonders in some cupcake tins. They came out surprisingly well given I pulled the...

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...

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...

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...

Red Quinoa Taco Meat (Gluten-free)

Does anyone else have the problem where they hoard random food items and then end up with a cabinet full of random things and nothing they actually want to eat at that moment? I do it all the time and then I end up with tons of obscure ingredients I don't know what...

Chocolate Apricot Scones, Homemade Coleslaw and Chickpea Scramble!

Vegan MoFo Day #14 A break from your regularly scheduled programming to bring you...food from other peoples' recipes! I spent today getting an emergency root canal and as half of my face is still numb, there were not many cooking adventures in my life. This also...
